I am always fascinated by the ephemeral in American Design. A box of Crayons, Log Cabins, a can of Coke – we take them for granted. Don’t forget to wonder and marvel at all the great little things!

Absolute Sellout curates a small, limited quantity, collection of objects and literature for your purchase.

Karsten Schmidt from Etapes on Vimeo.

“…he is actively exploring current possibilities at the intersection of design, art, software development and education and applying these in a variety of fields. A strong conceptual thinker and always striving for maximum creative freedom, Karsten’s design approach is based on treating ideas as software at the heart, which in turn informs all other facets of each project.”

Part of what he talks about here is blurring the boundaries between “technical” and “artistic” skill, and how that generally breaks down within the current hierarchy of the industry. As a programmer who enjoys (but doesn’t have much opportunity to explore) code-driven creative design and animation, this speaks to me.

Being somewhat interested in house/techno music as well as design (so rare these days!) I came across Merijn’s updates almost simultaneously but from different sources. Always incredible detail and playful collages by Merijn Hos
