hitotoki: New York Launches

We’ve posted about hitotoki a few times before, but I think this wonderful website deserves more credit. hitotoki: New York has just launched! Go and read some tales from the big apple now.


Flat Futures (Digital Papers)

If only this were real! Flat futures, the MA project of Miquel Mora, shows how digital paper could be interacted with in order to provide meaning to the user. One of his examples shows a paper alarm clock which switches off when it is scrunched up. My favorite though is the memory envelope (via CR Blog) which shows the recipient where the letter has travelled on it’s way to them via gprs.



Citizen:Citizen is an art concept/store created by Ju$t Another Rich Kid (Ken Courtney) and Tobias Wong. The website an experience unto itself. You, as the user are left to explore it’s vastness in a non-linear way, encountering many images and feelings before even seeing a product.



Everyone loves stickers! Wallspankers is a free quarterly zine with hundreds of stickers that you can print off yourself. Issue four, the summer edition is out now. So go and grab yourself some free art to decorate your space with.



Those of you who read Wired magazine may have already seen this but I think it’s worthy of a re-post. Readymech are a series of flat-pack cardboard toys ready for you to download and build for free. There are some really great designs there by artists such as Dro and Jules and the whole series is brought to you by the wonderful designers over at Fwis.


Candy Issue 8

Candy Issue 8 is out and it’s their second birthday! This issue is the no theme issue. Filled with goodness from Jeremyville, Tiffany Bozic, The Designers Republic among many others.

Go. Read. Enjoy.


Blog Action Day

So this is quite a good idea, Blog Action Day invites blogs worldwide to unite and blog about one important issue on October 15th, 2007. I think this is a great way to raise the profile of world issues and the reach of this could be phenomenal. With some big names in the blog world like lifehacker among others (it was a big damned list and I couldn’t be bothered scanning it all to find another big name blog, but they’re in there!) this has the potential to be very big. Needless to say this blog will be participating, and if any of you guys have blogs then it’d be cool if you did too!


Last Exit To Nowhere

Being a bit of a film geek, Last Exit To Nowhere is awesome. As they say on their site:

“home to a collection of unique shirt designs which are inspired and pay homage to some of the most memorable places, corporations and companies in 20th century fiction – from the sunny shores of Amity Island (Jaws) to the frozen climes of Outpost #31 (The Thing).”

I especially love the Tyrell Corp & Weyland-Yutani (from Bladerunner & Aliens respectively, and shown above), which are two of my favourite movies ever.


Banksy vs Warhol

Damn, this is a treat. Two modern contemporary artists together in the same space, juxtaposed against and even imitating each other. Located in the Hospital Gallery in Covent Garden, London, this is what they have to say for themselves:

Campbell’s or Tesco? Grace Kelly, Muhammad Ali, Winston Churchill, Mick Jagger, Queen Elizabeth, The Beatles, Smiley Man police statue, Andy Warhol himself and others make for a potent cocktail of celebrity, satire and voyeurism. Upon contact opposing pictures are explosive for their contrast, even of the same subject.

Definitely one not too miss if you’re in Ye Olde London Towne. Check out Banksy vs Warhol…


Oslo Stil

In the same vein as Hel Looks (which we’ve covered previously) comes Oslo Stil, this time as the name suggests, showing street fashion from Norway. I’m undecided as to whether the Finnish or the Norwegian have the best dress sense so it’s easier just to say that these Scandinavians have style!
