the mark mothersbaugh home collection

frankly i think it is weird to say that devo frontman mark mothersbaugh has a home collection, but it is pretty clear that his avant musical talents are tantamount to his artistic skills. check out this sampling of graphic ceramic accessories, bold wallpaper and stylish rugs he’s made for his company walteria living.

from here it looks pretty edgy, urban and sometimes disturbing, but still very livable.

see the complete collection at walteria. learn more about mark’s music at his website.

okayk eye chart notecards (clever)

I love these little notecards and larger sized prints from Chicago artist ohkayk. They sprung from a moment while in the optometrist’s office. I just think they are so fresh, clean and clever.

noa bembibre 2009 calendar

Hurrah, hurray and hurry — Noa’s back!

Many may duplicate, but I accept no imitations of the clever typographical style of Helsinki-based graphic designer Noa Bembibre. I think these calendars are truly special and if you do too then you might want to preorder now. Shipping of the 500 limited edition pieces begins on November 5th, 2008.

Big fan here.

Purchase the €32 calendar (about US $25 and an awesome holiday gift for your most visual/designy friends), and see more of Noa’s work on her website. You can also buy the calendar online at the Curiosity Shoppe,  Present and Correct, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum shop and MOCA LA.


asg letterpress print by andrea everman

As you may or may not remember, I love artwork with graphic style. Give me something inventive, beautiful or clever looking with some cool words on it and I will totally put it in my house. It looks like I’ll be giving my credit card a workout today, now that I’ve taken a look at the latest Art School Girl (ASG) letterpress print available in the monthly series. It’s called Comfort and it was designed by Andrea Everman, the creative genius behind those adorable shadow puppets that I know you all have seen, right?

I like the geometry of powerlines.

Here are a few puppets, just in case I made the wrong assumption up there in the first paragraph:

I don’t have personal call for the puppets right now, but they haunt my dreams. This print will definitely stave off my desire to own them, at least for now. I think.

Purchase the limited edition print at Art School Girl, and see more of Andrea’s mastery of puppetry (ooh I like that!) at her Etsy shop and her website.

zeitgeist clocks by mylumi

look at these abstract graphic zeitgeist clocks from the creative duo of kerstin nill and sebastian pehl, aka mylumi. designed in an old fashioned flip style, these clocks present a bold new image every minute of the day — literally. there are 1440 different combinations. kerstin and sebastian describe this distinct styling they call typology as “avant-garde and visionary.”
