Crisis Relief Singapore - Liking ins't helping / Flood / War / Earthquake

"Liking isn' helping" yells this grunge font that seems straight from the 90s. The realistic images show a young girl stranded in a floodzone, surrounded by thumbs up, a child amputee with thumbs up and a young war victim dying, also cheered on by thumbs.

Sarcasm in PSA's. Interesting.

Awarded in Cannes! Someone liked it enough to hand it a Gold Lion. Woop!

Young & Laramore rebrands unique gift shop

Indianapolis based Silver in the City bills itself as "A gift site for everyone who isn't everyone."

Taking this attitude into account, Young & Laramore did a complete rebrand of the store, inside out, and website. The print can be found here.

Fun stuff. Makes me want to visit Indianapolis just to check it out.

Young and Laramore: Silver in The City

Indianapolis based Silver in the City bills itself as "A gift site for everyone who isn't everyone."

The print certainly feels that way, too.

Their lines are hilarious, including one that disses vegans, that no doubt will get some nasty comments on this site.

I love the look of this place, too. Awesome job, peeps!

Martin Sorell warns : Prism will alter attitudes towards data

Martin Sorell rightly calls Google, Twitter, facebook et al "media companies masquerading as technology companies", and believes that The Guardian’s revelation about the National Security Agency PRISM program will directly affect consumer behavior. Not just the old farts who have been online since 1990s, but also for the snapchatting kids who have grown up online and have a very different attitude toward privacy. This will change. (Finally!)

Speaking to Brandrepublic in Cannes Sorell says "Prism will alter attitudes towards data".

Photographer sues BuzzFeed for $3.6M for using photo without permission

Yikes! As reported by Paidcontent :"Photographer sues BuzzFeed for $3.6M over viral sharing model", Imaging Resource : "Photographer sues BuzzFeed for $3.6 million over image use", and Petapixel: "Photographer Sues BuzzFeed for $3.6M for Using Photo Without Permission" ....a photographer has sued Buzzfeed. For lots of money.

The image which was ganked off the photographers clearly labelled "all rights reserved" flickr page, and posted in a Buzzfeed listicle called the 30 funniest header faces. Buzzfeed did the DMCA thing and removed the image as soon as the Kai Eiselein alerted them to the fact that nobody had asked for permission to use that image. Not good enough! Kai Eiselein is slapping Buzzfeed with a suit anyway, arguing that Buzzfeed encourages people to share, syndicate, source and plain old steal from them - thus causing the image to appear all over the web.

Buzzfeed, Inc. actively encourages its users to share content, regardless of whether or not that content is owned by, or licensed to, Buzzfeed. The plaintiff asserts that Buzzfeed, Inc. is responsible for 61 contributory infringements upon his photograph.

Xbox One and the ASCII middle-fingers on facebook.

Right now the Xbox's Facebook page is home the what may be the worlds largest collection of ASCII art bird-flipping. Consumers aren't loving the new Xbox One system. Sony pwned Xbox with this Playstation 4 "official sharing tutorial", and I suppose the gamers decided to join in mocking Microsoft, invading facebook en masse.

Who is Zesty Guy really targeting; gay men or a million offended moms?

Ladies... Can we talk?

You know how I say sexist ads are bad for everyone, and that there's a balance of humor and emotion that needs to be reached for the character to evolve beyond the rock-hard abs, now he's just an object, so you know I'm not a fan. I'm not working for the type of equality where both genders have it equally bad.

Dumb ways to die starts winning everything in Cannes.

As predicted Dumb Ways To Die is raking home the lions in Cannes, it took the Grand Prix in the Direct Lions and PR Lions. It also got a nice Gold Lion in the Promo & Activation Lions category. Trust me, it ain't over until the fat fireworks blow up on Saturday, there will be more. How do I know? Have you seen anything else memorable in 2012? That cleaned up at both D&AD and One Show?

Of course, this is Cannes, we can always hope for a dark horse from an exotic country .. :)
