Sweet & Spooky 3D Printing with The Sugar Lab & Josh HarkerSugar Lab was trying to think of some fun confections to make at The Sugar Lab for the occasion. They soon settled on 3D printed sugar El Día de los Muertos skulls–a modern take on a classic autumn sweet! They immediately contacted Josh Harker on Twitter. Being huge fans of his anatomical filigrees, this seemed like the perfect excuse to collaborate. It was great timing, because Josh had recently completed a new Day of the Dead ready piece called Cráneo de La Calaca, and was on his way to celebrate in Mexico. The results, rendered in chewy cotton candy flavored sugar, are sweetly stunning! They’re going to try to make enough for the trick-or-treaters on our block!
HOBO KNIFE / BEST MADE COMPANY
Every bit as applicable now as it was way back when it was deployed by the famous American migrant workers and vagabonds of the early 20th century, the hobo knife is a prerequisite for any outing or ramble. Throw one in the glove compartment, favorite pack, or the tackle box and when the chow bell rings you’ll arrive primed and ready. Employing a “slot and tab” mechanism the Hobo can be effortlessly disassembled into separate eating utensils, and quickly re-assembled into an effective locking blade pocket knife.
Jee Young Lee is a Korean artist that really knows how to convert her small studio space (11.8′ x 13.5′ x 7.8′) in Seoul, Korea into some really absurd and beautiful dreamscapes.
Every single detail is made by hand, from the lighting, the suspended objects and the center elements. Everything added into the set of taking one final photograph. Such a incredible act of determination of sharing her own stories and vision.

The Eye of Berlin by JR
French street arteest JR is taking to the streets of Germany with his project “Wrinkles of the City”, reproducing and pasting up images of elderly people who have experienced the transformation of Berlin and been so embedded in its evolution that they now step out from behind their lenses and become a part of the city itself. The looming eye of an unknown witness can be found at 25 Gustav meyer allee, if you feel like staring it down yourself.
Set the hype
with Hypeset the brand of HypeForType. They have taken famous designers and typographers and brought them together to produce exclusive, limited shirts and sweaters. So for example OMG is designed by Alex Trochut with his masterpiece font Trojan. We especially like the ambersand shirt which reminds us of the backside of our Lubalin book. We will have a book review soon on it. This is hype to wear, so enjoy or buy them.
Just because we are called “Freelancers”doesn’t mean we work for free.
