When Snapchat first launched in 2011, people were drawn to the idea that any photo or video they sent would soon be hidden from the recipient and deleted from the server. With sexting at its prime, it’s no secret that the app has often been used for sending sexy selfies, but now it’s been taken over by brands. London-based Miss Crofton is no exception.

Computer Error Messages For The Heartbroken

Getting over a broken heart or a moment of personal crisis is certainly not as easy as clicking “delete” to empty your memory files. Brooklyn-based graphic designer Victoria Siemer illustrates just how painfully real that fact is through her ongoing series called Human Error.

With bright fluorescent lights, flashy colors, and the countless catchy slogans and broad claims, buying groceries can be pretty jarring. Even more so when we consider that those eye-catching packages are destined to end up in the landfill. Is it necessary for our foods to be so loud, or could the future of packaging be a store itself? That’s the idea behind Original Unpacked (Original Unverpackt), a supermarket concept that wants to cut down on waste and confusion by adding transparency to our grocery list.

Porn is an industry that doesn’t have much to hide when it comes to their online ads, but Pornhub has its sights set on a national ad campaign that will include magazine ads and TV slots. They want to create something safe for work (SFW), which is why they asked their fans to submit ideas on a dedicated Tumblr page. To make thing interesting, the person with the best ideas will also get a one-year contract to become Pornhub’s creative director.

As the season of floppy drawstring festival bags and giant summer beach totes draws near, finding essentials like one’s wallet in a timely manner can become a tall order. The world won’t wait around for you to fish in your big, dark bag for your stuff – and though you may use your phone as a flashlight, what happens when it too gets lost in those voluminous depths?
