Liquor Ad Will Make You Cry

When two German film students set out to create a short spec film for liquor company, Johnnie Walker, I bet they never expected over 3 million views--and that's before the project was even sent to the company.
Watch this short, yet stunning ad that will bring you to tears!
Kudos to Daniel Titz and Dorian Lebherz, who came up with the "Dear Brother" spot. Like all good ads, they know how to tell a story and get the audience to react!
What do you think of this commercial?
Omg noooo😱😢
my ♥ hurts now
@T0R1L I was heart broken too! :(.. :(..

'Train to Busan' as Critique of Korean Society
I still haven't been able to see Train to Busan for myself, but I found this article on NPR to be really interesting! It doesn't ruin any plot points (other than the fact that there is a zombie apocalypse which I'm pretty sure we could gather from the trailer...) According to the article: Without giving too much of the story away, the film blames corporate callousness for the death toll. The government covers up the truth — or is largely absent. And the crew? Rather than rescue passengers, it follows the wishes of a businessman. Sewol Ferry Reference: These themes are particularly resonant in South Korea, which in 2014 faced national tragedy after 300 people, mostly teenagers, died when a ferry overturned in the sea. Investigators found the ferry's corporate owners overloaded it to save money. And the captain and crew got into lifeboats without rescuing passengers. News media, toeing the government line, originally reported that everyone survived, blamed rescuers for not working hard enough (when in reality the government refused to let them go into the water and rescue the children), etc. The Korean president's whereabouts on that day are still unexplained. Then the MERS Outbreak: Last year, as Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS, spread in South Korea, the government wouldn't share key information about where patients were being treated, where it started, and how officials would contain the outbreak. The government refused to communicate with the public, so the Seoul mayor had to go against the president and form his OWN plan to fix the problem. As a result, he's now in the running for next president (since Koreans have lost all respect or trust in the current pres) You can read the full piece by NPR right HERE. Has anyone seen this yet?!
Beating The Summer Heat in Las Vegas
Extremely high temperatures are the norm in Las Vegas during the hot summer months. When a thermometer hits the 90s in Las Vegas during the summer, it could mean that humidity and monsoon storms are on their way. However, people in Las Vegas can keep cool with spa treatments, shows that make a splash, chill in bars and restaurants that can keep them relaxed, and water-based activities. Water Park Fun Restaurants and bars in Las Vegas are revamping their swimming pools with new seating options, mobile food trucks, swimming features for all ages, water slides, and private cabanas. Most spas in Las Vegas feature colorful water slides that include speed slide, aqua tube, and mat racer. However, splash zones are only available in selected joints. Most water parks for families feature a wave pool, nine water slides, kid-friendly rivers, and kid’s cove. Kids can have fun in their splash pool that is designed for the younger crowd. New water parks with thrilling attractions and slides are being introduced. For example, water parks featuring the Hoover Half Pipe are a slide of their kind in Las Vegas. You can practice your aerials and kickflips and go from flow riding to bodyboards in the blink of the eye. Water parks with waveform technology feature surfaces that are designed to absorb the impact to help reduce the risk of getting wiped out. Chilly Experiences The chilly wonderlands at Minus5 Ice Experience in Las Vegas are made up of over 100 tons of ice. Besides Arches National Parks and Joshua Tree, bars and restaurants in Las Vegas use tumblers made from ice to serve cocktails. The vodka and caviar in places such as the Red Square are decked with a replica of the Lenin’s beheaded statute. Red Square features the Ice Bar, where guests can take photos of more than 200 vodkas off the beheaded statue of Lenin. Beaches At Mandalay Bay Beach, tourists can stand waist-deep in the wave tool while watching their favorite recording artists. Swimming pool contractors Las Vegas prioritize elevated stages, so there is nothing like getting closer to the stage for a better view. Don’t even think about wearing heels to the Mandalay Bay Beach Resort. Tourists can head back to the sandy beach and sunbathe when they are ready to dry off. You may have to trek through the sand to use the facilities on the beach or get to the restaurant. Frozen Bar The last thing you will probably want to do during scorching days is to sip into a fur coat. With the rise in temperatures, everything from the glasses to the bar and walls will probably be made from ice. No matter how hot it is, your little thighs will likely not stand a chance against frozen seats and walls. Movies You probably have fond memories of yourself diving in a movie theatre. Get ready for a little nostalgia the next time you visit Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Cosmopolitan has transformed its Boulevard Pool’s marquee into a movie theatre for filming dive-in movie series during the summer. Two movies are filmed every Monday as visitors lounge or splash around the poolside. It is no secret that Las Vegas can be extremely hot during the summer. The temperature can rise to 105 degrees, but the city offers a myriad of activities that can help you stay cool. Just because there is less humidity in the desert doesn’t mean that there are no ingenious ways to keep you cool. If being in the club during the day is a little wild for you, Las Vegas offers plenty of low key options such as beaches and hotel pools where you can keep cool and relaxed. You may not be in the water, but the cabana options and mister systems can make you feel comfortable away from home. If you want to feel like a kid or want to take your kids out, Las Vegas offers water-themed amusement parks and wave pools for the little dudes.
삶이 있는 한 희망은 있습니다
저는 사람들이 흔히 말하는 ‘청소 아줌마’입니다. 그리고 때로는 ‘식당 아줌마’이고, ‘파출부 아줌마’라고  저를 부르는 호칭은 계속 늘어납니다. 돈을 벌기 위해 안 해 본 일이  없기 때문입니다. 저는 6년 전 남편과 이혼했습니다. 사업에 실패하여 빚더미에 오른 남편은 저와 아이들까지 빚쟁이들에게 시달리게 할 수 없다며  이혼을 요구했습니다. 모든 빚은 남편이 짊어졌지만  아이 둘과 무일푼으로 남은 저는  그동안 가정주부로 살면서 할 수 있는 일이 많지가 않았습니다. 그렇게 제가 할 수 있는 일이라면  뭐든지 해야 했습니다. 하지만 저희 부부보다 더 상처 입은 것은  바로 어린 자녀들이었습니다. 아빠와 엄마의 힘든 모습을 곁에서 지켜보고 주변의 냉정한 시선을 겪은 아이들은 항상 불안해했습니다. 힘든 일을 마치고 집으로 돌아오면 열 살, 여덟 살 어린아이들이 설거지 빨래까지  해 놓고 퇴근하는 저를 기다리더군요. 그 따스함에 마음이 녹아내릴 정도로 행복합니다. 하지만 한편으로는 이른 나이에 조숙해지는  아이들의 모습에 가슴이 저렸습니다. 가끔은 심성이 곱지 않은 사람들을 만나  나쁜 일을 겪는 경우도 있습니다. 하지만 일이 끝나면 집에서 기다리는  아이들이 있기에 저는 어떻게든 열심히 살 것입니다. 최근 큰 아이의 생일날 남편에게 전화가 왔습니다. 저에게는 미안했는지 차마 하지 못하는 말을 큰아이에게 말하면서 지금 힘들겠지만  엄마를 돕다 보면 분명 가족들이 다시  만날 수 있다고요. 제게 작은 소원이 있다면, 저희 가족들이 다 같이 모여 웃으면서 따뜻한 식사를 하는 것입니다. 언젠가는 그날이 분명 올 것으로 생각하며 저는 살아갈 것입니다. 힘들고 지치고 아프고 괴로워서 모든 것을 내려놓고 그저 포기하고 싶을 때가 있습니다. 하지만 그 어떤 상황에서도, 아무런 힘도 없을 것 같은 연약한 마음에도 작은 소원과 희망이 봄철 새싹처럼 담겨 있는 법입니다.   # 오늘의 명언 삶이 있는 한 희망은 있다. – 키케로 – =Naver "따뜻한 하루"에서 이식해옴.....

'피에타'의 놀라운 디테일
여러분 미켈란젤로의 '피에타'라는 작품을 알고 계신가요 ? *_* 피에타는 이탈리아어로 '슬픔', '비탄'을 뜻하는 말로 기독교 예술의 주제 중의 하나예요. 주로 성모 마리아가 십자가에서 내려진 예수 그리스도의 시신을 떠안고 비통에 잠긴 모습을 묘사한 것을 말하며 주로 조각작품으로 표현한다고 해요 ! (위키백과를 참고했습니다 헤헤) 오늘은 미켈란젤로의 피에타를 함께 감상해보는 시간을 준비했습니다 :) 피에타는 1489년부터 작업을 시작해 일년 뒤인 1499년 완성되었어요 ! 현재는 바티칸의 성 베드로 대성전에 보관되어 있고요. 이 작품을 처음 보면 못 느끼실 수 있지만, 뭔가 마리아가 예수에 비해서 너무 크다는 생각이 안드시나요? *_* 맞습니다 ! 이 작품 속 마리아는 예수보다 2배는 큰 크기로 작업되었어요. 비례 상으로는 맞지 않지만, 미켈란젤로는 작품의 균형미를 주기 위해 일부러 마리아를 크게 표현했다고 해요 ! 핀터레스트에서 가져온 이 작품과 비교하면 확연한 차이를 느낄 수 있죠 ? 자 이제 조금 더 디테일하게 피에타를 감상해봅시다 :) 예수를 안고 있는 마리아의 손가락 디테일과 흘러내리는 옷들의 디테일이 경이로운 수준 ㅠ_ㅠ 원래는 사후 경직으로 딱딱하게 굳어있어야 할 예수의 몸이 (상단의 그림처럼) 부드럽게 늘어져 있네요 ! 미켈란젤로의 피에타 속 마리아의 얼굴은 이전 작품들과 다르게 굉장히 젊게 표현되었어요 이전 작품들 속 마리아의 모습을 잠깐 살펴보자면 . . 미켈란젤로의 마리아와는 다른 느낌이죠 ? 위에 말씀드렸던 부드럽게 늘어진 예수, 마리아의 젊은 얼굴 등 그 동안의 피에타와는 다른 미켈란젤로의 피에타 ! 그의 독창성이 느껴지는 특징들이네요 *_* 실제 사람의 몸을 찍었다고 해도 믿을 정도로 섬세한 묘사 . . 피부 밑으로 보이는 핏줄과 손가락의 관절, 팔뚝의 근육들 ! 그리고 사실적으로 묘사된 손등의 상처까지 . . 이 모든게 대리암으로 만들어졌다니 . . 믿지기 않아요 ㅠㅠ 우와 저 손가락 표현력 좀 보세요 ! ! 손금과 작은 근육과 손톱의 사실성 ! ! (말을 잇지 못하는 너구리 . . ) 예수의 머리카락과 팔근육 표현 좀 봐주시렵니까 . . 이게 우찌 돌이란 말입니까아 . . ? . . ? ? . . 아, 그리고 여기서 미켈란젤로 피에타의 또 다른 특징이 보이죠 ! 바로 예수의 표정입니다 *_* 잠깐 스크롤을 올려 위에 보여드렸던 피에타들을 다시 한번 봐주시겠어요 ? 그리고 다시 이 사진 속 예수님의 얼굴을 본다면 분명한 차이가 느껴지시죠 +_+ 드디어 안식을 취한듯한 예수의 표정 다른 작품들 속 아직 고통을 겪고 있는 듯한 예수와는 다르게 미켈란젤로의 작품 속 예수는 마치 잠깐 잠이 든 아이같이 평온한 표정을 짓고 있어요 :) 피에타는 위에서 바라보았을 때 가장 아름답고 이상적인 구도를 보여줍니다 ! 이유는 바로 애초에 미켈란젤로가 이 작품을 인간들이 보기 위함(정면)이 아닌 신의 관점(천장)을 생각해서 작업했기 때문입니다 *_* 이 작품의 주인공은 오로지 예수였기 때문이죠 . 그리고 이 사실을 아시나요 ? 피에타를 완성한 당시 미켈란젤로의 나이는 . . 24살 역시 천재란 . . . 아 그리고 피에타는 유일하게 미켈란젤로의 이름이 기록되어 있는 작품입니다 ! 여기에 관련된 이야기를 해드리자면 . . ㅎ_ㅎ 미켈란젤로의 피에타가 완성되고 세상에 공개되면서 이 작품은 엄청난 찬사를 받게 됐어요 . 하지만 ! 사람들은 이 작품을 미켈란젤로가 만들었다는 사실을 전혀 알지 못했고, 그는 한 밤중 교회에 몰래 잠입해 마리아의 옷깃에 자신의 이름을 각인했어요 . . ! ! ! ‘MICHAEL, ANGELVS, BONAROTYS, FLORENT, FACIEBAT’ '피렌체 출신의 미켈란젤로 부오나로티가 만들었다.' 와웅 . . 세상 돌직구죠? 이 서명으로 그는 곧 유명해졌지만 얼마 지나지 않아 미켈란젤로는 자신의 행동을 후회하게 됩니다 :( 그 이유는 '신은 이 세상을 창조하고도 그 어디에도 자신의 흔적을 남기지 않았다'는 것이죠 . 미켈란젤로는 자신의 오만을 크게 후회하고 그 뒤로는 어떠한 작품에도 서명을 남기지 않게 됩니다 ! 흠터레스팅이죠 ? ! ㅎ_ㅎ
Graphic Design Tip: How to Brainstorm an Effective Logo
Before I started going to art school, my parents (as a lot of parents do) really overestimated my own abilities. During my high school years, they launched their own non-profit organization for breast cancer advocacy, where the entire group was essentially run out of a room of our house. My father was in charge of building the website and making sure that it ran smoothly. My mother was the spokesperson, often attending various conventions and symposiums to address those in the medical field about breast cancer and HER2+, a more aggressive expression. Launching the group was running quite smoothly until my parents approached me with a favor. They wanted me to design their logo. Andddd it didn't go so well. They gave up and found a professional. Fast forward to my life after art school, and I'm looking back at my high school years wishing I could have helped teenage me come up with a great logo design. While creating a logo is not as easy as it looks, it really is perhaps one of my favorite design challenges. There is a lot to consider when you're making a logo, and I've decided that it might be helpful to make a simplified list for all of you Vingle designers so that you can go out into the branding world and create beautiful things! 1. Keep it simple. As fun as it is to be given the opportunity to really utilize your creative side, it really isn't the appropriate time to start busting out all of those fancy and elaborate tricks you might have learned doing other projects. Creating a visually 'busy' logo is just not effective marketing. 2. Keep in mind that you're creating a symbol to represent a company. It can be pretty direct symbolism, ie: the apple logo for Apple or the red cross for American Red Cross, or it can be more abstract, similar to the Nike swoosh. Another popular logo option is to reduce down to a strictly typographic design. Disney or Kellogg's is a good example of effective typographic logos. Get creative, but keep it simple. My favorite example of balance between creativity and minimalism is the FedEx logo. Have you ever noticed there's an arrow between the E and the X? 3. Do your research. Before thumbnailing your own logo ideas, think of all of the logos you've seen that really caught your attention. Even try drawing them out freehand. Look up interviews with the advertising designers behind some of the world's most famous logos. I would recommend "To Inform and Delight", a documentary about Milton Glaser, the artist who designed the I♥NY logo. 4. When you're finally ready, begin making a list of all the descriptive words you associate with the company and how you want your audience to feel when looking at your logo, like 'friendly' or 'sophisticated'. Then think about your nouns. When you think about your company, what images come to mind? If you were creating a logo for Tropicana Orange Juice, for example, maybe the first thing you think of is a tree or an orange or a glass. Try to think of as many nouns as possible, as these will definitely help you when you start putting pencil to paper. 4. USE YOUR SKETCHBOOK. I can't stress the importance of this. I feel like a lot of artists go straight to their laptops and begin working on Photoshop or Illustrator over working on actual thumbnails first. Technology can really stifle the creative process that is so important in the early stages of design. Draw at least 100 thumbnails in your sketchbook. It will really help you push your own boundaries and give you a number of ideas to choose from. 5. When considering which thumbnail you want to use, think about the different ways your logo will be translated for pamphlets, packages, and other promotional materials. Does your logo translate well to color AND black and white? How does it look on a dark background versus a light background? How does the logo look with text and without text? Is it as visually effective when you adjust the scale? Manipulate your logo over and over, and if it is still recognizable, you probably have yourself a really iconic logo! I hope this can help some of you designers and marketers, especially those of you who might be in the middle of branding or rebranding a company. The logo is always the first start! Happy designing!
