Design Trend: The Modern Banner

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

I’ve come across a recent design trend. It’s a very clean, simple, modern banner graphic. There’s a beautiful shop in Gastown using this in their logo. (Old Faithful Shop)

Have you discovered more of these banners? If so, comment below with some links! Or send us a tweet @cowieandfox

Vancouver Whitecaps: New logo

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Today the Vancouver Whitecaps revealed their new logo. It’s much more modern, clean, contemporary and “pro.” The reflected peaks can also be interpreted as V’s for Vancouver or W’s for Whitecaps.

What do you think?

Carded! Vancouver Art Show

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

On February 27th I checked out a sweet art show on Granville street. You walk in, purchase a $5 pack of mystery cards created by various artists, then you open them up and start trading with people in the gallery. It’s the most socially fun art show i’ve ever been too. I’m totally looking forward to checking out their other event Hot One Inch Action.

If you want to submit art or just check it out sometime, go here: http://www.hotartcard.com

$15 bucks later and some awesome trading, this is what I settled with:

Summer Storm

Monday, July 27th, 2009

On the weekend Vancouver had some amazing weather. Perfect sunshine, blue skies, then suddenly rain and clouds came out of no where along with a really intense thunderstorm. It’s been a very long time since i’ve seen fork lightning in this city, and for so many hours too! Too top that all off there was this intense firey sunset which ended with the HSBC Celebration of Light Fireworks.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to take any photos or video, but I did find this wonderful little timelapse showing just how crazy the day was.
