Before you do, it's time for the Weekly Roundup where we curated our some of the interesting things that happened on the Web either it is news, a new tool to try, a cool video and some sites inspiration that caught on attention. We'll also include some Abduzeedo articles from the past week just in case that you've missed them. Time to sit back, see what you've missed and gear up for the next one.

We would like to start this review to thank the kind folks from Otterbox for letting us try and play with their latest and the greatest line of products uniVERSE Case System for the iPhone. Available (for now) from your iPhone 7/7Plus and 6S/6SPlus, you’ll be welcomed with an iPhone case that is the true reflection of the core and durability of Otterbox and along with all those swappable modules (accessories) that will just enhanced your experience with the case. I just came back from a trip from Iceland and I took all this gear with me in the wilderness where I got to really experience and make a proper review instead of my own boring city backyard. Let’s start!
STARDECK is a custom deck of poker-sized playing cards, the design and illustrations were done by Lunar Saloon, and printed by The United States Playing Card Company. The project was launched on Kickstarter and is waiting for our support. The people behind Lunar Saloon are my good friend Alex Griendling and his wife Meg Griendling. As we could expect the illustrations are beyond stylish and in addition to that there is a beautiful Kickstarter-exclusive wooden etching where they worked with Neutral Ground to produce.
I happen to have an unhealthy obsession with candles that smell amazing so when we received a delivery from Keap Candles out of Brooklyn, NY my day was made. Upon opening the beautifully packaged discovery set of four tea light candles my olfactory senses were in heaven. Keap Candles smell amazing, are aesthetically awesome and you can also feel good about burning them because you're doing good too.
Uber refreshed their branding and visual identity in the beginning of this year and despite the controversy it was a in my opinion a solid work. I know some of the designers behind it and I have profound admiration for the work that they do, they are experts at their craft and probably some of the best in this field. The project that they shared on Bechance definitely illustrates that quite well. It's a text book project and if you want to create visual style guide, save the link because it's hard getting any better than that.
What I particularly like about LYNK & CO philosophy, approach and business model are the fact that is more than just a car. There’s a definitive mindset behind this brand to be wide open as an open source to creation and collaboration. Some of us might think that CO from LYNK & CO would mean company but it actually means Co:operation, Co:mmunity and Co:nnection. We gotta that play of words!
As you may have seen from our social channels, we have been covering the launch of the new car company called: LYNK & CO (via our Instagram) in Berlin, Germany. It has been an exciting ride as that is our first international unveiling for Abduzeedo. As expected, we are now releasing the first official images for what it would be called the LYNK & CO Model 01.
