Selfie Nation

Over the centuries, the self-portrait has lived in the world as a clear portrayal of self-expression. From Frida Kahlo, who painted endless portraits of herself, to Chuck Close, who used photography of his visage, to now Kim Kardashian, who has published a rather large photo book of only Selfies— people have created their own narratives and sense-of-self through this form of visual representation. Even cave men drew pictures on their walls of themselves in action, expressing their daily life.

Design Inspiration : Jean-Michel Basquiat

all_colored_cast_1982

Jean-Michel Basquiat is arguably one of the most influential artists of the Neo-Expressionist art movement of the 1970s and 1980s, and certainly one of the most significant artists of his generation. Known for his loose and rough graphic style of painting, Basquiat went from an obscure New York City graffiti artist to art superstar almost overnight. He’s a personal favorite of mine and the following is a brief overview of his life and career.

Saving an image on a specific photo album seemed like a fairly easy task… IT WASN’T! After digging in Stackoverflow and Apple Documentation I finally was able to do it, so I thought I’d share with how it’s done! Or at least how I did it. ;)

Los Angeles Design Festival

la_designfestival_cover

Los Angeles is well known for diversity, whether that be racial, cultural, or in the workforce–more specifically, the creative industry. Think Disney, Dreamworks, Paramount, Universal — LA is a hub for creativity. Aside from larger corporations, there is a significant amount of smaller design studios, firms, ad agencies, and creative companies that make up LA’s rich art, culture, and creative scene.

LA Design Festival is a collaborative citywide convention, where  design-related events (that can be product design, architecture, graphic design, etc.) take place and are hosted by  design/creative firms and open to the public (for some events, ticket purchases/RSVP are required). This year, there are studio tours and open houses, house tours (McKinley House, Venice House, etc.), pop-ups, and more! The LA Design Festival takes place from May 28th until June 14. To check out the events schedule, visit:

Mothers Day

This Sunday is Mothers Day, and every year, it seems we’re scrambling to the last minute to find a great way to spend time with our mothers, or figuring out what to give our mothers, to make them smile and to let them know we love and appreciate everything they have done throughout our lives. Though most Mothers Day blog posts are about gift ideas or places to eat with our moms, I thought of a different way to appreciate our moms — I’ve asked the team here at O&O to share photos of their moms below.
