Hey hey MLE,
I was walking around Arnold Circus in Shoreditch when I came across this rather interesting shop, thought I'd write a post. We will have to go visit it next time you are in London!
I'm surprised I hadn't noticed it before, it has been there for 10 years now evidently. Samson Soboye, a designer and stylist runs the place and it's full of a really amazing edit of pan-African designers as well as global brand names. I love the menswear and jewellery best, but there is also womenswear, housewear and tons of shoes.
The man himself is pictured above with a necklace I need, no sorry want. Want not need.

We are all so pleased to announce that our new site for London's Unicorn Theatre is live:
We have been to a few shows so far, and have been completely blown away. They are amazing and it's been so lovely to work with them.
If you go have a look, hit the "GO BACKSTAGE" button in the upper right corner of certain productions. The entire site will drop down to the bottom to reveal some interesting facts and out takes and other stuff you wouldn't find front of house.
Many thanks to Josiah Jones, Elodie Fabbri and Halo!

Hi Emelie and Suzan
The above photo is of the team including Chad (the dog) who is the boss of the practice and I've been told to make everyone aware that we are not hitting or kicking Chad in the photo but simply trying to get him to turn to face the camera with the use of cheese...and a foot.
This Blog post is about Team working and it's going to be short and sweet, so here goes:

Over and out.

Hi Suzan and Emelie,
So after spending 2 weeks in Budapest, what was the most inspirational, design related part of the trip? It probably wasn't anything to do with spending 7 days in 40 degree heat sleeping in a tent every night, as this only inspired me to maybe consider a shorter festival or at least buying an air bed.
I was more inspired by the buildings of the city. The centre of budapest is quite spectacular with some amazing architecture even after being under 45 years of communist control which doesn't seem to have affected the freedom of building design and may have only increased the variety of architecture that can now be seen in the city.
All of these different styles are mixed side by side, some being notable buildings marked in tourist guides and others even with amazing architecture may just be apartments or offices that are as incredible as some of the church's or as interesting as the museums.
One of the most prominent styles in Budapest is Art Noveau which many of the most famous Hungarian Architects designed in linking with traditional Hungarian designs and also quite a lot of Far East (Moroccan, Indian, Syrian) patterns and imagery. This gives a lot of the buildings a sense of wealth and opulence that you might not have expected from the city. The one pictured above is a perfect example of this and is a building that contains The Museum of Applied Arts .
All in all I think that it's an amazing city with plenty of history both highs and lows and this is reflected everywhere you look. It's a thriving cultural capital that deserves attention and is definitely worth a visit.

Hi Suzan and Emelie,
I've currently been interning at MOTHandRUST for the past 8 weeks, so who am I? Well my names Josiah and I'm a Graphic Design student currently studying at Chelsea College of Art & Design on my summer holiday between second and third year.
Being my first internship I was really keen to do some real work and I can say that it's really been a rewarding experience doing live projects and gaining a lot of skills and knowledge that I will be able to take forward to develop my professional practice.
Something cool I've seen online recently are these images titled 'Crash Landed' that were made for Getty Images by a collaboration between Ken Hermann (photographer) and Gemma Fletcher (Art Director). The images that have been created are really atmospheric and give a sense of mystery whether it being why the hell is a spaceman there or the faceless mask of the spacesuit. Being a fan of '2001: A Space Odyssey' I like anything involving space imagery.

Thanks for all the help and the chance to work for your studio.
