My design for Movement merchandise made the cut a second year for the 2007 festival. I was pleased to see it walking about the Plaza all three days this year, apparently enjoying fine sales yet again. A small feather for my cap please.
Oh - and if you want one of these shirts, contact Paxahau.

I do indeed find much favor with the new Coca-Cola can. The "minds" behind Coca-Cola's image have finally begun to do what I have been wanting and waiting for them to do for years: leverage Coca-Cola's rich iconic status in their marketing. This new can has stripped away all the extra graphics (bubbles, drop shadows, strokes) and gone for a pure and clean Coca-Cola identity. The white Spencerian script. A clean, unstroked Dynamic Ribbon Device™ ("The Wave"). The only new element is the modern sans-serif font for "Classic" (I've heard a couple design-minded friends grumble about this but I like it).
Now if only they would bring back the glass bottles.

You only turn 30 once. And you're only devoured by zombies once. We combined the experience for our friend Sara Nicholas and these poster reproductions commemorated the occasion.
