Comments Off on OrticanoodlesGraffiti


Orticanoodles is the work of Alita and Wally, a pair of Italian graffiti artists who produce some truly amazing stencils through which they generate pop art influenced images that decorate urban walls, skate half-pipes and canvases. I was hoping to purchase one of their works but alas they are a little out of my price range. It would be great to see them produce a set of silkscreens based on their stencil work, I might be able to afford one of those.

The FP

Comments Off on The FPMovies

In a post-apocalyptic ‘Mad Max’ like world created by the director duo the Trost Brothers problems are solved ‘Dance Dance Revoloution’ style. All you need is a bench, the backing of your crew and a bad ass eye patch. We feel strongly compelled to see this movie and maybe throw a big crazy video game dance party right afterward.

PS: This trailer is NSFW. So now you must watch it immediately.

The Greatest Movie Ever Sold

Comments Off on The Greatest Movie Ever SoldAdvertising

Alright, I am totally going to have to see this and you should too if you have ever worked anywhere near, in or around advertising which should pretty much encompass all of us in the creative industry, at least those of us who have had to work on a commercial project, so like I was sayin’ pretty much all of us. Ironically actually, I think Morgan Spurlock himself was once a graphic designer. So go figure.

Poster Aid Controversy

Comments Off on Poster Aid ControversyGraphic Design


Writer John Pavlus has asked a question that has sparked a healthy debate amongst the design community over the creation of postera to spark aid for disasters and has used James White’s (Signlenoise) recent poster which raised $7,000 for charity as the crux for his argument. It’s caused quite a stir if you scroll down the read the comments, and to be honest we have struggled so far with what the right reaction to our concern over Japanese crisis should be as a studio. We thought about creating a poster but immediately felt mixed emotions about doing so for the very reasons Pavlus raises but we also see the positive in creating something that inspires people to give who otherwise would not. It’s an interesting debate. What do you think?

We decided probably the best thing we could do was just post a link to donate to charity which you will now see to the right of the blog until we think it’s the right time to take it down.
