Tag Galaxy is a tool that allows you to explore photos on Flickr. It is literally a galaxy of tags, where subjects take the form of planets. This is what I got when I searched for Union Jack
On the down side, I think the photos themselves are a little hidden, but it's an interesting navigation tool.

Perhaps the team behind this cover for a parenting magazine had just found out they were all out of a job - otherwise it's kind of hard to understand quite how the above made it off the printing press.

What makes some brands inspirational, while others struggle?
The answer is Lovemarks - a term to coin brands that inspire loyalty beyond reason.
"Take a brand away and people will find a replacement. Take a Lovemark away and people will protest its absence. You don’t just buy Lovemarks, you embrace them passionately."
My Lovemarks are: New York City, everything Apple, Scrabulous, Whole Earth Peanut Butter, Google, Hawaii Conditioner, Laurent-Perrier Pink Champagne and of course Cinnamon Creative!
What are your Lovemarks?

"These 'Body-Technology Interfaces,' (BTIs) in the form of hand-knitted custom wrappers for personal electronic devices, will reflect salient interaction behaviours between the participant and their chosen device."
One for the Dragon's Den?..
I don't think so.

Ladies jumping out of books, coloured cats, a garden in a bathroom, a hanging model and the most stylish messy room. All from the imagination of Tim Walker, a fashion photographer with an amazing eye for absurd detail whose images are witty and playful yet sufficiently sophisticated for his high fashion clients.
His creations are daring, theatrical and full of a magic that has rightly earned him his place in the high ranks of fashion photography stardom, and a Vogue master lineage, at only 37 years of age.
Glam, decay, fantasy, impressive lighting - it's all there - and well worth seeing, at the Design Museum, Shad Thames, London, SE1 2YD, until 28th September 2008.
