Where we’ve been this week:
1. Teuxdeux A beautifully designed way to keep track of your week. This simple to-do list app that’s the result of a collaboration between studio-mates swissmiss and Fictive Kin. There aren’t bells and whistles – but then who needs that distraction when you’re trying to keep track of everything? Where to start? Watch the video.
2. Canadian House & Home The Olympics may be over but that doesn’t mean we have to completely abandon Canada. Canadian House & Home is a super stylish magazine with a content-rich website. Where to start: The home office gallery is full of inspiring spaces.
3. Notcot Founded by Jean Aw in March 2005, Notcot Inc is a blossoming group of design sites that includes NOTCOT.com. The special thing about Notcot is it’s voracious appetite for all things design. Where to start: Go straight to the Home+Decor section.
4. Murketing Written by Rob Walker , the man behind the New York Times’ magazine’s Consumed column, Murketing is a blog that covers the murky world of marketing. Walker says he’s not a traditional design critic, but he sure reads like one. Whatever he is, Walker has authored a really enjoyable, smart blog. Where to start: An interesting post on Gen Y and work.
5. Aisle One It’s always good to find a blog that covers design and is beautifully laid out – designer Antonio Carusone has created one of those rare gems. He’s a senior art director at Ogilvy and a member of the Thinking for a Living network. Where to start: It’s all very lovely to look at but I found myself lingering in the shop. His letterpress calendar is on sale!
