"Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues"
Bob Dylan / 1965


When you're lost in the rain in Juarez when it's Easter time, too
And your gravity fails and negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs when you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there and they really make a mess outta you

Now, if you see Saint Annie, please tell her thanks a lot
I cannot move, my fingers are all in a knot
I don't have the strength to get up and take another shot
And my best friend, my doctor, won't even say what it is I've got
Sweet Melinda, the peasants call her the goddess of gloom
She speaks good English and she invites you up into her room
And you're so kind and careful not to go to her too soon
And she takes your voice and leaves you howling at the moon

Up on Housing Project Hill, it's either fortune or fame
You must pick one or the other, though neither of them are to be what they claim
If you're lookin' to get silly, you better go back to from where you came
Because the cops don't need you, and man, they expect the same

Now, all the authorities, they just stand around and boast
How they blackmailed the sergeant-at-arms into leaving his post
And picking up Angel, who just arrived here from the coast
Who looked so fine at first but left looking just like a ghost

I started out on burgundy but soon hit the harder stuff
Everybody said they'd stand behind me when the game got rough
But the joke was on me, there was nobody even there to bluff
I'm going back to New York City, I do believe I've had enough

Craig Ward — In Loving Memory of Colour
New York City, USA


Craig Ward is a British Designer and Creative Director, currently based in New York City. As an artist, who has also contributed to several industry journals, he is known primarily for his pioneering typographic works. In this piece, however, he uses orange powder to create a stunning burst of colour and texture.

“I'll be the first to admit it, colour terrifies me. I don't know if I just missed that week in art class or at college, but I never feel like I've had a great grasp of working with it,” Craig says.

We disagree.

Christof Nüssli — Amok
Zurich, Switzerland


Amok is André Gelpke‘s personal commentary on the absurdities of our world. True to the artist’s motto, “photography is a whore, never faithful, always feigning,” Gelpke uses the medium to formulate his subjective view of the world. Without being explanatory or anecdotal, he examines, with the help of the camera, the small, naturally occurring settings of everyday life.

Joanna Copperman — Out of Sight
Bristol, United Kingdom


Joanna Copperman is a graphic designer and illustrator from Bristol. A recent graduate from Shillington College, she discovered her passion for design after first studying illustration at Camberwell University.

“I finally found graphic design and realized that was my real passion,” Copperman says on her website. “Rather than just creating the illustrations, I became interested in the different ways they can be used and applied to design.”

We are infatuated with her packaging work for Out of Sight, which is possibly the most gorgeous bottle of beer that we have ever seen.

Morpho Studio — Pride & Glory Interactive
Kraków, Poland


Designed by Morpho Studio’s Justyna Friedberg, the gorgeous office of Kraków-based Pride & Glory Interactive pays respect to the industrial character of their neighborhood. The Zabłocie district of Kraków was once home to many factories and industrial plants, with a lot of the original architecture now being revived as the neighborhood transforms into an arts and creative community.

Something neat: The reception desk featured is made of wooden boards obtained after the demolition of a 100-year-old house owned by one of Pride & Glory’s owners.
