Web Wednesdays - Leo Burnett

want inspiration? we love love love this site. it's just fun to interact with. we find ourselves doodling with the pencil tool while surfing through this beautiful portfolio. funny thing is, just moving your pencil around the site, while leaving pencil marks, somehow manages to make the site look that much more interesting and "intended." not many sites these days can make you just say, "wow." you HAVE to check it out.

Toon Tuesday

Toon of the week...we're moving our comic from our uh... monthly/3-monthly schedule to a weekly schedule. check out our archives for past renditions.

foodie friday: clear optometry fro-yo

yes, you read that right! it's an optometry place that sells frozen yogurt (and other tasty treats). we love the concept! (and it works, i went in for yogurt and came out with a nice pair of eye glasses.) better yet, it's one of our favorite fro-yo places here in the sf bay area. the yogurt is surprisingly very good, the portions are generous, and the green tea mochi toppings have the perfect amount of 'chewy freshness'. hmmm.. i feel like heading over there now...

bumble ink invention request#2: Baby Sleeping holder

we humbly request someone invent a baby holder that simulates a person's arms so that newborns can sleep, and allow parents to sleep as well! some babies just can't "do" the crib. oh, and it has to be safe of course, and provide a little heat, and maybe some rocking? don't ask us, just invent, please.

bumble ink invention request#1: Rubber Necking Screen

we humbly request someone invent a "Rubber Necking Screen." This screen is something police or firefighters could put up quickly around an accident (maybe with a printed graphic on the outside saying, "Move along please - Nothing to see here" -- cause seriously, there will be nothing to see). It must then be able to collapse just as quickly after they clear everything up. how much traffic would this ease? ask someone who lives in Los Angeles.
