Oreo Turns 100!

Here at Tinbot towers we love a biscuit with our cuppa in the office and one of our favourite kind of biccies is Oreo’s.

I spotted these clever ads which were created to celebrate Oreo’s 100 Birthday here on this blog. The concept of the advertisements is to recreate historic events from the last 100 years using Oreo’s!

We love this campaign as it is simple yet creative and fun. The only downside is that now I really want to eat some Oreo biscuits with a glass of milk now but have none in the cupboard!

Links we love

We love finding random stuff on the internet, and here on Tinblog we can share some of our favourite discoveries with you.

Some of the links below have already been shared on our Facebook page. Please visit the page and like Tinbot if you have not already done so!

  • Good design and good news – a great project from a London design agency. The Good Times newspaper.
  • The 1958 Lego patent drawing.
  • These Pantone tarts have been doing the rounds on the net. Yummy and colourful.
  • We could do with a real life version of this in the tinbot office! Instead we may just order the print from the What Katie does Etsy store.
  • Working from home (like we do!) is both awesome and horrible.
  • Maybe she is born with it, maybe its Fotoshop!

 

 

More keep calm

Continuing on from our last post about the “keep calm and carry on” posters and how it has been parodied into so many different versions. This is my favourite I have seen to date. It pleases the geeky side of me!

Keep Calm and Carry on

The keep calm and carry on print is everywhere these days. This iconic poster started to appear in home and design magazines and home decor blogs about seven years ago and now you cannot escape it, the message is everywhere!

The motto is printed on mugs, t-shirts, and it has been parodied many times over to every possible turn of phase. And yes, I do want to get a poster in pink to hang in our bedroom when we decorate it! It is the perfect encouragement I need to start each day.

I knew that the poster was used as a morale booster in the second world war but that was the extent of my knowledge of its history. I recently came across this video below which explains the story behind the poster. Plus it shows an amazing book store I really want to visit now!
