A Bit To Do About Respect.


 

François-Michel Liliane

R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Everybody wants it but not nearly as many people want to be the first to give it. Isn’t it the root of all arguments? The staple of all companies? The reason friendships and relationships end?  Respect is a universally understood value but not universally given. There are some people that believe respect is a two way street in which both cars should be traveling at the same speed. Then there are people that believe they drive Ferrari’s and should not abide by speeds even resembling their neighbors’. (Meaning they do not believe respect is mutual give and take).  The biggest error in the comprehension of respect is when people assume it is just given.  People want to receive it but are always hesitant to give it. Remind you of anything? Money.

Funny the way that everything in life comes full circle; everybody wants money right? The more money you have, the more respect you attain. Even if somebody does not agree with what you think or feel or say or do, if you have a significantly greater amount of money than them in your bank account chances are they are definitely going to respect you. Think of homeless people on the street- do they usually get respected? The unfortunate reality is that they don’t. But if that was a business man on the ground texting on his iPhone and you accidently tripped over him you would probably be more likely to apologize to him as opposed to if you tripped over the scruffy looking dude that looked like he brushed his hair with a sneaker.

Michel Edward

 

What was one of the main lessons we were taught as young adults? First impressions are everything. The last thing anybody wanted was to be looked at foolishly upon first glance. Because if people do not think you are a respectable individual, that will completely change their response and their mannerisms with you. The absolute last thing you want is to be seen as somebody that does not deserve respect.  As you grow into an adult and begin to realize that it is not about what you know but who you know, your projection of self image will drastically change. Your decisions that seemed concrete at 16 to do whatever you wanted and to “express yourself” however you saw fit become significantly less realistic.

Alain Antoine

Be sure to put the same type of energy & emotion into the universe that you want to receive. If you want to be respected, respect others. If you want to be appreciated, be sure to appreciate others.

And remember; 

life will always come full circle-no matter what.

A Notebook That Blows All The Rest Out Of The Water.


grenade01_web grenade02_web

Here, a grenade which may typically be viewed as a symbol of violence is converted to a tool for peace. Our creativity and knowledge expressed through words and sketches are the best means to get our points across, not through force and/or violence – a strong message conveyed by the designer. Extending the lines from the cover grenade, pages inside have identical light grey plaid patterns to make sketches and notes more organized. First page has a “1 Second” sign to remind us that time is ticking; use it efficiently.  If you’re in the mood for some danger, you can grab one here.

Custom Shades For A New Age.


Because most of us wear the same pair every day, we often have a deeper attachment to our sunglasses than other fashion accessories. They’re a really a good indicator of someone’s personality.  That’s why the customizable Crafty glasses are so great- finally, you can create your own design to express your unique individuality.  The material is prepped to take common paint and markers and each side of the lenses are covered with a protective film that can be removed when you’re done.  Get ‘em here.

Graffiti In A New Form.


Graffiti Analysis is an extensive ongoing study in the motion of graffiti. Custom software designed for graffiti writers creates visualizations of the often unseen gestures involved in the creation of a tag. Motion data is recorded, analyzed and archived as Graffiti Markup Language (.gml) files, a specifically formatted XML file designed to be a common open structure for archiving gestural graffiti motion data.  So for all the non-nerds reading this post, what the computer talk boils down to, is an amazing visual experience that amplifies the talent of the already incredible graffiti artists who get to use this technology. Check the method below.
