Well Appointed.

March 20th - via: acontinuouslean.com
Occasionally, I can make some absurd generalizations. One of my recent favorites is about Kickstarter and how I will never write about anything I find on there. The reason for this stems from the fact that 99.9% of everything that I have been pitched from the crowdfunding site is utter garbage. Then out of the blue a few weeks ago I received a perfectly executed (and wonderfully refreshing) email from Suann Song about her amazing new paper goods and desktop brand Appointed which launched recently on Kickstarter. Today, thanks to Suann’s creativity and hard work, my sweeping generalization surrounding Kickstarter falls. (Read More)

Support 2K/Denmark's BibleOn via Kickstarter

March 20th - via: bibledesignblog.com

That won’t always be true, however. It’s a new technology, and the focus so far has been much more on convenience than quality. Just look at the way most e-books handle typography. (Read More)
