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 […]

1000km by Atelier Olschinsky

It’s never too late ey? I just came across this beautiful set of editorial work by Atelier Olschinsky for their self-published Neverthless Magazine, shot at the 1000km Red Bull Ring in 2011. It’s the variety of angles and the beautiful washed-out post process that stood out for me, it’s real eye-catching and certainly different to the bog standard racing shots I’ve seen in the past. Racing is definitely usually portrayed as a masculine sport, it’s nice to see it softened up and a little more graceful in this collection. Hop on after the cut to see the full set.

Nike Football- Vapor Trail Cristiano Ronaldo

Film Review | Django Unchained

Film Review | Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino’s latest offering, spaghetti western blaxploitation movie Django Unchained, is one that has yielded much discussion in the past few weeks. Slavery, a topic so frequently tiptoed around by filmmaker’s, has been tackled with an affront that can surely be expected of any Tarantino flick. Here it forms the backdrop to an engaging revenge tale. Already proving to be very successful in America (at least, at the box office) there’s a lot to appreciate in Django Unchained. However, some moviegoers may be put off by Tarantino’s take on the horrors of the time.

 Introducing East London 8 Bit lane brick lane, pixels truman brewery

We’re a tad late with this one, but it deserved to be shared. Brick Lane has become synonymous with being a hub of creativity, fashion, art and unconventionally innovative advertising campaigns and the latest one has surely pulled out all the stops. Truman Brewery was temporarily transformed into an 8-bit heaven over the weekend complete with a pixelated black taxi, postbox and even a dog amongst other things to promote Disney’s latest animated picture Wreck-It-Ralph. If you missed it click through to peep the eye-candy, a delightfully nostalgic nod to the 80′s era of arcade games filled with classic gaming references that even the current generation of smart phone gaming infants would appreciate. Check it out after the break.

Throwback Thursday

posted by on 17/01/2013

It’s Throwback Thursday again and since it was her birthday yesterday, we’re dedicating it to Aaliyah- she would have been 34. Aaliyah was in a really good place in her career when she died at just 22, it’s a shame that it was only the beginning. Anyway, I’ve picked one of my top songs from her library, it’s from her debut album ‘Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number‘ and it was her debut single ‘Back & Forth‘. This one has got 90′s groove written all over it, watch Aaliyah in action after the break.

dawn richard album review goldenheart main

Earlier this week, Dawn Richard dropped her debut album Goldenheart, the first of a trilogy of albums. Currently sitting comfortably atop the R&B/Soul iTunes chart in the US, the 16-track album is a creative mixture of progressive R&B and electronic sounds- the result? A slick collection of music that plays like some sort of futuristic musical adventure. Quality. More after the break.

WWF Together iPad App

WWF Together iPad App

Just beautiful. I’m a big fan of clean interface design and when it’s done properly it’ll smooth as effortlessly as this. WWF‘s latest app for the iPad is flawless, the typography, minimalist design and transitions are wonderful. It’s certainly the best bit of UI design that I’ve seen so far in 2013 – the interactive experience brings you closer to the stories of endangered animals such as elephants, whales, rhinos, tigers and other species. You’ll be able to discover their lives and the unique work of the World  in a new engaging way that you’ve never seen before. More on the flipside.
