Adam Dixon | http://cargocollective.com/helloimadam
Adam Dixon, designer currently living in the great state of North Carolina. I like clean typography, good logos, and nice web layouts. I often listen to Independent music I don’t even like just to make myself look more cultured. It feels good to get that off my chest.

"In the early days there were such a lot of kinds of butterflies all over Taiwan, it’s the reason why Taiwan was historically called a kingdom of butterflies. Right after hearing the plan that our client, SHU MEEI, was developing the tea market in China, TROONION DESIGN was determined to make the butterflies be seen around the world.
We not only know those beautiful insects are able to dance here but also believe they will be able to fly across the Taiwan Strait to China and dance there. So, first of all, we picked seven categories of them and drew them by using color pencils. From the shapes, lines, scales, or even to the muscles, we had been trying hard to carve them as the way they are. Everything is hand-made. However, you find them real when you gaze at them.”
Troonion is a design studio located in Tainan, Taiwan. Focused on packaging, branding, graphic design and print design.

Shop Hunting Tuesdays - 05/11/2013
Sally Beerworth opened The J.O.E Foundation in May 2011. Everything you buy from us goes in part towards helping someone who needs the money more than us.
Sally doesn’t really consider herself an overly nice person, but when her own divorce almost cost her her smile, she decided to start The Foundation to help other people who got stuck with big legal and counseling bills. As she is a writer, it kinda made sense that she raise money through her book sales and the stuff you see here.
Obviously all our stuff has been CopyRight globally.
Everything is written by Sally, and made to look good by WeThreeClub.
We just hope we make you smile - if you have any issues with our products or service please tell us…we’re meant to be making you smile.
I first learned to look at life through the lens of a camera as a child, from my grandfather. I don’t remember the camera per se, but I do remember the magic of creating in the darkroom. Those days are long gone, and I prefer to use my digital, Nokia Lumina 1020. This is life through my eyes, be it landscape, people, animal, street, industrial, or plain old things. There is wonder everywhere at anytime, and to choose one photo that best describes me is near impossible. But I will say, sometimes the simplest things are the most wondrous and remarkable. I do not photoshop, and use very little editing. Enjoy.
