A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

ARCHITONIC: Architecture and Design Source

ARCHITONIC is an excellent resource for so many things. Especially if you’re an architect, but also if you have any interest in furnishings, graphic designers, auction houses, furnishing suppliers, materials and much more. It’s an outstanding site for research, and they provide a catalog request option for a direct link to manufacturer catalogs. Very cool. Architonic’s goal is: the best products, materials, designs and concepts for the best in architecture - always up to date, impartial, selective. The result: more than 40,000 products from 4,000 designers and 1,000 manufacturers.

These are both great! Say, have you ever encountered anything about architecture for kids (less from a construction point of view, more from an artistic/functional view)? Duncan is super interested in this (loves the airport). Think I need to start taking him on field trips -- but, I'm a novice, too!
