Lots ‘n lots of tasty links! Love you, notcot.

Studio MPLS

Anyone who incorporates antlers into their client branding, rocks the design world.

Gesa Hansen makes uniquely handcrafted wooden furniture. She also has a pretty rad blog of all things designy.

Carl Kleiner for IKEA

Already a fan of photographer Carl Kleiner, I loved finding these images of beautifully styled ingredients for the new IKEA cookbook, “Hembakat är Bäst” (Homemade is Best). More here and here.

Heroes and Villains

A new toy series by Yum Yum. This vilain is priceless.

Kid’s Wear Magazine

Photographer Achim Lippoth, shot these likenesses for Kid’s Wear magazine. I can’t decide if they are endearing or creepy.

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.
