Our friend Noah at NOMAD snapped this pic of Wally and Janina Gavankar -- there are some big True Blood fans in this office, so naturally we are FREAKING OUT... Turns out she backed the original stick-on Wally on Kickstarter! So rad, so rad, so rad!

Design Inspiration: Raymond Loewy November 11 2013
What does it mean to be a celebrated designer? Is it being on the cover of Time Magazine, designing some of America’s best-loved exports, or is it something as simple as being recognized with a Google Doodle? Raymond Loewy, one of the 20th century’s most prolific and influential designers has now achieved all three, thanks to today’s Google celebration of his 120th birthday. In the same spirit, we’ve compiled a few of Loewy’s most memorable designs for you to peruse on this fifth day of November.

The things we do to ourselves in the morning! October 29 2013
HA! Thanks for this, Buzzfeed. I just read in Inc Magazine, productivity ninja Tim Ferriss suggests a spoonful of almond butter before bed to wake up with more energy. Brb, going to the grocery store… (via buzzfeed: There’s more than one way to wake up.)
We’re not named Distil Union for nothin... October 25 2013
The whole distillation process is fascinating. And then there's moonshiners. Talk about fascinating! Check out the documentary about Popcorn Sutton called "The Last One" to be inspired to just get shit done yo'self. Roll up your sleeves. Find a way. DIY. Nowadays it's less about backwoods and more about craft, and distilleries are popping up all over Charleston: High Wire, Charleston Distilling Co, and the now famous n' dangerous Firefly Original Sweet Tea Vodka.
Also, Nate and Lindsay both have science backgrounds and have legitimately distilled compounds in chem lab. It's all about process, getting down to the essentials. The essence. Simplicity. And that, my friends, is why we named ourselves Distil Union.
Today in the print shop: October 24 2013
Printed our "Essentials Tee" Kickstarter rewards today with a little help from Nate and Luke! Pics and video of the process soon — and available for purchase soon after… Hashtag quotes!
