Wrap ‘N’ Mat

I would definitely use a Wrap-n-Mat for packing my lunch. It’s nice to see such a simple, yet stylish, and environmentally sound way to pack a sandwich. Anyone who is a supporter of packing their own lunch knows that tupper-ware just doesn’t work for a sandwich and one time use bags are terrible for the environment.

la Une du Menu

Being the kind of person that sometimes likes to organize the food on your plate does not make you weird. Organizing the food on your plate and then not eating it makes you weird. That said these plates designed by Pierre Georges are amazing. He took a grid based on Le Monde newspaper and silk screened it on to these simple white plates. The result is a set of dishes with a bit of griding overlaid on a portion of the plate. It gives you a nice asymmetrical area to play around with the layout of your meal. I would love to see what one could do combining these plates and some alphabets soup.

Proper BBQ

Thomas Hayes created this bold identity and packaging, with a very appropriate vernacular, for PROPER BBQ. I am getting the feeling that this is a student project, which is too bad for the folks out there, like myself, who love design and barbecue! Either way this is a really nice project and it was also recently featured on Lovely Package(awesome name).

Ballard Bee Company

Don’t let the sterile packing fool you, Ballard Bee is unfiltered raw honey made locally in Northwest Seattle. Corky Luster and his 60 hives currently located at his house in Northwest Seattle come together to make Ballard Honey. Luster’s plan is to expand his operation to approximately 100 hives sprinkled around his neighborhood, in 2011. I am definitely adding this to my mental list of amazing products coming out of the Northwest right now.

Let It Dough!

Christoph Neimann has a knack for communicating great ideas with simple means and materials. His new piece for his New York Times Blog: Abstract City reminds me of his earlier project turned book, I Lego NY. Which illustrated areas geography, objects, landmarks and an array of other things that define New York City to New Yorkers.

Let It Dough! takes on some fun mildly holiday oriented ideals through cookie dough. Pretty genius right?My two favorites have to be the West Village one and the Eternity one both below. Hilarious truisms.

Friends of Type: Jessica Hische

Coicidentaly my friend Jessica Hische was contributor on Friends of Type back in October and I just came across the pieces she posted again this morning on her blog and wanted to share them. Some fun stuff there I think we can all relate to and agree upon. Especially that Sriracha should make up a measurable portion of any balanced diet.


Douglas Richard Design

Designed by Douglas Richardson. This branding and collateral for a Pennsylvania based initiative, Farm to City, which connect farmers with people in cities. Their goal is to grow access to farm fresh foods in urban areas. I really love the colors and feeling of all the elements. Especially the main logo which you can see after the jump.

Happy Thanksgiving

This is my favorite holiday for many reasons, I mean the food doesn’t hurt, but it seems to remain the least commercial holiday. It’s about being thankful and spending time with the people you love. I have a lot to be thankful for this year. Just a few things to touch on, my amazing developer Jackie Balzer that single handedly built campsite from the ground up. My mother Joan and my father Bill, all my friends. My amazing girlfriend Erin, and our amazing miniature schnauzer Ernest Ellerd.

So thank you all for reading, and becoming part of my family. I am thankful for each and everyone of you!


Food Spotting


Food Spotting
is by far the coolest social media app. I have seen in a long time. Combining all the awesome capabilities of geo-tagging, crowd-sourcing and food. The features of and potential for this app are awesome, and it truly one ups Yelp and Menupages.

shire vacation 2010

I had a great week off, got a chance to really put my new iPhone 4 through the paces in low service areas, and I am like the rest of the world right now, super impressed with the quality of the camera for both stills and videos. That being said these are some choice shots off my iPhone 4 from my vacation up in the Berkshires with E and Ernest.

To celebrate our birthdays this year E and I decided to spend a week in the Berkshires with my parents, our dog Ernest and his best friend Wellington. The week quickly became a whirlwind of great food, fantastic weather and good company. Not to mention a lot of great beer and wine.
