I have man boobs

Came across this and I've been playing with it ever since, wonderful interface and design- and a great concept, it’s called The Profiler the idea is wonderfully simple It allows you to combine data from your Facebook with your YouTube and Flickr accounts, the website allows you to discover things you and your friends find interesting all in the one location.

Look, share and view your profile as a mosaic, great interaction and I love the design and interface even though my mosaic profile seems to have given me some man boobs.

YouTube You Beauties

Well YouTube with this site called YouTube Disco have done it again and came up with this, what a stroke of genius so simple,where you just Find> Mix> Watch> just type in your fav artist or tune and it comes up - nothing new indeed but I haven't seen anything like this apart from Pandora where your taste in music can been seen and played in the one location, music to my ears.Yeah baby!

Seamless experience

There I was when it happened snail mail had arrived most mailers especially at work I throw in the bin but this one was different the 'outer' as they like to say at direct marketing agencies read: 'To the very talented Kevin Ferry' - with some niffy illustrations too it grabbed my attention - the mad fools, talented in what? I needed to find out what they thought I was talented in so I opened it up and discovered a newspaper (recycled I might add) size full of illustrations which was wonderful all contrasting styles from Jacky Winters Illustrations and my talent? apparently I'm pretty good at spotting talent, well in this instance they're right.
What I particularly liked about this mailer it lead me towards their URL and to their show-reel- the website Well designed, good user experience and not to fancy - let the work do the talking which it did so much so I told the rest of the design team- good work Jacky Winters you know your audience well
