The day has arrived that I can announce some very exciting news that I have been bursting to tell you all for the last few months.

I was contacted by The Impossible Project regarding my Polaroid inspired prints and the possibility of selling them in their New York store. I was extremely excited about the prospect and incredibly flattered. This then evolved into the idea of doing an exclusive Impossible version and here it is.

If you haven’t heard of The Impossible Project (then where have you been!?) they are the team of people who in 2008 saved the very last Polaroid production plant for integral instant film in Enschede (NL) and started to invent and produce totally new instant film materials for traditional Polaroid cameras. In 2010 Impossible saved analog instant photography from extinction by releasing various brand new and unique instant films. By doing so more than 300,000,000 perfectly functioning Polaroid cameras were saved from becoming obsolete.

The print is now available for $75 in their New York store in SoHo but if you can’t make it there and would like one then this could be your lucky day because…yes…we are giving one away!

All you have to do is leave a comment and then one very lucky winner will be randomly chosen. Closing time and date is 4 pm Friday 24th June 2011 (UK time) and the winner will be announced shortly afterwards. International comments are welcome.

Comments are moderated so it may take a while for them to appear. If you are anonymous then please leave a name in your comment.

Good luck everyone!

UPDATE! This giveaway has now ended and the winner will be announced very soon!

I’m missing Mad Men so much! Are you!? I cannot wait for it to be gracing our screens again. I wonder if there is a therapy group for withdrawal?…

Anyhoo, I’ve wanted to create a Mad Man inspired print for a while now and here it is. It’s available as a print at the moment but will soon be available as a 50cm x 70cm poster in my Etsy shop Yumalum. It can also vbe viewed/framed either way up.

I took the photographs of the Chrysler Building and The Empire State Building used in the design when we were last in New York. We may be going again in May…

…I’ve just bought this fantastic Mad Men inspired poster which is a collaboration between Print Mafia and Hero Design Studio.

It is the second print in their ongoing Mad Men series and is a tribute to episode six of season two called “Maidenform”. The poster is a two colour silkscreen and is 16″ x 20″. It can be hung either way up to reflect your inner Marilyn or Jackie.

The poster cost $25 and each one is signed and numbered but be quick because there are only 150 available!

I think I may be a Marilyn…which one are you?

…I swooned when I came across these gorgeous vintage Knoll posters/advertisments. They were designed by the Swiss designer Herbert Matter. There is a timelessness about them just like the design classics that they are showcasing. They still look as fresh and vibrant as when they were designed.

Herbert Matter was a design consultant for Knoll from 1946 – 1966 and was responsible for the Knoll logo, numerous advertisements, posters and the catalogue format.
