Hand-Picked Links — Apr. 1, 2024

Welcome to the first edition of Cotton Bureau’s hand-picked links. We’re pulling some of our favorite internet finds each week to share with you.

Brand New

Fascinating story from Armin Vit on the third major revision of the Brand New identity. New logo, new colors, new typefaces… same bold opinions and trenchant brand critiques.

Logo by Rob Clarke

Emory Goods

Erin Emory painstakingly assembles reclaimed quilted material into one-of-a-kind jackets and apparel. The colors and textures are exquisite.


Kottke.org

A fresh, new coat of paint and some light renovation. Clean and readable, like always. Reimagined for the social media age. (Love the planets.) Bravo, Jason.

Here’s to another presidential administration or two before the next re-design. 🍻

Studio Neat Mark Two

A bulletproof alternative to the classic  Fisher Space Pen. Stunning in all black, perfect with no clip.


XOXO

Everyone’s favorite internet festival is back August 22–24. Hosted by Andy McMillan & Andy Baio in Portland, Oregon, XOXO highlights independent artists and creators across dozens of disciplines including graphic design, board games, creative writing, software development, and more.
