Rear Overtures

Rear Overtures

There is something inspiring about this Rearview Mirror Notebook by AFTERAIN. Can’t quite put my finger on it; guess it has to do with the fact that I’ve completely stopped using pen and paper and at some point in life I was obsessed with such kinda classy stationery. Going back to the basics is always a good idea, so let’s get some mirror action going here!

Noteworthy Bits

At some point we all need to go back to the basics; in my case it will be writing in a notebook – the paper kind. And when I do that, I need gear that is inspiring. For some odd reason, I’m very picky about book I use and my pen. We’ll leave the pen story for another day, but for now let’s ‘focus’ (no pun intended) on the Camera Notebook – DSLR by AFTERAIN. Available at the CKIE Store, this book features an inspiring DSLR Camera, that helps you capture memories … literally!

The Pocket Watch Redefined

The Pocket Watch Redefined

The story goes that in the 18th and early 19th century, men typically wore pocket watches and wristwatches were meant for women. However, during combat and wartimes, it was very inconvenient to keep track of time via the pocket watch. Necessity gave birth to the legendary design of wrist strap (Also known then as “Wristlet”) that was first used to house pocket watches onto the wrists for the ease of checking time during Boer War era.

Sticko Your iPhone

Sticko Your iPhone

Every once in a while there comes a situation where you need to mount your phone or tablet, to a surface. Sticko is the answer for such situations. Why? It’s light, portable, sticks to any surface (curved surfaces like a mug), madder from heatproof and U.V protected materials. If these reasons are not enough then sleek and stylish nails it.

The T-Block Effect

The T-Block Effect

Watches are to men as diamonds are to women; both count as the number one fashion accessory and are timeless. Innovation is of essence and creative ways of telling time is a novelty factor. Beyond doubt, complications and mechanical watches are the epitome of technicalities, however due credit has to be given to path-breaking manufactures like the T-Block Watch. Designed to dress the wrist, the most challenging part is to resist the linear display of time!

A Pinch of Life

Salt – the one ingredient that can make or break your signature dish! Understandably, this is why the Pinch was the first product ever launched via Kickstarter. It is the drama and experience of adding ‘a pinch of salt’ to the dish that makes it exciting. In its conceptual stage, we loved and supported the Pinch; now when it’s the real deal…we want to share its story with you.

Creative Calculation With Sharpened Pencils

Can creative output really be measured? Yes, the pencil shavings collected in the Sharpner Jar tell the story of your efforts, even if there’s nothing final to show for the time spent. This measurable “creative data” proves to colleagues, employers, friends, family, and—most importantly—yourself that work was accomplished, useful or not.
