We at Design You Trust place a high value on creativity. So we’re especially delighted when we learn about people who can create something beautiful out of something completely ordinary. Ashley Yeates, who came up with the following idea, is definitely one of these people. It’s people like him who add a little light to our day. Continue reading »
All the changes that are constantly taking place around us are the natural result of the passage of time. But that doesn’t mean we can’t feel nostalgic for what once was — for a time when we lived differently, when our ideas were much simpler and our perspective much more straightforward. And we wouldn’t have had it any other way.

For Halloween this year, makeup artist Shonagh Scott reimagined your favorite Disney princesses as victims of tragic events that were inspired by the original story lines. If that sounds creepy, that’s because it is, but Halloween is creepy too, so it all kind of makes sense. Got to give it to her though: Her princess transformations are pretty spot-on and the gory makeup is disturbingly believable too. Continue reading »
In the photography world, we’re pretty familiar with 52-week projects, although some of us have yet to ever start or complete one. Beamused Magazine wanted to encourage all artists to take up a 52-week challenge called an “endless book.” The premise is that artists create one page of their “book” per week, constructing them in such a way that one page leads to another for a seamless mega-panorama.
Going nowhere in a hurry, this friendly Javan Tree frog can be seen casually hopping aboard the slow-paced snail who like a lonely highway trucker is only too happy to have the company. These cute critters chew the fat until froggy reaches his destination and alights at the top of the branch. Creative Designer and amateur photographer Kurit Afsheen (34) was able to capture this special sequence while out in his back garden in Ciledug, Indonesia. (Photo by Kurit Afsheen/Media Drum World)
A year ago swiss social media phenomenon @Zukkihund had posted an infographic which stated that the fun factor of visiting IKEA drops dramatically when you turn 9 and you are no longer allowed to enter the ballpit in the Småland play area for children. When @Zukkihund publicly asked if IKEA could throw a ball pit party for grownups, the feedback was – wonder why – overwhelming. And IKEA was in. Continue reading »
These artworks by Canadian illustrator Terry Fan, take some of the most popular characters from the original trilogy of Star Wars movies and give them a steampunk twist.
Some of the characters’ titles are translated to their real-world equivalents, while others receive new positions that still make sense. The protocol droid C-3PO becomes a baron, fitting for his dapper demeanor. Meanwhile the 900-year-old Jedi Master Yoda becomes a “Sir”, the title used for knighthood. Lord Vader barely even needs a name change, since he’s already a Sith lord. Also featuring are Boba Fett as a general, Chewbacca as a chancellor, a Stormtrooper as a sergeant and R2D2 as a Duke.

Talk of the apocalypse never goes out of style and we’ve just found the ultimate survival fashion. French designer Marie-Elsa Batteux Flahault has created a jumpsuit with the ‘Prepper’—someone who is actively preparing for the end of the world—in mind. And it’s not suited for one sole “end of the world as we know it” scenario. The jacket is fully equipped to defend against all variety of survivalist situation and elemental attack, from starvation and dehydration to water-based natural disasters and extreme temperatures.

Hike the Haiku Stairs in Oahu, Hawaii — also known as “The Stairway to Heaven” — a steep trail with a wooden ladder spiked into the side of a cliff. Technically it’s not open for public use, but people still climb it, and rave about the views from the top.

City Never Sleeps is a tribute to the great metropolises that for ages have inspired not only artists, but also most importantly, ordinary people. The cities that are a continuous dazzle of lights and cacophony of noises, but still attract like a magnet. The cities where hearts of inhabitants beat the same rhythm and whichhistory is created by human passions, dramas and great romances. The cities that never sleep, because when some people say “goodnight”, the other say “good morning”. The cities where anything can happen and any dream can come true. Continue reading »
Until the early seventies, Amar Bharti was a senior shipping clerk in New Delhi. He had the comfortable trappings of the relatively well off Indian middle class. Married, with three children already grown, Amar Bharti made a decision. He handed in his notice at the office. He tied up all the loose ends of his life. He paid off the higher purchase agreements on his furniture and gave his car to his eldest son. Then he left his house. He left his wife and his children for ever. He walked away from everything he had spent his life building with nothing to his name but a bowl, two pieces of orange cloth and a metal trident.
Amar Bharti had decided to devote the rest of his life to Shiva. In time his beard grew long and his hair became matted into thick dreadlocks. Despite the harshness of his existence Amar Bharti felt that his spiritual quest was still weighed down by earthly comforts and pleasure. Three years after leaving his whole life behind, Amar Bharti made a second decision. He decided to raise his arm vertically in the air as if he was a small child begging to answer a call of nature. Once his arm was raised it was never to come down again. That was in 1973.
