Just what you always wanted…..


The joy of researching corporate gifts is that you come across things like this. Mmmm.


The perfect project notebook?


I’m a total notebook geek. I have a selection of Smythson notebooks for general musings (mainly lists of books and make-up I want to buy) but they’re almost too pretty to use – and inevitably to lose. I also like Moleskines for projects, but this Action Book from Behance might be the perfect solution – like a doodle pad, memo pad and Post It collection rolled into one.

National souvenirs


This display of souvenirs was in a hotel gift shop in Bahrain. I’m 

tempted to buy something for everyone for Christmas – the salt and
pepper pots are probably my favourite.

Mapping Stereotypes


I can’t remember where I first saw this link: Europe’s maps according to others (and according to the creator alphadesigner). Take time to look at them all – there is a lot of devil in the detail. Particular favourites of mine are Europe according to the USA and Europe according to Gay Men. The maps are available as prints.
