A curated selection of what’s been happening in the Funkhaus talk and thought circles for the month of May. From entertaining reads to pop-culture podcasts that keep us on the edge of our seats, here’s a roundup of what this month brought.

It’s NBA Finals time yet again and everyone’s got a serious case of déjà vu. Who would have thought that in a time of such uncertainty, sports would be the beacon of stability? And while we weren’t exactly rooting for Cavs-Warriors IV, we feel lucky to watch LeBron’s greatness.

Let’s get the bad news out of the way first: we’re pretty bummed to say goodbye to Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. From inventive photoshoots to captivating interviews that continually broke the mold of what was expected, the content was (and always will be) awe-inspiring. The New Yorker took some time to discuss the legacy of the magazine—it’s definitely worth a read. The good news? They went out with a bang, publishing this piece that featured a discussion with the choreographer of Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” video.

Speaking of internet happenings, our work for JOJX and Eskimo got some acclaim here and here.

Whether you’re searching for some awesome imagery or want to play around with color, we’re loving the creative capabilities made possible with Duotone by Shape Factory .

Is minimalism dead? This read on the resurgence of retro logos offers up a visual highlight reel in the world of branding.

Funkhaus is full of fans of both The Office and The Ringer, so it’s easy to see why we thoroughly enjoyed this read.

And while we’re on the topic of television and loving The Ringer—any new Westworld theories out there? Send them our way, ASAP. In the meantime, we’ll be listening to this ten times over.
