Adventures in New York kicked off with visiting the ball pit/studio of Chandelier Creative (aka Awesomevile.com) at their SoHo penthouse! We shared the pop up book version of the penthouse a few years ago ~ as well as the honey from their surf shack… fun to see all the visual references from the pop up book in reality… from the enormous pink CNC’d doors, to the piano, ball pit, moooi horse lamp, studio dogs and more… take a peek at it all on the next page!
The iconic Moo “business” cards which can easily feature your whole Flickr/photo library have taken it to the next level… now you can get Moo Luxe Business Cards! What makes them so luxe? Besides the awesome new packaging with the magnetic box? Mohawk Superfine paper with Moo Quadplex technology to make a card of triple thickness and weight (vs most ordinary cards) with a rich seam of color within the layers of paper… Take a look at the unboxing of the set they sent over (which i quickly made a variation of my old shorter cards…) on the next page!

Hard to miss on La Cienega last night was Glenn Kaino’s “Bring Me the Hands of Piri Reis” at the Honor Fraser Gallery. From the large exploded boat sculpture filling the main room ~ to a beautiful series of map inspired pieces ~ to fists ~ photography ~ and so much more… it’s quite an extensive solo show! Take a peek at some of the work on the next page.
Amazing what one can do with thread and ribbon… particularly Brian Wills in his show “Unwound” over at Nye+Brown! Discovered his work while wandering the S. La Cienega Art Walk I showed you other random pictures of inspiration from tonight… take a look at some of the work on the next page!
So much art tonight ~ parking was lacking ~ food trucks were out ~ and the mysterious galleries of S. La Cienega had people flowing and drinking between them all evening. While i have tons of pics and quite a few posts to come ~ wanted to share some of the randomer pictures of inspiration and amusement with you before i fell asleep! Take a peek on the next page…
p.s. not certain which pics/galleries some of these were in as we randomly bounced in and out… favorites to come with more info soon!
Been spending the start of the year setting up NOTlabs, so apologies for the quiet 2012 so far! Before we rush ahead into what 2012 has to offer ~ here’s a quick look back at 2011 in 100 of the top of NOTCOT.org ~ click the little pics to see the posts!
On holiday cards too good not to share ~ here’s one that just came from Division of ~ “a multi-disciplinary creative agency based in NYC.” The card reads “The peace, love, and joy we wish you this holiday season is immeasurable. Here’s a ruler for everything else.” Love the laser cut acrylic ruler and the letterpressed card (pressed by Dolce Press) it aligns so perfectly with for stencil commentary! Take a peek at the fun on the next page!
Leave it to the packaging geniuses at London/NY based Stranger & Stranger to manage to bottle up Holiday Spirit! Remember last year’s absolutely stunning No 12. Christmas Absinthe? (And they are also the design masterminds behind packaging like the Kraken!) This year they’ve taken to Spirit No. 13 ~ in proper brown bagged style, rubber band and all… and the ads are hilarious. And that’s before you even get in to the very detailed apothecary styled label inside! Take a look at all of the amazing details on the next page…
