Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg, elevating the status of animated gifs

Stumbled upon the work of Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg, who often toil for hours to edit such enigmatic images that evoke Edward Hopper, timelessness and yet never losing the quality of a still. To think that all we thought of gifs were unfunny 2D cartoons. This is what we call toil and dedication.

Olympia Le-Tan Clutches vs Kate Spade Book Clutches

The alternative to limited Kate Spade book clutches, here comes Olympia Le-Tan. Humps did some research and found out that these coveted bags sell for a whopping S$1850! But for the workmanship, ingenuity and attention to details, this is well worth the investment. By comparison, Kate Spade is a steal. In case you need the address, the nearest fly zone you can catch it is in Hongkong, the i.t. group of stores do stock some.

The Aalto Vase - A Timeless Finnish Icon

Humptydump received this beautifully designed object as a wedding gift some years back and have never looked back. While cleaning this prized possession one day, it suddenly struck us how this vase has always been so unobtrusive and humble in its beauty. Inspired by the form of a dress, it has ironically never earned Alvar Aalto, its Finnish designer, any monetary gains, despite its almost iconic status in present day.
