How to find the perfect gift this Christmas

Just in time for December, Boheem presents 'How to find the perfect gift this Christmas' – the ultimate go-to gift guide. This is for anyone who has ever, like me, found themselves in the quietest corner of the shopping mall (which, at this time of year, doesn't really exist) rocking back and forth, holding their knees to their chest and softly whimpering for not being able to pick something which really shows Dad how much he's appreciated. Or more recently, for anyone who finds online shopping more like a choose-your-own-adventure, where one link takes them to another, and another, until they're not at all Christmas shopping but watching silly giggling babies on YouTube.

To see the whole gift guide in its entirety (and as a bigger file) where there are more categories which cover sports, clothes and gadgets, head to

Laser Cutting

Currently trying to source an affordable die-cutting or laser-cutting solution for an annual report we are working on, and whilst researching, I found this interesting little business. Online Laser Cutting can cut almost anything: wood (lots of types), acrylic, paper, plastic, mattboard... and since they also promise to ship anywhere, apparently the only thing limiting your next laser-cut project is your imagination.

And by the way, if any one knows a great way of punching 143 x 3mm holes into paper for a larger run of 1500 A4 covers... I'd love to know about it!

A baby BOY for Kass!

Sorry I've been off-air for the last week or so... we've all been a tad busy since Kass checked out to have her baby! Little lovely man: I'm one of the lucky few who've met him already and he is very cute indeed. 

Peoni typeface used for this a little girly I know, but I love it and have been waiting for an excuse to try it. The boy thing is a bit new for us all... Sullivan is the first baby boy at Boheem after a run of four girls!

God's Fingerprints

Found these interesting little graphic studies recently featuring various bible verses. They're from, but the best place to see them all is on the associated Tumblr site. I think it's a collaboration, and although they rely fairly heavily on current typography trends and image treatments, I still like them. It's really just nice seeing these verses represented in such beautiful visual context. Think we can quite possibly find some inspiration there for the work we do for Scripture Union, a handful of Baptist organisations and UnitingWorld.
