Think inside the box

Just saw this today and thought it would be worthy to post it here.
Yes, why would you want to think outside the box?  What's the problem inside the box?
There's no problem to think inside the box and indeed we should answer these key questions before trying to be smart to sort of 'think outside of the box':

What are we doing?
How are we doing it?
why are we doing it?
How do we know if it's working?

MINI Cooper’s mainstreet marketing campaign thinks INSIDE the box

In what could possibly be described as 3D, ground-level advertising (we’re open to suggestions), Dutch agency Ubachswisbrun/JWT created this ‘visual piece’ to demonstrate the compact nature of the MINI. We’re always impressed by memorable marketing. But memorable marketing that also emphasises a product’s point of difference… that’s thinking outside the box (or ‘in the box’, as the case may be).

可吃紙面世 50口味任揀 台灣紙廠發明 農曆新年後發售

(明報)2010年1月5日 星期二 05:05
【明報專訊】「紙」除了用於書寫,還可以用來吃!台灣南投縣埔里鎮一間紙廠有新發明,老闆夫婦合力研究出以瓜果蔬菜及植物製成的可食用紙張,並計劃農曆新年後完成「紙愛台灣•榮耀100(百種可吃的紙)」的目標,將「可吃紙」推出市面。

台灣《聯合報》報道,發明「可吃紙」的是埔里鎮廣興紙寮,目前「可吃紙」計劃已被納入台灣文建會文化創意產業項目。除了發明各類口味的紙,紙寮還和埔里一家餐廳合作,開發紙面條、紙飯團、火鍋湯底紙和乾煎肉紙等「紙料理」。

與餐廳合作開發「紙料理」

「手工紙如果再局限在書法繪畫用紙,一定走入死胡同。」做了幾十年人工手抄紙的廣興紙寮老闆黃煥彰說,17年前廣興開始轉型成觀光工廠時,埔里還有20多家手工紙廠,現在只剩6家。

過去多年,廣興一路從開發甘蔗紙、茭白筍紙連結文化創意產業概念,令手工紙多了包裝、工藝用途,現在更找到可以吃的「新路」。

黃煥彰說,他和妻子吳淑麗嘗試用各種植物纖維做紙,從煮漿抄紙到烘焙成紙的過程,堅持自然、無污染。過去曾將危害生態的薇甘菊變成紙燈罩、CD套,現在最開心的則是做出「可吃紙」。

吳淑麗說,為了研發百種可吃手工紙,她成了埔里黃昏街市最受歡迎的買家,因為她總是青菜、蔬果不分老嫩買下一大堆,回家煮漿造紙。家中晚餐時曾擺了整桌「菜瓜布」湯,後來才發現絲瓜皮最適合做手工紙。

黃煥彰說,過去手工造紙要求純潔、白淨,製紙過程都加入梳打水等漂白劑,堅持不添加任何化學劑後,雙手抄出一張張散發自然植物香味的純樸新紙,還能滿足味蕾吃下肚。

蔬果植物製造 不含化學劑

目前廣興紙寮已開發出木耳、艾草、胡蘿蔔、秋葵、韭菜、茱萸、老薑、芋頭等多種口味,還有橙、秋葵、胡蘿蔔、辣椒混合紙。未來將開發的50種新紙也將全部能吃,包括茶葉紙、調味紙等。黃氏夫婦同聲說:「一定會很好玩!」

遲些可能還會有筆,墨之類什麼的...

好組成一套文房四寶啊...

這根本完全突破料理的形式了!!!!!

Illustrator watch 05 - Lars Leetaru

Another good one for your reference.

Illustrator watch 04 - Peter Hamlin

"I make things I "see" internally and externally to communicate layered perceptions and concepts. My work springs from an interest in our need for making meaning, driving forces and notions of progress, and our capacities to extend beyond practical function. Organic imagery, color, anthropomorphic shapes, Eastern and Western informed iconographies, technological figures and robotic appendages are aspects of compositions to evoke connotations, to challenge, and ask questions. These forms allow for various reads and the viewer can bring their own experience to the work for an individual interpretation."

Illustrator watch 03 - Nora Krug

See for yourself why her works are so different!

Happy New Year

Wow! It's 2010!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
