Pocket Knife?

This latest discovery comes on the eve of an incident that left me trying to pry the front half of my key from inside the door lock. That by all means wasn’t a fun experience, but what I found inside the Garrett Wade Tool Collection certainly is! Simple idea really, making one daily tool look like the other, but it achieves the desired visual effect. A perfect addition to a Father’s Day gift or something for that special handyman in your life.

Frankly, I just want one for myself…

The Transparent Car.

In Innovative Automotive Design, Innovative Design on April 27, 2010 at 2:22 pm

International petroleum company Shell has recently dismantles a Nissan 370Z, replicated all its 2000+ parts and created a completely transparent prototype of the car for it’s newest campaign marketing the Helix Ultra engine oil. The intricate idea was to clearly demonstrate the way oil travels throughout the engine. To say that we are a little impressed would be the understatement of the century. Sure, anything is possible when you’ve got a budget as large as one that Nissan can afford, but to be able to execute something like this is truly commendable. I think the creative minds in your design & marketing departments deserve a raise!

See the creative genius at work!

Banksy Strikes Again.

In Innovative Street Art on April 24, 2010 at 5:13 pm

For all Art & Design lifestyle enthusiasts, you would have to be living under a rock to not have heard about Banksy by now. Renowned for his incredible street art (graffiti) in the UK, Banksy has skipped the pond, made his famous mark on some walls in LA and now he seems to have reappeared in San Francisco! To this day Banksy’s real identity is virtually unknown. He is believed to have been born in 1974 and a native of Yate, South Gloucestershire, UK. Banksy’s artworks are often satirical pieces of art on topics such as politics, culture, and ethics. Having made his mark on hundreds of walls and having had a book published on his various street pieces, the artist himself remains an enigma.

If you are living in or visiting the States, check out Banksy’s Exit Through the Giftshop in select theatres. Watch the mini trailer here …
