Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’
Thomas J. Watson Jr., IBM CEO

Tales of mere existence – can you handle the truth?

Great animations, very insightful, by Lev Yilmaz. Visit his site to see his works, beautiful in their simplicity, honesty and last but not least, drawing detail.

Try to find the one called Branding (I can’t anymore, unfortunately), but first, definitely watch this one, called How to break up — it really takes the cake :))

Thanks Gina ;)

Bad Mudaf'

Found this on Corbis today, by accident :) Ike and Tina Turner, showing their “black power” (by the look on her face, I guess Tina was already fed up with Ike’s demonstrations of power).

Anyway, I guess it’s good tshirt graphics material :)

And by the way, if you want some BMF wallets like Samuel’s from Pulp Fiction, you can find more info here :)

About freelancing

October 19, 2007, 12:51 PM

A friend (thanks Flo) showed me this picture and I was delighted to see how well it catches the most important reason why freelancing as a full time job is not tempting (at least for me, at this time in my life). I love the hand-drawn type, goes very well with the subject, as do those cardboard boxes:

Ninjas all over the place

September 30, 2007, 2:13 AM

Loads of ninjas doing all sorts of stuff, from fighting, killing, training to cooking, floating and dancing, all in Scott Campbell‘s wall “scroll”. I’d definitely hang this on my wall (too bad it’s 150$ :(, but I guess art is worth paying for) – click for larger version:

It’s part of an exihibition called “Ninja Show: Revenge Of The Ninja 2”

Mafia 2

August 23, 2007, 10:23 PM

One of the best games ever gets its long awaited sequel. It looks awesome. It will be a long wait, but, hopefully, it wil be worth it. Can’t wait to hit the speed limiter and go cruizin’ throught the city again, feeling like driving a yacht :)

Twisted Transistor – KoRn

, 2:10 AM

One of the best music videos around, Twisted Transistor manages to entertain and energize me every time.

I mean, how can you stay serious seeing Snoop-Munky shouting: “Man, I don’t need no video, my music is my expression. Get outta m’face!” :)) Or Xzibit-Fieldy saying: “It’s pink!” “No, it’s psychedelic!” “Man, it’s PINK!” – reminds me of some client-designer talk :P

More details about the video here.
