The latest project of The Letterproeftuin is a mobile printing installation for small posters and books. Would love to have one of these setups in Studiomates.
Now here’s a useful online resource: Fotor allows you to easily edit your photos online; ranging from basic cropping to HDR (High Dynamic Range) processing. Impressive!
Everyone’s giving out candy on Halloween, be the cool kid in town by handing out the adorable Boo Crew. (Technically it is a candy, but just in form of a temporary tattoo!)
Imagine you text your friend and a few minutes later you get a response, via text, but a handwritten response. Yup, that’s the incredibly poetic project called Modern Day Snail Mail by Cristina Vanko.
New York City Ballet filmed NEW BEGINNINGS at sunrise on the 57th floor of 4WTC in lower Manhattan. This stunning short film captures an extraordinary and moving performance of Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain. It is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a tribute to the future of the city that New York City Ballet calls home.
Make sure to watch in full screen mode!

My friend Arianna Orland teamed up with the folks over a MOO and created these stunning Moo Luxe Cards. The Luxe Project is a brand new initiative that teams talented creatives with Luxe by MOO. Their designs will be showcased for a month, and 100% of net proceeds will go to the designer’s charity of choice.
I have MOO Luxe business cards both for CreativeMornings and Tattly. Couldn’t be happier. I heart MOO.

Woah! Designers & Books has a new look! If you’re into books on design, this site is for you. The Designer & Books team believes that books are an important source of inspiration for creativity, innovation, and invention. And for people that share this love for books, they publish lists of books that esteemed members of the international design community identify as important, meaningful. Pages full of lists with formative—books that have shaped their values, their worldview, and their ideas about design.
From Vitruvius to William Morris to Frank Lloyd Wright to Edith Wharton to Le Corbusier to Paul Rand—there has always been a particularly special and robust relationship between designers and books: reading them, writing them, designing them, collecting them, learning from them, and being inspired by them. Designers & Books celebrates that relationship.
Check out the growing roster of designers that share the books that influenced them the most. Ever wondered what books Michael Bierut, Paula Scher or John Maeda would recommend? Or what the Notable design books of 2013 are? Ever wondered what books feature a designer as the main character? Or what the recently published books in graphic design are? Designers & Books answers all of that.
