The Given Collective

iPorn…

May31

The Apple media machine is once again in full steam as it touts the latest Hoola-Hoop in its product range, the iPad. I am without doubt that this will become the latest must have gimmick for our product hungry world. At Least the influx of advertising means we get to see some actual creativity, the latest iPad ad leads itself perfectly to some great adbusting from Johannes P Osterhoff in Berlin.

Check after the Hop for detail Shots, Beware possibily NSFW:

Summer Days

May27

Today I am stuck in the office, bored and depressed with the crappy weather. I found myself dreaming of sunny afternoons, good times and summer dreaming. So here are some pics of the ultimate good times, the Z-Town boys. If you have never seen the movie, either the doccie or the hollywood piece, do yourself a favour and get it and slip away into summer.

More Chocolate Milk…

May26

Steri Stumpie is like a South African institution, so when they approached me to help showcase their new packaging and art direction I was more than happy to oblige. My little pack arrived and I must say I was quite impressed. The six-pack of Chocolate Steri’s (per my request) came in a snazzy little box, fulled with interesting goodies, such as badges, stickers and a Flavournation Passport. The best item however, was definately the Mr Steri Stumpie Head Sticker Pack, a pack of stickers which allows you to turn your empty Steri into a Mr Potato Head.

If you want to stand a chance to score yourself some free Steri Stumpie goodness and some “Steriphenalia” goodness, then head over to their site and check it out!

My Miami Ink Tattoo

May17

Yesterday I finally got the time to go and book my Tattoo, which was designed by Morgwn from Miami Ink. Thinking I would have to wait atleast a month to get a slot, I was more than a little surprised when I was told they could fit me in, in an hours time! So a big thank you to Garth at Wildfire for the Ink, the work was pain free and is looking siiiick!

These street signs are so innocuous that a stroll through your humdrum life would probably see them go unnoticed, however there in lies their brilliance. Hidden for all but the observant and delightful in message, these are pure win!
