Carousel

I stumbled upon Fillipo Marongiu‘s work and it was such a happy little moment. His designs for Carousel, a company that designs and operates casual dining restaurants are just so darned cute! They really make me happy :) A happy Monday to all!

The Q

Designed by Andreas M Hansen, the Q is the world’s first social camera. In today’s world we’re all about connecting and sharing no? This very hipster/cool/clever invention has amazing design aesthetics all round. From their advertising to the product itself and all its applications.

I particularly like the Q’s manifesto:

To get the most out of life, you have to embrace the new. There are new places, and new people. New experiences, and new feelings. New highs…and new lows. But it’s always worth giving it a shot. After all, if we never did anything out of the ordinary, then no one would have any stories to tell. We wouldn’t be able to make moments special. Memories wouldn’t be worth sharing. So, it’s a good thing we can make the ordinary extraordinary. Because if you don’t limit your expectations, you’ll find that there’s no end to the possibilities. You can do the unexpected. You can go the extra mile. You can live in the moment. So give it a shot. Shoot for the sky. Shoot for the stars. Just shut up and shoot.”

Nikon Photo Contest Trophy

Ooh this is so cool. You must look at this coolness.

Every year since 1969, the Nikon Corporation organizes The Nikon Photo Contest, an international photographic competition. This year they commissioned the very cool folks at Anonymous to conceptualize a rebranding exercise for the competition. (Yay rebranding exercises always mess with my head and make me see things from a whole new perspective of what a brand could be).
So Anonymous designed a new logo for the photo contest inspired by the universal act of framing an image with one’s hands. I love when ideas are simple like this. How clever is that?! The logo is now a fancy yet minimalistic trophy which looks cool from about eleventy-five different angles. And look at all the pretty colours they come in!

Stop Phubbing

How does one creatively market a dictionary? McCann Melbourne created a brand new word to do so – “Phubbing – the act of snubbing someone in a social setting by looking at your phone instead of paying attention.” They created an an entire site and a Facebook page dedicated to their very own word. Their interactive site is quite cool although it does go on for a bit too long.

Candy coloured candles

Time for some pretty packaging people. I want to eat these candles by bella j. Something about the colours makes me think of candy. Hip hip hooray and Tie-dye are my favourites. The delectable designs are by New York based artist Sujean Rim. These lines in her about section kind of just made my day – “As a kid, I loved running around my cement backyard and enjoyed Sundays, when I could read Charles Schulz’s Peanuts in the paper and watch Bugs Bunny all morning with a giant bowl of Cocoa Pebbles. Comics, cartoons and picture books inspired me to draw and want to be an artist. I wanted to be everything from a painter to a sculptor.”

Towel Folding Infographics

Look no further. I have found the answer to the question you have been asking all your life – how do they fold these napkins like this?  Terry Fabrics has come up with a towel-folding infographic that teaches you how to fold your towels in the shapes of animals! I’m going to try the mouse and the crab. Everything else looks like some serious origami that I cannot fathom.

Hotel Daniel & Daniel Paper

Welcome to a world in and of itself. Known simply as Hotel Daniel, the establishment is a designer’s dream. Created with style and indie goodness, the hotel has a hammock in rooms and art on the roof. Even better, Daniel Paper – a beautifully crafted magazine filled with the very best of the hotel. I do love me some crisp publishing design. This has made it to my list of must-see places!

1000 Lives

I love me some good artistic film. Christian Dior has launched “1000 Lives”, a new Dior Homme film featuring Robert Pattinson. It captures a character so beautiful in hidden moments that feel like memories.  It makes me want to spend a weekend with my camera, exploring everything everywhere.

Jacopo Rosati

Felt is in. Jacopo Rosati has taken it to a whole new level.  The Italian illustrator has created a large collection of colourful designs made of plain felt. Snipping and trimming them into works of art. I can almost feel the fuzziness just looking at the editorial versions. And those x-rayed felt bones are so adorable.
