Wow! Hope it’s to my liking.

Peek is a new (paid) calendar app for iOS that’s aiming to appeal to the social middle ground of people whose lives don’t consist of non-stop meetings from 9 ’til 9. So not a calendar app for professional calendar nerds, then. The app rethinks the calendar as a gesture-based playground, rather than a spreadsheet-esque chore.
It’s an attempt at designed interaction, with a minimalist interface that incorporates a playful, gesture-based UI — itself flagged up by the cheeky name Peek.
The look and feel of this calendar combines flat design — via rich blocks of colour — with a mischievous sense of dimensionality that allows subtly sign-posted calendar entries to fold open like origami when tapped on and hinge-closed again, simultaneously mocking the lie of flat design while embracing its seamless perfection.
Someone please give Arby’s social media guy a raise! Pharrell chose to wear a bit of a conversation piece to the 2014 Grammys last night – a Vivienne Westwood Smokey-the-Bear-esque hat.
Arby’s capitalized on the uncanny resemblance Pharrell’s hat to its own logo with the hilarious tweet below:
Brands like Pepsi and Hyundai quickly raised flags of approvals. It’s fair to say that we all love Pharrell with all of his genius but hate the hat.
Hilariously funny skit by College Humor – the idea of a real life Google as a guy in an office delivering everyone’s search results.
All this technology is truthfully ruining our social lives. Drop your phones and have a good conversation face-to-face, enjoy a concert upfront & personal, go out to eat without posting your status, anything to regain a sense of being ‘human.’ It feels good.

Ha! The Office Thief is hilarious and plays well off of the addiction to classic Doritos. I do enjoy the ‘Finger Cleaner’ spot because it ties in well with one of the social norms, if you will, of eating Doritos – finger lickin’ clean. However, I honestly do not find it funny; maybe a slight chuckle.
This video salutes all the marketing geniuses out there. Brand Guardians UNITE!
We can all feel a bit moreappreciated thanks to the efforts of the Toronto-based creative shop, Open
Grey has been making huge strides to break down the ultra-conservative (old school, if you will) vibe of agency structure. Coupled with a most anticipated win of the global Gillette (of P&G) business, Grey has grasped the 2013 Global Agency of the Year award. Congratulations, Grey.
Here are a few words from Tor Myhren, Grey’s worldwide chief creative officer…
As Dec. 1 nears Harry’s finds a way to embed itself into the lives of men all across the world. Why not use Harry’s to shave that perverted mustache that you’ve grown so accustomed to throughout Movember?
Thanks, Droga5 for the humorous execution. Haha.
