Marissa picked up one of these Skeem travel votives the other day at Terrain, and we both loved the graphic black type against the brightly colored wax. The Philadelphia-based company uses a soy/paraffin wax blend poured into reusable glass containers.

{marissa likes}: from an oh joy! intern

Sarafanelli

In February, I took on my very first intern, a college senior graphic design student named Marissa who has been SO great to work with. I've been keeping her busy with other projects which is why you've yet to hear from her until today. So I thought it would be a great time to share some of Marissa's favorites a couple times a week until she leaves me next month to go off into the full-time working world. So, here we have the first of a short series of picks from Marissa in her words...."Magma is one of my favorite shops in London. They sell great design books and posters. I particularly like the book Sometimes I Think, Sometimes I Am which showcases the work of illustrator Sara Fanelli."
