New York City’s Rockefeller Center today was adorned with a slew of gigantic eggs designed by some of the world’s most renowned artists and designers, including Jeff Koons, Diane von Furstenberg, Curtis Kulig, Nathan Sawaya and Zaha Hadid, among others.



The city wide monster hunt was organised by Saatchi & Saatchi as a reflection of their DNA and includes an app to help track the eggs among the five boroughs.

It was downloaded 27,000 times and it generated 22,000 registered users, who “collected” 370,000 eggs. The eggs will be auctioned of by Sotheby’s on April 22 and online via Paddle8 to benefit Elephant Family and School in Studio.

Currently, Jeff Koons’ Egg leads the pack with a whopping bid of $350,000.

Wikipedia in the 21. Century

Salomon Aurélien's new Wikipedia design, Martinique example.




Wikipedia’s designers are hard at work to bring their website aesthetic into the 21. Century.

Since the successful introduction of Pinterest, it’s aesthetic and simple handling, and the migration of users to mobile, world wide redesign is booming.

High ranking blogs are taking on the aesthetics of classic magazines and websites are making a more straight forward impression with radically simplified, thumb situating design. Bigger, readable copy, more white space, bigger finger-ready buttons…

Salomon Aurélien, a UX designer with no affiliation with the organization, can do whatever he likes. His concept for a new Wikipedia is eye-catching and packed with good ideas. Most importantly, it still operates largely like the Wikipedia we all know and (admit it) love. But there’s a problem: It can’t possibly work.

An admirable effort and best practice even so that Wikipedia’s designers should take a close look at and provide a a solution for.

No gimmicks, distraction through animations, sound effect, over burdening colors or other nerve wracking swizzle, to entertain the occasional visitor at the cost of serious users and subscribers to whom any of this makes the site suck and unbearable to use on a daily basis.

FastCompany’s Mark Wilson explains why the design won’t work.

In-house designers may discover the challenge and their mission in finding solutions to the faults, Wilson describes, and take on the speed of the 21. Century with a responsive system for Wikipedia.

But they need the consensus of the entire (and often wrong) Wikipedia community to make changes to Wikipedia’s 32 million+ pages.

Food is connected to nearly everything we do
and everything we eat was grown by someone somewhere
yet from farm to fork we are disconnect from our food like never before
and while its the biggest thing we do
there is plenty of room for improvement
fortunately improvement is something we are especially good at
