Apple Think Different Campaign

February 29, 2012

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

A little nostalgia. A lot of impact.

Creative Debate: Parents Magazine Redesign

February 22, 2012

Parents Magazine grew up a little with their new redesign, which debuted with the February 2012 issue. Instead of cutesy close-ups of babies and super bright, kid-friendly colors, readers are now greeted with cozy lifestyle shots and sophisticated hues — colors you could actually wear or paint on a wall in your house. I like the new look. It’s a lot cleaner and much more modern. Looks a lot prettier sitting on a coffee table (especially next to Real Simple). The lifestyle images are nice, conveying those little “ohh, how sweet” moments that touch a parent’s heart. But I’m not too sure that I’m a fan of the new organization of articles. Before, sections were divided so moms could quickly find content relevant to their child’s age. Now, sections are organized by themes, such as fun, hot topics, time for mom, etc. The age-specific info is still there but it’s a much smaller, 10-page section. Hmmm… What do you think? Do tell.

So simple. So true. And so stolen from Swiss Miss.

The Frosted Petticoat

February 13, 2012

Chocolate mustache? Yes, please!

Chocolate is a most divine treat. And these chocolate confections are a sweet treat for the eyes as well. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I stumbled across The Frosted Petticoat on etsy. Edible art, indeed. And almost too pretty to eat.
