Progress - Limited Edition Tee by 200nipples

The only absolute in this life is change itself. (Cliche but true, right? Stick with me.)

Every moment of our lives change is afoot. It’s within and around us all day, every day. In those every-moments we have an opportunity to affect that change.

There’s no stopping it, only directing it. Preserving the status quo will always be a short-term game pursued by those in power at the expense of those who are not.

The real question is will the changes happening in and around you right now going to be progress or regress? Are you getting older and wiser through introspection and analysis; or are you becoming worn down and cynical out of laziness? Does your self, family, community, and environment benefit from your existence; or are you dead weight?

The way is up to us, the change is not. Try not to waste too much time in apathy and fear. That’s easier said than done, but stewing doesn’t help. So, get in the game and make yourself and your small part of the world better. Oh yeah: and buy this shirt. (And if someone asks you what it means, tell them it’s better than the only alternative.)

COLOURlovers and ColorSchemer merge to for CHROMAom

…will launch in the next few months as the ultimate color authority, aiming to be the “Nielsen for all things color.”


COLOURlovers has always been fantastic. This is great news. I’m excited to see what sort of things CHROMAom brings to market (other than weirdly capitalized branding.) The current placeholder site up at certainly whets the appetite with this welcoming statement:

Color enlightenment can not be given to you. It can only be discovered on your own. With the right tools, inspiration and guidance this can be a creative and enjoyable journey. We’re here to help you reach your color enlightenment.

Sitting Pretty - Limited Edition T-Shirt by 200nipples

At My Leisure - Limited edition tee by 200nipples

I’m not sure I know why I was so enamored with this graphic when it first came across the 200nipples desk, but I love it. There’s something comforting about furniture. It’s solid and tangible; heavy. (Not like, say, a website.) I’m inexperienced with woodworking and upholsterers tools, though. More of a keyboard guy. So now, I can sport this shirt with a little old world craftsmanship across the chest.

The cart is fixed...

Had a few hiccups last Monday with ordering girl-cut tees. (Super sorry ’bout that.)

This has been fixed. Keep calm, carry on.

Microsoft attributes $100,000,000 to using the right shade of blue...

In his presentation at Microsoft’s MIX10 conference, Paul Ray talked about the design process behind Microsoft’s new search engine, Bing, including how the team uses data and design principles to make decisions.

Apple Magic Mouse; Fixed?

Being a fan of Apple products I picked up a Magic Mouse a few days after it launched. After using it for a week I was hooked on its multi-touch surface, but it was awkward to hold and after an hour or two of using it I would develop a pain in my wrist. Looking into the problem further, I found out that a large majority of Magic Mouse owners were having similar problems and all of the online product reviews I read revealed the same flaw. The Magic Mouse does not contour to the users hand. So, being a product designer and manufacturer, I decided to see what I could do to fix it.

When Apple gets a product right, they really get it right. Unfortunately this makes their goofs (pretty much all the mice they’ve made, Apple TV, etc…) really stick out. This guy took matters into his own, er, hands.

Classic-Cut: My Way by 200nipples

Does little blue alien man have a decision to make… Or is he offering us ultimatum? Has he been cast out of the halftoned-sky-metropolis, or is he guardian, standing as Cerberus at the crossroads issuing a this-or that warning to all who would enter?

We’ll probably never know.

Beautiful Storage/Hideaway/Murphy Beds at Design*Sponge

Unless you’re a vampire, chances are you have a bed in your tiny-ass apartment. (Come to think of it, interior design for vampires and their coffins seems like a pretty lucrativearea these days.) A bed is arguably the most important piece of furniture in your home. You can go without a couch or coffee table, but you’ve gotta find someplace to spend those 8 hours a night.
