The Q

Designed by Andreas M Hansen, the Q is the world’s first social camera. In today’s world we’re all about connecting and sharing no? This very hipster/cool/clever invention has amazing design aesthetics all round. From their advertising to the product itself and all its applications.

I particularly like the Q’s manifesto:

To get the most out of life, you have to embrace the new. There are new places, and new people. New experiences, and new feelings. New highs…and new lows. But it’s always worth giving it a shot. After all, if we never did anything out of the ordinary, then no one would have any stories to tell. We wouldn’t be able to make moments special. Memories wouldn’t be worth sharing. So, it’s a good thing we can make the ordinary extraordinary. Because if you don’t limit your expectations, you’ll find that there’s no end to the possibilities. You can do the unexpected. You can go the extra mile. You can live in the moment. So give it a shot. Shoot for the sky. Shoot for the stars. Just shut up and shoot.”

Stop Phubbing

How does one creatively market a dictionary? McCann Melbourne created a brand new word to do so – “Phubbing – the act of snubbing someone in a social setting by looking at your phone instead of paying attention.” They created an an entire site and a Facebook page dedicated to their very own word. Their interactive site is quite cool although it does go on for a bit too long.

Candy coloured candles

Time for some pretty packaging people. I want to eat these candles by bella j. Something about the colours makes me think of candy. Hip hip hooray and Tie-dye are my favourites. The delectable designs are by New York based artist Sujean Rim. These lines in her about section kind of just made my day – “As a kid, I loved running around my cement backyard and enjoyed Sundays, when I could read Charles Schulz’s Peanuts in the paper and watch Bugs Bunny all morning with a giant bowl of Cocoa Pebbles. Comics, cartoons and picture books inspired me to draw and want to be an artist. I wanted to be everything from a painter to a sculptor.”

Towel Folding Infographics

Look no further. I have found the answer to the question you have been asking all your life – how do they fold these napkins like this?  Terry Fabrics has come up with a towel-folding infographic that teaches you how to fold your towels in the shapes of animals! I’m going to try the mouse and the crab. Everything else looks like some serious origami that I cannot fathom.

Malmo Festival 2013

The folks at Snask in Stockholm were in charge of creating a theme for the 29th edition of Malmöfestivalen, Scandinavia’s largest city festival. The theme they decided on? Paper. The outcome is one gorgeous magazine cover that looks a little surreal. Like it might just be a 3D image, but it isn’t!

1000 Lives

I love me some good artistic film. Christian Dior has launched “1000 Lives”, a new Dior Homme film featuring Robert Pattinson. It captures a character so beautiful in hidden moments that feel like memories.  It makes me want to spend a weekend with my camera, exploring everything everywhere.

Cookies are proof that life is good

Designed by Ferroconcrete in Los Angeles, these colourful cookies speak to you off the shelves with very clever insights on well, cookies! Such refreshing packaging design always brightens up the aisles of a supermarket.

On a side note, this was on Ferroconcrete’s site: “How do you fall in love? You may be attracted to the looks, but you fall in love with the personality. It’s the same for any brand. It’s our job to fall in love with your brand and pass it on.” What a lovely way to describe a brand. Why can’t more advertising folk speak like this?

Good design is for good clients

I wish I could stamp this on my client’s foreheads. Or on their briefs. Designed by vbg as a new years compliment to their clients, these stamps read “Good design is for good clients”. So simple and so true.

Twixl Chalk Movie

I came across this amazing video today. With uplifting old school music and the sheer talent of these two artists, it’s a joy to watch. I don’t know how they draw so perfectly without any outlined markings anywhere. The messages are simple, and somehow, as simple as it is, it makes me want to do better. To be better and follow my dreams. Watch the video here. Happy Monday everyone!
