An awesome online employee handbook

The Zaarly Employee Handbook is a beautifully designed example of an employee handbook. But beyond being a gorgeous website, the "rules" that are laid out (or lack thereof) are sure to be ground-breaking for some, while being common sense for others. Examples include things like not having a vacation policy and that it doesn't matter what time people arrive for or leave work.

What a difference a week makes

Fake Banksy Sells Out details the story of how a fake Banksy, who made it quite clear that he was a fake, sold out of paintings in a similar setup to what the real Banksy did in Central Park only a week earlier. This time, because the public had become largely aware of what the real Banksy had done, the outcome was entirely different.

An alternate look at workplace creeps

Transforming navigation icons

Navicon Transformicons are a simple set of navigation icons that transform when you interact with them. In their native state, they look like typical menu icons, but click on each and you'll get a progress bar, a couple different types of arrows, an X, a plus sign, and a dash (or minus sign). They're a neat way to add a little movement to your designs.
