Littlewhitehead Wants to Beat You up Visually

November 25, 2010

Christopher Jobson

A 2009 series, Sentient Orbs, from Glasgow-based littlewhitehead, who wants to “beat you up visually” which is probably my new favorite phrase.

Exhibi-Table for Books

November 25, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Love this slotted book table design by Lu Chieh-Hua and Cheng Tzu-Hao. The Exhibi-Table is designed to help share and recommend newly-arrived books in libraries. Seems like it might be especially successful in schools and universities. Or my living room.

Real Narnia-Like Wardrobe of Awesomeness

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

I would have been the most popular kid in grade school (and let’s be honest, probably high school too) if I had just had a secret Narnia room like this. Designed by Douglas Shepherd of Maple Seed Renovation in Portland who specializes in custom residential remodeling projects. I wonder if he could also build a fireman’s pole into the kitchen and a water slide from the roof? (via dornob)

Notebook Paper Bedding

This made me chuckle. Notebook paper bedding by RetroNana. If you’re the crafty type, you buy the fabric and make something awesome. For me. (via shewalkssoftly)

Monster Friends from Familytree

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

There are a couple of reasons I’m really excited to share these new Monster Friends prints from Familytree with you. First, their last series of posters sold out in less than three days so you probably only have about 10 more minutes to scoop up one of these for your bad self. Second, they glow in the freaking dark. Third, you’ve just gotta go to their web site and find the little light switch toggle beneath the posters to see them in the dark. That’s ten bonus points for their web designer.

Steven Brahms: The Survival Project, Evasion Studies

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Awesome, awesome, a thousand times awesome. Loving these images by NY photographer Steven Brahms. What you see above is just a smattering of his series The Survival Project that depicts people fleeing, hiding, evading, and fighting. Many more images on his site, and some of his work-in-progress over on similarprojects.com. (via beautiful decay)
