I can't help it. I have to post about another of my absolute favourites. After being lucky enough to see the exhibition Alan Fletcher: fifty years of graphic work (and play) at the Design Museum in London, here, I have become a loyal believer in simple, and extremely effective, graphic design.

Oh dear. I am posting about all my utmost favourite things, other than kittens with whiskers and brown paper packages. Maybe I had better save them up!
I present another one of my design heroes, Matt Butler and the Zaishu. These ones are from the India project. Made from plantation timber, flat pack and often using old paint, the Zaishu is a product that is eco-friendly and incredibly funky also! How handy. And... each panel is individual as it is part of a larger artwork. And... you can build your own. And... the projects support the disadvantaged! And... What more could you want?

Ah, Droog. The streamline yet quirky design and concept and the amazingly attractive images! Have a browse of their website and you cannot help but admire the designers.
"Droog is an innovative enterprise based in Amsterdam. Set up in 1993 as a statement on design, it has developed the Droog mentality: creating innovative concepts that change perspective. Our products and projects connect with the individual, the user. They deal with slowness, memories, nostalgia, re-use, craftsmanship, nature. They generate experience, interaction, participation, products that are easily to comprehend, have meaning, tell stories; products that are meant to be cherished and not discarded without thought."
