I simply adore the style. If there would be only one brand to wear, BMB would be it. Btw, the music of the clip is by The Lovely Liar, AKA Tatiana Pajkovic.

Marimekko Weather Diary Collection


This Marimekko clip is quite rich in atmosphere. I reckon it opens up the design process on a very distinguished manner.

Searching for Sugar Man

YouTube Preview Image


I have always been extremely picky on what to watch on tv. My commitment to tv: I owned one back in 2007. I watch couple of series per year, some documentaries, some movies from my laptop. As I’m very picky, I hate being disturbed by advertising when concentrating on my carefully selected program. My criteria for movies/series/other stuff is basically the same I have for books: quality. That’s why I love YLE Areena and love to pay the tax for developing that extraordinary service. Searching for Sugarman, YLE Areena for two more days:

A Beautiful Closure



My new friend Kati had made this beautiful closure page for her presentation. I admire her eye for detail. Sorry about the quality of the photo, but I’m sure you get the idea. Have a lovely Sunday.

Day 37, Saturday 12th – The First One Down



Today we had the closure of our first course, design driven business. We all presented our last assignment. An exiting, fun and informational session. Turning Tables, Slow Furniture, 3D personalization, Creabis, exhibition service, mental health and design driven business… Lots of new ideas and inspiration, good discussions and feedback. A really good Saturday. Just to keep in mind the design driven spirit, here’s an iceberg to remind about the ratio between what we see and what’s the size of the entity.

Day 36, Friday 11th – The Design Beer



























I can’t remember the last time I’ve had a beer. Today I did, since there’s a design beer! Didn’t know that. First of all, I was impressed by the design of the bottle, because Estrella Damm InEdit has a shape of a wine bottle. The actual content is developed by  Ferran Adrià, Juli Soler and El Bulli’s sommeliers’ team. As one can expect, this beer is very tasty.

Day 35, Thursday 10th – The September Issue



Back to the old school scene, magazines. If there’s an institution in the international fashion magazine scene, it’s Vogue. The September issue, also called “The Bible” comes this year with 902 pages. The first 54 pages consists of advertising. After that, only maybe every second page is an ad. To be honest, I like quality advertising, but too much is too much. This industry and it’s print advertising keeps on repeating itself. A woman with a product, OR women with products. If there’s a man added, he’s kissing the lady. After reading my bible, I have absolutely nothing to say.

Day 34, Wednesday 9th – Tikker, The Death Watch

YouTube Preview Image


There was an article in Techcrunch about a death watch. A wrist watch that counts the days, minutes and seconds to the moment you die. Some creepy service design. They claim the idea being people realizing that the clock sure is ticking – make the most of your life! Who would be fearless enough to wear a watch like this?

Day 33, Tuesday 8th – Iris Van Herpen



My favorite brains-off-hobby is to read magazines, especially magazines for women. Gossip, celebrities, fashion, make-up and all that fluffy stuff. There’s basically _never_ nothing that exiting or new, it’s just good for relaxing. This time, I was surprised. I couldn’t get my eyes of from the designs by Iris Van Herpen. She uses 3D-technology. Her work looks quite amazing, it’s like from another planet. I recommend browsing her website, it’s just fascinating.
