So Mermaid School is a Thing

In the heat of the New York summer, Gothamist associate editor Rebecca Fishbein and videographer Jessica Leibowitz spent a day in Coney Island, Brooklyn visiting the World of Swimming‘s Mermaid School. The skilled instructors at the school teach the students how to swim like a mermaid, a feat that requires a great deal of core strength, and in doing so, encourage self-confidence and pride. Ummm ok, sure…it’s all fun and games until someone drowns. Merman…Merman! 😉

IKEA Announce Collaboration with HAY Design

IKEA drop teaser launching their new 'YPPERLIG' collection with HAY

In advance of their new line for 2017, IKEA are set to release teasers announcing their new collaborative ‘YPPERLIG’ collection with Danish furniture company HAY. This first video is as cleverly cryptic as it is surreal and follows the path of a glass ball through an empty apartment – a great way of staying creative without showing any of the new products. The video itself was a collaboration between three different agencies, Kühl & SolvstromNikextension, and Barkas. Can’t wait to see what they come out with next – watch this space 🙂

CNN Remembers the Golden Age of Aviation

CNN recalls when airlines were selling dreams & high-end luxury

CNN: Transporting us back to the golden age of aviation, CNN have compiled a selection of vintage photographs from a time when airlines were selling globetrotting dreams and high-end luxury. The exact opposite of today’s low cost carriers, these photographs from the 50s and 60s remind us that air travel was once synonymous with fashion, cocktails, luxury, glamour, gastronomy, and social status although it did come at a price – a Sydney to London round trip cost the equivalent of thirty weeks wages! Happy Flashback Friday 🙂
