Typo Talks

Friends, I've been very bad. Bad with my blogging lately. I've been ignoring the blog in order to get some much need items crossed off my to-do list and completed (like my website for one) and I traveled up north to attend TypoSF the Typo International Design Talks in San Francisco a few weeks ago. I've been absolutely giddy with energy and inspiration since! Conferences can be outrageously expensive, but this year I decided to choose a few I thought I could get a big bang for my buck and TypoSF did not disappoint. I'll be doing a write-up this week about some of the fabulous speakers and what I learned. Yes, I actually learned a few things, took notes and didn't doze off during any part of it, even after a great lunch with a glass of wine. Also had a little one on one time with Aaron Draplin himself, the man who closed out the 2-day talks with enormous vigor. Stay tuned.

A Jean-ius Carpet

As we all know, recycling has taken on many new forms in the last 5 years. But this is one of the most interesting and creative recycling items I've seen yet... the Jeans Label Carpet. Old denim labels were assembled into a patch-style carpet and looks pretty darn cool... and genius. For some reason I see it most fitting in a house for a musician.
