Bernice Alexandra ‘Ray’ Eames (1912-1988) was an American designer, filmmaker and wife to Charles Eames who designed some of the best-known iconic pieces of contemporary American furniture. Ray often documented her passions in short films on various subjects. In 1968, she made Powers of Ten, a quietly stunning journey from the depths of space to within a nucleus of an atom.
This small film has always helped me to remember the big picture and still never fails as a reminder to always put things in context and perspective.
The film may be over 40 years old today but the little lesson it imparted on me still has a large effect on how I view things moving towards the future.
Thank You, Ray and Charles Eames.

Funny tumblr site where people upload hilarious, usually outrageous, demands from clients. We’ve all been there, haven’t we?
Anyway, my favourite line is:
“The unicorns don’t look realistic enough.” – Client
“Could we try a darker black?”- Client

hey hey hey guys, wow, can’t believe its been a month since we’ve updated this blog! HOLY SHIT! All of our hardwork of bringing in traffic went away! Now we have to start all over again. Kinda. This shows that in the world of social-web space, hard work, consistency and perseverance is important. In fact, it is important in our daily lives. Changes happens because of hardworking-consistent group of people.
Never doubt a small group of thoughtful, commited citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
– Margaret Mead
Having said that, I’d like to top off this wonderful Friday morning with this video of what a small group of people can do to change so many lives. Enjoy
Thanks Swiss Miss and Charity Water.
In the future Lucideas gonna have our very own band. The picture taken during their practice after office hour. The first song that they were practicing was Wonderwall by Oasis. Hope to hear the full version of the song from them soon. Go Girl!!
Ok, the last time i remember getting so excited about an advertising-related show is The Gruen Transfer. Now there’s gonna be a movie, called Art & Copy, directed by Doug Pray (SURFWISE, SCRATCH, HYPE!), it reveals the work and wisdom of some of the most influential advertising creatives of our time — people who’ve profoundly impacted our culture, yet are virtually unknown outside their industry.
Unfortunately, they do not provide video-embedded links for this trailer, so I guess you just have to view it here.
Thanks, SwissMiss. Text taken from Art & Copy.
here’s a teaser of something we’re putting together for a client, check them out in the market soon 😉
Having came up with this idea, I feel like a proud father to a newborn. (CONGRATS CK of Ben’s Bitches!)
After spending a couple of hours making corrugated lines BY HAND! Here it is my friends, me artwork.
Well, the idea behind this artwork is to give front covers extra function, user-interaction. Instead of just looking pretty these corrugated front covers can be used by readers as a frame to capture the essence of Malaysia. Also, with the headline up front, its a bloody good marketing tool to spread brandnames via user-generated content sites such as Facebook and Flickr.
So marketeers/authors/magazine owners, what are you waiting for?! GET YOUR BITCH ASS UP and contact us!
ps: I still hope that Juice magazine would use this idea for their new magazine cover, or anyone who is interested in making their front cover rock ass!

STEAL OUR IDEAS is a blog by art director and writer Jon & Adam’s unproduced ideas.
I really like the concept of giving now.. never gave it much thought. This shift of mentality is important as I see that this will be the next important thing for marketeers and entrepreneur. In fact, I receive this email from Alex Lam couple of months ago, went through it but never gave it much thought about it. Anyway, it is about changing trends of marketing a brand and its titled appropriately as, GENERATION G.
Anyway, back to S.O.I, this blog just started since it only have 1 and 1/4 page but already it captured my attention of their approach in creating ideas and where they get it from. ZERO BOUNDARIES. I have to remind myself of this. I love this site and will definitely bookmark it. What say you?
Saw this picture when I was reading an article of famous people that admitted smoking weed. So I googled up “Obama, smoking pot” and found this link from TIME Magazine.
Really interesting to see the fun and relaxed side of the first black president. What say you?
Recently, news had been spreading on the net that a 91-minute documentary, fittingly titled, BANANAZ will be release on June 1st. This is the documentary (behind the scene) trailer I found from My Modern Met. Looks interesting. What say you?
