Design Friday: Chuck

designfridayStep right up for the coolest shelf you have ever seen. What, you say, this appears to just be a normal shelf?

BAM. Think again.

Chuck

Meet Chuck, the shelf you never knew you needed until now. The combination of flexibility and gravity means you have almost unlimited options for displaying your belongings with stability and ease. Plus, it’s made from stainless steel and wood, which are the two best materials for furniture if you ask me.

What would you use this shelf for? I’m thinking put it outside and hope your potted plants stay up there. That could be visually very interesting.

People are so creative, I am amazed.

Blog Envy #1

BlogEnvy

It’s time for my first official Blog Envy post! I want this monthly segment to be a place where I share some of my favorite sites with y’all, and maybe you share some of yours with me in the comments? Yes? Sounds like a plan.

First up,

Retail/Shopping: A Kind Of Guise

AKOG1 AKOG2

I’ve blogged about this German company many times before, but I just want to make sure that no one misses out on all the awesome going down over the pond! They are extremely talented, witty, and keep it real (you have to respect that in a company). See their latest clothing lines, company news, random pictures of their glorious Dog de Bordeux in residence, and simply enjoy the eye candy that is the AKOG site.

Fashion Blogs: Sandra Hagelstam’s 5 Inch and Up

Sandrabyzanita1

Hailing from Finland, this London based blogger is hands down one of the coolest girls in the industry.  I am constantly inspired by her ability to mix classic silhouettes with the minimalist edge made famous by Scandinavians (seriously, is there something in the water over there?).

Expect to see her personal style flawlessly photographed, latest purchases and styling projects. If you’re ready to experience major hair envy, head on over.

Design Inspiration: RoAndCo

RoAndCo is a “multi-disceplenary design studio devoted to holistic branding that serves a range of fashion, art and lifestyle clients.” Basically, they fix problems and provide solutions in the coolest ways imaginable. Remember Svbscription? All RoAndCo.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the projects flashing in front of your eyes, jump in and explore!

Typography: Lost Type Co-Op

I like the vibe of this company. You pay as much as you want (free is also an option) for some of the coolest fonts around.

Great company, fantastic fonts, what’s not to love? Go see for yourself!

So that’s it! The first Blog Envy is done! Now it’s your turn to tell me about some of your favorite sites in the comments! Don’t forget that you can always see my favorite sites for yourself on my Inspiration page.

Please go check out their work! These guys are doing incredible things.

Also, if you could not tell, I am really getting into design/branding/typography. Artemis is first and foremost a fashion blog, but you might see some more posts like this in the future. Just a heads up!
