Sugru: The future of fixing Nov 19, 12, 2:35 p.m.
Just came across this amazing product. For those of you who like to fiddle around with gadgets and fixing everyday life objects. This is for you :)
"sugru is the exciting new self-setting rubber that can be formed by hand. It moulds like play-dough, bonds to almost anything and turns into a strong, flexible silicone rubber overnight.
Developed by a team of product designers and material scientists, sugru's patented technology is unique in its combination of hand-formability, self-adhesion and flexibility when cured. It feels like modelling clay, and it's that easy to use too. Once cured, its durable properties mean it's comfortable in extreme environments from the dishwasher to the ocean in Antarctica."

Outrage Over The Photographs Of The United States Olympic Team Jul 2, 12, 12:08 a.m.
So photographers and graphic designers are much alike. they both like to gang up and tell people how much they suck. LOL
but seriously. the quality of the photos look like they're done by students. in fact, i think some students can do even better.
how do i speak english with client?! May 7, 12, 6:30 p.m.
Apparently my client doesn't understand i can not in any way get the exact colour if they don't give me PMS name, Hex number or CMYK Value. simply sending me a scanned photo of their old business card does not give me enough information to get the exact colour! And every monitors displays colour differently! what i see and what you see will never be the same! give me the god damn original file already!
how do you speak that in english?
Coca-Cola Hugging Machine Apr 20, 12, 11:15 p.m.
oh... i'd be humping that machine allll day.
"A new Coca-Cola vending machine at the National University of Singapore dispenses free cans in exchange for hugs.
Instead of the usual logo, the words ‘Hug Me’ is written across the machine’s front in the iconic red and white.
The ‘Hug Machine’ is programmed to dispense a can of Coke when a person wraps their arms around it—and no, it simply doesn’t accept money!
It is part of a new campaign by Ogilvy & Mather to spread some love and well, Coke.
"Whether you were hugging the machine or experiencing the event online, our goal was the same—to put a smile on your face and share that emotional connection," Coca-Cola Company spokesman Leonardo O’Grady said in a press release.
"Reactions were amazing... people really had fun with it and at one point we had four to five people hugging the machine at the same time as well as each other!"
The company plans to install more of such machines across Asia in the coming months."
Seattle woman marries lesbian building. Feb 17, 12, 5:15 p.m.
A Seattle woman recently exchanged one-sided wedding vows with an abandoned warehouse building that is set to be demolished to make way for a new apartment building.
In December, Babylonia Aivaz and 16 friends occupied the warehouse, located on 10th and Union streets, to protest the planned development of an apartment complex on the site.
"Gentrification is happening," Aivaz said. "It's a serious issue that affects poor people and especially people of color and this is just the beginning of the fight."
Calling it a "gay marriage," Aivaz was asked by the attending minister if she would "love and cherish and protect this warehouse."
Aivaz reportedly responded in verse, quoting the Cat Power song "Sea of Love."
"Come with me my love, to the sea, the sea of love. I want to tell you how much I love you."
She then added her own verses:
"Do you remember when we met? I cleaned your rooms and washed your floors, built community, opened some doors. You changed my life. I'll never forget the day we met. I'll cherish your community sprit until the day I die."
After the ceremony, a large banner reading, "I Do" was hung outside the building as the estimated 50 attendees sang, "Lean on Me." Nonetheless, demolition on the building began ahead of schedule, starting last Friday.
Aivaz caused some unintended controversy with her ceremony. A pair of protestors showed up to the event, objecting to her use of the term "gay marriage" because it weakens the fight to legal same-sex marriage in the state.
"With the delicate nature of Washington state and the attempt to legalize gay marriage, I find her saying it's a gay marriage disrespectful," Phoenix Lopez told KOMO.
"Her saying it's a gay marriage sets the community back with Christians and politicians and gives them a chance to say, 'See, we told you, they're going to want to marry everything if we give them the opportunity,'" added fellow protestor Johnny McCollum-Blair. "Having compassion against something you love, I understand, but to call it a gay union is irresponsible."

Need a Colour Management Wizerd! Sep 18, 11, 7:18 p.m.
Ran into a bit problem trying to print my own photograph. hope somebody here and help me out.
I tried to print a Photo of my own which is mostly B/W with selected area in red. On my Epson SP1400. Some how print a hint of green in some black colour area. Even after i desaturated the heck out of that area.
The original colour space of the photo is in sRGB IEC 61966-2.1. I converted it to Epson 1400 1410 UPGP in photoshop because that's the colour profile of the paper suggested by the printer. Then use the Print Menu I let photoshop manage colour. Printing with Epson 1400 1410 UPGP as the printer profile. Paper as Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy.
Is there any mistake with my process? or is it just the printer?
Brace Herself (art auction) Sep 1, 11, 2:32 p.m.
Leia. one of my dear friend, a graphic design baby who I've been helping to become a graphic designer. She has lived her life with sever pain on her back for the last ten years because she has scoliosis. It means that her spine is twisted or crooked. So being her friend we decided to sell all of our art work to rais money to buy her a back brace which costs $3500 dollars. The brace will help making her life easier and prevent further spine degeneration. I'm not here to ask you to donate but ask you to please take a look to see if there is any artwork you like and hopefully bit on it.
For folks who live in Vancouver BC you can go to Cafe Deux Soleils (located on commercial drive) to check out some of the art work we have hang on the wall till sep 18.
All biddings are done on the blog. Auction ends by the end of September.
Thx! Group hug! Or nvm...
