The previous incarnation went down in a blaze of contention and glory. Brazen Bunch, Zap! Bang! and twenty%extra™ have bowed to the will of the people to bring back an event that never should have left in the first place.

Not to sound like an Old-Skool grandad, but Hip-Hop in its prime is an art form of humour, genuine emotion and boundless creativity. When it achieves those heady heights, it looks a lot like El-P’s Stepfather Factory from 2001.
A product for society becomes a product of society in this thought provoking (but ultimately slept on) addition to the nature vs nurture debate.

Mayer Hawthorne on vocals – singing a Tony Bennett classic with beautifully art-directed video and merchandise to match – can only mean another collabo pack from the niche marketing hit-masters over at Stones Throw.
It’s hard not to disappear into the carefully crafted slowmos, but if that wasn’t enough, the track comes loaded on a heart-shaped USB flash drive, thus ensuring that as my heart leaves for sunnier climbs, my wallet also leaves my pocket.
I’m a child of the 70′s and 80′s, which makes me fan of the A-Team, which makes me a fan of Mr.T’s van, which has meant a lasting romance with all vans of the same ilk, which in turn makes me an undoubted fan of Vans and the Places Where They Were.
Google Earth is more than a tool for checking out your neighbours geraniums. In the hands of Dutch designer Thomas de Bruin it’s a tool for developing a full font set – including capitals, lower case, numbers and punctuation – from locations all over the Netherlands.
Our Junior Art Director Jade reckoned it took him ‘like, for ever’ to find the whole font set. Apparently though it took him ‘about a week’, which makes it even more of an achievement. Type-nerds tip your caps please.
In an Absolut World, art sponsored by a brand have absolutely nothing to do with the brand and everything to do with art; as was the case with Spike Jonze‘s I’m Here. Being a big fan of Spike’s work, I was more than sceptical as to his motives for creating this movie.
