Two Crazy ants having a Picnic...

African Digital Art

We are very excited to tell you about our feature on the African Digital Art weekly inspiration page last month! Really appreciate the shout out,  they feature some great things, so extremely happy to have been picked. Check it out here.

This kinda stuff makes us happy inside

These pics were taken just a few km's from us at the Porter Estate Produce Market in the Tokai forest. See higher res images and more happy shots on our tumblr account.

Downloads by us, enjoy!

We've added a special page to our site called free downloads and at the mo have 4 to offer. A back-saved .eps file letter set called 'Out to Lunch' and 3 wallpapers to choose from.

It's a start for now, let us know if you think it's special too and we'll keep it up on a regular basis.

PS don't go making billboards with that font on, it's only for non commercial use... if we see it, we'll be tracking you down, and when we find you, that beer and biscuit 'on you' is gonna taste good.

Oh, almost forgot to mention, spread the love and get your mates to join us on facebook and twitter!

Pushing the boundaries of Polymer

A little sneak peak for now, with more to come (maybe even next week).

We are going to be collaborating with Planet Press (a letterpress company) in the very near future. But we'd be even closer if we adhered to the guidelines and didn't try get too fancy pants! Note the lines around the lighthouse, they start to peel away from the base when it tapers too thin. Silly us, but you only have to make those kinda mistakes once.

How to make a documentary film festival poster

Think, a lot, think even more, narrow down the concepts to 3 and pic the craziest one of the lot. Be experimental!

Take lots of random shots for the blog. Drink some wine.

Take the camera off the tripod and forget to adjust the shutter setting.

Take a picture of a picture.

Choose your best shots.

Rework the best one in photoshop to the desired effect, I call this effect 'old school'.

Import the image into InDesign, mirror the festival details on the right-hand side of the image in a contemporary typographical style for juxtaposition and ease of legibility.

Design 2 more options for fun, because you enjoy it so much. Enter your submissions and wait patiently for the reply. Find out that you were…

Option 1: Successful, jump for joy while screaming like a little girl, prepare yourself for the hard graft over the next couple of weeks to get the remaining designs/elements together.

Option 2: Unsuccessful, do something opposite to jumping for joy while screaming like a little girl, pull yourself towards yourself and get back to work looking for work.

We'll find out which option it is tomorrow, I'll update this post when we've heard and let you know. In the meantime, keep those fingers crossed.

Best practice to keep y'all informed when I say I will, whoever it may be, even if it's just Ida's ma out in Sweden (miss you). Peeps, I know I wrote I would let you know, but we're still waiting ourselves... so hopefully I'll have the option down for you tomorrow!

...and the option is sadly number 2. Onwards and upwards we say!
