Marion emailed me about her design firm, studio m, and their first project: a candy store in Barcelona called Happy Pills. If this isn’t innovative design, then I don’t know what is. This might be my favorite design concept of the year. Enjoy!
1877: Quaker Oats registered as the first trademark for a breakfast cereal. The trademark was registered with the U.S. Patent Office as "a figure of a man in 'Quaker garb.'"
