To have and to hold

Tip 1: Save money on costly wedding gifts and design the invites as a wedding present instead.

Tip 2: Try not to get so drunk that you pick up an inflatable guitar and join the wedding band on stage.

We ended up doing both last year. Here's the wedding stationery we designed. The wedding rocked, the inflatable guitar has now popped.

We'll Take Manhattan

Watching BBC 4's 'We'll Take Manhattan' got us reminiscing about our most recent (and so far only) trip to NYC. The story explores the love affair between photographer David Bailey and supermodel Jean Shrimpton after they are sent to New York for a prestigious Vogue photo shoot in 1962. It was full of amazing architecture, fashion and design and so we thought we'd share a few of our photograms. As you can see, we're no David Bailey. 

Our favourite things to do in NYC:
Eat at the best place in Town, The Skylight Diner
Catch one of the weekend Flea markets
Look 'UP'. Loads of amazing signage, new and old. Loved the faded painted advertising as seen above, and we found more here 
Eat a giant pizza... and plenty of  Burgers and Cupcakes
Go to the best comic book store in New york, Midtown Comics and pick up something to read whilst you're relaxing at Central Park.

If you missed We'll Take Manhattan, you can catch it here

Living for Kicks

We headed down to the Sneaker Lounge at Newcastle's Hoults Yard yesterday to check out the Sole Heaven Yard Sale - and we were not disappointed. Luckily we got there not long after opening, as it seemed every trainer lover in town had come along early doors to try and pick up a bargain. After wading through the crowds and searching through the towers of shoeboxes we came away with a pair of Supra grey waxed canvas Pilots and some Nike Backboard High's in white and mega-blue obsidian, all for the wallet loving price of £25 per pair. The sale has now gone online until midnight on Monday so check it now at www.soleheaven.com and if you're in Newcastle get down to Hoults Yard and into the Sneaker Lounge for an unrivaled selection of kicks.

C-Front is here

C-Front is finally up and running.

Let's go.
