    [ By WebUrbanist in Art & Street Art & Graffiti. ] Seed bombs and shotgun shell sprouts are not the only weapons in a guerrilla war for urban gardens and green street art – moss is a great material that can be rapidly adapted and deployed to make statements on city surfaces as well. Indeed, using mosses allows artists to go above and beyond the ground, shifting from horizontal to vertical spans for a different look and added visibility. And, as it turns out, creating moss wall art is not as difficult as you might guess – do-it-yourself directions are shown in detail…

    Whether you’re guest blogging for others, or you’re soon-to-be accepting guest bloggers on your own site, it’s important to make your requirements clear up-front.  Not only does this give your bloggers better direction on fulfilling your expectations, but it also provides clarity and a uniform writing tone on your blog.  We’ve all seen blogs where some of the writing is stellar and other posts leave much to be desired. A blog style guide can help change that. 1What is a Blog Style Guide? A style guide has its origins back in the 1800s, when the painstaking task of manually…
  • How To Choose Perfect Font Palettes

    22 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    How do you know which fonts to use? Picking the right font palette can supercharge your designs. Creating font palettes is as simple as choosing a font for your title, subtitle and body text. Using fonts that compliment your design takes a design from good to great. Here are some key tips on setting up a fantastic font palette. 1 Set Tone with Mood and Type Different fonts will appeal to different audiences. Always think about who the design is for. For example, Economica might be too serious for a 7 year old’s birthday party but ‘Crafty Girls’ is too playful for an office memo.

  • David Chipperfield sets the scene for the Neue Nationalgalerie's upcoming renovation with a new Berlin exhibition

    1 Oct 2014 | 2:33 pm
    In advance of the impending renovation of the famous Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, the new 'David Chipperfield: Sticks and Stones' exhibition opens today at the iconic venue - almost fifty years after its completion. Originally designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (notably the celebrated architect's last major construction), the gallery has been a landmark of Modernism since its opening in 1968. Its steel roof, touching lightly upon a series of eight columns, seemingly suspended in mid-air, defines its pared down aesthetic - a key element of its creator's oeuvre. It also…
  • The new XE marks Jaguar's first foray into 'affordable' luxury

    1 Oct 2014 | 11:01 am
    Unveiled with great fanfare in central London, the new XE is the car that’ll take Jaguar’s game up a notch or two. Parent company JLR is still ramping up the profits, but the big bucks are still coming from Land Rover, even though the Jaguar range has seen some major debuts in recent years. Volume drives profit in the auto industry, which is why the XE is such an important vehicle.  First you have to look beyond the rather excitable launch event (which had echoes of the painfully sincere futurism of GM’s grandly staged Motoroma events of the 1950s and 1960s) and the chunky…

    Another brace of Bentleys is making its way onto our roads, cementing this grand, old British brand's status as the ultimate creator of luxurious grand tourers (underpinned by German engineering and management nous). There are many claimants to this prestigious title, especially in a car market that feels saturated with high-end, big-cost cars pitched at the swelling wealth pool of the world's emerging markets. The Continental GT V8 S is a recent addition to the range. Bentley has always suggested that the hefty GT model would persist as a 'living classic', just as Porsche has…
  • Elmgreen & Dragset's retrospective at the National Gallery of Denmark explores loneliness and solitude in contemporary culture

To which, the one-time Wallpaper* guest editors Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset respond: 'It's yours.' That is to say, the characters that Elmgreen and Dragset have planted within their dystopian interiors - an innocent-but-damned baby, a forlorn teen in a hoodie, a body drowned in a concrete swimming pool - are alter egos for all of us.

  • Constructing Worlds: a new exhibition at the Barbican gives architectural photography the exposure it deserves

    Considering that the world’s very first photograph – or rather, the earliest known photograph made with a camera, the View from the Window at Le Gras by French scientist and inventor Joseph Nicéphore Niéce – was famously an architectural one (taken in 1826 or 1827), it’s surprising that this is the first major London exhibition to focus specifically on the extraordinary, ongoing relationship between photography and architecture. ‘Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age’ opened this week at the Barbican Art Gallery in London,…

Anyway, once I got out of film school I said, they will not let me fly the plane. So I’m going to build my own airport. I shot my first movie, What Do You Do All Day?, in twelve days, in 1995.

    There’s an old puzzle that philosophers like to ponder: how could you ever be certain that anyone else has a mind at all? The truth is that you can’t. Ultimately, even our closest relatives—people we’ve known for decades, or who gave birth to us, or vice versa—are closed books: you’ll never get direct access to their thoughts or emotions. It’s the sort of terrifying realization that might trigger an existential meltdown in the sanest of us. Yet when it comes to creativity, it’s actually enormously liberating.  By nature, human beings are comparers: our happiness depends, at…

    I finally had an opportunity to review The Sessions Color Calculator.  This is an interactive color wheel that helps designers select HTML, RGB, or CMYK colors and identifies color harmonies and schemes.  The Color Wheel works faster than a a typical color wheel or html color chart.  You can save HTML safe color values, CMYK color schemes, and RGB colors to an integrated clipboard and email the colors to colleagues or clients.  Colors may be selected and applied to both print and Web design – the Sessions color wheel color calculator saved me a great deal of time when I was doing…

    If you notice that you have to charge more often after you upgrade to iOS 7, don’t despair.   Here are some tweaks to keep your battery alive: Reduce the brightness.  The new white backgrounds are very bright, so you can stay on auto-brightness, but drag the bar to the left so not so bright. (Settings> Wallpapers and Brightness) Close unused apps! Double click on the home button and browse through the apps.  When you want to close one, just swipe up on the preview (not the icon) and it disappears. Turn off 3D on the standard home screen background and select a static image.

  • The Single Var Pattern in JavaScript

    Jacob Gube
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    One of the most beautiful things about JavaScript is its flexibility. The language gives developers a lot of slack by not giving us a lot of rules and conventions to deal with. A prime example: JavaScript allows us to create any type of variable, anywhere in our script (because it’s a dynamic programming language). That’s great news, but it can also be a double-edged sword if we don’t exercise a bit of caution. One popular way of working with JavaScript variables more effectively is the single var pattern. I first formally encountered this pattern in Stoyan Stefanov’s…
  • A List of CSS Style Guides for Inspiration

    Jacob Gube
    26 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    Creating a set of CSS conventions — often called a CSS style guide — can streamline your web development workflow. It’s useful for large teams and solo developers alike. CSS style guides are a group of documents that outline the coding style, best practices, and visual design properties (e.g. colors, layout grid dimensions, etc.) of a site. The goal of having a style guide is to maintain consistency across a product. If you’re in the process of creating a CSS style guide, or if you want to learn about the CSS practices that large-scale websites use, check out the…
  • 5 Standardized Methods for Writing CSS

    Jacob Gube
    24 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    CSS is hard to maintain and scale without a well-defined approach. Here are five CSS development methodologies and style guides that can help. 1. SMACSS SMACSS stands for Scalable and Modular Architecture for CSS. A core idea behind this CSS development approach is minimizing the depth of selectors in order to keep them modular as well as to lower dependency on the HTML structure. In SMACSS, there are five style-rule categories: Base, Layout, Module, State, and Theme. 2. CSS Guidelines CSS Guidelines is a comprehensive guide for writing maintainable CSS. It has rules such as limiting…

    This is an expensive knife block. My twenty-some-odd-old self probably would have not posted it back in the day because of the price, but my firmly-in-my-thirties self has a bit more disposable income. I hope you do too, of course, because then we could convince each other that we could afford to spend this much on a block, especially if we plan to have it for decades. Aged brass and a detachable cherry wood five-slot top will certainly last that long, and more, if cared for appropriately. Made in Japan.

    The humble field of trash bin design is unexciting to say the least; there’s just not much going on in the way of improvements. Muuto adds another un-fancy option to the mix. It’s just a simple bin with a lid, yet with a few extra noteworthy details. The exterior is streamlined, so it could just as easily live in your closet as a laundry basket- that gets points for versatility in the aesthetic department, don’t you think? When the lid is on, an interior trash bag is hidden by the lid’s lip. When the lid is off, it can hang on the side of the bin for easy access and…

Original design, true craftsmanship, and working directly with factories around the world, apparently. Will it work? Let’s hope so. Hem just opened for preorders, and I’ve got my eye on this Kuu Lamp ($149-$225). There’s no doubt you’ll be seeing more of the collection within the next several weeks, so prepare your house for some new additions (and your bank account for a few subtractions). The…

    These knob-like wooden things are magnets. Or, rather, these knob-like wooden things have magnets embedded within their rounded ends, to be precise. I bet you an imaginary nickel that these set of 6 magnets would look much nicer than any plastic magnets you’ve got hanging around, and I’d probably be right, unless you have some really cool plastic magnets that I don’t know about. Unlikely, but entirely possible. Apologies in advance, but it appears that this retailer is based in Singapore, so if you’re located elsewhere you might need to pay a shipping fee. Set of 6…

With the Islamic State on the border, construction has come to a halt, and the malls and other developments are being used to house the nearly 1.5 million refugees and internally displaced persons who have poured into Kurdistan.

    The legendary Frank Sinatra (1915–1998) can teach us a thing or two about engaging an audience. I stumbled upon this 1963 Playboy interview with Sinatra recently, and it's pure gold. "When I sing, I believe," says Sinatra. "I’m honest. If you want to get an audience with you, there’s only one way. You have to reach out to them with total honesty and humility." Whether we're talking about an entertainer or about life in general, you can't be indifferent, Frank says. People do not connect with indifference.

The Moth started in George Dawes Green's living room in 1997, but soon the storytelling club founded by Green started hosting events in cafes and clubs throughout New York City. The name "The Moth" came from the idea that people are attracted to stories the way moths are attracted to a flame.

The presentation was by a young Japanese man named Hiro Fujita. In November of 2010, Hiro was working happily as Planning Director at McCann Erickson in Tokyo when he was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

    Panino Organic Rice gifts a coastal view of Indonesia's rice patties and beachside. The pouch, created by Sciencewerk, features a perspective drawing, overlaid with a scalloped rectangular accent of color, themed according to the type of rice. The slitted sides allow the compressed rice to peek through, giving consumers a peek of what they are purchasing.   "Panino works together with local farmers to produce high quality organic rice, cultivated from one of the best agricultural lands in Indonesia, Banyuwangi. It uses seeds of local varieties that are developed and planted…

    19 Sep 2014 | 1:11 am
    Brightpoint Consulting recently released a small collection of interactive visualizations based on open, publicly available data from the US government. Characterized by a rather organic graphic design style and color palette, each visualization makes a socially and politically relevant dataset easily accessible. The custom chore diagram titled Political Influence [brightpointinc.com] highlights the monetary contributions made by the top Political Action Committees (PAC) for the 2012 congressional election cycle, for the House of Representatives and the Senate.

  • The Disappearing Planet: Comparing the Extinction Rates of Animals

    18 Sep 2014 | 1:05 pm
    The subtly designed A Disappearing Planet [propublica.org] by freelance data journalist Anna Flagg reveals the extinction rates of animals, caused by a variety of human-caused effects, including climate change, habitat destruction and species displacement. Divided into mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds, the interactive bar graph allows users to browse horizontally through the vast amount of species by order and family, and vertically by genus. Species in risk are highlighted in red, so that dense clusters denote related families (e.g. bears, parrots, turtles) that are specially…

Accordingly, by representing the distribution and frequency of programming languages, one can observe the continuous quest for better ways to solve problems, to…
  • Pi Visualized as a Public Urban Art Mural

    10 Sep 2014 | 1:23 pm
    Visualize Pi [tumblr.com] is a mural project that aimed to use popular mathematics to connect Brooklyn students to the community with a visualization of Pi. It was funded by a successful KickStarter project as proposed by visual artist artist Ellie Balk, The Green School Students, staff and Assistant Principal Nathan Affield. The mural seems to consist of different parts. A reflective line graph, reminiscent of a sound wave, represents the number Pi (3.14159...) by way of colors that are coded by the sequence of the prime numbers found in Pi (2,3,5,7), as well as height. Additionally, a…
  • The Key Players in the Middle East and their Relationships

    10 Sep 2014 | 12:48 pm
    Whom Likes Whom in the Middle-East? [informationisbeautiful.net] by David McCandless and UniversLab is a forced-network visualisation of key players & notable relationships in the Middle East. Next to its expressive aesthetic, the interactive features allow users to highlight individual nodes and its direct connections to others, as well as filter between the kind of possible relationships, such as "hate", "strained", "good" or "love". Reminds me a bit of Mapping the Relationships between the Artists who Invented Abstraction.

PillPack is a next-generation pharmacy that "...pre-sorts prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and vitamins into personalized packets, organized by date and time. This makes it easy to take the right meds at the right hour." I point you to it for a couple of reasons, first because of the elegance and (seeming) simplicity of the concept and its execution. And secondly, to emphasize that more and more design firms are trading their services for a piece of the…

    I don't know about you but my penmanship is awful. A decade or so ago, my brother bought me a beautiful fountain pen that, lately, I'm almost embarrassed to use. Early in my career I wrote and sketched daily, now handwriting is a secondary skill. As an devotee of good penmanship, my jaw dropped when I started going through the The Zaner-Bloser, Inc. / Sonya Bloser Monroe Collection at The Weinberg Memorial Library at The University of Scranton—it documents the history of American penmanship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries through a company that, "...prepared students for…

    It’s starting to feel like Autumn in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut! When the cold nights arrived two weeks ago, the Hibiscus that have bloomed voraciously all summer long with the most fantastic, huge, apricot blossoms took a turn for the worse. Mid week, the Zinnia and Black Eyed Susan’s were starting to fade. When I saw Mums popping up in gardens all over town it became clear to me it was time to switch out the seasonal flowers in my garden pots.I thought about waiting until we were back from vacation, but then I got TWO calls to show The Country House for the upcoming…

    From the moment we walked into the new old stone house, there was one thing that was apparent. The kitchen wasn’t going to do…for ANYONE! It would not even work for a non-cook, cook. There wasn’t a refrigerator! (Or a dishwasher.) It’s got a jagged, horrible shape with many un-necessary doorways. They’ve managed to create a terrible flow. There also happens to be a built-in wood diner booth across from the range that makes you wonder: why on God’s green earth did they go to all the trouble to make it an eat-in kitchen when there isn’t even a…

    “Some people say to me: ‘Oh John, how could you put something so hideous in front of your house!’ But they don’t understand that bad taste is an essential ingredient in the pudding. It takes the curse off ghastly good taste.” After reading that, I remembered back to the late 1990s when I worked for Linda Dresner. (BTW: the WSJ recently called her “an aesthetic maverick.”) Linda had a similar approach to fashion and putting a look together as John Richardson does to his home decor. There was always one element -in the pudding so to speak- that would take an ensemble to…

    As you all know, we have been searching high and low for a place to call home that will accommodate our life Monday through Friday, not just on the weekends. At practically 40 years old, living in a noisy studio apartment or a Brooklyn flat (without a true kitchen – it only has a burner for boiling tea!) five days a week does not exactly satisfy our quality of life requirements. Our house in Connecticut truly feels like home, but it is beyond silly to live full time 90 miles and a 2+ hour train ride away from where you work.I have made it no secret.

It was a beautiful space. I had pale avocado walls in the living and dining room, high gloss Mincemeat in the kitchen, and my walls in…

    29 Sep 2014 | 5:48 am
    I've just seen Dave Gray's post on the paradoxes of organisation. Oh, this is a wonderfully rich area and something I'm looking forward to reading.Over the years (based upon evolution), I've noticed several patterns from conflicts (innovation vs efficiency, agile vs six sigma) to misunderstandings to paradoxes. From Ashby's to Jevons' paradox to the impacts of componentisation then there is lots of interesting material.Four of my favourite paradoxes in business (with each argument described by a scale from 0 to 1) are :-Predictability (of what) + Predictability (of when) ≈ 1 (i.e. we can…

If this wasn't the case, my strategy template wouldn't have touched so many nerves.Depressingly less than 30% of large companies have any form of scenario planning and of those less than 4% have any formal means of situational awareness.

    ... why isn't it more commonly used?For over a decade I've used mapping to startling effect having outwitted much greater foes and reduced waste in existing environments. From many hundreds of millions in new opportunities, cost savings and raised funds. For those few who use mapping in earnest, the smorgasbord of management doctrine feels outdated and current popular tools simple artefacts of a deeper process. Lessons such as the use of multiple management methods become ingrained, tactical gameplay around ecosystems becomes second nature and strategy takes on a new meaning. There is no…

  • New Small-House book tidbits: Metal roofing as siding

    Katie Hutchison
    10 Sep 2014 | 8:47 am
    Corrugated metal, often used as roofing, serves as siding here.In my upcoming small-houses book, a few of the houses cleverly adapt materials for different uses. Metal roofing, for instance, on a house might appear as siding on an outbuilding, or vice versa. In both appliations, the metal is highly durable. Its use in different locations can help tie different buidlings or different elements of one building together. Since there's a huge range of metal products that are adaptable to both installation types, there's plenty of room to get creative, all while potentially unifying a…

    Katie Hutchison
    21 Jul 2014 | 5:41 am
    Here's another clever object-turned-planter à la the planted bench that I posted not long ago. What's especially brilliant about this intervention is that the bed frame isn't actually planted. It's merely placed such that the plantings appear to emerge from the frame and spill over like generous bed clothes. Our expectations of what a bed is and how its frame might be planted enable the gardener's slight of hand. Plus, it's fun to see a well-realized pun flourish. by Katie Hutchison for House Enthusiast

But there are a few steely pirates out on our roads. Individuals who challenge the safety odds and launch themselves through hail and heat on their trusty mounts. They don’t own a stitch of Lycra, the Argus is something you line the cat’s litter box with and the city streets are something to be savoured and explored. These are characters in…

    In an earthquake – which do you think will fare better. skyscrapers or mountains? Have you noticed that when nature creates something, it’s quite random in construction. Mountains aren’t created with perfectly straight rocks. Yet when humans design something, our geometry and thinking is very linear. We love the use of straight, angular lines that directly challenge the Earth’s elements. It’s as if we believe that our human understanding of mathematics is enough to trick nature into submission (cause of course we are more powerful than nature itself). Then it…

    Creating delightful experiences doesn’t happen by chance. To do it right, you have to think about the promise you offer and how you’re delivering it. To do this you need scenarios to provide the context. In this article, I show you how the promise, vision and scenario work together. Scenarios are used throughout so much of the design process. Creating and using scenarios is really a design fundamental. At the User Interface 19 Conference, Kim Goodwin will show you how to create scenarios that identify and resolve design issues.

    Can you experience data? Sometimes visualization gets you part of the way there, putting data into context, serving as a trigger for your memory, and all that. But only so much can happen through the computer screen. I want to feel data the way I want to taste the food in pictures. It's one thing to see something good, and it's another to be at a restaurant to taste a dish direct from the source. Maybe we can use food to understand data. Instead of charts that use visual cues such as geometry and color, we can use ingredients at varying levels to represent variables in a dataset. Food has the…

Todd Schneider made an interactive that lets you punch in the cities yourself and then watch the process look for an optimum route. Fun to play with even if you're not into processes.

We design things that can be provided as a service, but don't have to be—tools that developers at any level can easily set up and use themselves. We don't want to lock users into proprietary platforms, relying on black boxes they can't take apart. That's why we work on individual components, modular building blocks that anyone can use for better maps. We build things so you can build things. Relatively new (at least to me), the collection of projects so far makes me think it's worth keeping an eye on the work that…

David Sedaris took the latter and wrote about his experience for the New Yorker. At the end of my first sixty-thousand-step day, I staggered home with my flashlight knowing that I'd advance to sixty-five thousand, and that there will be no end to it until my feet snap off at the ankles.

Globally, eight of the 10 large countries most at risk are in Asia. The Netherlands would be the most exposed, with more than 40 percent of its country at risk, but it also has the world's most advanced levee system, which means in practice its risk is much lower.

How Technology Becomes Nature in Seven Steps: 1) Envision: The idea stage (e.g. the time machine - still not invented or even a prototype) 2) Operational: Experimental stage - things that work in labs. 3) Applied: Transitional stage between invention and acceptance (e.g. Google Glass…

Some shopping trolleys now have useful clips onto which you can attach your shopping list – a useful little enhancement to our everyday lives (and especially useful for people like me, with a brain like a sieve and hence a necessary list making habit). For some reason, visitors to a local supermarket often leave their lists on the trolleys afterwards. Maybe they had no idea that we have, in some odd kind of retail voyeurism, started collecting them, studying them and decoding them. It’s fair to say that this is a pretty odd thing to do. It’s a…

    Last week we were in New York, very briefly, for a hectic series of meetings, breakfasts and a lunchtime seminar.

First of all, the Italian Futurism show at the Guggenheim, which started with Marinetti’s famous manifesto… …and then documented pretty much every painting, sculpture, design and building associated with the movement. Sadly the gallery goons prevented us from taking particularly great shots, but here’s a selection of what was on view.

So, prior to a recent trip to Athens, we did notice that several sites named Cine Thisio as one of the best movie theatres in the world, but didn’t take it that seriously. Now we’ve been, we take it all back. This sweet little outdoor cinema sits below the Acropolis and is just, well, great. You enter at dusk and everything seems pretty normal. Then you notice the subtle sign on the floor telling you when it was built. And you wonder why there’s a statue in the plants in front of the screen. And you…

    Compensating for different material widths when scaling your laser cut designs Parametric Design is awesome, and makes for fewer headaches when it comes to changing a few details here and there.

Sometimes all those numbers can get a little complex but Martin Raynsford has developed a way to ‘cheat’ the parametric design process while scaling down his neat little laser cut catapults. Because the design consists entirely of laser cut parts, his mini catapult can be scaled using a base version of the file where material width acts as the key…

    Shutterstock’s new infographic dives into finding which colors are trending for this year through their new infograhic, Color Trends. We know that red represents courage but it can also be associated with anger and blood. So it’s interesting when a nation chooses to douse its national flag in red. So that begs the question: why would a country risk choosing a color that can be associated with something so negative? As it turns out, every corner of the world has its own favorite color. And while trends do change (and who knows what colors were dominant back then), it’s…

It’s interesting how the artist was able to illustrate the cars to suit their respective movies. Moreover, it’s fascinating how the artist paired the manufacturing year to the movie release date.

A large kitchen was installed to cater to the needs of the food-loving husband-and-wife couple. We then conceived the entire living space by taking the kitchen as a focal point, with a mix of various other activities and functions unfolding around it. Within this single-roomed space, we also created a box-like structure with a loft bedroom…

The concept therefore is that the whole site is a garden surrounded with a peripheral wall filled with content, that’s…

The pitched roof of the single-storey extension rises from behind the roof of the original house, resulting in a V-shaped gap between the two. This incorporates…

That’s about to change. frog has been invited to participate in 30 weeks, a program supported by Google and Hyper Island that aims to give designers the skills they need to be effective startup entrepreneurs.

    10 Sep 2014 | 4:55 pm
    Fluidity and motion are what we experience in real life. The best moments are split seconds in time when we careen aimlessly like tumbleweed, and suddenly realize, with stunning clarity, that you are going somewhere. Usually, for me, these moments come with a soundtrack. So my ability to quickly access music should be able to keep up with my journey. In 2013, Beats by Dre co-founder Steve Lamar approached frog with an intriguing proposition: create headphones that have universal appeal and classic cool. We wanted to design headphones from a technical standpoint that would sound great on the…

    Founded in Turkey 1954, Beko specialises in electrical consumer goods. Worldwide, Beko-branded goods are sold every two seconds. Sagi Haviv of Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv has just finished redesigning the company’s wordmark. He kindly answered a few questions about the four-month project. What did you feel was lacking with the old Beko design? We were unhappy with the typography and the lack of balance in the existing wordmark. When you set the word in caps, you inevitably get an unbalanced composition with the very closed B and E on the left and the widely open O on the…

    The BMW K1600, the visionary motorcycle by Krugger is an excellent touring machine. The concept motorbike, with six cylinders, seven computers, multiple drive modes and adaptive headlights, is very complex. The Belgian team explains: “Building a bike is easy….building a bike and keeping all the technology of the K1600 is more difficult. The biggest problem was including all the electronics, from the computers to the ABS box, and even small stuff like sensors.” It’s the kind of machine that sends journalists into raptures, and wins Motorcycle Of The Year awards. via

In each of her illustrations, the Moscow based artist manages to mix Russian pop culture, history, and her own personal flair to create excellent scenes that drag the viewer in. Her work uses the power dynamic between men and women, as well as the…

    If you were to open an art history book and look at any artwork after the Greek and Hellenistic (850 b.c.–31 b.c.) you’ll notice that the he most common recurring subject aside from war, was women. Depictions of women vary from culture to culture and period to period, yet what does not change is the gaze of both the painter and the audience. It’s well documented that the majority of well-known artisans were male, after all women were expected to bear children and run the household – this their learning activities centered around child rearing and home development.

    25 Sep 2014 | 1:24 pm
    It's hard to accept you might be wrong and don't know what you're talking about. That's because we're socially ingrained to think that questions are a burden, that we need to have the right answers all the time. And if you don't you could be seen as an impostor. We learn that it's wrong to ask people questions, such as "why did you paint your house that color" or "why are you still dating that person." You can be seen as offensive for asking why. Why? (See what we did there.) Because it implies that someone made the wrong decision. But that doesn't necessarily have to be the case, and it…

    A lamp that changes color based on your facial expression: Wired cover story this month: In the Programmable World, All Our Objects Will Act as One Just announced: Arduino Yún with on-board WiFi Vittorio Cuculo took an Arduino, an RGB LED, and an IKEA lamp and programmed the system to recognize your facial expression and change the color of the light based on how it thinks you’re feeling. I’ll say that again. How it thinks you’re feeling. Sure, it’s a simple interaction and it may be easy to argue the utility of such a system, but projects like this represent…

    Everybody has worn a lanyard at least once in their lives. This can be attributed to the fact that every establishment, institution and business employs lanyards as a part of their day to day activities. Every week, hundreds of wholesale orders are placed by schools, corporations, organizations, bazaar and exhibit organizers and charities because lanyards are affordable and fully customizable. The cord of each lanyard can be printed with the designated logo and text. To fully appreciate them, here is a brief rundown about their history.

    If you’re an ambitious no-nonsense go getter, chances are you already keep a treasury; and if it’s not literally in the bank, then usually it’s found mostly in the prizes that you’ve earned and kept. Now these tokens of achievement can come in a variety of types (usually plaques, certificates, or medals), but for people belonging to elite clubs or organizations who prefer elegance and formality, smaller items are found in these collections. Award pins and badges are oft to be given out more to politicians and charity workers, but any go-getter can earn them. These…
  • Golf Shoes and Their 5 Construction Materials

    Dale Ferguson
    3 Sep 2014 | 4:01 am
    Golf shoes were first introduced in 1891. During that time, players had difficulty hitting a golf ball. This is because their shoes don’t prevent their feet from sliding or slipping while swinging a golf putter. Spikes Spikes are thin, pointed protrusions on the bottom of the golf shoes. They help shoes grip onto wet or steep ground so that you won’t slip as you play golf. The spikes are manufactured from either metal or plastic. Metal spikes are heavy and produce a clacking sound as you walk on the pavement. These spikes tear up grass as you walk on soil. Shoes typically need to…

Bedel, who works under the moniker Bedelgeuese, makes both physical and digital collages that form a wild amalgamation of botanical, zoological, and anatomical imagery. For the sake of context it’s important to note that Bedel’s work follows in the same vein as Argentinian art director and designer Juan Gatti who translated his love for gardening and the human form into similar collage work over the last few decades.

    Let me start with full disclosure: I love back-splash and I have strong opinions concerning what works and what doesn’t. First let’s talk functionality. All the steam, heat and grease around a cook-top are not very friendly towards wallpaper or wall paint. It just makes sense to install something that withstands the humidity and is easy to clean. When considering materials, remember the more porous the tile, the more difficult it is to clean. This is one reason why solid glass back-splash has become so popular. It also looks amazing! Now for design. In my mind, the most important…

    2 Oct 2014 | 2:04 am
     Eric Fischl hates art fairs. ‘They’re like speed dating events,’ he says sardonically. But an artist always needs subject matter and one day figurative artist found himself asking the question; ‘what if I make the art galleries and art fairs themselves the subject matter?’ Art fairs and gallery openings make up the subject matter for his first exhibition with Gallery II, based in Wharf Road, London. People from all kinds of backgrounds and of all of kinds of fashions and temperaments are depicted making their way through galleries, observing paintings as much as each other.

    At the movie theater, waiting for the bus, or looking in the bathroom mirror – these situations seem ordinary except that in this photo series the characters are wearing a strange and interesting outfit. Dressed in a full space suit and helmet, these mock astronauts are strange additions to the landscape of everyday life. Italian photographer Graziano Panfili said of his project “This series of portraits and interviews have been made to people that have big dreams and [have] a small rocket parked in their backyard.” Source
  • Dazzling animations make the hexagon a psychedelic experience

    Steph Guinan

    The tumblr blog Hexeosis has a title that sounds like it’s a type of disease. But rather than being a sickness such as tuberculosis, this project is focused on the six-sided shape, the hexagon. The suffix “-osis” indicates a condition or state, especially an abnormal state.  Who knew that an abnormal state of excessive hexagons could look so good. In the series of images, the six-sided shapes are stacked, overlaid, expanded, and moved across each image square. The results of these multicolored movements are a visual delight, dazzling, and at times, overwhelming. Filled with…

    Brazilian photographer Luciana Urtiga is not afraid to use technology to express herself. In a series of black and white self-portraits, she alters, edits and duplicates images to create a reality that is confined only by the limits of her imagination. Her digital manipulations reference mirrors with consecutive duplicated faces nested within each other. The theme of the disappearing face is repeated in several other pieces including one called ‘Back to Sky’ where the clouds overtake the artist’s gaze. Select pieces include animation to offer an added element to the vision of…

Following the tale of two characters, Swinehart shows two opposing realities side-by-side. The split in these realities diverge from a single point in a conversation. Albeit a dramatized contrast, the two possible outcomes show how one’s words and interactions can shape one’s reality. Nate Swinehart is a left-handed animator and comic book artist living in Los Angeles, CA. He…

  • Crank Up Computer Speed With Intel Core i7-5960X 8-Core CPU

    Foster D. Coburn III
    1 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    If you've purchased a computer in the past few years, you most likely got a processor with four cores. This means CPU can perform four tasks at the same time. Some of those processors allow hyperthreading which splits each core into two pieces. On a hyperthreaded machine, you can run eight threads at a time. Eight is good, but hyperthreading means that each thread is running a bit slower than if the processor was not hyperthreaded. Intel has now released the Intel Core i7-5960X Haswell-E 8-Core Processor that has eight full cores running at 3.0 GHz. Of course those eight cores can be…

    I always find it interesting that I tend to get the same question a number of times from different users. Sometimes when someone invests in Geek Time, the question can be very detailed. This is one that isn't a detailed question, but there is an unintended side effect of making what seems to be a basic change. My eyesight certainly isn't as good as it was when I first sat in front of a computer and that is likely true of many of you. This leads users to get into their Windows settings (see the dialog box below) to change the font size to something larger. While this might make the text in…

A perfectly styled, placed and angled mirror can work wonders on a small or darkened room by completely transforming how the room looks.

Placing a mirror on a wall opposite a window or entrance will reflect incoming light and brighten the room. A bold, decorative or oversized mirror can become a great visual focal point. Remember to…

    Neo2 was born in 1994 like a fanzine called Neomanía created by Ipsum Planet, a creative studio based in Madrid. It was printed in a format that was a little bit larger than A-5 and only in two colours. The fanzine’s first edition was subtitled “Long life to the finest underground” which was a declaration of principles. Step by step, with effort and reinvestment, they moved from duotones to a four-colour process, from small format to a larger one, from one to ten issues a year. Nowadays, Neo2 keeps on being an independent magazine -100% Spanish-, which focuses on creativity in all…

    2014 is an important year for Leica. The brand turns 100 years and its famous series M turns 60. Because of this, they have decided to release a very special edition, an authentic recreation of the legendary M. In these days, a digital camera without LCD screen and without an advanced menu of options is not common at all. However, this is how the recently launched M Edition 60 is built; a camera that only features basic yet essential options like speed, lens opening, sensibility and white balance. At first sight, the more complete the camera is, the better it is but this motto is starting to…

Oprisco spends large amounts of time scouring flea markets and resale shops to collect props, costumes, and other items for each shot which he often sketches beforehand in a sketchbook, with the final shoot requiring 2-3 days of preparation. Earlier this year in an interview with 500xp  he was asked to give advice to amateur/student…

  • “I” vs. “we” for the small business owner

    Tom Nagel
    23 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    In the past year or two I’ve read a few books and articles that encourage freelance designers and small business owners to avoid referring to themselves in the plural as a way of making their operation look bigger than it really is. For example, if you’re a sole proprietor, the argument is that there’s nothing wrong with saying “I provide website and graphic design services” instead of “We provide website and graphic design services.”  The primary reason is that you could be doing yourself a disservice by trying to make yourself appear to be…
  • Nine warning signs of a difficult design client

    Tom Nagel
    16 Sep 2014 | 12:37 pm
    Most designers will, at some point, work with a client who is difficult to please. Even if you work through all the challenges and frustrations and somehow manage to satisfy the client, the final design often ends up being worse due to the client’s micromanagement or ill-advised preferences. What if you knew in advance that a prospective client would be difficult, so you could spare yourself the trouble of meeting their unrealistic expectations? Well, in many instances you can, if you look for these nine warning signs: The client has gone through more than one designer already, and…
  • The pros and cons of selling web hosting

    Tom Nagel
    9 Sep 2014 | 1:36 pm
    If you’re a web designer, you’ve probably had more than one client ask you about hosting: Where will my site be hosted? Do you provide hosting? Can I continue hosting my site with my current provider? Some clients are particularly hands-off and need someone to handle everything relating to their website, including domain registration, hosting, and help with email setup.  Designers and agencies with clients like this typically do one of two things: They point the client in the direction of a recommended hosting provider, and perhaps guide them through the signup process.  This…
  • Are you acting in the best interests of your clients?

    Tom Nagel
    5 Sep 2014 | 1:00 pm
    One frustration I have with our industry is that some designers don’t always act in their clients’ best interests. There are several notable ways in which this problem manifests itself: Not addressing the client’s business needs. Designers take pride in the fact that they aren’t merely artists; they solve problems for their clients. All too often, however, designers fall into the trap of trying to make something look nice, and they lose sight of the big picture. Websites with image-heavy splash pages are the perfect example of this, as are sites that don’t…
  • How clients attempt to take over the design process (and what to do about it)

    Tom Nagel
    14 Sep 2012 | 6:07 am
    Throughout my career I’ve never had to fire a client, but looking back, there are several times I probably should have. And in every case, in one way or another, it’s because the client attempted to take over the design process. Creating a website typically involves several steps: discovery, planning, design, development, testing, final revisions, and then launch. In my experience, the design phase is the toughest to get through, because it’s where problems with communication and expectations are most likely to arise. It’s when you find out whether you’ve got a…
