RANDOM THOUGHTS I’ve looked at hundreds of portfolio websites and I’ve come across the word “stationery” misspelled many times (most spell it stationary). I notice this only because I spelled it wrong once and the design director at school pointed it out to me. *embarrassing* Just remember it’s E for envelope.
RANDOM THOUGHTS I think the new Nissan Cube is a little too cute for my taste. My brother mentioned that it kind of looks like a Raving Rabbid. I totally agree.
RANDOM THOUGHTS Philippe Starck is the lucky owner of this awesome vintage Shelette. The wicker seats are dope.
RANDOM THOUGHTS I had lunch the other day and came across this Vietnamese restaurant, iPho. Thought it was kinda funny. Who would of known you could develop a brand around technology and Pho.
RANDOM THOUGHTS I was pretty surprised to find out that Karim Rashid isn’t just an awesome industrial designer but also a DJ! I’ve been trying to hunt down audio samples of his work but haven’t been successful.
RANDOM THOUGHTS Waitrose is one sexy grocery store. Unfortunately, they’re located in Europe. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that one day they’ll venture out to the U.S.
RANDOM THOUGHTS How cute are these calligraphic squirrels drawn by typographer, Roger Excoffon, designer of the typeface Mistral.
RANDOM THOUGHTS Apparently, Krya Sedgwick is Trop50’s new spokesperson. Interesting. I can’t recall the last time an actress or actor was a spokesperson for juice.
PRINT & PROSPER
RANDOM THOUGHTS I go through cartridges like no other and I think it’s absolutely absurd how much they cost. I was watching tv today and saw a commercial for Kodak. Apparently, they just released a new campaign introducing their fairly priced inks. You can figure out how much you overpay on ink at their website. Now I’m curious about the quality of the ink.
RANDOM THOUGHTS The campaign that Shepard Fairey has done for Saks Fifth Avenue is live. Check it out. The campaign and their brand feels like two completely different entities. I don’t think Saks is Avant Garde enough to rock this campaign.
