I spotted these awesome post-its over on swiss-miss!  I love the size of it and would place it on my desk just for its presence.

It was designed by Creative Director Kenjiro Sano (aka MR DESIGN), who boasts an impressive portfolio that includes clients such as Kirin, Shiseido and Nissan. But he also finds time to do some smaller scale work such as the Pig Mug (which I happen to own a set of 3)…

…and the Earth Garbage Bag, which recently (and by recently I mean today) went on sale at BEAMS, Tokyo and Collette, Paris.  It’s interesting that the Earth Garbage Bag attempts to paint an environmentally blighted picture of the planet by alluding to the notion that the planet it is filled with trash. Meanwhile, his post-its display a disregard for environmental issues such as deforestation and the waste and garbage crisis.

We bought a couple Pig Mugs a few years ago at Franc Franc… regret that we didn’t complete the set on the last trip… I guess that means we need to go back ;)

Also, thanks for peeking at my Flickr… I haven’t had the chance to post from my last trip- hopefully soon.
