One question

Been quite hectic and mental the last couple days. Feeling down and uninspired. Swamped and all.

Check out the video below. Love the concept. Might try something in print form. Ask people around/people I know… compile it into a book. Would be awesome. If you wanna participate. Put your name and desired location in the comments.

Take care,

Very interesting links

http://creativesear.ch

It searches wikipedia, google, google images, youtube, twitter, amazon, sounds, blogs and more. – Super cool. Brought to you by D&AD. You can pull the windows around for the search results you’d most likely look at. ie. if you never look at amazon, you can just pull the window down to the bottom and never look at it again. However, it is there if you ever need it again, its at the bottom.

This is also one of the more amazing ads by Leo Burnett for McDonalds I have seen.

It’s been a while

Hi there,

It’s been a long long time since I have posted anything on here. It has been a rough summer and the start of the second year at University has not been soft. I am already backlogged and going slightly mad; but nevermind.

I have finally officially picked my avenue in Graphic Design that I want to take: Advertising. I’m not 100% sure why, but I just know I’ll love it. The competitiveness, the psychological side to it… I find it the essence of Graphic Design. A design that I can measure. I am big on Numbers and Stats. Being able to know that a design did something: raise awareness, raise sales/revenue… etc

While going through many interesting and inspiring firms and their work. I came across these two Videos which are pretty amazing. Not much to do with advertising. But fun and interesting none the less.

Back from Amsterdam

Wow, it’s been forever.

I’m safely back from Amsterdam and currently staying in Plymouth for another 2 weeks. Bored to death here. Bad atmosphere.

New edits

I have been increasingly behind on my editing. I take my camera everywhere and then shoot off 200+ photos, and then having to sort through them is just dull really. But here are a few I have edited recently, though they are not necessarily taken recently.

Hope you like them,

Teen Web Language

For some obscure reason, I came across a page on a NBC page that listed the common teen slang on the internet.
It really intrigued me, as I was never into the !33+ talk and rarely typed that way when using IMs. My friends did though. It really annoyed me actually, as I thought it was easier to just type the entire sentence/word. I was a fast typer. 

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12221779/?pg=1#dtl_teen_lingo_online 

That is the site there, and it lists all these really obscure abbreviations that I have never even heard of.
AWGTHTGTTA – Are we going to have to go through this again”  Who types that? Ever? I had trouble copying it from the site.
B4UKI – Before you know it” Who says that either?
NALOPKT – not a lot of people know that” That’s just obscure.
I still use simple terms like “BRB” or “IMO (in my opinion)” but all that stuff is really quite ridiculous. Oddly though, it was just so ridiculous that I had an idea to practice some typography techniques or some sort of graphic, with all these weird abbreviations. 
A sarcastic poster or something making fun of this teen language.
Phew I passed through the teen age unharmed and mentally stable. 

I’ll keep you posted on whether I actually do it.
