Theresa Christy of Otis Elevator: Making Elevators Go | Creating – WSJ.com


A really interesting article on elevators/lifts. I would have assumed the personal space issue would have been reversed, ie that more would be required in Asia. Another problem: How many people fit in an elevator? In Asia, more people will board a car than in Europe or New York, Ms. Christy says; Westerners prefer more […]

David Beckham’s Latest H&M Ads: Less Skin, More Porn ‘Stache | Adweek


When you bring back David Beckham in all his Adonis-like glory—that would be his tighty-whities—I must give credit where it’s due. You previously launched his underwear line with similar black-and-white ads of his chiseled-from-granite physique. Why mess with perfection? You even bought him a Super Bowl spot. Victory dance!

I’ve always wondered about the future


Josh Sanburn then goes and sums it up in a great article for Time. Somehow they all decided, ‘All right, that’s enough. From now on, this is going to be our outfit: one-piece silver jumpsuit with a V-stripe on the chest and boots. That’s it. We’re going to start visiting other planets and we want […]

Apple Adverts have definitely improved with time


Okay so everyone is talking about the iPhone4 FaceTime commercials and the Matt Damon look-a-like at the moment but by far my favourite adverts are still for actual Macintosh computers. I still own a G4 Cube and it is beautiful if not especially well powered now. It’s great as an iTunes media share though as […]

Blast from the past


Last week I went to Earls Court which used to be the major stomping ground in London before Soho became gentrified and got more bars than brothels. I went for a drink at the Colherne. Okay so it’s not been the Colherne for ages and is now a trendy bar called the Pembroke but to […]
