Great new video for Massive Attack by the talented guys at UVA. Originally designed for a live show, the animation is now available online. The video was designed using custom 3D software developed by UVA, which allowed the creation of spontaneous, organic forms, simply by “sketching” the outlines.
If you're looking for a new handbag you could do a lot worse than one of these limited edition, hand embroidered, canvas and silk thread, bags by Olympia Le-Tan. Based on first edition novels there are 21 different designs to choose from and should be available from early next year. As a male I'm not in the habit of carrying around a handbag but these are very tempting.

I went to watch the Aaron Rose film Beautiful Losers last night at the old Music Library in Brighton. It was a great place to watch it, surrounded by the faded glory of that impressive building, and the large scale work of some talented local artists. The film features Ed Templeton, Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen, Jo Jackson, Chris Johanson, Thomas Campbell, Geoff McFetridge, Mike Mills, Stephen Powers, Harmony Korine and Shepard Fairey.

Phew, well I'll stop there, for everyone's sake. Suffice it to say that we've done loads of work that we're proud of, and for that a big thanks must go out to all of the clients who have been kind enough to exchange their money for our creative thinking and doing: 82ASK, Krispy Kreme, Momentum Pictures, Disney Channel, Beefeater, PokerStars, HotOnLine, The Industry Trust, Friends of the Earth, Crisis, S&M Cafe, Madness, fish4, O2, Nuffield Health, Fentimans, Ladbrokes and Associated Newspapers. Without you it's fair to say that Sell! Sell! would just be a bunch of very broke idealistic creative people in a room, playing pinball.
