London-based design studio Marshmallow Laser Feast isn’t just about pushing creative boundaries; it’s about encouraging people to see things from a different perspective.

Kickstarter of the Day: Batband

Batband4Batband

The latest Kickstarter from London-based Studio Banana Things offers a futuristic headset that will allow you to “hear twice as much,” or at least stay connected to the world around you while privately enjoying your favourite podcast or Booooooom mix.

The proposed Batband device works by transmitting sound through the bones of your skull, as opposed to traditional sound-devices that plug/cover your ears.

I can honestly say that I would never wear this, but the idea is really interesting. Learn more below!

An Interview with Master Calligrapher Seb Lester

Calligrapher and type designer Sebastian “Seb” Lester is one of my favourite people to follow on Instagram (@seblester). The hand drawn calligraphy videos that he creates are so satisfying to watch that I find myself returning to them time and time again. It’s no wonder he’s amassed a following of over 1.2 million followers on his various social channels.

I asked Seb, of all the videos he’s made so far, which words have been the most fun to draw. The video above is a compilation of his favourites. A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to ask him a bit more about his work as a sort of mini interview to accompany the video. You can read it in its entirety, a view some more videos, below.

Ones to Watch: An Interview with Atlanta-based Adam Alexander aka Demo Taped

Adam Alexander is one to watch. The 17-year-old Atlanta native is making music under the name Demo Taped, and while he’s no household name yet, people are starting to take notice. The first single off of his debut EP,  “I Luv U” is the definition of feel good music and has been stuck in my head all summer long.
