A black silkscreened scribble ... what's not to like?

Japanese Company 'iida' make beautiful mobile phones.
They also had the beautiful idea of commissioning artists to create
animations for their customers all available as downloads, for free.
Having had a good browse through their Digital Contents Gallery,
an instant fave were the inky, cut out drawings of '100%Orange'.
Everything seems to be moving in the world of Advertising nowadays.
I'm kinda breaking into a loose jog in comparison to the slick world of the
moving image but giving my own small spin on it at the same time!

I meant to blog about these innovative cardboard wallets on my return from Tokyo... then I managed to delete the photographs. Having remedied this situation, here they now are. I had the good fortune to meet their maker, Shimazu Fuyuki at 'Arts Chiyoda', also the home of '+81' Magazine. For a young guy his ideas are forward thinking, aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly. I came home with a wallet in my suitcase which was instantly re-housed in the back pocket of my boyfriends jeans. Three months later its looking better than ever, with additional creases & added distress that only 90 days in a pair of good denims can conjur up. It literally is the wallet that keeps on giving!
