I’ve recently moved cross country and have been roughing it, but it can be a lot of fun. Parameters and limited supplies can be a great way to challenge you to see the potential in what you’ve got on hand.
And, in fact, a good set of parameters are the impetus that drives truly great design. Giving yourself some unique limitations in addition to a client’s requirements are oftentimes an effective way to get past a creative mental block.
Pictured here we have the solution to my need for a spice rack. I upcycled two wooden clementine crates to hang as spice racks above our oven.

Wall Dogs: The Midair Muralists Who Paint New York
It’s 8am in Soho, the thermometer reads just above freezing, and the sky is bleak. Taxis splash down the streets; New Yorkers stride with their heads down, leaping over puddles, carelessly bumping into each other. Everyone wants to get out of the cold, out of the rain, into the warmth.
Ten stories above — on a long, skinny platform hanging from the facade of a building at Canal and Mercer in downtown Manhattan — it’s a different story. Climbers’ ropes secured around their torsos, Jason Coatney and Armando Balmaceda stand in a melange of open paint cans and brushes. These two muralists of Colossal Media, the largest hand-painted advertising company in America, are heavily layered in sweatshirts and raincoats. But in this industry, c’est la vie. Paintbrushes in their fingerless-gloved hands, earbuds in their ears — “I like to start out with Miles Davis in the morning,” Coatney smiles, his breath visible in the frigid air — they begin yet another workday in the sky.
I’m sorry that I haven’t been updating Tumblr lately. Things have been super hectic, and my schedule will only become more busy in 2013 and 2014. @__@ Thanks for still sticking around and being so supportive. <3
If you want to stay updated, I drop by Facebook and Instagram (@amorningcupofjo) quite often to post photos! Come visit sometime! :D
Warmest wishes to you all. <3 Josephine from A Morning Cup of Jo Creations
Who wants to get their hands on some baby owls???
Cynics be damned! From an oven that turns seawater into drinking water, to a pair of 3-D printed arms that let a toddler hug her mom for the first time, these products made a positive contribution to thousands of lives this year.
A great inspiration for solving a problem with design and becoming an Industrial Engineer.
