Pixel City by Atelier Olschinsky
Seen from afar, our towns and sprawling cities could easily be confused for a pixelated landscape or perhaps a giant circuit board, wiring we humans together. Atelier’s Pixel City explores civilization as component, a vector in the latticework of progress.
Green Pedestrian Crossing created by Jody Xiong
The China Environmental Protection Foundation developed an outdoor campaign, displayed on the street, to creatively promote this message. They decided to leverage a busy pedestrian crossing; a place where both pedestrians and drivers meet.
The campaign involved laying a canvas 12.6 metres long by 7 metres wide on the ground, thus covering the pedestrian crossing with a large leafless tree. On either side of the road, beneath the traffic lights, were placed sponge cushions soaked in green, environmentally friendly, washable paint. As pedestrians walked towards the crossing, they stepped on the green sponge, thus leaving green foot imprints on the canvas of the tree. Each ‘green’ footprint on the canvas looked like leaves growing on a bare tree, which made people feel that by walking they could create a greener environment.
The ‘Green Pedestrian Crossing’ was carried out across 7 thoroughfares in Shanghai. The campaign was then extended to 132 roads across 15 cities in China, with a participation exceeding 3,920,000 people.

Monopoly Real Estate Signs by Dave Delisle
Perturbed by unwieldy realty signs and harboring a secret vendetta against networking realtors, Dave decided to simplify the “for Sale” sign while giving it a recognizable and more welcoming board game aesthetic. Though have you ever stayed up late playing a never-ending game of Monopoly with your family? These signs look cool but I may go all conditioned response and start instinctively biting grandma’s hand if I saw one.
