Design is Fine

Before we had Adobe, before we had CAD, before we had the cloud or computers, we made things with our hands. Design is Fine is a self professed library of art & design history. Covering design from all time right up to the computer revolution, you'll find an interesting mix of post modernism, art deco, shaker, de stijl and many more beautiful works of art and design.

Booooooom

High impact and out of left field, Booooooom (seven O's) has personality. Featuring work mainly of the weird, unusual, and experimental variety; the blog brings you interesting art and design often with some thoughts or opinions from the author.
