Jaqk Cellars

Jaqk Cellars

Quite frankly, I wouldn’t care if this wine tasted terrible… the packaging and the overall concept is just delightful. Jaqk Cellars have a ‘packaged’ marketing approach – they sell really great merchandise (including beautifully designed packs of playing cards, of course) along with their varied wines. Have a look at their website and online store here.

Unusual, tragic and alive

Unusual, tragic and alive



Who out there is cottoning on to the Tumblr phenomenon at the moment? My good friend Amy has a delightful Tumblr site, and then this week whilst researching for new brand direction for a client, I found one displaying these pictures and thousands of others like it by a young lady by the name of Andrea. The collection makes me want to drink beer, laze around in the sunshine, go on long road trips, listen to Joy Division and be seventeen again. The clever young contributor uploads posts really frequently, so there’s constant inspiration to be found. Check out the many other lovely pictures at this link.

Why do I feel un-hip for being in a hemisphere not going into winter? I was looking for imagery for a mood board the other day and came back to Earnest Sewn, which is one of my favourite stores in New York’s Lower East Side. Their aesthetic is classic, rustic and just a little nostalgic. Here are some of the spreads from their latest lookbook.

There’s something about having a collection of little things, no matter how ordinary or extraordinary they are, which is immediately interesting and inspiring. Who’d have thought that you could draw up a colour palette based on a collection of bread tags, for example? More at “A Collection a Day“, blog by Lisa Congdon.

I’ve never been to Vegas, but if I did I would make sure I’d get myself along to the Neon Museum. Photos from Flickr, click here or here for more.

Bloody wish I’d thought of that. Check out these sugar sachets by Mouse Graphics. So sweet.

There’s something really great about using something which has already been created, to being made into something new. Have a look at these lovely illustrations available at etsy by Carambatack.

Travel with Words, Meet the World

Travel with Words, Meet the World

Pictures from a word… is exactly what happens when we’re reading.

Amazing how the simplest of scaling, rotation and positioning of letters create easily recognisable icons of a city.
These clever advertisements were designed by IESP, Brazil for Penguin Books.

Off the wall

Off the wall


Anke Klevjer, a good friend and talented artist, is currently living in Varanasi, India, where she is running art workshops, helping out in the local community and dedicating her time and creativity to decorating the walls of this ashram. Incredible attention to detail… something we miss sometimes when we’re on our Macs, churning through projects to meet deadlines!
