For some reason I keep coming across really cool chocolate, it’s quite bad for my weight! But must show you Chocolate Editions cause they did a chocolate pie chart which is super cool. Great way to suck up to your info graphics teacher :-) All their chocolate bars have really nice and simple patterns too.

I’ve been intrigued by the Ettore Guatelli museum in Italy for a while now, ever since I found the photos of the carefully collected compositions of things from rural culture. Then today I came across a series called “Sheds” by photographer Jasper White and thought the two very different projects (yet with the same subject) just HAD to be shown together. Tools CAN be beautiful!

My two kick ass colleagues Kat and Kej did a Christmas greeting project called “Little Baby Jesus Project“. The project is about alternative nativity scenes and they asked a handful of people to make their version to get the project rolling. You can see my contribution below, the TRUE story! ;-) So now it’s time for all of you to find that Christmas spirit and make your own nativity scene for the project.

Philips Cinema Parallel Lines

To celebrate the cinematic experience Philips announced the Parallel Lines Competition a while back. The competetion focuses on telling a story with fixed lines your way. The lines are: “What is that?”, “It’s a unicorn”, “Never seen one up close before”, “Beautiful”, “Get away. Get away” and finally “I’m sorry”.

So what can you do when the lines are already fixed, you might think, well you can do a hell of a lot. Just look at how different the top ten videos are Be sure to vote!

One of my faves is definitely “Honey Moon” but I also happen to know the creators so I might be a bit biased. Congrats to Tine and the boys for kicking ass and making it into the top 10 selected by BAFTA, Ridley Scott and Philips.

Streets of Tokyo

If you’re fond of architecture then Tokyo is a must see. Great architecture is so inspireing to me and it always inspires me whether it’s to fold a brochure differently or to choose a material. In Tokyo you will find so many great buildings, a lot of them heavily inspired by origami. Just check out the Audi bulding on Meiji-dori, a street running through the shopping area in Harajuku, or the Bvulgari building (one of my personal faves) on Omotesando. The Japanese appreciation of shape and simplicity definitely comes through and I love how it is not only huge buildings but also smaller recidential houses that are original. Check out this great selection.
