How Do You Art Direct a Cow?

dairycows.jpg

DJ Stout has redesigned the magazine Dairy Today that is launching this month. In addition to a bold new logotype, the magazine will feature a stylized “portrait” of a dairy cow on the cover of each issue in an effort to differentiate it from its competitors.

I think these new covers are beautiful. Maybe it’s because I grew up around them, but I’ve always found cows to have a pastoral beauty. If you’ve ever spent time with them, you’ll know they’re very peaceful, mellow animals.

I’m Moving to New York City

IAC Building

So, it’s finally happened. I’ve got a job and I’m moving to NYC. I’ve been talking about this for a long time and I can’t express how excited I am to finally be doing it.

The Job

I’ll be working for IAC in the awesome Frank Gehry designed building in Chelsea. My job title is “front end developer” and I start on December 10th.

The Move

My last day at my current job is December 5th, a Wednesday. That gives me just four days to pack up in Rochester, move everything I own into storage, and show up for my first day of work the following Monday. I had once planned to take some time off but that is not going to happen even a little bit.

The Building

One of the coolest things about my new job will be working in the Frank Gehry designed IAC building. It’s been written about in a few places and is the subject of many pictures. For more coolness check out the building’s web site. How many buildings have their own web sites?

The Future

Since my day-to-day life is about to change drastically, AllMyLiesAreWishes is going to change as well. I’ll be using this blog to post random cool things I find and talk about restaurants and TV like always but I’ll also be chronicling all my fun adventures in the city. Stay tuned. I’ve got some cool stuff in the works.

Beautiful Outdoor Furniture with Animal-Headed Models

Besides this collection of outdoor furniture’s beauty, I was taken by the odd art direction in these photographs which look like they were styled by Anna Faris’s boyfriend from Entourage, dawg. Models with animal heads lounge on the pieces in these dramatic photos. I wouldn’t say I’ve had a recurring nightmare, but it’s always been easy for me to picture a person with an animal’s head and it kind of freaks me out. When I was little I used to think I’d wake up one day and everyone in my family would have animal heads—rabbits, dogs, bears, etc. This is that day dream realized.
