Survival in a Nuclear War

Forgot i even had this and cant remember where i picked it up.

Booklet from the Civil Defence on 'Survival in a Nuclear War' with advice on 'Protection in the Home and on the Farm'! Some real gems in there and the illustrations alone are something to behold.

Not sure what year the booklet was issued but it smacks of 1950's/60's.... of course I'm open to correction. Apart from the practical advice which is quite interesting the illustrations, which are credited to on David L. Murphy, Dip. A.I.C., A.N.C.A. (Design), are what really drew my attention. Love this style of illustration probably because it harks back to a more innocent time in society or something.

I've uploaded some of the illustrations to flickr but drop me a comment if you want higher res versions etc.

Yes i see your point of view on closer inspection…

...it's more than just print.

Wirify

Came across this nifty little tool that should help designers and content managers etc visualize and manage content/layout of web pages easily.

"Wirify is a bookmarklet that lets you turn any web page into a wireframe in one click."

You can wireframe Some Soup too....

The first blog i check every morning is Swissmiss and i think its probably the blog that inspires me the most. The person behind Swissmiss is Swiss designer Tina Roth Eisenberg and the video above is of a presentation she gave recently at a PSFK conference.
