The unknown is an abstraction; the known, a desert; but what is half-known, half-seen, is the perfect breeding ground for desire and hallucination

Business Cards Design Inspiration

It’s time to check out the newest business cards design. I must say, each day I’m amazed by the imagination and creativity of some designers. In this article you can see 20+ examples of business cards of various shapes, textures and colors.

I think I’m starting to like the letterpress method because of it’s simplicity. For those who don’t know, letterpress printing is relief printing of text and image using a press with a “type-high bed” printing press and movable type, in which a reversed, raised surface is inked and then pressed into a sheet of paper to obtain a positive right-reading image.

Sneak Peek: Melanie, Ryan & Beck Blodgett


Melanie Blodgett, her husband, Ryan, and son, Beck, purchased their first home in Denver, Colorado, 11 months ago (a big step up from their old, dark and cramped apartment with popcorn ceiling). Melanie has about five different jobs related to blogging and social media but can frequently be found at You Are My Fave. She’s also fortunate to have a job where she can work from home, spend time with her son and take advantage of the great natural light in their place for shooting tutorials for her blog. (Did you know that Denver boasts 300 days of sun a year?) When it came to decorating, Melanie started with pieces she loved — namely the couch — and mixed and matched from there, using furniture to add color rather than putting it on the walls. Many thanks to Melanie and Jennifer Little of Sugar Photography for the photos! — Anne

Image above: I wanted to go with a neutral, calming palette for the bedroom, so I stuck with Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray on the walls and white linen bedding from Restoration Hardware. I added a bit of color with the painting from Michelle Armas and the green chair-turned-nightstand from Crate and Barrel. The platform bed is CB2.


Image above: I originally wanted to go with gray for the living/dining/kitchen space but was afraid it would be too monotone with the counters and metal table. So I went with Sherwin Williams Blue Horizon, which, it turns out, matches everything. The couch is the popular Petrie sofa from Crate and Barrel, the coffee table is from CB2 and the side chairs, mirror and rug are from West Elm. I went to West Elm so often that all the workers still recognize me.

Reclaim NYC Charity Exhibit and Auction for Sandy Relief

A NJ native who spent summers at “the Jersey Shore,” Superstorm Sandy hit close to home, literally. During the storm, I was receiving frantic calls from my mom about how she’s worried about our family’s shore house and her neighbors’ homes, and keeping an intent eye on Twitter to see if all my friends were OK. We all felt like we were sitting there together, watching the water levels rise up around Jane’s Carousel. Then, after the storm, seeing the haunting and horrifying photos of the shore, parts of NYC, and other states, too. Saddened to hear that friends had to live like nomads for weeks due to no power and no water, other friends to say they’re helping their elderly grandparents clean up their devastated house… and people are still suffering.

So many of our fellow designers in the NYC design community were affected by the storm in some way, and I am so proud that friends have come together to support this cause. Editor in Chief of the Designer Pages 3rings and Otto blogs Jean Lin, design/architecture writer Jennifer Krichels Gorsche, and designer Brad Ascalon have teamed up to help raise money for those affected by the storm through an exhibition and auction of furnishings created from materials reclaimed or salvaged after the storm and of pieces inspired by the flooding. The proceeds of the silent auction will go to the American Red Cross in Greater New York. On Wednesday night, you can see these pieces in person at Ligne Roset in Soho from 7-9 PM. I suggest you stop in and support this important cause. Here’s a preview of some auction highlights:

starlight – burning man installation


‘starlight’ – burning man lighting installation by erich remash, jeremy berglund, don peterson + chad ingle
dust vs. stars 
image © gleb tarro 

 

 

starlight’ by erich remash, jeremy berglund, don peterson and chad ingle is a modest sculptural installation that was presented
at burning man 2012 and four other festivals. seven twelve-foot diameter plywood stars were placed in the black rock desert
mapping out the constellation orion, creating a sense of place and a ‘heaven on earth’ effect. the stars are designed to appear
aesthetically pleasing during day and night, appealing from great distances in order to draw in curiousity. constructed of
CNC milled plywood and fir blocking patterns, repetition, scale and tension are used to combat the overwhelming scale of the
black rock desert. as a result, each star is given its own unique lighting pattern.
