The flag for South Korea was mistakenly displayed at a women’s football match between North Korea and Colombia.
The ad has been booked into the sport and Olympic supplements of the following papers today (27 July): Metro, The Sun, the Daily Mail, Daily Star, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, Daily Mirror, The Independent, I, The Guardian and the Daily Express.
Part of the success of this campaign is the instantaneous response from the Specsavers creative team to see an opportunity and get it printed in nationwide paper the next day. The ‘campaign’ has been seen once before when England met Ukraine at the Euros.
A nice piece of packaging with a solution for the classic ‘hand not fitting in the pringles tube’ dilemma. [Source]

Today (Friday 4th May 2012) is my last day on placement at Uniform and the last of my planned placements so far(although I may try and fit in a couple more before I go back to uni) A full post about the last few months will be posted at some point, but for now, here is a photo a wall in the offices of Uniform.
A select few pieces from Tyler Stouts vast library of designs.

A possible handbook given to employees of Valve easing them into their new job. While I’m not sure if this is genuine or not, it sure is well designed with humor and nice illustrations and it describes an awesome sounding place of work.

I’m sure they need some graphic designers so I’ll be applying for a job and no doubt planning my move over there any day now!
“swissted is an ongoing project by graphic designer mike joyce, owner of stereotype design in new york city. drawing from his love of punk rock and swiss modernism, two movements that have (almost) nothing to do with one another, mike has redesigned vintage punk, hardcore, and indie rock show flyers into international typographic style posters. each design is set in berthold akzidenz grotesk medium, all lowercase.” [source]
Here are a selection of some of my favourite of the posters. There are many, many more to be found on the site.
While it is starting to look like my job is to promote the film Prometheus, I have a totally legit design reason for this post! Check out these poster designs for the film. One of them is an official poster, the rest are fan made. Not too shabby if you ask me.
(The official one is the big face with a person standing in front of the light)
