Smith & Diction’s Pitch Deck
All wrapped up nicely in a Figma presentation with tangent links to moodboards and samples.
Wesley Verhoeve – How I Started My Career as a Professional Photographer
Speaking the Eames Institute, they have a (virtual) magazine to share stories about people, projects, and ideas that are shaping a better tomorrow. I kinda wish it was a real magazine, had an RSS feed or both!
Nothing great is made alone
Wonderful work from Collins sharing the Figma story. Bonus? Reading the "+ Project Information" backstory to get a sense of the journey.
Paul Rand’s Logo Presentation Books
A trove of logo concept books from Rand. Many of these identity studies weren't approved. Still great to peruse.
Visions Not Previously Seen
Barbara “Bobbie” Stauffacher Solomon mixed Swiss graphic design principles with West Coast Pop art stylings, essentially creating supergraphics, and in doing so shaped the history of design. / Revisiting this link for inspiration
Right On! A Documentary on Student Protest
AIGA has a solid deep dive (and video thumbing through pages) of this distilling reports of campus protests. David L. Burke's design keeps the vibe of a zine in a paperback format. It's gorgeous.
Dave Rupert’s bookshelf
Tucking this sortable page of books read (or listened to) in my virtual folder of personal website inspiration. / via a secret RSS post in a roundabout way
New type design practice and foundry from Erik Marinovich. Just cruise around the specimens pages to get a solid dose of vibrant type goodness.
How Brian Lovin’s site works
Whoa. This is densely awesome. A personal website that operates somewhat like an OS. Thoroughly engaging and inspiring.
Be My Eyes
This is awesome. An app that instantly connects a blind person with a sighted volunteer who can tell them what’s in front of them via screen sharing.
Merlin’s GitHub of wisdom
Whenever you meet someone new, ask them what they're most excited about right now. Everyone interesting is excited about something right now, and they'd probably love to tell you about it. (And many more!)
Print and design studio run by husband and wife team Sebastian and Lyndsey Burke. They do everything from prints to books/zines. Filing away for later!
Everything around you
Apple tips their hat to Steve Jobs 10 years after his passing. A moving short video.
An interview with Frank Oz
There's some heaviness in this conversation with puppeteer and director Frank Oz, but I wish it was three times longer. And Stepford Wives wasn't that bad of a movie.
The Gap by Ira Glass
I've heard this audio a handful of times and seen it visualized perhaps more than once. But it never fails to remind me of the work. / via @misterbisson
Group X branding
An anonymous group of artists and curators making things happen in Philly. Now with a fine identity to mask their identity. Always solid seeing what Smith & Diction make. / via Under Consideration
Gergely Gizella’s personal website
Is unlike any I have experienced. / via Belong.io
My friend is a wizard
I can't wait til Erik gets his second vaccine and the fluorescent ombre beard he has dreamed about for years. But for now? I'm excited right alongside.
Yamato Groups identity refresh
The presentation of this update is as lovely as every element combined. / via UnderConsideration
A quarterly zine in which Rob Weychert explores algorithmic art with a focus on combinatorics.
A thread about how videogames can change a life
Sometimes Twitter showing what your friends liked is a very good thing. Also? Firewatch is a great experience!

Original Pattern Brewing Company
Esquire magazine, September and October/November 2020
Nashville Design Week 2020
This event has passed, but I stumbled upon the site and fell in love with their take on gradients (and lovely type to boot). Who says you can't make Squarespace look neat!
World Chess – Official FIDE Gaming Platform
Chris Davies’ Middle Eastern Kitchen brand work
1972 U.S. election, CBS News
Found via UnderConsideration, but these Vietnamese, Filipino and Thai spice starters look awesome. A bit pricey, but SUPER pretty.
