Alicia the badass

Maybe it's because I'm a man but I just don't get the point of this ad.

I know we have issues with female body image and stuff in the media.

But really.

Are women actually gonna run down to the shops and buy a pair of Levis because Alicia Keys say they're badass?

Doubt it.

But then again I'm a man. So what would I know?

Less talking more doing

This venn diagram is three years old. It's still as valid as the day it was created.

Books & Wes Anderson

Books always feature in Wes Anderson films. And now someone has put together a lovely short film about his use of books. Shame they missed out Life Aquatic though.

Biz cards and telephones

This quote comes from the always funny Meeting Boy.

Struck a chord with me because on Friday I gave my card to someone and had to tell them not to ring the landline number on the card.


Because in a year and a half it had rung only twice.

So I got IT services to take it off my desk.

Everyone uses my mobile number anyway.

Of course I currently have a large box of biz cards in my drawer and all of them feature the number from the phone I had removed.

Painfully good ads

This campaign by DDB Paris has turned up on a lot of the ad blogs over the last week or so.

I love it. So had to share it too.

I'll never forget the day I took my now grown-up daughter for her first immunisation jab.

I reckon I cried more than she did!

Wish I'd made this!

Anyone got creative credits for this lovely piece of work?

Picnic posters for Herman

Herman Miller is a name synonymous with great design.

In 1970 a young designer call Steve Frykholm joined the company.

He made a name for himself designing posters for the company picnic.

Many of the posters are now design classics.

This cute little film tells the story.
