Today’s graphic designers have a unique challenge facing them. If they’ve done most of their work on a physical medium, eventually they’re going to have to digitize it. But since digital displays use different measurements than what the designer was probably using on paper, moving work over quickly becomes a math problem. The Lindlund ruler aims to make that process easier. In addition to the standard straight edge functions and centimeter and inch measurements, there’s a window with pica and pixel measurements. These allow the designer to take what they’ve created with inches or centimeters and easily convert it to digital terms. The pixel measurements also include tick marks for common digital device screen sizes, meaning you can easily sketch a small rectangle to accurately represent iPhone or iPad screens and design inside them. It comes in two colors, silver and black, to match your other tools and has a rubber backing to make sure your ruler doesn’t slip while taking measurements. Overall, the Lindlund should make working with both digital and physical designs easier to navigate.

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
