A great infographic from Havas Media
! It was in the brilliant new post – “Meaningful Brands
” – by strategist Christel Quek
, one of Havas’ rising stars, and one of the most respected voices in social media today. When you discuss global brands and how they impact our lives, you have to analyze all of the relevant aspects. No shortcuts.
This is value of this infographic. The scope and depth is impressive. So is Christel’s spot on analysis of the ten statistics that make it standout. It’s hard to not be impressed. This could easily fit in with the consistently effective infographics we see from the Gates Foundation.
40 meters off of the ground, the Redwoods Treehouse is an amazing sight. Located in New Zealand and built in part from sustainably-harvested pine, it is one of the most celebrated restaurants that most of the world has never heard of. Truly awe-inspiring architecture.
Asia has been at the forefront of sustainable, eco-friendly design for years now. Malaysia, China, and even the United Arab Emirates. Great work. So this restaurant in New Zealand should come as no surprise. I just wish we could do this sort of project on a mass scale in the United States. There have been sporadic projects, but I’m looking for a big push.
I figured my readers might enjoy this. It’s a feast for the eyes…and for the environment!

You will certainly enjoy the video (seen here) of Sngmoo Lee’s The Warrior’s Way, which is out in theatres on December 3rd. It stars Dong-Kun Jang, Kate Bosworth, Danny Huston, and Geoffrey Rush. It’s quite the visual feast! Billed as a “martial arts, western fantasy”, it features the kind of stylistic battles that became popular with the massive success of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon – one of my favorite movies of all time.
Some of the recent martial movies have used amazing battle scenes and breathtaking cinematography to enhance the story, and leave moviegoers spellbound. The aforementioned Crouching Tiger and The House of Flying Daggers always come to mind. It looks like The Warrior’s Way may follow it their footsteps.
