A collection of things that I picked up throughout the 2015. Seventeen it total. Have fun
1. Best Movie of the Year
2. Best TV Series of the Year
We are definitely living in the Renaissance of TV series. Most of them were really good, none send me on a watching marathon as much as Peaky Blinders. Soundtrack helped as well.
3. Best Anime of the Year
I was torn between Attack on Titan (which aired back in 2013) and One-Punch Man, but One-Punch Man is a true superhero and a wonderful concept.
4. Game of the Year
With Fallout 4 being the disappointment that it is, this goes to the best game I have ever played – Witcher 3. Every newsletter I haven’t written was because of it.
5. Best Comic Series of the Year
Trees (by Warren Ellis and Jason Howard). Trees from outer space. Win win. Buy here.
6. Live Gig of the Year
7. Best Music Video of the Year
Meta-textual video about videos. And the song has this old-school catchy-ness.
8. Live Performance Video of the Year
Blanck Mass have proven to be a more accessible version of FUCK BUTTONS and this show only proves its potential.
9. Album of the Year
Well, this one a hard choice. My favorite of the year is undoubtedly Shining (Nor) new stadium soundtrack International Blackjazz Society (but it doesn’t mean I played it most often)
10. Best Photo Series
11. Best Book I Read This Year
I have to admit, I haven’t read anything that was published in 2015. But there is one that was in 2013. And it is one of those rare books that present a new way of thinking instead of just boasting that they do. Uncommon sense, common nonsense by Jules Goddard and Tony Eccles. A fresh perspective on strategic thinking.
12. Best Brand-related Joke
Futurelabs are predicting the 2016 to be about anti-authenticity. So it means there are more where these come from. Yummy.
Whatever you call hipster – that is the essence of it.
13. Best Website Design of the Year
2014 was the AQUATILIS year, this time around I think SUBARU has ruled the web with its SCR project. But if you let me pick, I think I would still go with AQUATILIS (we haven’t improved that much this year).
Check it out here.
14. Best Ad of the Year
No, it’s not those Christmas ads. But I fell in love with this home insurance ad. Since it’s John Lewis, it’s close anyways.
15. Best Logo of the Year
This is what happens when you give architects to design logos. More of that please.
More on the project here.
16.Most Useful Platform
If you are looking for articulated ideas, MEDIUM has been one of the few places for that this year.
17. App of the Year
Memory freaks me out – we have so much little control and what and how much we remember of certain things. Journey for Android helps me keep track of places and things around. Just the details, but those are easiest to forget.
