Nicole Lavelle Internet Store


The incredibly talented and extremely sweet Nicole Lavelle has recently launched an internet store! There are prints, original works, postcards, and even the option to commission a piece. She’s about to embark on yet another journey, this time to New York for an intensive writing workshop. Here’s a nice little note that explains it…

Hello internet friends,

Last month I was accepted to the School of Visual Arts’ D-Crit Summer intensive, a two-week design writing and research workshop in New York. Booyah! I’m really excited to go learn from people like Steve Heller and Ellen Lupton and see the city through an active, critical lens.

Now I have to find money to send myself there. (Art school is EXPENSIVE!)

So, I made an internet store. There you can purchase items I’ve made to support my educational endeavors! You’ll find things like original word paintings, Xeroxed posters, hand-sewn zines and photo prints. And, in case you’re my dad or my grandma, all the way at the bottom there’s a “donate” link if you just want to support my effort to be a better writer.

Thank you forever!

Go check out the store, there’s a lot of rad stuff. I’m framing a commissioned piece for my haus.

South By Leo Burnett

We are constantly being asked “what is Public School?” We’re not a traditional agency, but we’re not a loose co-operative. Trying to explain what that means though has been difficult. Thankfully, the talented folks at Leo Burnett were able to make some sense of my rambling explanation and have created this great little video out of an interview we did during South By Southwest. Check it out after the jump.

All Streets


It’s an understatement to say that us Americans like our cars. Fathom has beautifully shown us how much we love them by creating this incredibly detailed map of the United States. It has no outlines or features other than over 240 million different road segments around the U.S.. Despite only consisting of roads, major geographical features and population densities are reflected in the way the roads have grown around the landscape. More details here.

Thanks A Lot Coudal

The folks over at Coudal make some killer videos for Field Notes, and this one is no different. In fact, it not only will sell Field Notes, but it will also put all of other creative guys to shame this Valentine’s day. Thanks a lot Coudal. Check it after the jump.

Catena Wall Clock


Not that I have $2,500 lying around for a wall clock, but if I did, I’d buy this one. It’s a wonderful idea and is executed very nicely. If you’re Mitt Romney or the Colbert SuperPAC and are looking to unload some cash on somethin’ rad, pick one up here.
