Before I Die

“Before I Die” is a project by Candy Chang who is a public installation artist, designer, urban planner, and co-founder of Civic Center who likes to make cities more comfortable for people.

In this project she turned the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood into a giant chalkboard where residents can write on the wall and remember what is important to them. Before I Die transforms neglected spaces into constructive ones where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us.

Google Doodles

i love the way Google change its style due to holidays and special events. Although sometimes they change almost every letter, you can still understand that it is Google, they have a really strong visual identity that even people who don’t use internet knows its appearance.

These are some of my favourites

Smart “Smart” Ads

Smart, Fits everywhere

 

Smart Brabus

I found these Smart ads very clever and simple. They basically give the message by an image and just a phrase. Smart!

Satirical Art Drawings

These are satirical drawings of Pawel Kuczynski. He is Polish, he graduated from Fine Arts Academy in Poznan. He is famous about his political drawings. I think it is good that he is dealing with social problems, he is doing it in a humorous way and make people think about it.
