I saw the sign

God, The Universe, or The MTA sent me a sign… I have to admit, it worked. Just reading the word “optimism” made me feel better already. It’s NOT cool to have your Blackberry and iPod stolen by three teenage bitches on the week of your birthday, and then have your thesis presentation moved up 6 […]

What Design Can Do For YOU:

In designer Cardon Webb‘s personal project, cleverly called “Cardon Copy,” he redesigns found fliers, redistributes them in their original environment and asks questions like: How does this affect the message?

Mario Hugo

Talk about killed ideas. I ran across this post at BOOOOOOOM! today, featuring some of Hugo’s unused artwork for Beck’s “Modern Guilt.” His work is absolutely amazing. I’m so happy I bought my ticket for his AIGA Small Talk already! Check out Mario Hugo’s incredible portfolio.
