Wallpaper* cuts with Victorinox

If I think of a Swiss Army Knife a remember my time at the army (an obligation in Switzerland).. not good this is. But hey, it is at the same time a solid Swiss product and can be very practical if you think of MacGyver.

Sevva Bar & Restaurant, Hong Kong

This breathtaking view is not a rendering but a bar in Hong Kong. The terrace belongs to the sevva bar on the 25th-floor penthouse of the Prince’s Building. Privileged with an amazing view over Hong Kong’s harbor one can enjoy drinks, live music and tapas. Prices ranges from $25-$100 (meal cost per person) according to the Trip Adviser website.

Business Cards

The fact that I am currently applying for a job prompts for the first blog entry: Business Cards. I have thought that it would be a good idea to create a business card, although I think that it is kind of odd to have a business card without a company on it… However, “dailypoetics” has an awesome collection of very creative business cards. Here are some examples:
