Life is But a Dream - Siebe Warmoeskerken (10 pics)



Looking through Siebe Warmoeskerken's Flickr stream, you can't help but think that life is but a dream. The way he brings objects in focus and takes objects out of focus is amazing. Not only does this add depth to the picture, it reminds us to stop and enjoy the little things in life and it reminds us to keep the right things in focus.



"I'm an 21 year old…

Y Water



Y water is bottled water. Simple? No. Other than looking really cool, every colour bottle contains a different kind of mineral. It'll give your body some help with your brain function (hehe), the immune system, the muscles and the bones.

The bottles are also toys.



"Y knots are thingys that make Y bottles stick together. They fit on the ends of the bottles so you can connect and… Continue

Logo Evolution Examples (7 pics)



Logo's change just like you change. The way a company projects itself to the consumer, relies heavily on the graphic design of the logo. Corporate identity lies in the core values of a company. Like you...As you grow you will have different wants and needs. So you dye your hair from red to black. But at the core...You're still You.



The changing of a logo is followed throughout all visual aspects of branding. Think business cards,…

Introducing: The Camper Kart (Video)

Inspired by Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road (and the film of the same name that opened this week) artist Kevin Cyr has created a shopping cart that you can live in. Although large enough to house the artist who is 5'8 Cyr views this as more of a piece of art than functional design telling the LA Times:



"I don't consider myself a designer. These are pieces of sculpture. My work is about making a statement. It's about getting people to talk… Continue
