THE BUS PICKS:

FOUND MY ANIMAL

Yes, It’s finally Friday and as we get close to mid April we can finally look forward to longer and warmer-ish days, which are perfect for strolling around the city and exploring! Every once in a while during my “exploring” I imagine I have a dog and I’m sightseeing around the city with her… Weird? Maybe, but if there’s one thing I’m crazy about, it would definitely have to be animals. I currently have a cat and would love to have a husky, but don’t have a big enough apartment/house for her to live in, so for the time being imaginary husky is what I have. So, today’s Bus Pick goes out to all current and future dog owners! Meet Found My Animal.

Found My Animal has been popping up more and more in design and pet stores all over and it’s not hard to see why. Founded by Anna Conway and Bethany Obrecht, together they have built a brand of pet accessories like no other. After meeting while they where walking their two rescue pups, they decided to become partners and use their work to be able to spread their passion for animals, animal welfare and the principles of what good design could do. That is how Found came to be, a brand that supports, honors and encourages the adoption of abandoned animals.

You can check out their beautiful dog accessories here. They have a unique nautical feel and range from leashes and collars to carriers and dog beds. What’s special about them, besides how beautiful they are, is that they are all made using sustainable and ecological practices. Each collar is handcrafted in Brooklyn, NY using reclaimed leather, navy marine-grade & UV-resistant rope and solid brass hardware.

All materials are meticulously crafted and thought out to make them last forever; for example, the leashes get hand-spliced to withstand thousands of pounds of pull and then have their ends “whipped” (an old nautical term) for additional durability. They also contain marine grade hardware like solid o-rings and clips, which means that the leash can be used and worn in a lot of different ways. These same clips are also used on their other accessories like the collapsible water bowl and the multi-use pouch, making it easy for you to attach them to the leash itself.

So, good job Found! Seeing such a perfect marriage between honest principles and good design is always incredibly encouraging, which is how business should always be.

YOUR WORKSPACE AS
A SECOND HOME

Hello! I’m Luis “Threz” Palencia, Graphic Designer at El Autobus, I’d like to talk with you guys about something pretty important for us as designers: The Workspace.

It’s important when working to have a space that allows us to feel at ease and represent our personality. In the creative world, our ability to be innovative and find that “moment of inspiration” is determined by our environment and the energy around us.  With that said, we set out to look for workspace options that can help create an optimal environment that reflects our personality and makes for a more comfortable and productive environment.

Analog Memory Desk

Perfect for those who prefer pencil and paper before any other option. 1,100 yards of paper that serve as a place to jot down notes or sketch that spur of the moment idea. In a time where life moves at such a furious pace, its great to have a place to keep our most important inspiration and details at a moments notice.

Refold Desk

Constructed from recycled cardboard, Refold offers an innovative and sustainable approach to our workspace. Believing in the need to generate a real change not only in the environment, but in our personal spaces as well, Refold offers a standing desk for people who sit all day at work. Working while standing can help combat a sedentary lifestyle while encouraging physical activity, without interrupting your workflow. You can customize the appearance of the desk anyway you like, taking advantage of the cardboard surface, it’s like a blank canvas.  It can be assembled and disassembled in a matter of minutes and is completely portable.

Our mood and needs are variables in our daily lives; having the ability to shape them to improve our work is important. The Worknest’s modular pieces allow us to add or remove elements according to our needs or mood. Worknest is a fully customizable modular desk that allows us to optimize our work environment to our specific needs.
