Vancouver-based designers, Knauf and Brown, have just released a new product called the “Dossier Sac”. In the same way they updated the classic folding chair with their “Profile Chair” Calen Knauf and Conrad Brown have breathed new life into a simple drawstring bag.

The Dossier features a main body of 3mm black Horween leather, with ballistic nylon drawstring closure. The handle/strap is made from a single piece of black static climbing rope that passes through a small 5mm vegetable tan leather loop.

The Beatles – Abbey Road

Many artists have reimagined famous album covers over the years, but I don’t think there’s been a series as impressive as this. Artist Harvezt has painstakingly created the other side to many iconic album covers, revealing what the reverse shot would look like if a camera had been placed in the background of the original cover. It’s quite remarkable the way the artist matches perspectives, colours, even illustrative styles. Have a look at more famous covers from a completely new perspective below!

Tom Williams, a designer in London, happened to catch a couple city workers painting text onto a road and the footage is so satisfying to watch. I have so many questions! This dude with the roller is a master, are all city road painters this skilled? I always assumed stencils were involved? If anyone out there has more insight into this I would love to hear from you.

Watch below.
