Just another design blog

This made me laugh. A concept from Maan Ali. Think Trident have missed a trick here, or any gum manufacturer for that matter. This concept ties great with Movember too!

Edit: Just as I posted this I stumbled on a similarly thought out concept from Maan Ali again. I’m starting to like this guy

Found this old board game during my trip to the second-hand bookstore yesterday morning. It caught my eye for illustrative reasons mostly, however I do also enjoy the excessive wording in old design. The need to show the playing age so big and bold, and as part of the strapline is funny.

Yes! An amazingly simple, yet incredibly powerful newspaper advert from Ecotricity last week in The Guardian. I love risk taking in any form of design, but none other than print, where there is no way back. Newspapers are(were?) the pinnacle of print and an expensive double page spread in The Guardian wouldn’t have been taken lightly. This cheered me right up this morning and reminded me there are still some companies willing to take risks for great design.

I am currently torn as to whether I need an iPad or not. If the answer is yes, this beautiful thing has to be it’s partner in crime.

By total accident, this happened in my phonebook. It made me laugh.

A beautifully simple logo design for Run, an association that promotes sport in the unprofessional sport community. Designed by Omar Shammah, It is playful, extremely minimalist, and has been elegantly executed. My favourite things. Although, I do have one gripe. It’s too much like The Sun newspaper, and that really annoys me. Am I too judgmental? maybe. Afterall, Omar is based in Damscus, Syria, where his day to day interaction with design is probably far removed from mine.

What a fantastic, simple, educational game for Graphic Designers. I often get frustrated by the pen tool in Illustrator and this nifty little game has already taught me a few things. It is has a beautiful interface too!
