Chicken: High Art, Low Calorie is a fresh (or at least still warm) project by Siâron Hughes, showcasing the graphic vernacular of fried chicken vendors in the UK.   Hughes, a talented designer and illustrator, did not stop at cataloguing the star-spangled array of signage.

Samsung “BeatBox” M3200 Review

About a week or so ago I received the Samsung M3200 to review. If I have to be honest I wasn’t expecting much from this little mobile.

Features: The M3200 is a 96.5 x 46.9 x 16.9 mm mobile that weighs around 101g. The screen resolution is…

Club Tropicana Rebrand Failure : Drinks – 20%

  Last week AdAge reported that Tropicana’s sales shrank 20% at the start of the year before rebranded packaging was pulled.

Sales of refrigerated orange juice across the board only dipped 5% in the same period – 1 January to 22…

It is a good looking phone with many people confusing it for an iPhone at first.…

LG KT610 Review

I’ve been lucky enough to source a LG KT610 to review for a few days from a friend’s father. Although this cellphone great from the outside thats about where it ends. The KT610 is a rather large disappointment in my eyes and here’s why. Lack of Features: Maybe I’m busy used to seeing a business class phone packed with features but the KT610 doesn’t have a lot of them. Although is has QWERTY keyboard, its…
