While linear architecture is always a welcome sight, there’s nothing quite like color blocked architecture. This music and art school by MADE arhitekti makes students want to hang out all day, and more importantly, it inspires them.

If you could review a product solely based on its packaging, this line of bath and body products from Compagnie de Provence is outstanding!

Pop Chart Lab

Whether you’re a kid or not, this new poster design from Pop Chart Lab is super fun… All of the animal prints are actual size!
