Google TV

Wednesday I was at the Marcom event in Amsterdam and was introduced to Google TV. After the presentation I asked myself; will Google TV do to the TV industry, what Apple did to the music industry with introduction of iTunes? I think they just might. What do you think?

New typography for Inspirationspam

New on my blog is the typography I’m using. It’s generated by a new plug-in: Typekit, witch can be used either on a Worpress blog or on any other type of website.
Typekit is an easie way to use real fonts on the web. It’s a subscription-based service for linking to Open Type fonts from some of the major type foundries. The fonts are served from a global network on redundant servers.

Every major browser now supports the ability to link to a font. That means you can write a bit of CSS, include a URL to a font file, and have your page display with the typography you expect. For designers and developers, this is a significant step forward. No longer will you need to trap your content in images or Flash. But Fonts have copyrights.
And that’s where Typekit comes in. They’ve developed a web-only font linking license with the major type foundry’s. And they’ve build the technology platform to host free and commercial fonts.

Inspirationspam is now using the VERA SANS by Bitstream as bodytype…

… and LFT ETICA DISPLAY WEB by TypeTogether for the headings.

Wonderful Wonderwall interface

And since we’re on the subject of innovative and cool user interfaces (The New York Times Innovation Portfolio), before we were interrupted by the worst policyical campaign in the Netherlands… Check out the this website of wonderwall. Very nice!

Check out the Wonderwall website. You’re gonna need a pretty serious bandwidth though.

CK augmented reality

Here’s an augmented reality web campaign of  Calvin Klein (I think it was in collaboration with GQ magazine). And I’ve tried it and it worked. It’s a little ‘blocky’ and it’s clearly a technology in progress. Watch the demo video and you get the idea. Or try it out you’re self, the website will explain you how. You also gonna need a webcam.

The smel of water

Italian fashion brand Replay comes with a fragrance line for man and women. That’s nothing new, witch fashion brand doesn’t have its own fragrance? But there are 2 special things about this one. The product itself and the communication design around the brand.

The product concept is that in the morning you spray on the fragrance and during the rest of the day, you can refresh it by dropping a drop of water on your skin and the fragrance is instantly revitalized.

And then there is the design of the website and commercial I completely fell in love with. Great job how the concept of the product is translated in the communication.

Buy followers


Not enough followers on twitter? Don’t worry; you can buy them! (1000 followers! Order now! only $87) That sounds a bit sad of course, like you don’t have any friends. But it’s meant as a social media marketing tool to reach audiences via twitter.
