The Sprite Shower

The photo comes from a site called CollegeHumor, but there is also a pretty cool video on YouTube.

This is some very clever marketing, indeed.

Coming to a beach near you…the Sprite Shower.

Looks like like the soda fountain at your local restaurant.

Except you are the cup!

On the hot sandy beach with the Sprite Shower cooling me down and washing me off…

I think I’ll reach for a cold one too. 😉

Coca-Cola, the maker of lemon-lime Sprite, has some of the best marketing minds in the business–Coke still is it!

War —> Peace

War_to_peace

I like this clever poster from the United Nations, published in March 2009 by their Department of Public Information, on “Translating War to Peace” with a dove carrying the letter “A” from the word war to the word peace.

If only peace was as simple as moving around a single letter.

Usually, it not the single letter that is painful, but when it becomes many letters and these letters form words of hate, bigotry, intolerance, and injustice that is indeed painful and where war does not translate to peace, but where war become unfortunately inevitable.

As individuals and a nation, I believe peace is what we all hope and pray for and that this comes from a spirit of brotherhood and unity around the world.

Although there are many prayers for peace, I am reminded of one specific beautiful prayer In Judaism, that we sing called “Oseh Shalem”

“May he who makes peace in high places, make peace for all of us and all Israel, and let us say Amen.”

I love singing this and humming the tune for this prayer–it is like a deep calling that resonates.

I noticed online that the United Nations “cancelled as a sales item” this poster for peace (and it’s also gone from Amazon), and it should make us all wonder where did that peace go and when will it return?

A genuine peace–more than a single letter and a secure and lasting peace of many letters.

Bathroom De/sign Winner

Bathroom_signage

This is a winner to me when it comes to smartest bathroom signage.

 

From graphic designer, Aliza Dzik.

 

I like that the signage identifies the wo/men bathrooms very cleverly and simply (and without any obscene graphics).

 

Intelligence + Simplicity = User-centric

 

Love it!
