Apparently, 3,000 pounds of wood waste is generated during home constructions. Fortunately, there are plenty options for wood waste disposal. Naruse-Inokama Architects reuse wood waste from home constructions to generate paper. And out of that paper, they designed a product, IE-TAGs. Referred to as “Little houses made from big houses,” IE-TAGs (house-tags) are house-shaped sticky notes, like Post-it notes. Get in line fast! Post-its and virtual desktop sticky notes come as a relief. They contain treasures of our thoughts in our pump-happy moments. They also encourage us to embrace our disorder. Messiness is a big part of the brand’s business: neatly piled, in a beautifully easygoing pile kind—a signature of individuality.
Categorized “Bank notes”
The American Dollar has not truly been redesigned since about the 1930s. The Dollar ReDe$ign Project invited designers to send in alternatives. These bank note designs right here are the entries of John Dowling (owner of the London-based Dowling Design & Art Direction). Downling completely stripped them back to its bare bones: type-only with just two elements: a name, and a value denominator. Any safety issues put aside, this is actually a reasonable entry. Think about it: what more are bank notes than mere promises of money anyways? I could easily live with these ;-)
