Geoff McFetridge for Patagonia

Design // Monday, December 22, 2014
We are huge fans of both Patagonia and Geoff McFetridge. Give us one of those hooded down sweaters and a Geoff painting, we are doing well. While getting coffee at our neighborhood spot this weekend, we saw an awesome mural/installation/product study on Patagonia's down products featuring the art of Geoff McFetridge. That led us to remember Geoff directed a short for the brand and has done some graphics for the SoCal outdoor company in recent years.

Design // Sunday, December 21, 2014
This may be our favorite category yet in our ongoing spotlights on the A'Design Awards: Architecture, Building, and Structure Design. We travel, live in urban epicenters, appreciate a good building when we see one, so this category has some of the best things we have seen yet.

A Shrine to Circles and Dots, Squares and Rectangles

Design // Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Today our continued obsession with typographic album covers has lead us to Project Thirty-Three, a collection and shrine to "circles and dots, squares and rectangles, and triangles, and the designers that make these shapes come to life on album covers." Maintained by Jive Time Records, a Seattle-based store specializing in used vinyl, the site also features other record related galleries that you can spend way too much time getting lost in...

Design // Friday, December 12, 2014
It is Friday, it is the holidays, and we could use an afternoon beer. And now we are even more thirsty after seeing that Danish artist Troels Carlsen created a unique label design for Danish specialty beer Wiibroe Årgangsøl. This is the 27th time that the company has had a Danish artist create a special label, and Carlsen being one of the best in contemporary Danish art, we love the look.
