We bring you a regular little round up of cool things we've seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in the loop...

This week, thanks to Instagram, we were introduced to DANIEL EMMA and to a minimalist wonder world of geometric forms, beautiful objects and things that are, well, 'just nice'. Based in Australia, creative duo Daniel To and Emma Aiston design and create all sorts of dreamy work - from large scale installations to desk top accessories. Their mission? To make products that make the everyday enjoyable. Scrolling through their Instagram feed definitely made our day more enjoyable! Take a look. 

This illustration by Jurg Lindenberger made us giggle. 'How To Babies'. If only! Do you recognise Jurg's work? You might have seen it in the pages of family favourite, Anorak Magazine

Digital games loaded on to iPads and portable gadgets are ace fun. But sometimes, just sometimes, nothing beats a board game. Gather your family around a Monopoly board and your nearest and dearest will reveal character traits you never knew they had! To get you in the mood for dusting off some analogue fun, take a trip to 'Game Plan', the latest exhibition at the V&A Museum of Childhood. You'll learn all about the history of board games, about the potential of games as educational tools and, of course, you'll get to drool over game + packaging design. The exhibition runs until Spring 2017. Plenty time!   

 

Fireworks Night divides opinion here at BleepBleeps HQ. Some of us can't wait to wrap up warm round a bonfire with sparklers in our hands. Some of us prefer to watch fancy displays from afar and some of us prefer to hide under a blanket with the dog 'til it's all over. Whether your kids enjoy Fireworks Night or would rather stay home, we can't resist sharing this amazing collection of vintage firework packaging compiled by Delicious Industries via The Fireworks Heritage Museum. The colours, the graphics, the typography... POW! Go on, enjoy five minutes of design sparkiness.

 

 

Until next time!

The Loop #31

This week in The Loop we dream of sunnier, warmer climes with help from photographer Nick Frank and his Candlyland project, we give artist Morag Myerscough a big high five for doing such a marvellous job of revamping the Sheffield Children's Hospital and we dig out our glo-sticks in preparation for a family rave up! To maximise the cosy vibes, we devote five minutes to just enjoying Elizabeth Pawle's dreamy textile art.

The Loop #30

This week in The Loop the kids flex their critical and creative muscles as they get ready to take part in Anorak Magazine's Little Editors Scheme, we covet the colourful furniture project by Muller Van Severen and our penchant for a Lego brick gets a boost with Dutch design workshop Brikkon. It's a good 'un!

The Loop #29

This week in The Loop we get excited about the Institute of Imagination's first ever Live Lab event (it sounds GREAT!), we smile at Zenji Funabashi's wooden sculptures and we warm up at Sunny Side Up - an exhibition all about the colour yellow, by Josef Albers.
