My first rambling! So excited!
Spring is finally arriving here in Ann Arbor! I can’t wait until the grass starts turning green and gets cut. Fresh cut grass = one of my favorite smells.
Though it poured cats and dogs today, I’ve missed the rain and it smells like Spring. I won’t miss that snow though. While Ann Arbor’s a wonderful city, it’s not so wonderful when there’s a foot of snow on the ground and you need to get to class, which you’re running late for because the snow’s slowing you down. Oh Spring, I’ve missed you so.
Enough talk about the weather, here’s my list of the moment!
1) I want this bag from Goorin. It’s so much fun! It is a little small [H: 10" X W: 16" X D: 4"], but the color makes me smile–it’s like toting around a little slice of sunshine. And it’d be perfect for the Spring weather that’s arriving (couldn’t help myself, I’m just so excited for this weather)!
2) And I also want a Helvetica Moleskine. I watched Gary Hustwit’s documentary Helvetica last month and found it to be quite entertaining and educational (who knew that it was possible for a documentary to be both?!). I already have a ton of notebooks that I carry around and doodle in, but none are as cool as this. A number of designers have been talking about this Moleskine.
3) Also, I stumbled upon Chris Piascik’s amazing flickr account on twitter a few days ago, and fell in love with his Typography album. Designers, if you’ve run into a block, this is a great place to turn to for some inspiration. Enjoy one of Mr. Piascik’s works below.
