With 2017 coming to the pointy end, I realised that I didn't reflect on some of my favourite campaigns of 2016. And the winner, hands down, has to go to Spotify's 2016 wrap up campaign "Thanks 2016, It's Been Weird".

See Different, Think Different, Do Different

I want you to ask yourself; do you take the same route to work everyday? Do you take the same route to the gym? What about to the supermarket? Or to your local pubs? I certainly do. Humans are creatures of habit. We love consistency and when we find the quickest way to get from A to B, we stick to it. Now I'm not saying that this is a bad thing, but when you work in a creative space, consistency and familiarity can breed complacency.

Forms of Nature

I am absolutely in love with this - Forms of Nature by HildenDiaz. Not only is the chandelier an incredibly intricate, stunning and unique piece of design but the effect of transforming any room into a scene from a fairytale is amazing. I love how the piece extends itself into a 360° experience. A great example of how elements of art, installation and experience design can be applied to a simple everyday product.

How Bad Design ruined Miss Universe

So ICYMI or have been living under a rock, the biggest fail of 2015 was arguably Steve Harvey's monumental mixup at the Miss Universe finale. In the highly anticipated moment of the final crowning, he wrongly announced Miss Columbia as the winner of the pageant, only to realise soon after that it was Miss Philippines who should have been crowned Miss Universe 2015.
