I watched my coworker Emerline use Flowstate and it blew my mind. It is a writing tool designed to snowball a person’s primal focus into a serene state of creative flow. No overthinking what you wrote. No instant deleting, going back and editing. Just writing! How? You set a focus time, you start writing and when you pause, the app blurs out and makes everything you wrote disappear. The document only gets saved if you complete your timed-writing exercise. Terrifying and brilliant all at once. Try it: Flowstate.
These soft, layered photographs made me look. They are by Iranian born, NYC based photographer Nima Chaichi. What an eye!
Stumbled upon these lovely creator profiles over at This Is Ground. The animated portraits are the best.
Have you ever wondered what the tree population and density of the United States looks like? This amazing map shows just that.
Half Half Travel is a beautifully creative project by a long-distance photographer couple. Their photos meet in the middle when they can’t.
This takes eating lunch at your desk to a whole new level. Watching her cook her lunch at her desk, all I could think of is “come on, protect the desk surface”. My mom sure got that pounded into me…
When Croatian artists Olinka Vistina and Drazen Grubisic separated, their reluctance to part with the sentimental reminders of their fizzled love inspired them to open the Museum of Broken Relationships, so that the items could remain together.
“O.K., so it’s taken me two weeks to get back to you, and I have no excuse beyond the fact that I just didn’t care about your thing. I still don’t care, but I’m trying to foster a false sense of productivity by cleaning out my inbox. Please don’t respond to this response and undo my hard work! Looping in Laura, in case you feel that you have to write to someone.”
Sorry For The Delayed Response, by Susanna Wolff
For the first time ever I might consider owning a TV: The Frame is the first TV that doesn’t turn off; instead of going to black, The Frame displays a stunning piece of art, turning your wall into a museum-worthy art gallery.
Tattly partnered with Vogue Magazine. I keep giggling every time I mention those two brands together. It’s making my heart explode a little bit. It doesn’t escape me that it is an absolute privilege for a young company like Tattly to collaborate with an esteemed and trusted brand like Vogue! I remember sitting in their conference room, a few months back, overlooking lower Manhattan and thinking “is this really happening?”
And now it’s here, we launched the Vintage Vogue Collection. My team and I spent days going through their 125 year magazine archive and picked some of our favorite illustrations from the 20s, 30s and 40s.
This is a limited edition collection, so get it while you can.

Art Bag chug my eye. It can be used as a portfolio, a perfect way to show off mood boards with hidden magnetic layers or you can use it as a safe place to keep your kids’ masterpieces. I like it.
