If you’ve never done it before, it’s really easy to check whether that new name or tagline you came up with is already trademarked by some other genius. Just go to the US Patent & Trademark Office, click “Trademark” on the right, then “Search TM Database” in the drop-down. Choose “New User Form (Basic)” and type in the term you want to check on. The general rule is that you can have a duplicate name or tag, as long as it’s in a separate industry. Typically, you’ll have to get a trademark lawyer to solidify it and the price is around $1,500.
Free Spirit Spherescan be hung from the trees as shown or from any other solid objects like buildings or rock faces. A web of rope is connected to any strong points available. This replaces the foundation of a conventional building. A suspended tree house uses the forest for its foundation. The occupants have a vested interest in the health of the grove. The supporting web also mirrors our connectedness to our surroundings. Each sphere has four attachments on top and another four anchor points on the bottom. Each attachment is strong enough to carry the entire sphere and contents.
Let us start by saying we’re not the audience for this new commercial from Cactus for the ongoing Own Your C effort. But here’s our opinion anyway of this second generation versus the previous work that won best of show at Art Directors the other night.

Cactus collaborated on “Genie” with director Lena Beug and production company Untitled Films
Beug. Filmed at Del Pueblo Elementary School in Denver
It seems the artistic nature of Chris Cox doesn’t end with design and illustration. He’s also a talented fine artist as evidenced by the piece he sent us below – a reaction to his distaste for the war in Iraq. (Probably not suitable for a kid’s room, however.) Do you ever have time to sleep, dude?
We saw this nice piece of work for New Belgium via Cultivator in the Exhibit section of the Communication Arts Interactive Annual that just dropped. Hope CA’s exposure (and ours) brings Cultivator good things.
Happened upon this news over on Andy Bosselman’s blog this morning that CP+B will assume all responsibilities for Domino’s work immediately. We didn’t necessarily see the need for a change, as it seemed like the new batch of work for the pizza maker was hitting its stride of late. But what do we know.
