Square ’em all

A selection of app logos which tried hard to fit it all in a square

Now, everyone who owns an iphone or any smart phone are just spoiled with all the smartness of the apps that is contained within. There is an app for almost everything, be it photo filters, music scanner, e-book, recipes, newspapers from all over the world, games, texting, video calls, fitness program and so on. However, have you noticed? The tiny little logos that fill up the walls of your mobile phones are squares with rounded corners? Can you imagine how much devotion has been put into turning all sorts of subjects, objects or activities into these little symbols? Even the fundamentally rounded basketball is transformed into a litte square. How much further can we go?

Donald ♥ Nancy Couple Fashion

Donald and Nancy Featherstone from Fitchburg, Massachusetts has been dressing in matching outfits everyday for 33 years! Donald made his fortune by inventing the infamous plastic pink flamingo lawn ornament. They met at a convention in 1975, got married, and have been wearing matching outfits since 1980. Nancy would pick out prints that reminds her of her husband’s pink flamingo and make shirts for Donald and cut from the same cloth to make a dress for herself.

Kim vs Marina

Besides the fact that Kim Kardashian is a walking billboard for Kanye’s high-fashion fantasy, she’s also a spitting image of Marina Abramović. Like the Serbian performance artist, Kim now wears almost no makeup, favors minimalism, and sticks to black and white. See these side-by-side comparisons:

Diplo got the first Pinar&Viola tattoo

Diplo got a tattoo designed by us. A K&L on his arm, showing his devotion to his son and the woman of his life. The font we used for it is actually the one we sign our work with. This is the first time we it for something else than our own signature.
He said he moved his arm too much, that’s why the white spots occurred in the design.
