Holiday on the brain

Today is 10 working days till my longest holiday in 3 years (2 weeks). 
We just moved into a new house and the holiday vibe is in full swing. 
I cant wait to get the Transkei road trip going.
I found these pics and they just make me want to disappear into the wild, for some nature and fun times with good friends.

 love this look. See it here

Today I'm doing some self promotion. A friend and I started a site, it's a one page site and it's aim is to be used as a tool for people who would really like a website of their own but don't know how to go about getting it or just don't have the time. The purpose is creating one page websites, quickly and cheaply, but of coarse anything is possible.

There are set templates to choose from but you can customise them and get it to look pretty much as cool as you want it to.

Go check the site out here

I designed an coded the first 1 Page Wonder the other day.

Weekend Vibes

This is just a post to celebrate the weekend. I haven't done a fun post in ages and I don't really know why. Here are a whole couple of things that I found on-line that made me smile or inspired me.
Enjoy the weekend!

Coloures and textures to make me drule
Love how airy and interesting this living room is.

Ben Howard - Old Pine

Can't get enough of this song, so I thought I'd share it. 
After a rough / awesome weekend at Rocking the Daisies this is just about all I need for this Monday.

The Piano

I went to the coldplay concert last night in Cape Town stadium.
I have always loved Coldplay but my expectations weren't too high, I was actually more excited about the whole experience of attending the show with my friends and having a good time.

I was very impressed though the atmosphere was great!  Just wish they could have given The Parlotones a skip.

But the one thing that made my night was Chris Martin and that piano of his. What a cool piece of art.
It really made me regret the fact that I had to cell my piano to buy a mac while I was still studying. 

Steve Jobs

Today is one of those days in history. A day where we have to stop for a moment and reflect.
Steve Jobs is one of those guys who literally wrote history. All I can say is thank you, my thoughts are with your friends and family. Rest in Peace.

Steve Jobs
1955 – 2011
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride … all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
—Steve Jobs, commencement address at Stanford, 2005

The only people for me are the mad ones,
the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved,
desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or
say a commonplace thing,
but burn, burn, burn,
like fabulous yellow roman candles
exploding like spiders across the stars
and in the middle you see the
blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes “Awww!”

—Jack Kerouac, On The Road, 1957

Submotion Orchestra

Hymn for him
This is the acoustic version of the song, this girl's voice gives me goosebumps. 
If you love the bass as much as me, put on some serious headphones and go to this link.
And while you are there you might as well just listen to all of it. Enjoy!

I did a quick poster yesterday for the food aid going to Somalia.
I'm glad I could do my part in some way.

Typewriter Art

"27-year-old Keira Rathbone from London, first started experimenting with typewriter art when she was in university. She bought an old typewriter from a flea market in the hope that she would soon use it to write something. By the middle of her first year at the university, she hadn’t come up with anything to put down on paper, so she decided to use it as a drawing tool. The first results were promising, and young Keira quickly realized she would be exploring this new art form much further."

This is not my personal style, but I still think its really impressive!

Madiba Day

The overarching objective of Mandela Day is to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better, and in doing so build a global movement for good. 
Ultimately it seeks to empower communities everywhere. 
Take Action; Inspire Change; Make Every Day a Mandela Day.”
Individuals and organisations are free to participate in Mandela Day as they wish. 
We do however urge everyone to adhere to the ethical framework of “service to one’s fellow human”.
Visit to find out more.

Being an African is something very special to me, we get to fight for what we want and believe in and I believe that shapes personality. 
More than just being a freedom fighter, Mandela inspires many different areas in life.

He even has an impact on fashion with those amazing once off patterned shirts he always wears.
And lastly he inspires me. 
I just combined this great image with a quote. 
I apologise for not crediting the photographer but I can find the original.

Sometimes I also feel it's absolutely necessary to go just a tiny bit bonkers.

Guerrilla Tactics

I designed a poster and flyers for a Guerrilla Tactics event by golden guerrilla. There have already been other currencies used in previous flyer designs, it's such a brilliant idea because it catches your attention immediately. I really hope to work with these guys some more in the future.

Christmas in June

 Someone want to come to the loo with me? . . .  Anyone?! please

In the middle of june we went up Matroosberg in Ceres for the anual june Christmas held at the ski klub. We hiked up in knee deep snow to a hut built in the 19230s. The hut was fulled to capacity with a lot of very interesting people of all ages. We drank lots of steaming hot guvine, exchanged prezzies and had some really awesome conversations. This was an experience I will never forget and I hope to make this a tradition.

My friend, Jodi Henning, and I did this site for an NPO. I designed the logo and template with some hand drawn Illustartions.
She did the difficult part, the coding.
It's nice to do something for free for a really good cause.
