Definition Example

Last year before the droid phone was released they went through an ad campaign defining the droid through how it is unlike the iPhone.

Good Writing Sample

I liked this writing piece because it points out foods that break the norms of cooking and shows exceptional examples of each. Like the raw chicken dish offered in new York.

Bad Food Photo

This is my first time posting via phone so if it turns out awful let me know. For bad food photography I chose this picture because I feel that the crisp edges of the cheese overlapping what appears to be a blurry image of eggs is not appetizing. I had to be extra picky because food network magazine has some great food pictures but the contrast of crisp to blurry here did not work for me.

 This marks the first time that MoMA has added a piece of typography as well as the first free acquisition they have made.

Ray Lewis's Old Spice Commercial

My new blog felt all lonely so I decided I need to write another little blurb.

Ray Lewis recently aired in a commercial for Old Spice, watch here:

This isn't as good as the "I'm on a horse" Old Spice ad, and while I love seeing one of our Ravens get national exposure, the advert falls short.  Ray does great, but this commercial feels more forced for oddity's sake than previous ads.  Old Spice has a nice campaign strategy but I feel they went a step too far into the strange with this one.
