Post image for MY NEW FRIEND

His name is Lenny and he is from one of those companies that I know the products but did not know they made them, Monkey Business. Its a little desktop note holder that with his mouth holds a note, photo, business cards etc and in the back is space for the note papers. The head […]

Post image for SWEET TREATS

A couple of weeks back I was in London and had tea at Tea Smith and while I was there I picked up a bar of chocolate from William Curley because of the gorgeous branding. Its all the little bits like the delicate gold print and the choice of matt black card, but the fact […]

Post image for PERFUME BOTTLES

Last week I looked at a couple of package designs, a vodka bottle and a cask wine, this got me searching other neat bottle usage that most people will touch and the most expressive is the perfume or aftershave bottle. The variety of shapes is astounding and that comes from the less constrained cost issues […]

Post image for YET MORE LONDON EXPLORING

It’s not that far to walk but works the appetite just enough. But before I got to the cake I walked into OneDeko which specialised in Italian interior design which I noticed had several pieces that I will be showcasing in the coming weeks, Moroso was one. I could have gone into several places but […]

Post image for KEEPING IT ALL BOTTLED UP

I was out today doing a little hunt for packaging design and came across 2 products that I really like the look of, the first is this bottle of Pure Green Vodka. I am not quite sure why it caught my eye as its only a bottle, but the slim tapering body and the solid base […]

Post image for KEEPING IT POLISHED

A while ago Lisa did a post about the nail polishes of Scotch Naturals and while searching for Japanese design I came across Nendo’s branding of the Three cosmetics. What I like is that depending on if its make up or other products Nendo have kept the same look but with a slight difference in […]

Post image for WRITEABLE LOVE

Every now and then you come across something that you just need to share with everyone. It may be a new taste sensation, a new artist or a new sound but it’s just so good that you can’t help but show off your new discovery. Well that’s how I felt when I first discovered the […]

Post image for HI-FI – FORM OR FUNCTION?

At Quirk Design we often look at different products for researching design, branding and market position and one of the most varied product groups I think is the hifi market. From the cheap mp3 player up to, almost, cost no object components that are made to order. Hi-Fi itself is such a huge category starting […]

Post image for DYSON

The name Dyson became a house hold brand with the intvention of the bagless vacuum upright cleaner named the Cyclone. The idea of having the air and dirt mixture spinning to keep the heavy dirt on the outside takes its inspiration from a tornado just a little smaller. The design of making the workings visable […]

Post image for PAGANI

At the recent Geneva motor show the little car company of Pagani released the Huayra, second in their collection. Its a visual treat on the outside, inside, and if you’re a geeky engineer like me, you’ll love what’s under the skin. But what I am most impressed about is how Pagani have successfully managed to […]

Post image for WHAT IS RETRO?

After months of um-ing and argh-ing, we finally decided that Yes, it’s time to upgrade our digital camera. With so many on the market it’s quite a tough choice, I mean I would love the Leica S-system but really, it’s a bit over the top, and that price tag…we’ll let’s just say that it might […]
