1. Starbucks Red Cup Design
I read this really cool article on the back story of the annual design of the “red cups” at Starbucks. The post even shares the sketch that started it all… really cool concept and amazing execution across all the platforms from the cups to the coffee bean bags. Found via The Dieline.
2. Greg Lauren Limited Edition Fragrance
I haven’t a clue how this fragrance smells but the handmade packaging already makes me want to buy it!
Each bottle has the same feel but no two are exactly alike. ‘I wanted the bottle to feel special,’ says Lauren. ‘To do this I made the labels out of various materials. I used paper, fabric and even small scraps of vintage military fabrics. Then each has my hand-written name on a torn piece of classic masking tape. The labels are then stained with everything from coffee, ink, pencil and pastels.’
3. Chic iPad Cases
My husband asked if we could get an iPad as a joint Christmas present to ourselves. So what am I most excited for? Getting an iPad case of course! Thanks to Design*Sponge for their well timed article…
4. Kelly Moore’s Home
I really love this home, featured on A Beautiful Mess. And I really love the way she’s (Kelly Moore Clark) printed large scale images of her children, and their family, making each print into a piece of art really. When can I move in? 🙂
