Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Adidas Originals A/W11 Star Wars Collection

posted by on 03/07/2011

Adidas Originals continue their collaboration with the Star Wars brand to bring you their autumn/winter campaign.  It has been a long while since I’ve seen a fun campaign as such, I like how simple the shoot is- nothing complicated its quite cameo, quite tongue and cheek. I love the shot with Dark Vader and the kids crossing the road, my geeky side is mildly amused. I also really like the green military style jacket with the orange detailing. Peep the rest of the images after the cut.

Gmail's New Look

posted by on 02/07/2011

Few days late posting this one up but ya’ll got bare with us now that we have full time jobs. I just woke up from a 10 hour hibernation – still feel tired but I think it makes up for the past 2 weeks non-stop working. One of the geek highlights of the week = Google‘s new updated look across their many web applications. Minor graphical changes always help evolve people’s use and experience of the web. What they are trying to provide is a consistent online experience, seamless across all their platforms. As a designer and a lover of minimalism – I love this new look. It’s clean yet colourful with the addition of small buttons, what do you guys think? Hop on after the cut to find out how you can get this new update.

Music Video | Tinie Tempah Ft Wiz Khalifa

posted by on 01/07/2011

Tinie has been doing his thing this past year. His rise to fame came quite rapidly after the huge success of his single ‘Pass Out’ and since then his career has gone from strength to strength. So much so that he was able to release his debut album Disc-Overy over in the states where at its peak it claimed the #2 r&b/hip-hop spot and #3 rap album on the Billboard chart. Yesterday June 30th saw the premier of the music video for his second US single ‘Till I’m Gone’ featuring Wiz Khalifa. This, I think, is my favourite song by the British artist thus far but unfortunately I don’t believe there are plans to release the single here in the UK or Europe. If it does get a release the fact the song is only placed on the US version of the album would suggest an impending re-release of the set. Check the video after the cut.

Antonella Arismendi's Perfect Summer

posted by on 01/07/2011

Summer time fine. I love the warmth of the summer – the colours & golden sunshine make for excellent photography moments. Antonella Arismendi perfectly captures these moments – her work here is magical and the models add to a sense of mystique to it. I don’t know what it is – I think it’s the colour editing and that ‘glare‘ she manages to capture so well in each of her photographs in this set. I want to capture my summer days like the way she has. I think summer has officially kicked off here, it’s never rained on my birthday before! 29 days to go. I expect presents. Rest of the set after the cut.

Giacomorelli 2011 Fall/Winter Collection

posted by on 01/07/2011

We do like to keep our fashion related posts relatively prize conscious but there are times when we see things that, even though we know we cannot afford, just have to be posted. Majority if the time the reason is due to the fact that our desire to attain the featured fashion in the post is at an all time high however this is not necessarily the case for this particular post. Giacomorelli have released a look at their impending 2011 Fall/Winter Collection, I had never previously heard of the brand before today but after seeing the collection I feel like i’ve seen all they have to offer before. And I have but just under a different brand name, is it me or do nearly all of these styles bare a striking resemblance to Christian Louboutin? See the full line up after the cut.

Slow-Mo Vibrations – See The Unseen

posted by on 01/07/2011

This is absolutely incredible, such a simple concept but so well done. Ever wondered what process such as metal welding, dog spraying water and a coffee cup giving off fumes would look like in a 1000 frames a second? No? Yeh probably not but it looks pretty damn cool here. Fluke Corporation are the brains behind this – they’re a  company that manufactures and distributes the electronic test tools and software. I’m guessing they had a play with a new piece of kit – The Phantom HD camera. I’ve never heard of the make or the camera before but I can tell it must cost a bomb. Google tells me just to rent the camera for a day it’ll cost you $2500. Eeesh. Watch the video on the reverse.
