Hahaha, Intramurial Poop Champion ’08 – ’09.
Check out this really interesting video by The Verge about Google’s improved design sensibility.
A lot, lot, lot has been made of the war between Apple and Google; iOS and Android, and I’ve definitely taken a stance, but it’s easy to overlook the fact that this whole back-and-forth is a real win for the design industry.
I know I’m not the first one by any means to highlight this trend, but I just want to reiterate how this whole thing makes me happy as both a designer and a consumer. I mean, it’s really upping our value as professional designers as companies shift from seeing design as just the pretty finishing touches to a part of the backbone of what makes a company, product, or service great.
Anyway, reeling in this rant … companies are making great strides in the area of design … that makes me excited to see what’s going to produced as a result … and that makes me happy.
I really like the idea of living in a well-designed, smaller space, so this is really interesting to me (not for all I’m sure).
I just like how smaller living spaces force you to edit the number of things you own. This may have been brought about by my former obsession with Hoarders. (Now I’m all up on Long Island Medium — doesn’t Theresa Caputo’s head remind you of the Lulu Lemon logo?)
Anyway — it’s quality over quantity, non? Now, if the rent would just be proportionate to the size ….
Uhhhh, this ad for Kim Kardashian perfume totally read as “CLAM” when I first saw it in a blog sidebar.
They should have not gone for the art deco thing, or just embraced the much-more-fitting name of “CLAM” seeing as how, you know ….
Also, what’s with being on every side of the box? It’s like she’s trying to shove it down our
throa — no, wait, not going there.
I pulled this on off of Opening Ceremony’s Instagram feed. Love this jacket, but do you think I’d get flack wearing it around the city?
My hardest city affiliations are with an East Village gay bar, a gymnastics gym I haven’t been to in two years, and Popeye’s on 14th Street. I think I’d be in the clear?I think?
Happy holiday Friday!Read More
