There's nothing like cute salt and pepper shakers to make an ordinary meal on an ordinary seem a little brighter. Above, Koziol of Germany created these birds on a tree salt and pepper shaker set. You can buy it here.
I love these nifty advertisments for 'new' life changing technologies. They'll shave off hours of letter writing a day and allow you to spend more time with your feet up doing sweet nothing. These ads were aparently created by agency Moma São Paulo.

prepared an infographic to dis all useless infographics.
Infographics (the art of turning raw, boring data into visually appealing displays and charts) has gained popularity in the last few years as a hot new frontier in graphic design (even though the craft itself is pretty old). It's easy to see why the technique is overused and in danger of being undervalued as a specialized form of graphic design.
Plot Jewelry turns raw data into wearable art. The pendants feature fluctuations in price of commodities trading like gold, silver and lead. A graph is embedded in clear acrylic. Plot is a part of ad agency Wieden+Kennedy in London, UK.
They are also running a limited time sale! (more details after the jump)
I happened to stumble upon some really awesome vintage design in the unexpected form of ammunition packaging. Here's a collection we gathered from around the web - we hope you'll find it as a source of inspiration.

A quick google of 'what i wore today' and you'll find pages of sites wanting to share their fashion savvy with their readers. Well, what if you're camera shy or what if you're not wearing anything 'branded' but still feel good about what you put together? What if you were also an artist?
There's been a startling logo evolution time line circulating on the web showing how Pepsi's logo keeps changing while Coca-Cola's remained consistently the same throughout history. This was proven to be somewhat inaccurate by Armin at Brand New (who prepared the true time line above). The evolution is very interesting. Pepsi can't seem to find a comfortable footing with its identity, but I really like how Coca-Cola has come full circle, re-embracing its origins in the 1940's iconic logo still familiar today.
