Creative business cards


Do you dream of having a more exciting business card than a standard white rectangle? One that truly represents your personality or what you do?

Canva Design School has found fifty of the most inspiring business cards, that surely leave a lasting impression.

While online profiles are becoming increasing popular, a creative and effective card can gain the attention of potential clients just as well.

With the use of embossing, clever paper art, and a strong sense of brand, each innovative business card holds its very own unique identity.

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.

Photos of London’s deserted Underground


Photographer Aaron Pegg has showcased the eerie beauty of a deserted London Underground.

Each photograph captures the architectural mystery of the transport system after hours, drawing attention to features that often go unnoticed during our busy commutes.

Creating over 500 bold images of tunnels, platforms, and more, Pegg visited up to forty stations, aiming to inspire viewers to approach life with a fresh perspective.

Take a closer look at some of his work here and tell us if you now see London Underground in a different light.

‘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.

Covent Garden Market filled with 100,000 balloons


Covent Garden Market has been filled with 100,000 white glowing balloons.

French artist Charles Petillon has installed this piece of art, called Heartbeat, across the ceiling of one of London’s most thriving tourist areas.

The sculpture measures up to 54 metres in length and 12 metres wide, with white lights pulsating within the installation representing the ‘heartbeat’ of the building itself and its history.

Petillon described the piece as a ‘fragile composition that creates a floating cloud above the energy of the market’.

Visitors have until the 27th September to experience Heartbeat for themselves; take a closer look here and tell us if you’ll be visiting.

Summer snaps as silly GIFS


Summer may be coming to a slightly drizzly close, but thankfully Booking.com is bringing back the fun to our holiday pictures.

The travel agency, which is known for its humorous approach to advertising, is now encouraging us to send in our snaps so they can be redesigned into animated GIFs.

This brilliant idea is part of the Booking.com’s ‘Wing Everything’ campaign, which promotes spontaneous vacations.

The sample GIFs include a standard beach scene interrupted by a dolphin rainbow, a pyramid of deckchairs, and an ice cream theft.

Take part in the competition by tweeting your picture with #WingItYeah and find out more about the campaign here.
