“An investigative and exploratory hands-on gloves-off study into the practice of putting things ‘off”. Sometimes the only way to get something done is to do two dozen other things first.”

I was nosing around to find a link to share one of my favorite books of all time, when I found this lovely little talk that was done at the AIGA conference in 2013. Also, this.

And this:

It’s a sad day for journalism.
I highly recommend watching the documentary on The New York Times, Page One. Not just entertaining, it’s an important beacon of light on what we take for granted when it comes to good journalism.


While doing some research for work that involves the use of vintage images, I stumbled on this etsy shop that sells original prints from old books. The idea of a beautiful old book being cut up makes me sad, but I couldn’t resist paging through the entire shop. I ended up buying these three, and I have to admit I’m happy that they’ll be beaming boldly on my walls, vs being closed up on the shelf.





My favorite Instagram feed of the moment (and many passing and future moments) is coming from @presentandcorrect — in a time when we are being inundated with bespoke online design shops, they are standing apart. Plus, they sell things like this, this and this. And this.

I am currently away on vacation. If you are in need of assistance and unsure of how to get away on your own, I highly recommend checking out the latest update to Tinybop’s app, Plants, available for iOS devices. It includes the addition of the Grasslands biome, an excellent get-away that you can take on your couch, at your desk, or a nearby park. And yes, we did make this app for kids (as we do all our apps), but I think it’s perfect for anyone who’s just a tad bit curious about the world we live in.

At work, been chatting with my friend/colleague about these interactive sculptures. Executed in a mechanical way, they so simply use something tangible to capture chance and beauty.


From Dutch Profile: Karel Martens :

“…So you don’t need to worry, as long as people are sympathetic.”


Just when you think web design really can’t get all that exciting, a site like this comes around. Simple, but really beautifully executed. From COS:

To celebrate our arrival in the US, we’ve gathered a collection of things we love from across America – people, places and objects from each of the 50 states.

And, looking forward to seeing COS in America. For a mass brand, I’m impressed by the level of consideration they put into everything they do. Curious as to how well they will do on this side of the pond.
