“NIKE have designed several new typefaces for teams playing at this year’s FIFA world cup including two collaborations with renowned graphic designers, wim crouwel (netherlands) and neville brody (england).”
Once upon a time (a handful of months back), I managed the design work on this can. S/O to Stag&Hare, Finished Art, The Coca-Cola Company colleagues who worked on producing this and developing the POS look and feel. A fun collaboration. S/O to LeBron for introducing a really delicious version of Sprite.

Poet and memoirist Maya Angelou died today at the age of 86.
"Mrs. Flowers, a lady in my town, a black lady, had started me to reading, when I was about 8…I was already reading, but she started me reading in the black school and I read all the books in the black school library. She had some contact with the white school, and she would bring books to me, and I would just eat them up. When I was about 11 and a half, she said to me one day — I used to carry a tablet around on which I wrote answers — and she asked me, "Do you love poetry?" I wrote yes. It was a silly question from Mrs. Flowers. She knew. She told me, “You do not love poetry. You will never love it until you speak it, until it comes across your tongue, through your teeth, over your lips, you will never love poetry.” And I ran out of her house. I thought I’ll never go back there again. She was trying to take my friend.
She would catch me and say, “You do not love poetry, not until you speak it.” I’d run away and every time she’d see me she would just threaten to take my friend. Finally, I did take a book of poetry and I went under the house and tried to speak, and could.”

Train yourself to have vision, courage, and determination. These three things, to me, are very important. You have to work with people who have that, and at the same time, you have to have it, so that you can install it on people. You can excite them. You can show them you have a vision. You can show to them what they cannot see. At the same time, you should not have a fear of failure—this is what marketing is all about: fear of failure. Instead, you have to have courage. Courage not to fail, or courage, even, to fail! On top of it, you need to have determination to reach your objectives. Vision, courage, and determination will bring you where you want to go, but without them, it would be a miserable life.
In the follow-up to the group’s 2012 campaign, which saw eight different artists poster over 33 London billboards with original messages, “Brandalism 2014” last week brought 40 different artists to 10 different cities in the U.K., replacing a whopping 365 corporate bus shelter ads with original handmade art—most of which carried a subversive, culture-jam style message.
