Rob Ryan + Victorinox

Victorinox, the company behind the famous Swiss Army Knife, recently teamed up with UK artist Rob Ryan for a campaign to promote the launch of their new pocket-sized model, the Tomo…

It’s the first time that Victorinox has reinterpreted the classic Swiss design and the new Tomo is the work of Kazuma Yamaguchi of Tokyo studio, Abitax. ‘Tomo’ means ‘companion’ or ‘friend’ in Japanese. The studio also conceived the Tomo packaging, which uses recycled pulp to enclose the fold-up knife (see here on the Abitax site).

More of Rob Ryan’s work is at and his A1 artwork created for Modern Art Cutting will be on display in Victorinox’s London flagship store on New Bond Street.  The new Tomo is available at £17.99.

Steve Jobs

‘Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other people’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.  They somehow already know what you truly want to become.  Everything else is secondary.’ Steve Jobs

13 Wives

13 Wives is a series of posters designed for an opening party for a cocktail bar by Foreign Policy Design, a company based in Singapore.

“13Wives is the story of 13 ladies and their man behind the bar. This tucked-away specialist little cocktail bar mixes up one of a kind potent concoctions inspired by each of the femme fatale protagonist. These cocktails can be selected from The Little Black Book presented by the mixologist – the man behind the bar. This is his secret rolodex tucked in his back pocket, complete with first dates stories, jot notes of the ladies and mentions of their favorite cocktails. “

I think they would look fab as book covers!
