Let the sun shine!

All Three productsThe Environmental Working Group just came out with their Sunscreen Guide for 2012 and I was happy to see that my new favorite sun screen was included with flying colors.

I live in Santa Monica where it is nice and sunny all year round, if the fog burns off.  I am very fair and have sensitive skin,  as does my daughter. We both wear sunscreen every day (I sometimes show my age and tell her that we need to put on our “sun tan lotion!”) I like to use the more “natural” stuff, so I am always on the look out for Chemical free broad spectrum sunscreen.

And the Envelope, Please…Mohawk 11 Show Awards

As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of the things we strive for here at Paper Culture is fresh, clean modern design. So when our creative director wins a Mohawk Show 11 Award, I feel it’s worth sharing – and celebrating!

The Mohawk Show recognizes both the beauty and brains of design. Judges Marty Neumeier (chairperson), Diti Katona, Bryan Edmondson, and Gaby Brink reviewed almost 1,000 entries for the Mohawk award. Five winners were chosen based on intelligence, wit, virtuosity, and production excellence, including the California Academy of Science for Evolution at the California Academy of Science and Cahan & Associates for TED Program Guide.

Competition is fierce. Finalists in the stationery category included Kate Spade and Rebecca Ward Invitation, both with superb entries. But the winner is (envelope please)….Paper Culture’s The Faces of Stationery. (Now you can clap.)

While the judging for Mohawk Show 11 was held in New York in June 2010, our Paper Culture team was invited to sip some champagne with winners last week in San Francisco. Here’s a toast to Huiling Chen, creative director at Paper Culture for her beautiful note cards and stationery designs that inspire us all!
