Retro Male/Female Bathroom Sign

Il_570xN_244681675 
Australian duo Mooza Designs seem to mainly create signs using numbers and letterings, but the item that seems a little different to me is this Retro Male/Female Bathroom Sign.

Admittedly, most of us don’t feel the need to label our loos, but this is quite cute in a kitsch kind of way. The sign is made from acrylic base topped with retro wallpaper, in a wide choice of colours and patterns – most with a 1970s look to them.

The signs cost about £25 (plus postage) and are available from the Mooza Etsy store.

Fairground mugs from Snowden Flood

Stop mug
Snowden Flood has been featured quite a few times on this site before: for her work featuring famous London landmarks and her take on design classics. A slightly different type of style is evident in her new range but still one that's pleasingly retro – as demonstrated with these fairground mugs.

The mugs feature illustrations influenced by traditional British folk art – indeed as the name suggests they are influenced by old-fashioned funfair signage. Each mug is decorated in a different colour with a different fairground ride style slogan.

The bone china mugs also draw on another British tradition in their manufacture as they are made in Stoke-On-Trent. 

You can buy the mugs individually for £18.50 or as a set of four for £70.
