MONOCLE SHOP

STORES I just spent a weekend in L.A. and was eager to check out the newly opened Monocle store. I was a little disappointed when I got there…maybe because I had such high expectations. There wasn’t much of a store experience. However, I did see Gwyneth Paltrow and her family!

DESIGN NEWS Congratulations to Debbie Millman, the new president of AIGA. I’ve always admired how she’s so knowledgeable, composed, and well spoken. The acceptance speech she made at the 2009 AIGA Leadership Retreat is pretty inspirational.

ARCHER

TYPOGRAPHY Is it just me or is Archer the new black? I’m seeing this typeface all over the place…from Martha Stewart to Wells Fargo. However, I’m kind of disappointed with the new Newsweek redesign and their use of Archer for their spotlight section. It’s such a charming little typeface but when used for the wrong brand, it can look really off.

PARTLY CLOUDY

FILMS Partly Cloudy is Pixar’s new short film and I think it might just be my favorite Pixar short…it’s a tie between this and Geri’s Game.
