Mural for CuratorLA

September 23, 2015

I recently created a mural for a new fashion concept store in Beverly Hills, CA called CuratorLA. The writing is something I wrote for my girlfriend, which was pulled from my Memories of a Girl I Never Knew series that I started on Instagram last year. Thanks to the awesome Julia Parris for helping me for 13 hours straight on location! And check out the cool video Jeremy made of the process.

Colette exhibition in Paris

February 17, 2015

A couple weeks ago I had an opening exhibition in Paris of my Instagram series “Memories of a Girl I Never Knew” at Colette. For those who don’t know Colette, it’s a very popular concept store that is a one-of-a-kind Parisian institution showcasing the latest fashion, gadgets, sneakers, books, fragrances, design, etc. I have 15 pieces from my “Memories” series exhibiting and selling online all of February, along with mugs, t-shirts, postcards, and lighters. I also wrote a couple of my stories on the walls in the store, and I had a 40 Days of Dating book signing at the opening, too. I was just in Paris a couple months ago, as my Ford car was displaying at the Paris Motor Show, and it was such an honor to come back to see my little writing series that I started last summer on my Instagram come to life in such an influential place like Colette.

Read about the series and see more pictures here. Prints are selling at 30” x 30” (76cm x 76cm). You can buy the prints and other products online here.

40 Days of Dating Book

January 7, 2015

Last month we announced that you can pre-order the 40 Days of Dating book! It officially comes out on January 20th. The number one question we had from fans was: What happened after day 40? That question is answered—and in addition to the entire blog—the book contains 304 pages, 60K new words, new art, essays by others, our own diary entries for up to a year after the experiment ended, and so much more. This was a real labor of love for us, working on and off on it for about 6 months. We really wanted to wrap ourselves in the context of today’s dating culture, and it was such an exciting process. Early pre-orderers got signed bookplates from us and custom cards we made and a dart to throw at our heads (we’ll be doing another round of those soon!) You can pre-order the book here:

Book design: Kevin Brainard and Raul Aguila
Art direction: Jessica Walsh, Timothy Goodman and Kevin Brainard

Adobe’s “FAIL” Column

October 21, 2014

This past summer, I began posting, on my Instagram, a series of handwritten stories called “Memories of a Girl I Never Knew.” I’ve written about 20 of them now. It’s been amazing to see how the stories have resonated with people, so Adobe asked me to contribute some of them to their “FAIL” column. So many of our personal experiences and failures are universal—and as designers, I believe we have a unique way of sharing our vulnerability with an audience.

Read some of the stories & my reason for doing them on Adobe here.

Quotes on Shit Project

September 24, 2014

As Jessica Walsh and I are hard at work on another crazy personal project (that will be out in the spring!) we’re doing a small side, SIDE project called Quotes on Shit. It’s inspired by the idea that we all use so much shit in our lives. We collect shit, buy shit, steal shit, trade shit, and throw shit away. But what happens with all this old shit after it leaves our hands? Our shit winds up in our garbage cans, on our streets, in our landfills, and in our junk shops. We feel bad for this abandoned and rejected shit, so we’re breathing new life into these unwanted objects by rescuing them, spray painting them, and giving them a voice.

We’ll be regularly updating it on our Instagram feeds @timothygoodman and @jessicawalsh. We’re also looking for anyone willing to send your old, unwanted shit to us so we can make it new again. Email us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
