OBEY and get out the vote!

get out the vote 2004 and 2008 sponsored by AIGA

im just sayin...

okay so i wanted to do a post of political posters throughout the ages, but my attention was diverted to the current race. *surprise surprise* i was so impressed with all the obama designs i had a hard time picking just a few... and then i started searching for mccain flair. they actually had a poster contest on the official site. can you guess which lovely design won? give it up for 'integrity we can trust'. you can see all the designs here. i say no more.

A progress by Scott Hansen of iso50
B progress by Shepard Fairey

D state logos
E make mine barack by Joshua Wentz
F HOPE by Robert Indiana
G Obama logo by Sender LLC.

loyal loot

i saw these really uniquel bowls during the christmas season but forget to post them. you can find them here! to buy check out vivre.com.

muji! hai!

i desperately wish we had the japanese store muji in dallas. everything is beautifully designed, functional and doesn't cost a fortune. you can get some items online but you're best bet is to go to england or japan. but then again since the dollar is so weak...nevermind. here is a smattering of what you might find thanks to green-bydesign.blogspot.com and www.ohdeedoh.com

just kidding. after watching some designers play around with lino block prints at work i was super excited to find these cute little stamps by corrabelle. check out her store, the mayberry sparrow, on etsy.


who doesn't love polka dots? since i really don't wear any kind of heel or blister-inducing shoes, i prefer to seek out cool tennis shoes. i just bought the blue eco friendly tennies by Simple here.
