Then he’s the hero of the day
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no matter what they say

There’s Just Not Enough Transparency In Business Today

"In a world obsessed with superficial image it is a refreshing contrast to look beyond the surface and appreciate the stuff that surrounds us for what it is made of, not just what it looks like on the outside" 

English artist Nick Veasey uses x-ray technology to peel back the layers and peer inside all manner of subjects; people, objects, natural forms and animals
The work has an ethereal, otherwordly quality & yet the things he uses to create the pictures are familiar & even ordinary 

Nick’s work has won awards in every relevant photographic competition and shown in galleries around the world  

These elegant yet unsettling artworks are a perfect example of the fusion between science and art

For Nick Veasey, artistic inspiration came from an unlikely source
While working as a photographer/designer for morning television in England, he was assigned the monotonous task of X-raying soda cans to determine which ones contained a winning code for a contest sponsored by Pepsi

After three days without a winner, he X-rayed his sneaker for kicks
"It was a great image and I thought ‘there’s something to this.’ 
It was one of those life-changing experiences
I just left behind everything else I was doing”

Veasey spent the next three months working with scientists to refine his technique
He learned to gauge object density and structure by experimenting with a variety of materials including plastic, flowers, metals and people
Taking the utmost care with his living subjects
Armed with his new knowledge, Veasey easily transformed it into commercial success

His intriguing visuals led to assignments for Nike, Porsche, IBM, Bloomberg and the European edition of Time

He has created such a stir with his advertising work that his “Bus-wrap" image of a whole bus in X-ray had to be removed from the roadways as a safety precaution

Lately Veasey spends more time working for his company

Can’t See The Wood For The Specs

The wooden framed sunglasses by Shwood.
Though the brand already has some striking frames, they’ve teamed with the Boston based Bodega boutique store to roll out The Bushmills, a “historic” pair of wooden shades.

As standard Shwood uses Carl Zeiss lenses but for this Bodega collaboration, the team is using 100 year old White Oak barrels that once held Bushmills Irish Whiskey.
If you like what you see here, they are available in a limited count of 100 pieces 

The Bushmills are available at Shwoodshop.com & Bdgastore.com.

PUT A CORK IN IT CLIFF!


of the cork tree, which is harvested by hand without harming or killing the tree, kind of like getting wool from a sheep. 
Once harvested, the bark regenerates, making it a renewable and sustainable resource.
            

Cork is environmentally preferable to leather as it comes from a lower carbon impact source (tree bark) and does not use animal products in its manufacture (a vegan product).
The environmental concerns associated with leather include the energy and carbon intensity of generating animal products and the chemicals used in the leather tanning process that can be damaging to human health and the environment. 
Cork is a naturally beautiful and a greener alternative to leather.

               

To make CLIFF belts, layers of cork are laminated to fabric, creating a durable, lightweight and supple material.
Each belt is handmade and individually crafted.
How does it wear? Our cork wears beautifully over time, distressing much like leather but without the weight - it can even be machine washed at 30˚C.
Due to the unique nature of the material, our belts fit very comfortably and cast a thinner silhouette than most leather equivalents.

Angels are all around us                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

SaGa Design was founded by Saad Alayyoubi, a designer with master’s degrees in architecture and business administration. Saad’s work has been featured in Surface Magazine, the Beijing Biennale and the Center for Architecture in New York.

Our designs explore the boundary of 3d printing technology, producing beautiful intricate geometries that cannot be fabricated any other way.

The sculptural products we design are inspired by the exotic, organic structures found in nature.


                                                            

The Siri design competition

We have designed an accessory which slides onto the iPhone and serves as the ‘face’ of Siri. The androgynous face has a wry, elusive smile suggesting the machine knows something that the user does not  

Behind Siri’s all-knowing gaze, the glow of the iphone screen is visible through the sculpture, and the main buttons are still accessible even when the screen is obscured.                                                                                     

The design, when placed over the iphone, forces the user to interact with Siri instead of tapping on the screen to engage commands.

For more complicated tasks requiring the screen however, the phone can easily be slipped out of the top of the case.

We wanted Nike to be the world’s best sports and fitness company. Once you say that, you have a focus. You don’t end up making wing tips or sponsoring the next Rolling Stones world tour.
