Stefan Sagmeister om vikten av ledighet

Stefan Sagmeisters TED-föreläsning “The power of time-off” är riktigt intressant. För att hämta inspiration och behålla glöden för sitt yrke som designer stänger han sin byrå var sjunde år och tar ett sabbatsår (eller allokerar ut fem år av sin pension i förtid). Det kräver ju att man klarar det rent ekonomiskt – han [...]

Apple: Incredibly super-awesomely nice

Steve Jobs och hans kollegor brukar inte ha svårigheter att hitta superlativ och positiva uttryck när de beskriver sina produkter, men om du någonsin tvivlat på att din Appleprodukt är något annat än nice, nice, nice, awesome, amazingly nice, super easy, amazing och incredibly awesome så ta en titt på det här sammandraget någon klippt [...]

Lilla Kylie säljer in Windows 7

Microsoft firar det förhållandevis varma mottagande Windows 7 har fått hittills. I reklamfilmen ovan visar lilla Kylie hur lätt hon sätter ihop en slideshow med alla “happy words” hon hittat på nätet (“Snappy and repunken..slee…”). Lågt grepp att låta världens sötaste unge sköta införsäljningen? Mjo, kanske, men sött ändå – och hon har ju ändå [...]

How To Design A Company Logo?

How to design a company logo; 1) Start Illustrator 2) Paste in a suitable logo and talk about it for a while 3) Done (…and profit!)
Granted there’s not many tutorial videos on graphic design I’d consider funny, this goes beyond that. It’s dumb to the point of.. well. I don’t know. Who is this [...]

New Internet Explorer 8 Ad w/ Dean Cain

Here’s Microsoft’s new ad for Internet Explorer 8 featuring Dean Cain (you know, Superman from the Lois and Clark TV series back in the 90’s) performing a fumbling and obviously intentionally awkward sales pitch for the browser’s sharing abilities. Could you be suffering from S.H.Y.N.E.S.S too? As in Sharing Heavily Yet Not Enough Sharing Still? [...]

A Short Documentary on Comic Sans

Here’s a short and enjoyable documentary on Comic Sans and its impact on the world. It’s made by Sam and Anita, two students studying television in Boston – don’t know more about them than that.
I really like the opening quote:
“If you love it, you don’t know much about typography, but if you hate it, you [...]

Big Lazy Robot: “Exploit Yourself” (Nike)

This is Exploit Yourself, a high-paced, fictional ad for Nike by Big Lazy Robot VFX (who’s done some Transformers work for Paramount among other things). Free running / le parkour á la Mirror’s Edge robotic style. Yeah, the robot is panting every now and then, but wouldn’t you after that run?

Philips “Carousel” Ad

This is Carousel, the Cannes Lions Grand Prix winner. It’s basically one, long shot of a frozen moment of clowns robbing a hospital. And by long I mean over two minutes of clowns vs cops, explosions, shattered glass and debris frozen in time.
If you wonder what it’s advertisement for it’s Philips 21:9 cinema TV, not [...]

“It Costs $30,000 To Fill An iPod”

I just thought of how Microsoft has managed to generate good buzz lately, releasing Windows 7 RC 1 free for everyone (for a year) and so on, but then someone at marketing just had to release something like the video above.
The ad features Wes, a “certified financial planner”, telling you how stupid the huge [...]
