Creativity + Mac = Magic

The Apple Macintosh is the preferred computer of creative people everywhere. Always has been always will be.

Yes the Microsoft Surface might be great. And I know a lot of people who love Lenovo. But it's always been a Mac for me.

Ugly Beauty

These retro travel postcards are beautiful. Aren't they?

At least until you look a little closer.

They're by socially conscious Barcelona drinks company Ocean-52.

The campaign was created by Brooklyn agency Conquistadors.

As about their motivation for the work, creative director Mauricio Alarcon said, “Humans instinctively close their eyes to what’s not beautiful. That’s why we wanted to show the ugliest face of ocean pollution hypnotically.”

Which is exactly what these postcards do.

Planet Beer

This poster turned up in my Linkedin feed the other day. Really made me smile.

So I decided to do some digging and see if I could find out which beer brand it was for.

Unfortunately all a Google search revealed was that that headline was more of a meme than an ad. As there were literally dozens of t-shirts, caps, posters etc bearing the 'Save the earth' line.

Oh well. Still a lovely idea.

I just wonder how long it'll take before a socially conscious beer brand capitalises on it.

Defiant Mixtape

The Defiant Mixtape is a Guy Ritchie directed film for Beats headphones for the World Cup and I have to say I like it. I mean seriously what's not to love!?

Tasty cookies

Don't know 'bout you but I am so over websites notifying me about their use of cookies.

Especially when they tell you they use them to enhance your experience.

I mean...really?

The Drone Age

Remember how they did the Winter Olympics logo with the drones? Well now Time magazine have used the same technique to create their latest cover. This video takes you behind the scenes of its creation.

Happy birthday Liz

I honestly have no idea why we have a holiday for the Queen's birthday in Australia.

Especially when it's not even on the day of her birthday.

Anyway. I'm not complaining.

After much searching I managed to find an ad featuring Liz (or at least a look alike).

It's for Dutch newspaper Metro by Amsterdam agency Animal Farm.
