Thank you, Steve.

1955 – 2011

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Stanford Commencement Address, 2005

Spine Out

Yummy book cover design blog.

Instagram books

You can now turn your Instagram album into the book, via Blurb. Such a good idea.

The.Hand.Written.Letter.Project

I’m fascinated with what people’s handwriting looks like, so this project is extra-neat.

O-Check

Can never have enough notebooks. One of each, please.

Young, Russian, and Rich

Hardback Book Lamp

Brilliant.

Robert Bourdeau

The Station Point is the latest book of one of my favourite photographers, Robert Bourdeau. Wonderful book and package design by The Office of Gilbert Li.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
