Hi Guys, I've got a simple sticker variation for you all today which I have called the Campbell's Soup Cube.

The puzzle is based on the Skewb and inspired by the Campbell's Soup Can, which many of you will probably know through the work of Andy Warhol. I made the puzzle during a free hour at College; wanting to make a simple artistic piece that I could include in my coursework.

I made all of the stickers myself by hand; marking templates on the back of adhesive vinyl and then cutting them out using a steel rule and craft knife. I decided to take a minimalistic approach with regards to the design; overlooking the lettering of the can and instead using rectangular boxes of appropriate colour. Although this slightly reduces clarity in ways obvious, had I cut the lettering I feel it would have lessened the overall quality of the puzzle significantly as I do not believe I would have been able to work well on such a small scale.

If I were to include the lettering in the design, the stickers would have to be designed on a computer, this way the lettering could be printed directly onto the sticker material with full precision and the best results attained. *hint hint Oliver ;)*

Thanks for looking.
Ryan :)
