Format just launched a beautiful new film series called InFrame in collaboration with crazy talented Bas Berkhout. The first film of the series (above) offers a beautiful glimpse into the life of Brooklyn based photographer Jessica Lehrman.
Makes me so happy when good people collaborate. Check out InFrame.
Every now and then I stumble upon an absolute gem on the internet. This Instagram account with the username ChiliPhilly is one of them. It put the biggest smile on my face. I love the internet so much!
Simple Machines is the latest app by Brooklyn based Tinybop. The app allows you to explore the playful side of physics. Just like all their earlier apps, Simple Machines is *beautifully* illustrated and thoughtfully executed. Team Tinybop continues to create apps that I *want* my kids to play with; Educational, fun, and well-designed. Two swissmiss thumbs up!
Summer in Switzerland means people jumping into rivers, in the middle of major cities (!), their clothes tucked away in waterproof bags, and then peacefully drifting for long distances. Eventually they hop out and get their dry clothes out of their bags. These design-y waterproof seabags from Büro Destruct & Kitchener are perfect for this. Also, wish our NYC water was as clean as the rivers and lakes in Switzerland. (le sigh)

Exactly 10 years ago today, I started this blog with the above quote. Little did I know, that it would redefine my career and life. Happy my 10 year blog-iversary to you. Thank you for reading. Please consider yourself hugged.
I just opened my Sugru community newsletter and learned that I can now buy shares in the company I love so much.
There’s no other company that makes my heart go pitter patter the way Sugru does. (You can watch their story here.)
I am so totally investing a teeny tiny bit of money. (It starts as low as £10) How can I not? I am such a fan and respect Jane and her team so much! What a smart move!
UPDATE: So, if you live in the US, Canada and Japan, you’re unfortunately out of luck. Crowdfunding is apparently not regulated yet in these countries, so, we’re not allowed to participate. Major womp womp moment here!
Netherland based Frontstand was introduced just a few days ago at TYPO Berlin and aims to be the iTunes of Fonts. Fontstand has created a Mac OS X app that allows users to test drive fonts from 20 international type foundries and independent designers for an hour at no charge. Fonts can then be rented for 30-day periods at 10 percent of the purchase price, with no location-based restrictions. This is fantastic!
