Rubik’s Cube Wonder!

Here is one cool packaging idea the Rubik’s Cube Font generator. The handiwork of Jas Bhachu of the Liverpool School of Art & Design, the cube has rubber stamp impressions on four of its sides, and by twisting it through different orientations can create a variety of characters. Inside the packaging there’s the cube itself, an ink pad and the instructions, which show all of the different arrangements which can be used to make letters and numbers.  It’ll be time-consuming and laborious, of course, not […]

Paper iPhone?!

You wouldn’t believe it, but the iPhone you see here is actually made of paper.  Yes found an old article from Gizmodo, wherein a subscriber sent in a PDF file on how to build one.  Here is what the article says. “A faithful reader by the name of Matt J. made a paper craft iPhone for you to print out and assemble at home with some scissors, scotch tape, and a little love. Maybe you can use it as a case for your nano/phone until […]

Worlds Most Expensive Commercial – Part 2

So, my article “Worlds Most Expensive Commercial Ever” made quite a stir when it was published. It was because of two things that the discussions started. Was it “CG enhanced or not” and was it really the “most expensive commercial ever“. Well, on the first point I have yet to see some true evidence that it was NOT cg enhanced in anyway. Some say there are plenty of proof in the “behind the scenes” footage of that commercial however I have unfortunately not seen it […]

World Record For Most T-Shirts Worn At Once

A few weeks ago we posted an article here on bitrebels entitled “How to Fold a T-Shirt in 2 Seconds.” I thought that article was great because it offered a very entertaining 24 second video that I couldn’t stop watching over and over. In keeping with the T-Shirt theme, I’ve found another entertaining T-Shirt video for your viewing pleasure. This video features Matt McAllister of KNIX in Phoenix, AZ setting the Guiness World Record for the most T-Shirts worn at once in 2006. At the […]

Embedded video… in a printed magazine!

Well we all knew it was coming, technology has been heading this way for a while and finally its hear.  Now the opportunities with this kind of media I believe are obviously limitless.  You have the best of both worlds, one the physical “held in your hand” nice feeling of printed media and the ability to speak or present moving images and sound to your readers. What do you think? Will this help or hinder the print business, or will it just be over ridden by the […]

RSS Feed Inspired Design

RSS (most commonly translated as “Really Simple Syndication” but sometimes “Rich Site Summary”) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a “feed”, “web feed”,or “channel”) includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship.  Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or […]

“Typography Everywhere”

Until the Digital Age, typography was a specialized occupation. Digitization opened up typography to new generations of visual designers and lay users.  Since digitization, typography has spread to a wider ranger of applications, appearing on web pages, LCD mobile phone screens, and hand-held video games. The ubiquity of type has led typographers to coin the phrase “Type is everywhere”. Here are two works of Pallete Design Industries that illustrates it to the T. The Dharma Lounge has come to fruition through the exploration of using […]

Web Design Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Designing and programming a website is a time consuming process that sometime gets unbalanced depending on how much influence the sole designer has on its creation. Too much freedom for the designer can sometimes create a website that doesn’t have much in common with the actual brand and/or company that the website is meant to promote. This can usually be avoided by bringing in more opinions in to the planning and framing of the website. I am fanatically interested in the ideas and guidelines that […]

A Life Lesson Learned from Dolphins

Have you ever wondered how dolphins or some whales can see in the cloudy water where they swim? I recently learned that they use a technique called echolocation which allows them to see without using their eyes. According to http://www.dolphinear.com, “Dolphins (and other toothed whales) can produce high pitched clicks. When these clicks hit an object, some of the sound will echo back to the ‘sender’. By listening to the echo and interpreting the time it took before the echo came back, the dolphin can […]

Its Big Mac time

McDonald’s Marketing has been relentless and, looking back, hilarious over time, cross-marketing not only in all media, but all countries and all ages. I can’t imagine anyone being oblivious to McDonald’s existence. With over 30,000 restaurants (mostly franchises) in more than 119 countries, serving over 47 million customers around the world. In 2000 alone, McDonald’s served over 16 billion customers. For perspective, that number is equivalent to providing a lunch and dinner for every man, woman, and child in the world! McDonald’s global sales were […]

USB Hub Watch Design

A watch is a fun gadget to design and found a USB Hub that doubles as a clock or a watch if you prefer big faced watches like I do. This USB 2.0 compliant 4-port hub features an analog style digital clock and a design that resembles a wristwatch. But, as you can see, it’s a bit too big to be used as a watch. Features: Watch Shape USB 4 Port Hub Clock display Clock setting button USB 2.0, support USB 1.1 Support up to […]

Web Design | From a Robots Perspective

Everyone knows by now that creating a website requires great skills in several areas depending on what kind of website you are looking to create. A lot of hours is put in to a project and more than often the client oversees the actually work and instead focus entirely on the end product. For them things just went from -“I want this…” to “Yeah, I like that but I’d like it to be like this instead now when I think about it…” Well, too often […]

5 Resources For The Geek In You

When did being a geek become so cool? I remember a decade ago, it was considered offensive to call someone a geek, now it is almost a compliment. Being a geek has transitioned from embarrassing, to mainstream, to cool. Is it because people these days are so technologically smart? Is it because the sexy guys in Hollywood always play the role of the humble geek in movies? I think we all have a certain degree of geek in us; it simply becomes a question of […]

Creative Stop motion films

I am always fascinated by stop motion films. They are usually loaded with creativity, energy and sooooo much work! I’ve selected a handful of creative films made by artists, photographers and designers alike. It took many producers several weeks to several months to create and edit these fantastic films. For example, SCINTILLATION was made from over 35,000 stunning photographs. This is definitely the kind of project I will add to my list of things to do before I die.
