Jeremiah Weed Whiskey T-Shirt Contest

Jeremiah Weed whiskey is a bourbon-based whiskey that is manufactured in Connecticut. They”re doing a T-Shirt design contest where they invited Writtalin”s Editor in Chief, Ascher, to participate, but due to his lack of creative prowess, I decided to take the reins. After receiving the whiskey variants from Jeremiah Weed, the T-Shirt competition had officially begun. They sent me three variants including their Sarsparilla, casino online Spiced Whiskey, and Cinnamon. Of course in order to let loose the creative juices, drinking is required…. Responsibly? That”s debatable. So as the drinking…err I meanRead More
Wedding season is about to be here! New York Spring Bridal Week has presented some of the most beautiful gowns on the runway. Designers focused on airy, delicate gowns that any bride would swoon over. Sleeves were a main focus along with illusion looks that had tattoo style lace. Vera Wang, Reem Acra, and Monique Lhuiller showed illusion necklines, sleeves, and back details. Monique Lhuiller even presented a mint green tulle ball gown that easily became my favorite. Her inspiration this year was “My Ethereal Daydream.”She drew inspiration from American portraitRead More

User experience design: In defense of the pink line

Introduction The relationship between designers and developers can be tenuous. Designers spend hours on pixel-perfect visuals and crisp micro-interactions, striving to give users power and simplicity at the same time. Designers often cannot see the complexity of what they are asking for, but developers are forced to deal with that complexity; the edge cases that a lovely and idealized image cannot capture. They must deal with situations where a user has found a way to thwart the system, where data is overwhelming and unruly, where that simple design must scaleRead More

5 Things Web Designers Can Learn from a Tree

Designing the internet The internet is important. People love it. But it takes work to make the internet. There’s a lot of stuff going on under the hood. And working under that hood are the mechanics. The mechanics of the internet. They come in many forms: engineers, project managers, the designer. All working together to deliver the internet. Of course, if you’ve ever worked in an office, you know people enjoy bad metaphors for simple concepts. These metaphors might be used with evil intentions, to disguise a bad idea. OrRead More
Earlier this year, I wrote about the up and coming trends of 2014. As a much-anticipated spring emerges, I want to go more in-depth about the trends that you will see in women’s clothing this season. Each designer will produce their own version of the trend, but ultimately the overall concept will be the same. One fabrication that will be prevalent in the spring season will be sheer layers. These layers will be constructed of silks and organzas. Other universally used fabrications will be shiny metallics and translucent designs. TheseRead More
For those of you who do not know, Paris Fashion Week happened recently. For most American men, this kind of information is not even on the radar (especially with the hype leading up to today’s Super Bowl). Lucky for all you males, I have the style highlights. In menswear, it is hard to completely re-design what has already been made. However, this year I have been pleasantly surprised. If you ever wonder how to dress, you should take notes from Thom Browne, Hermès, Ami, Saint Laurent, and their Fall 2014Read More
As the New Year starts, many people are thinking about putting their best foot forward to find a new job or re-vamp their business attire. Business attire does not usually change often. Nevertheless, it can be used to differentiate between conservative, business casual, and in some places casual wear. Overall, it is only fitting that dress codes directly relate to the type of profession one has. For example, the banking industry seeks to have their associates dress ultra conservatively — or in other words “play it safe.” After all, youRead More

2013 in Men’s Fashion

As the New Year begins, it is only fitting to look back at the trends that were most popular in 2013 in womenswear and menswear. Each year, there is a resurgence of a trend that has happened in the past. Fashion is cyclical and although the main concepts do not change- how it inspires different designers does. Runway fashion will, of course, always be an extreme style due to showmanship. The runway gets translated into everyday concepts and pieces that can be worn by the public. The exception is hauteRead More
