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!

Mid April - end of May

Monday, June 09, 2014

Many things happened last month. Many good things happened actually. My gf Luise moved to Prague from Berlin last week. Finally we managed to live in one place for longer than two weeks in a row. The truth is I love Berlin and I will miss going there regularly but we will still go there as she has her business there and we have quite a few shops there and need to go there once in a while to keep the connection with the shops alive so dont worry Berlin. I wont forget about you.

Another thing that happened is: SUMMER. I have been always complaining that I was born into wrong country and think that somewhere warmer would suit me better - but here I am, surviving winters by partly cheating on them flying to the coutries where tempreature never drops below 15 °C. So wearing my flip flops and shorts here just make me happy and sometimes its hard to work as hard as I should when it feels just so comfortable to be chilling in a park or drinking iced coffee in one of my favorites Cafes. But good thing about our work is that there is plenty of work we can do on the terrace above our studio. And in this point work doesnt really seem to be work for most of the part.

We finished shooting the product video for Deafmessanger notebooks.  Im super stoked to see the result of couple of afternoons we spent working in front of the camera.

Its been some time ago since I visited Bratislava/Slovakia last time. I had an opportunity to speak about our work on SLAVICAJ. I loved the atmosphere of the event and people I had a chance to meet there.

Once upon a time it gets nasty in Moment cafe :-)

Bleeding for our work - even on Sunday

We are coffee addicts and we love to trade our notebooks for the good coffee. Why to be paid by money and than to use them to buy something when we can just get that something without paying for it?

Today we started to work on our product video. We are so excited to see how that's gonna turn out
