Check out photographer J Bennett Fitts. He does some fantastic landscape shots and I love his series with abandonned swimmingpools “No lifeguard on duty”.

Well we’re a bit past Christmas but I wanna share this piece with you anyway. It was done by award winning London agency Purpose for newly started printers, Greenford Printers. The company needed a memorable way to selfpromote and at the same time wish clients a Merry Christmas. I love the idea of this piece, and what a treat too!

Visit Purpose.

Askul by BVD and SDL

More stuff from Japan today. I’m bringing you Askul, which I have briefly mentioned before in the context of SDL but I think you should see this brand in all it’s glory. The funny thing about it is that the range is designed by Swedish design agencies BvD and SDL but Scandinavian and Japanese style do seem to fit each other like……sorry, can’t think of a good design metaphor. Anyway, they fit!

From Japan with love

Well I figured I’d share a few bits and pieces from my trip with you all. I love Japanese packaging and I’m amazed that so many products have faces and personalities. Like this series of cleaning sponges and cloths. Yes, I know I’m a nerd for carrying this stuff home with me.

Fresh back from Japan and Hong Kong and I would like to share a few things I brought back with you. First up is the most amazing book by French graphic artist Marion Bataille. It’s called ABC 3d and is the most amazing folding book. It’s like a chicldrens book for adults, and a visual orgasm for a graphic designer!

I bought this book in the most wonderful children’s bookstore in Tokyo called Crayonhouse (sorry no website, but it’s in the area of Omotesando).

Enjoy the little movie of the book below.
