As awesome as it may seem to live in outer space or far flung universes, as depicted by Hollywood sci-fi movies, do we really want to wreck our planet to the point where it becomes inhabitable? Of course not! As always it’s the small things that really count. Check out the link below ‘37 months and counting…’ sent by Vish to see what you can do to keep this planet clean and green.

I love creative advertising for food. For example the fun posters from Pret A Manger shows different types of fruit and vegetable assembled together in various shapes, such as bunnies, kettles, bowling pins etc. It’s such a nice way to showcase not only the freshness of their products, but also their sense of humour. “Broccoli’s Extreme Makeover”, a link sent by Robbie this week, explores how Ad agency, Victors & Spoils, have created a great campaign about Broccoli. Enjoy!

Dewar’s experiment in this breath-taking 3-B “printing” has taken 3-D printing to a whole new level. Sometimes, creativity is not only about using cutting edge technology, but also about the willingness to present and execute a seemingly crazy idea. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Enjoy the inspiring links below and have a great weekend!

Progress By Playing

It’s not often artists are allowed to experiment with expensive processes, probably because artists play, and playing doesn’t give a good a return on investment as say rapid prototyping for mass production would. But a research and development consultancy based in Cardiff have shown that allowing people to ‘play’ with these technologies can help open up new processes even for designers who have been using these tools for years.

The studio link-senders have been quite busy this week, and we’ve certainly got a nice eclectic mix for you. Felix’s link on the Millennials generation is a very interesting read. Supposedly, the people who were born between 1980 – 2000 are the most narcisstic, selfish and shallow generation yet. But they’re also the generation that will save us all. Enjoy!
