How a plain box makes a difference.

This box never has to deal with a store shelf. It doesn’t require layers of plastic — so you can open it easily. It can use fewer materials than our retail package — which can make recycling simpler. And it would love to be recycled (where facilities exist).

It’s just one small thing we’re doing to make your experience, and the planet, a little better. your choice to buy online helps make it possible.

A brown box may not be pretty, but we think the results are beautiful.

I think so too. Thank Logitech.

Believed to be the most geometrically complex and aesthetically beautiful structure in mathematics, the 4_21 polytope is the algebraic form at the centre of a universal theory of everything. Originally described in the late 19th century, 4_21 models all interactions and transformations between known and postulated sub-atomic particles. It is the 21st century equivalent of the proto-scientific art of alchemy – where the transmutation of elements was the most elusive mystery of the universe. The theory is an attempt to reconcile one of the fundamental unsolved problems in physics: unify quantum physics and gravitation in hopes of ultimately explaining the fabric of the universe.

I am a notebook hoarder. I have so many of them I can never finish using them. Yet I continuously buy more and more of them. Of all the notes books that I have ever used, the one thing I really wished I have is a pen holder! There is never a right place for them between notebooks. Finally, the Pen holder Pen Clip by Stefan Diez made for Authentics solves my problem by attaching itself to any note book and any pen or pencil. Now I can have my pen eaxactly where it needs to be, beside my notebook!

Starbucks just announced a rebranding exercise in progress here. A great evolution in my view, going the way of the Nike tick without the Nike logotype, consumers are now familiar enough with the mermaid in a circle to not have the Starbucks logotype around it. The resulting mark feels fresh and modern, yet, from the chronology of the logo, did not evolve that much away from its initial one 40 years ago.

A great identity programme, where the simplest icon, in this case the Euroslot, is elevated to become the expressive part of a supermarket brand. Makes great sense! A 12 pound puncher makes great economical sense, instantly branding all collaterals with very little overhead, a great idea for a not for profit supermarket. Super all round work by the people at Unreal.
