Customised fashion on demand


In a digital world, fashion is now being democratised, with some studios giving ordinary consumers the chance to customise their favourite clothing.

London-based creative consultant FranklinTill Studio has looked at how trends are changing within fashion and how customisation could take the industry by storm.

For instance, knit design studio Knyttan offers a range of patterns and colour palettes for its products, which customers can manipulate with innovative editing software, before each piece is produced and hand-finished.

‘Go Bold’ with McCoy’s


Addressing the pressure to be ‘manly’, McCoy’s are encouraging men to unleash their ‘Real McCoy’.

The crisp brand’s ‘Go Bold’ campaign has taken a different approach to what it takes to be a real man, with an outrageously funny ad that sees a plumber belting out an Ella Henderson number in the most unexpected places.

The campaign aims to link the strong flavours used in McCoy’s crisps with the bold actions of people revealing their Real McCoy.

Watch the ad below and tell us if you’ll be unleashing your Real McCoy.

90 great infographics


Creative Bloq has put together an incredible list of 90 of the most innovative, inspiring, and informative infographics out there.

A great infographic has the perfect balance of words and pictures to illustrate a certain subject, a complex juggling act of facts and design which is essential to attract the reader.

Here are three infographics that caught our eye:

Imaginary Factory (pictured) was designed by Jing Zhang who imagined tiny workers inside our gadgets and what they do to make them work.

CompanyFolders.com’s advice on logo design, which highlights simplicity, colour, and adaptability as key guidelines.

And a fantastic tea and biscuit guide by Green Hat, which looks at how long to dunk your biscuit without incurring soggy disaster.

Take a look at the whole list here and tell us which infographics you like.

Banksy’s Dismaland


Have you visited Dismaland yet?

No, this isn’t a typo – it’s Banksy’s new exhibition in Weston-super-Mare, which has gained a resoundingly positive response despite its grim ethos.

With the first visitors allowed in the park last week, it’s clear that the experience is not simply another work by the renowned street artist, but an interactive demonstration against the world we live in.

Recycling the typical trappings of theme parks and giving them a dystopian spin, Dismaland showcases the contributions of fifty artists – as well as miserable staff, a carousel on which the horses get turned into lasagne, and a post-apocalyptic ice cream van.

Take a glimpse – if you dare – at Dismaland here and tell us if you’ll be visiting.

Tiny Dancer by John Lewis


Known for its innovative Christmas advertising, John Lewis has launched a brilliant new ad for Home Insurance guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

The ad’s strapline, ‘If it matters to you, it matters to us’, has been expressed through a little girl with a slightly clumsy but heartfelt passion for dancing.

With the young girl twirling, leaping, and prancing around the house, she nudges and taps all the fragile, precious items in the house – reminding viewers to enjoy family life with the comfort of knowing your home and its contents are insured.

Watch the clever ad below and tell us if it’s brightened up your day.
