Mural by Dopludό Collective.
Simple, subtle, and wacky, this hand-drawn mural is a scattered display of arbitrary shapes, eyeballs, broken plates, puffs, twists, and squiggles lines. Created by the members of the Dopludό Collective—Karina Eybatova, Lesha Galkin & Egor Kraft—this mural and others are located in the art-influenced Bit Hotel of El Poblenou, Barcelona.

Joy the Baker's Dark Chocolate, Pistachio, and Smoked Sea Salt Cookies.
Joy Wilson's blog is not new (She has been featured in Sunset and Food and Wine), but that doesn't make this Friday Find any less exciting. Joy the Baker is a modern Betty Crocker with recipe wonders like dark chocolate, pistachio, and smoked sea salt cookies and toasted marshmallow milkshakes. Her prose is endearing with advice like, "If you're lucky enough to romance someone with breakfast in bed…do not bring kale." For those entertaining this weekend, take a peek for meal planning inspiration.

Apple vs. Samsung. Who do you think should prevail in this legal matter?
As usual, the Economist offers a reasoned, reasonable account of Apple's legal battle with Samsung—the most exciting thing happening in San Jose, California, at the moment. Rather a canny look at the functions and disfunctions of American patent law and a good take on what either ruling from Judge Lucy Koh could mean. Design heads might fine themselves reflexively plumping for Apple in this case. They should think hard about what it would mean for Apple to drive Samsung from the market.

Alejandro: Ring Ring, Can You Hear Me Now?!

Call Parade is an ongoing free public art project which has taken the streets of Sao Paulo, Brazil by storm. 100 artists have been paired with 100 street-side phone booths giving them a free reign to transform the hooded fixtures into anything imaginable. The works are then left to the public to vote for their favorite. Very cool!
