Joe Doucet is a young American designer whose work spans multiple disciplines. His Cajun roots are a driving force in his body of work, encompassing furniture design, product design, interior design and architectural services (residential and commercial), photography, packaging, brand identity and more. Whether it is creating a toy for Kid Robot, holding a patent for a new means of shaving cream delivery, fashioning an alluring perfume bottle, building a luxurious table that is shipped in a flat pack in a way that creates less waste in the world, or finding a way to tackle urban revitalization and job creation through design, these are all defining aspects of Joe’s efforts. Recently, Joe Doucet Studio has announced the formation of “private label” designs, which will be manufactured to the highest standards in Germany. Whyte Label is high-end, made to order, often from rare materials and in limited numbers available through the Studio’s website, as well as select retailers around the world. The first of the Whyte Label pieces has already made its debut, The Screwtop Table, a flat-pack piece that takes the idea of self-assembly and elevates it to a fetish!

In the realm of world design, Joe continues to create across all platforms in a way that is equal parts avant-garde, practical and transformational. He lives in New York, though he travels extensively.

Here are five websites that Joe currently enjoys:

1. Particular Particules
A highly curated, visual only site created by Maria Horn with a wide range of content. A daily visit is highly recommended.

2. My Sky Status
A site which let’s you automatically update all you social networks when you take off, are in the air and land. The best part, it woks on any airline and any flight in the world.

3. Silva/Bradshaw
Get to know this design duo now so you can have bragging rights that “you knew them when…”

If you haven’t joined you are really missing out on some great offerings. Think of it as a Gilt Home with very hard to find brands.

5. Advice to Writers
Don’t let the title fool you. It is filled with astute and concise advice from some of the most productive creatives who has ever lived. Substitute “writing” for you chosen profession and blossom.
