Laid-back lunch today in our wild backyard patio July 23 2014



...complete with a soundtrack of church-bells and cicadas. Doesn’t look like King St, does it!?


Reading about design July 22 2014

We're both stoked to get our hands on the August issue of Entrepreneur, featuring an interview with Yves Béhar. Products by his design studio Fuseproject have made their way onto many of our moodboards – you may recognize the Puma Clever Little Bag


...and the Jawbone Jambox (we have the red one, of course)

Check Amy Cosper's Editor's Note
"We, as humans and entrepreneurial spirits, are inspired by beautiful design even when we are unaware that we are being inspired. Whether created by nature or by the hands of Homo sapiens, beautiful objects elicit a certain something -- a deep breath, a fleeting moment of pleasure. It's a serenity that can and often does lead to a minute or two of contemplation and perhaps a burst of creativity. And all of that leads to the force that drives entrepreneurial endeavors: innovation. In this issue we celebrate design -- everything from the cool items that add beauty and make your life easier to today's fashion-forward (and business-forward) offices."

Chills. Design, we celebrate you!

It’s the weekend!! July 18 2014

Why are there so many wallets on Kickstarter? June 24 2014

If you've ever wondered why there's so many dang wallets on Kickstarter, Nitsuh Abebe does a beautiful job exploring the many reasons in this article -- and you bet we woulda chimed in if they'd asked us about Wally!

Having designed Apple-centric products for the past 7 years, Wally Bifold was the first step outside of our familiar comfort zone. The iPhone-compatible Wallys were pleasing folks left and right, so why not make a version that can stand alone?! After all, minimizing what you carry every day is a desire that extends far beyond just iPhone fans. And not to mention the appeal of creating a product that doesn't require an update every year or two... So designing the simplest wallet possible that employs pull-tab functionality was a natural evolution for Wally -- and for Distil Union.

What a view (at White Point Garden, aka the park along The Battery). Update: It's not legal to hang your hammock between two city-own trees in Charleston public parks. Just so you know. Boo.
