Rock’n Paper (No Scissors Required)

Inspired by seasonal flowers, these All Year Rings are the necessary accessory for any paper lover. The pieces deliver flat and the rings are pre-cut / scored from thick, white stock to make fabrication a snap. Just think, a DIY bit of finger decor for every month of the year!

“The world is changing. Some people are hip to it, others are not. If you want to be able to afford groceries in five years, I’d recommend listening closely to the former and avoiding the latter.Just my two cents.”

HUGH MacLEOD, from Ignore Everybody and 39 Other Keys to Creativity


Enjoy a Colorful Stay

Now you can sleep, lounge and meet in perfect color-matched harmony. Read more here.

Designer as Author

Sheesh! I’ve got, no lie, 1000+ listings in the feeds this morning and of course I want to sift through it all in the event that I missed something great. It’s the short, 1.5 day biz trips when I don’t want to be burdened by a laptop (one more bag to carry!) that truly underscore the value of an iPad. Maybe the 2nd generation…

Anyway. Here’s a site that caught me eye this a.m. — Unleashed : SVA MFA Designer as Author Thesis Projects. Brilliant student work from one of our nation’s top art institutions, the School of Visual Arts.

Haven’t had a chance to thoroughly cull through, but first person american, poetiq, two wings, and spoonful looked interesting. Actually, the whole site looks fairly juicy — just gotta get through those 1000+ feed items first.
