“…como siempre fueron bastante transgresores, este anuncio originario de Alemania y que se ha adaptado ahora para Reino Unido no iba a ser menos. Eso sí, lo cierto es que quizás la broma se les ha ido un poco de las manos, y es que aprovechar las víctimas que causó el trágico hundimiento del Titanic para anunciarse… ¡pues como que no! Tanto es así que son muchos a los que no les ha gustado nada un spot animado que insinúa que con Red Bull todos se habrían salvado. Por supuesto, las quejas no se hicieron esperar “.
La gente de A Nerds World — quienes descubrieron la cámara — crearon unos GIF animados que nos permiten darnos una idea de una de las guerras más terribles de la humanidad.

Each slide is a piece of history in photographic form and I get shivers every time I place a glass slide into the 3D stereo viewer. Only at A Nerd’s World 986 Bathurst street can you see the 3D stereo camera, viewer, and actual World War I slides in person – leaving you with an experience you’ll never forget.
According to an article from the Huffington Post, “special panels have been installed at First World War memorials enabling the public to use their smartphones to learn about the history of the service personnel who lost their lives.”
Over 100 panels are being places across the UK as educational tools to shed light on the events of WWI. The article goes on to say that, “when scanned with a smartphone, the QR code provides access to information including personal stories of some of the casualties buried or commemorated at the memorial.”
Roughly 100 years after the first World War, this QR Code campaign is meant to offer an effective and long-lasting educational facet to the war memorials. Prince Edward was quoted as saying, “it is a powerful means of combining traditional methods with new technology to ensure we never forget.”
These efforts by the British government signal more widespread acceptance for QR Codes and various mobile technologies – a bridge from historic events to our smartphones.
Layout, for both print and screen, is one of the most important aspects of graphic design. Designs that extend across multiple pages or screens, whether containing large or small amounts of type, must be carefully controlled in a way that is enticing and is easy for all to access.

Careful control of visual hierarchy is a key aspect of the design decisions we have to consider. In this article, we will look at how frequently type needs to be broken down into different levels, such as topic, importance and tone of voice.
The project “To Understand Poland 39-89″ is a concept album by the Polish composer, songwriter, activist, and producer Łukasz Rostowski, aka L.U.C. The record is delineated by two very important dates: the year of the outbreak of World War II, and the collapse of totalitarian political systems.

Six reasons why I hate meetings, and what you can do to make them more efficient
I was recently out to lunch with a few colleagues who work at a very cool company. The CEO of their company had left, and the second in command had taken over. They like her, but they said the number of meetings they’re required to go to now has doubled.
They were describing my hell.
Now, I don’t think that meetings are completely useless. But I do think that most companies have useless meetings, including my own. And the people at my company, VerticalResponse, will tell you that they know how I feel.
Why do I hate meetings? Let me count the ways. Leer más “Don’t Let Meetings Suck Your Time”
