Really cool promo for the return of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Set in Toronto’s Union Station, the set of zombie-hands lose a finger with each passing day. I want to know how they sever each finger, and how many kids have run away screaming. What do you think about this innovative way of advertising?
Here’s what kept me busy the past 3 months or so. This is the culmination of my Graduate Communications Design Thesis at Pratt Institute. Noticing a disparity between the way we act online and the way we act offline, I set forth to try to reconcile the two personalities and give people a system that would help them have more positive interactions. Below is the project description:
Better Social provides a social platform that allows developers to add in specifically designed behavioral defaults to existing or emerging media with minimal additional programming. This helps assimilate new devices into the cultural ecosystem and provides a working guide for using them properly.
A beautifully minimalist Tequila identity by Manifiesto Futura. The packaging is a cool matte black masterpiece from top to bottom; the logo is a collection of simple shapes, and the information is printed directly on the bottle itself, no label necessary. If this was on the shelf I’d definitely pick it over the usual brands…would you?
Been meaning to share this for a while. VH1’s phenomenal rebrand helmed by New York agency Gretel, was necesitated by the company’s growing online properties. The (+) acts more as punctuation than logo, allowing the content to be the focus, and links together buzzwords for the increasing mobile culture. Simple, clean, bold, and understated. Well done. See the rebranding video here.
Design studio Bureau Rabensteiner came up with these heat-sensitive business cards for photo producer Natalie Daniels and I’m in love. When the cards are touched they lose color and patterns temporarily appear on them making them comparable to a constantly changing Polaroid. See more here.
