Quoting @disegnodaily -- An emoji for 2018, courtesy of the wonderful @sebastianbergne, who responded to Disegno’s brief with an emoji that reflects on a societal tendency to act without proper consideration of the likely effects.

Quoting @disegnodaily -- an emoji for 2018, courtesy of the wonderful @sebastianbergne, who responded to disegno’s brief with an emoji that reflects on a societal tendency to act without proper consideration of the likely effects. "in so many aspects of life today we seem to be making mistakes because we take action with too little consideration of the consequences," says bergne. "whether talking about pollution, global warming, electing rogue leaders or brexit this visualisation of the popular idiom 'shooting yourself in the foot' seems likely to be useful in 2018." read the full story on disegnodaily.com #sebastianbergne #emoji #shootingyourselfinthefoot

No matter what Washington does, says, ignores, or destroys, NY, LA, SF, Chicago, Atlanta, Alabama--dozens of states, hundreds of cities, millions of Americans--stand with the world. I wish you a resolute, hopeful, and constructive 2018. (The great beanie is by Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss (2016)).

The @lexusdesignaward jury hard at work and hard at play––left to right, Birgit Lohmann, David Adjaye, Alice Rawsthorn, Shigeru Ban, Yoshihiro Sawa, and yours truly. The theme for the year is CO-, and it got more than 1,400 responses. The first round of selection is done. Now, from our picks, the mentors (Formafantasma, Lindsey Adelman, Sou Fujimoto, and Jessica Walsh) will choose the four projects they will help the designers nurse into prototype stage. They will have them ready for our final judgment in April in Milan! In the following pictures, the jury and the mentors, and a closeup of Andrea and Simone in all their splendor.

My favorite models (mom and dad) in Palazzo Reale in Milano. Scroll to see details of the Sala delle Cariatidi, which was bombed during WWII and left partly in ruin as a reminder. Guernica was once shown there in 1953.
