There are two types of people...

...according to the new blackberry ad, people that are 'content to go with the flow'/'people that don't' and people who 'grab life with both hands'/'people that do'; which are you? (is the concept).

Although not totally unique, the use of the spilt screen to juxtapose two similar looking scenarios but very different outcomes, makes this ad engaging and effective. I have also seen this technique used in the movie '500 days of Summer' (see below) which was also used effectively.

Spaces: Colour Starburst

So this is the Saguaro Palm Springs Hotel; this place sure does look like the ultimate location 'pick-me-up'. Well they do say architecture and interior design have emotional impact. It also seems to have a 1950's feel that im digging but with a modern-starburst-of-colour sorta twist.

Have you been here before? What was it like?

Tactile Typo

Stumbled upon Dominique Falla's typography work. All I will say is that the concepts and craftsmanship behind her work is intricate! Now that most things are digitally created, it definitely is nice to see a bit of tactile graphic design; which is not so often. At the very bottom is a stop motion of her journey.
