Our design team have added heaps to Good finds this month. We've got beautifully designed puzzles, pin badges, limited edition art-series, inspiration sites and plenty more for your browsing pleasure! On top of that we've also added two new sections; Podcasts and Printed Goods which we will be lovingly curating each month. Ready for a hit of the good stuff? Let's do this.
1) Herb Lest Associates
I first stumbled over Herb Lester's beautiful guides a few years back when I noticed Riley Cran sharing one of his designs over on Dribbble and I immediately fell in love with their unique, beautifully designed little gems.
Herb Lester team up with talented designers from across the globe to collaborate in producing practical, but fun guides and they are definitely ones to watch for future drops.
Who doesn't love cute little badges you can collect and pin around the place! These guys take things one step further with fully customisable enamel pins you can bulk produce for your brand, business, birthday, or anything. On top of that, they also have a curated collection of pre-made designs you can grab of the shelf ready to go.
3) Mejo Object
These stunning puzzles created by Mejo, help people escape from everyday life to enjoy their handcrafted, 100% made in Italy, limited edition products. Every puzzle comes boxed, is numbered by hand and you'll end up with your very own personalised piece of art to show off in your home. If you love a good puzzle and love great design on top of that, then these have got your name written all over them!
4) Flowing page
Ooooh we love a good curated gallery of awesome web designs here at Briefbox HQ. Flowing Page, although relatively new seems to be curating a beautiful collection of various web sites across different industries and themes. We'll definitely be checking back here to see how this gallery progresses.
Part design studio, part book shop and stationery store. What's not to love about these guys. Every single item in their store has been added to their collection with love and passion and if you're a bit bonkers about beautiful stationery and printed goods like we are, then It's definitely worth checking Papersmiths out.
100for10 is a series of art books, of which each issue contains 100 black and white pages. Initiated by Melville Brand Design in Munich, Germany as a self initiated project to make a statement and prove print is definitely not dead!
7) Counter Print Books
Fall back in love with Books again! Counter Print Books collection is undeniably one of the best out there in all of the curated-with-love bookstores that compete with these guys. If you're looking for some books, or printed goods for your home or for a gift, then we highly recommend checking their store out.
🎤 Podcasts added to Good finds
