November 22nd, 2010 · Comments Off

This is a wonderful new children’s book by Lane Smith (but really, it seems like it’s directed more at parents). We picked up a copy over the weekend. From a design point of view, I think the above video – while a great tool for helping get the word out -  impacts the first impression […]

Blur

April 15th, 2010 · Comments Off

How did I miss this? The last show I saw before moving back to Winnipeg from Vancouver in 2003 was Blur, and it was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to: a mature band, at the tail end of their run, in perfect form, running through an extra-long set of their best, in […]

Sakura

March 30th, 2010 · Comments Off

For centuries, the blooming of cherry blossoms (sakura) in Japan has held a near-magical significance, inspiring poetry, art, music, and kimono designs, while also symbolizing new beginnings. After the heavy grayness of a long winter, there is something about spring that warms the shoulders, lightens the step, brings a smile to the face, and makes […]

IdN 15th Anniversary Book

March 16th, 2010 · Comments Off

I’ve always loved IdN. Beautifully-produced, eclectic subject matter and paired with a DVD of moving goodies, I treat myself to one or two issues per year. Turns out they have recently published a book commemorating 15 years of publishing. Lots to see here. Click on “View Fullscreen” in the area above to see all the […]

Leslie & The Badgers

March 11th, 2010 · Comments Off

My co-worker Kevin (@kevinguenther) introduced me to the Black Harbor this morning, a “collective exploration of Art & Design”, where he discovered the oh-so-lovely Leslie & The Badgers, as showcased above.  A nice way to start the day! Leslie reminds me a little of another of my female singer-songwriter heart throbs, Jenny Lewis, seen here […]
