Back to posting on Friday! Hope you had a good week. Here are three things that caught my eye this week.
Have a good one.
PS: If you haven't booked a speaker for your year end yet, check out some of my talks.
1. A Life Jacket Inspired Flag
The flag for The Refugee Nation, ten refugees currently competing in the Rio Olympics, draws its colour scheme and design from lifejackets. Designed by Syrian artist and refugee Yara Said, the flag is orange with a single black stripe.
2. Homesick candle
the concept behind Homesick Candles, an American made item, hand poured and using a soy based wax that mixes some fragrances that is associated with some states. Smell being the most powerful memory trigger, this is quite something. I wonder what a Johannesburg or Bloemfontein candle would smell like?
3. A Notebook (with a conscience)
Found this link on my friend, Rich Mulholland's email signature, he is also one of the founders, which I didn't realise until today. The Human Writes notebook, a good designed hardcover notebook, thread-sewn and bound with 192 pages of Munken Pure paper.
Not only is it a good notebook, with dots instead of lines that allow for either drawing or writing, for every one sold they give 10 (that's right TEN) books to kids who need them. How great is that?
My favourite three, on a Wednesday, so the best of a week and half..
1. Pantone's new app
The ever cool Pantone has launched a new app PANTONE Studio lets users capture colours in everyday life translating them into the Pantone colours and allows for easy import into design software and such.
Always wanted to design using the colour of your grandma's old cardigan? Now is your chance.
2. OppiKoppi Posters
With everyone slowly, and carefully, returning form the ever dusty OppiKoppi Music Festival it's time to look back at the last 22 years' worth of iconic posters, featured on Between10and5. This one is my favourite, remember?
3. A Beautiful watch
The Autodromo Stradale is inspired by the interiors of Italian sports cars of the late 50s and 60s, and ain't it just the most beautiful thing?
This is by me, Pierre, each week I post three things that grabbed my attention, and that I like. You can also sign up for the newsletter version here
