|16 February 2011 — Belmacz Shop update|
Since late summer 2010 Craig and Holger are working on the Belmacz shop and overall redesign of the identity. The identity is now finalized but the shop is not. However, we have already put up some work-in-progress images in the identity section and hopefully the shop will be opening within the next two months.
04 February 2011 — Book Launch at The Finnish Institute
Today we went to The Finnish Institute for the launch of 'Common Interest: Documents' a new design book by our friend Emmi. It shows some of our work among other great projects. You can buy the book here. Its worth it.
02 February 2011 — Back to Basics
Today we switched off the computers and turned the studio into a little arts and crafts workshop trying out potato stamps. We are working on a new restaurant project so there might be some food-related logic in this.
31 January 2011 – Another D&AD Award deadline missed
Today, despite receiving calls and e-mail reminders, we purposefully missed another D&AD Awards deadline and happily remain a non-award winning design practice. We also missed the TDC, ADC, Red Dot and all the other award deadlines and concentrated on work instead.
29 January 2011 — Mine Spotting
While working on the design for the first Belmacz jewellery shop Holger has developed a rather worrying obsession with spotting diamond mines on Google Earth. Images of those massive holes in the ground (like this one for example) will be part of the shop interior.
19 January 2011 — Talking at Saint Martins
We did a talk at Saint Martins College of Art showing our work and giving a bit more insight into the nitty gritty of production. We were happy that so many students came. Thanks for coming.
20 December 2010 — Happy Christmas
As Britain plunges into the usual yearly snow chaos (here the view from the studio window) the studio closes for the Christmas break. We are all trying to fly to our native countries (Germany, Switzerland, Ireland and France). Finger crossed and Happy Christmas everyone.
17 December 2010 – Playlab at The Dock
Playlab's little elves are running a DIY Make 'n' Do production line at the Tom Dixon Christmas Market. Drop by and make your own Christmas cards, tags and wrapping paper.
December 2010 – M for Microelectronics
We are building an illuminated version of Marawa's M logo using 63 small lightbulbs. Unfortunalely the three 9-volt batteries we connected last exactly 3 minutes before they run out of power. We should have listened to the geeks at Maplin.
29 November 2010 – Dr.Ink now for sale
