"Don't Forget"...

It's not that we didn't already know that there's a lot of work going on behind the scenes to make celebs look beautiful. (If we need to be reminded we just have to find articles about Kate Winslet on this subject matter.) But it's fun to see artists take an ad and turning it into a statement. The project… Continue

Beautiful Photo Shoot of Actress Olivia Wilde in Flaunt Magazine

I absolutely love this photo shoot of Olivia Wilde in Flaunt Magazine. You may have seen Olivia in the FOX drama House or you if you like slasher films, you'll recognize her as Bea in Turistas.

Lite-Brite Luggage: DotDrops

Finally! A cool black luggage bag that doesn't look like the same old/same old thing everyone's scootin' around. Customize it yourself with a grid of colorful "microdots" or plastic chits that are affixed permanently to the front. I'm loving the old school pink pacman but I'd probably design mine with Mario (from Super Mario Bros) or Luigi (that guy in green got no… Continue

A Little Funky and A Whole Lotta Fresh: Orla Kiely for Target

I'm digging the retro throwback of these plates and mugs by Orla Kiely. Orla certainly has that 70s vibe going on and though some of it may be a little too funky, taken in small doses it comes off fresh. Launched in 1997, Orla has carved a niche in the fashion scene with her use of color, geometry and… Continue

What's G?

Gatorade's taking a gamble by rebranding themselves just by the letter "G". In these new commercials, mega rap star Lil' Wayne narrates a description of what "g" represents, as popular sports figures like Dwayne Wade, Serena Williams and Bill Russell stare into the camera.

"[G's] the emblem of a warrior, it's the swagger of an athlete, a champion and dynasty," Wayne says in the commercial. "It's gifted, golden, genuine and glorious. It is a lower-case god.… Continue

Blame the Kids: Crayon Vandalism!

Love how simple but effective this idea is. To remind employees that "Bring your kids to work day" was coming up, BBDO, an ad agency in New York, cut pieces of acetate, scribbled on them with crayon and then quietly stuck them on 500 of their employees' computers.

"Everyone in the company came into work to find their computers vandalized with crayon scribbles. To… Continue
