    DESIGN: I don’t drink cola that often these days, but if I was going to I’d reach for a bottle of Karma Cola, produced by the New Zealand company All Good Organics Ltd who were recently announced as the winners of the “Fairest Fairtrader Award” for their use of ethically sourced foods. All good indeed!

    FILM: All The Way - a Charles Bukowski poem. Hard to know exactly how to categorise this… couldn’t put it into INSPIRATION, but there’s definitely something in here.
