Holstee Manifesto : Lifecycle Video

  The creatives at Holstee have tapped into something.  Their manifesto for life seems to have ignited a subculture to remember that:  Life is short.  Live your dream and share your passion. (it has been viewed over 50,000,000 times!) In keeping with the vibe of their graphic,  (which is available as an 18×24″ poster printed [...]

Be Guy Fawkes with OWS Bandana by Matthew Borgatti

Matthew Borgatti has done a lot of things: building movie monsters, prototyping, teaching, graphic design, illustration, product design, and fashion. He's currently working on a gigantic mobile pipe organ. After seeing protests erupt all over the world I wanted to make something that could change the game a little. I want people to be [...]

How Barbie Helps Us See That Healthy is the New Skinny

  My mom was smart.  She didn't allow Barbie in the house.  At the time, I pouted and wanted one of those round patent leather cases with her traveling wardrobe, and of course, Ken waiting ever-patiently in the car that was way too small for that case to fit in. So I never really aspired to Barbie's proportions from an up close [...]

Jay Shells is a Metropolitan Etiquette Authority

Snail Mail My Email Inspires the Written Word

I'm a letter and card writer.  Though, as I spend more and more time communicating online, less and less do I send snail mail.  So this idea is interesting, and may in fact inspire me to create this type of expression more. As its creators describe it: Snail Mail My Email is a month-long (July 15 - August 15), interactive community [...]

BirdProject : Restore The Gulf Habitat Bird by Bird

It's a little daunting sometimes, the sheer volume of things to be conscious of.  Global warming, the global economy, the state of the environment, the BP Oil Spill...remember that, the BP Oil Spill of April 20, 2010...and its aftermath? It does seem to have dropped off mainstream media's radar.  Nonetheless, designer Tippy Tippens [...]

Démocratie Créative : Street Art for the People to Play

This project has everything we love about street art.  It's engaging, original, spontaneous, and here's the difference...the call to action is immediate : taking back the streets for play. Created by the French collective, Démocratie Créative,  Spielplatz is a street art project which turns the streets into a playground. In their [...]

Pixar’s Austin Madison : Persist on Telling Your Story

This came to us through an artist who persists on telling his story, reminding us, not to give up: no matter what. Transcript PIXAR May 17, 2011 To Whom it May Inspire, I, like many of you artists out there, constantly shift between two states. The first (and far more preferable of the two) is white-hot, "in the zone" [...]
