I am a total sucker for packaging and have been known to buy certain things just because of that. A good example of this is the amount of Matilde milk that I consumed while I was in Denmark this summer. How could you say no to this face?


Anyways, I am loving the graphics on Pop Ink's soap. They also have a line of witty dinnerware with names such as Naked Lunch and Cannibal Kingdom.

My work will be featured in "VALUE-ables", an off-campus Product Design show by graduating seniors of Pratt Institute's Industrial Design Studio 402A-03. The show will take place May 2nd from 6 - 11 pm. Follow the link below for further information and a directional map link.


Every time the site is "re-freshed" it loads a different photo related to a specific value considered for each student's product. Refresh until you see the bright red lettering, which is a clue to what I will be showing. If you have been reading my blog you may have picked up some others hints, but will have to come to the show to see how they all fit together!

I love when the most random things happen

So I got an email from someone at Wikipedia asking if they could use one of my photos of when I saw Bob Dorough play in a coffee shop in Pennsylvania a few summers ago. FYI, he is the guy who wrote and sings the School House Rock songs. Of course I said yes and it is up with me credited underneith. You can check it out here

I saw this ring , 'Knopfring' (button ring) from XS-M-L over at Bloesem and just had to reblog it. Xs-M-L is made up of Diana van Golden, Charlotte Vonkeman and Marije Cnossen all Dutch designers and I am in LOVE it and all of their products!

Odds and ends

The countdown to graduation/Pratt show/studio show has begun and things have gotten a little bit crazy so over the weekend I did a bit of spring cleaning to calm my nerves. Cleaning and organizing has an oddly soothing effect on me and clears my mind. While I was at it I snapped some photos of my current projects and some of my flea market finds from Alabama that I haven't shown yet.

Collinsville Alabama Flea Market Find

I found these at the Collinsville, Alabama flea market all 4 for $1! I've been using them ever since it has gotten a little warmer since they seem like such summery glasses to me.

Collinsville Alabama Flea Market Find

All of my plates have been breaking and chipping on me, I don't like them very much anyways so I was excited to replace some of them with these, I got 2 for 50 cents!

So many pillows!

I have been churning out pillow prototypes. The three on the left are the best of the bunch so far, the two on the right are the usual throw pillows.
