The American Bourbon brand dates back to the late 1800’s, but hasn’t been available in America for over 20 Years. Raison Pure was hired to bring back I.W. Harper, so we redesigned a classic decanter, inspired by it’s 12 Year Bourbon brother.
In the 1960’s the brand was advertised for its global presence, being the only bourbon in 110 countries and prized among nations for its reputation. These vintage ads are all over the internet, and are some of the last memories from the old brand. I re-shot the adds with the new bottle.

I was about to have a meeting, and the guy I was meeting with had lost his notebook. I asked him what it looked like, and he said it had a marbled pattern. As soon as he found it I realized why composition books look like my kitchen counter.
We used to write on stone, then wrote on paper, then made paper look like stone, so making stone look like paper should close the loop.

Although the word home is hard to define, most would agree that the main element that forms it, is the feeling of comfort. What's better than taking your shoes off, and laying back to sip a glass of warm milk, while reading your favorite magazine in your most comfortable chair?
Designed to evoke the feeling of home, Stimmung creates a comfortable and intimate environment. A place to relax, where you don’t have to stand up to place your drink, and won't need to move to fix the lights, because by simply swiping your finger along the lamp's stem, the light is dimmed.
A contemporary take on the Spanish Botijo. Although rarely used today, the Botijo was once a domestic tool used to store and cool water in the arid Mediterranean. As water evaporates through the porous clay, a layer of condensing water sets on the exterior surface, gradually cooling the inside.
The traditional Botijo has a 5 lt capacity, and features two sprouts; a large one for filling called boca, and a smaller one for drinking called piton. The renewed version holds 1 lt. of water, and reveals a more ergonomic design, pushing its presence beyond the domestic realm.
While shopping at Michales Arts and Crafts store I overheard an old couple talking about birdhouses. The husband asked his wife if she throught a woodpecker could fit into any of them.
She replied "Honey, if your woodpecker fits in mine then they'll have no problem getting in there." We all laughed, I bought the same house, and managed to squeeze a jumbo sized dildo though the hole.
You: "What is it?"
Me: "It's a corkscrew!"
It's funny to see people walk around with the latest camera gear; the super-duper zoom, the integrated self-cleaning sensor unit, and the whatever else they came out with yesterday; and realizing they have absolutely no clue how to use them.
So let's forget about the lens, the aperture, and the mere ability to focus. The Pinhole 101 is as simple as can be. Light from a scene passes through a fine hole and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. It uses 35 mm film and features a flash light for taking pictures in the dark.

Women don't usually go around telling people they have their period, so why do they carry tampons flying around inside their purses for everyone to see as they reach for their wallet.
To put an end to this matter, this small, cute, pink, discrete, container organizes tampons in a visually relaxing, floral arrangement; which promises to keep onlookers from knowing what's inside.
Inspired by the movement of a brodie knob, a.k.a suicide wheel; a knob that swivels and attaches to the steering wheel of an automobile, typically a truck. Other than looking cool, they've allowed truckers to simultaneously steer and sip a Coke for the past century.
With a typical winged corkscrew you stress almost every muscle in your arm, from your trapecious to your palmaris longus, fancy for "almost your entire arm”. By implementing this movement into the corkscrew, opening a bottle can be done by simply rotating your shoulder.
