This week Cloud 9 has journeyed to an occasionally overlooked corner of Oz, Adelaide. And thank god we did because we have a new design crush, hello Parallex, I think you might be ‘the one’! As a designer myself it is creative ideas that drive me so when I stumbled across the work of Parallax I knew I’d unearthed a gem. Beautifully executed, intelligent yet relevant ideas based design.

Based right here in Auckland, Cloud 9 is floating closer to home this week, in fact pretty much straight past my window as the agency in question is right up my street in more ways than one. One Design are an elusive bunch, gliding quietly under the radar.

This week on Cloud9 we’re in Sydney but with a little outside influence.

Haaaaappy New Year folks! As the feasting and festivities fade into the distance and you ease back to reality, allow us to raise your spirits back to fever pitch. A new year calls for a new feature and as 2012 is apparently the year of the cloud it only seemed appropriate we invited you onto Cloud 9. But there is some method to our tenuous madness; late 2011 saw Designers Journal meet Long White Cloud. Turns […]
