facebook makes your selfies bigger
It’s been a year since Facebook decided to redesign their site for users, so that means that it is time to redesign Facebook. The roll-out begins today and focuses on cleaning up the news feed. Images will be bigger, fonts go native, and Comments get their own post from shared stories. No mention of the way ads will look though, but the odd of them getting smaller are probably pretty slim.
flat olives in the garden
If your first thought of Italian food is the Olive Garden, I’m sorry. Your world is about to be rocked. The Olive Garden has launched a new logo. Breathe. Just breathe. Everything is going to be okay. It turns out that their logo is has gone flat and traded in the grapes for olive branches. Not sure that a new logo is going to help in creating the “brand renaissance” the restaurant chain is looking for. Maybe focusing on the food quality would be a better place to start.
put a note on it
Findery. This new app let’s you leave location specific notes about… whatever. There are no star ratings or searching, just seeing what others are saying about that gas station down on the corner. It’s only a matter of time until we see an article on how a guy proposed in a super cute way using the app… so cute.

sweet app, bro
If you're a douche… errr, I mean bro, then this app is for you. The problem is, no bro wants to have to text message his nagging ball and chain when he's out with his bros doing douchey… er, I mean bro-ey things like flirting with younger, hotter chicks. So this BroApp will be your ultimate wingman and do it for you, sending a series of sweet nothings to your girl sporadically throughout the night on your behalf. Sadly, there is likely a huge market for this. Sigh.
home improvement, out of home
Everyone loves a good out-of-home ad that creatively uses it's surroundings to tell a story, like this one from German home improvement chain, OBI. In this super simple execution, they took a small space of older, run down buildings and freshened them up with a little paint, trim, and a couple other little fixes and a sign off of "renovated by OBI". Simple and very effective.
love the smell of garbage in the morning
If you've ever been stuck behind a garbage truck before in traffic, you know how incredibly NASTY they smell. So, you can imagine how difficult this stunt from Saatchi and Saatchi in South Africa must have been, rigging up a garbage truck to look adorably sweet, play sweet music, and emit sweet smells. All of this was to promote Tuffy's scented trash bag line, which "disguises the bad (orders)." Sweet stunt.

Oscar moments, starring adorable kids
Dramatic. Riveting. Enthralling. These are some of the words that could be used to describe this year’s best films and performances. Adorable is clearly not one of them. In an effort to change this, Maggie Storino has posed her precious young daughters as the leads and supporting actors of each Best Picture nominee, developing the Tumblr “Don’t Call Me Oscar”. Turns out the results are almost as memorable at the films themselves.
