Understanding Berlin’s Pink Pipes with @Berlinstagram
Berlin is one big swamp—or at least it used to be. Distinctive pink pipes twist through the city to the nearest river or canal. As groundwater levels are very high, this prevents the city from submerging into a giant puddle.
The pipes are designed to withstand shrinkage or breakage in extreme temperatures, and the distinct pink color is the result of a study which found this color is preferred by both youth and older generations who are young at heart. Berlin Instagrammer Michael Schulz (@berlinstagram) created the #thatpipeagain hashtag to capture them. “The pink pipes are quite iconic for Berlin,” he says. “When I first visited the city 20 years ago and came across them, I was fascinated and irritated at once—and those pipes stuck to my mind as a characteristic thing of the city.” Now, people all over Berlin use the hashtag to spark conversation about the pink pipes and capture them from different angles throughout the city.
32 | 64 | 90 is an international creative showcase, featuring a curated group of 32 creatives from the 32 competing countries in this year’s World Cup. Representing their national teams, the creatives will produce original 90 minute artworks that document their nation’s journey through the tournament.
After each match, the artworks by creatives from the two competing nations are presented side by side documenting their team’s performance and fortunes. Match by match, in victory and defeat, triumph and disaster, the collected images from the 64 matches in the tournament will provide a unique creative expression of the ‘World Cup muse’ as it has visited each team, each country and each creative.
Created and supported by Uniform, we aim to publish a limited edition book cataloging all the entries and auction selected prints, in order to raise funds for a nominated charity.
We’re excited to think that the finished project will express something of the unpredictability, inspiration and vibrancy of the game itself.

In response to Todd McLellan, I created my own visuals of objects which I took apart, which we no longer have any use for.

The Story of The Sat Nav
In response to the work Alan Kitching, I produced my own print created with the use of letterpress. The print represents a conversation between two people using a sat-nab, trying to find their destination. The contrasting colours represent whoever is speaking. Even though we rely so heavily on technology it seems that we always get frustrated when it goes wrong. Yet we are all to lazy to use a traditional method such as map reading.
//stack magazines - magazines that matter
Steve Watson the founder of stack magazines has created not only a community for those who are very fond of independent publishing and editorial design but also a service which selects the best independent magazines and delivers them direct to your door every month.
"I started Stack because I think people want something better to read. There are piles of fantastic magazines out there just waiting to be discovered, and Stack makes it cheaper and easier than ever for people to find and enjoy them.”
"It’s hard work for small independent publishers to reach readers – there are only a handful of shops around the world that offer a really great selection of titles, and that number is shrinking all the time. Stack brings you the joy of discovering great independent publishing, but with less hassle and at a lower cost than the shops.”
Personally it’s a privilege to be part of the Stack Student Union as not only does the Stack magazine inspire creatives through the use of it’s blog (http://www.stackmagazines.com/blog/) but also Stack magazine brings awareness globally to those who may not of heard about these beautiful independent magazines.
Logos and their hidden meaning
When it comes to logo design, you know you’ve succeeded when your wordmark is instantly recognisable, even when it’s recreated with totally different words.
Swedish designer Victor Hertz plays on this idea brilliantly in his series of ‘Honest Logos’, revealing - in his own words - “the actual content of the company, what they really should be called”.
