Across The Sea

Is summer over with yet? I don’t think I’ve ever hoped for a summer to move so fast in all my life. Let’s just say I’m looking forward to autumn (which is a beauty in Columbus) and the fresh snow of winter to fall and signify new beginings.

Time goes so slow.

Jumbo Logo

I found this fantastic article on Font Shop about how the term Web 2.0 has changed the way corporate branding is being handled today. Website identities today have a certain soft, glossy, and friendly feel to them which while inviting is starting to get horribly redundant. Perhaps its a result in the difference between additive vs. subtractive color mixing. Who knows? Either way, I’d wager there is going to be a whole generation of kids with a highly saturated color preference in the near future. Wish you were here to see it Paul.

Like anything spawned from the net, once something gets too popular there is a harsh backlash. Check out some of these concepts for Web 2.0 logos of your favorite mainstream brands (like the ones up top). Hilarious.

Lime green is the new everything.

More Air. More World.

Every once in a while you see a site that sticks with you for a while or in my case sticks with me enough to actually dust off the old blog and write. The new Nike Air site, my friend Kyle tipped me to, is one of them. It’s got it all, it’s cutting-edge, it’s clever, it’s emersing. I can’t remember the last pair of Nike shoes I bought but I also can’t remember the last time I was disappointed with anything Nike has offered on the web. I hope the rest of the internet catches up.
