Identity Recap

Brand New has a wonderful recap of the decades most relevant logos (Good and Bad). We included Verizon as the headline for this post not because it is the worst out of the bunch, well that is up for debate. But because until now we had no idea that Landor Associates had something to do with it.

To view the retrospective of the last decade head over to Brand New.

Call For Entries: Culture Counts

Wallpaper Dumpsters

A while back we posted about “The City of Brotherly Love” dressing up their recycle trucks with beautifully designed murals. Artist, Christine Finley has taken it further by wallpapering city dumpsters with bold, colorful patterns.

The artist states: Wallpapered Dumpsters transform environmental activism into unexpected beauty. I like to think of these interventions as polite graffiti. This project is an inquiry into urban waste, free art, and notions of femininity, beauty and domesticity.

Love it!

The Transformative Power of Personal Projects

Bored with his ad agency gig and the uninspiring work he was producing, Ji Lee – now Creative Director of Google Creative Lab – decided to take matters into his own hands in 2002. The result was the ad-spoofing Bubble Project, in which Lee placed blank speech bubbles on ads around New York City. The masses responded and the project went viral, gaining Lee recognition and ultimately forwarding his professional career. Here, Lee talks about how he created, financed, and marketed the project single-handedly.
