Ogilvy Death of the Mouse 2.0

Ogilvy Frankfurt published “Mausetod 2.0″ (Death of the Mouse 2.0), a book designed for art directors, graphic designers, photographers and clients. Each page features an image designed to be a memory hook for an Adobe Photoshop or Indesign keyboard shortcut, making the mouse less necessary. The book is the second in a series dedicated to comfort, increased work efficiency and the complete extermination of the mouse. The book won a Gold award for Design and Imagery at the 2010 Epica Awards. Here’s fourteen samples from the book, each providing a clever (not always PC) play on word association.
