Designers at Panasonic’s in-house design facility in Japan have styled an LCD monitor which promises to free up desk space normally consumed by bulky computer monitors. The PanaFlat LC40 is a 14in screen with a 1024×768 resolution which, claims Panasonic, provides a ‘rock steady’ image. The power consumption is less than most household light bulbs. The light bulbs do have the edge on the screen when it comes to price, however. The PanaFlat LC40 will retail at 2495.

I want you.’ Creative IQ creative director Chris Payne says the cards combine historical imagery and modern design.
