Check out their interactive website designed by For Office Use Only. “It’s a look at how different facets of the world—from energy to education to sustenance—affect each other, and how we can keep things in balance.”

FINDINGS I just came across this awesome soda can while surfing the web called OK Soda. Apparently, it was a soft drink created by The Coca-Cola Company in 1993 that targeted the Generation X demographic with unusual advertising tactics. I want. I want.
MAGAZINE I was looking through the Nation Magazine Cover Archive and came across a collection of Bazaar magazines. I was surprised to see that they changed a few mastheads into a san serif typeface. I’m so glad they went back to their original serif logo.
