I came across these posters from another blog. The posters are apparently the home places of certain superheroes. Take a look!

So, one thing in this world I love is getting regular manicures and wearing fun nail polish colors. I haven't gotten a manicure in a while because I bit all of my nails off due to the stress of this semester. However, when my nails grow back, my nail colors will be POPPIN'!
Anywho, my fav nail polish brand, OPI, has a cool website that allows visitors to see the type of nail colors they have and try them on virtually. The "try on" option lets vistors adjust their nail length and skin tone to find out if a color is truly for them. Personally, I don't do this often because if I see a color I like, I will wear it regardless. Check it out at http://opi.com/.

The image above is an ad for Australia Post, which is an Australian postal service. It encourages its audience to send letters for a more personal touch, which seems silly in the world of email. However, the ad is very clever (and a little creepy) for it to mainly consist of type. I wish the woman didn't have that facial expression, but I am sure I would look worse if a man emerged out of a letter to hug me. I think this is a good, yet simple use of typography.

You may laugh. This is the new album cover for rapper Sheek Louch, formerly of The Lox. Now, I don't have much to say about this other than WHY? Why compare yourself to a gorilla on this cover? 50 Cent is close enough. The sad thing is, I always thought Sheek Louch was attractive. Now, I will always think of this horrible cover and how much he looks like King Kong now. I am certain this cover coordinates with the name of his album and its content, but damn! On the other side, whoever photoshopped this, did too good of a job. It's a sad day...

I came across a short narrative entitled "Missing Pieces" from www.kentonbartlett.com/post.htm, and actually like it! I don't want to spoil the plot, but the video reminds me of a movie trailer. This is because the quality of the video is great, and the editing is awesome. Also, the music choice is good. The video also has a voice over that gives detail of what's going on. I really wish someone else read the narrative because the woman's voice doesn't have a good fit to me. Other than that, the video is pretty cool. Take a look...

I came across some really cool designs that have a vintage feel to them. They were created by Dutch illustrator and graphic designer Stefan Glerum. I absolutely love the image above, mainly because of the color scheme Glerum used. The overall design is simple, but awesome. It appears to be a poster for an event, and the clean design works very well. I have included a few more of his designs/illustrations below, but check out his website. He is certainly an inspiration.
