An interview with Apple’s design guru, Sir Jonathan Ive.

Um. Wow.  Starbucks is rolling out some sweet concept stores – like this one in Amsterdam and this one in Fukuoka, Japan.

Seth Godin’s list of books he says are worth reading.

A great work shout out to Granger Community Church on their fantastic and creative use of infographics to cast vision and celebrate stories.

I’ve really been enjoying listening to The Soil & The Sun.  Thanks Ben Arment for the recommendation!

This is interesting…  Choosing the right cover for the New York Times Magazine.

I have no idea who this dude is, but dang….this is really cool.  Jim LePage has done some cool work creating designs for each book of the Bible.  Great work!

I love food trucks.  I’ve gone out of my way to stop and enjoy the food truck scene in Austin, LA, Venice, Portland, NYC, and elsewhere.  Here’s an article from Why We Need Food Trucks In a Recession.  I say bring on the food trucks!  How about it Aurora??

Nice Curves

Loved the article in this month’s WIRED magazine about Bill Zahner and his work designing and creating steel & metal facades for some pretty impressive buildings.  Check it out if you get a chance.

While reading the article, I was reminded of the excellent use of space and creative facade work I saw last week while visiting NewHope Church in LA where my friend Charles Lee serves as Lead Pastor.  Here’s a photo of their space:

They did a great job of taking this small, plain, rectangular space and giving it a fresh, clean feel – which undoubtedly impacts the experience side for those gathering in the space.  Great job NewHope!

Let’s be inspired by the curves!

PS – Gotta watch this time-lapse construction video of Cooper Union.

Kogi Love!

Jul 23, 2010

I’m in LA for the Origins Event happening this Friday and Saturday.  The last few times I’ve been in town I’ve so badly wanted to stop by the infamous Kogi truck but always seemed to run out of time.  Well today Larry and I finally did it.  And man….it was awesome.  Korean BBQ on a taco.  Loved it.
