I am loving this radio from Science & Sons. It's definitely making it's way around the Canadian design blog world. Clever idea for sure. One national radio company, two channels; one radio, two presets, one big switch. You use a tuner on the bottom to preset 1 & 2 to CBC1 & CBC2, and then flip away. The grill is a clear homage to the classic CBC logo we all know and love. I'm sure it'll be way out of my price range when it actually comes out, and I never actually listen to CBC2, but I am definitely coveting it, and you can hook an ipod up to it (also good, because most of what I listen to from CBC1 I actually listen to as podcasts anyway...)
Lejonet & Bjornen. This Swedish ice cream company's new packaging was featured on Lovely Package, but what I was really struck by was that logo! That bear WANTS that ice cream. Will he ever get it?

From what I can see of their old logo, this new one is a huge improvement. The old one looks like too much teddy, not enough bear.
Disney shut down Miramax this week. At one point in time they produced some of my favourite films, and they've definitely been a part of a lot of good stuff, with and without the Weinsteins. Check out what Kevin Smith says about it in there: "for one brief, shining moment, it was an age of magic and wonders. I'm crushed to see it pass into history, because I owe everything I have to Miramax. Without them, I'd still be a New Jersey convenience store register jockey. In practice, not just in my head."
I wish this squirrel weren't so expensive!
