|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
Our Dr.Ink mugs came today. If you are still looking for a Christmas present here is your opportunity. We haven't set up a Paypal for those yet but drop us a mail if you want one (they are £6 excluding delivery).
29 November 2010 – Big Changes at Mind Design
Today we celebrated Johannes last day at the studio (at the Vietnamese on Mare Street). Andy already left three month ago but we haven't officially announced it. As a new member of the team Claire joined us. Welcome Claire! And a big thank you to Johannes and Andy. You guys made the studio what it is today!
26 November 2010 – Crepeman on the loose
Oh no, what have we created? Today we found out that our client Crepe Affaire turned the little animation we created for their website into a real live character, harassing innocent passers-by on the street. Watch out for some big smiley yellow thing chasing you with pancake vouchers!
