l-e-mental, Dear Claire Hyland

It seems with design blogs you have to make a choice. Lots of quick juicy bits of new, or longer, more cerebral servings of knowledge. But Claire Hyland’s blog, l-e-mental, captures the new and covers the knowledge, with intelligent commentary and a cool NY-centric spin. As Hyland herself puts it:

“Passionate about the evolving nature of art, architecture, design, branding and technology and their impact on popular culture? Fascinated by what’s new, innovative and cutting edge? Interested in the what, why and how of consumer behavior? Then, this is the blog for you.”

The beauty of it is, she delivers. It makes us feel like we have a very smart, very hip Irish woman holding our hand, pointing out things we should be paying attention to as we wander the city.
