What to Watch out for When Creating a Shopping List: Free Range Products Myth 04.03.2015

In today’s world, people are becoming more and more aware of the importance of having good, healthy food on the table, and trusting everything you hear on ads or read on labels is not such a smart thing to do. For a healthy meal, we usually try and look for foods that are “all natural”, “organic” and “free range”, but we are not always aware of how misleading that can be. We are not simply talking about mass production of animals that are designed for slaughter, but we are talking about animals that are denied of their natural habitat, their natural behavior, and are tortured and mistreated only to get to your nearest store fast enough. In all of the human history, there has been a delicate bond between a hunter and its prey, which gave dignity even to the animal that would end up as someone’s meal.

from Dmitry Joukov,
Art Director of  “Buy Me a Pie!” and 5EVEN, Head of Bodybeat

Not long ago I’ve published a story about the creation of icon for “Buy Me a Pie!” in iOS 7 style and the results of our attempts.

A Well Laid Out Kitchen 28.08.2013

fA Well Laid Out Kitchen


I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I really enjoy cooking, baking and trying new recipes. When I look at houses for sale (because sometimes I just like to do that, don’t judge) the kitchen is always a focal point for me. The most amazing house can take a quick downturn if the kitchen is outdated, too small, or poorly laid out.

You can easily paint cabinets, replace counters and add a nice tile backsplash. But if your kitchen isn’t laid out well it isn’t going to feel right. The usability is greatly diminished and it makes working in there very difficult. You can even grow to dislike being in the kitchen at all if it is hard to work in.
