Mosquito Coils & Cicadas

Mosquito Coils & Cicadas

Here now, for you overheated Australians, are a couple of seasonally relevant designs: The little guy & Mosquito Coil.

The little guy

Created in between jobs and deadline slaving, this design is the product of Melbourne-based Studio Pip and Co. (founded by CustOMER Andrew Ashton in 2003): "designers to the stars, the down-trodden, the well-heeled and far-flung."

Mosquito Coil

Every cloud (in this case pestilence) has a silver lining.

Take for instance mosquito coils. We used to sell lots of them in our Sydney General Store. We sold them to people who needed to repel mosquitos; and also to people who just liked to have them around.

Most are made in China and carry brand names like: White Crane, Pug Cat, Zebra Brand or Cock Brand.

This (verbatim) from the bottom of a Pug Cat box:

This article is made of choisest materials from all kinds of wood powder and spices. The possess fragrant smell and the strong effect of repelling mosquitos, with sanitary effects, and make air be pure and fresh. Harmless to human bodies and livestocks. Each coil burns for 8 hours. Superior quality.
