Last week I mentioned how I’m starting to post about the same themes week after week. Well this week for the Link Drop I’ve tried mixing it up a bit. There’s lots about eggs and circles. I’m not entirely sure how this happened, but when things flow whom I’m I to stop it from happening—maybe I was hungry as I was going though the sites…

 Tina Fey on Amy Poehler on branding now_1239321979344

Tina Fey on Amy Poehler on branding now
I think this quote is great: “Amy is funny because she doesn’t care what you think, but she does want to make you laugh. It’s a complicated and important combination.” If only we could all have the same attitude…

Tomorrow Museum » Archive » Video is Justice_1239322009317

Video is Justice
Lots to consider with this post—just proves that what’s released into the wild isn’t always what a person can expect.

Video reveals G20 police assault on Ian Tomlinson moments before he died | UK news | The Guardian_1239322032552

Video reveals G20 police assault on man who died
This is crazy, and it should be noted that the Guardian is doing some interesting stuff. Last week I posted about them using twitter; The Guardian @ G20 summit and protests in London

Switch to Energy Saving Bulbs with FF Dingbats 2.0 | The FontFeed_1239322069878

Switch to Energy Saving Bulbs with FF Dingbats 2.0
Cool idea to get colour into dingbats, plus the images are nice.

Too much (poorly designed) Information

Too much (poorly designed) Information?
Good breakdown of info design overthought. Maybe they should have stopped while they’re ahead? Good candidate for agile design?

Automatic Legends for Proportional Symbol Maps (Jenny)
Cool tool, I wonder if there’s some sort of magical/golden rule to these type of proportions.

 Kode9's "Black Sun" single came out today! You know it's the techn-00's when I'm waiting impatiently for almost trip hop._1239322109319

Kode9′s “Black Sun” single came out today! You know it’s the techn-00′s when I’m waiting impatiently for almost trip hop.
It’s been a while since I showed one of these diagrams—the colour spectrum is quite telling.

 The Fedrigoni Mountains_1239322120918

The Fedrigoni Mountains
I wish this was some sort of three dimensional diagram because it would rawk if it was.

Subway Station Buttons
The MTA should steal this idea and sell buttons for $2.50 a piece. That way New Yorkers using the subway wouldn’t be overcharged…

 toilet roll origami_1239322137526

toilet roll origami
Crazy idea—how does one come up with something like this? It would be cool to do some designs around this stuff.

Porno Circles | Design You Trust. World's Most Famous Social Inspiration._1239322200812

Porno Circles
This is hilarious, I wonder how many design students are going to try the same thing—and what will the reaction be from the design teacher? Shock in horror or utter disbelief in the geniusness of it…

 Circle_1239322212524

Circle
More info on the circle, good followup after the porno circles.

ZURB – Why a 24-hour Design Marathon Works_1239322225794

Why a 24-hour Design Marathon Works
Not too sure about the 24hr thing, but the Nine Tricks of the Designer’s Trade are pretty good to remember.

Can design save the newspaper

Can design save the newspaper?
This is a pretty good response to the TED video of the same name. It doesn’t really surprise me that a lot of designers think this, but seriously get an idea of the economics and understand the experience that people are interacting with to get their news. Showing a portfolio of pretty pictures for five minutes isn’t going to help and it just brings down the design profession.

 Peace Revolution poster (Monoscope)_1239322253411

Mattias Mackler: Peace Revolution poster
Love the execution of this poster.

THE J SCHATZ EGG BIRD HOUSE COLLECTION
If I had a backyard I’d get the yellow one. They should really limit the colours to white and yellow—much stronger concept left like that.

Mid-Century Modern Furniture Poster by J Provost
This would be nice to hang somewhere.

“traces of an imaginary affair”
Another “how did this person come up with this idea”, but it’s kind of funny if you’re into that kind of thing. The picture is perfect, ha.

Veuve Clicquot
Interesting design exercise with tying illustration into the package design.

If you’re a motion designer, you might be interested in checking this out.

I like this low–fi design solution.

credit card cutlery.
This seemed to fit with the above low–fi design concept above.

Effective CRM you won’t read about in Adweek
This is the stuff no one talks about (except for now), interesting observations to be read…

 the barbarian group_1239322432969

Happy 5th Birthday, Subservient Chicken
Great breakdown, wish more work that’s good would be written up in a format like this. Shows how the process evolved, people that worked on it and the final product.

KinoSport | Consciousness Raising in the Dairy Section_1239322442818

Consciousness Raising in the Dairy Section
Fitting post to end with—lots of info on eggs that I never really thought about before.
