Dudes. This stop-motion video is awesome. Watch for the joke on kerning at the ending. Brilliant. Source.
Went to the Walker today (one of my favorite museums) and there was an exhibition of Eero Saarinen’s work. I didn’t know he designed office complexes, airports, and auditoriums, on top of the amazing furniture he’s well-known for. The were some fantastic pieces to see, for sure, especially the vintage advertisements & print collateral from the era. Too bad they don’t allow photography in the Museum, so I had to scout for these images.
Annnnd, that’s it then. I have officially made it. 30 straight days of posts for Nablopomo. Phewwww!
The local Chicago Christmas shopping scene just got an innovative twist with the launch of Columbia College’s all handmade student produced boutique of treasurely finds. So far no online shopping to be had (though their site is worth clicking through for the pretty pictures) so I may just have to trek down to the south loop for a look-see. Via Apartment Therapy.
