The Tweed Run

A friend pointed this out to me yesterday; “Dandy cyclists and spiffy highwheelers will again take to london’s streets for the third annual tweed run” – It struck me as being both marvellous and ridiculous. A fantastic idea, shame I won’t be at home on April 9th, but if you are around, check it out! Looks like a lot of fun!

Don’t Forget Your Friends

Unmissable, playful design from Profero;

“To Celebrate the 30th Birthday of the Post-it note, we created a Facebook Game to remind people what’s most important to us. Our friends. In an age were we are defined by the amount of Facebook friends and twitter followers we have we wanted to challenge people to prove how many of these friends they actually knew. Giant oversized Outdoor Post-it products drove people to the site.”


Honey & Mackie’s Ice Cream

Designed by Wink, this identity and packaging design encompasses a child friendly image but appeals aesthetically to a much wider audience. Fun, striking visuals.
