With the internet, webzines and blogs, you almost forget how nice it is to see print design in real life at a gallery. The smell of freshly printed paper, spray mount and wine all amongst some brilliant design. Oh the joy! I visited the opening reception of the exhibit, San Francisco Graphic Design at the San Francisco Museum of Craft + Design the other week and was thoroughly impressed by the turnout and of course, the work. I got to see the work of 12 of the best design studios in the area, all in one place. I highly recommend visiting if you’re in the area or will be. The show runs until April 26th 2009.

This just in. An intriguing experiment by Tim Belonax where he takes the daily San Francisco Chronicle and everyday for a month, creates a collage using elements of the newspaper. Not only do I love the fact he’s repurposing newspapers, I also thoroughly enjoy the little details added to each description about what section of the newspaper he used and how long it took. And is anyone else in shock that we actually paid over $4.00 a gallon for gas!!! (repeating exclamination points extremely necessary) Holy mole. See his other entries here.
Take a second and put on your plastic black rimmed spectacles and cast your vote for the People’s Design Award from the Cooper-Hewitt. There are some fine folks on there. It’s gonna be close and I know you have an opinion on design so make that contribution so you have the right to bitch and moan. Otherwise, I’ll get you some cheese (most likely gouda) for your whine and say later bro. Speaking of opinions, I have one. Oh and did I mention that National Design Week is October 19-25th? I’m already brainstorming geeked out design activities. uh VOTE! now.
