Bicycle San Francisco by Dwight Eschliman
"Ever since I got that Bianchi catalog from the local bike shop in 1981 or 1982, I’ve been hooked on the bicycle. I never did get the blue-green Bianchi (decked out in Campagnolo) that I craved, but I did work all summer for a red Trek 400 (decked out in something less). That first Trek eventually collided with a car and I moved on to a series of other bicycles from there. My studio in San Francisco’s SOMA district is situated along a major bicycle commuting corridor. This affords me the opportunity to observe—and document—our evolution into a more bike-friendly city, with many distinct cycling subcultures. One thing that has always fascinated me about the bicycles I see is the way each bicycle reveals its owner’s personality. The hundreds of bikes I see streaming past my studio every day include everything from hipster fixies to pragmatic folding bicycles to durable bike messenger customs. By extension, the way that bicycle culture reflects the larger cultural context is just plain cool.
This is a project that’s just beginning, and it’s as much an anthropological study as a photographic series. Bicycle San Francisco is a visual study of the bicycle, but also a broader look at a compelling place and time in San Francisco right now.”
NASA releases ‘Gravity’-inspired photo set ahead of the Oscars
Just in time for the Academy Awards, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center has released a new photo set inspired by Gravity. The movie makes heavy use of computer-generated imagery, but NASA’s photos show space as it really looks to the astronauts lucky enough to leave the Earth’s orbit. Using photos taken over the last several years, “NASA’s Real-Life Images from Space” showcases astronauts, space shuttles, and some jaw-dropping views of Earth. It should look familiar to viewers of Gravity, which is nominated for the award for best picture tonight.
Büro is a men’s cosmetics range made from natural, sustainable ingredients. Designed to be used on a daily basis and tailored to the individual needs of the consumer.
"We created a new brand name, identity and packaging system that focused on the utility of Büro, removing the prettification and emotion that is more typically found in the branding of cosmetic and fragrance products. The use of unprocessed materials in the packaging helped to communicate the purity of the ingredients, thereby embodying its essence in our brand concept.

(whoa, I am well good at describing my work / not really / actually quite terrible / words frighten me)
Anyway, this job was fun, although it nearly killed me (there was another accompanying illustration but I don’t care for it so it’ll never see the light of day, ever). But yeah - sexy people, in a sexy workplace, working on sexy projects make for a better work environment - you heard it here first folks.
