Underconsideration is a forum and network of four different blogs all based on different specific aspects of design. I gave them a shout in my last post regarding the Pepsi re-branding which I located at BRAND NEW, a blog designated for finding and revealing new re-brands and corporate identity restructuring. Bryony Gomez-Palacio & Armin Vit created underconsideration in 2001 and have included SPEAK UP, a forum for design discussion prodded by stimulating and always interesting openings that stem a broad range of responses (us designers as a whole are intellectually advanced when it comes to making a point, why is that?), QUIPSOLOGIES is a blog entirely dedicated to sharing things that are in my opinion just plain fun. Last but certainly not least THE DESIGN ENCYCLOPEDIA is “A growing, collaborative resource that describes, tracks and explains culture, commerce, politics, media, sports, brands – everything possible, really – through design.” (I could have tried to explain it in my own words but theirs are so exact and eloquent). Start clicking, get lost for hours. I literally was up half the night just looking through all of the cool quipsologies tidbits and I plan on trying the coat hanger book holder.

I Work for Who?

October 24, 2008

The brain child of Michael Cina & Michael Young, YOUWORKFORTHEM is an online store based out of Minneapolis, MN that is tailored to designers and all things design. A fun mixture of design elements, books, shirts and information YouWorkForThem is a designer’s dream store. Aesthetically pleasing and simplistically beautiful, the site entices you to poke around and explore. Their BLOG is exceptional and always very interesting both visually and intellectually. Thanks to the ILOVETYPOGROPHY.COM blog for the Sunday Type post that got me interested.
