Move it

From a digital perspective, we have witness quite a hand full of such ads. These ideas somehow never fail to make me smile. I actually like the effort of bringing something to live especially when it is done using simple easy approaches. A creative execution from BBR Saatchi, Israel. We see how Ford Explorer can easily communicate its innovation in 3 very interactive print to digital execution. Always good to have more of these ads around isnt it?

Wolverine

I couldn’t believe my eyes upon seeing this. I told myself this cant be true. A Wolverine-themed vehicle made by a Korean brand? Regardless, check out this collaborated piece with Fox in their effort to promote their Blu-Ray version of X-Men: Days of Future Past. As much as most fans are concerned, is this even legit? I mean there could be other versions of superhero vehicles to be inspired. They even named it the Kia Sorento Wolverine. But seriously, check out those claws. Seem like washing the vehicle can be an extra claw eh? Now, can you imagine a Magneto or Cyclops inspired Kia?

Embrace art

Design and art continues to inspire us in terms of the underlying message it carries. At times we seem to take it completely for granted. Tom Watkins Anders created these alluring visuals for Body Shop. Inspired by Brasil, the artist depict fascinating patterns in the form of circles, brilliantly merging Body Shop’s logo in them. What we see are beautiful illustrations of birds, leaves, humans and other elements forming this intricate design. Kudos to Tom for such quality art work.

A case that bends

photo-main-2-640x0

This article from digitaltrends leaves me wondering if Kickstarter is starting to get diluted with weird projects, almost like a dumping ground of ideas. But this idea, a flexible casing for the notorious case for bending iPhones is one that intrigued me. At least we now have a solution for it? This new parody attempts to rectify the problem by being a flexible yet protective case to your phone. Bendifone, an accessory that seeks to protect your iPhone is started by Amberlee Donahue of Marietta. I love how she describes the Bendifone will bend together with your iPhone almost seamlessly.

Golden Pillow

In where I stay this would be the perfect example of what the locals would term “Golden Pillow”. The chinese community created a curry bun where dough stuffed with curry chicken would be baked to a crispy golden brown, packed with yummy chicken within. While this does look exactly like how the Chinese would envisaged, it is no ordinary Golden Pillow. Kyoto-based artist Yukiko Morita created her bread lamp out of her extreme love for bread and have this as an art piece. Displaying it in her room, the artist truly set an example of how love supersedes reality.  Calling it the Pampshade, bread lamps made up of real bread has been constructed using LED, batteries and a secret formula. Note she not only have the classic baguettes, she also developed croissants and many other different bread loaves. The brilliant execution comprises of a layer of resin coating to prevent the bread from moulding or rotting. Amazing work for the 2014 Tokyo Design Week. Beautiful aren’t they?

Creative LEGO direction

Ha! Gotta love the styling and idea by Buenos Aires-based art director Alexandre Tissier. Apparently he has developed a series of interesting ads with the idea he conceived as fiction meets fiction. I love how he conceived the idea, merging heroes with other fun storylines. Interestingly, these combinations gave the message of creativity and building. Both of which, are symbolic to LEGO’s reputation for toy imaginations.
