Trailer for Gary Hustwit’s new film, Urbanized. The Barbican have a week of screenings, 16-23 December 2011, tickets and info here. Big fan of Gary’s work and this looks amazing. Can’t wait.


Great short from the The Avant/Garde Diaries series, with blogger Peter Henderson talking about The Barbican, one of my favourite places in London.


Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design from Laurence King Publishing on Vimeo.

Short film about the new Saul Bass book from Laurence King Press. You don’t get to see much of the book, but what you do see looks amazing, as do the spreads from it at the bottom of the info page.


It is what it is and it is OMG amazing. The work of designer Christian Annyas, Movie Title Stills Collection is a MASSIVE collection of title stills from 1920-now. And it is amazing. There’s also a section dedicated to the work of Saul Bass, which is worth a visit on its own.


Because a) I never get tired of watching it b) the way he says res-o-lu-tion c) everything he says is absolutely true. “It doesn’t fit in a Rolodex because it doesn’t belong in a Rolodex.”


Love this track, Sun Of A Gun by Oh Land. Love the video even more. Even better is her website, very neat, minimalist design.


I’ve no idea what Herb Lester Associates actually do all day long, but evidently it involves drinking coffee, wandering around a bit and making amazing maps of London and New York. I have both You Are Here (a map of the best places in London for freelancers to get free wifi, good coffee and be left alone) and Wish You Were There (a map of long lost ’60s LDN), and I love them both. I shall no doubt be getting their newest, the self-explanitory How To Find Old New York in time for my next visit to NYC. I suggest you do the same by clicking here.


As a follow on from the earlier Hyperpotamus post, check out his website. Really nice, simple design. May well have to borrow a few style cue for the next incarnation of this blog. Wonder if there’s anything on wordpress what does a similar, moving box type thing.


What does your desk say about you? Mine is ordered, stylish, with a little elegant clutter, but only a little. And yours?


My love of chairs is legendary. I think I’ve just found me new favourite website in the whole world. Chair Whore.
