I don't really need to give an introduction about the state of traffic in Delhi. Though central and south Delhi may seem little under control, control itself is a missing phenomenon as you spread radially. Bad roads, poor street lighting, horrible traffic planning all add up to long serpentine traffic jams.

Well, this post not a crib-trip on Delhi, but how intelligently someone has used traffic jams to their advantage.

I had noticed this car while on the way to and back from office on NH1 before and thought its a great idea to have an ad scroller tucked behind the the rear seats.

By virtue of unending traffic signals this car manages to get noticed always by the people behind it.

Though I don't like the AD as such but that again is a sad story I leave for another post on my fanatically hibernating blog

Design Magnetism

I was munching a pack of Lays in office when I was asked to leave for some urgent work. Not knowing what to do with the packet I did something impulsively and left.

On returning I reailsed that what I did was actually a cool application of my memo board which is otherwise very boring and office types.

Since I am working with a company specializing in stainless steel products thus my boring memo board is by default made of steel and is heavy and very cold to touch. So other than the papers nailed to it by magnetic bullets, the packet of chips looked different and interesting.

Soon I found more applications by what we in design terminology call explorations.

Others in office soon took notice and said " Cool !!! Abh ho gaye na tum sahi designer !!! "
I was left wishing if someone took notice.
