When & SMITH recently contacted us to let us know of their neat website redesign we couldn’t resist posting some of their new work. Wild Lime branding for a high street bar and kitchen is super nice.
Pubs have changed in recent years, and not always for the best. Enter Wild Lime Bar & Kitchen – a new brand that we created for The Bramwell Pub Company with We All Need Words. Inspired by the laidback attitude of New World places like California, Cape Town and Sydney, it’s a relaxed identity with a sun-kissed colour palette and carefree photos. Anyone fancy a Jam Jar Cocktail?
Just Two of Us, colourful sculptures in Brooklyn, New York by German artist Katharina Grosse.
Katharina Grosse’s hybrid approach to painting and sculpture feels very natural in the context of a public space at the center of a thriving urban area where culture, technology, and innovation intersect.

Against the Infinite, three-dimensional wooden sculptures by Oregon-based artist AJ Fosik.
Against the Infinite includes three-dimensional wall-mounted works and freestanding sculptures as well as a large installation. The installation features 30 individual animal heads on diamond-shaped panels which, when arranged together, form an impressive 30-sided geometric shape known as a rhombic triacontahedron (a convex polyhedron with 30 rhombic faces).
Fosik’s totemic vocabulary is constantly evolving, as the artist continually finds new ways of creating works that embody false idolatry through references to divinity worship and religious iconography. His animal subjects typically display hybridized characteristics; combining stylized tongues, teeth, horns, antlers and hoofs with symbolic hand gestures. In the new works, Fosik explores themes of mortality and invention with imagery such as skulls, exposed ribcages, tools and weaponry including sickles, swords, hammers and stakes. Notions of identity and repression are implied through chained muzzles while multiple hands and faces reflect the idea of emerging dualities.
Cloud Forest, photographs taken in the Czech Republic, by Kilian Schonberger.
The beauty of death. Abstract dead spruce forests.
Nice work for Sabadi’s Sicula Terra by Happycentero.
Steps that lead to the Mediterranean maquis, memories of sunshine, a dry burning feeling down your throat, intense and unexpected aromas carried on the wind. Hidden in this chocolate the lucky ones will find memories; others will discover the pleasure of a taste so far unknown; but all of them will surely find evocations of a magnificent land.
Beautiful floor lamps created by design duo Miriam Aust and Sebastian Amelung (Aust & Amelung).
Vitamins & Placebo, great paper craft from Zim And Zou.
Project for the magazine DER SPIEGEL Wissen, about vitamins and placebo. The first pill contains fruits and vegetables which are rich in vitamins. The second one is more about the dark side of the industry, and the money it brings.
