The Cliche RC Car Chase

It's not the first miniature car chase to leave us desperately missing our RC toys of yesteryear. But this one perfectly captures the feeling of your stereotypical Hollywood blockbuster car chase — complete with tiny sidewalk cafes for the cars to smash through. An RC Car chase made entirely out of cardboard, hot glue, and spray paint.

Great long takes

My new Tottenham Logo

I'm working on a new Logo/Mascot for my Tottenham-fan page, and I was wondering if you would be so kind and give me some feedback of the design. It's inspired by the Club badge, the cockerel logo.

TED – Ideas Worth Spreading

I know I’ve mentioned this site before, but I think it’s so good, it is worth mentioning again. One of my favorite websites of all time, used for inspiration, education and some times just entertainment: TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since [...]
