This week’s round-up of interesting things we’ve seen on the web goes from riots to x-rated movies, via Tom Waits.
In the wake of the rioting across England, Adrian Shaughnessy asks if designers (as well as brand owners and ad agencies) should shoulder some of the blame for ‘creating a world of desire and consumption’ that excludes those who can’t afford entry. A predictably lively debate is played out in the comments section.
It’s Nice That have drawn our attention to the X-Rated Collection, a site dedicated to X-rated film posters from the 1960s and ’70s. Titles include The Love Merchant (A Spectacle of Decadence) and The Erotic Adventures of Zorro
And as it’s Friday, here’s a video of Seseme Street’s Cookie performing Tom Waits’s God’s Away On Business. No design relevance really, but it’s still been the DW news-desk’s most-visited site this week.
