I thought about next year, but couldn’t get past the summer, by Joy Drury Cox

Objectified, is Gary Hustwit’s forthcoming documentary feature about industrial design. It’s about the manufactured objects we surround ourselves with, and the people who make them. It’s about the world of creativity behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets, featuring some of the world’s most influential industrial designers. It’s also about consumerism, sustainability, and identity.
The film will premiere in early 2009; in the meantime on the blog Gary will be discussing the issues covered in the film, posting still photos from the shoots, and video excerpts as we finish the movie.
I can’t wait to see this!

My wonderfully creative friend Christine and her kids made their very own ice cream parlor with salt dough and then painted them with acrylic paint. (oh, the memories) The sign is my favorite. Go Emma!

Weirdos in the Woods, by Neil Doshi. Made me smile.
Table of contents is often considered to be one of the most unspectacular design elements ever invented. Because of its simple, usual form, table of contents is often not given the attention it may deserve — after all, it is just a list of the parts of a book or document organized in the order in which the parts appear. But why not use exactly that and surprise the reader of a booklet, brochure, annual report or a book with some beautiful and original table of contents? In fact, many creative approaches are possible. Table of Contents: Creative Examples

“The thing that worries me most at the moment about the condition of journalism is, frankly, who’s going to pay for the journalists and the journalism in 10 years’ time? Teenagers, people in their twenties, even in their late twenties, have now got to the position where they wouldn’t pay for news. They expect their news to be free, they expect it to be in a free newspaper on the underground or at the bus station or, more often, they expect it to be a free good on their laptops. My kids wouldn’t dream of buying a newspaper — and we are a newspaper household.” — Andrew Marr, 48, BBC journalist, quoted in The Independent
