Quick Picks Week 2, 2014 – featuring advice for the newly engaged, typewritten art, and a 365 day clock.

Quick Picks

Welcome to 2014! To get things started right, here’s this week’s quick pick of internet finds. As usual, good things come in threes…


The Vintage Bride has some very sensible wedding planning advice for the newly engaged.

Wedding Window is one of an increasing number of sites out there for couples who want to set up a personal wedding website. They have free and paid options.

If you’re after a wedding fair with a difference, Lovelocked’s big {fake} wedding might be the thing for you. It’s on from 11am-3pm on Sunday 12 January 2014 at the Brisbane Powerhouse in New Farm. Tickets are $27.55 from their website. Note: This link will take you to a website with a video that may play automatically.

Art & Design

Artist Pablo Gamboa Santos used old technology to make new art by typing his qwerty project illustrations on an old typewriter. The final work is made up of hundred of pages of typed illustrations connected together to form a scene that’s almost 200 feet long.

Sticking with the theme of old technology meeting new, WIRED magazine have teamed up with Motorola to make what they claim is the world’s first interactive print ad. You’ll find it in select copies of the January edition of WIRED magazine. Note: This link will take you to a video that may play automatically.

I love photographer Cody William Smith’s A Moment’s Reflection series in which he twists the landscapes he’s photographing with some well placed mirrors.

Random Asides

The Present is a 365 day clock designed to show the passage of time from a slightly different perspective. I’ve added it to my wish list.

If you want the fresh perspective that a cleaner, more organised home gives to help you start the new year then Apartment Therapy’s January Cure might be just the thing. We’re on day five.

As someone with friends and family spread out around the world, I can thoroughly appreciate the sentiment behind Our Common Mug. It’s such a sweet idea.

That’s it for another week’s quick picks. Have a great weekend!
