YVES BÉHAR BUCKS THE TREND OF MORE IS MORE IN THE SKINCARE MARKET, DESIGNING A SIMPLIFIED VISUAL IDENTITY AND PARED DOWN, ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING FOR NIVEA. You’re in the grocery store after work. You look for the same “curly hair” shampoo you’ve bought for months, but when you go for the familiar bottle, you find three new, infuriatingly similar curly hair shampoos to choose from.

MALE POP CULTURE ICONS POUND IT FOR A BROMANTIC MEME “I Know That Feel, Bro” is a meme that’s been newly invigorated by depictions involving star-crossed characters from your favorite movies and shows. Men were once raised to believe that society preferred the strong, silent type; that they were to remain stoic at all times, keeping complex emotional anxieties simmering beneath the surface. Currently, however, with confessional, soul-baring music from the likes of Kanye West and Frank Ocean topping charts and movies like I Love You, Man becoming hits, the paradigm has shifted.

It’s a magical moment when you see something you’ve never seen done before, an inspired painting or composition that introduces you to the world in a new way, through a perspective or from an angle […]Read more »

Translucent, patterned walls by Olafur Eliasson define the interior space of the Norwegian cultural center – Operah House. Marx Brothers movies and epic Queen albums aside, a night at the opera should offer more than just another evening out–just the idea of the experience is enough to evoke thoughts of black-tie glamour and big-time cultural consumption. In Oslo, the striking, glass-and-aluminum-clad New Norwegian National Opera and Ballet House by local architecture stars Snøhetta has been welcoming visitors to enjoy the performing arts since 2008 and, once inside, they’re treated to a site-specific installation by another Nordic notable, Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur […]Read more »
