During the summer, I completed a Michael Beirut inspired design project, repeating the same creative act for 100 days. Celebrating the domesticated landscape around me, I took flower pictures and edited them with instagram.
As a result of the project, I became one of those people who couldn’t walk by flowers without stopping. It was rewarding to have the delicate details jump out in the midst of the overheated city.
Noe that fall is here, I am missing the summer weather and the project. Will have to embark on a new project for winter.
Here are my top 5 favourites of the collection. What will your project be?
Mapnificent is a time-based transit travel map created by Stefan Wehrmeyer. The highlighted zone indicates the distance that can be traveled in 15 minutes in transit.
This Google Maps Application is a fantastic visual tool, revealing functional service levels of transit. Would be interesting to cross-reference this with other publicly available data such as density or property values.
Finally, my love of treehouses and birdhouses have merged!

I’m taking on Michael Beirut’s 100-Day Design Workshop assignment:
Do a design operation that you are capable of repeating every day. Do it every day.
I had been wanting to do this for a while but my design choice finally came to me the other day as I have been enjoying the summer foliage. Although photography is not an act of creation, it is an intriguing form of editing and I’m curious to see how repetition inspires creativity.
