TfL – Tube or False?

Spotted this on Friday (in a boiling hot horror carriage on the Northern Line).

“In 1907 an innovative spiral escaltor was installed at Holloway Road Station.”

Tube or False?

There’s quite of few of them. Nice use of design and history. I like it.

The Evolution of the ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ Meme

Posted: January 29th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Creative, Design, Social, Visual | Tags: , , | No Comments »

You know something has captured the imagination when you see it on a British Gas TVC – currently airing in the UK.

Today’s must-see delicious web bit comes from Oscillator’s Christina Agapakis who after seeing a trend of the popular ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ poster developing into a full blown meme rife with parody and recreation, drew up an awesome family tree infographic of how the parodies have evolved.

Dear Derwent: Tea Building Lifts

Posted: January 25th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Funny, Social | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

I work in the Tea Building. It’s freezing in the winter and boiling in the summer. It’s surrounded by dirt and fllth because the ever-so-plush Shoreditch House is constantly expanding and refitting as it looks after it’s members. They’ve also put in an ever so trendy Pizza shop where the T-Bar used to be. We’ve had building works and renovation for as long as I can remember.

We’re up on the 7th floor. There a 4 lifts at the back of the building and they are a total joke. 1 of them has NEVER worked, 1 of them only goes to the 5th floor, 1 of them won’t work if the door isn’t shut properly (it’s a manual slide door which visitors always forget to close), and the ‘newer’ silver lift is constantly out of use. We have those stupid “Sorry for the inconvenience” signs up all the time and have become totally immune to them.

Thankfully someone has finally snapped. This perfectly sums up the mood of the people that work here.

I’m sure it won’t make a jot of difference to Derwent – but it sure as hell cheered everyone up as we queued for the single lift to the 7th floor this morning.

Good work.

Video Ads in Street View

San Francisco Panorama with Embedded Video from digitalurban on Vimeo.

Last week Gizmodo spotted that Google has filed a patent entitled “Claiming Real Estate in Panoramic or 3D Mapping Environments for Advertising,” which in short allows them to paste media (adverts) onto the images.

Its interesting how the mouse in Street View follows the 3D space, we assume to allow any data to be tagged to buildings etc.

With data of course comes the ability to provide click throughs and advertising. We dont think it will limited to simple images however as video can also be embedded into panoramas as one of our previous examples shows.

Colenso BBDO Auckland have created a road safety billboard that bleeds every time it rains.
