f8 Conference | Bernard Barry

Bernard Barry made some great posters that fit very well into the desired message of the recent f8 Conference. I'm not much of a fan of Facebook, but his incorporation of chaotic and organized elements is extremely well-balanced. I love these. #

2010.08.20 Patterns for Colouring

Patterns for Colouring

I wish this would have existed when I was a kid. This blog is full of patterns and drawings that are just waiting to be colored. Although I really liked a lot of these, I've printed off #2 and #54 to revisit my colored pencil collection. Kudos to Carlton Hibbert (the blog's author) for doing this. Truly awesome. #

2010.06.16 Hidden Posters of Notting Hill Gate Tube Station

Hidden Posters of Notting Hill Gate Tube Station

The tube station at Notting Hill underwent renovation in/around 1956-1959. During the process they sealed off a portion of the passageways, and left things as they were, including this set of advertisements on the walls, which were only recently discovered. #

Flashmob Surprise Birthday Song - YouTube

A bus driver in Copenhagen gets a surprise birthday song by the passengers on his bus and a random group of "protesters" in the street along his route. He's obviously immensely touched/moved by the experience, and I'll admit I was as well. Very cool. #

Crayons Carved As The 12 Chinese Zodiacs

Some very cool carvings by Diem Chau. What a great material to work with, and I love the intricacy of each piece. #

Mimeo and the Kleptopus King

I'm continually fascinated by the brilliance of Shaun Inman. Seriously. He's such an incredibly talented person, and this, his next project, doesn't appear to be any exception. Instead of the power-ups being provided just to the player (Mimeo), they're provided to the environment as well. #

2010.02.19 Parliament of Owls - Holiday Cards

Parliament of Owls - Holiday Cards

I love custom-made cards - birthdays, holidays, whatever. I think they have a bit more style and awesomeness in them. In this particular case, each of the members of this design team have created their own. Although each card is different, they carry a similar-ish theme (and color palette). I feel like I should start working now on my card for this year. #

2010.02.19 Old Spice - The Man Your Man Could Smell Like

Look at your computer. Now back to me. Now watch this. The making of one of my favorite commercials from the Super Bowl this year. All in one shot. I'm on a horse. #

2010.02.01 Bill Watterson - Cleveland.com

Cleveland.com gets a rare interview with the creator of Calvin & Hobbes - one of my favorite comic strips. His answers aren't very long, and he comes off a little harsh, but that has an added touch of charm to a creative genius like him. Still, interesting to read. "I think some of the reason 'Calvin and Hobbes' still finds an audience today is because I chose not to run the wheels off it." #

Darren Drew Design

Site of a new (to me) designer and illustrator, Darren Drew. I particularly like the retro, yet approachable feel to his work. It makes me want to try to make something like that. File this under inspiring. #
