About Us

After a brief stint in Boston, Steven and I are back in Houston discovering our city all over again. Steven is a graphic designer, and it’s because of him that I have such a fondness for design. We have a bunny named Eames, and a cat named Charlotte. They always keep us on our toes.
About DC

Initially a creative journal for an environmental design class I took back in 2008, Design Curiosities has become a creative outlet for us. It is a collection of our favorite things. For Steven, that means graphic design, typography, illustration, space, and the occasional bad ass motorcycle. For me, curiosities, biology, art, photography, and occasionally interiors.

Here is the short list of regular and non-regular features.

Our blog is a collection of things that inspire us. That means we often feature work by other designers, artists, and creative professionals. Full credit will always be given to the creator, and sources will be given. If you ever find something incorrectly listed, please notify us here. That goes for the creators of work featured on DC as well. If you would like your work removed, or additional information included in the post, please contact us.

You are always welcome to share content featured on Design Curiosities on your own blog or website. If it was created by Steven or me, we ask that you clearly credit us and included a link back to the original post on DC. Otherwise, please use your discretion. Bloggers etiquette is to link to the original post, and more importantly, give credit to the creator of the content. Please never copy our posts in their entirety.

Comments and criticisms are always welcome here, but we do moderate. We do so to weed out spam, inappropriate comments, and self promotion. Please leave constructive comments! In regard to self promotion, please only leave a link to your blog once, in the box designed for it. Extra links are not necessary unless you are sharing a particular post, relevant to the topic at hand. Again, use your discretion, and we will use ours in approving comments.

If you are going to pin images from our blog we ask two things. One, please pin from the original post (click on the post’s title). Two, please pin from the original source (i.e. the creators website).

Design Curiosities currently does not have paid advertisers. If you would like to become an advertiser on DC please e-mail us. In regards to our advertisers, we will never take on ads that do not reflect our personal taste and standards.

Submissions are always welcome, and very much encouraged. If you have a personal project you would like to share with us, or find something that you think we might like, send us an e-mail.

While the best place to find us is here on Design Curiosities, we use a few other social media outlets:
Pinterest, Instagram (S), Instagram (N), Instagram (E), and Facebook.
