$5 Makes A Difference is a creative ad campaign by Ogilvy Australia for Forest & Bird.

Oglivy Australia on their work:

Forest & Bird protect all of New Zealand’s native species and wild places, but they receive no government funding. To continue doing the work they do, they desperately needed new members and the cheapest membership option is $5 a month. With that in mind, we wanted people to discover for themselves how a mere $5 could make a huge difference – it can help put a bird back in its natural environment. The concept was well received and then extended to $10 and $50.

Sometimes scientists have to get creative to raise funding for their work. Squid scientists Andrea Suria and Sarah McAnulty have come up with some very creative ways to reward contributors on the Kickstarter-for-science site These include prints of their own artwork (pictured above) for donations of $100 or the ability to name one of the squids in their lab for the low price of $20. Check it out to see how you might be able to help them reach their goal and stick around to see if there might be some other scientists you can help support too.

School’s about to start. Why settle for boring binders when you can get these space binders from my Thinx Shop on Zazzle?


South African artist Chris Slabber has created a spectacular new series called Destruction/Creation, which features images of gorgeous “sculptures” formed from paint swirling in water. He uses photo manipulation to form delicate figures in the billows of paint, creating stunning portraits.

Bryan Christie Design

Bryan Christie. I had seen this name over and over again in the fine print every time I saw a beautiful medical visual in a magazine. From Scientific American to Newsweek it seemed like Bryan Christie’s crisp, clear, and aesthetically pleasing visuals dominated medical editorial illustration. Problem was I had never heard of him in the rather small sphere of medical illustrators.
