• Silence is a Rhythm Too is one of my favorite music blogs.

• Have you ever wondered how people live on the other side of the world? In City One Minutes, “life in each city is divided into 24 one minute portraits, each depicting one hour of the day. Every film is a personal impression of the city in which the artist lives or in which he is staying.”

• Vital Tips For Effective Logo Design is extremely comprehensive. Deciding what to charge a client for the process is also covered.

Next to the CD case are two straws and two little black packets. He is so casual he might as well be delivering a sandwich and fries.” (via kottke)

• Furniture never looked so stylish: View an original IKEA catalog, circa 1965.

• For Print Only has just compiled a list of books about getting things printed, knowing what to print them on and how they look when they are printed. What a life saver!
