This past week Hilton Worldwide (formerly Hilton Hotels Corporation) unveiled its new corporate name and logo designed by Landor.
"With the addition of the word 'worldwide' the new logo unites all members of the organization across all parts of the globe with one shared vision for success. The platinum and gold stylized H evokes quality, stature and the richness of Hilton’s heritage. The two halves are reflective, which are a reminder of the company’s storied past and vibrant future, and the open curves are welcoming, symbolizing the world of travel by suggesting the round edges of the globe, the arch of a bridge and posts of a bed."

London architect Julian Hakes has designed a pair of shoes with no foot plate.
Called Mojito, the design consists of a single piece that wraps around the wearer’s foot, forming support for the heel and ball.The foot naturally forms a bridge between the two.
The product is made of carbon fibre, laminated with rubber on the side that touches the floor and leather on the side next to the skin.

Well, TV is magic (at least I think so..) and what better way to control magic if not with a wand? A magic wand that is!
Rotate clockwise and anti clockwise to adjust the volume. Flick up and down to change the channel. Or flick left and right to skip tracks. There are 13 gestures some of which are swishes, pulling backwards, tapping...all of which are customizable.
Im guessing this is gonna be a great success with Harry Potter fans!. You've got to check out the website, its quite awesome too!
Not only are they fun and interactive but you'd actually have wallpapers that change over time the more you play..with more colors and patterns popping up!
Buy them at 5.5 Designers.

With the collaboration of Scott Thomas, the Design Director for the Obama campaign and forewords by Steven Heller and Michael Bierut, Designing Obama showcases the branding efforts behind the most successful campaign in presidential history.
The book is a chronicle of the art from the historic campaign. It reveals the inside story of how designed was used by the campaign.
The making of the book is in progress and rests upon the contributions of its supporters. Pre-order your copy for $50 or follow the making via Twitter here.
The real thin metal bookends are hidden inside the covers of the end books. The magnetic arrows cling to the metal behind the cover and create the illusion of holding the books together while in the air! Magic!
