Store sunlight in a Jar: SunJar

Ok it’s not Christmas and Easter is no more, but it’s never too early to put things on your gift wishlist. Well Sunjar by Suck UK is my first item. I mean just think about it. It’s a jar full of sunshine! No wonder it got the prize “gift of the year 2007”. While your at it check it the other stuff on their homepage. It’s well worth a visit and I’ve seen some of their product in Urban Outfitters in London.

Inspiration: Virb Profiles

I really don’t understand why virb isn’t more popular. It offers everything myspace does plus a lot more. It’s so easy to design the page even with only little knowledge of css.

I’ve compiled a list of 14 great virb designs which I want to share with you.

Inspiration: Snowboard Graphics

I was always impressed with the endless imagination used to design snowboards. Hence I put together a gallery of great snowboard graphics. It’s an endless source of inspiration and this is just the top of the iceberg.

Featured Artist: Daniele De Nigris

I’ve discovered this artist some time ago while I was browsing through BittBox’s Flickr Group. From his Flickr Profile we find out that he lives in Bolognia (Italy) attended the Corsican decorative painting at the State Institute Of Art of Bologna and then got a diploma in Graphic at the IED (The European Institute of Design) in Milan. His work can be described as colourful retro geometric art. It’s tough to really put a name on it so make up your own mind. Visit Daniele De Nigris Flickr Site.
