                Miami Ad School Student Project: A Simple Solution to help New York’s Empty Libraries (The creators of this idea are students who have no affiliation with the New York Public Library or any public library. This is purely speculative work that was developed as part of a class assignment.) Now that the internet is available almost anywhere, people are able to do “instant research” to learn about anything on their smartphones. The New York Public Library wants to remind New Yorkers that they are still a valuable resource, and a free service. NYPL wants to take your usual subway ads and make them into something fun and entertaining. They want to give New Yorkers something productive to do on the subway instead of their everyday people watching. New Yorkers will be given a free digital book sample to read on their way to work. Once finished they will be informed of the closest libraries so they could finish their story. Underground Library is a fictional student campaign, thought up by Max Pilwat, Keri Tan and Ferdi Rodriguez, three Miami Ad School students. This video explains how the campaign would work if it were adopted by the client. Agency: Miami Ad School Art Directors: Keri Tan & Max Pilwat Copywriter: Ferdi Rodriguez

                  from Timo Added 45.2K 278 15

                  This is Sniff, a soft toy dog in green cotton plush. His carefully crafted exterior qualities don’t reveal that he is anything but a cuddly toy. But wireless technology allows him to ‘sniff’ and react to objects that come close to his nose. By focusing on non-visual interactive qualities such as tactility, sound and vibration, Sniff is designed with the particular needs of children with sight impairment in mind. But Sniff also works for everyone, young and old, where he becomes a companion in play, work and everyday life.

                    How much digital content have you recently experienced from screen? And do you still have an easy and convenient access to many of it? It's not easy to remember all the useful sites you've visited and articles you've read.And it is almost impossible to remember it accidentally - we all tend to forget things that are not in front of our eyes. This is a printer that prints physical links to your digital content. It gives a new degree of freedom to our operations with digital content. Now it is possible to literally give a link to a friend or to make a tangible collection of an articles from a magazines on Ipad. There is no need for cartridges because of Z-INK paper - the paper have pigment inside. And the smooth instant opening of the content is possible because of NFC technology. Both of it is already exists on market. This is my diploma project in the British Higher School of Art and Design in Moscow, product design course.
