Cape Town coffee craze

We’re always amazed at the amount of coffee bars in Cape Town (which I guess is a good thing for coffee consumption, productivity and general happiness). We recently discovered a new one to add to the list: Gusto Cafeteria.

Apparently they are more than just a coffee shop, but isn’t everyone these days?

Check them out and let us know. They are based in Gardens 117 Hatfield road.

Fresh

The balaklava boys from @andanonymous have been busy launching this crazy water brand: Evige. To be honest I’m too lazy to type out the whole who, what and why… check it out here.

Apparently the water is really good, what’s not to love about Coconut flavoured water?! Right?

Right.

Now where to get said water?

Del Rey Tuesday

Lana’s back with a new track titled ‘West Coast’. Not a bad track but what the hell is going on with this video? The vide feels like it’s Lana Groundhog day.

Happy Tuesday and a four day week.

Cobain & Cats

It’s been 20 years since Kurt Cobain’s death so it kinda feels right to dedicate this #throwbackThursday to the leading man from Nirvana.

10 things you probably didn’t know about Kurt: http://www.anothermag.com/current/view/3530/Ten_Things_You_Might_Not_Know_About_Kurt_Cobain

Love this pic of him and his daughter, looked like a nice guy.

In the same spirit as yesterday’s post here is another look at the world from above.

Beautiful aerial photography by Zack Seckler.

Clearly a fan of the cow :)

Throwback Thursday

The pope and bovril! You have to love a piece of old school advertising coupled with some religious affiliation. Now that’s product endorsement.

Priceless.

Monday illustration education

Nothing like a bit of local design flavour to kick off a Monday morning.

A great project on Xhosa names and their meanings by Thandiwe Tshabalala.
