(vector graph book) Information is Beautiful – David McCandless

David McCandless has approached information display from a truly poetic perspective with his book “Information is Beautiful“. There was a time when a bar graph was the kind of thing that you slid across an overhead projector at a sales meeting between yawns. But today, information is the star of the show and should be presented as such. This book celebrates that.

It’s 256 pages of well thought out information visuals. Each one with it’s own personality and charm. Highly recommended for any designer with a desire to simplify their own work. I found it very inspiring.

Vector mobile phone

As high-tech a chap as I am, I draw the line at my cell phone. Although I am fully aware that the mobile is the pc of the future – I don’t care. I have seen my best friend’s cell phone bill break 4 digits. That’s not going to be me. I’m fighting the future as long as possible.

I have an old school mobile. Not exactly one of those bricks from the eighties, but close enough. It has no call waiting or call display. I don’t download music or wallpapers, and I’ve never sent a text in my life. But it dials numbers and I have a fixed rate of $39 a month to use it.

It’s a matter of time before I cave and buy something flashy. But until then, I am more than pleased with my outdated little buddy.

Vector classic microphone

Check one two. Check one two. Is this thing on?
Here is a sweet illustration of an old school microphone. It’s iconic in a way that really brings to life the theme of music. While everyone else is going high tech, wouldn’t it be nice to swing in the other direction just for kicks.

Vector illustration – DC Inferno

Just how bad is it? Well, I’ve learned never to ask questions that I did not want to learn the answers to. But it seems as though Washington is certainly “feeling the heat” these days. That’s where the inspiration for this illustration has come from (DC Inferno). Pray for rain. Lots of it.


Paris, France

I remember a time before video games when you had to use your imagination to keep yourself entertained. A cardboard box was the perfect fort. Well guess what kids – it’s coming back. Low tech, ethical, chic and great to play with, that’s the concept of the brand’s designer, Armelle Vetillard.

Do not underestimate children. This is the perfect canvas for little story tellers to thrive. Whether you are pretending to be a celebrity, bistro chef or mummy preparing a leg of lamb. There’s no end to the possible storylines with this contemporary theatre in reversible cardboard. These cardboard screens very quickly and easily become a game that has infinite possibilities.

It isasy to assemble, and very stable, the theatre consists of three sections which are printed on both sides; a floor-standing lamp and a cat on the living room side, and lots of fun utensils on the kitchen side! Plus, the television screen comes off and becomes a map of France to fill in on one side, and a drawing of a mini pop star on the other! And like a real theatre, your children can use their dolls or Action Man like puppets. Finished playing? The theatre folds up flat so it can easily slide under a bed or behind a cupboard.The theatre is made from 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard, made in France.
