Flickd – Design

I’ve been obsessing about design lately. 

I used to believe life was all about timing but I have changed my mind.  Now I firmly believe life is all about design.  Some things work by design while other things don’t… by design.

On a simple scale, this bridge is illustrative of that very idea.

(I have no idea where this bridge is… sorry)

Rock Paper Sissors

Guess what’s happening on October 25th?  The Rock Paper Sissors World Championship in Toronto, Canada!   This is one of the few “sports” everybody can get in on… so get in on it!  

I dig the ‘viva la revolucion’ feel of the posters and the Dilbert-officiality (my blog, my word) of the RPS Society Web site, but the brand could definitely be improved upon.  That would be a bad ass addition to any body’s portfolio. (hint hint)  One thing that couldn’t get any better is the tag…

“Serving the needs of decision makers since 1918”

I wonder if there are Official Thumb Wars too?

Ahhh… Youth

Vodafone aired this commerical titled Youth in Romania last month.  It taps into how “Some things work only until a certain age.  So make the most of being young.”  Not sure how this correlates to a mobile phone provider but I love the truth of the phenomenon.

Owww… that REALLY hurt!

 

Doesn’t Banksy‘s latest NYC piece remind you of the YouTube darling, Charlie Bit My Finger?

T.S.A. Communication

The perfect gift for a world traveler (or anybody who wants to go to jail) – Evan Roth‘s T.S.A. Communication

From the Web site:

T.S.A. Communicationis a project that alters the airport security experience and allows the government to learn more about you then just what’s in your backpack. Thin 8.5 x 11 inch laser-cut sheets of stainless steel comfortably fit in your carry on bag, simultaneously obscuring the contents you don’t want the TSA to see while highlighting ideas you do want them to see. Change your role as air traveler from passive to active.

Here is what the T.S.A. see on the x-ray monitor:

I hope they are customizable one day because those aren’t the comments I really had in mind…

DIY #3: ‘Stache It Out

Moustaches are powerful tufts of hair. 

Luckily not everybody can grow one, but that shouldn’t stop anybody from harnassing it’s power.  That’s where the finger ‘stache comes in…

 

Instructions:

  1. Draw a moustache on the side of your clean pointer finger with a Sharpie marker
  2. Place same finger under your nose on your top lip (now do you see why I suggested the finger be clean?)
  3. Voila!

If you aren’t into drawing on yourself you can always use this pre-made moustache masterpiece, but I’m warning you that it won’t be as much fun!
