Hello! Fwd: is a linkletter of five weekly designthings I'll email you every Wednesday. It's projects, articles, resources, and other weird/nice/cool things to keep you inspired. Interested? It's super easy to sign up:

The current five ▾

  1. A creative craft:
    "In times of uncertainty and change, it can be difficult to analyze and process. You might not know exactly what to say or how to feel." Alanna Stapleton offers insight into her meditative Instruction Art Quilt from a summer show at the local SOO Visual Arts Center.
  2. A delicious-looking drink:
    The designers of Olssøn Barbieri developed intriguing visuals for a new beverage brand called Ambijus. The soft, but textured, amorphous animations and label graphics perfectly allude to the fermentation process happening inside the bottles.
  3. A kind Kickstarter:
    I love a good smiley face and The Sm;)e Book seems right up my alley. Maybe it could be a delightful, bright yellow addition to your own coffee table.
  4. A productive post:
    Dan Eden is a designer at Facebook and has some thoughtful advice about what he's titled A Tapestry of Tools.
  5. A deck digest:
    Enjoy exploring this excellent Playing Card Collection by Franny Van Eyck. I'm partial to the Brosmind Bicycle deck's eight of spades.
