The Oregon-based photographer Carli Davidson captures adorable photos of dogs as they shake off water, in full slow motion - fur flying, chins flapping and eyes crossed! Cuteness overload.

A novel idea (3)

Resting just outside of Bolzano in the foothills of the Dolomites Mountains in Northern Italy is one of the notable creations from architect Peter Pichler. Two homes, designed as vacation residences, each feature two bedrooms nested inside a minimalist white interior – characterized by skylights, floor-to-ceiling windows, and of course personal gardens. The most striking feature of the structure though, is the glass facade – clad in glossy black aluminum to reflect the surrounding foliage. The curvilinear elevation accentuates said effect, providing extensive views of the environment while, from the outside, blending in said setting.

A Novel Idea (2)

Turkey-based electrical engineer and graphic designer Tolga Girgin puts a unique twist on the art of calligraphy with his beautifully scripted letters (2D) that appear 3D. Many of his creations may look like they were crafted from strips of paper that were cut and folded to pop off the page, but the words are all hand-drawn, anamorphic illusions that rely on carefully rendered shadows and flat forms viewed from exact perspectives.

A Novel Idea (1)

If you bike often, then it might be a good idea to take all that extra energy you’re creating and put it to good use. The Siva Cycle ATOM, is a lightweight bicycle generator and rechargeable battery pack will power virtually any electronic or mobile devices via USB and, as you ride, it harnesses the kinetic energy you generate. So it will keep on charging as you keep on pedaling!

Animalistic (5)

Artist Kendra Haste uses the ubiquitous galvanized wire and transforms it into life-like sculptures of wild animals. By layering, fraying, and sometimes painting it, she’s able to mimic the anatomical appearance of creatures both large and small. Haste masterfully crafts the wire so that even subtle muscle definition is visible. And while she highlights solid forms, Haste also manipulates the material to look as fluffy as a lion’s mane. It’s these many characteristics that make wire the perfect medium for her. “No other material I have ever used has been able to suggest the sense of movement and life, of contour and volume, the contrasts of weight and lightness, of solidity and transparency - values that I find in my natural subjects,” she explains in an artist statement.

Animalistic (4)

The world has spoken and it's declared the quokka, the happiest, most photogenic animal on the planet. Taking the Internet by storm is the hashtag #quokkaselfie which shows the small marsupial posing for the camera, with humans, while donning its most charismatic grin. Though it bears a slight resemblance to its cousin the kangaroo, the quokka is arguably cuter, with a round body and fluffy ears. And, of course, who can ignore that smile? Interestingly, the quokka, which is about the size of a domestic cat, has no fear of humans. This is most evident in all those fun selfies. In the wild, you'll find these adorable animals on some smaller islands off the coast of Western Australia, largely at Rottnest Island. Quokkas usually spend their days sleeping and resting under shady bushes or dense vegetation. They can also be seen eating; their diet consists of grass, leaves, seeds and roots. But judging from the Instagram photos cataloged at #quokkaselfies, these charming creatures don’t seem to mind pausing for photos with the occasional tourist either. In fact, they look rather elated.

These cracked me up! They are Rodney Pike's work, an awesome set of celebrity photo-manip caricatures, where Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is inserted in traditional paintings.

To celebrate the recent Valentine's Day, Dezeen has teamed up with UK studio Dorothy to give readers the chance to win one of five posters (modelled after the periodic table) filled with suggestive vocabulary. Have you figured out the in-bed chemistry? =D

25 years ago (not this exact day), a little graphics editing program named Photoshop was born. Fast forward a few decades and now we're living in a world where surreal-looking images are all around us. As part of the celebration, Adobe has launched a search for 25 of the most creative visual artists under the age of 25. I don't know where the modern art world would be without it.

It is natural to think that when a company offers excellent product and/or services, they will have a winner and the business will grow manifold and succeed. More often than not, they end up falling flat on their faces bewildered at the failure. Why did it not work? Which part of the product or service did it go wrong?


In the perfect world, the doctor is able to heal people merely by providing precisely the right treatment on just the right day. Or the lawyer, winning the case because he presented the most cogent, rational argument and they would go on to be very successful.


It doesn't work that way.


The patient responds to medicine when he believes in the doctor who prescribes it because he has been to this same doctor since he was a kid over 30 years ago. He likes the way the doctor spends time explaining the medication regime as well as giving the reassuring pat on the back and asking how his sister is and how he will celebrate his upcoming birthday.


The client is far more likely to applaud and support your work because of your dedication, effort and relationship building. Not just the product and/or service itself.

I love how the whole place is so rustic and cosy. Every item, furniture or carpentry has a story behind it revolving around sustainability and/or supporting the local community merchants, craftsmen and etc. If you take time to interact with the owners they will show you their little organic garden, tell you their story of how the place came to be and also direct you to the interesting gems of JB. The bedrooms are themed with great attention to the detail. This totally does not feel like any B&B I have stayed before overseas and will will definitely leave an great impression for sometime to come.
