IE9: The brand campaign I am loving to hate

I came across this video yesterday: It’s ironic to use a hipster-looking, obviously designer/Mac lover inspired stereotype that for some reason works on a PC in his dorm, (seriously, does he have to be sporting plaid, a beard, geek-chic glasses, AND high-laced shoes?) but irony aside, the ad is funny in its very relate-able premise. … Continue reading

Project Re:Brief and it’s potential to blow your mind.

Browsing the internet today, I came across Google’s Project Re:Brief, an endeavor started this year to take some the world’s most successful and iconic ad campaigns and re-contextualize them for digital technology as a commemoration of the 18th anniversary of the internet (they never fully explain what makes 18 yrs special enough to “commemorate” it, … Continue reading

Skinny mutants are SEXAH

Coming into work this morning, I was once again faced with the annoying problem of having absolutely no work to do. In cases like this, I enjoy digging into my arsenal of time-wasting websites with a particular favorite being psdiasters.com.

Trendsetter Critique: Banners

When does something become a design trend? It’s hard to say, for me it’s always been more of a gut feeling saying “Holy Effin’ God, this shit is everywhere!” Trends can be as specific as the overuse of a typeface (I’m looking at you Gotham!) to the use of a certain look, style, or element. … Continue reading

My recent problem w/ Kindle

I recently acquired a Kindle via my sister, the result of hearing her recount a sad dark tale of buying a Nook only to receive a Kindle for Christmas. I offered to buy the device with my $50 gift card and $25 cash to save her from the unfortunate situation of present redundancy. Well last … Continue reading

Extremely bad and incredibly obvious

                                                      Did he stick his hands into a beehive? Is his pituitary gland malfunctioning? While mildly humorous, no it is not. It’s the result of an absent-minded production artist … Continue reading

Was about to write something else before I came across this……

I was about to write a very thought-provoking entry which was to be summed up as a generally long-winded thesis concerning the musings of a young designer, when I came across the image below (found via Huffington Post).                                   … Continue reading
