Recycled Plastic

Following a recent trip to Bali, I couldn’t get over how much plastic rubbish there was in the sea, even though I was diving in a protected National Park.

The Lost & Found Team are always keen to support and promote environmental projects. Industrial designer Carter Zufelt has developed a process that turns old plastic bags into objects that he calls Müll, which are not only beautiful, they’re useful.

Instead of letting plastic bags sit in a landfill where they can take up to 1000 years to breakdown, Zufelt decided to experiment to see if he could make something out of the discarded material. The result is a colorful marble-like material that he’s turned into desktop organizers, cubes, a stool, and a table.

Death to Stock

We appreciate that stock imagery has its place but wherever possible we try to encourage our clients to commission images unique to them and their brand, not only will they be left with images that no one else has, they will also have complete freedom to apply them how and when they want to. It is an opportunity to expand the brand too, creating a unique style.

Then Death to Stock came along. We consider this to be a great compromise. Perhaps not suited to all companies and brands, this idea was born out of the need for fresh imagery, less staged and formulaic, but at a reasonable price. It also allow amateur photographers to share their work and receive a mall return, rather than letting beautiful images sit on a hard drive or in Dropbox.

Fat Boys Do DW

This year, as always, we are very proud to support the Fat Boys do DW team – a fantastic group of people from Cheltenham who each year amaze us, taking on the Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race.

The Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race starts in Devizes, Wiltshire, finishing just downstream of Westminster Bridge in central London, opposite the Houses of Parliament. The race has been held annually over the Easter Weekend since 1948. The race is 125 miles long and has 77 portages.

From a drunken conversation between two brothers in 2013, the team has evolved and grown and now they are a much-loved part of this historic race, with support lining the banks, hopefully wearing branded hoodies and hats!

This year we once again branded the boys, going for a more traditional logo and theme compared to previous Top Gun and military themes.
