Assholes are everywhere, in the subway, office, and most public spaces. They are increasing in numbers by the year. The fact is, being an asshole can be contagious, and sometimes needs self-diagnosis. This campaign’s goal is to abolish, selfish behaviors, condescending manners, and be good to people around you and appreciate them.
People who drive, heavily rely on Google Maps. It is precise, and easy to navigate.
In the past year texting and driving has become a social issue, with the rising death counts all across the country.
Our solution is to automatically switch the phone to “Do Not Disturb” mode, when searching for directions by car. This will prevent drivers from being distracted by text messages and will reduce accidents in a great deal.
I hope Google will implement this and stop more accidents.

My name is Alexandre Laclaverie, I am a French graphic designer.
I designed a handmade poster, customizable by everyone, made of more of 6000 triangles of paper that can be detached.
People can draw or write what they want on it.
The colors chosen are a kind of light spectrum, between two black papers.
I hope you enjoy it!
Hi, I’m Jay, the maker behind Retro Steam Works’ upcycled lighting creations. I create one of a kind repurposed lamps using reclaimed materials.
I live in sunny Southwest Florida with my kids, multiple reptiles, a tarantula, a cat and two dogs.
Retro Steam Works is a one man operation; I am the designer, maker, mover and shaker.
I obtain my materials from various sources, such as; estate sales, flea markets and recycle centers.
Retro Steam Works started as a combination of factors. One, my company downsized and had to let me go, two, I have always been a fan of vintage things, and discarded artifacts.
I thought what if I tinker with them to see what turns out of it and voila, here I am, creating things and enjoying while doing it.
I like to use worn out materials as much as possible. I love the idea of creating something out of a piece that has history; vintage and rusty stuff really catches my eye.
The process I use to create my pieces may sound simple, but to me, a person with a mild case of ADD and OCD is sometimes difficult.
The creative process usually starts with some research for inspiration, but what really ignites the process is when I lay out some of my materials and do a hand-on-material sketch. When I am happy with the result, I make a list of what I might need to complete the assembly and start to work.
Sometimes I sketch on paper, but that usually is time consuming and often frustrating, because some of the materials may not be readily available, thus I end up walking up and down my shop looking for available materials I can use.
Once the materials are gathered, they are cleaned thoroughly without altering the patina so hard earned. Then I look for the right design which must be durable and useful. When I’m satisfied with the design, I proceed to assemble, then the wiring and testing.
Craftsmanship is of utmost importance to me, thus I like to double check everything. I know that every item that leaves my studio represents the company, so the details really matter. Since the customer satisfaction is entirely in my hands, I strive for a high level of integrity in my work.
Some of my creations have been featured on: http://www.weupcycle.com, http://www.recyclart.org, http://www.upcycledzine.com and http://www.creativespotting.com/ to name a few.
Thank you for reading and I hope to see you back soon!
