Studio Crush: Kelly English of Cheeriup

Despite Kelly being my first (and favorite!) Graphic Design instructor, I can confidently say that I am un-biased in my glowing review of her new venture— CHEERIUP, a Minneapolis-based company that makes bespoke “Thickets”!

Kelly wove her first “thicket,” made of naturally collected Minnesota willow branches, for her daughter in their backyard. Luckily for the rest of us, she  recently launched this totally sweet and inventive line of woven habitats for kids, adults, and *gasp* pets alike. I think my kitty Mischka might need a thicket of her very own…

Check out CHEERIUP here and if you’re in the Twin Cities this weekend, you should go see CHEERIUP at the Pretty Mommy pop-up shop at 316 W 48th st, MPLS, MN.

Margot’s Bi-Weekly Design Dispatch, NO. 3
Howdy friends! Margot here again with another installation on all things design!
+ Since my last Dispatch the internet has worked itself into quite the lather over the relative merits of Pinterest. I found myself getting tired of the banter so I supplied my own critique of the site and its accompanying backlash. One of my readers helpfully offered this infographic comparing the users of Pinterest in the UK and the US. Turns out most UK users are wealthy dudes, the opposite of the US (where it’s mostly middle-income ladies using the site). This suggests the potential for a more integrated user base, in all countries, as Pinterest continues to grow.
+ Here are the top 16 TED talks from 2011.
+ Do Good by illustrator and Young Guns winner, Brian Michael Gossett. 
And with that, I can *almost* begin my weekend. See you hip cats on the flipside!
