MADE worked on a last minute brief from a renowned global logistics coordinator (aka Santa) to create Kringle. Watch the behind the scenes video to see how they did it. Made me smile.
I am a huge fan of Toca Boca apps and always get excited when a new one is about to launch. I am counting the minutes until Toca Lab launches tomorrow. Toca Lab lets you explore the colorful and electrifying world of science and meet all 118 of the elements from the periodic table.
I wouldn’t mind having one of these chair hoodies here at Studiomates to send a signal when I need some time to focus, a time with no interruptions. They are by Bernotat & Co.
Going down memory lane. This is one of my Loriot favorites.
I find the Forever Pillow brilliant and hilarious at the same time. I’d use it.
The Yule Log 2.0 site just put the biggest smile on my face. Go fullscreen. Sit back. Enjoy.
Who knew a product video for a ring could be this charming and funny? Congrats to Digby & Iona for hiring talented Mac Premo and show us what’s possible in the world of dry product videos. Here’s the link to the Eyes & Stars Signet ring, in case you want to buy it.
How incredibly retro cool is this VW Campervan Children’s Play Tent? The best part; it pops up and packs down into a spare wheel carry case.
Oh Deer, look what Tattly just launched. Also, Subscriptions are back!
This Plush Fire Hydrant made me giggle. Tilo (3) would definitely approve!
Love the idea behind this pop music wisdom book by Markus Kraft. It lists 250 of the best pop songs for those times that solid life advice is needed. The songs represent all popular music styles from the last 50 years, from rock to folk and from punk to hip hop.
Type nerds, check out this Adjustable Clampersand. Brilliant and amazing, right?
This Tumblr made me laugh. It is entirely dedicated to Designers Touching Their Faces.
Made from recycled paper, rainbow pencils let you create beautiful paper rainbows when you sharpen them. Congrats to the designer Duncan Shotton.
Yoni Lefevre has created “Grey Power,” a project that recreates kids’ drawings of their grandparents in colorful, sometimes surreal photos. Love this so much.
Which one gets your vote? Drink Whiskey or Drink Coffee? Both designs by Will Bryant.
Laser Cat from Hungry Castle on Vimeo.
Last week I had the honor to meet the fine gentlemen behind Laser Cat: Kevin O’Callaghan and Hungry Castle. Their excitement over Laser Cat, a collaboration between them and ADC was refreshingly adorable. The project aims to get us creative types to submit personal art to Laser Cat so that he can show it to the world. We all got into this game because we loved art but many creatives have lost touch with their art because of the nature of the business. Laser Cat is hungry to change that.
Make Laser Cat happy by sending in Drawings, Ceramics, Sculptures, Paintings, Photography, Cat Photography or Film. The more art he’s fed the stronger he grows. 100 submitted artworks gives him the power to project on walls, 1000 means he can cover buildings and if he’s fed 1 Million artworks then Laser Cat will be able to project art onto the moon. (!!!)
You have until November 30 to feed Laser Cat. The launch of the biggest art show ever will take place on Miami Beach at the Bass Museum next April 7-9 as part of the ADC Annual Awards + Festival of Art and Craft in Advertising and Design.
Yes, this all is a bit strange. But that’s ok.
The Universe Salutes You, designed by James Victore. Made me laugh.
This video by Yann Pineill & Nicolas Lefaucheux is stunning. It powerfully illustrates the beauty of math, even if you don’t understand math. Make sure to watch fullscreen!
