The Drinkable Book

Concept design for Water is Life

Chemist: Dr Theresa Dankovich
Biochemical Engineer: Corinne Clinch

Chief Creative Officer: Matt Eastwood
Executive Creative Director: Menno Kluin
Group Creative Director: Andrew McKechnie
Head of Design: Juan Carlos Pagan
Associate Creative Director: Sam Shepherd
Associate Creative Director: Frank Cartagena
Senior Designer: Brian Gartside
Designer: Aaron Stephenson

The Drinkable Book is a life saving tool that filters water and teaches proper sanitation & hygiene to those in the developing world. 

Each book is printed on technologically advanced filter paper, capable of killing deadly waterborne diseases. And each page is coated with silver nanoparticles, whose ions actively kill diseases like cholera, typhoid and E. coli. 

Once water is passed through the filter, bacteria count is reduced by over 99.99%, making the filtered water comparable to tap water in the United States of America.

The paper costs only pennies to produce, making it by far the cheapest option on the market. Each filter is capable of giving someone up to 30 days worth of clean water. And each book is capable of providing someone with clean water for up to 4 years.

Plastic shopping bags have become a fixture of modern life, but despite their convenience, their impact on the environment is tough to ignore. 

In his Plastic Bag Landscapes series, photographer Vilde Rolfsen draws attention to the issue by using colored lights to transform the bags into abstract images. See the rest below!

"I was a single parent. At first, when my daughter was this age, I just had her on the weekends. I’d show up to pick her up and she’d have a knot on her forehead from banging her head on the wall. She was always so happy to see me when I showed up. She wasn’t getting any attention. Mom was a mess. She had mental health issues, popping pills — one to bring her up, one to come down. I finally sued for full custody and got my daughter when she was nine months old from, excuse me, from that bitch. There, I said it. But my daughter was simply a joy to raise. Hopefully this one is just as easy. This is my first grand baby!"

Some more advice that I have no right to give.  I’m serious about the Stephen Silver advice though- he’s the man.

Khanandkittens in ‘19 Very Important Photos of Benedict Cumberbatch With Kittens’ on BuzzFeed! (I could only put 10 out of the 14, but you know which other ones are mine!) I think I am going to start out every resume from here into eternity with the words “[my name], who has been referred to as a ‘photoshopping genius’ by BuzzFeed, would very much like to answer phones for your company.”
