Life Outside of Work
Blue Q, Baby
I got to know Mitch Nash casually through teaching at SVA, where he does an annual show and tell for the MFA Design students. We've done a few projects together now, and left to me, I could spend entire weeks working on his ridiculously fun merchandise with just a few pauses for bathroom breaks. Blue Q has commissioned designers like Louise Fili and Haley Johnson to do bags, soaps and all kinds of seriously groovy stuff, and if you spend a little time perusing their website, http://www.blueq.com, you'll want to do all your holiday shopping there.
Every little detail is considered and is every word tailored for maximum cleverness. Mitch is a man of many ideas and even more faxes, and clearly someone who makes time for fun every day. Blue Q products appeal to designers because, well, they're just so good looking, and silly. Check it out:
