My way or the highway

We were asked to paint up a sign that had ‘North Pole’ on it and was clearly part of some winter wonderland set in a previous life. We know not why. We were given no brief other than to give it a lick of paint. After sitting around thinking what to do for a while ‘My way or the highway’ is the somewhat inevitable result. I wish it well in it’s new incarnation wherever it ends up. Godspeed my odd little signpost…

Cheers

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions then we have just the product for you! id-iom’s new range of double sided demotivational posters are ideal to give you that extra little nudge you need to justify to yourself whatever decision you’re about to make. It’s that simple! Anyone can use them!

She’s on a 400 x 600mm wooden panel and is made using the magic of spraypaint, stencils and imagination. She even comes complete with id-iom’s ‘hang both ways’ copyrighted hanging mechanism. If you’d like to give her a new home then get in touch. I completely understand if you can’t be bothered today though…

Long way down

As Douglas Adams so rightly put it ‘It’s not the fall that kills you. It’s the sudden stop at the end’. Is this guy ever going to find that out? I could hardly resist a cheeky little unauthorised addition to the otherwise uninspiring flooring whilst up in Peterborough on the weekend. Have paint, will travel…

Mr Mayhem

When we got a call from Korp to see if we’d like to freshen up a large wall in Peterborough we jumped at the chance and ‘Mr Mayhem’ is the inevitable result. If you’ve seen Sons of Anarchy (which, if you’re unaware, is a TV series about gun-running biker gangs in California) then you’ll probably know that ‘meeting Mr. Mayhem’ is a club euphemism for killing someone. If you haven’t then now you do.

Now, I’m certainly not advocating violence of any kind but it got me to thinking about Mr Mayhem as a kind of mysterious character rather than a euphemism. And here he is. Resplendent with his ‘Mayhem’ ambigram. To me he’s like a dapper English gent version of Winston Wolfe from Pulp Fiction. Except he puts people into sticky situations rather than helping them out. And if he had wallpaper in his fictional house it would undoubtedly look something like this.

Flame on!

I found what must surely be the last of our id-iom lighters that we had printed up many moons ago and was thinking how best to take an interesting picture of it and this was the best I could come up with. It’s meant to look like I’ve caught a magically in-focus shot of it whilst it’s being thrown up in the air. Of course I have neither the manual dexterity nor photographic know-how to make that happen so did they next best thing and cheated. I’m pretty pleased with the result however I’m sure it’s not too hard to guess how I did it…

Entropy

Entropy. It gets us all in the end. These had weathered one winter too long outdoors so it was time to head to the big recycling centre in the sky. Sleep well my friends…
