Clean / Dirty
I totally adore these magnets by Keith P Rein. So simple, yet such a great idea. Everyone knows what it can be like with a dishwasher – are the dishes clean (and need to be unloaded, but haven’t because we are all too lazy), or is it a load that needs to be washed? Finally, the answer to these first-world questions can be answered without having to check the dishwasher!! Saving you a good 30 seconds, this simple magnet can let you know! (Okay, so it’s definitely not something we actually need, but I really like the concept – and they are cute). Rein makes a simple yet clever visual pun. I love to see humour and art working together, which is something Rein does in most of his work. Both magnets are aesthetically pleasing and well executed. I just found it a bit of a shame that the words (although small) are placed on the magnet itself. I see the need for them to be on the packaging, but the magnet itself could do without in my opinion. Nevertheless, I think it is a great idea and would make a splendid gift for someone. Cheap and cheerful as they say! You can purchase these for yourself or a friend here. It could even be the ideal Christmas present.
