Gosh… It has been a while since I wrote my last blog post, as all my time is spent working or travelling or doing both at the same time. So, this time I want talk to you about Michael. _More
I think to most of us Nokia associates with nostalgia. First phone, first sms… Today Design Museum is opening its door and invites its visitor to a journey back and to a coming future. By the way , the first mass-market phone Nokia 1011 is celebrating its 20th anniversary! Happy birthday!

Kasia Jetkowska has kindly shared few pictures of the Design Faction exhibition that is currently taking place in Lódz (Poland) and is part of Poland Design Week 2011. Pictures – Maya Art.
Last week one of the biggest design talks – Typo London 2011 Places was storming the capital of England. With the most impressive speakers list – it was a total temptation that was difficult to resist. Unfortunately, due to last minute change of plans, I’ve managed to see only 1 speaker – Morag Myerscough, who was as always – brilliant!
Last evening, small Text gallery based in WC1 was completely packed with people who came to the opening of Imaginary Menageries exhibition, where 19 designers from all around the world were exhibiting their tongue-twisting interpretations. It was very sweet to to watch and listen to people trying to read the tongue twisters in perfection, not just in English, but in Russian, Spanish and other languages as well.
This summer a lot of important changes have happened in my little world, so from now please look for me under the name of Vilma Vaiciule. Bye bye Jaruseviciute!

Wim Crouwel is called one of the leading graphic designers of the twentieth century, and I think, this name is given to him for a reason.
Last night we (the studio) went to the launch of Nokia Pure typeface at Tramshed, Rivington Street, where Morag Myerscough alongside other great designers, such as Alex Trouchet, Bond, Build, Cartlidge Levene, DesignStudio, HelloVon, Nokia Design, Non-Format, North, Practise, Value & Service & Z.A.K were exhibiting her installation of 20 PURE stools.
One of the best girls time ever!!!! Sara, we should go and do things there again! And in the same way we did in June 2010. _More
On 12 November Kin Design was celebrating studio’s second birthday party. I popped in there to congratulate Matt and Kevin (I’ve met them, when we were doing a joint project, while I was still studding at Goldsmiths), and to say hello to my course friends: Avril, Clair and Max who work there. hahahaha funny enough, I’ve managed to park my bike in ‘somebody’s’ private yard, and when it was time to head home, I found the gates – locked and I walked all the way home, while Mindaugas was slowly cycling alongside of me. What a silly cow…
Once again I am in John Pawson’s Plain Space.
Today in the studio we did a quick exercise to mark this nice today’s date:
20 10 2010. Here are my versions.
This mid-autumn morning has met us with warm weather and a lot of sunshine. An amazing day to spend outdoors, especially to cycle in Hyde Park. We stopped by Anish Kapoor’s installation and had few pictures done there. This installations has brought me back to my childhood, to times when almost every Sunday my parents were taking me and my sister to children theme park in Klaipeda. One of the attractions there – was a mirror room full of different mirrors which were distorting our images. Today I was playing again, like I used to do it when I was little.
Thank you for spoiling my weekend and closing that amazing installation in Turbine’s Gallery before I’ve managed to get there.There is no point to go and see it from the bridge. It is the same as to lick honey through the jar. Thank you.
After seeing so many stuffed birds at 80-artists-100-hours exhibition and inspired by them, coming back to studio in 3 minutes time I have retraced Marcus Mitchell’s piece that was selling for £400.
Hey! Spot the difference !
