"For You Today"
Jessica Greenbaum / 2012

Of course there is a jackhammer. And a view, like Hopper,
but happier. Of course there is the newspaper—the daily
herald of our powerlessness. Easy go, easy come: thwash,
the next day another, an example of everything that gets done
in the dark. Like the initiative of the crocuses from a snow 
that was, as it works out, warming them. Or in this case,
the strange October weather warming them. There were the
conclusions we jumped to. To which we jumped. There was
pain, and then there was suffering. Of course there was my
ambition to offer you the world, but one that I have rearranged 
to make sense. Here are all the sensations of being alive
at the turn of the twenty-first century, here’s how they ring out
against each other, here’s how one brings out the sense of 
another, here is the yellow next to the fathomless blue.

Aesop — Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Kit
Melbourne, Australia

Aesop is a skin, hair, and body care brand who source plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients to create quality products that steer clear of the short-lived trends that are so prominent in the skincare industry. Established in Melbourne in 1987, Aesop has never been one to disappoint with their packaging design, and their Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Kit is no exception. Featuring medicine bottles and their signature utilitarian, type-heavy labels, Aesop continues to use design as an opinionated objection to the way that many beauty products of today are made and marketed.
