Oh joy! Star Wars pictures using Microsoft Paintbrush on Windows 3.1

"While in middle school during the late 1990s, my twin brother and I made hundreds of pixelated Star Wars pictures using Microsoft Paintbrush on Windows 3.1." 

...is what one of the brother designers of these gems says, also that they will be posting a new picture every day during the lead-up to Star Wars Episode 7 - I will be visiting frequently.

Memory Lane...Sky Active & Sky Gamestar iTV UI (2006 and before...)


Just came across video capture of projects I worked on a lifetime ago (well not that long, pre-2006 but it feels like a lifetime). Sky Active and Sky Gamestar on the SkyTV interactive platform.

Sky Active was a video fronted interactive TV portal that linked you to all of Sky's interactive services, and Sky Gamestar was the interactive gaming platform featuring favourites such as the ever popular Beehive Bedlam and Who wants to be a Millionaire. Brilliant to work on it all that time ago...*sniffs*



The Muson Synthesizer, 1978

This may just be the coolest synth I've ever soon, the Muson Synthesizer is a rare mini organ with a built-in sequencer, created in 1978 by Mego Corp.

About the Muson Synthesizer, miniorgan.com says:

Kind of a ROLAND TB-303 but much cooler & cheaper – still cheaper… The coloured buttons can be used to change the melody and rhythm. Each color has a different tune. You can also change the speed and pitch of the sequence with 2 sliders. This was also released by Palitoy in the UK.


TFL 'Tour De France' Posters by M&C Saatchi

During last week's Tour De France I noticed these simple, clever posters on the tube driving awareness to the expected travel disruption. Beautifully illustrated and modernist inspired, a bold graphic statement shining through the visual clutter one sees on London's transport system. Added to my Transport and Travel Pinterest collection and no mistake.
