How To Draw Critical Design Insights From A Single Photograph: Lessons From Frog

Jon Freach, design research director at frog, explains why snapping pictures can make all the difference for you and your client.

Henri Cartier Bresson once said, “Sometimes there is one unique picture whose composition possesses such vigor and richness, and whose content so radiates outward from it, that this single picture is a whole story in itself.”

B&O PLAY A9 Black Edition

Surely one of the most striking examples of home audio development to emerge in recent times, the B&O Play A9 from Bang & Olufsen has been given a slick new makeover. For those who believe nothing is a classic until it’s available in black, this new model comes in a flawlessly dark matte finish and sits atop three slender walnut legs designed to give the unit an attractive, gently curved silhouette from any angle.

Inside you’ll find a state-of-the-art one point music system that streams audio entirely wirelessly via AirPlay, DLNA, Spotify Connect, and conventional Wi-Fi. Meanwhile, the 8″ woofer, twin 3” mids, and two ¾” tweeters provide the kind of superlative sound quality you would expect from one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of audio equipment. On sale now in certain countries via the B&O website and select physical stores.

Parabellum Pairs TrackR Locator Technology with New Accessories

Parabellum recently partnered with TrackR, incorporating their locator technology into a brand new wallet and keychain. The small TrackR devices wirelessly connect to your iPhone or Android via the Parabellum TrackR app. The app monitors the location of your items and enables you to find either of the items in three swipes or less. When separated from your goods by 100 feet, both your phone and items begin to beep, followed by a GPS pin of the location of the TrackR is initiated. Constructed from high-quality, free-range bison leather, the new accessories are now available for preorder at Parabellum.

Ted Baker Glasgow Store Opening

Ted Baker Glasgow Store Opening

Just a few days ago we were invited to Join Ted Baker’s Ray Kelvin for dinner in Glasgow followed by a store breakfast to celebrate the opening of the new Ted Baker Glasgow premises. 

We were joined by photographer of the moment Garcon Jon, Straight talking The Chic Geek and the beautiful ladies, Five Five Fabulous and The Style Traveller.

We dined at Two Fat Ladies restaurant while being treated to a couple or Ray’s signature and borderline offensive stories – all the ingredients for a fine evening of laughter. 

The following morning breakfast was served by Bompas & Parr, which was a mind blowing concoction of scientific foods, even Heston Blumenthal would be proud of.

It was then when our ‘My 3D Twin’ dolls were unveiled. These freakishly accurate 3D version of ourselves are made using 3D printing technologies and are quite weird to look at. 

Looking around the store it is evident that a lot of hard work has gone into the finer details of the interiors. An overwhelming mix of antiques, industrial equipment, scientific tools, digital screens and things too weird to categorise take up the majority of the wall space.

However, there was a theme to these interior bits-and-bobs, which actually took 2-3 years to collect exclusively for this opening. 

They were themed ‘Great Scots’, representing many of the different historic Scottish inventions such as the Telephone and Penicillin.

Glasgow is actually the home of Ted’s first ever store back in 1988, when Ray opened his doors as a shirt specialist and offered complimentary dry cleaning to his returning customers. 

Also on display was the first ever Ted Baker men’s satchel born in 1988, with modern versions available exclusively from within this store soon.
