Use All Five Squiggle Graphic

IRL Ad Blocking and the Music Video, Rebooted

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of February 2nd brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.


To Be More Creative, Cheer Up: The way to tap your inner Hemingway is not how you think.

Designers’ Incinerating Embrace With Corporations: What if we are looking at the domestication of design – the very extinction of the discipline as the fount of creativity in our midst?

Who Really Owns The Art?: Whether the purchase is an original oil painting or a corporate logo, ownership rights are not the same as owning a toboggan, even if it is handmade from ancient oak found in the forests of Valhalla.


Invetame: Invent and craft your own game in the real world with your preferred physical stuff (pencils, markers, coloured wooden blocks, etc.)

Gum: An iPhone app that lets you stick messages to any barcode for others to discover.

The Society Of Grownups: Insurance company MassMutual Financial Group and design agency, IDEO, developed a “master’s program for adulthood,” a brick-and-mortar hybrid cafe and education center.


The Music Video, Rebooted: While it’s obvious enough that the digital age has rewired the manner in which music videos get around, I’ve been drawn to the way technology is shaping the way many of them actually look.

IRL Ad Blocking Headset: Brand Killer is a technology demonstration that envisions a future in which consumers can use augmented reality to opt out corporate influence.

Crowdsourced Drawing Depicts Imaginary Internet: A web based drawing experiment, aiming to create a “snapshot of the internet” by handing over some artistic decision-making to the virtual community.
