Ok, these are not official LEGO pieces but who doesn’t love the idea of a LEGO and Game of Throne collaboration?
Citizen Brick has re-used LEGO elements, that have been repackaged or altered from their original form, to create 12 different mini figures, which are available in four different sets of three . It says “every sets comes with crazy detailing: uniquely pad printed body parts, weapons, and custom cloth elements.” Cool. You can buy them here, but they aren’t cheap – $220 per set.
Scooped from LikeCOOL.

Nice. Some new work from PES. I love PES. And I love that this new film, commissioned by Italian designer Delfina Delettrez, is a little different from their past work, which often features everyday objects in unexpected situations.
The film, “Black Gold,” features insects that appear in Delettrez’s latest line of jewelry. You can view the collection here.

My Mom recently gave me these beautiful Hudson’s Bay Company playing cards. I’m totally in love with the illustrations and they are too pretty not to share. I wish I knew who designed them. Anyone know?

There are a lot of great logos and designs in Canada. To celebrate that, Ottawa-based design firm Northern Army has created a website dedicated to archiving these great designs. Their new website, Northern Army Preservation Society of Canada, is a compendium of some of the best Canadian logos ever designed.
Currently the site has 186 logos and counting. It would be great if the site offered a search feature – can you guys add that? Side note, I’d like to mention how much I miss the old Windsor Salt box design. That was some great design. They should bring it back as the current one pales in comparison.

This is just making me hungry. Those who read glossy often, know that I like projects that play with food.
German graphic designer Fabienne Plangger has collaborated with David Reiner, Sebastian Hierner and Karin Stöckl to create this monochromatic series of breakfast foods. Yummy except for the coloured breads. Those just look gross.
