Behold the Meaty Goodness! Salami Notes for Memory Keeping.

There is something ridiculously great about “Salami Notes“. Why use a simple Post It note when you can peel off a slice of meaty goodness, scrawl your message and leave behind the tasty morsel.


Hiop Salami Notes are the “Gourmet Memo” according to the label and package, which is designed to look like a tasty Italian cured meat product covered in rind and wrapped in  string. I know what I’ll be getting people for Christmas.



Why Sound Design Matters.

OK most of us don’t watch TV with headphones on. Most of us mute or skip commercials when they interrupt our TV viewing. It’s OK we all do it. The thing is, sometimes you miss the craft that goes into making that little 30 second spot. What most of us don’t think about is the number of people it takes to get a simple TV commercial made, and the craft that goes into it. CAse in point the video below. Specifically, the sound design. With that said, put on your headphones, turn up the volume a bit and listen to the way ambient sounds are enhanced, mixed, and reworked to become a musical soundtrack. A soundtrack that makes this spot from Nolan Collaborative.
