Since syndication, flipping channels between twttr lnkdin fcbk has become boringly pointless, same thing on every channel.
Heard a rumor that Merck are bringing back the single mumps vaccine, seems like public pressure is working. #nommr
So happy that HBO GO brand seems to be working for HBO. It was a tough naming assignment. Virgilio’s identity thoughts for how it could grow were simply inspired. #persistencepaidoff
Rectalinear geometric forms, with regimented gridded and tabulated typography reinforce a machine like order. Minimal use of strong graphic color is reminiscent of technical components. Thin consistent line weights evoke engineering drawings. A smart, calculated layout with minimalistic photography imposes order on the viewer. Controlled monospaced fonts and informative data visualization...
Powerful use of graphic elements and bold typography indicate confidence. Restatement and repitiion of angular forms and patterns articulate rythym and momentum. Images in motion and action are lively and energetic and proove motivation. Dark ground with a bright color pallette tending toward the flurescent transfer energy to the viewers eye. Dynamic layout, using solid forms with great...
The dimensional, non geometric, crafted forms of cursive typography emphasize the intervention of the human hand. Natural, organic materials in combination with a more tonal color pallette denote warmth and authenticity. Candid images that break the construct of the frame invite the viewer into the honesty and intergrity of real people. Narrative, editorial like composition alongside explanatory...
The clean and simple organization of form and content on a predominantly light ground indicates a systematized mind and emphasizes a clarity in communication. Classical typography and a subtle use of monochromatic color reinforces restraint. A clear hierachy in layout and logical reading order underscores overall professionalism.
SXSWi Panel picker, 'Brands as Patterns' please... →
I just posted up the panel submission for SXSW 2012, building on brands as patterns. The speakers will be myself, Greg Johnson from Hewlett Packard, Steve Pearce from Skype, Peter Sims who wrote the amazing book ‘Little Bets’ and Walter Werwoza from Musikvergnuegen.

Apple need to launch vending machines in the lobby of large corporations. A ‘dongle store’ to assist in the babel like dystopia of hardware presentation formats.
rather wonderfully put - Russell Brand #ukriots
Who should our youth learn from? The police who are on the payroll of the newspapers? The government who are on the payroll of the corporations. The newspapers who fabricate the stories? Are we not all smashing and grabbing? #ukriots
When the method of production is also in the hands of the user, we will return to an age of a design minded consumer. Because understanding what it takes to make something well is to become a purveyor of quality. #micromanufacturing
Anger is an energy. - Lydon. Let off steam, or push for change? #londonriots
It’s too easy to define yourself by what you hate. Anti-Capitalism, Anti-Consumerism, Anti-Police. It’s less easy to define yourself by what you believe in. #londonriots
Revolutionaries used to have an anthem, a battle cry. Mods had Ska, Anarchists Punk, hippies chose folk. Tell me, what do you have? #londonriots
I’ve never really understood toilets next to bathtubs, they seem pretty diametric use cases.

A disaffected youth looting a flat screen TV, is like a slave stealing his chains. #londonriots
If you want to succeed don’t try and be good, try and be calm. This is the only lesson.
Even in anarchy, our youth slavishly follow marketing, stealing only what they are meant to want. #ukriots
Some may say that the riots in The UK is just a contemporary example of the uprising of the British youth, just like punk, or the mods. But looting flat screen TV’s and Sneakers is a perfect example of how hapless and sheep like our youth has become. Even in anarchy, the youth follow marketing, stealing only what they are meant to want.

Papa I feel purple. Really? I respond. Why? Well, Blue is too cold, and Red is too Hot. - Beautiful Anouk

I miss Tibor, I’m beginning to doubt the existence of conceptual design or wit, when did design become so dry?
Some days, the world is just a blur of systematic design and functional language in which stories or feelings get lost.
If belief is about the why, not just the what or how, then stories that invoke emotion are our most important tool.
