Fun packaging design and concept.
When Warren Buffett announced his secretary pays a higher tax rate than he does, millions of Americans took notice. So recently, The White House introduced The Buffett Rule Calculator — which answers the question: How many millionaires paid a lower effective tax rate than you? The number ain’t pretty, you guys.
If the goal of this widget is to instigate conversation about tax fairness, it feels like a smart move.

Beyoncé has finally taken to Twitter and Tumblr http://www.beyonce.com/inspirations
2012 has been dubbed, by smarter people than I, the Year of Tumblr. In Queen Bey fashion, Ms. Knowles leads the charge by completely revamping her web presence, starting with an RFP to seek out an agency partner to design her new site. http://adage.com/article/digital/digital-marketing-beyonce-unveils-revamped-web-presence/233955/
Bey ended up working with Designed Memory http://www.designedmemory.com/ and the result is a veritable rabbit-hole of inspiration, video, and photos of baby Blue and her glowing new mom, sans makeup. And even a shot of Hov (that’s Jay-Z to the unwashed masses) cradling his tiny girl.
The new web presence transforms Beyoncé from glittering consumer good to wife, sister, mother, and human incarnation of overall genetic blessedness.

Think left and think right
and think low and think high.
Oh, the thinks you can think up
if only you try!

This is an example of a plugin called Trapcode Particular for After Effects that we are purchasing.
“There are a lot of interruptions in the modern office. It is interesting to me that the places where people are supposed to learn things, like a library or school or classroom — they’re always quiet. We treat our office like a library.”
