Photoshopped Ads Get Exposed in Berlin

Messing with ads in subways is becoming an artform, but this "Photoshopping" of ads in Berlin takes things to the next level by creating a Photoshop interface with stickers. Pitch-perfect adbusting.

More subway images here.

Nice new site: SketchSwap is a web based drawing board where you can draw something on the screen and receive a random drawing back in return.

Make sure you have your wacom at the ready if you want to be top of the tree.

Obamicon Me

Yes you can!

(Obama-ize yourself that is). Make your own "Obamicon" (your image in a style inspired by Shepard Fairey's iconic poster) over on Obamicon.Me.

Thanks to Holster for the link.

Fantastic Ad from T-Mobile

This is Saatchi & Saatchi's fantastic new T-mobile advert which was filmed at 11am on Thursday 15th January 2009 at London's Liverpool Street station, and aired on Channel 4 less than 48 hours later.

I love the random granny joining in and throwing in some shapes whilst holding her shopping.

Stamp of approval for British design classics

A set of first class stamps were issued today to commemorate ten icons of British design. The Royal Mail’s new series offers up a noticeably nostalgic look at some British Design Classics, largely from the 1930s and 1960s.

RJ Mitchell’s Spitfire, George Carwardine’s angelpoise lamp, Harry Beck’s map of the London Underground network and Edward Young’s designs for Penguin all originate from the 1930s.

The series of ten also includes Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s 1962 telephone box and Robin Day’s polypropylene chair for Hille Seating from 1963.

Classic designs like the Routemaster bus (manufactured between 1954 and 1968) and Concorde (1969-2003) have been retired relatively recently, but the 1965 mini skirt is still a classic of contemporary fashion, and the Mini (originally launched in 1959) has moved with the times and is actually the most popular British designed and built car ever. Not only that but its stylish design made it a hit with the trend setters of the swinging sixties with everyone from John Lennon and Marianne Faithfull to Peter Sellers and Steve McQueen owning one.

Type assault

When bad tracking and bad naming collide the results really can be bad.

Apple employee fired for thinking different!

This is funny, poor guy... shame on you for being so innovative.
