My studiomate Mans just launched the OTO Taco Truck. (You might have seen the Icecream truck from last year) I don’t know about you, but my son’s head will explode when he gets this for the holidays. Goes perfectly with his favorite book Dragons Love Tacos.

31011_1Observation Notebook

This is the most charming notebook I have ever seen. It’s based based on the one Jason Polan uses while moving around and sketching the world. He holds his notebook close to his face when he draws, so he thought it would be appropriate to put eyes on the notebook’s back side. LOVE!

Ostrich Pillow Light

I just had the pleasure to meet one of the co-founders of Switzerland based Studio Banana. Key Portilla-Kawamura is one of the forces behind the wonderful Ostrich Pillow and now it’s smaller brother the Ostrich Pillow Light, pictured above. These pillows are made in a small town in Spain and revived a dying factory. What is not to love?

Key also gave a CreativeMornings talk in Geneva a year ago. Yay for smart creative people making cool stuff. And yay for the internet connecting us all.
