Acacia by Extremis

A great outdoor parasol is a thing of beauty. Acacia by Belgian company Extremis offers a clever design with a small footprint. Based on its namesake tree, Acacia should be directed toward the sun. “The parasol-shaped crown of the African Acacia tree is an evolutionary adaptation to capture as much sun as possible with the smallest possible leaf canopy,” explains Extremis. Despite a small surface area, Acacia deflects the sun’s rays quite well. And after sunset, the parasol can be illuminated ...

Solar-powered home cuts a bold and sculptural silhouette in Melbourne

Minimalist Illustration : Ben the Illustrator

Ben the illustrator Obviously, this is a guy named Ben, another one who does illustration. Only he’s definitely not just another creative in the great pile of graphic designers. The About section on his site comes to attest to that. Instead of throwing together a bunch of cliches, he presents his identity as a creative in the form of an illustration. How many artist do you know that can pull this off? It may seem easy in theory but in practice it’s much, much more complicated. But it’s not jus...

Catching up with the latest Cotton Bureau t-shirts

New Cotton Bureau T-shirts I feel bad because I haven’t checked on Cotton Bureau for a while. I’ve just had a look at a few designs and instantly regretted not featuring them more often. That’s because I honestly enjoy 99% of everything they put out and wish I could wear all of them. Some of them don’t resonate with me because I’m not from the United States of because I cant see myself wearing a toilet roll on my t-shirt. But even for those designs, I can see the idea behind them and can apprec...
