Redesigned book covers

Vintage books unveiled 18 redeisgn book covers of Vladimir Nabokov’s work. Each of the covers were made with butterfly boxes, pins and paper – due to Nabokov’s love of butterflies.

Japan Brand: The Wish List

The studio I work at is finishing up a pop-up shop at the Felissimo Design House called JAPAN BRAND: The Wish List. From the website:

“The Wish List is a special collection of products that merge time-honored craftsmanship and fresh expression from 27 regions of Japan. Available for one month only at the JAPAN BRAND holiday shop.”

I’m excited to see it all put together. It opens November 23rd and will be there until December 24th.

Fads are bad (don’t try to design in a style or incorporate it if it does not feel right), 5. Let a thing be what it is (don’t be like Prince and his symbol) and 6. A little bit of self-delusion goes a long way (look at Right Said Fred’s “I’m too sexy”).

Crayons for the web

ColorSchemer.com created a list of all 120 Crayola Crayon Colors with their hex codes and RGB values. I am going to use Razzmatazz (my favorite crayon name) in a design as soon as I can.
