I've been going on mini expeditions with my friend around London. Feeling very hungry we circled Soho and sniffed out a quaint lime green hole in the wall Mooli's. The food was incredible; wholesome bites of indian wraps that come in a variety of flavours, meats and ring of fire-ness. What made it all the more interesting was the men's toilet above, and the poster that sits unassumingly amongst the the customers with a catchline of : Not to be consumed with low grade cocaine.

Hello - so I thought that it was time to come out and prance around in my latest project : Nose Design Studio as a freelance designer + collaborator with other nose enthusiasts and designers. This is my mini-design consultancy with a big personality, for those who want something more daring and inspiring. Thanks to my awesome friend Lana (pictured above), I was able to brave the questioning and bewildered faces that greeted us along the way to Holland Park. The best part of my day was an 8 year old gasping and saying, "That's so cool!"
I'll be posting many photographs of where the Nose spent its day out.

Got this off the Thought Catalog, when basic physics meets cubs of gooey paint makes beautiful paintings by Holten Rower. A room of these boxes would be a fantastic addition to any trippy-seeking-hipsters.

A friend of mine shared this awesome blog by another design blog enthusiast, Design Fetish. These are a series of minimalist portraits by a Dubai based graphic designer, Ali Jabbar.
