In 2019, big ol Donald Trump controversially ended the long running presidential weekly address. So we’ve reinstated it for the people; curious, creative, good people…like you.
Welcome to The (inaugural) Weekly Address, by yours truly, Mr. President. Our’s is less political. It’s our way of curating creative gems to help inspire your great ideas – we’re very big on creative liberty like that. We keep it brief and entertaining – and it starts right now.
First up, something to warm your cockles – children sharing their philosophical wisdom about chess…yes chess. Next time you need to talk about something that’s maybe not so exciting, get kids to do it instead (works for TFL).
Ever thought Brutalist skyscrapers looked a bit like Tetris blocks? If you have, then Mariyan Atanasov’s ‘Urban Tetris’ will feel like it was taken right from your mind (or taken in it – photography joke ;) Talk about an unvoiced truth. (See the full series)
Lose yourself in this mesmerising splash page animation. The site hero’s artist Antwan Horfee’s collection of the classic Japanese Menko cards…i.e static, printed goods. With crafting this beautiful and detailed, you could sell anything. (See the full splash page here)
Last week, Dyson patented headphones that double as an air purifier. Timely, slightly bonkers, but also genius, it’s got to be on your head anyway, so why not? Volume up, germs out. (Details here)
Lastly, a favourite of ours this week. If you haven’t already, experience the magic of Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ mixed with Kanye West’s ‘Power’. Two bits of great work – that just shouldn’t go well together – creating a masterpiece. You’re welcome.
That’s all for now, now go make great things. We’ll see you next week.
