Design Classics: Gitanes packet

After one of my regular ‘commenters’, Cayman Thorn remarked on my inclusion of Zippo lighters, which brought to mind, my mate Barry (again) who said that from a design standpoint, a packet of Gitanes was the perfect smoker’s kit!! This was a late night attempt to capture the elegance of the packet- hmm, must take more water with it. . .


Classic design-the kitchen knife

Whilst looking at this and drawing it, I was thinking about other classics: the Swiss army knife, the Zippo lighter, and maybe  other examples which I had to hand….. not realising that the very Moleskine I was using is a design classic in itself . . . .


Classic design . . . the Vespa

It just says ‘Italy’, doesn’t it?
