Movie Poster Cliche – Mosaic Compilation

Category : Uncategorized

I was doing a bit of research for movie poster designs and check out what i found.

French film distributor Christophe Courtois has evidently seen thousands of film posters in his life: witness his spot on and often hilarious film posters mosaics, each one highlighting a different film poster cliché. For instance: yellow indie film posters, blue nature documentary posters, and action movie posters of a guy running in a blue street while leaning slightly.

Look, I’m not going to go into great detail about what I’ve been doing with Siri during my testing period, but I will tell you this — Siri says some crazy stuff.

Hit the gallery below for a look at a number of bizarre items the AI-powered / voice-recognizing “intelligent assistant” lays on you on the new iPhone 4S. (more…)


An Artist’s Brush for the iPad – The Sensu Brush

Category : Uncategorized

Artist Hardware, a group who usually designs products for other companies, has decided to develop a project of their own. They’re using Kickstarter to fund the production of the Sensu Brush, a true artist’s brush for the iPad.

And since the iPad is portable, the brush should be too, right? They designed the handle for dual function—to reverse as a cover with a stylus on the end. See the promo video below.

Batman’s History on the Silver Screen

Category : Uncategorized

Another bit of history following the evolution of Batman’s Logo

No other superhero has changed faces or directions more, for better or worse, than the Caped Crusader. Batman’s long strange trip through film is a tale of success, followed by a hellacious fall. But as Alfred would remind us, “Why do we fall,sir? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.” So, in anticipation of the Dark Knight here’s a history of Batman in movies. (Note: I will start with the first full-length rendition, 1966′s Batman: The Movie. You can check out the serialized big screen origins of Batman in this week’s Old Ass Movies.)

Nutella Snack and Drink

Category : Uncategorized

Ok…… this got my attention via Stumbleupon (you gotta love stumbleupon!!)

Ferrero, which produces Nutella, the world’s beloved chocolate and hazelnut confection, has come up with the Nutella Snack & Drink which is divided into sections containing: a serving of Nutella, bread-sticks, and some iced tea. Although this product was created at least 2 years ago in Italy, it has yet to reach Singapore. Lets hope that it comes our way soon!

But, if you’re in the US…the Nutella Snack & Drink is $3.25 at Buon Italia, Chelsea Market, 75 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10011 (212.633.9090).

10 Myths About Introverts

Category : Uncategorized

 

Just a little something that i’d like to share. No i did not write this, im just doing something i call “internet praphrasing” in other words, i copied it straight from the source. I consider myself somewhat of an introvert and i approve of this message 😀

I was lucky enough to discover a book called, The Introvert Advantage (How To Thrive in an Extrovert World), by Marti Laney, Psy.D. I feel like someone has written an encyclopedia entry on a rare race of people to which I belong. Not only has it explained many of my eccentricities, it helps me to redefine my entire life in a new and positive context. (more…)


Minimalist Packaging by Antrepo

Category : Uncategorized

 

An excerpt from the website, “Our last project is about simplicity and we try to find alternate simple versions for some package samples of the international brands. We think almost every product needs some review for minimal feeling.”

These minimalist design repackaging ideas caught my eye. I just wanna share it with you. The samples include Mr Muscle, Durex, Red Bull, Corn Flakes, Nesquik, Nutella, Schweppes and Pringles, and while some work better than others it’s an interesting look at packaging.

Why a Good Logo is Important to your business

Category : Uncategorized

 

(screen shot taken from google images)

Do you often judge a book by its cover? We’ve often been told not to do so, but i guess in some contexts, we do it on a daily basis. While browsing thru a book/magazine store, most of us will be attracted to something that appeals to us. In a split second, we make a decision directly based on which design, graphical element or colour to pick up and browse through.

Now try and imagine if you or your business has a very boring or dull presence on the web (Im assuming your company is, since its the norm in this day and age, if not i guess even being in yellow pages needs something as eye-catching too) more often than not, a prospective client has just chosen your competitor for their business over you because of your company branding/logo. In some ways, it shows how much effort and seriousness one has in his/her company.

Seating at the edge of your seats yet? read on through then 😀

Anatomy of a typeface

Category : Uncategorized

 

How do you tell one typeface from another? If you’re trying to distinguish Helvetica from Times Roman, the difference is obvious. In other cases, however – especially between text designs having similar characteristics – the differences can be subtle and difficult for the less–experienced eye to see. One important step in training your eye to notice the details that set one design apart from another is to examine the anatomy of the characters that make up our alphabet.

As in any profession, type designers have a specialized vocabulary to talk about the different parts of letters. It isn’t necessary to commit the entire list to memory, but familiarizing yourself with this terminology will make it easier to communicate about typefaces and their characteristics. It will also help educate your eye to recognize the underlying structure of various designs and the differences among them.
