Design Has No Limits

The World’s Largest (Fake) Fish Tank

This is currently the World's Largest Fake Fish Tank. When it comes to electronics, architecture and all-around cool geekery, Asia doesn’t screw around. During the construction of a new mall in Beijing, planners decided to construct the world’s largest fake fish tank. This is a 250m by 30m LED screen installed 80 feet in the air, and impressively costs 32 million dollars. WOW. 

Underwater Appeal


While looking for Inspiration for my "underwater" design concept on my project, I found this beautiful floor design! Mare Floors GmbH, a German-based large format printer, used its UltraVu® 2600 to print a vibrantly colored and unusual underwater floor design for leading Madrid advertising agency, Estudio Cruz. The floor was installed by first applying a plastic layer to the existing concrete, and then bonding the self-adhesive vinyl graphics to the base-layer. Glass beads and crystals were adhered to the printed image and a matte covering was overlayed. The final touch was the installment of a special hard-wearing transparent film that helped to create a look of shimmering water.

How You Fold Matters

This entire weekend I have been searching for inspirational design ideas which coincide with Easter weekend. This morning in church I heard something really cool so I think this might possibly sort of work...

In the empty tomb, the head covering over the body of Jesus Christ was now neatly "folded napkin". Among Jews of the time a master would let his servants know whether he was finished eating or coming back to the table by the way he left his napkin. If he tossed it aside, he was finished. If he folded it, he was was not finished and would return. John 20:7 says "...and the napkin,that was about His head, not lying with the linen, but wrapped together in a place by itself." The hidden message in the story is that by laying his "napkin" aside and neatly folding it...Jesus was saying he was coming back! How cool is this!

So in the design world, I would say it is pretty important to know how to place and fold your napkin when you are enjoying/preparing and event/meal. Thus ends my lecture.
