Print & Pattern Store

Print & Pattern Store


(Edit: I originally wrote this entry in a huge hurry, and it sucked, so I apologize.)

If you read my blog enough, you realize I get a serious boner for cool patterns. So reading a blog like Print & Pattern is pure heaven for me. That’s literally all her blog is about, the most beautiful prints and patterns from around the world… it’s amazing that she’s able to find so many.
Well now she’s opened a small bookstore through Amazon, selling books devoted to amazing patterns. She has nearly 50 books in the store, all of them extremely cute. How awesome are the patterns are above? The color combos and shapes are so great.

You can check out all of the titles by clicking here!

IMAKETHINGS

IMAKETHINGS

I hadn’t visited Design*Sponge in a little while, so I was browsing through stuff when I came across the above skate decks by IMAKETHINGS. IMT is the moniker of Andrew Groves, an “illustrator and maker of small things and creator of beasts with a head filled with creatures that he has seen or wished he had seen”. I love his how clean and precise his style is, and his use of blacks is really amazing.
Be sure to check out the work on his site, and his blog as well, from which I snagged that picture of his custom designed sneakers.

Pottery Barn’s Smart Furniture

Pottery Barn’s Smart Furniture

Pottery Barn, makers of evil, suburban living room filling furniture, has actually taken an odd step forward in design.
They’ve started creating furniture, like the bulletin board above, that is embedded with speakers for listening to your iPod, or electrical plugs built in for your electronics. While I think this is a great idea, and I anticipate more companies jumping on this idea in the near future, the furniture still looks like it came from Pottery Barn… : (

Little Big Planet

I’ve always been a big video game nerd, but I have yet to make the jump to a “next gen” gaming console like the PS3, Wii or 360. But watching this trailer seriously makes me want to get a PS3. The game is called Little Big Planet, and it gives you the power to completely customize the characters and world around you. In fact, you don’t just customize it, you can totally create it. You’re given hundreds of shapes and textures and you can literally make anything you want.
I could see it being really fun to create all sorts of weird content, but on the other hand, I could see it being kind of a pain in the ass trying to make gigantic levels.

Weird enough, I received an e-mail from Christian over at Dansk Dynamit, asking me if I’d like to do an interview for his site, and of course, I said yes!

So hello to all my new friends coming to visit from the Scandinavian countries!

CRAZY4CULT Contest

CRAZY4CULT Contest

This is such a rad idea! Gallery 1988 is having a contest where you decipher all of the cult movies featured in the poster above. I have to say, that I’m pretty sure I got all of them. Not to mention that it’s an absolutely AMAZING poster designed by Christopher Lee.
To enter into the contest, send an e-mail to [email protected], and to buy the poster… well I’m not sure, just e-mail them and say you want one!

Sony’s MPEG4 Net Sharing Camcorder

Sony’s MPEG4 Net Sharing Camcorder

I’m really loving the look of Sony’s new Myspace/YouTube camera (c’mon, that exactly what this thing is for). But even though it’s aimed at wanna-be internet celebrities, I love the sleek, minimal form they gave it. The boxiness of it reminds me of old school Walkmen. How weird is it that we have video cameras the size of Walkmens?

You can get it online here for $199.

KAWS 4 Foot Tall Companion Figure

KAWS 4 Foot Tall Companion Figure

I checked out KAWS blog over at Honeyee and was so surprised to see this GIANT 4 foot tall Companion! It looks so crazy to see it so big (that’s what she said)!
Looking at it made me think about how crazy an entire KAWS designed theme park would be. You’d have giant Chums running around with the bomb looking Blitz guys! It would be like a big fucked up Disneyland!
