Pantone 810

Yellowdog is all about giving back to charity and recently donated 10% of all profits from a huge commercial printing job to the Kwasa Centre in South Africa, and when we saw the chance to actually own our very own colour from the 16.7million that Dulux has identified....we jumped at it. Pantone 810 fills the dot in our logo with colour and it was so easy to purchase! All you have to do is go to the Own A Colour Website, choose your favourite colour and then pay via text message or card to go get your own!

TUNE OF THE DAY // Gregory Porter - 1960 What

Pretty damn blissful this song. A perfect fitting song to watch the sun go down in oh so sunny England.

Tuesday, September 27, 2011


Right, I haven't done a blog for ages....sorry. I've been printing, going on holiday and attempting to camp at Bestival. 

Whilst trying not to be too overly dog orientated I just couldn't let this one go without dedicating a blog to it. Over in America we know that they take their pets pretty seriously, spending over $41 billion a year on them! On the west coast of America last weekend those crazy yanks held a dog surfing competition in Surf City, Huntington Beach. Check out some of the photos I spotted on The Guardian website yesterday....

TUNE OF THE DAY // Solomun - Love Recycled 2

I am in love with this song so much. The beat, the piano effortlessly beautiful.
Less talk from me, more listening from you.

TUNE OF THE DAY // Jesse Boykins III - I can't stay

I had been keeping this gem under wraps for a while now, feasting upon the beauty of the lyrics and that amazing back beat. You cant help but try and dance to it. I felt it was time to let you in on a little secret of a song.

This has been produced by Gold Panda, if you know the works of him then check out the blog that was done way back when in November 2010, HERE.

Jesse kindly put his 6 track EP for free.

You can download it from this lovely link......HERE

Beauty if defined in these 6 tracks.

TUNE OF THE DAY // Al Stewart - Year of the cat

Sorry for the distinct lack of blogging and anything really. The team have been at bestival over the weekend and survived what I call a category 12 tornado. But in reality, it was just some winds.

I just thought I would share this song with you, the piano at the start is unmissable! Just send you into another dimension, and then the spinetingling vocals encapsulate the mind and the body.

MIX OF THE MONTH // Nextmen vs Bestival 2011

Whilst we have been rushing around to get 160 charity shirts printed we had many an hour to mull over and what tunes should grace our ears. We settled on the appropriateness of the Bestimix seeing as the three members of the dog family are all going to be in attendance. One as a monkey and the other as 2 red hot chilli peppers: Photos in due course. 

We sampled a whole range during our 12 hour printing marathon and felt this gave us the best productivity! 

Look out for the dog team at the Nextmen's show.

TUNE OF THE DAY // Joe Goddard (feat. Valentina) - Gabriel

This is a song I just cant get out of my head, and it seems to pop up everywhere I go. Be it on the radio, mixcloud or just being hummed in the background.

Joe Goddard is a man who has had a long and established career, being the hot in hotchip, 1 of the bears (there are 2.) But also now is establishing himself to be a prolific producer and a man of many talents reaping the benefits from having 3 acts associated to his name.

I look forward to hearing more from Mr Goddard, but for now I will leave you with a quote from the song.


That is all.

Right that's it, I can't hold it back any more....I love logos!, but more specifically, the evolution of logos. Yellowdog's fledgling career has seen it's logo be developed quite extensively, including total font and positioning changes but also subtle tweaks of colour. Having researched logo's extensively to see what does and doesn't work, we are definitely happy with our final choice.

Below I've added the development that some of the major global companies' logos have gone through over the years. If you want to find out more, take a look at this information packed site and you can see a whole host of huge companies that have changed logos and their reasons behind it.

*Sorry, sorry ahem excuse me, for the first time ever I have had to come back and edit a post. Before I was so amazed by the video I nonchalantly decided I wasn't 100% on the tune... but having had it on repeat for about a month now, I need to tell everyone this tune is wicked and definitely gets better with every listen!

Here is the original post for you to tut at...

Not 100% on the tune but the video is amazing! No idea where it was filmed but one thing is for sure, if I saw this being filmed I wouldn't pretend it wasn't happening and ignore it. It's the type of dancing you think you're capable of doing after 11 pints but in reality your a sloppy, dribbler of a specimen wriggling about with your mouth wide.
