We designed the wedding invitation of our dearest dance queen Luna Maurer. Luna and the cute hubby Res will held a marriage party in a fairy-tale castle in France, during a beatific spring weekend. We’re delighted de luxe to contribute to their happiness with a jolly swing twist invite.

We were in Denizli yesterday. Currently we are working on our Ecstatic Surface Design 2013, after The Credit Card Collection and Diva Opaque: Anonymous Guardians of Intimacy.

Skeuomorphs are material metaphors, informational appendixes with no real function. Fragments of nostalgia, floating around, dishing out little whispers of comfortability.
From leather wrapping and stitches in cutting-edge apps for the iphone to a handle to small to be grabbed, skeuomorphs are the thalidomide babies of industrial and interface design.

Botas picudas, botas vaqueras exóticas or, simply, pointy boots are the dancing apparatus of mexican electronic tribal music dancers. A trend and an ornament originated in small villages, it has crept up its way towards the US – to name a few states, Texas, North Caroline Florida and Mississippi.
Ridiculed by many, the boots are seen as things worn only by chuntaros, the name for northern mexican natives and a derogative term for uncultured lower class citizens. And yet, they are objects of folk craftsmanship, symbols of pride not only for their bearers, but for their creators, always in search of creative solutions on how to make longer and pointier boots.
