Dear Readers, 

I am officially no longer blogging via Blogger. I am moving on to better and simpler things, a.k.a. Tumblr. You can continue to follow me here.  For those of you seeking to do the switch, I strongly suggest using this, it took a minute or two and was extremely easy to use.  

Peace, Love and Helvetica.

On Vacation

 Just letting you all know that posts have been very slow because I am on vacation. Should be back in full force in a couple of weeks when I am back in town. Thought I'd share a picture I took of the view here in Amman, Jordan.

Hope you're all enjoying your summer.

Bicycle Wheel Clock

“This clock was made from a recycled aluminum bike wheel. The wheel mounts directly to the wall through the hub using a hollow wall anchor and gives the illusion that it is floating off the wall. The clock movement is a high torque German quartz movement and is attached to a set of rear cassette gears to conceal the movement. The movement is attached to the wheel by hanging it off of a screw coming out of the hub, and runs on 1 AA battery, included.”

Redesigning The Boarding Pass

Tyler Thompson has come up with these great alternatives to boring and generally confusing boarding passes. You should check out this blog to submit your own redesign of the boarding pass. Fun idea, too bad boarding passes are printed with thermal printers and can only generate black or 1 other color.

I hope these redesigns were sent to Delta. I think they're fantastic and oh-so-easy to understand.

poster girl | Jasper Goodall

Poster illustration/photography series entitled Poster Girl by British illustrator Jasper Goodall. 

In february 2009 Goodalls first London based solo Gallery show titled ‘Poster Girls’ marked a new direction in his work, mixing photography with illustration in a stunning concoction of shiny latex, dripping pink goo and acrylic cut out body masking that comments on fetishism, dressing up and the fine line between fantasy and reality.

He has quite an interesting interview with icon magazine where he reveals a lot about himself and his dark past. You can read that here. If you're familiar with Muse (the band), then you might be interested in knowing that he's the artist behind this.

This is what I call cmykinky.

Colors in Cultures

Designing something for a client of a culture you don't know much about? Do your research and be aware of what different colors mean in different countries. Here's a little chart I'd suggest copying onto your desktop (click on picture to enlarge). You never know when you'll need it!
