A few years ago, Paul Cocksedge Studio launched a highly successful Kickstarter for The Vamp Stereo — an amplifier that would encourage people to reduce waste by allowing them to transform pre-existing speakers into portable Bluetooth stereo systems. In response to customers who loved the idea but didn’t necessarily have old speakers to re-use, they’ve now come up with The Vamp Speaker. Made entirely out of recycled materials, The Vamp Speaker is designed to work perfectly with The Vamp Stereo device and can be connected to up to two additional speakers, allowing for deeper (and louder!) sound configurations.

Our friends over at It’s Nice That have come up with a series of clever installations for this year’s London Design Festival! Designed by creative duo Isabel + Helen, each of the five pieces play on design industry phrases that’ve become part of our everyday speech. Check out more images from “A Load of Jargon” below or on display at The Conran Shop starting September 17!
London-based illustrator and cartoonist Tom Gauld probably doesn’t need an introduction. His work has appeared in outlets like The New Yorker, The Believer and The New York Times. He’s also been doing a weekly series of comics for The Guardian’s Saturday Review since 2005 — a collection of which became his second comic book, You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack (2013).
His latest masterpiece, Mooncop, is similar in tone to his first graphic novel, Goliath (2012) — a deadpan retelling of the Bible story. Set in a future where the idea of living on the moon isn’t just a possibility but a reality so passé that the one remaining policeman has little to do other than watch the last few colonists move back to Earth, Mooncop brilliantly side-steps obvious drama, focusing instead on things that are far more mundane and all too relatable.
Mooncop hits stores September 20th! Thanks to our friends over at Drawn & Quarterly, we have two copies to give away! They also put us in touch with Tom, who was kind enough to tell us a bit about his process, how he stays motivated and what had him laughing so hard he had to stop drawing!
