Homeland withdrawal, try this? 

I really like this. Classic album cover art direction used to depict classic lines from my fav TV show of 2012. You can see more of them HERE seen via Flavorwire.com spotted by Alison Nastasi

Skipping zone 1 for a Boris bike instead

The tube is not only hot, sweaty and too crowded to get on. It also costs loads. A very smart chap (Oliver O'Brien) has clearly thought the same and drawn this map of London without the (expensive) Zone 1 tube stations. Boris bike the last mile or so and save. As most people discover on strike days its actually not that far to walk either

In the past I’ve analysed educational geodemographics, UK census data (see CensusProfiler) and London travel flows. I studied an MSc in GIS at City University London, before joining UCL’s Geography Department in 2008 and then moving to CASA..."

I love type (still) prt45

With so much tech we have endless options to create ugly type, but so little time to create the really beautiful and readable. This was seen on Seth Gaffney blog (http://www.elgaffney.com/)

Its hard enough dodging bikes in town as it is

This guy (J Ruiter) has taken an idea from a military camouflage project and produced possibly the hardest to see bike in the world. Much more from HERE

It is often said there is nothing you can't fix with duct tape

Now I really love this product for its ability to fix anything - and pretty much support the music industry for the last 40 years. However who would have thought there was such an opportunity for creativity within the product for a brand ad like this. My other favorites for its use include Thereifixedit.failblog.org

and special mention to the Ducti Wallet - $14.99 from here www.thinkgeek.com  or frankly its an easy self build see here; www.wikihow.com

Gift Shops

Philip Slade Museum of London

As a general rule gift shops present endless opportunities for cocking about. The new Museum of London is no exception. BTW the actual museum, in particular the new galleries covering London from 1939 to the present day, are excellent.

Whoooa Feast on the Bridge, a really top idea.

Beer, food, & tables all over a major bridge in the middle of London. Excellent. Part of a very top day we had at the recent Thames Festival.

Thames Festival: The Feast on the Bridge.
