what's a brewin'
just wanted to give a little update on projects launching at d*s this winter. the shop has had me swamped like a crazy woman so i'm trying to catch up and launch the int'l design project asap (look for it in early december). i'm finalizing the letterpress guide (due to launch in mid november) and i'm gearing up for the holiday guide (arranged by price like last year) with a little help from our beloved mav (who'll tackle affordable art). we'll launch that guide around thanksgiving so you'll have plenty of time to order. and of course, we'll have a fresh crop of d*s shop goods on december 1.
but the most exciting of all is a brand new project that will be announced early in the new year. i have a few more goals to accomplish with this site before it comes to a close one day and one of them is to really bring student and emerging designers to the forefront. so stay tuned for quite possibly my favorite project on d*s ever. it's all about giving back and planning for the future.
last but not least, an update for the international design project: i'm buried in amazing entries but as it comes together it looks like we've still got holes to fill. if you want to join up and live in one of these areas just shoot me an email: india, russia, japan, china, england, france, spain, scandinavia and the middle east. so far the entries from south africa have been blowing my mind. i've definitely added capetown to my list of must-visit design cities. thanks to everyone who's entered so far!
