D&AD 2014

Stunner. D&AD awards opener, headed up by Pandayoghurt.

The production kitchen

Super cute site – slow to load, but so worth it.

Dumb ways to die

This is brilliant!

The joy of books

Kudos to Sean Ohlenkamp, his wife and Type for celebrating “the book”.

Thank you, Steve.

1955 – 2011

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Stanford Commencement Address, 2005

Tiny Zoo

A timewaster, but I’m completely hooked.

Naomie Ross

Beautiful motion graphics reel by designer Naomie Ross.

The Wilderness Downtown (Arcade Fire)

I’m probably slow to find out about this, but this is one amazing interactive music video. It was sad to see that my old street now has high walls and security gates.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
