The Great Big Lesson Retailers Can Learn From Museums

In a few months in Philadelphia, a new Warby Parker store will open in a space formerly occupied by the Le Bec-Fin. This restaurant, led by Chef Georges Perrier, was once widely considered one of the best in the world, but it famously refused to change with the times—and paid the price.

CEO Update Q2 2016: Going From Strength to Strength

It's the day after conference and there is a steady flow of people from the taxi stand outside the Westin Seattle. We're all heading home. Some look a little worn out, but it does not appear that we took any casualties, despite some really good stories. Way to throw a family party, SEGD clan!

And of course while there is always room for improvement (we're designers after all!), we heard mostly very positive feedback about this event. Everything from best ever to can we do it in Seattle every year?

Eduardo Kobra is attempting to set the world record for the largest mural created by a single person. Coinciding with Rio’s 2016 olympic games, the Brazilian street artist has painted a mural on a vast 190-meter-long wall in the city’s formerly run-down port area. Measuring an area of almost 3,000 square meters, the work illustrates five faces from five continents — a theme which responds to the olympic rings.

Roadliners is a film about inspiration and craft, and the uncelebrated lettering artists of the road.
