I came across this logo idea for London. You know, London is looking for a new logo and is willing to pay 600,000 pounds for it. So I’ve heard. I actually kind of liked this one apart from it’s color scale which gives it a childish look. I mean, it could be the logo of a kindergarden in London. Also the blackletter font character reminds me of Death Note anime, can’t help it.
“…one more idea for the logo for London debate, based on a classic heraldic blackletter font, to hint at history and heritage, by making each flourish a different colour, the letter L takes on a vibrant, lively quality, to represent our diverse and multicultural capital.”

Damien Hirst – Love of God
“For the Love of God is an amazing piece by Damien Hirst that consists of a platinum cast of a human skull encrusted with 8.601 diamonds including a massive pear- shaped one on the forehead. It cost 14 million pounds to produce. This is the ultimate contemporary piece of art that everyone wants to display in their home.
Now, with IHIRST you will be able to create your very own replica. We have included a real size plastic skull and and all the crystals you need to create your copy (Yes! Each one of the 8.601 crystals at an incredible price!). Even the glue and the tweezers are included; patience is the only thing you need. It´s a challenge!! You can even customize your design by adding crystals with different colours if you prefer. Choose your tools. With IHIRST you can create an entirely new design or stick to the original one. Enjoy a piece of art that´s as entirely individual as you are yourself.”
Marc Quinn – Self
“Marc Quinn´s Self (1991) is a sculpture made out of the artist´s own blood that had been collected over a year. It is a truly original piece of art. With IQUINN you will get the directions to make your own sculpture using your own blood and a cast of your head (our your loved ones’!!!*) No other work of art can be more personal than this one. This is the work that the National Portrait Gallery is fighting to acquire. The original one is worth more than a million pounds but why pay for it when you can use your own blood for free?”
Tracy Emin – Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995
“Tracy Emin´s Everyone I have Ever slept with 1963-1995 (also known as the tent) is an unmissable piece of contemporary British art created in 1995. The work consists of a blue tent with the names of everyone the artist had slept with during that period of time, sewed in colourful fabrics. Emin has described the work as seminal, fantastic and amazing.
IEMIN is a complete package of all the elements to create your own cosy version. Just cut letters out from the colourful fabrics provided and sew them onto the blue tent. The original one got destroyed in the fire in 2004 so why are you waiting to recreate it? Be brave. Be brilliant Be yourself. It´s all about being creative with colour, textures and patterns. Textiles are easy to coordinate and change. Highly versatile. Go wild with fabrics.”
Rachel Whiteread – Pink Torso
“Pink Torso is a sculpture made using simply a hot water bottle and alginate created by Turner Prize winner Rachel Whiteread. This piece is a great example of her work about negative spaces. Now you can do it yourself: fill the empty space and create a new and interesting sculpture. It’s simple, it’s contemporary, it’s art and also our most affordable option.

Hello people. I know I couldn’t update my blog for a while but guess what? At first I was just trying to adjust to “normal life” after weeks and weeks of dorm life at school dealing with loads of projects under real survival-of-the-fittest type of conditions. I had only one week to adjust my eating-sleeping settings and off i went to United Kingdom. 🙂 The memories of the one week I spent in London will keep me going for a loong time. I better upload some photos here to fill in the blanks. My pleasure.
