Redesigning the Ketchup Packet

February 5, 2010

For the first time in 42 years, ketchup packets get a redesign that is possibly even better than the classic version. The new design has dual fuctionality: you can peel and dip or rip and squeeze. Looks to me like less mess and less waste so good job on that Heinz!

Life in a “Blob”

January 12, 2010

Meet the Blob VB3 designed by dmvA. It took 18 months to build but, wow, it’s stunning! This small space is an ultra efficient storage space. If you look closely, the bed is even hidden in what seems to be shelving. I really like how easily it can be moved around and how many uses you could make of this thing. It sure would make for an incredible office in the summer – just open it all up and let in the sun!

Redesigning the Boarding Pass

January 7, 2010

I really enjoyed the Boarding Pass/Fail article over at ISO50 posted by Alex. I just wanted to pass along the interest but if you care to learn more about it go read their article on it or check out the main source (below). Basically, Tyler Thompson has brought to everyones attention the inefficient design of the boarding pass. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a well designed keepsake from your trip? Check out Tyler’s redesign. You can also contribute!

January 4, 2010

Check out this collection of vintage graphics – endless inspiration.

Within that collection I found these very intriguing characters. I have no idea where they are from but they are super interesting. Meet La Famille Ramona! I’ve been trying to figure out which collection to post but there is no way to choose. Just go there and see the gold mine.

So it’s 2010…

January 4, 2010

In the spirit of the new year, I figure I should start with a relative post. I came across this handy 2010 resolution generator. So if you are like many and can’t figure one out for yourself – try this one. I’ve already made many of my own but some relate directly to the one below. I’ll change my own world at the very least. Enjoy 2010, readers.
