16.7 million - that's the amount of colours your average computer, smartphone and tablet can display. Yes, quite a lot.
Own a Colour is a great new incentive looking to raise funds for children's charity UNICEF with the aim of naming each and every one of these 16.7million colours for at least $1. All the money raised will go directly to transform children's lives.
A really good idea with great execution - fantastic website! It was tough pick but we've bought our colour, inspired by the beautiful day outside today - checkout the colour 'TUSK' - here
The guys at Cookie Composites have released the latest addition to their helmet lineup - the 'G3'. Building on the technical advancements of the previous G2, the new G3 is taking to the new level with a tonne of tech features (and doing it all in some pretty cool colourways as well).
We've launched the 'G3' with a new print ad series which will be rolling out across Skydiving publications in the coming weeks.
We've been working with the team at Cookie since 2006 - developing the brand, product logos, e-commerce website, digital applications, print campaigns, tradeshow booths etc. So it's really great to see these guys go from strength to strength - and always on the cutting edge. We're also wishing Jeremy a continued speedy recovering from a close call with his R&D 'incident' a couple of weeks back.
So if your into falling from the sky and want to look good doing it - you can order your G3 online - worldwide delivery and you can even add a customised engraving option:

Real Scenes is a series of films, developed by Resident Advisor and Bench, in which we explore the musical, cultural and creative climate within electronic music's key destinations. We'll look at the role singular figureheads—producers, DJs, promoters—play in making their city's music scene a point of world-wide interest. We'll also look at places, spaces and inspirations, seeking out the essence of what gives these hyper-local scenes a truly global resonance.
Berlin has always been a special place, and especially so when it comes to electronic music. When the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, techno became the underground soundtrack to the reunion between East and West. In recent years, it's become an international destination for ravers - a cheap place to party with clubs that are renowned throughout the world.
Techno has become a business in the meantime. Yet Berlin still maintains a credibility that other cities lack. To understand why, RA and Bench have teamed up for another edition of Real Scenes. We went to the German capital eager to find out about its unique history and the reasons behind its continued relevance.
Heading into the last game of the season, Gold Coast SUNS fans received a treat in their letterboxes with the latest issue of Rise Up hitting member households last week. We’ve been working closely with the SUNS on Rise Up over the last two seasons and with such an exciting inaugural season coming to an end, we had a lot to cover in the 40pgs of this issue. Packed full of articles, interviews, pics along with an awesome panoramic poster, we’ve pinned it as the best issue to date.
As a member’s exclusive magazine, Rise Up it’s just one way that the club gives back to their members. It won’t be long now until 2012 memberships go on sale – so make sure you get on board for 2012.
Traveling can inspire all sorts of creative outputs. One man called Kevin Cyr from Brooklyn did not stop at journal entries and taking photos – he took what he loved about camping and put it together into one cool art project. Kevin built the Camper Bike as part of an exhibition called Home in the Weeds. The idea behind the series was a hard look at self-preservation and human persistance in a world in which the housing market is becoming crazier by the minute. The Camper Bike is an attempt to show that you can go back to the roots, make do with very little and still have a roof over your head and wheels under your feet.
