Two important conversations all in one day!!
On friday was going home after work, minding my own business then over heard one of those conversations (you'll know the one I mean!!) between two men as the second man got on to the train (they obviously know each other) and it goes something like this,
"How was work - coloured in anything yet, what is it you colour in????"
Couldn't help myself but intervene and quite politely ask the second gent - 'I take it you do design?'. We talked about "colouring in" - confirming to the first gent that colouring in is not ACTUALLY our job but a mere part of the creative aspect to everything we do.
I then chatted with the second chap and found out that he works for a very similar ethical and sustainable design agency like UHC where I am - we swapped business cards and I had a very interesting conversation; it just proves that where ever you may be a potential contact is within reach and you should make the most of it.

I have been asked to work with another design agency to do a complete re-brand for a company; here is my inspiration of some of the hottest and most latest advertising that proves to be in connection with the target audience but also makes a long lasting impression!

You will no doubt of heard of Mike Perry from his book, Hand Job : A category of type (which I might add it a fantastic collection of inspiration) but I have begun to appreciate and be more and more interested in his work that often feels so different and fresh compared to other designers in this style.
In particular I love the first image of a man holding several balloons with imitated faces drawn on - it is a really nice piece of communication, and I feel that it shows a deeper meaning of the subject matter than intended. If anything it makes me react - a cause that some design fails to!

I've been doing some cardboard research recently (for one reason or the other ...) and stumbled over this ... A beautifully crafted mac bag that is literally indestructible!!!
Would I buy one ... yes actually! Would you??
