Writers Block - The Coffee Table via #kickstarter
The Writers Block coffee table via kickstarter takes on the playful guise of a giant scrunched up ball of paper, handmade in Paris. It's a unique blend of form and materials that captures the ups and downs of the creative process. The geometry of crumpled paper is so inherently strong and complex it has physicists and supercomputers baffled. Writers Block enhances this form using a combination of finishes and bio-resins, capped off with toughened glass.

Seeking content creators #fbm17 WILDCARD
Win a stand at the Frankfurter Buchmesse with the Wildcard. Do you publish content? Win us over with your idea for a stand and join us as an exhibitor, free of charge, at the world’s largest fair for content. The time is here again: For the third year in a row, the Frankfurter Buchmesse is awarding its Wildcard. Provide convincing answers to three questions regarding your exhibition concept to win the grand prize: an 8-sqm-stand at the world’s largest fair for content. In addition to traditional publishers, all producers of creative content are encouraged to participate: illustrators, game developers, corporate publishers, vloggers, bloggers, photographers and many others. For last year’s Wildcard, we received 140 applications from 30 countries. They included, among others, self-marketing author collectives, recipe app developers and providers of digital media for young people. Here is what the winners of the last two Wildcards had to say:
“Winning the Wildcard was a milestone in our company’s brief history. I’d even venture to say that things never would have moved forward as quickly without the attention it brought us: Just a few months later we were taken over by Ullstein Buchverlage GmbH”, reports Felix Plötz of Plötz & Betzholz Verlag.
“The Wildcard was a great opportunity to call attention to our multimedia textbook (mBook). Moreover, with the ‘Edu Couch’ we were able to create a space for the topic of digital education, helping inspire new ideas”, says Benjamin Heinz, CMO of the Institut für digitales Lernen (Institute for Digital Learning).
Interested in winning a stand at the Frankfurter Buchmesse with the Wildcard? Then register and submit your application here by 31 May 2017

Volvic - Terroir and Tetrahedrons.
Team Creatif USA is a strategic brand packaging agency committed to creating and developing designs that validate choice.
The source of Volvic water is a lush, preserved ecosystem in the volcanic region of Auvergne, France. 6,000-year-old layers of volcanic rock provide filter and flavor worthy of such a backdrop.
With this environ as reference, our structural design team dug deeper to create a custom form that does more than capture the essence of the rugged geography. The new 1-liter bottle – with its angular design and a co-injected cap – is also easier to use.
Purity and purpose straight from the source.
Designer: Team Creatif USA
