The Daddy Long Legs is an extremely rare and special fortified wine, making it one of Australia’s most expensive fortifieds. Its production is limited to the contents of only two remaining barrels set aside for over 40 years, making its quantity limited and its quality exceptional. The barrel shed that housed the wine is inhabited by hundreds of ‘Daddy Long Leg’ spiders who have kept a watchful eye over these barrels for decades. Incredible idea and next level production by Voice Design.

Last weekend saw Canberra host the 2017 AGDA Awards. While there was a selection of well-deserved wins for some incredible work there was also, in my opinion, a stack of amazing work that was not recognised. Here’s a small selection of work that didn’t win and left me scratching my head. Vista by Voice Design, Dasher + Fisher by Co-Partnership, Bare Witness by RE, Shortys by The Colour Club, Shop Around by Toko and D’Angelo Coffee by Band.

Who Gives A Crap is an eco-friendly toilet paper company that donates 50% of it’s profits to help build toilets for those in need. It was launched in 2012 and has already donated over $428,500 to help fund sanitation projects in developing countries.

For Christmas this year they commissioned a range from the Jacky Winter Group, with 12 Australian artists contributing designs. The results are a burst of colour and fun in an otherwise crappy category (zing!). Great name, great cause, great design.
