♥ / Nuno

Big thanks to Nuno for sponsoring my blog and RSS feed this week.

Nuno makes reusable fabric gift wraps that are so special they might just outshine the gift inside. They’re stylish and super easy to use—and because they’re reusable, that means less paper waste and more gifting joy. (Psst, you can also wear them!)

Guess what, they’re made of 100% recycled plastic bottles. Now, that’s a high-five to Mother Earth.

If you’re ready to upgrade your gift-wrapping game, give Nuno a try. And just for Swissmiss friends, get 15% off your order with code SWISSMISS15. SHOP NOW!

Oliver Jeffers

My friend Bas did it again. His personal mini documentaries called Like Knows Like is how we meet in the first place and made me fall in love with his craft. Today he launched his latest masterpiece, with fellow studiomate and friend Oliver Jeffers as the subject. 15 mins well spent.

My Adobe MAX Talk

What an honor to have been invited to speak at Adobe MAX last week! And how delightful to find the talk already available online! In this talk I cover some of the values I base my companies on, my approach to being a leader of multiple companies and 9 of my favorite interview questions. This is by far the longest, most honest and personal talk I have ever given. I hope you enjoy!
