Snapbacks Are Where It’s At

Katin K Man Patch Snapback Hat

I’ve never been much of a hat girl, though I have plenty of aspirations. Last year I finally began to embrace cool weather loving wide brimmed hats so who knows, maybe snapbacks are next? Of course this style has been around for ages in sports, but lately I’m noticing more and more designs with a nod towards fashion.

Lorraine Nam

Lorraine Nam-2-Design Crush


Lorraine Nam is a paper illustrator out of Brooklyn who works with flat sheets of paper to create miniature 3D paper objects. The end result is usually a photograph or animation, so she likes to think of each creation as a prop. Lorraine also cuts into single pieces of paper to create one large image for massive impact.

Michelle Fader

Michelle Fader-1-Design Crush


I’m over here today crushing on the photography of Michelle Fader, some of which is based on exaggerated memories from her own life or stories that have been told to her. The hazy edges and realness of every shot makes them so familiar you might start to wonder if they’re moments from your own life instead.

Sigrid Calon Memory Game

Sigrid Calon Memory Game-1-Design Crush


I grew up as an only child activities that I could do on my own were kind of a staple, and memory games were one of those things for sure. I’ve added this grownup, graphic take on the classic featuring fluorescent, Risograph print-inspired patterns by Sigrid Calon to my game collection at home. The cube holds 52 paired cards and works as a design-savvy gift, mental challenge, and beautiful art object.

Daniel Entonado

Daniel Entonado-1-Design Crush


Madrid-based Daniel Entonado is a painter, yes. But he’s also a painter who deconstructs some of his pieces and puts them back together as collages! The result is brilliantly beautiful and inventive.
