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 […]


Leon over at The Planning Lab has gone and done something downright brilliant for all of us young, aspiring planners. He asked two handfuls of planning’s greatest to share their advice for the next generation of planners (i.e. you & I). While there’s a ton of great stuff out there on the interwebs, right now […]


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]


I used to be a big fan of Yelp, posting immediately after eating at every restaurant, cafe and bistro I visited. But for the past nine months or so, I’ve been a little ‘meh’ about the whole Review or Die craze. Originally, the site itself was a helpful resource for finding thoughtful, honest reviews about […]


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 […]


I’ve mentioned TED.com before, but every time I come across an extraordinary video, I feel compelled to post it. So, here goes… Every week at the office, my team gets together to watch one TEDtalk and then discuss the content. Last week we watched Hans Rosling talk about the third world. Based on that poor […]


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 […]
