Durex Naked Box Competition
Today while I was doing some Easter craft with my daughter I took this shot of colourful water balloons before we turned them into Easter eggs. Tonight while browsing the internet I came across the Durex Naked Box competition and thought what a great match. So I submitted my design and called it 'Durex No Strings Attached'.If you want to submit your own design you can do it here.
Oh how I love this: Moleskine the legendary notebook is publishing a new series of illustrated notebooks of contemporary architects. It must be like reading a secret diary, the drawings, sketches, scribbles and notes look so personal. What a great insight into the mindset of these architects. The first four books of the series called 'Inspiration and Process in Architecture' have been published in December 2011 and feature Zaha Hadid, Bolles+Wilson, Alberto Kalach and Giancarlo de Carlo (what a great name).
You can win one of the booklets here.
If you are not a lucky winner you can order the books online at the Moleskine shop from their website.
Rocking the tattoo world
Are you fed up with boring temporary tattoos that your kids seem to love that much? Then have a look at this website. I love their designs, they are fun, cool and stylish. Each tattoo comes as a set of two and costs $5 plus shipping cost of $2 outside the US. Just in time for Easter they have 'The Easter Carton' is great for little and big kids.
'Live is too short to wear ugly temporary tattoos.'
Beautiful sans typeface from a German designer named Christopher Stahl. Amazing, his names sounds like his typeface looks.
The last Peanut comic strip was published exactly 11 years ago. Charles M Schulz died the day before on the 12.02.2000. I did not know much about how popular and influential this comic strip has been in the America of the 1960s and 70s. I have learnt about it this weekend by reading "Discomfort Zone" by Jonathan Franzen. What a great read, I highly recommend it to anyone who loves diving into characters, controversial views and colourful images.
