Sharp Suits
Ireland's creative community got together to release a lot of pent up anger and sadness through the medium of the A3 poster, all in aid of Temple Street Children's Hospital. Ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and more took time out to dress up their favourite worst feedback from clients, transforming quotes that would normally give you a twitch, into a diverse collection of posters. The work was exhibited by the kind folks at The Little Green Café, Bar and Gallery. The exhibition ran from November 2nd - 7th, with A3 prints of all entries selling for only €10 apiece, with all proceeds going to Temple Street. After receiving an unbelievable amount of support and interest we've finished taking orders on prints. However feel free to drop us a line at verysharpsuits@gmail.com.

The guys were recently working on designing a custom motorcycle for Society, a cafe racer that would make men drool and women swoon. Jose knows all the players in the local motorcycle scene, so they got to work on fabrication. Zech and I had been trying to find a project for us to collaborate on for some time, and with our shared love for motorcycles this seemed to be the perfect project. We came up with a ton of great concepts and ended up finalizing the clean simple badge option (but check out the rejects below).

Was Petraeus Borked? When a D.C. video store revealed the Supreme Court nominee’s list of video rentals, it sparked a privacy backlash and a new law.
