I dare you to watch this all the way through; I still haven’t made it. Is this a joke? If so, who’s in on it? I have to imagine that someone at WSJ, at some point between filming and uploading the video to Youtube, realized this man was completely insane but just decided to roll with it. Either that or Will.i.am has an incredible sense of humor and this is just the first in a series of hilarious lectures where he just fires off random thoughts from the top of his head about various topics ranging from foreign policy to automotive design.
Who thought it would be a good idea to interview Will.i.am about logo design in the first place? What was that whole thing about India? So many questions…
To make it easier on you I’ve distilled the wisdom of this video down to some key concepts you need to be familiar with when developing a logo: “The New World”, “What India is going to do to the world”, “English, but with a different alphabet”, “Problems”, “Don’t use the word brand”, “New types of fonts”.
2 brands that we know and love collaborated on 2 beautiful pairs of sunglasses. Head over to Warby Parker for the story and a great playlist curated by Ghostly International of their catalog.

Lets start this week off with some slow jam videos that are dancey but not too wild for this summer heat. I’ve had this Hayden James track on repeat, Future Classics was the most prepared label for the 2013 summer.
Alexander Kopatz is a biologist and wildlife researcher from Svanvik, Norway, who I’ve been following for sometime now through his blog, GO 70° NORTH. I love the way his nostalgic and subtle tones match the stark and expansive landscapes he works in. Highly recommended that you follow him on his blog or updates through his Facebook and Instagram.
While Com Truise preps newer material he did a session with Room 205 exploring the space with 3 polished up new tracks. Below is footage of each track thats a collab effort director Babak Khoshnoud and producer Will Abramson of Yours Tru.ly.
I found paintings in my on going search for artificial landscapes. I think we all have that place in our hearts for that architecture and nature fantasy mesh, even if its office buildings or in this case dramatic islands floating in the sky.
