Under the Weather

I am feeling extremely under the weather this week. One thing that makes me feel better... pictures of cute animals. Cheesy? Maybe.... but I would be willing to bet you all agree with me.

Video Tuesday

Yes, I know... more Adele. I can't help it! I could listen to this girl all day. What I love about this video [aside from her doing a great cover of Cheryl Cole's Promise This] is that you get a glimpse into her great personality. If you'd like an even bigger Adele fix click here to listen to her covering Brandi Carlile's Hiding my Heart.

How amazing is this illustration style? It is the work of Canadian born John Klassen.

Layer Mayor

This is a fantastic website for any designer out there in need of a little reference when designing web sites. Humorous but so true [and helpful!]

Very pretty packaging for a line of fragrances at Anthropologie. The inspiration came from vintage science books.

Help Japan

It's pretty incredible to see designers and crafters using their talent to raise funds to help Japan in the wake of the disastrous earthquake that occurred one week ago. Designer James White of Signalnoise designed the poster below and all profits will go to Japanese Disaster Relief. To donate directly to the Canadian Red Cross click here.

I am Right Brain

There are so many left brain vs right brain campaigns out there but these may be my favourite to date. Executed beautifully, they are print ads for Mercedes Benz.

National Geographic has a new series in the works called How Hard Can It Be? One of their projects was to re-create Mr. Frederickson's house from the movie Up! More than 300 helium-filled balloons were able to raise the house to about 10,000 feet for an hour!
