logitech’s brown box

leave a comment »

How a plain box makes a difference.

This box never has to deal with a store shelf. It doesn’t require layers of plastic – so you can open it easily. It can use fewer materials than our retail package – which can make recycling simpler. And it would love to be recycled (where facilities exist).

It’s just one small thing we’re doing to make your experience, and the planet, a little better. your choice to buy online helps make it possible.

A brown box may not be pretty, but we think the results are beautiful.

I think so too. Thank Logitech.

I love the works of Amano Takashi who turns fresh water aquariums into works of living art. I would put one in my living room, even if it takes up the entire space! Simply stunning.

hoxton street monster supplies – purveyor of quality goods for monsters of every kind

with 2 comments

A real store in actual real existence, the Hoxton Street Monster Supplies stocks top quality goods for everyday monsters, and the monsters in all of us. We Made This took the idea, and executed a perfect old-world apothecary with hand-stuck labels and painted door signs. The most interesting part of this store? Behind a cupboard lies a secret stairway to lead up to a writing school for kids, called Ministry of Stories. The store is actually a fake front for a writing centre where kids aged 8-18 can get one-to-one tuition with professional writers and other volunteers. Born out of an idea of the 826 literacy project by Dave Eggers, this is one project that is perfect all over, inside and out.
