design by me

book smart

I love a good coffeeshop and this one really flips me on my head...or side. D'Espresso opened on the lower East side in Manhattan just a few blocks from the NY Public Library. The concept is brilliant. Anurag Nema and his team at nemaworkshop designed the cafe with a nod to its unique location--but with a trippy twist. The owner, Mr. Kagansky, plans to open 10 more in Manhattan and other major cities. “The next one will be completely upside down,” he said.

Nauseating or genius?..I think maybe a little of both. Can't wait to visit.

in love

I finally got my dream bike! A roadster model from my friends down at Linus Bikes on Abbot Kinney. The frame is durable steel, the design in 60's European cinema and the ride is pure leisure. Feels like I'm single-speed'ing on cloud 9.



Love this song by Bon Iver and I think the film by NABIL is a perfect fit. Makes me dream of visiting Iceland. Can't wait to see him live at  the Gibson tomorrow.

Design I did for a t-shirt for Ignatians. I took a pre-existing font and edited it to make it my own. Are my graphic design classes paying off?

Live the Language

EF - Live The Language - Paris from Albin Holmqvist on Vimeo.

I Love this video by art director Gustav Johansson. It is a part of a collection of 4 commercials he did for the EF school of language. The others include Barcelona, London and Beijing. Beautiful cinematography, typography and charming story lines. If these don’t make you want to bust out the frequent flyer miles and polish your second language skills, what will?


I designed this crest for my service orgnaizations 30 year shirt. It has our logo, founding year and slogan.

visual life

"The Satorialist" is a blog started by Scott Schuman in New York City circa 2005. He photographs people on the streets who have dressed in a way that catches his eye and posts them on his site. He pioneered fashion photography in blog form. Since its birth, Scott has expanded to photograph in different locations--often Paris, Milan, London and Florence. In this video, he speaks on his methodology and how he's honed his ability to cater to his 70,000 daily readers. Inspiring stuff.

i want.

I love this backpack by LAYERxlayer. Found it on Supermarket.com
With its cool denim body and twig charm I would think about purchasing it...If I wasn't so keen on coachella tickets.

fort night

I made this fort in my room over break. And have since spent WAY too much time in it.
