    Happy Holidays from Yellowtrace & Slim Aarons!

    20th December

    Dearest Yellowtracers, Can you believe we’ve almost reached the end of another amazing year together? What more could I possibly say that I haven’t already? You know I totally love you guys, right? By now it should be bleeding obvious.

    Design Free Thursday // Middle Class Problems.

    10th October

    Twitter account @middleclassprob is a hilarious feed that highlights “real problems. But not real actual problems, just middle class ones.” BuzzFeed recently paired some of the tweets with stock images of heartbroken people. I’ve been laughing about it for days. Us humans can be so friggin’ stupid and shallow at times…



    So Hot Right Now // Mobile Buildings.

    4th October

    It’s certainly no news the (Western) world has been moving towards a more mobile existence for quite some time. Advancement of technology in combination with our continued pursuit of alternative lifestyle has brought about many developments towards innovative, or should I say – less conventional ways of working, living and holidaying.

Whilst this is far from being a new trend, it’s definitely interesting to see how varied these buildings are in their usage and the way in which they are configured. From true mobile dwellings such as the repurposed vehicles and shipping containers, to more conventional shelters designed to fit on the back of a bicycle or a truck, these interesting examples of mobile buildings from around the globe are a real-life comment about the mobile-nature of the world we live in…
