    Tequila Gives Art a Shot

    Tequila Gives Art a Shot
    A slug of tequila has always offered a certain measure of support to artists toiling in obscurity. However, that point has rarely been made as literally as by Proximo Spirits, which has been giving emerging artists a platform through the Essential Artists editions series for its best-selling 1800 Tequila. The 1800 bottle’s design has always been functional — the stopper doubles ...

    Obsessive-Compulsive Design Disorder

    Obsessive-Compulsive Design Disorder
    Austin, TX - For two days in February my time was filled with inspiring talks about design, technology, and so-named “cool shit” at the FITC conference in Amsterdam.

    Design Miami: Small Is Good
    Miami, FL—Even the constant background noise of jets flying over the Design District didn’t spoil the buoyant atmosphere in Design Miami's sleek temporary tent structure last week. This petite venue, housing just 14 international design galleries in its fifth year (down from 23 last year), was tiny compared to the newly expanded, behemoth Art Basel Miami Beach fair, but it packs ...

    Color Field Artist, Kenneth Noland

    Color Field Artist, Kenneth Noland
    The great Color Field (and in my opinion, one of the most underrated colorists of the 20th century) artist Kenneth Noland died a few weeks ago. I was always a fan of his work as well as the other seminal Color Field painters like Jules Olitsky, Helen Frankenthaler, Barnett Newman and Morris Louis. I always liked the sort of “impersonalness” of ...

    Images Speak: History of Emoticons
    I used to be anti-emoticon. For years, I thought of smiley faces as the mark of an immature writer—the kind who punctuates a sentence with seven exclamation points. Then one day, after years of reading them, I was composing a sentence I wanted to make very sure the reader knew was a joke—and so I did it. Slowly, those little guys ...
