Ridley’s Kaleidoscope is a super range of traditional games, toys and jokes, all enclosed in 1960’s inspired colourful vintage style packaging.
Based in China, Chilean visual artist Fernando Gomez Balbontin has painted a series of thought-provoking artworks that explores the theme of life and death.
Aptly called ‘Thoughts About Life and Death’, the portraits depict the aftermath scenes of accidents with crushed vehicles and figures next to it. The artist chose to portray the accidents in a beautiful manner, to showcase the “beauty among the wreckage” and that tragedy is not about the physical damage.
“Denying death is denying life. [It is] necessary to understand that tragedy is not the supposedly reality of death. Tragedy is about not accepting this possibility and consequently, not having enough time to live,” explained Balbontin.
Agency M&C Saatchi has created a beautiful series of retro-looking travel ads for Transport for London that encourages Londoners to go out and explore their city.
Created for the campaign ‘Without Leaving London’, the ads show places of interest that Londoners can visit and experience without having to leave the city.
“The brief for this campaign was to show people the breath of inspiring things they can see in London, to get them out of their routines, and tell them how to get there with Transport for London,” said Grant Parker, the head of art and creative director at M&C Saatchi. “And we wanted to create something that reflects this brand’s impressive design heritage.”
