MehmetGozetlikHeaderWith his latest series, designer Mehmet Gozetlik raises the question “what would happen if you took iconic brands and minimized the details on their packaging to their absolute minimum?” In many cases, the experiment elevated the brand, bringing a simple and elegant feel to the product. While a few explorations seem to work on the generic product level, most work best at the 3rd level of distillation, where the logo alone functions on a colored field with a particular shape

BoggieHeader

Hungarian singer Boggie has created a music video in which she is digitally retouched from normal girl into glamorous pop star. Through a combination of CGI trickery and seamless editing, the video for “Nouveau Parfum” is so attention grabbing, it’s hard to look away.

Old Spice has reenlisted former Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa for Interneterventions, the new online initiative pushing the brand’s body sprays. The campaign is built around nine bogus websites that advertise gawdy, faux-manly products and services—like black leather sheets, a live-in gym and a solid gold bluetooth—and Mustafa’s over-the-top disdain for all of them, and anyone who would be sucked in by them.

Users can send the sites to friends as a prank (via Twitter, Facebook or email), and when they try to click around, a warning buzzer sounds and Mustafa appears to offer help for poor lifestyle choices.

ChinoOtsukaHeaderJapanese London-based photographer Chino Otsuka has created a series of nostalgic and heartwarming photos that combine two different worlds–the past and the present. In “Imagine Finding Me,” Chino digitally inserts herself into old photos, so that she is standing next to her younger self. The concept is simple and her digital manipulation of the photos is done so well it makes it seem she is a time traveler.
