This makes me think differently about infographics. Too often, they’re relegated to the business world, but what about their role in everyday life? To me, it seems that they could play a large part in reducing waste in people’s lives – whether it’s the bathwater above, or the dishwater. I love this idea found on […]


It’s always sort of like finding a secret treasure when you run into something unexpected on Google’s Street View. Last year, Google caught Cubs Manager Lou Pinella walking down Clark Street, just outside the Friendly Confines. But this one is no coincidence. Pittsburgh artists Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley organized a neighborhood-wide production when the […]


Another homerun by Honda. This time, to promote their affordable hybrid, they used headlights as a makeshift LED screen. Not only is it beautiful work, I’m thoroughly impressed that an idea of this magnitude and complication actually got through the agency/client process. Maybe I’m a little jaded, but (much!) simpler ideas than this have been […]


Cool x 10

I’m simply in awe of this music video for Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie. It’s beautiful. It’s whimsical. And it’s exactly what I imagine dreams to be. [via Snippets & Snapshots]


So I went to my second Pecha Kucha Night tonight. [For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, click here.] And while I really liked all of the presentations, there was one that stood out from the rest. Jesse Seay started a website called FavoriteChicagoSounds.com. And it’s exactly what you’d think it is: […]


Killed Ideas

27Feb09

Steve Hall and the folks over at Blurb have launched killedideas.com, a sanctuary for all ideas that went before their time. All entries will be evaluated based on the ‘greatness’ of the idea, and the best of the worst will be published in Killed Ideas Volume 1. Kudos to Blurb on this one. I love […]


An airport in Stockholm is getting creative with an old 747. Oscar Dios, the brain and owner behind Jumbo Hostel, saw another use for the plane destined for the junkyard. Check out this video from The Guardian for more details about the project. via Treehugger


Will’s digital bites seem like the perfect way to organize all those doodads and bits of useful information you find online – and yet can’t seem to find when you need them. I can see so many uses for this – work, personal, project specific, client presentations, social media, and the list goes on. Bravo, […]


From the same people that created the amazing Universe. They’re at it again with DoodleBuzz, a combination of everyone’s favorite pasttime, doodling, and the need to stay up on current events. Admitedly, it took me a couple minutes to figure this out, but once I did, the fun began. How to DoodleBuzz: Type in a […]


I don’t know the answer, but I hear The Atlantic does. I’ve always been a fan of The Atlantic [Monthly] magazine. Their content and history is what originally drew me in years ago. But now, with another redesign, some uber-provocative ads and a new website, my love has been renewed. [Compliments to Euro RSCG and […]
