Is the SSD a Super Drive or Not?

There is a lot of buzz lately about SSDs (solid state drives). On the surface, they appear to be a much more attractive option than a HDD (standard hard disk drive) because they are much faster (many many times faster), more reliable, use less power (and generate less heat) and are less fragile (since no spinning platters or other moving parts). Since there are no moving parts that have to “spin up,” SSDs are completely silent (aside from the cooling fan) and they use much […]

Typography is Design

Typography is crucial in any design.  What is Typography?   Typography (Etymology: typos—type, graphos—written) is the art and technique of arranging type, type design, and modifying type glyphs. Type glyphs are created and modified using a variety of illustration techniques. The arrangement of type involves the selection of typefaces, point size, line length, leading (line spacing), adjusting the spaces between groups of letters (tracking) and adjusting the space between pairs of letters (kerning).  Found these cool typographic inspired posters that I am sure will show you […]

3 Fascinating Flash Mobs

I love flash mobs. I don’t know if it’s the creativity and talent or the element of surprise that gets me, but I’m completely fascinated by them. I have noticed a correlation between the popularity of flash mobs and the popularity of social media. I did not know that these two things officially had a symbiotic relationship until I read the definition below. I love both of them! In case you are unfamiliar with a flash mob, let me give you the Wikipedia definition: “A […]

Unique Packaging

Its always a treat to find unusual package designs.  Designing packages can be very tricky.  It must convey the essence of the product and must also be visually enticing for consumers to actually look closer.  There are so many cool and unusual packaging out there and these are just samples that caught my attention. One is the promo package by Low Ink Studios. The Last Cigarette.  It may look morbid but if you look at it closely it does convey the message directly.  The color […]

Are You An Airline Geek?

I just learned about a new sub-species of geek this week. It is the classic airline geek. According to the Washington Post, airline geeks are “…frequent fliers who chase inaugural flights because they adore airlines, airplanes, even airports. They seek to be part of airline milestones.” Upon further investigation, I’ve also learned that an airline geek usually knows off the top of his head the fastest route between two cities, he is someone who meticulously chooses his seats online, and he always prints the boarding […]

Edible Sculptures

A few years ago I sent my dad a book called “Play with your food.” I love the creativity behind all of the funny creatures and characters that are revealed in this book, and since then, have evolved into collections of ‘food sculptures.’ They remind me of Michealangelo’s comment about the sculpture “David”: “I merely removed the unnecessary marble, ‘he’ was already inside it.” If you attend your local state/country fair you will no doubt have seen “butter” sculptures or to my delight, chocolate sculptures […]

Lifesaver Bottle

During the twin tragedies of the Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, Ipswich water-treatment expert Michael Pritchard winced helplessly at televised coverage of throngs of refugees waiting for days for a simple drink of clean water.

Using a non-chemical ceramic filter designed to block viruses measuring in at a miniscule 25 nanometers, the Lifesaver bottle can make the most revolting swamp water drinkable in seconds. Better […]
