Creative Sightings 6
Sightings of a very creative nature this month include a cute little printer, animated comic covers, stylish beer bottle labels, first issue cover artwork of famous magazines, shaking dogs photographed, and a bird swinging in a zebra.
Little Printer is a fun product from BERG Cloud, which unsurprisingly is a little printer, though what makes this different is that it outputs custom mini-newspapers. Using your smart phone, you get to subscribe to the type of content you want to read and Little Printer does the rest – sounds rather neat!

Designer and illustrator David Vordtriede set himself a creative exercise of drawing 26 Muppet portraits which correspond to each letter of the alphabet, which he namedThe Muppabet. The end result is a wonderful series of images, beautifully coloured.

Amtrak onboard Wi-Fi Ads
A simple but effective advertising campaign for US train company Amtrak, to show that they now offer free wi-fi on several of their East Coast routes. The work was done by agency Arnold Worldwide, with creative direction from Mick Sutter and illustrations by Andrew Bannecker.

Shake for the camera
Shake is an hilarious series of photographs by Carli Davidson Photography featuring dogs and other pets having a good old shake. The strange expressions frozen in time by the camera are just priceless.

I love this idea by Kerry Callen, to animate various famous comic book covers – brilliant!
