Because he and his colleagues all got such a kick out of it when he showed it to them, he started drawing new balloon characters in the following weeks. As he realized how contagious the happiness about the balloons was and that other designers could have as much fun designing them, Max-o-matic founded the project 'Latex for Fun'. He invited designers from all over the world to follow his example and make characters using balloons or other latex objects such as gloves or condoms. The book 'Latex for Fun' presents highlights from this wonderfully wacky project in which 135 designers from over 20 countries participated; 88 of these designers are represented in the publication.Their work reflects various styles, personalities and cultures, but all of it shows how vibrantly creative the collaboration of a spontaneously generated global design network can be.
