The Burning House

Here's a thought: if your house was burning, what would you take with you? These charming little arrangements are made by contributors from all over the world, and then posted to The Burning House. They're snapshots about what's valuable, sentimental, beautiful and practical. Or maybe they're just expressions about people's 'personal brands' and the objects they feel best represent them.

The Decemberists

I've recently taken a liking to the folklore-esque music by The Decemberists, an indie band from Portland, Oregon. Today I thought I'd have a look around to see if their album and poster art are as creative and intriguing as their music... and happily, it is. Seems that the band employs a host of illustrators and designers for their many shows, and the result is a varying and charming collection of posters from around the world, which is apparently continuing to build.

Blue and green should never be seen...

...And yet sometimes these two said colours really do work well together, don't we think? This is the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition Strategic Plan, and it's hot off the press. AYAC is funded by the federal government and undertakes a range of activities including advocacy, research and policy development, youth sector development and youth engagement. We love an opportunity to get the felt tip markers out and have a play with some crazy typography!

THe Writers' Group website

We've recently completed a website for The Writers' Group, a collective of corporate copywriters who 'share a passion for words'. We're really enjoying working with the director, Siobhan, and are thrilled with how the site has come together. Check it out here.
