Gummi Bear ice lollies

To kickstart things, a recipe for the sunny days. To make a nu-rave style lolly simply pour some Sprite into a mould and adorn with Gummi Bears.

As the season of beaches and pools kicks in, we can’t help but return to the work of Kristen Martinic. Charming paper swimming suits and hats and dreamy deep pools of blue. Dive in!

Lovers of grids, and type, will be delighted by this flickr group dedicated to scaffolding signs. Many fine examples and inspiration for future rooftop installations.

We’re suckers for a wooden animal and these new ones by Isidro Ferrer do not disappoint. A beautifully made menagerie of recognisable critters, all with a slight twist.

Finally – pass the smelling salts! Dutch artist Thomas Raat has blown up iconic Pelican book covers to graphic designer fantasy proportions. Painted in oil, depleted of type and completely lovely.
