Hamba Kahle - Ngiyabonga kakhulu

I am a firm believer that if you do not do something properly, you should not do it at all. I feel I am neglecting SprayGlue because of many reasons, the main being a lack of time to post good material. Unfortunately money talks and I have to walk. I am focusing on my freelance design, my surfing (that I am getting back into, I have to buy a longboard as my short board is just not cutting it), my family and amazing group of friends as well as general people watching and photography. I want to say a big thank you to a few people (please if I leave you out it is not because I don't care it is just because my memory and attention span go hand in hand), Heather Moore, Grace Bonney, Craig Parsons, Jessica Goldfond, JP, Christopher de Beer, Bovril and Banana toast, The Kings of Leon and most of all the guy/girl who invented post-it notes. But a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to look at SprayGlue and leave an amazing comment. To the people who left krap comments, I hate you a little.

Hamba Kahle - Ngiyabonga kakhulu

Love & Peace

Sukie produces notebooks, tea towels, journals, sketchbooks and loads more. I love this illustration style, reminds me of old tourist postcards and Olympic posters.

Urban Ladies

Urban Outfitters (USA) has always got the current trends in the ladies ranges. I personally love the gypsy/prairie look that is emerging amongst the styles. Nice soft colours and fabrics.

Great illustration from David Foldvari.

Soia & Kyo Winter 2008

What a great long weekend! And apparently the 2nd of May has also been declared a public holiday here in South Africa. That is fantastic news! The Winter ranges have started popping up in stores and there are some interesting pieces out there. Soia & Kyo is no exception. Their amazing site and great photography make for some easy browsing.

I am very sorry for the lack of posts recently but I needed to unplug myself from my networks to restore and refresh myself so that my design and my blog content does not become redundant and boring. In future posts I will be looking at more niche sub-cultures and design categories to help differentiate SprayGlue as a design blog. So please don't be angry or sad, SprayGlue will be back in more accurate action asap.

Khai Liew

Khai Liew is my favourite furniture designer. His collections angular clean lines were inspired by folding paper and angular wood carving. Beautiful and fantastic!

Established & Sons

Always hungry for furniture design and beautiful chairs, Established and Sons filled my appetite this morning with a visual feast from their collections. Beautiful work.

Dieter Rams

While browsing through Dieter Rams incredible work that he designed for Braun I came across a couple of great black and white layouts that immediately caught my eye. I love that the photo is the hero, glorifying certain aspects of the product in the shot. Great typography.

The Last Mix Tape

You gotto to love the way these storyboards have been designed. I really love the NFL clash with the universe/galaxy elements. It's like the birth of a star or watching a nebula forming. The Last Mix Tape.
