3. Parliament of Owls Design, not only to I lovingly admire their name, I also really dig their designs. Based in Brooklyn, they describe their designs as “old-school with a modern twist, stunningly crafted and surprisingly insightful.” I tend to agree with them. Follow them on Twitter!

4. Absurd Overheard is pure genius! I wish I would have thought of this one myself, but I definitely don’t have the mad skills that CMYKaren has. Karen illustrates absurd comments and tweets into some great art. I absolutely love her work and this idea!

7. Google Insights, as you know, I’m a huge fan of Google! Even have a Google phone. Anywho, Google Insights is a powerful search tool that allows users to compare products, competitors and other search terms. View data over time, geographically and by category to help pinpoint trends and what searches are popular. This tool is useful for consumers looking make a large purchase to compare brands, but also valuable as a Social Media tool for insight. It’s worth checking out.
