We do love a bit of stop-motion animation here at Shillo HQ. When it's combined with spooky Halloween characters we love it even more! And even though here in Oz we shun Marmite in favour of Vegemite, we're still pretty smitten with this campaign.  ...

Absolutely loving the embroidered typography by design duo Maricor / Maricar. They describe themselves as makers of things assorted, embroidery, animation, design and illustration. And sometimes, all at the same time! Fall in love. Get inspired. And if you can, see them when they present at the Field Trip conference this December....

Absolutely loving these guys at the moment — even more so after their scintillating live show in Camden last night. Of Monsters and Men are musical geniuses (genii?), something akin to Arcade Fire with piano accordian, trumpet and timpani action aplenty. I see they're doing a fair bit of touring around Europe in t...

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?
