Pilot Razor Points

August 26, 2008

Some of my favorite pens to draw with are Pilot Razor Points. They’ve been around for a long time and put down a great black line. For some reason they’re hard to find…usually only in a box of 12. What adds to their greatness is the packaging the come in. Sometimes they’ll come in a clear plastic box, but when lucky you can find them in a light blue, black and yellow box. It looks as if this packaging hasn’t changed in 25 years! It’s wonderful!

Check out this fun table from Crate and Barrel! I’d love to own this, but uh…$900…not going to happen. Maybe I’ll make my own.

Andrea Pininfarina

Andrea Pininfarina

As an industrial designer, though not in the automotive industry, I have a great appreciation and respect for automotive design. I read that early this morningĀ  Andrea Pininfarina, CEO of Pininfarina, world famous company that designs Ferraris, Fiats and the Ford Focus, died this morning near Turin, Italy in a traffic adccident. It’s reported that he was riding a Vespa Scooter and was hit by a car. He leaves behind a wife and three children.

The 4th installment of the best logo design books around

I was hoping Gestalten would continue publishing their brilliant logo design books as they have done in the past. About every two years they come out with another great book. Los Logos 4 will be available September 2008. I can’t wait to add this to the other three on my shelf! Go pre-order yours!
