Concept is defined as an abstract idea that shows a connection is something that is usually not relative.

Letters and Numbers

I saw a license plate that said TRUF8TH and thought about how letters and number coexist in society. I looked at it for awhile, trying to figure out what it said exactly. I soon realized it was meant to be read as True Faith. It makes me think about text language, using numbers to spell, make communication more efficient.
Here are a few examples:
 l8r = later
 2= to, too
4get = forget

Red Bull Gives You Bull

Read between the Label
When you’re on the go nonstop, it’s easy to grab an energy drink to give you that pep to keep going. Many students find the nearest Starbucks on the corner to get a caffeine boost, while some grab a Monster energy drink or a 5 hour energy. With all the controversy surrounding Red Bull, mainly with athletics, I would suggest researching what the product entails.
A friend told me that Red Bull was actually Bull urine. He explained there is an ingredient in Red Bull called Taurine (sounding very similar to Toro, as in bull) that is extracted from an actual bull and used in Red Bull. He went on to confirm his argument saying, “Why do you think it’s yellow? It’s pee.”
Wikipedia says: Taurine is an organic acid. It is a major constituent of bile and can be found in the lower intestine and in the tissues of many animals, including humans.
 He continued to explain how bulls are full of testosterone, making them strong and energetic. That is why when you drink a Red Bull the boost you feel, or the “wings” as they like to call it is actually a dose of bull testosterone found in taurine. What makes this worse is that on the label it clearly states “With Taurine.” It is unfortunate that most of those who drink Red Bull are completely ignorant to what they are drinking.

"Weird Al" Yankovic - Eat It

In the spirit of bad food, I thought it would only be appropriate to post this parody video of Weird Al Yank entitled Just Eat it

Bad Food Foto

Show & Tell 1
I absolutely love food, and sure don’t discriminate. I’m willing to try almost anything edible and 9 times out of 10, I like it. When I see a picture of food, it gives me a warm feeling inside. You might call it hunger. I get excited about the food item and usually crave that food until I actually cook/order it and indulge. Here is an example of bad food photography. It was taken out of a North Carolina tourist magazine. I love BBQ but this is just a bit much….no wait….way too much. I understand their need to inform the masses of their massive menu, but somebody should have told them “less is more.”
On a designers note, why would they use pig character dressed in clothing to promote pork BBQ? Just a thought, a pig would not be happily serving you or me (their) ribs on a platter.

Im So Radioactive

Radioactive [rey-dee-oh-ak-tiv] 
–adjective Physics, Chemistry .
of, pertaining to, exhibiting, or caused by radioactivity.  
It is better described as a substance such as uranium or plutonium that emits energy in the form of streams of particles, owing to the decaying of its unstable atoms. This energy can be damaging or fatal to the health of people exposed to it.

Welcome to Radioactive, a blog completely reinvented. Reinvented, simpy because I owe it to myself to to make the most of  I chose to entitle my blog Radioactive because the word has multiple meanings to me. The traditional definition is stated above, but I would describe myself as Radioactive, because I am a complete radio junkie, active in all aspects of the field. I am a radio personality by day and a design student by night. So as the two [radio+design] worlds collide, I embark to discover things in my Radioactive life, and view them in a designers eye. Im so RADIOACTIVE!
