Community-Supported Art (instead of Agriculture). This is an interesting concept featured on the nytimes website today. People often do not know how to go about collecting art. It’s like being overwhelmed by all the book covers in the bookstore and feeling like you have no way of honing in on what it is you want to get because no one gave you a recommendation as of lately. All you know is, reading is important and it’s been your personal resolution to do it more. So, they say you should start collecting art and personalize your space. How about doing that locally with artists who really appreciate your support and make some pretty incredible things. It is a blind C.S.A – you really have no idea what will be in your share when you pick it up – but these artists are dedicating a project with a limited edition of about 50 pieces and it sounds like an awesome concept to be a part of. You’ll be sure to have many conversation starters.

It is only in a few locations now, including my neck of the woods in Brooklyn.

Would you try it?

websites that are #winning

In this day and age, I’m sorry, but if you have a bad website, it reflects that you (1) have poor style (2) are out of date and thus have an out of date product that most of us will look past (3) don’t care enough, and thus this will look poorly for your business…

this is why I will be posting when I find sites that do an AWESOME job.

It makes the whole experience so much better!

First example: and they are a design firm, so they are obviously #winning in this department but I have to share because it is unique, fun, and professional
