Philip Cronerud is an art director, and publisher from Stockholm, Sweden, who works within technology, art and typography. Philip used to work for agencies like Wieden+Kennedy, Printed Pages / It’s Nice That and later his own type-foundry MEDIUMEXTRABOLD®. The lure of a job offer in the Bay Area convinced him to move and embrace a Californian lifestyle.
Ever wondered what "patatje oorlog" (War Fries) would taste like if it were ice cream? Me neither, but ice cream store Ludo & Hedo did and offered an answer to this question anyway, and it tasted much better than I could ever have imagined. The conceptual founder, Ola Lanko, composes new combinations from seasonal ingredients every so many weeks.
Each flavour has a dreamy, poetic name and compose a wide variety together, that ranges from plain vanilla (Sweet Survivor) to gorgonzola with pear and walnut (Blue Marble), or even burned milk (In Love).
A must-try for Dare Devils and Sicilian Rebels.
Unfortunately it’s not in Amsterdam but De Pont, museum of contemporary art is worth the 1,5 hour trip with the train. The building itself is beautiful, it’s a former wool mill but also there collection is worth seeing!
At the end of tramline 7 and 14 there is a huge bridge on concrete pillars. These pillars are one of the few places in Amsterdam where it’s legal to spray graffiti. My work is very much influenced by graffiti, so I love to come here and see what’s going on. It’s a very dynamic place, so one day it can be awful and the next day amazing but it’s never boring.
