Transmoflection – Vancouver 2010

vancouver2010
Today, I unfortunately found out about the passing of Leo Obstbaum, the design director for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. What also saddened me, is that nobody I mentioned this to had a clue of who he was or that the 2010 Winter Olympics released a graphic identity a year ago and what it looks like.

This post is memory of Leo and for those who had no idea… perhaps you can check it as ‘that one thing you learned today’. Continue reading…;

What’s next… Papyrus?

There’s always THAT dreaded day in every large organization, when a genius ‘marketing guru or diva’ decides it’s time for change. The bad news? They are in charge… IKEA has dropped their custom made ‘IKEA Sans’ as their main typeface and instead will be using Verdana from now on, in an attempt to make the brand consistent and be able to use the same font for print or web.

Scan this!

iphonescan
Who said print is dead?? Advertising is taking yet another turn towards interactive and multimedia with interactive print ads. Yes, sounds a bit marketing-ish but truth is, these new ads including a 2D scan code have been appearing more and more in magazines, newspapers, and even outdoor media. How does it work? Simple, download a scanner application for your mobile phone, snap a photo of the printed 2d scan square, scan it and you’ll be directed to a page the advertiser has made just for you.

Yellow little bird…

YellowBird

Over the past few years we’ve seen 3-D panoramic photographs become popular on the Web.

You’d end up with YellowBird. Continue reading…;

Live!

Finally, I think my new toy is ready to go live. I’ve played with CSS and PHP for a few days, yet I still feel there are minor glitches that need to be addressed, but it’ll get better as I go. I promise.

Welcome to my blog. Look around and hope my ideas and rants help and inspire you… And yes, I would like to know what you think. Thanks!
