i am not surprised that there’s a website for this. respect. 🙂

warning:  this one may destroy your color vision for the next hour  or so:  oversaturated duckface with makeup overload!

“okay, honey, let’s sit down and have a nice little chat, ok?

sweetie, darling, your friends love you. they care about you. they think you’re gorgeous.

and they’re really fucking tired of you ruining all their pictures with this stupid goddamned face, mmmmkay? they sent us your pictures and asked us to bitchslap some sense into that pretty little head of yours. this is our best attempt.

we have no fucking idea if our message will make it through the layer of bronzer, but honey, we had to try.”


I just came across this post here. And I laughed my head off, so here you go, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the “Better Marriage Blanket”.


“So we’re just going to get right to the point with this post, because no graceful intro or set up can counterbalance the idea behind this new product. It’s called the “Better Marriage Blanket” and that’s only because calling it “The Fart Trapping Blanket” seems well… too obvious.”

“The Better Marriage Blanket retails between $29.99 and $59.99 (Twin-King) and is available in white and beige shades. It’s a comforter that’s constructed from the same military grade fabric used to protect against chemical weapons, so your Silent But Deadlies aren’t lethal to anyone else who happens to be sharing a bed with you.

The item isn’t yet available in stores, but you can order your own online and make sure to take a peek at the online informercial if you’re in the mood for an adolescent giggle.

You use the product like you would any comforter, the inner layer of “activated carbon fabric” keeps the smells at bay. Now if they just make underpants from the stuff, you’ll be set for night and day!

We don’t have any wise words to wrap this up, but the 7 year old in us would really like to point out their logo… just sayin’.”

I copied the comments from the original post. But, what a logo designer is supposed to do for this kind of product. 🙂 God, I hope I won’t be dealing with such stuff 10 years from now.

A Matter of Taste

May 15, 2010

FULVIO BONAVIA began his career as a graphic designer and illustrator of film posters. As a photographer, he brings his artistic and design sensibilities to each and every one of his pictures, doing all of the post production himself so that his photographs are infused with his vision from start to finish.


if these were what I was wearing, I’d be naked in a minute.

i would like to participate in this project. very very much.

“Droplets of rain on the window. Someone laughing. A busy traffic junction. Inspiration can come from anywhere and with Getty Images’ The Random Camera Project, conceptualized by Ogilvy RedCard Singapore, inspiration can be had through someone else’ eyes. Getty Images has, in recent years, expanded its product offering, to provide audio and video footage. Its brief to Ogilvy Redcard was to create a piece of direct mail that would highlight its wide product offering in a lively and interactive way. With 300 branded disposable cameras, Getty Images spread the word about the project and availability was on a first come, first served basis. Within two weeks, all the cameras were given out to the target audience of creative professionals in the media industry in three markets: Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong. The challenge to the target audience was to take pictures of anything and everything with the cameras before returning them to Getty Images who then processed the photos and in return, sent them someone else’s set of pictures. At the same time, all images were uploaded onto a website http://gimages-sea.com/random for public sharing and viewing, which is now live.”

Parallel World

February 26, 2010

Not quite like the smurfs living in the forest.

“I love the work of Ji Lee and I was excited to see a new project from him called Parallel World. It involves the construction of miniature versions of rooms (or “parallel worlds”) and placing them on ceilings. Ji Lee noticed that no one ever decorates their ceilings, so he thought it would be a great idea to try and do something with the neglected ceiling space.”
