Tesco Home Plus

Here's a smart and awesome idea: Tesco Home Plus, a grocery chain in Korea, devised a way for people to buy groceries while waiting for the subway. They've created graphics that look like supermarket aisles along the station walls. People can use their phones to scan QR codes printed on each "item" in the aisle, which adds the item to their cart. They can then pay and have their groceries delivered to their house. It's like FreshDirect on steroids!

Tesco's argument is that because Koreans are hard workers, they have little time to do their grocery shopping. This system allows for an efficient use of time. Read more here.

Guinness Genius

This ad by Frank Anselmo for Guinness is old (2001), but I've never come across it, and it's pretty brilliant. The matches emulate the look of a pint of Guinness. Read more about his work here.

Tunes for you.

A new playlist for you...admittedly a bit of a mishmash on this one.

Below are some pictures of the recent letterpress workshop I took through the Type Directors Club and the end result: a letterpress version of my business card.
