DWC @ LDF
We're gearing up for a week of design in a collaboration with the London Design Festival. Watch this space to find out more!
Signed, Sealed and Delivered
Well, it's official. The Final Major Projects are in, and now we don't know what to do with ourselves. We're happy to sleep a bit more and stress a tiny bit less. Mostly, we're glad the London summer was virtually non-existent — August's rainy days were good for our own productivity! Check-in soon to find out what's been filling our heads for the past few months. We're excited!
Across the Pond
Our dear friend/fellow colleague Kate is back in Canada, and while we were sad to see her go, we're having fun catching up with her adventures back home. On her blog, she writes about our faves of course (food and design), and in this recent post she catches up with friends she made last year whilst designing and constructing a new backyard garden at the Guelph Women's Shelter. What a great project.
Things we love: Emily's website
We're loving the Work gallery, which includes a couple photos (below) of Emily's take on an alternative research project we did earlier this year. Aw, we love spontaneous trips down Memory Lane, and seeing the work of our cohort!
Alex on Eye Part 2!?
Waxing poetic: Sandwiches
Over at the lovely and hilarious blog Gagging Towards Bethlehem, Sarah Handelman writes about her own canon of sandwichery. But don't worry: If you're not into reading about sandwiches, you can just look at all the pretty pictures, which were the result of a collaboration between Sarah and designer/illustrator Tom Loughlin.
DWC on Design Bureau
Hey, we're on a blog! Check us out on Design Bureau's Dialogue blog, where we talk (among other things) about why you should care about design writing criticism.
Alex on Eye!
One of our own has a little byline on a little blog. Well, not just any little blog. Alex Cameron's post is up on Eye Magazine, and we couldn't be happier for him. Check out his piece on the Olympic posters — the posters' artists are well represented, but Alex asks, where are the graphic designers?
DWC In Conversation
In July, we were lucky enough to host a great evening with some fascinating guests. We were joined by the bright minds behind Love Da Pop and designer, author, artist, cook, traveler and general everything-doer Jake Tilson. With a great crowd and lots to talk about, we jumped straight into a discussion on making, creating, eating, and of course, design. Thanks to all who came out, and many thanks to our guests!
Open Evening: June 8th 2011

Krisztina wrote an article called Library Update for ME. The cover page story in the official magazine of Hungarian architects places the new regional library, the key building of Pécs2010 European Capital of Culture in a larger context.
Less Common More Sense
Krisztina recently participated in Contemporary Architecture in Pannonhalma, an exhibition curated by architect Tamás Nagy. In the cellars of the thousand year old Archabbey 5 films present new buildings commissioned by the Benedictines during the last decade. The films outline the key architects and their ideas about their projects. John Pawson is the chief architect of the reconstruction of the main basilica; the interview was made in his London studio February 2011.
