It starts and ends with the concept. The success will depend on one thing: a good idea. The tendency is to fall into the style over substance trap, or execution over concept.

Visual slickness might draw people in, but it won’t keep them there. The key question is more important than ever: will your idea stand out?

Dumb Starbucks Update: Still Subject to Health Inspection Despite Being an “Art Gallery”

Comedian Nathan Fielder could serve up to six months in prison for serving un-inspected coffee (and pastries from Ralphs). So far he’s dodged that bullet by listing his business as an art gallery, but if you’re planning to get filthy rich by expanding into Brooklyn, you’re going to have to play by the book.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzz….next.

Oldest trick in the book. But it seriously works.

The bad news is I was forced to leave my office Secret Santa gift in LA over the holiday. The good news is I’m pretty sure these don’t have an expiration date.

Oh Yeah Boo-Berry!

What happens when you’re a Brooklyn-based illustration studio that releases an absurdly, ridiculously, profusely detailed chart of beer? Unable to top this perfect intersection of high-minded design and sudsy, sudsy illustration, do you just pop a cold one and close up shop? Or do you put a fresh coat of wax on that handlebar mustache, grab another cronut, and get back to work?

Pop Chart Lab did the latter, doubling down on their design that’s been in the works since 2010 to create this 60-by-40-inch malty monstrosity calledThe Magnificent Multitude of Beer. That’s 5 feet wide. In fact, once the crew added in a whole new level of beer subgenres—like West Coast IPA and vegetable beer—the print ended up so large that Pop Chart Lab had to find a new printing crew capable of handling the job.

I would read so much less if it weren’t for #infographics.

Watch Werner Herzog’s harrowing documentary on texting and driving
Filmmaker and documentarian Werner Herzog (Aguirre: The Wrath of God, Grizzly Man) has directed a short film on the dangers of texting and driving. From One Second to the Next looks at how four lives have been impacted by texting-related accidents. Created for AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign, which has the backing of all the major US carriers, the documentary expands on the TV spots that Herzog also produced. 

It’s good to see AT&T involved in this…smart move.
