Project Thirty-Three

Project 33 is an amazing collection of vintage album covers whose design relies solely on graphic shapes. Some of them are really awesome.

The seemingly infinite number of vintage record jackets that convey their message with simple shapes like circles and dots never cease to amaze and amuse me. Project Thirty-Three is my personal collection and shrine to these expressive shapes along with their slightly less jovial but equally effective cousins; squares, rectangles and triangles, and the designers that make them come to life on album covers. Other categories include arrows, lines, abstract shapes, instruments and typography-only. Check back soon as I’ll be adding covers regularly!   –David

Furniture finds

copenhagen chair

I’m not in a position to be buying any furniture — we have more stuff than we have room for. But, if I did have a new place to furnish, this chair would be on the top of my list. I first saw The Copenhagen Chair on Bloesem a little while ago, and fell instantly in love. It was designed by Lars Tornøe for Fora Form and recently won the Award for Design Excellence from the Norwegian Design Council. It comes in a few different woods and colors, but I am really liking the bright pink.

Me and Alhambra Water making friends

I have always loved the design for the Alhambra Water truck. I think it is great that they used such a basic material, giant sequins, to achieve such an elegant design solution. I saw this truck when I was coming into work this morning, and just had to share.
