With the stigma that is attached to littering in general, I have always been baffled by the disregard smokers have for disposing  of cigarette butts by just throwing them on the ground. To combat this, local Austin studio, The Butler Bros produced this wonderfully creative spot for Legacy’s initiative to fight this kind of litter. The New York Times wrote an article about the overall fight as well. I recommend a quick read.


Good friend and great Austin based photographer, Adam Voorhes, has released some photographs from his project photographing malformed human brains. They are part of a collection of human brains collected by the Texas State Mental Hospital about 4 decades ago. Check out the series as well as the explanation Adam did after the jump.

Right before SXSW, SoundCloud contacted us and asked if we could help them with designing an interactive installation piece for their SXSW Creator Clubhouse. After some brainstorming, our team came up with the idea of creating a massive wall of bungee cords to represent sound. Using a SoundCloud gobo, we projected their logo on it at night. Check out a timelapse and photographs of the installation as well as video of people interacting with it after the jump.

This Life On Mars video by Lukas Vojir is pretty snazzy. I don’t know about you, but it definitely makes me want to move to Mars. This whole Earth thing is kinda played out. The Red Planet is where it’s at.
