WARHOL x GREATNESS ///

Late last year some prints done by Andy Warhol for his friend Richard Weisman were stolen from the owner’s home. The actual Polaroids that Warhol took, which inspired the prints themselves went on display at Danziger Projects last year in an exhibit titled Greatness. They capture some really amazing sports stars like Wayne Gretzky, Muhammad...

NIKE FOOTBALL ///

This has been everywhere and if you’ve been avoiding it you should just quit it and watch. The new spot for Nike Football (yes, of course it’s soccer, but you knew that already didn’t you) by W+K Amsterdam is inspiring, entertaining and best of all, reminds us why the world loves this game so much....

EMECO x COKE – NAVY CHAIR ///

I’m sure you’ve seen this chair everywhere by now. Coke and Emeco refresh the classic Navy chair, originally designed for the U.S. Navy back in the 1940s, by making it out of 111 recycled Coca-Cola soda bottles. I went over to Design Within Reach yesterday and took a look at it. It’s really gorgeous. The...

PORTIA WELLS ///

Portia Wells‘ work has always amazed me. Her design projects also serve as a platform for artistic ideation and social commentary about the objects we consume and acquire. I’m always surprised at how each time I look at a particular work I come across a new and unexpected thought behind it.

100 COLORS/WRITINGS/DAYS ///

This is an older Design Observer post that I recently rediscovered and I love it so much I have to share it with you guys. Everyday for 100 days Rachel Berger picked a random paint chip out of a bag and wrote a short reaction to it. The results are beautiful.

JÓNSI TOUR SET DESIGN ///

I’m very jealous of my friends who already have tickets to a Jónsi show in the area, but this made things even worse. Fifty Nine Productions shares what they’ve got in store for the set design and performance aspects of Jónsi’s new tour.

SOCIAL SHOPPING ///

Social Shopping Comes to Levi’s With facebook connect popping up everywhere, it’s no surprise that e-commerce is turning to the power of facebook sharing to make a more robust shopping experience. It’s a matter of time before everyone is on the band wagon, but for now this is fun and unique!

HOUSE INDUSTRIES ///

I’ve always been enamored with House Industries. Even as I first really learned what graphic design was I distinctly remember getting their catalog in the mail; the metallic ink, the throwback logo designs, design parodies of cultural ephemera, it’s all stuck with me. Literally. I’ve kept all the catalogs. As my wife, kids and I...
