It's a Feature...

In an age where an increasingly vast array of interaction patterns are available to designers & developers we can't help but admire the restrained palette in use on stylist and designer Allegra Colletti's site. Transitions are punchy and utilitarian with some beautifully thought out visual details.

— Hover States

Very surprised and pleased to learn that my personal portfolio site has been featured on Hover States, a popular blog curated by Hover Studio, London, featuring new and interesting interaction design. Many thanks to Ken and Yoonjai at COMMON NAME for making me look good!

The One That Got Away...

Mermaid Bag by Fendi

I've never seen this bag in person. I don't even know if it ever went into production but the image of this has haunted my dreams for years. It is made of laser cut skins and is just what I imagine a mermaid's tail would be like, hence the fact that it has come to be known as the Mermaid Bag in my lexicon. I hope someday to come across it in my wanderings and capture it for myself.

Question: What is Punk?

Photo by Mario Testino

The spirit of punk lies in not ingratiating oneself to preordained values nor accepting standard authority.
