I think what I like most about these images is the melted colored wax – but that aside, Lazerian’s Minerals candle holders are very nice, too…They will be launched at 100% design in September.
Sycamore Street Press is an awesome letterpress studio dedicated to “combining fresh designs, sustainable methods, and the vintage charm of letterpress printing”. Eva and Kirk Jorgensen are the printers (and sometimes designers), and they have combined forces with several other designers (Stephanie Ford, Kristin Mills and Amy Shaffer) to create some gorgeous lines of goods. My favorites: the Pop series (above), by Stephanie Ford (letterpressed vintage frames that you mount your own photos onto) and Eva’s own series of prints centered around a man called the Sea Freak.
Sycamore Street Press also has a very nice letterpress-print-of-the-month club, and they release a limited edition, letterpress print by a different artist each month.
Beautiful masking tape made from traditional Japanese “washi” paper. I want some.

I think Kakuzai’s Memo Block is awesome. Post-it notes mimicking a block of wood!
Love Crystal Barlow’s packaging design for Eenie Meenie soaps. Great illustrations for a kid’s product.

Dellekamp Arquitectos sent over their La Capital project – the facade is divided into three parts – a glass base, a patterned screen, and a solid, white band – a gradient of transparency. I kind of wish that the layers weren’t so defined, but I still think it works nicely, and I love what the pattern in the facade does for the interior space.
