Very cool “enter“ key doormat. There’s also a “home“ version. Both are made from recycled rubber.

I was watching TV last night and saw a Jack in the Box commercial that was sporting a brand new logo. Apparently they’re going through a complete rebranding, that will include redoing the look and feel of the restaurants. If you can’t quite remember what the old logo looked like, here’s a side-by-side.
I’m not sure how I feel about the new logo. I kind of like it, but it just doesn’t feel like Jack in the Box to me… it’s a little too slick. As much as I like Jack in the Box, I do tend to think of them as a late-night grease pit… a place to get a fried-egg sandwich at 2:00am with the winos, and teen club-goers. I suppose that’s the image they’re trying to shed.
As part of a school project, Swedish designer, Tomas Nilsson, took on the task of reinterpreting Little Red Riding Hood. I think he did an awesome job. I especially like when the wolf evaluates the nutritional value of the grandma.
This Blackberry ad is simply brilliant. Too bad RIM (maker of the Blackberry) rejected it. The ad was actually created on spec by New York production house, Guava Studios, who’s gained quite a lot of worldwide attention for this little gem.

I can’t say I was actually able to read much of this, but it’s a very interesting style of typography in motion graphics. I enjoyed watching it.

Auditorium is an addictive new game set to be released on January 30th, 2009, but you can play a demo of it right now over at playauditorium.com.
I’m not normally much of a game player, but in this case all I can say is, WOW! This thing is freakin’ awesome!
I won’t say too much about the specifics of play, because I think figuring it out is part of the fun. All I’m going to give you is a quote from the site:
“Auditorium is about the process of discovery and play. There are no right or wrong answers; there are many ways to solve every puzzle. To get started, fill up the first audio container. We hope you enjoy the demo of Auditorium.”
I suggest everyone go play… right now!
