My life in weeks poster is a powerful visual reminder how short life is. Each box corresponds to one week in an average 88-year lifespan, and every filled-in box is one that you have already lived.
This series of six posters was designed by Massimo Vignelli, Beatriz Cifuentes and Yoshiki Waterhouse in 2013. Each is a tight crop of the New York City Subway Diagram at matching scale. Lovely!

It’s almost March, I know, but this hyper minimal calendar is too pretty not to share. GAH!
NOT THE MOON is a pancake, digitized as a high-res, film quality scan, its texture applied to a true-to-scale sphere representation and virtually photographed with a 600 mm telescopic lens using minimal shutter and small aperture. Post-production (brightness & contrast, positive/negative) has intentionally been kept to an absolute minimum. Each variant is available as a limited edition of 100 silkscreen prints, signed, numbered and coded in reference to how minor planets are formally designated: e.g. 129 PNCK, while “1” indicates the variant/edition and “29” describes the amount of pancakes it took for that perfect one to make it all the way through and into the final edition.
Made me smile.
(I asked the internet which small shops/makers I should support. This was one of the suggestions.)
I love the idea of a Noticing Wall – a zero-pressure space for parents and kids to write notes to each other, ask questions, jot down fun things you learned, and make plans. I’ll definitely give this a try!
