Erased words

February 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

Just erase: words, commas, sentences to reveal the true emotion and find poetry. Newspaper Blackout, a Tumblr blog of Austin-based artist and writer Austin Kleon (included in TIME magazine’s list of the  30 Must-See Tumblr Blogs) creates”blackout poetry” just by blacking out unwanted text with a permanent marker and revealing new and shorter versions of poetic expression.

Book club for design nerds

August 31, 2011 § 1 Comment

What do designers do after they read a book? Do they discuss about it as regular bibliophiles? Do they write fun fiction as regular nerds? Nope, they each create a book cover and post it on the book cover club, for your enjoyment:

365 six word stories

May 17, 2011 § 1 Comment

“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

According to urban myth that is the reply Ernest Hemingway gave when he was challenged to write a story in just six words.

400 billion stars feel so aloneraining on my parade no umbrellashe faked it never liked jazz

In 2010 two creatives, Van Horgen, writer, and Anne Ulku, designer, felt up to the challenged. They launched six word story everyday blog and did exactly that: they posted one six word story for every single day of the year.

he couldnt say no to hereven the sun will burn itselfyou re morning light soft & grand

Once 2010 came to an end, they opened up the project to everybody on sixwordstoryeveryday.com.

6 word story every day

Admittedly, these are great story openers rather than stories in themselves, but very interesting, still.poolside a man literally hanging out

London tube sticker commentary

May 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

Whatever you call it, subway, tube or metro, you can’t deny that long comuting trips can get pretty boring. And if you are anything like me, you end up counting stops by checking the map obsessively. Well, if you’re riding the central line in London you’re in for a surprise. Witty remarks have replaced some of the stations. And, of course, there is a tumblr about it: stickers on the central line.
