  • Five Black Bins

    / Comments (0)

    Five Black Bins brings together five Cape Town design studios to redesign five garbage bins in Woodstock, Cape Town. The urban design project was conceptualised and curated by non-traditional agency, Cow.

    Five random addresses in Woodstock were selected. Designers were briefed to use the bin as a canvas but to take into consideration the context of its surroundings as well. Am I Collective, Cow, Kronk, The President and Room 13 were the five agencies that got involved.

    Once the designs were completed, bespoke vinyls were printed. The selected bins were abducted, the vinyls applied and the transformed bins were returned to their homes.

  • Mac vs. PC on NYTimes.com

    There’s another intrusive Mac banner on The New York Times today. In the past, they’ve only been up for one day. If you miss the real thing, the YouTube video below will give you the idea. Why aren’t more brands doing this?

  • Super Collider Crisis: A Mere Coincidence Or A Monster Publicity Stunt?

    / Comments (1)

    If you’ve been in any way exposed to the news media in the past few days, you have undoubtably heard about the big stink over the Large Hadron Collider in France. But not a single article or TV/radio story we have seen has made the connection to the work of Douglas Preston. So who is Preston? The author of the book Blasphemy a wonderfully twisted piece of fiction published early in 2008.

    Once you read this story description, taken verbatim from his website, and suddenly the plausibility of this being the most well coordinated publicity stunt for a book signing EVER becomes a strong possibility. Remember, you read it here first.

    The world’s biggest supercollider, locked in an Arizona mountain, was built to reveal the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself.

    The Torus is the most expensive machine ever created by humankind, run by the world’s most powerful supercomputer. It is the brainchild of Nobel Laureate Gregory North Hazelius. Will the Torus divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is the Torus a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of Heaven?
