NOH8 Campaign

Inspired by Robert Indi­ana’s LOVE sculp­ture, I orig­i­nal­ly designed it as dona­tion-fundrais­er for the “No On 8” cam­paign. Due to its flu­id Design mean­ing and impli­ca­tions, it can be uni­ver­sal­ly used to express your intol­er­ance to any form of “Hate” (H8).

If you are inter­est­ed in pur­chas­ing t-shirts, bags, hats, but­tons, etc. with the NOH8 Design, I have set up a store­front with the NOH8 prod­uct line over at:

Par­tial pro­ceeds from this prod­uct line will be donat­ed towards the cam­paign against Propo­si­tion 8.1

In the mean­time, spread the word… http://justamemo.com/noh8

Update: There seems to be a NOH8 Cam­paign (a pho­to­graph­ic silent protest). More info here.

  1. Here is my stance on Prop 8, and why I’m against it. []

Muji Chronotebook

This Chronote­book from Muji is a fresh con­cept. It was designed by Wong Kok Keong (Orcade­sign, in Sin­ga­pore) and won a Judges’ Prize in Muji’s Inter­na­tion­al Design Awards #2 (May 15 to July 31, 2007).

Diary sched­ules are arranged in lines and grids, which are dif­fi­cult to see and has lit­tle flex­i­bil­i­ty. This note­book makes it clear, intu­itive and easy to plan and see your dai­ly sched­ules.

Cool Hunting’s brief write-up on it gives us a qual­i­ta­tive insight on how use­ful it can be, and how dif­fer­ent it can be to what we have been used to:

Beige, min­i­mal, with round­ed cor­ners and just small enough to fit in your pock­et, the Chronote­book has trade­mark Muji aes­thet­ic appeal. The clock, locat­ed in the cen­ter of an open page, is divid­ed in halves by the mid­line of the book—the left hand white graph­ic rep­re­sents AM, while the dark graph­ic on the right is PM. Not only does the lay­out illus­trate our cir­ca­di­an nature but it forces you to orga­nize tasks accord­ing to the time of day they need to be done. Over­all, it’s easy to look at, sim­ply com­pre­hend­ed and accom­plish­es a design feat by adding a small fea­ture (a more log­i­cal way to break up your day) that has big rewards in func­tion­al­i­ty.

Any­ways, thought I’d share with those of you look­ing for a new way to orga­nize or log your day, etc.
