They were called ‘ботинки на манной каше’, literally men’s ‘shoes on semolina’, because they used to call the thick crepe sole ‘semolina’.”


  • V&A: 11 tips for writing a killer proposal. Great read, really useful feedback from a client’s perspective. Also reminded me of how TED wrote about choosing the right agency — incidentally mentioned (and linked to) in one of the comments.
