Design Chick's Blogaboo!

Posts Tagged ‘Canada


Friends, family, blog world, I am sad to announce that my fellow cooworker, Robin McNicoll has decided to leave me. WHAT?! NO! HOW? BUT I THOUGHT YOU TWO WERE INSEPARABLE!
So did I, I had even built a cottage in muskoka for us to blog in and grow old together. But alas, her love for me has hardened like a chocolaty shell over a soft vanilla ball from dairy queen. A brick of chedder cheese that wasn’t re-wrapped properly, so the end of it is dark and inedible. Dark like my very soul at this very moment. ROBIN DONT GO! DONT LEAVE ME! Who am I to laugh with, raise a child with, and most importantly, ride a ferry with. oh how you loved slow boats.

I leave you with a song that I feel sums up our relationship. There have been ups and downs, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried. mostly cried, but by god you are my hero. You are the wind beneath my wings.

Farewell sweet friend.


We are designers and we design stuff.  Right Laura?

Right Robin.

The original point of this blog was to promote cool design stuff that we came across.  We then realized that we are really funny and awesome and we wrote about alot more stuff.  Anyways, to get back to our roots (don’t worry we’ll still post other awesome stuff) here is a cool video you should watch about a pretty disgusting but awesome billboard that WB came out with to promote their new movie Contagion.

Also, on a side note here’s a cool contagion contest you can enter.


Do you love music?  Do you love not being naked?  Well, we’ve got the website for you!

The staff at Guataca Music Wear are hardcore music fans and believe that nothing says ‘rock and roll’ like the emblematic black band t-shirt.  Created by world class designers these t-shirts are being brought to you as a part of a movement to help ensure children across the country have access to music programs at school.

Guataca wha?  What does guataca mean?  Guataca is Venezuelan slang. The word is used to describe musicians who have the ability to “play by ear.” If you have Guataca, making music is something that will come naturally.

When you purchase a Guataca Music Wear tee, a portion of the proceeds is donated directly to MusiCounts, a Canadian music education charity. MusiCounts’ mission is to insist that all Canadian children, regardless of cultural background or socio-economic circumstances have access to a comprehensive music program through their school.

Check out Guataca Music Wear today and support a kid who wants to play the guitar or the drums or flute or saxaphone or harp or banjo or xylophone or trumpet or the weird kid who just likes to snap.  Don’t be this guy, be cool and buy a t-shirt.


Vote for either Laura and I! Mines purple..so you should probably vote for me!

Here’s mine:

Here’s Stupid Laura’s (just kidding Laura, you are mad smart.)

Our beloved Kurt Browing, four-time Canadian figure skating champion and four-time world champion is apparently still making headlines, and not because of his show stopping numbers and his nice booty. no, not this time. While attempting to dry out his wet car seat with a leaf blower (??!!!), the car burst into flames and quickly spread to the attic.  The fire then moved quickly through the house, causing the roof to completely cave in!. “I was just watching reruns of kurts “brick house” performance from the 95 rock n roll championship, when smoke started billowing in!!!” explained a disgruntled Sonia Rodriguez, wife and biggest fan of Browning. “everything is gone. nothing was salvaged” she wept.

We tried to talk to Browning about what the frack he was thinking but he just told us to leave him alone, and then he skated away.
