“Sell your expertise and you have a limited repertoire. Sell your ignorance and you have an unlimited repertoire. He was selling his ignorance and his desire to learn about a subject. The journey of not knowing to knowing was his work.”
— Richard Saul Wurman on Charles Eames
“Leadership is a two-way street, loyalty up and loyalty down. Respect for one’s superiors; care for one’s crew.”

I am a huge fan of soft boiled eggs on Sunday mornings. This is the most stylish egg holder I have come across so far: Eierbecher Set Eiche. #wishlisted
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.
FiLIP is a locator and wrist watch for kids. Using the FiLIP app, you pre-program 5 phone numbers that your child can call. Your child can scroll through the 5 numbers and call the one they want with the touch of a button. Smart.
(Also, notice, you can now embedd Instagram photos and videos!)
My friend Cameron Moll did it again. He designed yet another historic architectural structure entirely out of type, this time, the Brooklyn Bridge. He is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help pay for the letterpress printing cost. I am happy to see that he has already reached his goal, but there are still lots of fantastic rewards to be had. Go get yours!
Skootcase is every airport traveling kid’s dream come true. (It’s a suitcase and a scooter!)
Not sure what made me think of Alf just now, but man, I just had some serious childhood Flashbacks. Is anyone with me on this one?

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!
Five years ago, while visiting from Paris, he fell in love with the run-down building, convinced the owner to let him restore it into its original beauty. Lucien saw the potential and single handedly scraped off layers of paint, emptied out 5 floors filled with industrial components and a basement filled with junk. And by doing so he has turned what used to be a sleepy Cobble Hill street into a happening, cultural highlight in Brooklyn.
The value he is providing by running The Invisible Dog is tremendous. It’s a no-brainer for me, to back his Kickstarter and help fund The Invisible Dog’s fifth season. Can’t wait what they’ll come up with this year. Lucien, you ARE the king of Bergen street!
Join me and back Lucien’s Kickstarter!
Love one of his Kickstarter rewards giving you naming rights to his epic elevator. Trust me, that elevator is something special.
