Featured in this week’s Ad Age is Red Peak planner Nate Dwyer’s take on the rise in premium alcohol sales in the US. Current consumer purchasing behavior of alcohol is a bit contradictory.

Freelance graphic artist Richard C. Evans was given the difficult task of designing a business card both elegant and memorable for the London-based modern furniture store, Bentply. Business cards rarely achieve either of these goals and more commonly end up underneath seat cushions or at the bottom of trashcans. But this card is too cool to ignore or discard. Made from three layers of paper, it can be folded into a miniature chair, one that the store actually designed and sells. The chair provides a lovely adornment to any tabletop, while simultaneously serving as a constant reminder of that cool modernist furniture store you’ve been meaning to check out. Well done, Richard C. Evans! Will you design my wedding invitations?

French Designers, Thierry Boltz and Claude Saos of Boltz & Saos have designed a fetching alternative to the typical steel or aluminum bike. Combining their passion for beautiful design and no-nonsense transportation, they have created the WOOD.b, an urban bicycle composed of ash wood and steel components. "The WOOD.b from BSG Bikes might look like a work of art, but it's meant to function as an urban bicycle," says Freshness Mag. In other words, these bikes might look really pretty, but they're also durable and comfortable. And highly customizable. You choose the wood and color of the stainless steel parts, even the shape of the handlebars. I suspect I'll start seeing more of these wooden beauties popping up around New York. Get your orders in now. They're custom made in France, obviously.

Post-recession American consumers are gravitating towards more humble, "authentic" brands. But in developing countries, with the emergence of a middle class comes what Fox calls "the Trump idea of materialistic success." Read the rest of the article here.
