watch: david bowie’s note to the creative you

do you miss david bowie as much as the rest of the world? can you believe he’s been gone over a year now? here’s a lovely message from DB that should get you through the day.

watch: crème caramel, by canada

nowness is a vortex. like, get on nowness.com at 11am for half an hour, and it’s suddenly 3pm. that kind of vortex. and, this is exactly the kind of content that grabs you by the heart, leaving feeling great at the other end. like a hug from the inside.

now, forgive us for posting content which is two years old (it might as well be two decades old in internet time), but it’s a goodie, if you haven’t seen.

soon: a photo journal by john respondek

the editorial blood in me dances at the smell of ink, spread across freshly sliced paper with a hint of glue in the bindings. why wouldn’t your feet tap? it’s simply just the best! i use to make 11 magazines a year, and now that i make zero a year, any opportunity that lands where i get to design editorial, i just… it’s too much!

we’ve been working with the lovely surf photog, john respondek on his book of  pro surfer, dion agius for a bit, and it’s finally off the press! it’s been an on-and-off kind of project for a while, but it’s a done deal.

more soon! – shin

2017: time to get it

ever bothered with a new year’s resolution? us neither! in place of a list full of inevitable coulda-woulda-shouldas, here’s one simple promise; 2017 will be bigger. 2016 wasn’t the best year for the world, and, while our year as lowercase wasn’t quite the tour around candy land either, it was loaded with great lessons. sure, we lost sleep, got a little greyer, and now burdened with a crippling addiction for red bull. but we’ve also learned to take a breath, learned to let go, ironed out some work flow issues, and did you know that red bull comes sugar free? we’ve realised nothing is a sprint, rather, a strategic well-paced marathon. we’re just gonna keep climbing as we were, and grind away at an ass-kicking year.

of course, 2016 would have been impossible, without the support of all of our amazing clients. to the new and old. we’re v thankful, and here’s to a bitchin’ 2017!

now, let’s get it.
