Vintage Goodness

Here’s an awesome collection of vintage bottlecaps on Flickr. For such small objects—that many would consider insignificant—most of them are pretty sophisticated in terms of design. Check out the full collection here.

CreativeTechs

If you’re a Mac user and you haven’t yet heard of CreativeTechs, you should check out their site immediately. The tagline says it all really: “left brain support for right brain professionals”. In person CreativeTechs provide Mac tech support for…

New York Magazine

When I receive my copy of New York Magazine every week, there is always some aspect of the design I really like (online as well—love this logo). The look of the magazine is really tight, and I love that they…

Alice Chocolate

I love all things Alice and Wonderland (especially this 80’s TV version, which I know some people find pretty creepy.) So I immediately fell for this chocolate packaging when I saw it awhile ago. And I was psyched to come…

Bonjour Mon Coussin

Really fun pillow designs from Bonjour Mon Coussin, out of—where else—France. 1. Windy, 2. Papier, 3. Macarons, 4. Plan, 5. Numero, 6. Alphakids, 7. Teatime, 8. Pliages, 9. Vroum. Or shop the full catalog here. I also really like their…

Paula Scher and the Public Theater

It’s no surprise that I’m a huge fan of Paula Scher. She is a legend in the design industry who has had an extremely successful career. Her work for Pentagram, as well as her personal painting, is consistently inspiring. And…

Speaking of CSA…

Awhile ago I promised I’d show you some of the paper promotions I received at the HOW Conference, and of course I just finally got around to organizing them. One in particular that I love is this one designed by…

Naked & Angry

I know most people have heard of Threadless, but Naked & Angry, another skinnyCorp company, is lesser known. Here instead of t-shirts, you submit patterns for judging and scoring by users of the site. Then if ranked high enough, they…

Evgeny Parfenov Illustration

I really love the style of this work. A Moscow-based illustrator, Parfenov uses a highly stylized technique that still lends itself to pretty realistic portraits. Had to throw John Locke in there since I’m a huge LOST fan Parfenov also…

Renegade Update

So unfortunately I don’t really have any pictures from Renegade on Sunday. The weather was not so great—glad I remembered an umbrella—but there was some great stuff to be seen. I didn’t buy very much but I did make note…

Animal Print Madness

Fun, whimsical animal prints from photographer, Catherine Ledner. Of course, I especially love them because of the vibrant wallpaper backdrops. There are tons to choose from, from alligator to zebra. Too bad they’re still a little bit out of my…

An Amazing Resource

I’m so excited about this. Smashing Magazine recently put together a gigantic, reader-created gallery of background textures. Photos include wood, bark, fabric, sand and tons more. Best of all, they’re completely free to use for personal AND commercial use. Definitely…

Sete Dias

There isn’t really any background information on this visual blog so I’m not entirely sure about the thought behind it; but the work is really beautiful to look at. Love the color and typography.
