Design studio 1910, following their Readable Wikipedia concept, have whipped up a quick email design that looks tons better than any email client I’ve ever used. Makes one wonder why email still looks ’95 when it’s ’14 already.

I could try and write a description of what this guy is doing, but it’s just too awesome and you should do yourself a favor and read the whole story on Medium, then go and marvel at the rest of his work on his website.
Greg Storey over at Cognition:
The pursuit of perfection must be countered by the very practical need to move forward. Our world seems to be spinning faster and faster, leaving less and less time to fret over every detail. “Make, do” doesn’t give any of us license to create crap. The quality still needs to be there but within reason, within the context of priorities.
Definitely a goal this year (and in the future) to try to obsess and worry less and get more stuff done and out the door.

“12 O’Clock Boys” is a documentary on the notorious West Baltimore dirt-bike gang by the same name. It follows 13-year-old knucklehead Pug for three years as he dreams of joining the ranks of the wheelie-popping, cop-evading daredevils. Sort of “The Wire” with wheelies.
Jon Geeting's photos of snowy Philadelphia very clearly illustrate where to reclaim some of the street space for the public by showing where cars actually don't drive or drive very little.

Jacob Escobedo on The Great Discontent:
He had me work on the book, which was full of photographs by David Lynch, who is a big icon for me. I recall getting a hard drive of David’s photographs and I was so excited that I couldn’t contain myself. I was trying to nail the cover for the album, but I wasn’t getting a response from anybody. When I finally did get an email, it was from David Lynch; it simply said, in all caps: “TRY HARDER.” I was so upset that I stayed up all night working until I came up with something that everyone liked. I’ll never forget getting that message from David and thinking, “Wow, this is like getting an email from God.”
