DCILY on Flipboard


DCILY was treated to a nice surprise on its second anniversary from the makers of Flipboard. Thanks to the heads up from Sheena, who informed me that we’re featured alongside esteemed lifestyle publications like Curbed, Bon Appetit, Dwell & Gilt Taste.

If you aren’t familiar with Flipboard, it turns your favorite social and RSS feeds into a beautifully designed magazine on the iPad (and now the iPhone). It’s one of my favorite apps and changed the way I enjoy content on the internet.

If you already have it, add DCILY and enjoy!

Brave New World of Coffee


Beautifully clean editorial design for an article about the new wave of coffee in San Francisco Magazine.

A new generation of café owners and roasters has burst from the dark shadow of Peet’s and “Charbucks,” luring its patrons toward a more complex and varied caffeinated frontier. Its members value lighter roasts, the better to unmask a coffee’s nuanced nature. They place emphasis on provenance and preparation, tracing beans to cherished “micro-lots” and prized Producers while geeking out over machines priced higher than your car. They hold public “cuppings.” They debate “flavor profiles,” gushing over citrus notes and chocolaty aromas. Like chefs fi ne-tuning menus, they approach their product as cuisine. –San Francisco Magazine

Hustle Juice


On Friday, at noon Pacific time, a group of creatives (including designers, writers, editors, etc.) began their effort to gather, edit, design, publish, and print a magazine in just 48 hours. They are streaming the process live over Ustream and anyone from around the world can submit to the first issue’s theme, “Hustle,” by 4pm Pacific time today.

When I tuned in last night the team was understandably drinking beer, but I’m sure at some point in the process they will need lots of coffee. I sat down last night with a pot and worked on a submission they may find helpful. Enjoy.
