The lyrics to David Bowie’s Space Oddity imagined as a children’s book by illustrator, Andrew Kolb. So clever. So cute. I’d love to see a whole series of these. I’m certain my nephews would be big fans of an AC/CD Big Balls inspired book.
A nice collection of beautiful vintage-mod packaging design.
Here’s a little poster I slapped together. Its inspired by yesterday’s film shoot with a beekeeper.
It’s been a fantasy of mine for a while now to find a nice little parcel of land on a river or with a pond in upstate New York to build a modern cabin. I’ve just come across these lovely pre-fabs from Form & Forest. I might just have to do a price check.
This is what happens when a well known brand borrows the logo design of a similar brand.
These one of a kind, handmade, decoupaged vintage globes by Wendy Gold are just so darn lovely.
What sandwich type are you hungry for?
Zoran Lucic designed this retro-vintage style poster series honoring soccers greatest players to step on the pitch. If he put these on t-shirts, I’d buy all of them.
Perhaps you’ve worked with an excessively frustrating client. Why not invoice them for your suffering? Designer Jessica Hische has designed some helpful forms. All you have to do is fill them out.

If you are in creative services and work with clients independently or run your own company, here is the best advice you’ll ever get on how to protect yourself. Fuck you. Pay me. This Creative Mornings talk by the wonderfully talented and amusing Mike Monteiro of Mule Design will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will make you want to buddy up with a lawyer but most of all, it will inspire you to make good business choices.
Its quite disheartening to see the state of these 75 abandoned theaters across the US. They stand as reminders to the rise of corporate America and the decline of great towns and cities. Its striking to see how an eye for detail and design was once an important part of our cultural landscape, and not just for the grand theaters but the local small ones too. On a positive note, #49 in Brooklyn is in the process of being renovated.
Stumptown Coffee Roasters of Portland, Oregon made their presence felt in NYC a few years back. They now have a cafe in Manhattan and another in the industrial neighborhood of Red Hook in Brooklyn. They’ve just released a bottled cold brew beverage with packaging designed by Jesse Whipple Vickery. I just hope it tastes as good as the bottle looks.
