Come on, get happy!

You're probably familiar with Stefan Sagmeister the designer, who's created album covers for rock stars like Lou Reed and David Byrne. Now meet Stefan the filmmaker, as he documents his journey to find that one thing we're all looking for but just can't seem to find: happiness. He spends three months on three different methods — meditation, therapy, and drugs — all in a Super Size Me-style immersive experience.


Cute enough to eat

Friend tested, family approved! The folks behind Chickpea collect recipes from all four corners of the vegan world and compile them into a publication that is part cookbook, part storybook. Their mission is to unite chefs and eaters everywhere with dairy-free, non-carnivorous deliciousness like "The Art of Packing Lunch" and savory pot pies. Is your tummy rumbling yet?


Natural selection

One morning Tyler Panian woke up from a dream where he played a crazy card game that didn't exist. Yet. With help from his friend Angie, he developed that dream into a new mix-and-match card game that's the perfect blend of strategy and silliness, where made-up animals play fantasy survival of the fittest. Oc-pota-dillo, anyone?
