The Presenting One Design Theory. Been thinking a lot about this lately… I’m wondering if the very nice rebrand of USA Today by Wolf Olins isn’t an example of a “one design solution” presentation. The new circle logo and its ever expanding graphic language is perfect in its execution and theory. So much so that I could not imagine what the other “solutions” might have been. My guess is you show up with this design and say “your welcome”. Inspiring.

Alone in the Wilderness Part Two (trailer)

“Learn to use an axe and respect it, and you can’t help but love it.”- Dick Proenneke

All these years and we never knew there’d ever be a sequel to the movie that played such a huge role around Best Made. We’d argue that part one of Alone in the Wilderness was one of the bigger catalysts for starting our company: Dick Proenneke’s uncanny blend of craft combined with his sheer courage and fortitude for being able to live alone in northern Alaska (alone) for 30 years make for a truly Best Made man, a Best Made movie. Lucky for everyone and thanks to Bob Swerer, Dick is back — better than ever — in the sequel and we just got our hands on some of the first copies which were released this week.

Proenneke lived a life that many of us dream of, and we encourage everyone to keep dreaming but more importantly we encourage you to act. You don’t have to move alone to the wilds of Alaska for thirty years to be as free as Proenneke. You don’t have to build your own log cabin either. Just get outside, and without even thinking you’ll soon enough find yourself on your own amazing path to exploration, documentation, and creation.

I commute by foot and by train every day. I need to travel light so in my EDC you’ll find only what I use every day.  The only duplication you’ll notice is the Wenger and the Leatherman.  I rarely use the Wenger’s blade but I always find use for the bottle opener and scissors.  Also, for those of you that are frequently underground without cellular service, one can never underestimate the value of an accurate time piece.  I’ve been toying with the idea of pocketing a flashlight but my iPhone always seems to rise to the challenge.

Editor’s Note: Nice simple carry. You bring up a good point about having an accurate timepiece, knowing what time it is and being on time can save a lot of hassle sometimes. There are other benefits to keeping time with a watch, in some settings it’s just more polite to check the time discreetly on your watch than to pull out your phone. For students, taking out your phone to check the time during an exam is grounds for failure, and knowing/managing your time is crucial. As for a light, if you need to carry minimally and your phone does a good job, then there’s no pressure to upgrade. I could only imagine you’d find it handy if your commute runs late at night and if you’re underground a lot, but also realize that in case of an emergency, having a bright flashlight might attract unwanted attention from desperate people left in the dark. Kind of strange, isn’t it? Sometimes it’s better to use a cheapy light or your phone… Anyway, thanks for sharing!
