Ebay Re-Design

most of you guys might have already recognized the new ebay logo:

it's plain, it's easy, it's modest.
...and boring?

let's have a look way back at ebay's former logo:

it's always a good thing to directly compare things.
well, at first glance it looks like they just put the letters straight and made them have a diet :)
having a closer look, we become aware that they changed the lines of the letter "y" the whole logo kind of an ending, a drive back to the "e", so to say.

maybe ebay wanted to turn its back on the fancy pop-artish abstractism of its old logo and make room for a new adultism.
finally, it's obvious that the new look is more clear, smooth and straight.

so, the new ebay look ist not a complete failure but not a design milestone either (bet, their design team won't win any prizes for that...)    

however, a clear regress and failure are the new icons indeed:

and here's what we used to know and love:

I barely could identify what these new blue-green-greyish symbols should stand for!
would I not know their meaning by heart... ;)

so, my new favorite anti-icon clearly is THE PARCEL - or letter? or backpack? or whatever it should stand for, haha. should work on that again, ebay!

Shoes Shoes Shoes

just ordered 3 brand new pairs of shoes on my new favourite shopping platform javari :

1st: nice biker boot lookalike with fake fur for cosy walking... love the contrasting of the white & black as well as the robust & fluffyness

2 nd: biker boot no2, in my favourite colour tan... great matching of the buckle with the zipper

and finally 3 rd: this should be a huge shock after the first two shoes are not really matching this one... would'nt have expected this one, would ya?

i already own the adidas top ten low sleek in white - unfortunately, it turned out to be too small
soooo i found this great replacement by sheer coincidence and it really was a bargain!

i'm so excited how these 3 darlings look on my feet

some good design advice...

so my design advice of the day is:
never use comic sans type and you'll be fine  :)

vintage spotlight

grannys favourite  -  and now mine :  1960s floor lamp

truly inspired by some design classic, this might not be a rare sample of some famous designer's collection but clearly a well made copy and real vintage from a past decade . . .

and i love it  <3
