Very cool project from Dentsu (from Designboom): Newspaper to New Paper Project from Dentsu Tokyo for Ichida Garden.

Uniqlo does it again, introducing yet another flash web app to help promote the brand, this time in the form of a calendar that shuffles time-lapse videos of tilt-shift style photos. Looks great, and they’ll release it as a screensaver soon too. Via Marxy.
