October 20, 2007 — where we play
There’s a nice new(ish) blog run by Garus Booth called ‘where we play’. It covers a good range of topics, gets updated very frequently and looks good. We’ve added it to our Style section.
September 10, 2007 — Design events in London
This weekend two very interesting events, Open House London and The London Design Festival (which lasts until 25.09.07), come to London.
In particular Designersblock and the Goldfinger Project at [space] in Hackney sound promising. Trellick Tower designed by Ernš Goldfinger can also be visited through Open House London.
July 22, 2007 — Super-Kamiokande
Thanks to a post on the excellent Pruned, I’ve come across some amazing images of the Super-Kamiokande (a detector for cosmic particles 1,000 metres below ground in a disused mine) at Kamioka Observatory, ICRR (Institute for Cosmic Ray Research), at the University of Tokyo. Truly incredible.
July 16, 2007 — Hartmut Nägele & Peter Günzel
I realise that recent posts have been quite photography-heavy, but I can’t ignore two such outstanding talents, especially since both are very nice chaps indeed!
July 08, 2007 — inpholio
inpholio, an international database of photography-related services, has just been launched.
The work is being presented in a clutter-free and restrained way, and although some of the categories are still a bit sparse, the photography and agencies sections are definitely rich and of very good quality. It’s early days, but it looks very promising already!
July 06, 2007 — Helga Steppan: Be long a part
Swedish-born artist Helga Steppan’s solo exhibition entitled ‘Be long a part’ is currently on show at Man&Eve Gallery in Kennington, South London. Beautiful large-scale photographs and a lovely exhibition catalogue make the exhibition well worth a visit. The show is on until 29 July 2007.
May 22, 2007 — indexhibit
I just came across this well thought-out and beautifully designed CMS created by local hero Daniel Eatock and Belgian programmer Jeffery Vaska.
Its functionality is quite basic (which is also one of its main strengths), but it’s well suited for portfolio sites and very easy to use and install. Oh, and it’s open source too. (Thanks to Craig and Laura at Ravensbourne College to bring this one to my attention!)
Edit: Vaska assures me he is actually American and just lives in Belgium… and he is primarily a designer, as well as a programmer. Now it all starts making sense!
May 12, 2007 — Judge a book
April 30, 2007 — This week’s featured feed: Design Observer’s Observed column
A great little notepad of worthwhile finds on the internet by the heavyweights at Design Observer, most definitely one of the very best design-related sites out there. And they were so kind to mention us as well. Thank you!
April 07, 2007 — Guadalupe Ruiz Cifuentes Rihs photography
Very powerful, hauntingly beautiful—and in parts slightly disturbing (to my sensitive mind at least)—photography. Equally accomplished still lives and portraits.
March 22, 2007 — Graphic design on the radio
My former boss and design author Adrian Shaughnessy is presenting six one-hour shows featuring leading graphic designers talking about their work and playing music that has influenced or inspired them.
Shows on Resonance FM may sound a bit like they are being broadcast from a tin can, but they easily beat anything commercial available on the radio in the UK, so tune it if you can!

March 21, 2007 — Book type by Byggstudio
I’ve just come across these gorgeous type designs (through the manystuff feed - thanks Charlotte!) by London/Copenhagen based Byggstudio. Despite a distinct retro feel, they manage to avoid tired clichés and convince through their well-crafted simplicity.
There is quite a lot more interesting work on their website.
