While lot's of people are enjoying their summer holiday i am happy to work on a great new project ABOUT people going on holidays!(developing concepts for the travel service industry). During my research i come across many interesting ideas. Have a look at this city map for kids! designed by Alana Zawojski, beautifully illustrated by Jade Cardinally.
It's an interactive way for children to explore famous places and to help the family navigate. This fun way of learning helps these valuable memories to stick much better too. Way to go Alana!
The little map is handsfree, it can be worn around the neck with a cord.
Fully equipped with camera and urban outdoor gear, these two characters guide the little ones through town
giving useful background information about the sights

Last year's holiday in the French countryside was perfect. Although the inside of this authentic farmhouse was still being rebuilt from scratch, people were welcome to stay. The guests room was still 'raw' with occasional excess to the sky through the old roof, but the nearby vintage stores & markets had contributed to a very nice and cosy interior. The bed was absolutely safe from rain as it was situated under the wooden storage place. The stay resulted in a beautiful romantic experience!

Robbie is the new neighbour of Bobje and Nando, he's very small and his main concern is too stay out of the way of B&N as he risks to be eaten alive. However we are working on this project for all to live peacefully together in this neighbourhood.
Cute little tiger isn't he? The bottom one is his little sister, her nickname should be 'JANE' as she is always on the lookout for 'TARZAN' in the planters on the window-sill. 


These past two days have been real hot and we were all forced to take a dip into the North sea. Bobje is an experienced swimmer... the way he challenges the waves..he has no fear. Nando had his very first lesson..he paddles a bit in the undeep parts where his short paws still reach the ground..he's not too sure about all this cooling down yet.

Funny 'pixel sleeping masks' by studiobo from Thailand. I think these are great for kids but it makes me realize that it would not hurt to re-design the ones for adults as well. I imagine a collection of different models (pure luxury thinking) for people to distinguish themselves a bit while they are sleeping in the plane.. ;D

The inkjet printer has been adapted by Ecole Cantonale d'art de Lausanne (ECAL)student Christophe Guberan, to print patterns that transform into 3D shapes. This hydro-fold process is caused by printing with ink that consists of both ink and water.
After the paper has been printed the paper folds automatically along the wet lines. Brilliant!
