This year at the Academy Awards there was one entry in the animated shorts film that has drawn a lot of attention. Make sure you check out the short film Logorama. EVERYTHING in this entire film is made out of existing logos, from the buildings to the main characters. There is a trailer available on the idsgn blog, and with some inventive searching you can find the entire film. You can also purchase it on iTunes.
We all know about construction webcams. Typically they are static images that refresh occasionally from a single position. This is interesting and helpful, but I would love to see a construction webcam that is set up like this ski resorts webcams. At Park City Mountain Resort in Utah, they let webcam viewers take control of the webcams allowing angle and zoom change. If multiple viewers are requesting camera control at once a short queue is generated.
The most memorable childhood toys aren’t usually very sophisticated, high-tech, or used in the way they were designed to be used. Successful toys are a tool for the imagination. A cardboard box is a tool because it can be manipulated, rotated, it can house something within its volume, and its simplicity lends itself to take on many different meanings.
Sometimes we get caught up in the daily drum beat of our profession. So when an outside of the box idea like www.vanitybarcodes.com shows up, it’s a nice little reminder to look for the ordinary and make it extraordinary.
