Im sure girls are going to like this. I remember watching a TED talk where the speaker spoke of how our senses play a vital role in allowing the mind to register a splendid experience from one to the other. Designers have always been able to create visually appealing items but what about incorporating smell into these pretty little things? If you are into nice pretty confectionaries, the recent work from Firebox has a nice assortment of cute coin purses infused with lovely fragrances to intrigue your senses. With designs like donuts, macoroons and even candies, the smell factor has certainly beef up the idea to a whole new exciting level. Scents like strawberry, chocolate, mint and orange are some of the iconic scents that comes along with these lovely pursues. Certainly an interesting fashion item to have isn’t it? Check them out here.

Love indulging in sweet meringue and yummy confectionaries?Firebox has created a collection of coin purses that are infused with these delicious fragrances.

These scented zip-up coin purses are shaped like donuts and belgium waffles and they come in three flavored scents—original, strawberry and chocolate, while the macaron purses are packed with delightful scents of chocolate, mint, strawberry and orange.

Beautiful. Design design design. I love how these wonderfully designed postcards parade themselves in these compositions. Intrepid design directions give birth to well crafted creative work. Postcards has always been one of the most ideal platform for artists to work on. Have a look at these designs published by Princeton Architectural Press. The article was posted here.

Change bit by bit

This ad by Saatchi & Saatchi, Bucharest, Romania for United Way might seem like a very simple ad but I do feel the message is well conveyed and extremely impactful. Cutting down the layers of flashy details, going straight to the core of the message, the ad communicates the importance of changing lives. We see a sad old lady, a dirty little boy and a gritty looking man transforming in the videos. Their differences in appearance was well illustrated from the beginning to the end of the video. Clearly, what we see in our daily lives can be changed through the little actions we do. Donate generously.

 

Google Photo Sphere

While I have yet tried Google’s latest app release for iOS, i am pretty sure the Google Photo Sphere app is another thrilling innovation. And im right. It allows us to take really wide panoramic view and three-dimensional views through our phone. Frankly, I love how Google’s UI always have that snazzy minimalistic design packed with truck loads of exciting features. Not only does the camera now comes with the positioning tool, a dot that allows you to target frames, it’s objective is to complete the experience for generating a fantastic image. And of course, it allows you to post your picture onto Google Maps! Check out the Photo Sphere app.

A whole new level of projection

It is unlikely you would walk away unfazed after watching this video. Projection mapping on cars, buildings and surfaces had been widely adopted. However, projection recognition is something rather peculiar. Imagine the computer identifying your facial features, blends it nicely with the light, completely transforming your face into another shell for content projections. A real life CGI projection that traces and follows the movement of the surface it projects. This is absolutely mind-blowing. Check out Prosthetic Knowledge.

Throw it!

Like they say, reverse engineering in itself is a form of art that could yield potential results. In this case, it is literally art. Quite the opposite as compared to taking brilliantly cropped still images, Berlin photographer Nora Luther took on a series of photos with ingredients being thrown in the air, forming beautiful visuals. Calling her project ‘Recipes’, the photographer created the images of these food ingredients looking like they were ‘stopped’ in mid air. I actually think these were much more interesting than seeing plain tasty food nicely served. Nice idea.

Talking to me?

Always a big fan of outdoor activations, I enjoyed seeing how powerful ideas turn to life together with the amount of joy and laughter it elicits from people. What we have here is an interesting mirror that actually talks to people who passes by. Originated from Brazil, bread brand Nutrella created the ‘friendly mirror’ which aims to make your day by singing praises and talking. Creepy, some might say, but the tonality has simply made it a rather amusing experience.
