Walking around New York City

TheeBlog-DiegoGuevaraNYC

There’s something magical about NYC. Something that many people love but only few can describe well. I personally am in love with this city and its incredible architecture, fast-paced culture, artistic background, design & creative environment, impressive history and of course, fashion. Every visit feels different, and helps re-charge and inspire the hell out of me! (Don’t worry Miami, you will always have a special place in my heart) As most of you already know, although I’m a Designer, I love Photography and always carry my camera with me… So I thought it would be a good idea to share a few photos from my visits, inviting you to see NYC from my point of view and why not, some of my Photography.

Live The Language

TheeBlog-AlbinHolmqvist

The world is moving fast, and learning a new language seems imperative in this day and age. (No, lorem ipsum is not considered a language, even if we have it memorized so move on to a different one). And what better way to learn a new language than a collection of beautiful videos combined with stunning and delicious typography by Barcelona based Albin Holmqvist. You must watch all four videos, shot in Paris, London, Barcelona and Beijing after the jump and fall in love again with type ;)

PETA’s banned ‘Veggie Love’

TheeBlog-Peta

As you might know by now, PETA is an American animal rights organization. Over the past few years they have become notorious not only for exposing and fighting -sometimes a bit too much- big organizations and individuals that ‘exploit’ animals, but for their provocative and risqué advertising featuring nude celebrities. And for the past two years, they have launched ‘banned’ Super Bowl commercials, also known as ‘clever viral videos’ inciting viewers to ‘Go Veg’. So, why are these ads banned you ask? Because they use the oldest trick in the book, by ‘exploiting’ dumb humans and sex. It’s a vicious circle my friends…
