If you read pretty much any other blog on the face of the planet, you’ve probably already seen the awesome trailer for Gary Hustwit’s new upcoming film Objectified. The film is a documentary about industrial design, and some of the brilliant people who’ve blessed our world with their incredible objects. The film features some of my heroes like Dieter Rams, Jonathan Ive, Marc Newson, and Naoto Fukasawa, so I’m super stoked on seeing this.
The trailer definitely gets me really excited to see this, especially if it’s even half as good as his last documentary, Helvetica. I’ve watched this trailer about 12 times now, hopefully you all enjoy it is as much as I do.
I came across the paintings of Kenichi Hoshine rather randomly, LinkedIn of all things, but I was immediately drawn to them. His work is somewhat abstract, but features small and beautiful details that really make the piece exciting, or at least for me. They also seem quite accidental, though I’m sure if I tried to do what he does I’d fail miserably. I’d really love to see his paintings up close, I bet the details are stunning.
Did anyone manage to go to his show in New York last month?
If the photo above is even the smallest preview of what this spring/summer is going to look like, man oh man will this be a fun year. The polariod above is a preview of the upcoming line of Band of Outsiders, and they’re showing some pretty damn awesome pieces off so far. Everything looks really classic, and well, comfortable. I can’t wait to lounge around in some shorts and boat shoes. I miss summer!

Jean Jullien, one of my favorite Frenchmen in the world, just updated his portfolio yesterday with some fun new projects, like the one you see above for this brother’s band Niwouinwouin. He’s also updated his visual diary, which is where I snagged the bottom image from. I really think he’s an incredible illustrator, especially because his daily doodles seem totally amazing to me. I love reading through all the little annotations he does.

New fonts are always fun, so I was excited to see this fancy font from YouWorkForThem called Hannah. As the site says, it’s “comprised of three versions that work together as one, producing not variation and contrast between weights but between widths.” It’s a quirky hand drawn type that has all sorts of character, and is only $35. Perfect.
