advice_to_sink_in_slowly_logo

I think I have made it clear how I feel about the fantastic ongoing poster project advice to sink in slowly, which recent graduates of University College Falmouth create and pass onto first year students, since I have mentioned them before. If you enjoy them too, then you should pop over to Meighan’s blog (which is a great read btw) and sign up for her giveaway! Five lucky winners will receive a set of the five newest posters from the collection. This set includes works from Kareena Zerefos, Nigel Peake, Sian Williams, Barnaby Richards,and Oliver Sutherland. You can see for yourself why it’s hard to pick a favorite.

After looking at these designs I am already jealous of whoever the lucky people are who will win. 🙂

Check out lots of other poster designs at the advice to sink in slowly flickr stream or shop. Their website is coming soon too, so be sure to bookmark it. Enter the giveaway at my love for you starting tomorrow (October 10th) through October 13th, 2008. Good luck to all!


bottega montana spool stools

I love the pop arty fun that comes along with oversized everyday objects, so I went a little cuckoo when I read in Garden Design about these oh so lovely spool stools, designed by the two brothers Francesco and Marco Gillia. The brothers, originally from Italy, relocated to Montana and have set up a furniture studio there where, among other things, they craft these beautiful hand turned cedar stools and stain them in every color of the sherbetty rainbow.

I am not quite sure why this 23 second clip is on YouTube but you can see the pretty colors the seats come in on the video:

That bobbin hole in the center functions to draw water away from the tops of the stools, FYI.

zeitgeist clocks by mylumi

look at these abstract graphic zeitgeist clocks from the creative duo of kerstin nill and sebastian pehl, aka mylumi. designed in an old fashioned flip style, these clocks present a bold new image every minute of the day — literally. there are 1440 different combinations. kerstin and sebastian describe this distinct styling they call typology as “avant-garde and visionary.”
