“We talk about web navigation because “figuring out where you are” is a much pervasive problem on the Web than in physical spaces… Navigation isn’t just a feature of a website; it is the website, in the same way the building, the shelves and the cash registers are Sears. Without it, there’s no there there.”

- Steve Krug, in his classic book on usability, ‘Don’t Make Me Think’ (via dennismfactory)

“If you live in America in the 21st century you’ve probably had to listen to a lot of people tell you how busy they are. It’s become the default response when you ask anyone how they’re doing: “Busy!” “So busy.” “Crazy busy.” It is, pretty obviously, a boast disguised as a complaint. And the stock response is a kind of congratulation: “That’s a good problem to have,” or “Better than the opposite.”

Notice it isn’t generally people pulling back-to-back shifts in the I.C.U. or commuting by bus to three minimum-wage jobs who tell you how busy they are; what those people are is not busy but tired. Exhausted. Dead on their feet. It’s almost always people whose lamented busyness is purely self-imposed: work and obligations they’ve taken on voluntarily, classes and activities they’ve “encouraged” their kids to participate in. They’re busy because of their own ambition or drive or anxiety, because they’re addicted to busyness and dread what they might have to face in its absence.

Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness; obviously your life cannot possibly be silly or trivial or meaningless if you are so busy, completely booked, in demand every hour of the day… More and more people in this country no longer make or do anything tangible; if your job wasn’t performed by a cat or a boa constrictor in a Richard Scarry book I’m not sure I believe it’s necessary. I can’t help but wonder whether all this histrionic exhaustion isn’t a way of covering up the fact that most of what we do doesn’t matter.”

No - this isn’t some lame ‘LIKE MY FRIENDS BAND’ post.

It’s just that my mates The Bon Scotts have just released their new single - Polluted Sea. And it’s the first time I’ve seen the stop animation music clip my good friend Rebecca Agnew made with her partner Damien (lead singer of The Bon Scotts).

They did an amazing job.

Check out some of her other awesome stuff here: http://rebeccaagnew.com/

Well done Bec and D-Man, you little champions. It was worth it.

Why aren’t you blogging? Where have you been? Are you...



Why aren’t you blogging? Where have you been? Are you busy? Are you dying? You’re pregnant, aren’t you? Oh my God, that’s it isn’t it? 

These are just some of the questions I have been asked as to where the hell I’ve been. Well not the ‘are you dying’ one.

And here’s the story. Prepare yourself…

I’ve been no where. Work has been busy. And so has life. But I’m making a god damn good effort to get on here once a day like I was. 

So today I wanted to post about the 48 Hour YouTube Cannes Young Lions Ad Contest. Yes. It’s BACK!

Go to the following link to read up more about it: http://www.campaignbrief.com/2011/05/the-48-hour-youtube-cannes-you.html 

If you’ve been following me since this time last year you’ll remember the video I’ve attached. Yes that’s me. Yes I’m nuts. Yes… something something. And yes, for those of you who love ‘WORDS FROM A MOTHER’ - she’s in it. 

The whole idea with the contest is that everyone gets the same brief and has 48 hours to think up an ad, film it and upload it to YouTube.

Last year the brief was to get people to sign a petition for clean drinking water and toilet use in poverty stricken countries. That’s what I made. I pranked. Looking back perhaps a little insensitive? But the day was fun. There were even out-takes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1FbiW0cFS4

I have sad fucking news though. Mainly for me… not so much you. This year I can’t go in it. Why? My boyfriend is moving in on the weekend. Urgh. Maybe if I’m lucky I can somehow incorporate hot moving men into the concept?

We’ll see.

But if you have time you should have a go at it.

“Type reversed out of photography isn’t a new concept, or particularly inventive, but if the photography is good and the type is right it’s pretty damn effective.”

Check out this article from Fonts In Use about the effective use of type & image by Need Supply Co. this past year.
