IBM website

I was reading about Madoff - yuck - when I noticed on the bottom of my screen that there was a very cute little flash graphic going on advertising IBM.

I was interested - I clicked, and arrived at a really cute array of small flash movies promoting IBM's new interest in creating a "thinking world." Check out here

While the frame for the site is a little clunky and kinda off-putting, I was really delighted by the little iconic graphics that reminded me a bit of GOOD and perhaps a return to Paul Rand's IBM.

Banco Espirito Santo

I'm supposed to be working (I guess I am working). While I was "working" I came across this really awesome branding document for Banco Espirito Santo of Lisbon, Portugal.

I'm not sure who did the rebrand, but I really enjoyed looking at the document. And it was especially helpful with regards to organizing my own branding books that I am creating this quarter - so much branding - even though it is all written in Portuguese!

Daylight Savings

Damn it - I lost one WHOLE hour today because of the freaking sun.

Screw you sun and daylight savings.
