“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
— Robert Heinlein
Watch Ferrari’s F1 pit crew do a pit stop in a bit over two seconds. Crazy impressive.
Wish I would have gotten my hands on this Baby Bottle Holder when my little ones were tiny! Smart!
This limited edition Cosmic Tote made me look. Love to discover more and more products made in the USA! YAY!

I think we could all use some Sunlight Pills just about now. Which ones would you like? Bahamas, Seychelles or BoraBora?
(Waving to you Australia! Enjoy that summer!)
I love it when people question and re-invent something that is seemingly not broken, i.e. the mechanics of a door. Congrats Austria based Klemens Torggler for this stunning door concept.
Dropmark is one of the few services I use daily and that I could not do without. So, I figured I’d share again. It’s a super simple cloud-based collaboration tool. Do you ever do research and save a bunch of links or images? Dropmark helps you with that! You can easily organize what you found and invite colleagues to view and collaborate privately, or share your content with the world. I use Dropmark in my search for new Tattly artists, research toys for my kids, bookmark recipes, to save my favorite YouTube videos and to share design mock-ups.
What do you use Dropmark for?
I need to hang this print by Andrew Neyer above my computer so I remember to drink water throughout the day. Oh, healthy habits…

“The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.”

I remember what a hassle and expense it was to get business cards printed when I got my first design job in 1999. How the world has changed! MOO has completely redefined the landscape of business cards and notecards for that matter. They have made rich looking, full-color printed business cards affordable and accessible for anyone. I get so many compliments when I hand out my CreativeMornings card (see above). I love my cards so much, that we teamed up with MOO to send all of them a set of CreativeMornings Luxe Business Cards. Needless to say, the surprise was a success.
But my love for MOO goes beyond just the beauty and affordability of their cards. It’s the level of detail they put into everything they do. If you have ever received a MOO package you know what I am talking about. From the YAY sticker on the outside to the beautiful (!) business card box they come in. MOO cares. They care about good design. They care about delighting the customer. Consider me a fan.
I happend to stumble upon Adam Frank’s Lucid Mirror at NYNOW and it took my breath away. It’s a stunning décor mirror that places luminous 3D sunrays illuminating clouds behind the plane of the reflective surface. Viewers can ‘touch’ the illusion with their reflected image.
The above image doesn’t do it justice. It’s magical. Believe me.
