#98; New Website etc

In attempting to update my website I somewhat broke it, so it's now been updated with a shiny new wordpress layout. Lots of new design work up there, too, so go check it out:

Other things:

This is a lovely video explaining a really interesting idea. Watch it.

That's all for now - nothing spectacular today. Updates to the Website soon, hopefully.

Starbucks are updating their logo:

So much more simple and elegant, I'm a big fan

This is quite cool, but mostly just reminds of the fantastic Arcade Fire thing from last year.

And finally, wicked good Lurpak ad:
