A weekly newsletter with designy things
🤓 The Noah Kalina Newsletter
Through David Friedman’s (excellent) newsletter, I discovered another excellent newsletter. Noah Kaline, a photopgrapher who took a selfie every day — for 20 (!) years, writes about his rooster Marcel, Peaches, Post Offices and Dahlias. All over the place, yes, and fun and interesting to read!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to read the complete archive now. 📚
And he has an interview on TGD too.
🎧 All Consuming
Noah also has a brand new podcast together with Adam Lisagor. Every week they try a new direct-to-consumer product, review it, unpack it and explore its space in our lives and its place in our culture.
Here’s the trailer. For the podcast. 😅
Plant-based “Chicken” Nuggets. NUGGS utilize an advanced soy protein technology that enables a hyper-realistic simulation of the texture and flavor of an animal-based nugget. And I love their branding, not the standard green/vegan look, but (like Noah wrote) MoMA meets McDonalds.
I sure hope this becomes available in NL soon. View-source for a funny discount 😏

📱 New Camera, who dis?
Of course you’ve seen the new iPhone, but if you want to learn more about the cameras you should watch Tyler Stalman’s video below – or read SDW’s blog here. That Pacific Blue sure looks nice… 😛

🗺 Vintage Relief Maps
Sean Conway just opened his store with vintage maps, enhanced with modern Digital Elevation Data to give a surreal 3D effect. You can even choose with or without clouds! Fascinating and lovely to look at. And many other prints and maps on that site too! 👀

And if you’re looking to name your startup/idea, Ben offers a Name Sprint too. 🙌
(and it seems Predesign by Oblik is basicly the same concept, hmmm 🤔)
Brands take time. They’re grown, not launched.
😔 R.I.P. Ed Benguiat
Ed Benguiat (pronounced Ben-gat) was a lettering artist and typeface designer. He died yesterday at 92 years old. You may never have heard of him, but you’ve seen his work. Read Riley Cran’s thread for some examples and a nice anecdote. 💜
See you next week!
