Yes Sir and Man Made announce social popup barber shop.

Pop-up stores are so old hat by now they're hardly worth a mention, but at least this one serves an actual purpose. This coming September, British Men's online groomer shop Yes Sir! and London brick-and-mortar grooming shop Man Made are making a pop-up shop where your shave and a haircut cost you nothing more than a tweet with a hashtag or instagram photo. Nice way to get the punters to try out both stylist and product alike.

Stefan Sagmeister says you’re not a storyteller, calls you mean names

So, I’m a sucker for a good taking to task as much as the next guy, but let’s be honest, calling people fuckheads and crapping on their vision of their life isn’t going to endear you to anyone, at least not people whose opinion you should care about.

Stop churning out the Selfie hashtag idea: it's not original and was never any good.

Listen up, brands and social media people, there's one idea so over-used in advertising today that it has its own tumblr Badland site. You see, Your Selfie Idea is Not Original, and that selfie idea is trotted out at least once a day in the ad-world, and no matter what brand signs off on it, the campaign is rubbish.

It's blacker than black, it's Vantablack

Back in 2004 we declared I'm wearing black until I find something darker, and now there's something darker. Finally. We're needing to mix up the wardrobe.

AirBnB rebrand is bollocks. AirBnB revamps their logo for (ahem) a sexier image.

AirBnB launched a new design today, complete with a new logo. The "Bélo" logo, which it's called internally, is an upper-case A, but people are already snickering about it looking like labia or a scrotum. To make matters worse (funnier?)

The internet bubble knows all about you, and serves you results depending on what you and your social circle have been reading lately.
