The history of Herman Miller design has always had a somewhat utopic and storybook allure for design lovers. For starters, the setting is an unusual one: the company known for shepherding modern furniture into American homes and offices is and has always been headquartered in Zeeland, Michigan, population 5,500.
“Imagine that your uncle is Robert Rauschenberg and that he leaves you his printing studio when he passes away,” starts out a new installment of the Portland Makers Series from our friends at Portland AIGA. “You and your favorite art buddies adopt it as your second home, exploring all his legendary printing methods and making art experiments for hours at a stretch.
In Mexico City’s central Colonia Juárez neighborhood, just off the major avenue Paseo de la Reforma that runs through the heart of the city, sits a building so unassuming—and unmarked—that it takes me three walks down the block and back to realize I’m in the right place. That fact is confirmed by the doorman, who is sitting in a chair on the sidewalk, and points me toward a cavernous, and seemingly empty, entrance.
Very good piece by @aggietoppins on the widespread acceptance of unpaid internships, and why it's unethical. You may know the argument but she makes some excellent points from the perspective of an educator https://t.co/hXN3La66Ft
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".
