Anything mildly amusing

Bog Standards

Trawling through our ‘irreverent-but-interesting-research-snippets’ folder earlier on, we rediscovered a bathroom-focused infographics example from a while back and thought it was perhaps time to show it again.

Especially as toilet humour opinions are even more topical now that Andrex have revealed the results of their  recent (and let’s be honest, massively over-sharing) Scrunch or Fold bum-wiping social media engagement campaign:

Anyhow, onto onto the paper-hanging debate. If nothing else, the visual we’ve included below demonstrates that no topic or theme is  ever ‘off limits’ for the burgeoning infographics trend, using the tried and tested principle of combining analysis and information flow through an accessible graphic narrative.

For the record, the Space office voted near-unanimously for the over method of storing their personal toilet paper, so no debate here in our WC (2E 7HF).

Time for Eastenders

Trimfit Illustration Project

Last week, hipsters and trend setters alike flocked to Soho to attend the launch of the Brutus Trimfit Illustration Project and again, the team from Space were on hand to see what all the fuss was about. Once we managed to battled our way through the vast queue of freezing fashionable folk, we were able to find out….

The aim of the project was to encourage artists to look at the shirts like a canvas and Brutus selected 12 British artists to draw, paint and print directly onto them resulting in a unique and diverse collection of handmade pieces. From illustrations of London landmarks, Aztec prints and tie-dye there was certainly something for everyone!

Our client Desperados was on hand to supply the drinks whilst illustrator Arran Gregory gave a live art show to provide the backdrop for a night of creativity, fun and a little bit of East London cool thrown into the heart of Soho.

Equine Tasting

Horse meat Tesco

With the bizarre news that a range of burgers from Tesco actually contain traces of horse meat, maybe now is an ideal time for some decisions.

  • Time to resist using any more dodgy puns.
    (Thoroughbred and Butter, Tesco Cheval(ue), Foal Play, etc, etc)
  • Time to look more closely at providers of ingredients to chain stores.
  • Time to question what all the fuss might be about.
  • Time to consider whether horse meat is a viable food source in the UK.
  • Time to become a vegetarian.
  • Time to get on with some more work.

Or perhaps it’s simply time to share a topical meat and cooking related infographic – like this handy ‘cheat sheet’ for kitchens from everest.co.uk

Although there are a multitude of apps, gizmos and gadgets that do a similar job, we reckon that this is a great effort at conveying a multitude of information in one place, in a nice retro-tinged design layout.

All it’s missing is a section on our horseshoe wearing friends…
