The Scandinavian countries have given the rest of the world so much in the way of design: chairs, sofas, a shared understanding of how an Airbnb should be decorated, universal love for hygge, Ikea. But for decades, the celebrated designers coming out of northern Europe were mostly men. Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl, Hans Wegner â€” all guys. Real Nordic Living, out from Thames & Hudson, offers a broader and more up-to-date idea of what constitutes Scandinavian design.
The country of Georgia has not historically had a go-to designer you could point to to explain the national style in the way you could hold up Charles and Ray Eames as the epitome of American mid-century design, or Naoto Fukasawa as an ambassador for Japanese minimalism. But if any design team is poised to assume that position for the Eastern European country, itâ€™s almost assuredly Rooms, a two-woman design studio operating out of Tbilisi.
Neon has existed for centuries and been ubiquitous for decades, but one need not look farther than the self-love decal Petra Collins designed for CafĂŠ Henrie to guess that the medium is having something of a moment. Neon used to simply spell out â€œno vacancyâ€? or â€œBudweiser,â€? but itâ€™s now often used for the kinds of â€œGood Vibesâ€? signs one might see at a Sweetgreen. When vendors opened their booths this summer at Brooklynâ€™s new DeKalb Market Hall, they were required to have neon signs.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
