This is freaky and I like it a lot

Fresh sounds from south africa: Die Antwoord is about to release their second album very soon. These guys are really something else, last year I visited a live gig in Hamburg – it was definitely the most extreme concert I've every had the pleasure to attend.

Turbans are transformed into fashionable headwear in this new collection created by Kazakh/German fashion designer (and my sister) Anna Wegelin. Dames who dare to cover their heads in style and color can acquire any of the five designs from her online shop. All turbans are handmade from quality Jersey and available in three sizes.

I assisted Anna on the photography for the lookbook, together with Minna Lund (Make Up) and the great models Anna F. and Anne B. from Modelwerk.

Disruptive Thinker Transport

If you work for Crispin you'll get to ride the DDT in the morning. That's the Disruptive Thinking Transport bus that picks up employees, drives them to work (and back) while preparing them mentally for the day ahead. The ride from our stop takes a while but it's time well spent by talking to people from different departments while cruising through Boulder. You can't see it in the photo but it gets quite full and lively.

First day at CP+B

Today, after fighting our way through a bunch of information and paperwork we've settled into a nice corner of 'the spine' (the creative department) to begin our new job.

New year. New job. New country. New life.

Tomorrow my creative partner Robbin and I will begin a new job at Cripsin Porter + Bogusky in their Boulder, Colorado office. We've been talking with them about a possible job for over a year now and have been visiting them for a round of interviews during summer. After some visa issues in the beginning of the year we finally signed a contract for a full time position as a creative team back in August. It took us and the agency a few months to get all paperwork in order to the H1B visa and the approval process. Now we're officially two foreign workers in a specialty occupation for three years in the United States of America. We already moved here in advance and are getting used to the chilly mountain climate before starting our new jobs tomorrow. The adventure continues, it's going to be a wicked year with big expectations and full of work. Bring on 2012. In America. At CP+B. With a great partner.
