Welcome back to the Isolation Diaries, our weekly round-up of the things that bring us joy, keep us creatively motivated and help us unwind. What have you been up to?

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume27 Reading

A collection of charming short stories, it’s easy to see why Elizabeth Tan’s Smart Ovens for Lonely People is a finalist for the 2020 Readings Prize. Curious about disco and just how it managed to take over the music scene for a while? Well, this interview with Nile Rogers gives a little bit of insight. Struggling to slow down? It’s a common problem, even during this pandemic. How to Do Nothing is a plan for change, at a time we most need it.

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume27 Watching

If you missed the U.S. Presidential debate... Here’s a quick recap of how it went, have the Harry Stiles meditation tapes ready. David Attenborough’s latest film is a witness statement to the changes to our planet throughout his lifetime. While at times difficult to watch, it does end on a hopeful note with a vision for a different future—A recommended watch. To lighten things up a bit, we’re checking out The Gentlemen, an action-comedy directed by Guy Richie.

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume27 Making

It’s Spring! Our eyes are itching, the birds are singing, the trees are blossoming and, really, it’s the perfect time to take a long walk in the park. Perhaps with a spicy margarita. We’re also ordering these fancy grazing platters because we’re in need of a delicious, seasonal spread. Celebrate the blooms by learning how to make your own floral arrangements. Or maybe plant some for the bees, it’ll be a perfect pop of colour for your yard, balcony, or the window sill.

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume27 Listening

We’ve created this ode to Spring, the most sensual, fragrant and romantic of seasons. It’s the perfect pairing for a laze about on the grass, a quiet drink and ponder, or a reflective evening stroll. A classic go-to when we were working in the Clear studio, we miss the plains down in Africa so we’re revisiting everything Toto. Following on from our Nile Rogers reading, we’re heading back through the catalogue… We recommend stopping at three hours.
