The Weekly

MARCH 09, 2021


Short but sweet Weekly for this pseudo-Spring week (partially because we’re preoccupied taking in the warm weather). Enjoy the sun, read something good, and we’ll see you right back here in seven days.


Links That Kept Us Reading

Lovers Magazine is an online magazine for creative professionals—and for International Women’s Day, they shared over 50 interviews with women who design. We’re looking forward to reading every single one of them!
What has COVID-19 done to our collective mental wellbeing? Mental health struggles, increased job demands, and home-life challenges, all illustrated in 12 neat charts by Harvard Business Review researchers.
Email and Slack have locked us into a productivity paradox, writes Cal Newport for Wired... *shares in Slack and this newsletter.* The irony is thick. A good read nonetheless!
Have you heard of Mini Brands? If not, get ready for a proper highlight of your week. “Vicarious food shopping simulates a lost pleasure, even when what you’re shopping for is a tiny jar of Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter.” Have fun with this one.

News: Wilder Fields and Saint Kate are featured in gestalten’s newest publication Brand New Brand

We’re so excited to share that our work for Wilder Fields and Saint Kate is featured in gestalten Publishing’s Brand New Brand—a 256-page “celebration of the dynamic visual identities helping small businesses make big impressions.”

Brand New Brand “presents the most successful business branding in recent years—collecting the best-in-class examples [that] illustrate how well-curated, holistic branding can take a butcher’s, bookstore, bakery, or even a physiotherapist from the bottom of the pile to the top of the range.”

Through a curated selection of case studies from those built on a small budget, others focusing on sustainable approaches, and many which blaze a trail, Brand New Brand is the handbook that shows how to stand out and be noticed.
