Friday Design: Booze, kids, and cutlery
- Urging responsible driving, Saab illustrates the effects of alcohol on one’s attentiveness. Working towards the same objective, Guiness tries blurred beverages & scrambled type.
- Check out Jamie Wieck’s "Decisions, Decisions" flowchart, derived from his hatred of restaurant rules. [Via] Jamie has also made a super-cool business card that blooms. Jung von Matt has created something similar, a b-card for a landscape architecture firm that blooms into a little garden. [Via]
- Chronically short on utensils? Consider carrying punch-out cutlery as a business card. [Via] See also lockpicks as business card.
- Speaking of business cards, Creative Bits hosts very cool examples; see also this collection on Flickr. I dig Scott Ott’s creation, and I’m glad to see the Chopping Block get a nod. (Their collateral includes "Chop Sticks," stickers useful for adding a nicely chopped notch to just about any surface.) [Via]
- Cookiemag features options for commissioning interesting portraits of kids. [Via]
- Photoshop user researcher Julie Baher spoke in an AIGA conference in Nashville a couple of weeks ago & says a highlight of the trip was Hatch Show Prints gallery. These guys have been kicking out the letterpress jams since 1879.
