We love looking at other companies who create a great product or service, and of course, Pinterest is on that list. The San Francisco based company has unique and vintage-esque accents and pieces that make the space pop! Check out the office below:
We’re all for this Pinterest-themed Ryan Gosling meme!
What you create is partially indicative of the environment that it was created in. Pinterest shows a wonderful balance between creative, quirky, and practical elements and decor that really make it one of the more innovative spaces we’ve seen! Want more inspiration?

We were at the ID Pop-Up Shop in Chelsea Market last week and had a blast talking with everyone, meeting travelers from Australia to South Korea, native New Yorkers and everyone in between! We had such a successful week that we completely sold out of several products, including our Chrysler key charm!
We’re all set up and ready to go!
Two of our coolest customers! They’re in a band called Boss and Swan!
Getting some illustrating in!
Spotted a really great window display from Anthropologie!
Some awesome artwork in Chelsea Market.
Super delicious pasta for dinner from Giovanni Rana in Chelsea Market! Yum!
If you missed us at Chelsea Market, you can pick up any of our products online and just in time for the holidays! We will be there again from November 4th to the 10th, so make sure to stop by and say hi! We’ll have new cuffs in for cities we haven’t launched yet!

I am absolutely loving the beautiful illustrations of James Gulliver Hancock, an illustrator originally from Australia, currently based in Brooklyn. He’s taken up the task of drawing all of the buildings in New York and I’m amazed at what he’s done so far! Super inspiring.

Fall is here! I’m so excited to bake delicious cookies (I get obsessive and bake batch after batch) and make every soup imaginable (within reason), stroll through the leaves in Prospect Park on my way to the farmer’s market, and sip hot spiked cider (yummm!!) on the couch with a warm blanket while watching my favorite shows on Netflix. I find that with each season shift there is an abundance of inspiration that follows. Here are a few things that remind me of the wonders of the autumn season.
I’ve created a Pinterest board this year just to mark this season. I’m not sure why I’m anticipating it so. Maybe because this year we’ve actually had weather that feels like the Fall and not a harsh jump from Summer to Winter? Or maybe it’s the awareness of needing to hibernate. I’ve had a very productive year, maybe this is time for reflection and I’m looking forward to it? Do you feel this way too? What do you love about the Fall?

In the past few days, new street art from the well-known and highly sought after Banksy has appeared across New York City, from Chinatown to Midtown. Described as “an artist’s residency on the streets of New York”, these recent Banksy pieces are apart of his “Better Out Than In” series.
The hype around the city is building again considering this is the newest work we’ve seen in awhile from the artist, and especially so close to home.
The first piece was unfortunately tagged over by a more amateur artist, though we’re sure that mistake won’t happen again. Banksy has recently joined the ranks of Instagram street artists so follow his general account as well as his NYC specific account. Can’t get enough? You’re in luck – he’s going to be doing works for the entire month of October in the city. with Try to go out and locate these works of art while you still can!

Hey there! My name is Morgen, I’m a student at Pratt Institute, majoring in Critical and Visual Studies and I’m the new writing and social media intern! I have a passion for writing, social media, well curated content, and helping create amazing products, which brought me to Designhype. I’ve only been here for a few days, but I’m positive that my time here will allow me to reach new levels skill-wise.
I enjoy having learning experiences outside of the classroom and I truly do believe that internships like this push the concepts of any field more effectively than any classroom or book can convey. What a better backdrop to this alternative learning experience than the wide span of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where natural light graces my computer screen as I log into Gmail for the morning!
I am excited to be working with Tiffany and Jenny and absorbing as much information as possible, from product manufacturing and samples to customer support and care. I’m looking forward to writing more for the blog and social media profiles – so be on the lookout for that as well. I have been interested in entrepreneurs who are able to create unique products that have an appealing aesthetic, and I can’t wait for what this semester has in store!
If you want to know more about me, check out my personal blog, WhoIsMorgen.com and my dazzling, magazine worthy Instagram. Just kidding. Not really. Keep following the Designhype blog for more updates and check out our Facebook and Twitter!
