I fell off the grid for the last couple of weeks due to an enormous amount of work I’ve had to complete to get my design portfolio finished before graduation this week. This video summed up the things I was doing (and still find myself doing) at many intervals. I’m approaching the finish line however and will be back to the regular schedule next week.
I’ve been boppin’ to this mixtape from Brooklyn-based DJ and recording artist MeL0-X.
An excerpt from the site:
FEWTURE is MeLo-X’s most experimental and genre bending project since his Maxwell BLACKsummers’night Instrumental Album back in 2009. FEWTURE is a true testament to MeLo’s self proclaimed “experimental free music” style. From soundscape like tracks and piano solos, to head nodding drumloops and broken beats MeLo is truly free of any genre or style. Complex but groove worthy rhythms infused with soothing and uplifting chords created through strong synths, heavy bass lines and at times just basic piano keys help paint MeLo’s vision of the “Fewture”. There are even elements of Juke and Dirty South griminess sprinkled throughout this eclectic, abstract, and visionary album.
Take a listen or purchase the album here.
Have a great weekend!

Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto collaborated with Hermès to reproduce these polaroids in a series of 140 limited edition scarves.
If I had a few thousand of dollars lying around I’d surely get one of these.
See more of them here.
Clear typography on this street art by Sean Hart. Really easily conveys the message.
He’s got a ton of work on his site. Check that out here.
I can’t take credit for creating the color swatches on the above images. They were taken from the most amazing Tumblr page I stumbled upon yesterday called Beyoncé Palettes. It’s full of beautiful photography of my favorite diva. A genius idea. Gotta love the internet for bring stans (fans bordering on being stalkers) together.
Have a great weekend!

This video by Pentagram in celebration of their 40 year anniversary is absolutely hilarious! Pentagram is one of my favorite agencies and videos like this are a great reminder as to why they’re one of the top design firms in the world.
Complex also did a write-up on some of the posters the company did in further celebration. The posters highlight major historical or cultural events for the past 40 years. Definitely worth checking out. See that here.
Packaging is one of my favorite forms of design. Mostly because it’s nice to know that as things become increasingly digital, packaging will always exist to be a category where printing is imperative and you’ll be able to touch and feel the design.
I love the colors and the hand-done elements on these natural and healthy snacks from BioFoodLab.

Great photography and palettes (as always) from the Fall 2012 Boxing Kitten collection.
