Under Consideration Quarterly is the brain (super) child of the fine folks at Under Consideration. The idea is simple: take the best stuff they ever post on their foursome of fabulosity (Art of the Menu, Brand New, For Print Only, and Quipsologies) and put it all in printed issues you can touch, smell, taste, whatever it is you enjoy doing with books made out of paper nowadays. What’s also neat is that they know people don’t like to read stuff, so each issue only contains project images and their titles. Isn’t that awesome? Now look at the pictures below and don’t tell me you’d rather spend your money on a new iPad sleeve.
The MiiR Tumbler is a neat coffee/tea tumbler that gives back to those in need. Each Tumbler provides one person with clean drinking water for an entire year and comes with a unique tracking bracelet that has an engraved identification number. The personal identification number can be entered into the MiiR tracking system online, allowing you to see what project you helped fund! Isn’t that nifty? It comes in different colors, too. Yay! Options!
The offices of Bulldog Drummond look exactly like someone’s really awesome house that you would envy. It also happens to be located right here where I live (in San Diego)! Bulldog Drummond is an innovation and design consultancy whose clients have included Starbucks, Nike, Disney, Adidas, and many more.
At the core of success is what the consultancy calls “Uncommon Sense,” which is a term they use to describe that opportunities can be realized, and complex challenges can be solved by using simplicity and determination. From the looks of it, their Victorian house-turned-office space exemplifies this Uncommon Sense sentiment very well. The space is stylish and sharp, but it’s not complicated. It’s also the perfect marriage between classic British style and California flair.
I don’t know about you, but looking at this office space gives me the taste of cake in my mouth.
This David Hasselhoff painting by Jon Stich is fabulous beyond words. I just discovered it ten minutes ago and it was so important that I had to share my thoughts about it right away. In fact, I don’t even have thoughts about it. I just want you to know that it exists and I’m hoping that it remains in your memory forever. I mean, just look at it.
This masterpiece is also available as a print from Etsy, so I definitely plan on breaking my no-luxuries rule and purchasing a copy as soon as possible. The silliness of it aside, it also addresses the issue with pollution.
For more kicks and giggles, have another Jon Stich painting:
I drink your milkshake. I drink it up.
