Insights from Red Peak – always eye opening

DESIGN

  • A video celebrating the title designs of the master, Saul Bass. http://bit.ly/vUyfB8
  • Go back to a time when graphic design was crafted by hand and visual experimentation was used to represent invisible processes. http://bit.ly/tSG1DV
  • Check out the profile of Red Peak’s very own Chief Creative Officer Stewart Devlin in The Disciples of Design. http://bit.ly/vwtTF7
  • A reinvented coffee cup does away with plastic lids in favor of one you fold over yourself http://bit.ly/sMMCgs


TRAVEL / HOSPITALITY

  • For those with a healthy travel budget feast your eyes on Wallpaper* Magazine’s Best Business Hotels of 2011. http://bit.ly/uwAV4c


JUST BECAUSE

  • The most awe-inspiring thing you’ll see all day. Real time lapse photos taken from the Intl Space Station from Aug to Oct. http://vimeo.com/32001208
  • Here’s what a single day of Flickr uploads looks like when printed http://bit.ly/vz1jaH


ARCHITECTURE

  • This is a border customs checkpoint, it needs to be seen to be believed… Looks like we’re going for a trip to Georgia/Turkey. http://bit.ly/rG7ymL


PROMOTION

  • Major controversy! “While global love is still a utopia, albeit a worthy one, the  invitation ‘not to hate’, to combat the ‘culture of hatred’, is an ambitious but realistic objective” says Alessandro Benetton. Looks like Benetton is seeking sales in the heritage left by Oliviero Toscani. http://huff.to/vQG74K
  • A flash mob with a real purpose. Performers gathered in Covent Garden to create the shape of a giant hand to raise awareness of Dupuytren’s Disease, a progressive and debilitating hand condition. http://bit.ly/tJoIDD
  • Lay’s proves it has nothing to hide with this potato chip vending machine. Insert potatoes and out comes fresh chips. http://bit.ly/vqAww8
  • Ads in report cards, a surprisingly good idea to generate revenue for public schools. http://bit.ly/tLnnhM
