Has anybody seen our intern?? These are the most recent pictures of him, haven't heard or seen from him since we started. We are worried he may have developed amnesia...

Please notify Yawn creative of any possible sightings or his recent movements. We are putting together a reconstruction of Vards last known steps, send us any recent photos that may help our investigation. Vards if your reading this please get in touch. 
We're not angry, just concerned!!

Stuart Griffiths

Here is a sample of work by photographer Stuart Griffiths. His work is really hard hitting often focusing on the more brutal sides of life, very thought provoking.

second glance

Had to double take here

Modern advice

Back to the Future

Irena Werning is the photographer responsible for these intriguing images. She confesses to being a 'nosey photographer' and thank goodness because this nosiness has resulted in a really interesting project. It just shows how peoples appearances change but at the same time dont... if you catch my drift.

Levis Viral

Levis have launched a new jean for woman called the curve id. They are marketing it with the usual bull shit angle “We believe women of all shapes should be able to find a pair of jeans that fit them instead of having to fit into the jeans,” but they have also launched a great viral into the cyber world to promote the jean. The idea is very clever in its simplicity aswel as being amusing. Take a moment to watch it.. its good.

London Design Awards 2011

Plumen 001, Hulger & Samuel Wilkinson, UK
Last week we got the train to Waterloo and walked the suprisingly long walk to the London Design Museum where the final nominations for the Brit Insurance Designs of the Year 2011 were being exhibited.
  On the first floor was a history of fashion design, as this is not our thing we skimmed over it quickly and headed up to take a look at the 'Main event'. The Exhibiton was interesting with designs ranging from books, through concrete shelters to sex aids for the physically impaired. The wide variety offered something to satisfy all tastes. One of the Designs that captured my attention immediately was a bizzarely shaped electric bicycle called 'The Yike'. My attention was first drawn to it due to its shape but also how bad i thought its name was. My opinion shifted however when i begun to watch the promotional video displaying just how efficiently it actually worked. It moved at a good speed across all mannor of terrains, was comfortable looking and capable of intricate maneuvers. It got me to thinking, i wonder if this could take off? Is there a place/want for this in todays world? and i suppose that is the point of the design awards, drawing a line of distinction between the ideas that are cool, clever and useful and ideas that really change the face of their industry. Sadly the amazing Yike didnt win its category and i think this is because it falls in to the first bracket of my this distinction.

 Boris Johnson's pay and ride Bike scheme was a winner at the awards. Rightfully so?

Right: My personal favourite entry, Swedish Interactive graphics agency Forsman & Bodenfors were nominated for the Graphics Award by David Kester for their Homemade is Best cookery book and iPhone app produced for their multinational client of 15 years, IKEA. As part of a larger marketing campaign for Swedish brand, Forsman & Bodenfors realised that excitement for a new IKEA kitchens could be harnessed by influencing the consumers idea of life within it.
A colourful, visually exciting introduction to Swedish baking, Homemade is Best presents 30 recipes in an innovative new fashion. Taking inspiration from Japanese minimalism these carefully composed graphic still lifes bring the ingredients centrestage, the result being a playful new look at the traditional presentation of cookery.
