“Bugün Ne Giysem?” (“What Shall I Wear Today?”) is a TV show in Turkey where female contestants dress themselves and get critique from judges (fashion icons/designers) who decide whether they go through to the next round or not. The show claims to be in search of “the most stylish woman in Turkey”. The judges also claim that they are educating the viewers while giving critique to the contestants and thus leading Turkish women towards a better-looking future. As an avid fan of the show, however, I observe that their method is flawed. I propose that they may do better in their idealistic task if they take one step further in their educating. Now I don’t know a thing about fashion or clothing, but I’ll make my case as a (visual communication) design professional and you’ll see how it relates.

This is something I wrote on my blog and Elif Ayiter asked me to share it here; I believe it may be fun/useful for design students. Read more here.

Very cool project created by Section Design, UK for Wired Italy. More images here. Also check out the Flickr set to see how the whole project came together:

Very cool indeed…

A nice ad campaign to raise funds and awareness for the Singapore Prostate Cancer Research Fund. by TBWA / tequila initiative. Feels like HSBC campaign (the one with doubled images with changing texts) but i got to tell ya, seeing queen next to Queen is just moving… in the end, it’s all about the mustache. Follow this link for the page.

Hello,

I stumbled upon some interesting data visualization from 1874. The data might be controversial but still, you may want to take a look. It gets interesting after 30.th screen shot.

“Renowned graphic designer Michael Bierut claims that he’s not creative. Instead, he likens his job to that of a doctor who tends to patients – “the sicker, the better.” Digging into the 86 notebooks he’s kept over the course of his career, Bierut walks us through 5 projects – from original conception to final execution – extracting a handful of simple lessons (e.g. the problem contains the solution; don’t avoid the obvious) at the foundation of brilliant design solutions.” From the99percent.com

Please do not be shy and do this. Maybe start off with some of the less ambitious ones at first and then proceed to the more sophisiticted ones at a later time, when you have more accomplishments as yound designers.

You will hopefully get good comments and feedback, which will help improve your work for sure.
