So much Star Wars Christmas awesomeness! First, Gawker posted this hilarious “Star Wars Christmas Special” video yesterday. Inspired by the video, I did a little digging, and was completely blown away by the existence of Christmas In The Stars: Star Wars Christmas Album.

gorgeous and creepy literary perfume bottles

On 01, Dec 2010 | In Design, Selected Posts | By sue

This collection of men’s fragrance bottles by Ah&Oh Studio is both disturbing and beautiful. The designers, inspired by iconic authors and their works, “tried to describe the dark sides of men’s nature.” I love the fluid look of the bottles—so tactile! They were designed to evoke old glass perfume bottles and inkwells.

1950s christmas cards from the walt disney studios

On 01, Dec 2010 | In Art, Design, History, Selected Posts, TV & Film | By sue

These Christmas cards sent by The Walt Disney Studios in the 50s were collected by Disney animator Claire Weeks, and now they’re being featured at the Hollywood Animation Archive. I love how lively the drawings are! I think the Never Never Land calendar might be my favorite.

Another great part of visiting Kyoto: finding cute and beautiful handicrafts just about everywhere. Paper products, ceramics, and especially textiles – I wanted to buy everything (and now I’m inspired to get crafty when I go back home).

seoul design fair, part 1

On 15, Oct 2010 | In Design, Selected Posts, Travel & Life | By sue

The Seoul Design Fair was part of why I decided to visit Seoul—Seoul is the World Design Capital for 2010, so the fair is a pretty big deal. I was disappointed by the main pavilions—of course there were some interesting displays, but overall the exhibits were poorly organized and a bit haphazard. There was a lot of really great design to discover in the other parts of the fair, though—design industry exhibitions, the Seoul Design Market, and the student exhibitions.
