As part of The West India Dock Project for the Museum of London Docklands we had the pleasure to produce an 8 minutes animation based around the history of West India Dock Road.
Here’s just a little teaser of what’s about to come.
Talking about travels, it’s nice to have in mind that we can also do time travels… That’s what this projects is about: meeting the local community, Pencil & Help, Clayton Junior, Nearly Normal Collective came up with the idea to discover hidden stories about the Docklands… This is just a sneak peack! Stay tuned!
Justin Mezzell was commissioned by Wander to create a print for their Wander Postcard Project that could also be downloaded for iPad/iPhone. That’s the perfect combination of maps, travels, and clouds…
We support the Brazilian Riots #weareone #doiemtodosnos #vfromvinegar #gobrazil #wesupport #nearlynormaluk
In the company I work for, the percentage of Brazilians is really really high (even if the 99% of their ancesters are Italian) so sharing this is something I really care about. If you don’t know what it’s going on right now in Brazil, it’s time to have a better idea. “Non sono tutte rose e fiori!” and I am proud of their reaction/action, something we (Italians) should take for examples.
What if you find a nice transportation like the caravan here and you can start your journey with your little friends? I see already lovely instagram pics along the way!
Wishing all the moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Lol… Laughed a lot about this flyer… my mom thinks the same probably. Sometimes it’s kinda frustrating when I show her some previews begging for a comment/feedbacks. She replies with little convinction, then only after having talked about it with my super-enthusiast dad, she returns to me saying: “wow love your work for this, this and this…”. The good thing is… I didn’t take on board her taste, but definitely her criticism helped me shape it.

Maps are the first step. And this one is lovely! Happy bank holidays. :)
Look at this cake. Look at that face! Marco is one happy and lucky dude. It may be the juice cleanse talking (I know i know, go ahead and roll your eyes at me, I blame San Francisco!) but this may be the most goddamn delicious looking cake I’ve ever seen. Here’s what the lovely Meg Gaffarelli sent over about her creation:
“I live in London with my boyfriend Marco and my love for cakes is directly proportional to his love for your lettering. So I decided to bake a cake for his birthday and sent it to you - I mean, send pictures :) (ah! he doesn’t know about me writing you - surprise!) It’s a fresh strawberry cake with whipped cream and white chocolate chips. Guests said it was juicy, sweet (but not too much), fresh and with lovely different textures.”
Hot damn Meg, that’s one tasty looking cake. See you if/when you head over to my side of the pond! (and across to the other side of our enormous country).
I tried to prepare a surprice for Marco’s birthday, and this is the amazing result! I absolutely love her works and her words made me really really happy. Thank you Jessica!! Even Marco was jumping on the chair :)))

Sometimes I think about how much of my career is dependent on this guy.
The concept behind this illustration is absolutely genius.
Starting a new section of this blog, where I’ll try to put myself outside of my comfort zone. This week I’ll deal with a difficult task: Be Respectful with Someone Hostile.
You will wonder… but why? Well, I think that in the past I reacted too much with my guts in several situations instead of thinking of a way to be more considerate, and it turned out that I could be and act differently just showing respect. Especially for a traveller, this would be a hard thing to do. But it worth a try!
I’ve got few things in mind to start from. I’ll keep you posted with this.
Following the animal mood of the day, I saw this lovely video about an App for children where they can learn the alphabet while drawing funny and brilliant animals. I’m sure children won’t be the only one to use this :)
This blog is about design associated to travelling, designing while travelling, travel looking for great design, and any other combination of these two concept I’m sure can make the point. I started wondering about where I would like to travel in (let’s say) next couple of years.
I made a looooong list and I thought that I shouldn’t really wait for my holidays/money/freetime/friends to allow me to do this, so while I was working for GDR Creative Intelligence (specifically during lunch time!) I started sculpting the left over of blu-tack we were using for our moodboards. And with the help of one of my lovely collegue Sheena ( http://queenbeansupreme.tumblr.com ), I started my adventure around the world.
What would you do if you have the chance to reinvent yourself every day?
The adventure of the Blu-tack project explores the possibilities of the reusable adhesive, starting from the combination of animals / alphabet while travelling the world.
It’s all about potential, attitude and fun!
What will the blu-tack be tomorrow? Stay tuned.
What is your favourite one? More to come :)
Looking for colour inspirations, I found myself playing with this website http://color.hailpixel.com that helps you match tones and create gorgeous palette. Mine couldn’t be different… #loveTurquoise
Perfect for developers and designer to check the perfect colour code.
