Interview

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

Last week I had a good coffee and chat with my friend Ryan. I know him as he already interviewed me some time ago for another magazine. Always good to see him and to talk to him.

This picture made my day! Thank you so much to Sea Shepherd crew for taking this photo.

On the way to the postoffice I met two homeless guys digging through the garbage bin and when I saw this pile of papers they got out I asked them if I can buy it. They were happy to sell it and I was happy to get this treasure for our notebooks. I love my work!

More than 1500 pockets made from old magazine pages for upcoming 2015 diaries

50 postcards for the Upcycling Fashion Store in Berlin. Made from old book covers. And don't worry about the rest of the book - you will find its pages in the notebooks.

Yesterday we passed by these two big containers filled with trash. It turned out they were cleaning up the BRIGHT trade show. Diving into the containers we found various magazines which we liberated for our work. As it couldnt go any better I met the guy organizing The trade show and he gave me his email so I can write him to get more stuff in 6 months when the next fashion week happens in Berlin.

The Sea Shepherd project

Friday, June 20, 2014

Finally our work on the Sea Shepherd project is done. I don’t mean “finally" like "we couldn’t stand working on it" - the opposite is true. We loved making those notebooks. So this “finally” means that it took longer than we thought to make those notebooks. But we have a really good feeling about them. Two weeks ago we shipped them to Australia so our friend Josh would recieve them on the Sam Simon ship. Josh helped us to make this project happen. And we want to thank him for that.

If you haven’t heard of the Sea Shepherd Conservative Society visit their website to learn about their great impact on the  protection of marine life. Check out their videos to see how hard they work to protect those that can’ t protect themselves. It is humans that destroy the ocean and kill and hurt its inhabitants. Humans that prefer profit to mercy, pride to common sense…

We are proud that we can contribute with our little donation of 100 customized notebooks. They are aimed to be sold by Sea Shepherd to raise some money for their campaigns.

And we also hope that people will like what we’ve created.

When we posted the first pictures of the process of making the notebooks, we asked people to check if they can find some old National Geographic magazines, or diving magazines or basically any pictures of whales, fish and other marine animals, so we can use these for the notebooks. We were amazed by how many people offered to contribute with what they could find. We have received some things after we finished the notebooks so we still have plenty of material to use if we ever make another project. And we hope we will come up with another one!
