pictogram-movie-posters

Putting standard movie release posters on your wall can be a slippery slope.  One or two and you’re okay but more than that and you start looking like you take your design tips from the local AMC movie theater and are one worn-out Time Crisis game away from completing the look.  For some reason it makes us think of being a pimply faced teenager and not a grown man who happens to enjoy quality films.  We’re not sure when this whole redesigning classic posters as minimalist images trend began but our previously bare walls are glad that it did.  In this series of Pictogram Movie Posters, Viktor Hertz, reimagines not just classic movies but current favorites as clean and simple depictions.  Go timeless with Psycho or a bit more current with Thank You For Smoking or Inception.  Choose from three different sizes and, unlike run-of-the-mill movie prints, feel free to go buck wild with these.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
