When it comes to creating spot-on tribute paintings to our favorite movies, few do it better than Massimo Carnevale. His brush stroke heavy images capture so much life and vibrant emotion that they seem to give these much loved scenes even more impact and sentiment than the original films themselves. How is it, for example, that you can take one glance from the Back to the Future series and create such a poignant moment out of one that was probably lost to most viewers? This is talent.

There are tons of great things out in the tech world right now that are free: social networking sites, productivity apps, games, and music sites are all jumping on the bandwagon.

I came across the work of Matt Andres purely by accident. I was cruising 8Tracks — a music site where you get to make your own mixes and upload whatever cover art you want — when I stumbled across his incredible profile.

When it comes to symbols representing the fabulous United Kingdom, few come close to the iconic and bold Union Jack. This red, white and blue flag is a symbol and source of national pride, and a beautifully designed one at that. Now in a clever act of visual trickery, students Joseph Egan and Hunter Thomson have recreated the symbol in anamorphic form, only appearing as its whole from one perfect vantage point.

Sometimes all it takes for us to have that ‘aha’ moment, that revelatory kernel of truth that wakes us up and sends us in the right direction, is one sentence spoken clearly and concisely. These posters do just that, capturing some of the wisdom written by the great philosophers that have gone before us, those who explored the far boundaries of human understanding and wisdom. The bold, black and white typography against a newsprint like halftone, is just the right look for such truthful statements strongly said. [Read more...]

It’s no secret that Americans spend quite a bit of time at their desk while they’re at work, but did you realize that it’s close to roughly a third of their entire time spent there? Exercise is a vital and important aspect of a healthy lifestyle and anything you can do to keep yourself fit will help you out in the long run. Just because you’re in a cubicle and not out on the field or court doesn’t mean there still aren’t things you can do at work to stay fit. [Read more...]
