Time flies when there’s a new UK Prime Minister every time I sit down to write these. Figma was bought by Adobe for an egregious amount of money (sad for me, but good for them), Kanye has been dropped by Adidas and other corporate partners (about time), and my heart hurts over everything happening in Iran and Ukraine. As always, there is a lot going on in the world.
In my smaller bubble of Brooklyn, the season change is a welcomed one. I love Halloween because it’s still a novelty to me, growing up in Australia without it and seasons in general. Cooler weather, slower days, and pumpkin-flavored everything have me leaning hard into Basic White Girl During Fall vibes.
I’ve been feeling particularly inspired to create more ideas under Super Keen as an entity, designing new limited swag and launching ideas like the Over Easy Bootcamp which has been really fun so far. Lauren and I went pretty hard on client work at the beginning of the year, which means we’ve created a lot more space for studio initiatives in Q4 like our case studies (coming soon), Culturae (open call below), and a production week at Miami Art Basel (will anyone else be there?)
Hope you are all enjoying whatever season you’re in. Until next time.
Resource of the Week
I don’t even use After Effects and yet this looks amazing. I’ve already shared it with my AE nerds but if you’re interested in saving the time in timeline, Skew might help with that.
Lucky Dip Links
A micro-newsletter service built for artists to directly reach their clients and followers in the place they are most active.
A collection of purpose-built, digital, accessible guidelines from global brands.
This House Does Not Exist
The same AI concept as This Person Does Not Exist, but for houses.
Speaking of houses, all I want is to live in a tiny home that is smart and beautiful, and ugh, this is cool.

Drink This Wine
Love this wine brand identity by Fisk, who are always making inspiring, beautiful work.
I had a gift voucher for YOWIE which made me give in and try this fancy olive oil. I have to say, it does actually live up to the hype and I love having the bottle sitting on my kitchen countertop.
More cute bottles to sit on your kitchen countertop that have not been vetted by me but are undeniably very cute.

Culturae Open Call
Culturae, our creative expert network, is ready for an international round 2! We’re accepting applications from designers with at least 5 years of experience who want to connect with creatives or get/send project opportunities. Apply before Nov 20.
We (Gabby and Lauren) created it because we wanted a way to share project opportunities and expand our own network of creative experts. Culturae is the first product from our studio and a humble experiment we hope people find helpful.
All resources and links are shared purely because I think they are cool, interesting, or helpful. No content is sponsored unless explicitly stated. I am open to submissions but cannot promise they will be featured.
