Don’t buy a train ticket with this app

25 JUL 2011 // public space / danish railways / advertising / apps
Unfinished, ill-considered apps or apps that serve the market better than the use off it. If Apple has a sometimes paranoid restrictive approach to the formalities regarding an app you want to get into the App Store, they may have a comparable little interest in that the app works well. Fortunately, one could say, that should be the developer's task. But not everyone can not live up to this task, which also counts for DSB and the DSB Ticket app.

Your website is (almost) an app

I must admit, it’s (still) cool to have my icon right there on the iPad screen. As an app, yes, but a website can also do the trick. And website based app may sometimes even be a better solution than a native app.

Big Letters Light

9 DEC 2010 // public space / berlin / advertising / typography
Buchstabenmuseum Berlin. Why are these letters so attractive? I don't get an answer at Buchstabenmuseum, but I most certainly get a wish to look after all these servants of the announcements, sofisticated as well as monumental. In may 2010, during the TypoBerlin conference, we put our noses against the window of Buchstabenmuseum at their location in Leipzigstraße near U-bahn Spittelmarkt. Inside there was a wonderland of 3D letters. Unfortunately open only 2 hours, one day a week.
Since then the museum has moved their showroom to a shoppingcenter at Alexanderplatz with apparently and obvious success. Apparently, because the immediate attraction to all these letters is followed by a lot of publicity on the internet – as well as pictures, which you can make sure of on Flickr for instance.

Claim the real mayonnaise. Use Tungsram lightbulbs. Political incorrect ads are being revealed at Vesterport st. Vesterport st (copenhagen – and I know it may not be a station, see “Jyllingevej is no station”) is being cleaned up. And these old ads are reveiled.
