According to the creators of Stodgy is Sexy, the most important movement in today’s society is the return to classic values like simplicity, DIY, thrift, home-made, and basic common sense. They call it being stodgy. And to them, stodgy is where it’s at. They have put together a few short clips featuring people who exemplify this classic stodgy-ness. Chip Kidd, a prominent graphic designer of book covers, made the cut. I’m so happy he did because I completely agree with his take on the value of holding a book in hand.
Authors of the blog Young House Love were also featured. Their creative home renovation projects inspire me to pick up a few of my own.
