Reebok: Be More Human.


 


Reebok #BeMoreHuman—Working with Venables Bell + Partners I created a hand-drawn typeface that could be adapted by other designers to form distinctive lettering work for their new Reebok #BeMoreHuman campaign. I only created the typeface with many alternatives Venables Bell + Partners created the photography, layouts, lettering and other adaptations.  The campaign was celebrating strong women who have made positive changes to the world in unique ways. It featured stars Gal Godot, Ariana Grande, Gigi Hadid and others who encourage people to “Be the best possible version of themselves physically, mentally, and socially.”

The Wonderfully Creative Caity Costa.


Caity Costa and yours truly… (the world famous DJ Storm) had the pleasure of working with one another the other day, and believe me when I tell you that once you that after working in music studios for over a decade, I know talent when I hear it.  Aside from being a pleasureful and peaceful woman, Caity has a deluge of music that neither myself, nor the folks at my shop looking forward to hearing, and working with her on.  Take a gander at some of her photos below, and if you’d love to hear what she has to perform, you can check out all of her work by clicking right here.

Some of the most amazing visuals come from the most unexpected places.  The Olab Coiffeurs Salon in Montreal has an incredible marketing campaign that not only shows off their hair styles, but the prowess of the make up artists as well.  From the backgrounds, to the “clothing” patterns, this collection is amazing.  Check the method below.

Adult Stars Read Their DM’s Out Loud.


The email, Instant Message, and Direct Message (or DM for short) has been the bane of many females existence since A.O.L. was a thing.  “Sliding into the DM’s” is a recent term, but it refers to something as old as time, an interested party privately contacting you in order to achieve some manner of sexual goal.  Honestly, this is all a way to politely say that sometimes people are reaching out just trying to f*ck, and no one gets this more than individuals in the adult film industry.  Some of their horror stories are incredible, check the method below.

When it comes to Italian/Australian tri-lingual, bi-sexual models, who go out of their way to stand for something positive, Stefania Ferrario is on the top of my list.  The stunningly beautiful model caught our attention during her #DropThePlus campaign, which she used make people more aware of the fact that the modeling term “Plus Sized” can be extremely damaging to minds of young girls.  Stefania also shaved her head in 2012 to prove that bald is beautiful and to raise funds and awareness for cancer, alopecia and trichitillomania (an OCD disorder that leads to suffers pulling out their own lashes, eyebrows and head hair).  She feels as though in society today there is far too much emphasis placed on hair, and that girls should not feel any less feminine or attractive for being bald or having extremely short hair for it can be just as sexy. And when you want hair you can easily have fun playing with wigs?  Be it short hair, or long, we appreciate both Stefania’s work, and the positivity her work stands for.  Check her out.

Fergie – M.I.L.F. $


Fergie debuted the video for her latest single “M.I.L.F.$.” on Friday, featuring Kim Kardashian West, Chrissy Teigen, Ciara and other hot celebrity moms. And like most stars, it didn’t take long for behind-the-scenes clips to start popping up on social media.  The video, which Fergie tells Entertainment Weekly in a statement is “about empowering women who do it all,” actually comes with a baked-in digital spin, as the acronym stands for “Moms I’d Like to Follow.”

“They have a career, a family, and still find the time to take care of themselves and feel sexy,” Fergie told EW.  Check the video out below.

The Lovely Ms. Iskra Lawrence. One Of The Hottest Women On Instagram.

Iskra Lawrence is may be one of the very many lovely women who have Instagram entranced, but she is quite unique in more ways than one.  The 25-year-old model from Worcestershire, England, is technically a plus-sized model in the industry.  But she’s turned that into an asset for herself and others, making a name for herself with realistic ads and empowering female body-image campaigns. She explained the complexities of being labeled a plus-sized model last year to Cosmo.  Check out some more of her photos, and her powerful words below.

2mIgKzX Iskra-Lawrence-634703 IskraPortrait1-640x472 iskra-lawrence-6 MTM1MzA2OTk2NjY4NjgwMjAy

Absolutely every time I’ve ever met anyone and I’ve told them I’m a plus-size model, [I get told I’m not plus-size enough] without fail! Even when I’ve booked jobs and I’m on set, stylists and hair and makeup artists have commented that I don’t look big enough to be a plus model. I try to re-educate them about what a plus-size model means. Many of us lead healthy lifestyles, train in the gym regularly, and are in great shape. We represent a huge range of not only sizes, but also shapes, which I find really beautiful. I’m very proud to say I’m a plus model. I’ve learned to love my body and be proud of all my curves, and I’m so, so grateful every day to be able to work in the industry I love at my natural size.It’s frustrating that society is so set on categorizing everyone. But in the fashion industry it is difficult—most samples of straight-size are a 0 to 4 and plus is 14 to 16. It costs more to produce a range of different sample sizes. It would just be nice if everyone could accept a range of different size models without having to label them all—we are models, not numbers.

Top 10 Female Action-Movie Heroes.


Neytiri avatar

Action movies have been storming the box office since almost the beginning of cinema, and iconic characters have been born from countless movies, and subsequent franchises.  Rating the top 10 action heroes is something any movie goer could probably do off the tops of their heads, but unfortunately female heroines have fewer spots in cinema history.  This being the case, we thought we’d have a go at the top 10 (of many) female movie icons.  Our honorable mention is Neytiri of ‘Avatar’.  James Cameron’s most successful motion picture may be about the dopey human male who gets all of the native Na’Vi killed on the planet Pandora, but we all know that Neytiri is the real hero here. She’s the warrior who always stood by her principles, and as played by Zoe Saldana (with the aid of an army of animators), she embodied a unique new action hero for the modern age.  The following list is IN an order, however, if you think the order should be moved around, feel free to comment, and let us know.

10. Alice – Resident Evil

alice-resident-evil

Of the two female-driven, utterly superficial action movie franchises, Resident Evil has the most personality. (Sorry, Underworld fans.) Milla Jovovich has been bounding from one ridiculous, zombie-fighting, clone-army forming situation to the next over the course of this ludicrous series, and it only gets sillier – and more entertaining – with every passing sequel. She still embodies unadulterated bad-assery in every film.

S

9. Foxy Brown – Foxy Brown

foxy-brown

Foxy Brown’s boyfriend was a secret agent, but when he’s killed in the line of duty she goes on a one-woman mission of revenge against a vile syndicate, destroying sex traffickers and rescuing their victims. Pam Grier is described as “a whole lotta woman,” and the description fits. She is raw and powerful and is an exemplary vision of what strong, driven (black) female heroines can look like.

S

8. Mindy Macready – Kick Ass

kick-ass

Mindy Macready, aka “Hit Girl,” is a contradiction. She’s a pre-teen martial arts master and mass murderer of bad guys, and that’s kind of awesome, but only if you ignore the fact that her father has brainwashed her into thinking there’s nothing wrong with it. Kick-Ass doesn’t spend much time questioning her state of mind, which makes it rather a superficial film if you think about it, but Chloe Grace Moretz is undeniably fierce and formidable anyway.

S

7. Yu Shu Lien AND Jen Yu – Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

yu-shu-lien-and-jen-yu-crouching-tiger-hidden-dragon

Not one but two great action heroes headline Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning kung fu epic Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Michelle Yeoh represents maturity and grace and Zhang Ziyi represents recklessness and passion. Their fight together is one of the kung fu highlights of the 21st Century, and the two acclaimed actresses bring their characters to vibrant life even when they’re not kicking ass.

S

6. Princess Leia – Star Wars

leia

Princess Leia might need saving in Star Wars: Episode IV, but only once, and she only gets captured because she was being a badass. They bring her to Darth Vader, the most threatening person in the galaxy, and she says “I thought I smelled something” right to his face. Then she proceeds to plan rebel warfare, infiltrate criminal underworlds, strangle Jabba the Hutt to death and take charge in an epic speeder chase. She is anything but a typical movie princess. She is a royal badass, and in the upcoming ‘Force Awakens’ rumor has it, that she’ll be “General Badass”.

S

5. Imperator Furiosa – Mad Max: Fury Road

mad-max-fury-road

Although the Mad Max film is ostensibly about a male action hero, but that gets completely stolen by his female co-star. Mad Max is pretty much just along for the ride in Fury Road, while Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa kidnaps a warlord’s sex slaves and fights off horde after horde of high-octane bastards in her quest to find freedom. Theron explodes off the screen, and so does practically everything else in George Miller’s acclaimed post-apocalyptic thriller.

S

4. The Bride – Kill Bill

kill-bill

Over the course of the two Kill Bill movies, Uma Thurman takes us on a rich and complicated journey of self-actualization, tragic love and violent vengeance. She’s a thoroughly convincing fighter who dispatches an army of masked assassins, but when the time comes to confront the man who wronged her, she can still feel recognizably human emotions. Quentin Tarantino’s films are vast in scope and intimate in nature, and Thurman gives arguably her best performance within them.

S

3. Katniss Everdeen – The Hunger Games

hunger-games

Jennifer Lawrence is building up her action movie credentials (see also: X-Men: First Class and Days of Future Past), but she will always be a legend for playing the reluctant revolutionary Katniss Everdeen in the blockbuster Hunger Games series. She’s comfortable with a bow, uncomfortable with killing, and increasingly confident leading the disenfranchised to war against an apathetic ruling class. Plus she’s a beast with the bow and arrow.

S

2. Ellen Ripley – Alien

ripley-aliens

It was a miracle that Ellen Ripley even survived the first Alien movie. In James Cameron’s sequel, she finally fought back, taking the fight directly to the Alien queen and setting the stage for two more sequels in which she refused to be victimized ever again. Sigourney Weaver remains one of the great action hero icons, regardless of gender.

S

1. Dora The Explorer

XS_logo

JUST KIDDING.

S

1. Sarah Conor – Terminator 2

sarah-connor-terminator-2

Sarah Connor was running from danger throughout the first Terminator movie, and runs right into it in the blockbuster sequel to save her son from yet another killer automaton bent on bringing about the apocalypse. Linda Hamilton convincingly makes the transition from victim to hero, but James Cameron’s film wisely dedicates time to illustrating the unthinkable psychological toll the events of these movies have had on a woman who, prior to these events, as just as normal as you or I.  This is why we specified ‘Terminator 2’ because although she may be a regular 19 year old (Yeah… in the first one for some reason she’s 19 in the script), in the sequel she is a trained military machine, capable of flying off the rails to do whatever is necessary to save her son, and the future.

When Denise became “Miss Waldkraiburg” in 2007, it was only the beginning for the German “Wiesn-Playmate”. She was named the German Playmate of the month of October this year, just in time for the German Oktoberfest to start. Through this opportunity, Mexico’s Playboy also showed interest in the German beauty and they recently did a shoot as well. So, sure enough to say that we will hear and see more from this German model very soon.

Sarah Jean Underwood’s Star Wars Halloween Costumes.


underwood-pbsw25 underwood-pbsw23 underwood-pbsw16 underwood-pbsw13

Former ‘Attack The Show host and Playboy Playmate Sara Jean Underwood features in this funny parody of the sexy Halloween outfit trend. Prepare to feel very confused by sexy Darth Vader, sexy Yoda, and sexy…. Admiral Ackbar.

It’s a trap. The Playboy-produced vid serves as an amusing parody of the various ridiculous sexy takes on character costumes doing the rounds, but it is also an excuse to shoot the lovely Sara Jean Underwood wearing very little. Those sneaky Nerf-herders. To be fair, some of the costumes actually look pretty cool, but sexy Bib Fortuna may haunt your nightmares for some time.
