Help Wanted and When Internet Memes Infiltrate the Physical World

Help Wanted and When Internet Memes Infiltrate the Physical World

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of May 7th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

Help Wanted: Advice forums provide catharsis by breaking taboos around requesting help. The advice is often beside the point.

When Internet Memes Infiltrate The Physical World: Deplorable frogs and “nasty women” aren’t just online for comic relief. They’re central to how people engage with political issues.

Why the Phrase ‘Late Capitalism’ Is Suddenly Everywhere: An investigation into a term that seems to perfectly capture the indignities and absurdities of the modern economy.

Design In An Age of Artificial Intelligence: Rather than panicking, designers should consider how they could become more empowered with the rise of AI-assisted design.

Products

Relevant: An app that responds to the problem of fake news by offering a tool to vet articles through community voting.

Highlight: Physical, paper books with conductive pages, allowing you to “highlight” text.

Jelly: A mini-sized phone with full features of Android 7.0 Nougat and also the first of its kind supporting the ultra-fast 4G network

Visuals

Over 200 Free Art Books Released Online By The Guggenheim: Delve deep into art history with Holzer, Picasso, Lichtenstein, Rothko and many more.

Tate Etc Magazine Redesign: Designed by Ard, a young London-based studio comprising Guillaume Chuard and Daniel Nørregaard, the revamp aims to herald the magazine’s “maverick position”

6 Bots That Deliver Science And Serendipity: Not all Twitter bots are trying to spam, hack or peddle you fake news. Some are works of creativity, programmed to tweet diagrams of imaginary bird migrations or haikus composed of words scavenged from surveys of marine mammals.
