DHL: Trojan Mailing

Friday, February 21st, 2014


I might have to give this the best and efficient means of marketing budget for an amazing outcome. Many copy cats to follow.
I do recall way back in college, I had to cover up the FREE FEDEX box logo when I shipped via UPS.

Sunday, February 9th, 2014


Photographer Alex John Beck takes photos of your face, then mirrors them to see how different they are… It’s pretty radical to see how different your 2 halves are, and how the two make you unique. Stunning project.

Meet A Master Of The Dying Art Of Hand-Drawn Type

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

This is beautiful hand drawn type! This is something that is lacking in the digital type world though hopefully we get this humbleness and humaness in the art and craft of type back into it soon.

“Tracing the rounded lines of cursive on worksheets was a fundamental part of exercise in grade school–one that may soon become obsolete, as pen and paper are replaced by keyboards and screens. Job Wouters (a.k.a. Letman), a graphic designer based in Amsterdam, is on a one-man mission to sustain the dying medium of hand lettering, churning out meticulously executed forms that pay tribute to the versatility and beauty of good penmanship.”

Isaac’s Live Lip-Dub Proposal

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

This might be the best Marriage Proposal that I have seen in some time. It’s a mix of surprise, Broadway musical, roller coaster/amusement park ride, co-ordination, and a whole bunch of people! Anyhow, watch it and think how to top that and be original!

“Here’s to the Crazy One” Quote Poster

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Awesome Letterpress Poster! Too bad they  are not available anymore.

“The now iconic quote debuted in a 1997 television commercial for Apple Computer. The text was said to have been partially written by then Apple CEO Steve Jobs (along with Rob Siltanen and Ken Segall). He embodied the characteristics in this quote arguably better than anyone in history. Today it lives on as a mantra for artists, inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators around the world.”
