The future of air travel is different. No more little porthole windows, uncomfortable seats, and shitty peanuts. No, the future of air travel has panoramic views, lush couches, and champagne. Ok, maybe not the champagne. But customers of the jet business are looking towards creating more comfortable experiences, opulent ones augmented by innovative interior work. While us plebs might not be seeing this anytime soon, it just goes to show that design will change the way we live and work. Some photos below, courtesy of Dezeen.
Urban sprawl is like the MSG that seasons Los Angeles: it’s so bad, yet oh-so-good. What I mean is because LA is so geographically expansive, there’s an ever refreshed list of places to see, taste, and explore across all corners of neighborhoods falling within the designation of “LA County”. I live in the tiny corner of Silver Lake, but as a born and bred Angeleno who has lived in various sections of the county, I think much of what makes my hometown inspiring for locals and visitors alike are the neighborhoods east of what is typically highlighted as Los Angeles. Here is a very whittled down list of some of my favorite spots mapped out using Jauntful, viewable and downloadable as a print-out to guide you on your next LA adventure.
Nike continues to bring it hard. This summer, the iconic Air Max 1 gets an upgrade that includes a mesh upper kept together with their Hyperfuse technology and a hit of orange. Daaaaamn, so ready to lace up.
Well, I scored another pack of Yo! MTV Raps trading cards off eBay so it’s time for another mix from what was inside. There were a couple repeats from the first time around, but no one here’s a one hit wonder. Ready for your late 80s/early 90s fix? Kick back and click.

What’s just as exciting as taking things out of your old wallet and putting them in a new one?! Decorating your office workspace, of course. While I was searching for new decor for my work area, I found this enamel steel sign by Best Made Company. I found it five minutes ago and I think it’s so fabulous I had to share it with you right away. LOOK AT IT. Now buy it (or at least ask yourself this question every morning).
Wes Anderson is known for his meticulous attention to detail, so these minimalist posters inspired by his film’s finer points are spot-on. Our bud David Klinker from O&P designed one for each of Anderson’s eight motion pictures, and they’re better than a butterscotch sundae. The 18×24″ prints will be typeset in Akzidenz-Grotesk Medium, silkscreened on recycled Speckletone, and produced under 100% hydropower at a Niles, Michigan paper company. Cuss yeah!
Need one for your wall? Bring them to life by backing the Swiss Anderson project on Kickstarter. It just launched today and is (not surprisingly) well on its way to the $1,500 funding goal. Get dibs on an awesome print before they cancel Latin!
