Oded Ezer's Face Type



Oded Ezer's Face Type is a new project influenced by the visual possibilities of Skype's video conferencing and social networks. Each letter of "Face Type" was designed by an individual from a different country, and was photographed together with it's creator, using the Skype application's print screen function. This method was used to create two of Ezer's recent works: A magazine double spread, stating "Every improvement in communication makes the truth less visible", commissioned by the prestigious Print Magazine's August 2010 issue, and a poster for this year's famous Krakow Jewish Festival, Poland.

Future

We don't know about future, do we?  But what do you think about future?  Good? Bad?
Difficult to get an answer right?  This question (in fact all questions) should be answered within a context.  Who are we talking to?  What are we talking about? Why are we talking?  and so on... Yes, that's it!
So if I ask you to plan your future, what will you say?  
Likely the answer will be towards a positive side, agree? 
That's all I want to say.

Apple's Appvertising Takes Off (via brandchannel)

Apple's Appvertising Takes Off (via brandchannel)


Forward

"The design school is like a moving train which takes you from one destination to another. Life inside the train is interesting, fulfilling, challenging and yet expensive. But on the other hand, it is composed of thousands of hardwork, failures, redo works, humiliations and working overnights - but we can enjoy the scenery through the window.

During the journey, I have seen good and bad design behaviours, achievements and failures. Sometimes it is full of joys, sometimes it is full of worries. But I do appreciate the effort that all of you have made and I share all the wonderful experiences that are full of inspirations.

Now that you are bound to take off.

Be ready pals, next stop is the ever challenging, rewarding and sometimes discouraging battlefield of the graphics business.

Don't forget to bring your portfolios with you, and MIND THE PLATFORM GAP, PLEASE."

- just found that I have written these words for my graduate students exactly 20 years ago. Looking back, foresight or hindsight, might be worthy to share on this last day of our graduation show.

What if...

What would you do if you arrive office early in the morning and found out there was no electricity? - perfect! no light, no air con.  Stay in, pretending nothing has happened and hoping everything will be back to normal? - no way, I can't stand the heat and it's bloody suffocating.  Or stay away, take an exploratory walk and bump into your colleagues in other offices? - if you are lucky - but be sure you don't make them feel like you are checking on them.

What if you are inside an elevator (when there is no electricity)?
What if you are at the end of writing a long email?
What if you are at a 360 turn on a roller-coaster?
What if you are on an underground train?
What if these really happen to you?

Are you joking?

Couldn't imagine such playful idea in HK - Uncomfortable if not radical?  Irrelevant if not disgusting?

Talking about attention, Robben was surely the attention seeking star (or actor?) who successfully caused a red card to the Brazilian in the World Cup today.

Starry Starry Night

Tonight is a starry night.  I can see many stars twinkling in the sky.
What a beautiful picture as if the stars were talking and trying to catch our eyes.  If they were advertising messages, what can they do to catch our attention? - Just a thought!
