From 2013-2018, Erik Brandt exhibited the work of well-known and up and coming designers on a piece of cedar board attached, by himself, to the side of his garage in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The self-initiated exhibition space, titled “_Ficciones Typografika_”:https://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/ficciones-typografika-behind-the-scenes, began as an invite-only project before being opened to submissions and rapidly grew into a “who’s who” of experimental typographic practice within the global design community.

Even the most ardent and hardened of southerners has to admit that Manchester is one of the UK’s great cities. Blessed with an amazing cathedral, an abundance of brilliant pubs and an immense cultural history, we’re always looking for an excuse to hop on the Pendolino from Euston on a Friday evening. Now we have another one.

Apps like Docs, Sheets, and Slides are a collaborative dreamscape, the types of applications that allow kids to split into groups and iterate a project until completion. They also make a good instant messaging platform, according to some teens. “We don’t really pass physical …

When most of us think of family photography, we think of images imbued with nostalgic memories of warm childhood houses and an age of innocence. Photographer Charles-Henry Bédué uses this concept as a starting point for his ongoing series _The House of Happiness_, but instead of capturing the happy connotations of domestic life, he photographs the darker, somewhat disturbing corners of the family home.

As babies, we explore our surroundings, understanding how the world works. We discover the meanings of various signs and symbols, and learn how to use certain objects. Eventually, connecting an object’s appearance with what it actually does (its function) becomes second nature. Pushing a button will lead to a reaction; a handle on a drawer is there to be pulled; red means stop. And then you get to the more complex things – how do we learn how to use taps when some of them are automatic, while others require twisting, pulling, pushing or even tapping (yes, those exist and they mess with your minds!)? And even more mind boggling, how are we supposed to instinctively know what to do with those small, flat, rectangular objects they call smartphones?

How will you wrap your Christmas presents this year? Will you buy some expensive wrapping paper and then silently weep in the corner when you realize you have no idea what you’re doing? Or just give up entirely and pay someone else to do it? Lucky for you, one company out there is aiming to make gift wrapping a little more fun.

Americans often take education for granted. Whether their children attend public or private schools, the opportunity to learn is always there, from kindergarten through high school and often beyond. Meanwhile, many children around the world can only dream of this priceless endowment. Sydney architect Stephen Collier noticed this problem and wanted to take action – so, along with various international non-profit groups, he developed School-in-a-Box, which has helped make the dream of education a reality for many children in Papua New Guinea.

Often times during vacations and sabbaticals we feel this compulsive itch to keep working, which is why Amble's business model is so intriguing. The new program is offering designers the chance to lodge in cozy properties otherwise not available to the public, in exchange for the completion of a design project. Amble partners with nonprofits, conservancies, and small towns to provide the design briefs as well as discounted lodging in return. The program recently launched online with a pilot program happening this November in Yosemite National Park.

Did you know that indoor air pollution can be as bad as or worse than outdoor air pollution? From off-gassing chemicals in paints to mold and dust, the contaminated air inside our homes and offices negatively impacts our health and can lead to fatigue and dizziness, or even respiratory diseases in the long-term. Fortunately, air purification technology has improved in recent years to offer easy and affordable ways to combat indoor air pollutants. Read on to see our review of one such product, the Luft Qi, an on-the-go and filter-free air purifier billed as the smallest of its kind in the world.

Days spent at The Nun’s Room begin as the sun starts to rise over the Western Australia bushland. Jake the whippet stretches his long, slim legs and slowly makes his way out of the bed, giving Sarah some space to follow lead. After Sarah prepares a cup of strong black coffee, the twosome sit down under the gumtree or take a walk through the bush down to the beach, where Sarah plays in the waves, while Jake chases seagulls.

I’ve been a Pinterest user for a long time. I have boards going back years, spanning past interests (art deco weddings) and more recent ones (rubber duck-themed first birthday parties). When I log into the site, I get served up a slate of relevant recommendations—pins featuring colorful images of baby clothes alongside pins of hearty Instant Pot recipes. With each click, the recommendations get more specific. Click on one chicken soup recipe, and other varieties appear. Click on a pin of rubber duck cake pops, and duck cupcakes and a duck-shaped cheese plate quickly populate beneath the header “More like this.”

The Perf House is a project that involved renovating a five-story Georgian terrace house in central London by opening it up and maximizing as much natural light as possible. Designed by AMA, the renovation began by removing all interior walls to enlarge and brighten the spaces. The finished design showcases a modern and connected interior with juxtaposing textures.
