Make Her Say

1:29 Hold up, born in '88 - how old is that? old enough

Okay, so a lot of people don't like Kanye cause he's kind of a douche... but you have to admit the boy knows damn well what's up when it comes to producing music.

Typophile for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, champs. There's a lot to be thankful for :)

with BYU Design students & faculty

To quote my friend Kevin, "It takes Americans, on average, one month more than Canadians to realize there are things to be thankful for in any given year... Better late than never!"

826DC: unnatural

The good people of 826 National have penned their latest D.C. chapter under the guise of The Museum of Unnatural History. Design direction by Oliver Munday, this store is of the same gem family as Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. (designed by Sam Potts), The Boring Store (designed by Chris Ware), Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co., The Pirate Store, and the Liberty Street Robot Supply & Repair. They officially opened Oct.22, 2010 in Washington, D.C. and, as per usual, all proceeds from sales of their whimsical products go to supporting their numerous writing programs that help improve national literacy rates.

Started in 2002 by Dave Eggers in San Francisco*, 826 National is a nonprofit dedicated to helping students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills. So support literacy, beautiful design, and good-hearted people, and click-click away!

ps. if you happen to know which brilliant minds were behind the design of the other stores, please let me know! It's only right to give them their due props for such amazing work.
