FOOD FLAGS ///

This is pretty old, but I still love it. “An advertising agency has come up with a campaign to promote the Sydney International Food Festival: flags made from food typical of each country. The flag of Italy is made of basil, pasta and tomatoes.”

THINKING CREATIVELY 2010 ///

This year marks the 7th annual Thinking Creatively Design Conference, held at Kean University. The conference this year includes a wide-ranging panel of speakers and is being held alongside the IDSA Conference, also at Kean this year.

SAHREVICTOREWILKER ///

I was fortunate enough to meet Jan Wilker (one half of karlssonwilker) at the Princeton Design Conference this past weekend. He’s an all-around spectacular guy and a smooth talker too. That being said I feel like I couldn’t possibly mention his name without also noting the summer workshop he’s running with Paul Sahre and James...

PRINCETON DESIGN CONFERENCE ///

One of the best things about working on campus at Princeton University is being able to attend the Princeton Design Conference. This is the third year that the Student Design Agency is putting it on and it may be the best lineup of speakers, in my opinion, thus far. Last year’s conference included some incredible...

SEED CATHEDRAL ///

I was blown away when I saw these images of the Seed Cathedral currently under construction in Shanghai. The building will be the centerpiece of the UK Pavilion for the Shanghai Expo, starting May 1, 2010. 60,000 long clear acrylic rods form the outside of the building; at the end of each of the rods...

DUNGJAI PUNGAUTHAIKAN ///

Print. HOW. Step. Those are the magazines that most designers/students subscribe to. Not me. While I was in design school I worked in the offices of a furniture retailer and one day the owner’s wife left her copy of Metropolis in the lunch room and so I picked it up. The cover drew me and...

MOODY NEWS ///

How do you feel about the news today? Now you can let everyone know. NBC has launched something similar to a tag cloud, with percentages on opinions on the article. In the drop down, you have the following options: intrigued, thrilled, furious, sad, bored, laughing. If your feelings can’t fit into those categories then you’re...

CLIENTS FROM HELL ///

Clients from hell is a wonderful site sharing some of the great things that can come from working with clients as a creative. some of my favorites are “Can you take the bottle out of her hand, we don’t want to make it seem like we are against breast feeding.” “You can take off $1289.86...

STEFAN KANCHEV ///

Last fall I started teaching. My first class was History of Visual Communications, one of my favorites as a student. When I was in school I loved learning about the rich visual history of graphic design, feeling as though maybe there was some way my own career could contribute to the great succession of work...
