If you're wondering what's with the wonderfully crazy window displays in Louis Vuitton at the moment (if you've seen the polkadot tentacles you'll know what I mean) it turns out they're the work of Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama. I was lucky enough to attend her exhibition at the MCA in Sydney back in 2009 and it was probably one of the most fun and interactive ...

Mathematics was never my strong suit, but as a designer I love looking at numbers. Do you draw your eight long and loopy, or as a snowman with his round head sitting firmly atop his even wider belly, or even some other way? Number of the Day indulges in my passion for the numbered form, with possibly the most comprehensive search func...

It's the middle of winter here in Oz, and I'm daydreaming about summertime. Lying on the beach, getting slightly too sunburnt, replacing creamy icecream for icy-cold snow cones! Lucky for the kids down in Melbourne, that's exactly what they'll be able to do come December. I'm loving the branding for The Snow Man&n...

A truly incredible identity from Bureau Rabensteiner for an Vienna-based photo pro­ducer. The stationery is unlike anything I've seen before - the black varnish fades at body temperature, so when you hold any of the pieces in your hands you leave your own individual imprint. I'd spend all day playing with that busine...
