I love this image. I haven’t had a minute to post it, but it’s definitely been stuck in my head. Incredibly talented German designer Katrin Schacke created it for a beautiful editorial spread, and even though I can’t quite tell what it’s about (language barrier), I love it.
It’s fresh and quirky but uses recognizable elements and tells a unique story, and I want to know more about it. Or, maybe it’s just about having more plants in your office building, which is also something I can completely get behind.

I am incredibly impressed by this series of puzzle books called Chomp by Mirim Seo. Not only are they a good looking bit of creativity and craftsmanship, they’re also a simple but effective learning tool. Each puzzle breaks apart into several distinct and friendly little critters, and each puzzle comes together to form a very basic, but super clever, food chain.
This seems like the kind of toy that might be difficult to just hand over to a child (who probably wouldn’t appreciate all the time and thought poured into it), but it would hopefully be one that could be held onto and appreciated for years to come.

This type project by Mia Dörwald rules. Actually, all of her typography work rules, but this is the one that stuck out to me the most. The imagery makes the whole thing feel like a high fashion something, but really it’s all melty and weird. It’s perfect.

The shapes, lines, and figures that Skip Hursh conjures up are just bonkers great. He’s also a solid contributor at The Fox Is Black, he has an online store with 1 million great prints in it, he makes really rad animated gifs, and his middle name is apparently Dolphin. For some people that might be a little too much awesome, but I think he pulls it off wonderfully.

This is the bike light I want. Yep.
Lean and luminous, these detachable LED bike lights withstand all weather conditions and pop with color. Stockholm-based Bookman considered the essentials: color block shape, curved underside, oversized rubber button and a groove for the attaching elastic cord. Three flashing modes: slow, fast and steady. The front light flashes white; the taillight is red. Sure it’s cool on a bike. But we can think of many more uses…can you?
