ANZ Centre, Australia

Been on a bit of an architecture and interiors kick lately. Love all of the rooms and the overall idea of this place.

A Graphic Odyssey

Wish I lived in London so I could go to this. The Design Museum is celebrating the prolific career of the Dutch graphic designer Wim Crouwel in his first UK retrospective. Also, some amazing posters, by some of my favorite studios, over at the Design Museum shop. Now to decide which one to buy...

Mercury Tainted Salmon Steaks

We Recco Recco

Formed by creatives Peter Cortez, Joe Sayaman and Jason Culbertson, Recco is an iPhone app in the same vein as Yelp or Menu Pages, but more community oriented and friendly. This way, instead of reading how Joe Smith from Ontario can flex his writing muscles about a bar in Brooklyn he's been to once on a monday, you can take your actual friends word for it and read their reviews, or take their advice from the simple "Recco" or "Meh" button. You can also ask for Recco's via Facebook or Twitter, and follow what your friends have been Recco-ing from their profiles. It launched pretty recently so there's not so many users as of yet, but it's well designed and it always feels good to support other peoples endeavors.
Some screenshots:

Download it here and look me up. I'm all alone in this as of now :(

Behind The Scenes At Hort

I love looking at people's work spaces and studios. This one is a good one. Love the sign above the printer, I'm sure we've all been there at one point or another. In fact, I'm probably overdue for a good old fashioned war with mine.

Try and translate this article about Hort, and then visit the Hort website.

Eric got the Photo of the Day on Fecal Face! Miss you pal. Check out more photos from his recent excursion at the Crypt Trip. Some exquisite ones in there. And speaking of Eric, we did a Smolder/Gold Mold(eric) split last summer. Download it here. Good stuff, we promise.
