Pimp your porta-potty

We’ve all experienced the misery of camping or festival toilets. The smell, the mud, the lack of toilet paper…horrible. Luckily for the people of Argentina, the organisers of ‘Personal Fest’ music festival have taken a stand – transforming this neglected area into a significantly more enjoyable experience.

Have a break, don’t have WiFi

No, they haven’t got the copy wrong. This week in Amsterdam, Kit Kat are offering free No Wifi Zones in Amsterdam – echoing their ‘Have a break…’ campaign message.

Give better

TOMS have always been great at giving – donating one pair of their shoes to a person in need for every pair purchased. Now, they’ve launched their first GIVE Shop – an experiential event held at The Old Truuman Brewery, where you’re taken on a journey of giving. This involves six major activities, including a craft space for making Christmas cards, a book exchange and ‘Give SMILES’ – a place to relive and cherish happy memories.

‘I still love NY’

Sebastian Errazuriz’s studio was paralysed after the hurricane. Unable to work and tired of watching the horrible disaster unfold on the news, Errazuriz decided to design something to help raise much-needed relief funds. This idea occurred to him after seeing the water line marked on the walls of the flooded galleries in New York’s Chelsea art district. (Nice one, Jamie C)

Beer in the woods

Considering Brick Lane’s reputation as a go-to food and drink destination, what better place to open an unusual pop-up bar?

Freshly bottled

Spotted in a New Jersey supermarket, POM pomegranate juice marketing themselves alongside the fruit! (Cheers, Benbo)


When IKEA moved its store location in Bergen, Norway, they decided to ask for volunteers to help with the opening­ – a clever way of engaging with the local community. Volunteers could sign up on a website to do ‘favours’, such as making a speech during the opening, assisting the mayor at the ceremony, planting the first tree outside the entrance and hosting the customer radio. Check out the campaign video here: http://vimeo.com/50387281
