Are you kidding me!? This packaging absolutely blows me away. Please take a look at my Eleven Magazine post, which goes much further in depth about the sneakers. It’s a simply amazing approach to personalizing a classic sneaker (produced by Concepts).

Ran across this image on Flickr and was thrilled to see a Brazilian McDonald’s menu that was designed for the previous World Cup with a handful of clever little illustrations.

          Do yourself a favor and crank the volume on your unit. The audio and motion graphics match so perfectly in this clip, it’s quite mesmerizing.

          You can check out other experimental videos from Klipp og Lim (design and communication agency located in Trondheim, Norway), on their blog along with other interesting blog posts.

          Dustin Humphrey aka D Hump is considered one of the surf-world’s “most forward thinking photographers,” and the work he’s done for Insight51 is absolutely incredible. To understand a little more about the series entitled Dopamine, shot by Humphrey, be sure to take a look at PhotoShelter’s review of the work.
