A Creative yet Creepy Christmas Short

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

In the office, it can’t be said that we don’t like a creative Christmas movie. The fact that this one has a quick twist that reminds me of the Twilight Zone only adds to the delight. The short animation Alma is the first film directed by Rodrigo Blaas. Blaas, on a creative break from Pixar, has already won awards and mentions for this animated short, and when you watch it you’ll know why. We enjoyed this movie and thought you would to. (more…)

Nifty Vintage Cartoons

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

My parents recently gave me a family treasure of vintage cartoons. My mother’s father, Paul Dye, was not a professional artist, but was very creative. He attended The Landon Course of Cartooning, a Cartooning school by C.N. Landon. The cartoons are from 1926 and all the courses are typed out. 1926 was just at the end of the Golden Age of Illustration.

This is a great video poking fun at the vendor client relationship. I’ve experienced this first hand too many times. I had a good laugh at this.

The Comcast Experience

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

A couple of months ago we were in Philly visiting a friend. So we stopped by the new Comcast building that changed the Philadelphia Skyline. Our friend mentioned a giant LCD screen that they wanted to see.
That didn’t really perk my interest. However, when we waled in to the room we were blown away. When we first came into the center, we didn’t know what we were supposed to look at. It was a nice reception area and it had a nice image of outer space on the wall. But then the entire wall changed. The wall was a huge screen! There were men climbing up the wall, windows opening on the wall, acrobatics and much more. If you are in the area, it’s certainly worth a look. It’s the most entertaining corporate office reception room I’ve ever been in. This is a great new way to incorporate art and entertainment into these buildings.

If you are serious about design, this may in fact make you hurl.
