A Gift Idea For The Guy In Your Life

Calling all dudes — or ladies buying gifts for dudes!

Juniper Briggs (who yes, has a fantastic name!) is an abstract artist, writer and curator based in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Hustlers: Jon Lo of The Happy Mundane

I first found Jon Lo on Instagram and have been following him every since. He’s a seasoned blogger who helped pave the path for the rest of us, all while running his design business and collaborating on projects with other brands such as his newest project, The Octopian.

Our conversations started in early January and ventured from the topic of selling out to architecture to Mindy Kaling to the words “magical” and “meme”. Here’s out candid chat:
