When Facebook Becomes a Book

Interesting video about how if a facebook became a book. You know, cause most of our favourite facebook moments become forgotten in the virtual world.

When Facebook becomes a book from Siavosh Zabeti on Vimeo.

"Bouygues Telecom asked us to come up with an idea to launch their facebook platform.
They wanted us to create something that would go beyond using your profile picture in a funny way, or pranking your friends with a small joke.
We decided to look at the way we use facebook and found that even though we use the social networking site everyday, we forget our favorite moments we share online.

So we created an app that could change that, and keep your facebook, in a book."

Original idea: Siavosh Zabeti, Alexander Kalchev

Sanders & Sanders Ltd.

Sanders & Sanders Ltd. was established in 1873 by brothers William Sanders and Thomas Sanders in Rushden, Northamptonshire - an area now known as the heart of fine English shoe making.

The Sanders brother's vision was simple - offer outstanding footwear to discerning customers. To do so they employed five of the best local craftsmen, selected the finest English hides, the best local oak-bark tanned soles and began to design and make shoes & boots.
This vision has since been passed down from father to son (the company is currently in the fifth generation of family business), with the commitment to quality remaining unchanged in nearly 140 years of shoe making. Sanders & Sanders now employ over one hundred craftsman, using both traditional skill-sets and the best in modern production methods.

As well as supplying the UK, Sanders & Sanders export worldwide, and are particularly popular with Japanese shoe aficionados.

Sanders shoes are available online at Oi Polloi (europe)
