Gift ideas for creatives

As christmas draws nearer we are all racking our brains for what we can get our friends or what we should request from our loved ones. We’ve put together a collection of items that are on our wish lists in The Loop HQ.

Some chalkboard paint or chalkboard tape

You can buy it from TMOD and the packaging is designed by your fellow Looper  Benedicte Galichet.

An instax camera or some film

Documentation is a large part of any creative project and using an instax doesn’t require the hassle of making a trip to the printer.
