Firstly, we'd just like to say that the Junior event on Wednesday was a big hit and good times (and Rhodia pads!) were had by all! The guys at Three Thousand have posted some pics from the event in their latest issue so check it out and keep Junior on your radar.
And just before the weekend, we'd like to share with you a couple of things we've seen about which we think are really cool.
One of our readers Caroline sent through a link via Design Boom for this amazing colour picker pen by jinsu park. Basically, korean designer jinsu park designed a concept pen that adopts the eyedropper tool of photoshop for real life. The colour picker pen enables colours in the environment to be scanned and instantly used for drawing as a built in RGB cartridge replicates what the sensor sees.
It's not quite a Lamy for everyday performance, but, for all those times you were thinking that your green isn't quite the same as what you're drawing, the colour picker's got your back!
And a bit closer to home, we went to our local corner store here in North Melbourne for an afternoon pick up (i believe the exact words were "something chocolatey...") and some other bits and pieces and noticed the guys at Griggons and Orr using these cool bags instead of the standard plastic bag.
It's one small step towards more environmentally friendly ways of doing the day to day things, like choosing sustainable forestry or recyclying your water.
Have a great weekend and let us know what makes you happy!
