“You don’t have to do it for the glory. You don’t have to do it to be famous. You don’t have to do it for the boys.” There isn’t, it turns out, a right way to do any of it at all. All you need—that’s right, you guessed it, kids—is to “Just Do It.

World-class 15 second insurance ad

German actor Til Schweiger with daughter Emma Schwaiger in a well executed 15 sec. tv ad. The title was coined by my protestant friend Markus from New York, which I thought would nicely fit the ad. If you paid attention, the clip starts with the girl banging the car door at a post without much harm to the car while the father gets the job done by paying no attention to traffic when opening his door.

Every olympic logo rated by design legend Milton Glaser

Olympic logo design through the ages via Creative Market

 

 

Munich – Summer 1972

Munich – Summer 1972

 

This graphic icon eliminates all the historical references of the Olympics, most notably the rings [when the icon is used alone, which it often was]. It is a powerful abstraction, but could be used for almost any event. Because it seems unfocused on expressing the Olympics it’s hard to relate its effectiveness.

Sapporo – Winter 1972

Sapporo – Winter 1972

 

All the visual elements are put together in a clear and convincing layout. The stylized snowflake design adds distinction because it deviates from the other familiar elements of Olympic communications.

Berlin – Summer Olympics 1936

Berlin – Summer Olympics 1936

 

Strange and lacking focus. The Olympic rings become subordinated to the eagle and bell forms. The spirit of the Olympics is totally absent.

Rio – Summer 2016

Rio – Summer 2016

 

A presentation that looks fresh and contemporary. The athletes joining hands at the top are executed in a way that works well with the other elements. It feels like something new.

A pointer to the lost infrastructure of social media

August 15th, 2016

More than a decade ago, the earliest era of blogging provided a set of separate but related technologies that helped the nascent form thrive. Today, most have faded away and been forgotten, but new incarnations of these features could still be valuable.

 

 

lost infrastructure
As social networks grew in popularity and influence, the old decentralized blogosphere fell apart and those early services consolidated, leaving all the power in the hands of a few private companies. That’s left publishers and independent voices even more vulnerable to the control points of a few social networks and search engines.
