[Infographie] Combien ça coûte de créer une startup à Paris, Londres ou San Francisco? En tant que startup, l’équipe de s’est posée la question de savoir combien coûtait une startup dans 8 villes du monde entier: Manille, Mumbai, Paris, Londres, San Francisco, New York, Sydney et Zurich. Le calcul a été réalisé sur le montant de la location d’un bureau et des salaires moyens d’un designer et d’un développeur. Zurich serait la ville où le salaire des développeurs serait le plus haut, estimé à plus de 99 000 dollars par an (56 400 dollars par en à Paris).

Print advertising: 85 brilliant examples | Print design In these days of digital media, it's easy to overlook the art of print ads. But the medium is still as relevant and powerful as vintage posters ever were, whether small scale magazine ads or huge billboard advertising. As Paul Arden states in It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be: "Print advertising should be recognisable at a hundred paces, and it should be obvious who it's an ad for without seeing the brand name." No matter what the medium, you still need a concept that's going to stick in people's minds. We think these examples of print advertising do just that. 01. The way kids play these days has changed dramatically; gaming apps are more popular than ever and when you're not looking, your little sprog has more-than-likely purchased a few extras to make their gaming experience even better. 02. Sometimes going for a simpler approach makes the most impact. Playing with typography and bright colours, this campaign from IKEA is as lovely to look at as it is clever.

MAKING Matters The World’s Most Dangerous Hiking Trail A good business card definitely won’t ensure your success, but it sure can help! It can make all the difference in the first impression that you have on someone, or whether or not you leave an impression at all, so here are 30 cleverly-designed business cards that will get you thinking about how you might want to present yourself! [Read more...] Many of us are probably guilty of accepting business cards out of politeness and then just throwing them away or forgetting about them (I know I am). These cards, however, stay with you – psychologically or physically. Some have been cleverly designed to double as useful tools, product samples or funny little toys, while others manage to make a point about the person on the card that will stick more than just a name and an address. With the emphasis placed on networking these days, it’s more important than ever to stand out of the crowd – and here are a few good ideas for how to do it! 1. 2.

What Happened When One Woman Had Her Picture Photoshopped In 25 Different Countries “Make me look beautiful.” That’s what Esther Honig asked 40 photo editors to do — in over 25 countries. Using the service-sharing site Fiverr, Honig, a human interest reporter, sent a picture of herself to be photoshopped around the world to see just how much cultural values are applied to standards of beauty. Honig found that individuals from every country applied a distinct perspective on beauty to her image. Seeing her image manipulated in so many dimensions had a profound impact on Honig’s own self-perception. Honig is reluctant to draw a “moral of the story” from the project, which is ongoing. Still, the project dispels the myth of a singular beauty norm. Check out the rest of the incredible images below.

Getty The Sound of Silence: How Gravity Created a Terrifying Score for Outer Space | Underwire Composer Steven Price has also scored Attack the Block and this summer’s The World’s End. Photo courtesy Costa Communications If Alien taught us anything — besides that Sigourney Weaver is awesome — it’s that in space, no one can hear you scream. It’s true. There’s no air up there, so there’s nothing that sound can travel on. It’s just deadly silence. In Gravity Alfonso Cuarón opted to keep it scientific thanks to a handy trick – filling the void with tunes. “Ordinarily in an action film you’re often competing with explosions and god knows what else, whereas with this [movie] music could do things a different way,” Gravity’s composer Steven Price told WIRED. So what went out the window (or airlock) in the process? The composer, who previously scored Attack the Block and The World’s End, also was tasked with conveying the emotions characters were feeling, but that they couldn’t necessarily verbalize. “You can hear the synth dying,” Price said.

Veille du Brand Content Art Director Creates a Hilariously Dramatic Car Ad to Sell His Crappy Old Volvo The great thing about creatives — be they photographers, filmmakers or, in this case, an art director who does a bit of both — is that they can capture even the most mundane of things in a dramatic and compelling manner. Case in point: art director Castor recently had to sell his crappy old 93′ Volvo 245GL. The result is a hilarious masterpiece that is a testament to creative (and often made up) word choice and quality cinematography, hitting on all of the standard car commercial clichés without actually having anything to brag about. Check out the video above to start your Tuesday off with a laugh, and then head over to Castor’s website by clicking here if you’d like to browse through his show reel or photography portfolio.

You Won’t Believe these Sculptures are Made Entirely of Wood May 22, 2013 It’s hard to believe, but all of the sculptures you see below are made entirely of wood and then painted. The person responsible is artist and educator Tom Eckert, who uses traditional processes to carve, construct, laminate and paint his pieces. Tom says his preferred woods are basswood, linden and limewood because they carve and paint well and are stable. Throughout many of Eckert’s pieces you will notice forms carved to suggest cloth. “By tradition, cloth has been widely used to conceal and shroud objects in practices ranging from advertising to church rituals. Eckert received his M.F.A. degree from Arizona State University where he now teaches. To see the complete catalogue of his incredible artwork be sure to visit his official website at An Interview with Master Wood Sculptor Tom Eckert If you enjoyed this post, the Sifter highly recommends:
