I have a thing for yellow. Not just any yellow, but that very particular shade of almost-on-the-cusp-of-orange yellow. I think it may have something to do with playing with Lego too much as a child … and teenager … and adult … and, let's be honest, right now (please note: "Lego", not "Legos". If you say "Legos" then you aren't welcome around these parts, sonny).
So it started with those little smiley heads and c-shaped hands all over the carpet (apologies to my dad's feet) … and now that I'm a designer, it's like catnip. If I see something that colour – especially when combined with a nice mid-grey – chances are I'll like it just that little bit more. I'm collating all found legoflesh lovelies with Pinterest, this week's new thing for bookmarking images (so far it's rather good). A few highlights:
1958 Lego System Dealer Catalogue, from Brick Fetish.
Grafik cover by Michael Bojkowski.
It's Blitz by Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Fürst mechanical pencil from Herb Lester.
A picture of Dr B and myself in our little home office (from Wanken).
A big old pile of loveliness by Because Studio.
