Charles Eames is equally as famous for his designs as for his pithy quotable sayings. One of his most well-known is “The details are not the details. They make the design.” And you can’t really get more detail oriented than those tiny knobs and handles that open drawers and cupboards. However, these are the finishing touches that can truly make your whole design scheme pop. Vesta Fine Hardware takes the principles of European craftsmanship and applies it to this tiniest home detail.
If you’ve ever tried to paint a ceiling yourself, you’ll know why they so often go undecorated. Gravity doesn’t make it an easy job. Even Michelangelo felt that painting a ceiling was pure physical agony—contrary to popular legend, he stood while painting—but when the Sistine Chapel ceiling was revealed to a crowd in 1512, it was met with stunned silence. Today, more than five million people head to the Vatican every year to peek at it.
When Stephanie Yap and Matthew Vrettas signed up for a pottery class, they were just looking to do something a little different than the usual dinner and a movie date night. They found that they loved collaborating and making things together. And soon, friends were asking to purchase pieces, which gave them the motivation to turn the date-night hobby into a business. They named their collaborations Ghost Wares as a little nod to the iconic pottery scene in the movie Ghost.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
