Re: Road Trip Toronto to Montreal (via?)

There's a really good stationary store called Nota Bene in Montreal. They have a bunch of Valentine Typewriters in their window and they also sell good stationary/pens/design stuff.

Re: Are we ruining the world?

I read recently that the average American throws away 30+ lbs of clothing a year. You only have to get a couple of dress shirts from one of those popular fast fashion brands to realize they won't last past two washes and feel like cardboard, vs a nice dress shirt that fits and feels awesome and wil...

Re: Are we ruining the world?

Remind me of the time i saw Manzini, he was asking the question: do we need another chair? I think that either we do or not need another new chair, we will keep producing new products and the industry will keep producing even if we design or not, so is our job as designers to make this better, make...

I don't think I've seen the sun for at least a week and a half here in Beijing due to "hazardous" air and I've been reading articles about India surpassing Beijing in bad air quality, somehow I feel partly responsible. As industrial designers we have a large footprint with regard to our contribution...

Re: The Most Entertaining Job Ad Ever

Imagine that we would like the website to be appealing to Tokyo Pop Culture with Jamaican influences.
Finally, the island charm of Jamaica intersects with the Flash of Tokyo Pop culture. Truly a time to be alive.

Re: New Grad Portfolio Critique

Hey Imaan, Your vacuum is super excellent and concise, you explain your process in a very intuitive manner which is great, I would follow the same structure with your other projects. That being said, none of the projects on your Behance page are consumer electronics which will be confusing if your s...

Basically they want to use a design which they saw on my Coroflot page that I did on my own, so no problems there. Howe...
