Charity Water's is clever and delivers the message clearly. We may take advantage of water, but I'm sure most of us forget about the unsanitary water that other people are forced to use, because there's no clean water available to them. Water helps our lives whether it's the necessary drinking, growing gardens to provide food or having fun painting, it's an essential part of our lives. This ad is another simple and well done design.

I met Rick of Omunky this past year after "digitally" knowing him through the internet. He has an animal theme t-shirt line, but it's not your normal animal shirts since they all have a fun and quirky twist. Rick is always out at various craft and street fairs selling his tees and spreading his humorous line to the world. He has decided to up the ante with his new "farm series" by creating a Kickstarter campaign. Your rewards range from buttons, to digital wallpapers, to one of the tees, all of them, and some screen printed posters. Think of them as really good prizes you can get. Help him make these new designs over here.

I don't know how many of you played DOOM back in the day, but I was a fan of the computer game. The fact that a scene was recreated in photoshop is nuts. It is very well done and so awesome. What is just as great is you can watch the progress video of this image being made. Props to you Elemental79.

The NBA New Orleans Hornets will now be the New Orleans Pelicans when they play their 2013-2014 basketball season. The pelican is Louisiana's state bird, which makes sense why they changed their name. It also has the Fleur de Lys which is another symbol that represents New Orleans. I personally like their new logo and their secondary logos. I feel the colors work well and that overall logo has a classy look and modern style that compliment each other. The pelican itself is okay even though I feel the head and bill isn't that recognizable compared to the wings. I think the angry aggressive look is fitting and shows a fierce bird that many people who are not from Louisiana will consider to be a non threatening mascot when they think of the word "pelican".
What are your thoughts on the logo? Is it simple enough? Does it work well with what the team wants to be portrayed as?
