Our favourite April Fools


sonyQ_april_foolsSo, April fools again – in the last few years the big brands have really caught on to how grab your attention with their April fools gags. Much more entertaining than your Dad sticking a tail to you to walk to school in or putting Tabasco on your toothbrush! Oh how we laughed!

This year was better than ever with a long list of sustainable trees, drone mail and the end of YouTube – here’s a list of our faves.

The Credible In-Guide to Shoreditch & Hoxton


Here at Firedog, we like to keep you up to date with what’s happening around Shoreditch & Hoxton. It’s been our home for over 10 years now and we felt it was about time we shared our local knowledge.

A trip east is like no other in London. Every corner of the city has its own vibe, and the north east is known for being at the forefront of creative thinking. Trends are known to start here, and the locals are a collective of offbeat individuals whose street style cause ripples across the whole of greater London. From numerous recording studios, design agencies and art galleries, people flock to this hub of inspiration looking for new ideas and to stretch their imaginations.

So, seeing as we loved it enough to stick around for this long, we felt it was about time we offered up our favourite spots so as our friends could experience the wonders of east London for themselves. We wanted to present this in a way that did this area justice, reflecting both the epic design ability contained within the Shoreditch triangle, but also the fun seeking attitude of its residents.

Blinkin’ hell!


1. Stare at the red dot on the image below for 15 seconds
2. Glance over to a blank surface (a nice white wall ideally)
3. Blink like your life depends upon it.

FYI: I stumbled across this excellent optical illusion over on the Quipsologies blog.

Nice little Aardman number – Gulp!


We rather like the clever use of the mobile medium in this viral clip.

But will anything save the fate of Nokia?

Greenpeace on fighting the dark side


I was taking a walk down Old Street last week and was intrigued to see an experiential installation themed around Star Wars.

I immediately assumed it was designed to support the ongoing Volkswagen campaign, but on second glance the inverted VW logo caught my eye.
