One of my co-workers asked for our help in coming up with some examples of how to take still images to video. So my coworker Kim and I came up with a quick list. Thought it’d be nice to share with everyone looking to do the same thing.
I am not thrilled about the UAL and Continental merger. For one I have a deep love for Continental because of extensive reading and a true sense of what they’re about. So I was struck with mixed emotions at the corporate merger. But we shall see what happens next.
However their new logo leaves me NO mixed emotions: it’s garbage. The literal combining of the two logos and opting to keep the decidedly-older looking Continental over United’s recent update is just pure laziness and uncalled for in this age.
I have a feeling this was branding by committee to make everyone feel that it’s a merger. But it seems like two mobile homes tacked together with duct tape, plywood and leftover drywall nails. Instead they should’ve created an all-new logo, which would’ve reinvigorated the two companies instead.
I have been seeing adaptations of the “Keep calm and carry on” posters all over the city. According to Wikipedia, these were never produced. Instead their resurgence has been as recent as 10 years ago.
It seems a fitting mantra for me as a Buddhist and for everyone these increasingly unpredictable times. I admire its message but also the timelessness of the design and the typography. A quick search on the Interwebs reveals that P22′s Underground Pro is the closest font. Gorgeous.

Great ideas are made of these
Who am I to disagree!
Not quite the lyrics, but since school I’ve been a huge fan of IDEO. They have a labs section, which begs the question: why doesn’t everyone who’s a creative have a labs section? Check out their work and enjoy! Do you have a creative playground on the Interwebs?
This is a GORGEOUS example of information graphics. Very easy to read, but it’s important also to sort out exactly what you’re trying to say. In this case the author (in my opinion) is trying to tell us the rate of success and the type of mission, not necessarily the name (as that’s secondary but also present). Beautiful work, guys!
