Sigils of the Houses of Westeros


I’m a total Game of Thrones nerd. After watching the first season last year I couldn’t wait for the second. So I read the entire existing series in six weeks. Obsessed! You can imagine how thrilled I was when I saw this Sigils of the Houses of Westeros poster by Darrin Crescenzi. Crescenzi took the author’s – George R. R. Martin – descriptions of each house’s mark and created beautifully simplistic icons. (He spends his days designing for Nike, can you tell?)


Olympic Mania

Don’t even get me started on that logo, but the 2012 London Olympics kick off Friday and I couldn’t be more excited – I’m such a nerd. I guess it all started back in the Barcelona Games in 1992, when Kim Zmeskal and Shannon Miller (who I later took a college anthropology course with, FYI) faced off in gymnastics. I recorded it on VHS and rewatched the all-around competition over and over again. Like I didn’t know the end result. There’s just something so captivating about people who work so hard and are so incredibly driven towards something that gets me in the gut. Which is why I’ll be absolutely glued to the television for the next two weeks and go into a mild depression after the Closing Ceremony. Wait, is 32 too late to pick up a sport?
