Do you do crafts? Well, recently I discovered this quite unique site I thought may interest you—Whatimade.com. Not only does it have a stunning, quirky design, the whole site is pure eye candy and is a Webby Award winner.
Scott Bedford, the creative designer who runs the site has showcased many articles that show you how to use simple crafts. He shows you how to make robots, toast towers and even a ‘snail soup’ hidden compartment!

After school I attended Art College and then pursued a career within the advertising and design industry. I am currently the Creative Director of a digital agency in London, and spend my days making engaging online experiences for some of the world’s biggest brands. [read more]
