Minority Content Helped Seal NBC Universal Deal for Comcast

NEW YORK (AdAge.com) — Eight more minority-owned or minority-managed channels would seem to be good news for general-market marketers that say they want to spend in the minority media sector but often can't find enough places to put their money. But will that actually help marketers looking to spend more advertising dollars in the sector?

SigaSeuTime lança ferramenta para medir a temperatura das torcidas no Twitter


Lançado em 2009, e hoje com cerca de 500 mil usuários, o SigaSeuTime distribui conteúdo sobre os clubes brasileiros em diversas plataformas. Mas como você deve imaginar, a principal delas se tornou o Twitter.

Você segue o @SigaCorinthians, por exemplo, e recebe as principais notícias, resultados e até narração em tempo real dos jogos.

E uma ferramenta lançada hoje pelo serviço pretende medir a temperatura das torcidas no Twitter. O Tuitômetro mostra quais são os clubes mais comentados, com base na quantidade de tweets por minuto, tweets por pessoa e total do dia.

É interessante notar como tudo muda quando está rolando algum jogo. No momento do printscreen acima, o Palmeiras estava jogando, tendo de 200 a 300 tweets por minuto. Já o São Paulo com zero, já que ninguém se interessa por essa equipe de menor expressão do futebol brasileiro.

WWF: Tuna

“Only a portion of the catch in long line tuna fishing is tuna.

Most commercial fishing gear is not completely selective. As a result many endangered sea animals are also captured. To ensure the fish you buy is caught in a way that is environmentally friendly, text our fishMS number … with the type of fish and you’ll receive a sms back as to whether it’s in the red, orange or green category.

WWF. For the love of our oceans.”

Brand Health Check: Mr Kipling

Exceedingly good cakes they may be, but Mr Kipling and his French Fancies seem to be falling out of favour with the British public. While stopping off for a coffee and a cake on the high street remains an appealing part of a shopping trip, it appears that fewer of us are sharing gossip over a Bakewell tart and a pot of tea in our homes.

Sua mãe vai odiar “Dead Space 2?

Dead Space 2

A Electronic Arts vai lançar no próximo dia 25, a seqüência de um dos games mais aterrorizantes dos últimos anos (eu não jogava de luz apagada nem ferrando).

“Dead Space 2″, produzido pela Visceral Games, vai agradar críticos e hardcore gamers no mundo todo, mas será que sua mãe vai gostar?

É essa a pergunta da campanha de lançamento do jogo, em que a EA realizou um focus group com mais de 200 mães. Sentadas em uma sala, demonstraram suas reações enquanto assistiam as cenas mais violentas e repulsivas da obra.

A tentativa é dizer que: quanto menos a sua mãe gosta de alguma coisa, maior a probabilidade de você adorar. Eu discordo totalmente. A minha mãe também foge de violência no cinema e na TV, mas foi ela que assistiu comigo todos os filmes de aliens asquerosos das três últimas décadas.

No canal youtube.com/deadspace você pode ver mais um monte de senhoras desesperadas e revoltadas com “Dead Space 2″.

Top fonts of 2010 : MyFonts.Com

MyFonts’ parade of most popular fonts of 2010 is based on sales, so ultimately this is the list that customers/designers voted for. And a fascinating collection it is too, offering striking, charming and highly original faces for all tastes and budgets. Some trends? “Friendly and human” is big, with typefaces sporting rounded corners, soft silhouettes or hand-drawn letterforms. Scripts are going as strong as ever. And two cities have risen to prominence as typographic metropoli, 7500 miles apart: Buenos Aires and Berlin.

Brandon Grotesque

Not only was Brandon Grotesque the most successful new sans serif of the year, it was also the best selling 2010 release overall. Designer Hannes von Döhren took a fresh look at the geometric modernist classics from early twentieth-century Germany. Giving Brandon long ascenders and descenders, he took his cues from the more stylish and decorative typefaces of that genre, such as Erbar or Kabel. Brandon Grotesque makes sensible use of the compass and ruler: the geometric shapes were optically corrected for better legibility and harmony. The rounded corners lend the typeface a softer look in large sizes.

Lady René

Lady René is probably the most whimsical and spontaneous font to have come out of Agentina’s Sudtipos foundry, usually known for its elaborate, polished script fonts (of which we will encounter a classic example below). In fact, Lady René was not drawn by one of the collective’s regulars; it is the first typeface by newcomer Laura Varsky. Born out of a love of illustration and a reverence for the written word, her font has the directness and spontaneity of a handmade drawing. Alejandro Paul’s hard work made sure that, although unpolished in nature, the font is technically impeccable, its character set full of surprises.


Having joined MyFonts just over a year ago, Laura Worthington was one of 2010’s most outstanding designers, producing one best-selling font after the other. Origins was her biggest hit: a semi-connected calligraphic script with a confident flow. Based on hand-lettering with a Crow Quill pen on parchment paper, it has natural, rough outlines that contribute to its subtly antiquated feel. With gracious ascenders and descenders, Origins lends an elegant and somewhat formal touch to headlines, titling, invitations, branding and more.

St Ryde

Stereotypes is run by designer Sascha Timplan, whose output these past twelve months has been quite something. St Ryde, his successful text and display face, joins the ranks of lively yet legible typefaces with rounded terminals (think Fritz, Sauna or Haptic). Combining a sophisticated structure with playful details, St Ryde has a logic and a charisma all its own. It is a semi-serif rather than a sans; while it swings and bounces at display sizes, it looks more static and regular when used small. With multiple figure sets, small caps and open italics, it was made for serious typographic work, in spite of its unorthodox forms.


Alejandro Paul of Sudtipos is a master of that fascinating genre in contemporary type design that could be labeled “acrobatic scripts.” His ground-breaking Affair helped define the genre; it became available at MyFonts in early 2010 and has remained hugely popular throughout the year. Affair is one of those OpenType-programmed script fonts that need contemporary layout software to function as intelligently as it was designed; when using such OpenType-enabled programs, the font will help you select the ideal version of each letter in a particular combination to create amazing headlines and logos. Stunning stuff.


Let’s hear it for another highly creative character from Berlin: Ulrike Wilhelm. Her one-woman foundry LiebeFonts (which is German for “sweet fonts”) published a series of witty, mildly successful picture fonts during its first year. It was her first alphabetical font LiebeErika that led to her breakthrough, skyrocketing into the upper reaches of our Hot New Fonts list. LiebeErika is special: despite its hand-made look, it is regular, lucid and readable. With well-drawn, supple curves and thin, compressed characters, it has charm as well as sensibility. It is also full of extras, such as cheerful alternate forms and figures, ligatures, nicely designed key words (“and”, “the”, “by”) and more.

Museo Slab

One of MyFonts’ greatest hits of the past two years is the Museo series from Jos Buivenga’s exljibris foundry. The family started out as a semi-serif, then branched out into the sans-serif genre with the cool, clean Museo Sans. Museo Slab logically completed the suite and, as was to be expected, it has been hugely successful throughout the past year. The sturdy slab serifs combine perfectly with the family’s friendly geometry, resulting in a wonderfully readable typeface.


In the well-establshed genre of exuberant formal script fonts, Breathe by Maximiliano R. Sproviero is a special case. Designed to look alive, fresh and airy, the font takes a jump from the work of Didot and his contemporaries from around 1800 to today’s fashion of endless swashes and flourishes. Breathe Pro comes with over 1000 glyphs, including huge sets of alternates, swashes, historical forms, ligatures and more. If you want a less intricate font in the same style, choose Breathe Standard.


Sketching type was once a skill every graphic designer had to master in order to produce convincing mock-ups and tell the typesetter how the final result should look. With the recent crop of sketched fonts, the mock-up has now become the final product. Of the various hand-made versions of classics we’ve seen the last couple of years, Hiekka GraphicsSketchetik is the biggest hit. Based on that 1950s modern classic that is still the world’s best-selling font family today, Sketchetik combines lucid Swiss proportions with a loose hand-drawn look.


Argentinean-born Ricardo Rousselot learnt from some of the best American lettering artists when working in Chicago in the 1960s. Having moved to Barcelona in 1975 he has drawn logos and developed packaging for some of the biggest Spanish brands. Rousselot, now in his seventies, has finally begun publishing his hand-rendered alphabets as digital fonts. Despeinada, the first release from his foundry EdyType, was an immediate hit: it has been the year’s most succesful informal script. Its name means “uncombed” — an apt name for this loose, spontaneous handwriting font that is rough and precise at the same time.


Few foundries have been as successful last year as Hannes von Döhren’s HVD Fonts — in fact, two of his typefaces were among the year’s absolute best sellers. Livory was the biggest surprise: a thoughtful variation on the French sixteenth-century model, it was the year’s most popular oldstyle text font. Designed in collaboration with Livius Dietzel, its aim was to combine classic proportions with shapes full of verve and an audacious “fusion” of glyphs. The result is fluid and vigorous oldstyle without a trace of nostalgia.

O trailer de “Bulletstorm”, para PC, Xbox 360 e PS3, faz uma paródia do famoso “Diorama” de “Halo 3″, criado pela McCann em 2007.

Assim como o original, todo o vídeo foi feito através de uma maquete, com pouco ou nenhum uso de computação gráfica. A diferença é que, dessa vez, o realismo não foi uma das prioridades.
