I’ve been anxiously waiting on this Caselogic “Ag++” case for about two weeks now. Surprisingly when you order from their online store, all orders are fulfilled in Hong Kong so shipping takes longer. I would imagine them having a US presence and shipping be a bit faster (unfortunately not.)
I actually stumbled upon this case by accident looking at various ID work on Behance. (great site for those of you looking for inspiration or to hire) The case is designed by Andrea Ponti check out his Behance here.
The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season as at another. It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness. ~Henry David Thoreau
It used to be each summer a group of friends and I schedule a summer camping trip at the Oregon Coast, generally this lands mid to late August while summer is at it’s best. If you’re an Oregonian you know we are dark, cloudy and rainy about 85% of the year so we take advantage of the good weather when the opportunity is there.
Now the complications of growing up are that people move away, we become busier, we start families, our schedules and lives are based around timely factors.
Driving to work one morning two miles of my commute is graced with vast plains of grass and greenery. With my window down the crisp air brought back nostalgic memories of my used to be yearly camping trip. Late evenings around a campfire; yelling, joking, eating, telling stories, pure joy, fear, excitement … insert emotions. This is natures invitation to bond, to come together, to surround ourselves with loved ones and get lost. At this very moment these memories converted into a design, a design with meaning, something to capture the essence of a campfire.
This is the “LampFire”

This past weekend I checked my spambox because often emails get lost in the spam filter and I fail to reply to emails whom needs immediate response. To my surprise I was hit with an email from a giant beauty/health appliance company inquiring about my design the “Comet” (click here to see comet)
As of right now I’m not sure what to expect, I’m curious as to what the conversation with this gentleman will be about & what it should lead to. Its really exciting and hopefully it’ll lead into an opportunity to have this design produced.
To be continued…
A bit of VERY useful information shared by my coworker this morning it all came as a surprise to me since I had no idea of this kind of detail. So if you already know then good FOR YOU – but if you don’t know the arbitrary lines on the side of the Solo cups aren’t arbitrarily place after all. They are hidden detail that SOLO carefully designed in their cups as measurement lines.
So now you know! CHEERS
Looks like this pick up will be a fun tool to have around the office.

I’ve been learning a bit about making short videos based on all trial and error. Within the last few months I’m investing more time into learning about equipment that can help me capture better videos in which will give me a more dynamic range of shots to edit with. I just found this project on kickstarter and am really interested in having one check em out.
Well we’ve picked one up for the office. This thing is fast and zippy, I”m sure the updated board has better bushings and the barring are a lot smoother then what you bought back in the 70′s but this board is small light and super fun to skate around town in.
They have so many color ways! http://www.pennyskateboards.com/home.html#!prettyPhoto
Being an industrial designer I like to celebrate the products I buy by not covering it up with fancy protective cases.
At work I spend so much time articulating geometry in hopes of creating a sexy, pleasing, awesome design so why cover it up! With my Iphone I never got around to protecting the sucker cause I really like the thinness and the choices of material apple chose for the design.
A few months back I dropped my phone while exiting my car, most of us can relate to this cause I foolishly left my phone on my lap while driving, forgetting it was still on my lap as I left my car I was quickly found out the hard way why everyone’s paranoid about protecting there phone. Luckily it made a tiny, tiny crack on the glass on the lower right side of my phone. Over time I guess the tiny crack gain momentum and shattered. This is the result…
Now that I have a reason for a replacement housing! I decided skip the white or black case since everyone have those! Lets play with something interesting. My initial thought was I really like the translucent iPhones that have been floating around the tech blogs.
Doing a bit more research the transparent case turned out to be quite fragile and easily comes apart. Doing more research I found china has iPhone housing in tons of colors. Chrome, matte even metallic you name it. I settled with RED. check it out.
