HUMOR CRISIS

No es una cuestión de broma, porque hay mucha gente pasándolo mal cada día. Pero, inevitablemente, cuando un tema como la actual crisis económica acaba ocupando todas las conversaciones y las portadas de los medios durante cinco años, los humoristas terminan aplicando su bisturí más irónico para sacar de ella las carcajadas que todos necesitamos. Y cinco años de crisis dan para muchos chistes. En el Reino Unido, ya en 2008, agudos expertos trataron de explicar lo que estaba pasando….

Google: 62 Percent Of Valentine’s Day Restaurant Searches Were Mobile


by  | http://searchengineland.com

Google is releasing some data on mobile search and Valentine’s Day. The company said, “A whopping 62 percent of total searches for popular national chain restaurants [in the US] on Valentine’s Day occurred on high end mobile devices or tablets.”

One more time: 62 percent of all US-based national chain restaurant queries were coming from mobile devices.

Google focused on national restaurant chains because it could disambiguate and identify them as such. It could well be that the 62 percent figure extends across the entire restaurant category.

Restaurant chain searches leading up to Valentine’s Day

Google told me that it sometimes can’t tell what’s a restaurant search and what’s not. For example, someone searching for “radicchio” or “papaya” might be looking for a restaurant, recipes or nutrition facts. By contrast, Google knows for sure that Morton’s or McCormick & Schmick are restaurants.

Google also reported last-minute searches for flower-related terms grew 227 percent during the same week leading up to Valentine’s Day. On the day itself “Consumers were 560% more likely to click to make a call week over week.  And mobile clicks to get directions increased 514% over the same period as people were scrambling to find a nearby florist.”

Google also graphed click to call actions hour by hour on V-Day itself (w/in California), with an early peak at 8:30 am(ish) and another one during the lunch hour. Sigue leyendo

Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: December 2010

http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2010/11/30/desktop-wallpaper-calendar-december-2010/

Desktop wallpapers can serve as an excellent source of inspiration. However, if you use a specific wallpaper for a longer period of time, it becomes harder to draw inspiration out of it. That’s why we have decided to supply you with smashing wallpapers for over 12 months. To make them a little more distinctive than the usual crowd, we’ve decided to embed calendars for the upcoming month. So if you happen to be searching for a specific day of the month, isn’t it better to show off a nice wallpaper with a nice calendar instead of launching some default time application?

This post features 40 free desktop wallpapers, created by designers across the globe for December 2010. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded for free.

Wallpaper: Full Moon


Halloween: A night of terror celebrated worldwide.

For many, it is also a night to let loose and explore their personal creativity. This creative energy fuels some unbelievable costumes, amazing parties, and usually some pretty unique libations to go with.

Almost everyone has something that scares the living crap out of them. One of my fears happens to be being lost in an ominous forest teaming with unknown creatures and… maybe even worse… undead MySpace pages!

This fear is what inspired me to create this “spook-tacular” Halloween wallpaper. Sigue leyendo

Celebrating Earth Day Through Typography


Author Larissa
In honor of Earth Day on April 22nd, I experimented with nature inspired typography. Using Adobe Photoshop, I formed letters of the alphabet using elements of nature.
post-2The complete alphabet

In this experiment, I was not necessarily trying to create a visual metaphor for each letter such as “A is for Apple” but seeking to create a balance of texture and color. I would also give huge props to Hand Made Font for inspiring this creative challenge.

Artist’s Block

The biggest challenge of this exercise was to think of 26 different expressions of nature. By the time I had 7 or 8 letters remaining, it started becoming rather difficult to think of new ideas. When you have a bad case of “artist’s block”, sometimes it’s best to just keep going because you never know when inspiration will spark.

My Favorites

P + R are 2 of my favoritesP + R are 2 of my favorites

The letter “P” was possibly the most challenging trying to find the right lizard parts to make the Iguana bend.  This was one of the first letters I tackled. (Just for the record, I’m pretty sure that’s not even physically possible for iguanas to hang like that.)

I love geodes and letter “R” turned out quite nicely I think. It was one of the latter letters I completed. Sigue leyendo

Wallpaper: Find your pot of Gold


Author Larissa March
This leprechaun was an exploration of simple shapes and subtle texture.

Yes, in March leprechauns and the color green are cliché.   So, I chose to embrace that cliché and focus on exploring a specific illustrative technique which includes elements of playful awkwardness and subtle texture.

For this leprechaun, I chose to exaggerate his features by choosing a top-down perspective resulting in intentional distorted proportions. His head is big and his feet are small.  The first step was to sketch him out using old-school pencil and paper.

leprechan-sketch

Next, I brought him into Photoshop and added color with a focus on creating depth playing with the contrast of light and dark values. Finally, I added subtle textures to enhance the volume of the shapes and create tangibility beyond a flat illustration.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

What or Who Do You Less Than Three?


This valentine’s day, we wanted to pay homage to <3.
Author Garett

That’s right, less than three. The textual emblem that stands for love. It is often used in text messages, IMs, and tweets. And when directed to a person it can say so much to the reader. Some say a picture is worth a thousand words. We feel the combination of two characters conveys much more.

But the beauty of this little exercise is to allow people to share the things they <3 most and, in turn, share in the expression of others through aggregation. Our goal wasn’t to set out to change the world, or create some crazy viral marketing initiative. We just wanted to share the things we <3.

Visit LessThanThree.AgencyNet.com and tell us what you <3.
