grid-books

Sometimes the names of things don’t really describe them at all – take sweetbreads for example.  Then there are times when the name of a product is almost perfectly descriptive – The Shake Weight, Home Goods and Painters Tape come to mind.  Gridbooks would fall in the latter category.  While the Gridbooks Ad Book is simply a book of grids, it is much better than it sounds on paper (unlike sweetbreads).  Perfect for web designers, the Ad Book’s 15-point dot grid breaks down into four, five or six columns.  While you’re designing away you can keep track of your action items and other important notes on the lined sheets opposite the grids.  The Ad Book even comes with storyboard outlines for three standard ad units.  We could picture Don Draper roaming the halls of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce with one tucked under his non-whiskey holding arm even if he did lack a PC.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
