a few things discovered via coudal partners. first up is the A-list. a group of designers were asked to select their favourite A. my favourite is this fat 70s feeling A.
also vinyl collectibles had an open call for the general public to submit designs in a toy competition - with the winner having their toy produced. the finalists have been selected. you can vote here. i wasn't all that thrilled with the finalists. it's not that they are bad, but very few of them would i want to buy. which may just say more about the kinds of toys i like than the quality of the toys.
