"Cristina and Cyla painted a wall in Bushwick, Brooklyn, as a tribute to the great poet Paulo Leminski who would be 70 years old in August 2014. We are very grateful to our new friend Nev (No Entry Design), for all the support and contact with Livestream Public who gave us the opportunity to paint this mural at the corner of Morgan Ave & Stagg St."

Criatipos emerged alongside the professional career of designers Cris, Cyla, Doo and Jack as a means to escape from the digital realm and to bring back handmade processes, blending work and fun to communicate in a unique approach.

"This project is a homage to the tv series we couldn’t stay away from in recent times: Breaking Bad, Dexter, Lost, Mad Men and Homeland. 

The collection consists of five thematic posters based on typographical cuts of paper and cardboard. We tried to represent the spirit of each series by pointing out the most important statements and situate them in their typical ambience using characteristic elements and moods.”

The Shoe Bakery makes cake and ice cream shaped shoes good enough to eat 

TUMBLR / ETSTY/ FACEBOOK / INSTAGRAM / PINTEREST

It’s a common adage that when something looks amazing, we feel like we could eat it up. But in the case of these shoes, we can’t tell if we’re astounded or hungry. If you love shoes, and cake, we’ve found the ideal footwear for you.

The Shoe Bakery is a shoe store in Orlando, Florida, founded by Chris Campbell, an artist who wanted to combine his love of shoe and sweet treats, and started designing shoes shaped like cakes and ice cream. The Shoe Bakery started life as an Etsy store, but the incredible popularity of his designs has meant The Shoe Bakery has opened up its own independent store.

Each amazing pair of shoes is handmade to order - and are so incredibly realistic that the site includes on its FAQ list a disclaimer that they definitely are not edible. Chris says that “in order to make it look like frosting, we use the same tools that bakers use such as the icing bags and tips.”
