Welcome to our latest instalment of Friday Favourites – some of our favourite creative stories from the past week. Let’s begin with a little photographic inspiration, starting with Noell Osvald’s stunning black and white work. It’s minimal, intriguing and has an almost tactile quality.

This week the annual Art On A Postcard secret auction went live, featuring customised postcards by the likes of Sir Peter Blake, Gilbert and George, Julian Opie and Ben Eine amongst many others. There are over 400 postcards up for auction, each designed by a world famous or up and coming artist (plus each postcard is unnamed so you only find out who designed it if you are the lucky bidder), and all proceeds of the auction will go towards The Hepatitis C Trust. Here are a few of our favourites this year:
The postcards will be on display at the Unit London gallery from 14th November, and you can see the full selection and place your bids here.

…to start thinking about Christmas? From Jade this week: When asked “What do you want for Christmas?” people often answer “Nothing”. For those who already have everything, Greenpeace in The Netherlands has launched the perfect gift called “niks”, which translates as “nothing”. It’s a pretty little box with nothing in it – a symbolic gift with proceeds going towards funding Greenpeace projects.
