+ Check out my friend Meghan McEwen on Design Milk! So stinking cute. Meghan’s quite the accomplished writer and has put together a great list of things to do in Detroit. While you’re at it, check out her interior design/travel blog, Design Tripper, which I helped design & develop too. (Hi Meghan!)
+ This, folks, is the entire contents of my office (minus my vintage mint-green file cabinet which isn’t pictured). I’ve undertaken a massive file/purge of all my office and this is what remains. These boxes house my office supplies, collage materials, oil & watercolor paints, and 4 years worth of relevant receipts, bills and tax documents. For the first time ever I feel organized. MAJOR WIN.
92 page commemorative book on Frere-Jones’ work from 1986–2006. Design by Abi Huynh, with Laure Afchain, Marta Bernstein, Charles Mazé and Sueh Li Tan. Set in Gotham Condensed & Poytner Oldstyle text…I just love it when designers credit their typefaces in the colophon!
+ After this morning’s presentation (so fun!) at the U of I, I’ve got that brain-mush thing that happens when you’re talking, learning, engaging and generally getting to do awesome stuff. I’m sneaking in laptop time with some hot tea to recoup my oozing thoughts before round two (a panel discussion, Zen and the Art of Freelancing) kicks off in three hours. Champaign’s really rolled out the red carpet for us, it’s both thrilling and humbling. Thank you students, faculty, new friends, old friends.
+ Downloaded Instagram, a new free iPhone app that Bobby suggested. It’s giving my old standby ShakeItPhoto a serious run for its ¢99. I’m enjoying Instagram’s sharing options too, which are responsible for breathing new life into my dusty, neglected flickr stream.
+ I think this Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower recipe from Serious Eats gives cauliflower a whole new feel; it’s a far more interesting use for hot sauce than chicken wings. I’d even kick it up a notch and throw in more greens, making it more of a hearty salad.
