COLOURlovers recently posted a great article on the colours of video games. If you don’t know COLOURlovers, it is a wonderful site dedicated to colour palettes. In their blog they have themed post which will explore the colour palette prevalent in different walks of life. Now anybody who knows me knows I am a total sucker for classic video games (actually, just vieo game in general). I’m tempted to put together some palettes drawn from some modern classics.

In the last few days I have watched a couple of the best TV spots floating around that I have seen for a while. They both have that whimsical, dreamy feel and are potentially overambitious, but are pulled off with style, remarkable art direction and all without the need for more than a couple of words to knock the message home.
Monster – Stork
Tiji – The Balloon

The exhibition will be running at Racks in Lan Kwai Fong for a month or so and will be featuring 28 life size tattoo canvas photo portraits. If you get a tattooed limb out on display you will be rewarded with a free shooter and a photo on the ‘wall of ink’! The whole shebang will be wrapped up with a closing party at CLIQ on July 10th. Head along and check out the work by HK’s finest tattoo artists!

Ever finished up a kick ass design on your Mac, sent it to your PC running client and been told it looked “too dark” on their monitor? Gamma Toggle is a nifty little program that allows you to toggle between various gamma settings to see how your designs look on other operating systems. Though it is no replacement for actually loading your design on a bunch of different computers, it is really handy for getting a real-time idea of how it looks on a standard setting MAC or PC screen from your MAC or PC.
It’s tiny, it’s handy, it’s free so there is no reason why your shouldn’t go get it!
Picked this tip up from the excellent Boagworld podcast.
