By Kira Heuer in New Photography on Wednesday 7 November 2012

I’ve been keeping an eye on this soul surfing, tribal exploring, nomadic spirited photographer for a while now. He captures something in his work that tells the ‘real’ story.

He also has some good tunes on his website, so as you do your scrolling, put some melodies on to compliment your viewing.

By Kira Heuer in New Eco on Friday 20 January 2012

Fly Canvas’s brilliantly designed carry bags with a conscience begs the question: ‘what do you carry in your bag?’ While you list the goodies you would put in these rootsy-chic numbers, I can only list what the bags themselves carry. A message to empower through education. We can learn a lot from these guys and […]

Lego helmet makes comic book sound effects louder

Kira Heuer Reader Find

By Kira Heuer in New Trends on Thursday 28 April 2011

Good ol’ LEGOS, they are always so clever. Take this new super-hero helmet that reads the comic strip captions aloud while you flip through the pages.
