Danielle Krysa’s Top 5 Tips for Shutting Down Your Inner Critic

                                <em>As artists, designers or any kind of creative, or human being(!), we all know that our inner voice can be kind of a Debbie Downer.

                                We’ve never done something like this before, but with only 2 DAYS LEFT in their <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/foodhistory/food-history" >Kickstarter</a> campaign, we felt compelled to dedicate this month’s contribution to <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/foodhistory/food-history" >Papila’s Food History Project</a>.
We first started following the Spanish design studio, Papila in 2011 when they launched their ingenious Citrus Spray, the first cooking utensil that allows spraying citrus juice using it’s own fruit as the container. We love this product and use it at Pinch for our raw bar installations, specialty cocktail infusions and more! Papila-Food-History-book-2 So when we heard they were putting together an infographic food history book, we couldn’t help but be very curious. And boy are we excited to share this with you guys! The Papila team has designed a beautiful book about the history of food – and how its relationship with humans has evolved. Using icons and brief explanations, this book will teach you about the evolution

Lots of fun projects in the design world we don’t want to pass up this month…from street art to watches! There’s only one thing we love more than good art… Good STREET art.
