Is anyone else out there terrible at dressing for the transition of seasons? If so, I hope this spring jacket roundup helps. Here's to blue skies and light layers, people.

Papa's in the swing

The Essentials Project, an endeavor by creative director and designer Daniel Eckler, explores the contents of the bags of 100 different global creatives. I love that each visual vignette provides a glimpse into each owner, allowing you to piece together who the person is and, at the very least, appreciate the unique ways that each of the 100 participants tackle the same project.

See more of the series here.

This must be the place

Oh, man! I love this tour of San Fran-based photographer Jesse Leake's home. As Apartment Therapy points out it's pretty much the anthesis of the proverbial bachlor pad--it's light, airy, well-appointed, and the perfect balance of old and new. Click here for more.

Well that escalated quickly

I stepped away from this space for a bit, mainly due to the fact that I was both incredibly busy and terribly uninspired, but I've returned, if only to show off the work of French illustrator Xavier Casalta. Those swooping letters! Those lovely gradients! I've never seen penmanship look this good. Head here to see more typographical work by the artist.
