An interesting way to personalize a site and invite conversation and sharing is this add to Pite Creative Services website. It shows Jonathan's passion for photography and adventure and gives more of an insight into his personality.

Check out the fresh new packaging from Duffy and Partners. This is the second complete revamp they have worked on for the brand and this is one fresh look (Thursday pun alert). Really clean and open look this year with an eye to on shelf, but you kind of expect that from the powerhouse design company.

It's that time of year. Time for you to get some great gifts and refresh your old calendar. Lucky for you, your friends Nicky and Stuart Alden have both covered. They are currently selling these and many more delightful art pieces that double as a calendar. All screen printed and, word is, some of them glow. Get yours before they are gone.

Wouldn't have predicted saying this earlier, but Radio Shack has successfully updated their image (television anyway) to a more quirky, attention grabbing look and feel. I actually like seeing these. Who knew? Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners / San Francisco, California, USA

When art can help communicate science and bridge the gap between the expert and the novice, I admit, I get a tad bit giddy. Exquisite Corpses used for more than just surrealistic party games... how awesome is that? Check out more of the brilliance here.

The voice over is spot on, although I don't believe it was intended for the states, and the copy is delicious. Top it off with some wonderful-impromptu cuts and editing and you have one wonderful spot that centers around their product. Joy to watch.

Not a new idea, just took some time for the always busy Tattoo shops to catch on to the idea. Love the idea since you probably couldn't find anyone who would try this and not like themselves with a tattoo.
In Japan you can now use AR in a Vending Machine, good idea. Users can bring a printout or use your cell phone to access it, ok, not so intuitive (especially since there is a window with actual product right there). Afterwards (and here is where there could be gold) you hold the product up and get (awesome so far) to see the (wait for it) ingredients and nutritional value... let down!
If only they would have been entertaining, I guess we'll have to give them some time, they are sooooo close!

Some times you get to see an idea that few could think of. This is one of those golden nuggets. Maybe a bit too graphic for my taste at the end but wonderfully cast and shot. Director: Matt Devine, The Glue Society for Metal On Metal.

I will never be able to think of Mrs. Claus in that way...(I was going to say again, but that feels wrong too)... but I will remember this ad for a long time. Nice Christmas Extension of a fun campaign.

We could all use a little better design on the packages, especially if it brightens up a commodity that doesn't really want to change. Here's to posting it so someone picks it up. Concepts by illustrator Sanna Annukka via TheDieLine
