this week in inspiration: 5.12.08 to 5.16.08



10. Placement of self, a series from Davin Youngs. If I didn't know better, I'd call him vain, but vanity sure makes for a fantastic project.
9. A modern day 'Everything I Know I Learned in Kindergarten.' Only with pictures. And way cooler.
8. Only one more issue of North Drive Press left to wish for. Sad, but what a bittersweet ending it will be.
7. The Thing: Revolutionizing the subscriptions industry--- one package at a time.
6. You know I love a good street installation. I'm thinking Plant Yourself is right up my alley.
5. The most fascinating family portrait ever.
4. Carbonrally. It's like The Amazing Race, only better. And for a good cause. And without backpacks.
3. Style with a purpose. Instant love.
2. Cause we are living in a virtual world, and I am a virtual girl. Thanks, Wallpaper!
1. Another brilliant podcast from Ms. Paola Antonelli. Thanks, Karline and Mette!

If im in the situation of the owner of this blog. I dont know how to post this kind of topic. he has a nice idea.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
