Always been a fan of Tomato since being shown their work by my Art teacher at A Levels in his copy of their book Mmm Skyscraper I Love You, and this new 60 second movie by Tomato makes MSN almost seem cool. (no fault of Tomato that it doesn’t. Tomato makes it look infinitely better than it actually is in my opinion.)

I love Tumblr (I mean both my personal and design blogs are set up on the platform) but is anyone else really frustrated by their brand/UI inconsistencies across all platforms?

Just to give a few examples see their web, android app, iOS app, and the mobile web version on an ipad above.
