Another logo I came across during my Sydney adventures; this one belongs to the Small Animals Specialist Hospital.

I initially meant to do a post on portraits; and then I got stuck on Candice Wouters, a South African born photographer now living in London, whose work I stumbled upon while browsing for something or the other on Flickr. It was a bit inconvenient that her photos come in fairly small sizes, but even […]
The theory splits these non-converting prospects into prospects that need more information in order to feel comfortable enough to purchase; and prospects who are confident about the product but are price sensitive and are shopping for a more affordable option.

And the story-teller behind Disney’s series of celebrities-as-fairytale-characters series. Just amazing.

Moleskine® is the heir and successor to the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin. A simple black rectangle with rounded corners, an elastic page-holder, and an internal expandable pocket: a […]
