On Facebook’s Little Red Book
Office of Ben Barry: Ben Barry – Facebook’s Little Red Book
From the blog of a Facebook designer himself, check out these photos of the book that is handed out to every new employee at Facebook. The book outlines the company’s mission, history and culture in a beautiful way – with hard-hitting and inspiring prose, and a beautiful, simplistic design.

On Delta’s Latest In-flight Safety Video
Delta has cleverly put together more than 20 of the best Internet memes in their soon-to-be-released in-flight safety video. With this video, future Delta passengers are certainly guaranteed a walk down web culture memory lane, a couple of laughs and a higher chance of strapping up!

“What happens when Delta calls on Nyan Cat, Lana (Overly Attached Girlfirend), and the Taylor Swift Goat to star in a video detailing safety procedures on Delta flights? Hilarity.”
On Cadbury’s New Vegemite Chocolate
The Guardian: Brigid Delaney – Vegemite chocolate taste test: Is Cadbury’s new block awesome or evil?
Salty vegemite deliciousness with caramel undertones… or palatably offensive? The new limited edition Dairy Milk with Vegemite has been released, and I for one am not jumping on this yeast-made bandwagon. Normally, I would huff sugar directly out of the bag, but this is one sweet ‘treat’ I wanted to spit out and replace with anything else (including broccoli, kale, lentils- LITERALLY ANYTHING). But Cadbury has created something that will last longer than an offensive aftertaste- a marketing talk-point that will bring them new publicity for months to come. Clever move Cadbury. Disgusting, but hey- we’re still talking about it.

“Combining Australia’s most beloved breakfast spread with milk chocolate seems like the fever dream of a chocoholic who is looking for an excuse – any excuse – to start the chocolate eating early.”
