Have you listened to Design Matters with Debbie Millman? It’s one of my favorite podcasts! This one with Jonathan Adler is so refreshing to hear a design type first admit that he was glad he didn’t go into higher ed Fine Art, describing it as stifling. While it is very beneficial to some, it’s not for everyone and it’s always nice to hear that maybe you don’t need to spend 80+ on an MFA. His relationship with his husband is maybe the cutest thing I’ve heard all week and his outlook on life is anti-snobbish and very unapologetic.
Are you in San Francisco right NOW? If you are, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go see the Color Factory for me. They’re sold out of August dates, but September dates are now on sale! A group of artists created the “factory” with the intent that it be experiential, sharable on social media, and conceptual.
I made this last night and I KNOW it’s not super “design” related but it’s still fantastic and one of my favorite treats ever. Matcha Banana Cocoa “Ice Cream”. All you have to do is freeze some banana slices, toss ’em in a blender with cocoa powder (and a little matcha if you need a caffeine kick) and pulse till smooth. It’s super delicious and not to bad for your health either!
Have you heard of ZenBunni Chocolate? Their chocolate is delicious but even better- their packaging is so fanciful. The “full moon” chocolate boxes are very expensive, but it comes with a little chocolate “ghneeache” and I’m dying to try it… Let me know if you do and what you think!
