Take a look at this great set (100 in all) that photographer Scott London took during this year’s mother of all freak-fests, Burning Man. I’ve never been myself and honestly, I still haven’t worked up the courage to spend that much time out there in the desert without all the modern amenities I’ve grown accustomed to, but it’s amazing to see such a large group of people creating huge structures, machines and other artwork in the vastness of that terrain.Maybe next year…maybe…

Just got my promotional mailer officially announcing Design Philadelphia 2011. Now in it’s 7th year, Design Philadelphia is a ten day long city wide umbrella of events, speakers, exhibitions and workshops in many mediums include graphic design, fine art, fashion, photography and more. I’ll be trying to hit as many highlights as I can (last year’s Light Drift installation by artist Meejin Yoon was fantastic) through the Oct. 13-23 timeframe.
Follow all the upcoming Design Philadelphia events here.
And be sure to check out Mike Smith‘s excellent posters designs (like Participate above) promoting Design Philadelphia here.

Taking a much needed break over the holidays from all things design related and … well, hopefully just relaxing. I’ll be back after the New Year with lots of new ideas for the blog and more personal work to share.
See you on the other side.
I just want to wish everyone the happiest of holidays and a joyous new year! When I started this blog back in March, as a way of showcasing new work and also to celebrate all the amazing artists, designers and creators I love, I never dreamed I would get as huge a response as I have had. Two hundred plus posts, hundreds of comments, and thousands of visitors later, I feel really lucky to have a great outlet that many of you enjoy reading as well. There’s some more content coming in the next couple of weeks, but just wanted to extend my appreciation and holiday cheer now.
Here’s to an even brighter and better 2011!
