Gosh, that's clever

Oooo…wearable tech I might actually consider wearing!

Android Are Bringing Technology to the Wrist

“Information that moves with you”. This is the promise of the newly announced smart watch concept from Android. In the past few years, the phrase “wearable technology” has been on the minds of every big tech company. Now, many of them are making true on the promise of smart devices solely built for portability and ease of use. What setsAndroid Wear apart from the flood of smart watches and wristbands, is the combination of Google OS and a truly elevated design aesthetic.

By incorporating incredibly intelligent software, any information is at the tip of your finger and a glance at your wrist. Search for exciting new restaurants, find the quickest route home, or find out the name of the actor who was in that obscure movie from your childhood.

Before the announcement of Android Wear, we have been limited to rather bulky smart watches or sporty, rubberized bands that can stand out (in a negative way). While the concepts for Android wear are still on the large side, thankfully with the help of theMotorola design team, the watches are moving towards a more inconspicuous look. Basically, you will no longer feel like you have a brick strapped to your wrist.

The joy of books - I love this video, it’s fun and playful, and must have taken ages to produce. Very clever!

Last year it was McBess, this year 20things was designed by artist Peter Jaworowski at Ars Thanea (I keep telling you guys how clever those folks are). See if you can figure out all 20, tweet your answers using #20things.

Best e-commerce site of 2011 has to go to Etsy! Where else can you buy handmade, one of a kind faery crowns, steampunk jewellery, and hand knitted Viking hats for your infant? Forget eBay and it’s cheap second hand goods, forget the high street stores, Etsy showcases the work of some of the most creative people on the planet. How can you not celebrate that? Definitely hands down a winner for me!

My favourite designer of 2011 has to be Mike Kus. In a world of same old same old, Mike’s designs really stand out. They are clean and easy to use with a focus of the user experience (and a kick-ass infographic style). Check out the work he did for War Child, one of my favourite charities!
I look forward to seeing lots more of Mike’s work in 2012.

Most memorable television ad of 2011 - for me it’s the Lynx Excite advert, it’s beautifully filmed and the concept, though not totally original, was well executed. It was also integrated with an augmented reality element staged at London’s Victoria station.

Give the gift of blood - a nobel and clever blood bag design by Helsinki-based designer Kiseung Lee. Let’s hope the design inspires people to give a gift that really matters:)

Lemsip Man Flu Facebook campaign is very clever. James Brown singing “It’s a Man’s Flu” and you can customise the video and send it to your friends. I sent one to my boss (hi Andy), it’s the only time I can get away with calling him a big baby:)
I love seeing how brands are using video in different ways. The interactive videos are old news, but this is as least fresh and fun!

New technology, vintage ads - Kindle


Yeah the paradox of technology paired with a vintage ad is quite interesting. Now I’d like to see the Three Stooges battle it out with an iPhone, an Android phone, and a Samsung Galaxy!

McDonald’s I Spy interactive video campaign, there are supposed to be 50 videos in all, of which this is the first one! Childish, but fun:)
