Short Takes...

• KFC’s Colonel Sanders lost his moustache to mark the November 1 start of Movember, a month in which participants raise money for charity by shaving off and growing back their moustaches. But his new look only lasted one day: the Colonel’s moustache was completely grown back on November 2.

• Tired of renting space, graphic design studio thonik spent 12 years to design and construct its own building. Studio designers created bright, spacious offices on a relatively small site. But it was its choice of surface design brought the site and architecture together.


From an article in Metropolis magazine: “The high-contrast graphic pattern on its facade is just one of many references to its owners’ profession, and adeptly straddles the line between whimsy and sophistication. An homage to the quasi-psychedelic trilinear typeface that was designed for the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City, the graphic pattern is a combination of horizontals, verticals, and diagonals that balance out a multitude of floor-to-ceiling windows and an external staircase. ‘The graphic skin brings rhythm and balance to the architectural elements,’ explains [one of the studio’s founders Thomas] Widdershoven.
