The Survival Kit

No more deadline anxiousness, presentation panic, or worrying about an electricity cut in the office. Canadian creative studio Phoenix has come up with a simple way to make your office hours easier: The Survival Kit. Available in three packages, The Overtime: inside you´ll find everything you need to overcome the task at hand, from a stress ball, "do not disturb” badges, peanut butter energy bars, a guide of tricks to keep you calm… The Presentation: with everything you need to look stylish and professional in front of your client, it contains bow ties, a laser pointer, deodorant, a book about "the art of convincing”… and The Power Outage: with everything you need to pass the time, to keep warm and out of the dark, contains stuff like a pair of wool socks to keep you warm, candles, a card deck, and an harmonica to add some life in the office whilst you wait for the power to come back.
