Wieden's Wood

For this years Christmas card at W+K they have decided to go down the environmental route and have produced a website where everyone is welcome to grow their own tree and decorate it as they want. You have to water it every day (bit like a tamagotchi) and all the trees live in Wieden's Wood. Here's what it looks like.

And here's what my tree look like

We've also designed the window in line with the website to promote it using recycled internal waste. One side is painted like to look like the site the other is honest showing what the set is made from.

Vinyl Figures

We have started to look into patnering up with a designer called Eddi who owns his own comapny manufacturing Vinyl toys in Shanghai. He's done some work with the Shanghai office and David and I were introduced to him a month ago. We are about to start designing some characters with him which is really exciting. Here is an example of his work. Click here to seemore.

Campaign Party

Today was the Campaign Dinner Party at Wieden and Kennedy. David and I were asked to think about how we could exhibit the Wieden and Kennedy year book of 2007. We came up with a few ideas for the party but really pushed one which consisted of 300 helium baloons, where each one held one page of the book. The result was a sea of floating pages above the dining room table for people to look at. Here are some snap shots of what it looked like.

New to Wieden and Kennedy

David and I started our new venture at Wieden and Kennedy to bring our 3D backgound to the table. We've had our first week and have met some really inspiring people. We got our first three briefs today. Lets see how we can twist them. Does it have to be a billboard? Really looking forward to seeing what we can achieve.

Howies Blackboard Van photos by Jamie Stoker

I was sent some photos of the van in the post on the weekend from Alison at Howies.

Here's Alison on the skate tour with the van in the background. I came up with the idea and Alison made it happen. I looked through all the photos and thought I'd post a couple of my favourites by Jamie Stoker. Really nice shots.

I'm going to submit the van in for next years D&AD awards and I'm thinking I might have to use a couple of these shots. Jamie Stoker if your reading this can I have your permission to use these? Thanks. Loving your work.

Happy Halloween

A new edition to my bin bag range. Coming to the shops very soon.

Loving this

About a month ago my girlfriend and I went down to see the ambient media stunt for London inked by Mother which resembled an oversized swimmer with a tatoo on his back advertising the TV programme.

This is Laura Whispering something in his ear.

Here's how they built it.

How much!!!???

For those who are wondering how much the chair was sold for here is a video of it being sold. Click on the image to see more

BBC covers the Auction

The auction that the Chair is in, is mentioned on the BBC website at the moment.

Of course the fact that BANKSY is selling 10 of his pieces of work in the same auction is the focus of the article. Still it gets people to the auction. You never know BANKSY might put a bid on the chair. To seemore click here.

Auction Preview

Here are some of the photos of the preview auction at Bonhams. It was amazing to see the chair amongst some of the biggest names in art and design. From Ron Arad to Banksy and Damien Hirst, some amazing pieces of art and design were on display. Wednesdays the auction so fingers crossed it does well. Whilst we were there we met some really interesting people. We are debating whether the guy in glasses is a certain stencil artist. Do you know this man?

Scratch London

I did this installation 4 years ago, I've been meaning to post this footage of it for a while. Only now have I found time to upload this film of the installation onto You tube.

Scratch London was commissioned by the OXO Tower and Totally London. Frames were scratched out and left blank for the public to draw their view of London, resulting in a completely one off window display design.

Scratch London was shortlisted for the Bombay Sapphire 2004 international glass prize.

Last couple of scribbles

I went to meet my girlfriend the other at Westbourne park and got a phone call from Alison from Howies letting me know that they were doen at the XBOX skate park with the van so I popped down to check it out. It was on the last leg of the tour and it looked great with everyone's comments. Apparently Green Peace phoned Alison up to say how great the idea was. I was really chuffed. So from what was a sketch in my little note book had now turned into a physical living thing that people can interact with.
