dress code founders, Dan Covert and Andre Andreev have written a book Never Sleep. The book’s web site has a wonderful section Ask the Portfolio. A very informative page for design students; go check it out.
Adrian Shaughnessy (one of my favorite design writers) wrote an article for Design Observer detailing the Oscar-winning short animation Logorama by H5. It’s really amazing to see graphic design genre work coming into mainstream, first with Helvetica, the movie and now a short featuring the idea of branding. I love it. I can’t wait to see the entire animation. For a preview click here.
Somewhat disappointing, but the highest “liked” Doritos House Rules is pretty good. Watch them for yourself on hulu.com.
