A quickie mod on the eBoy / Kidrobot peecol design of the sunburnt german asphalt layer Bernd. This one is going on top of our office espresso machine. Extra Scharf, Knoblauch (extra hot, garlic sause) was our standard line at four o’clock in the morning in the various Berlin Kebab outlets. Superknüller is a german word meaning something like ”super offer” and which sounds slightly naughty in norwegian. Kaffeemaschine is selfexplanatory.

This deck is our back-and-forth to the shop deck. It is available in our webshop. It features an RGB color chart since Boardpusher who make our skatedecks insists on using RGB as their preferred color system. We made this deck to see just how the different colors will look on the finished deck and it is usefull for anyone who want to make decks with Boardpusher.

This paper model of a 20ft ISO container is a by-product from the Habitat proposal. We have made some small improvements on the model and made a 40ft container model as well. Both models are available for download.
Print out 33000 sheets and make a scale model of the Rotterdam transit harbour as a school project, or maybe it could pass for an art installation?
Use thick printer paper for best result, a scalpel or sharp scissors and your favourite paperglue.

Our logo has officially changed! The old one was based on two figures we made for our first webpage back in 1999 - www.boredturtle.com. We took the exact proportions of the bodies from these two figures and made the TordalType font for our logo. In a freak accident the resulting font was almost identical to the font and logo designed by our friend Ariane Spanier for Torpedo bookstore in Oslo, hence the need for a change...
Our new logo comes from the work with the PAPP logo. The PAPP ExtraBlack font is a fixedwidth font. The designer toy PAPP has a perfect cube shape and we wanted the font to reflect the complete squarishness of it all. Only the most important letters and symbols are included in this font.
