I pick anything with one of Martin Wollerstam’s illustrations on it. His work is often featured on flyers for uber-sexy club night Fabric, but you lucky buggers get to see some choice cuts here.It’s no mean feat to draw with the imaginative abandonment of a 6-year-old and the skill of, well, a very very good (and ridiculously prolific) illustrator.
Three rolling street-side billboard ads with three tenuous uses of the Saint Georges flag can only mean one thing; it’s World Cup silly season.All the things you need to prepare you for a summer of sporting activity, you know – chocolate bars, beer, fizzy drinks – have provided us with all the ad nauseum we need for the coming summer months.
And there’s the new spot from Nike. In truth you don’t need them either, but as usual they claim a credible position with an irrefutable life message. The ad’s not bad either.
Mount Eyjafjallajökull. No we can’t pronounce it, yes it’s kept Suzy from seeing little Johnny for three whole days.
In truth this eruption has caused no end of disruption to the world of aviation, but if we step back from our travel itineraries for a moment, Mount Eyjafjallajökull becomes a stark reminder of the planets relative infancy as well as its amazing beauty.
Sean Stiegemeier certainly saw it, and he spent four days capturing it. He used a Canon 5d mkII, which I want, and music from Jónsi, which I like.
It was only a matter of time: the return of the tape cassette. I’ve been waffling on about this some time now, though I’m not one to blow my own trend-setting trumpet.
The tape release of Goldfrapp’s latest album Head First could well see the floodgates open in the near future, as other tastemaker artists / labels do whatever it takes to create commercial viability / visibility for their physical products.
The albums is of course available in the traditional formats, but I’m sure though that Goldfrapp’s longstanding relationship with Big Active will have no doubt forced the creative issue.
Still trying to understand what the hell these political parties are really on about? There’s an app for that.
3 televised ‘debates’, numerous pseudo-scandals and a roll out of pseudo-celebs can only mean we’re no less than 2 days away from deciding (through apathy or the ballot box) who’ll be running the country.
The Liberal Democrats enter the world of applications with one that looks like it was cooked up in the late 90′s. Substance over style would be the argument here though me thinks, but when did substance last win an election?
The manifesto app is yet another interesting example of the role technology has to play in reaching new audiences. I guess the full page manifesto was never going to be sexy enough.
