Scott Wade started creating masterpieces, in dirt, on car windshields. I feel this is very unique and another amazing way to turn something unwanted and thought of as bad, into beautiful art. I love art that turns our dirty world into something beautiful and creative. Click on the link to look through Scott Wades gallery, and watch videos of how he has mastered the art of dirt.

“Mona Lisa/Starry Night | This image featuring Leonardo’s “Mona Lisa” with Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” is shown at its peak. These images drawn in the dust are obviously quite impermanent. One of the cool things about them is how they change over time. More dust accumulates as the car is driven down the road. Early morning dew streaks and dots the image, creating a patina. A light shower creates a deeper patina… Photo Credit: Scott Wade”

This one only took an hour to create!

“TRASH: anycoloryoulike is a public art project for urban beautification and environmental awareness. The project consists of select city blocks in which new artist-created trash bags transform standard piles of trash into vivid sculptures of color through the participation of local business owners and residents. The project was developed by artist Adrian Kondratowicz.”

Starting in Holland Adrian Kondratowicz decided to turn trash into art, literally. With an installment in NYC you can now see these artistic trash bags dotting NYC sidewalks on trash day. I feel this is a great way to turn something ugly into something beautiful, while helping to make people more aware of just how much trash we do make, by make it stand out and become more noticeable.

It is rumored that there are to be new colors and designs out this Spring.

I feel this is a very unique promotion design. To help sell the Nerd Glasses the company created a whole line of products based off of the one item. I feel this is a smart technique for good business. And this is a strong, unique design.

I feel that this is a very successful design because it is very clear and obvious, as well as informative. It catches the viewers attention and is easily, and quickly understood. It is a unique idea.

Hope For African Children Initiative logo was designed by Mugar Mihai. The organization supports fighting AIDs in Africa. This is an amazing negative space example as one can recognize Africa rather quickly, but can still easily see the people embedded in the surrounding space.
