    I have to admit it, while Design Public was quick to hop on Facebook, tweet tweet tweet and Pin away early on, we arrived really late to the Instagram party! But it’s probably a good thing, or else we never would have had any time to get any other work done. Instagram is so much fun to play on that we have to drag ourselves off the app. At bedtime, I tell myself I’m going to just check in for five minutes and then realize an hour has passed, which is probably why I feel like a zombie most mornings. We’re still experimenting with what kind of posts you’d like to see…

    Allow us to explain the title of this article. When we first decided to post on the topic of dog coat colors, we weren’t going to talk about the most popular dog coat colors. That article would actually only come under the category of “most popular dog breeds” since most people who love specific dog breeds would not differentiate further based on dog coat colors. On the contrary, this article will focus on dog coat colors which are typically seen around the world as well as their genetics and other factors that they affect.

  • Intricate works: new scented candles by Brooklynites Calico Wallpaper and Joya

    28 Aug 2015 | 9:18 am
    Two creative studios are rarely as well matched as Calico Wallpaper and Joya. The two Brooklynites have joined forces to produce a trio of scented candles worthy of every mantelpiece. Each vessel is a true testament to Calico Wallpaper's intricate process; they are delicately marbled by hand using the studio's signature techniques. The candles are then poured by hand in small batches by Joya, who've devised a sustainable, domestically-made wax blend and created the enigmatic fragrances.

  • Mums the word: Trussardi's 'La Grande Madre' exhibition opens in Milan

    28 Aug 2015 | 8:32 am
    Since artistic director Massimiliano Gioni came on board in 2002, the Nicola Trussardi Foundation has become famous for using the city of Milan as its own roving art-space. Usually, this involves commandeering a hidden basement, a crumbling palazzo, a public mall or, in the case of Maurizio Cattelan’s controversial 2004 mise-en-scene featuring three hanged children, an old oak tree on a traffic junction near the canals.  But for its most recent exhibition, 'La Grande Madre', which opened this week, the Foundation went rogue – or rather, fully traditional.

    28 Aug 2015 | 3:10 am
    By the time he died in 2004 at 96, Henri Cartier-Bresson was long established as the grand-père of photo-journalism and street photography, the man of the Decisive Moment. That book, published in 1954 with a cover by Matisse, explored his idea that the best photographs capture something essential, something that spoke of a larger truth. And that you had to wait to get the proper alignment of people in a particular place. 'To take a photograph means to recognise, simultaneously and within a fraction of a second‚ both the fact itself and the rigorous organisation of visually…

It has its own laser guide system that shows you exactly where the hole’s about to get formed, so no guess work. It also has a retractable plastic sheath that covers the drill bit to prevent injuries, acts as a ruler to measure hoe deep you’re penetrating, and to also collect the dust that falls while drilling. Hidden underneath its smoothly ergonomic exterior is also a metal…

Here are some of the stats they cite: - Mothers are primary breadwinners in 40% of U.S. families. - The number of stay-at-home dads has doubled since 1989. - This reversal in traditional gender roles is what the filmmakers are calling The Big Flip. - Women are expected…

  • The Many, Many Problems With “Follow Your Passion”

    William MacAskill
    28 Aug 2015 | 6:50 am
    A lot of career advice is built around slogans like “follow your heart” or “follow your passion.” A popular YouTube video, “What If Money Was No Object?” narrated by British writer Alan Watts, suggests that unless you ask yourself “What makes you itch?” and pursue the answer, you will “spend your life completely wasting your time.” Taken literally, however, the idea of following your passion is terrible advice.

That tidal shift from the concept of task management to time management is responsible for what has today become a monumental issue: We are all way too busy, scrambling to get…

    [ By Steph in Architecture & Public & Institutional. ] This giant hunk of pink marble in the middle of a Zurich car park isn’t a sculpture, exactly; it’s a place to relieve yourself in the open air so you don’t go stinking up the city. So-called ‘pissoirs’ can be found all over Europe, ranging from ornate Victorian designs resembling gazebos to portable plastic contraptions to cylindrical urinals that actually retract into the ground.

You kind of have to if you’re willing to use the ‘Kiss Lid’ by Korean designer Jang WooSeok.

  • Zero UI — The Future of Interfaces

    Jacob Gube
    28 Aug 2015 | 3:00 am
    Are we in the era of Zero UI? Not quite, but we’re getting close. Zero UI is the concept of removing the barrier between user and device, and having a more seamless interaction with technology. Industry advancements are moving towards not only more intuitive and integrated pieces of tech, but also an environment that creates less disconnect from our world, providing authentic, meaningful interactive spaces. Zero UI is all about how we as the user interact with our content. Typically we have a device being interacted with directly through a touchscreen, or indirectly with a remote…

The containers have a food safe urethane coating, so they’re entirely appropriate for keeping snacks sorted. Of course, they’d also be right at home in a bathroom storing cotton balls and q-tips or in a bedroom for jewelry and odds and ends.

    Great article by Benedict Evans who shares a lot of good information on why Microsoft is going to die. The apps that people want on smartphones are not being written for desktop Windows anyway. Uber doesn’t have a desktop Windows app, and neither does Instacart, Pinterest or Instagram. The apps and services that consumers care about are either smartphone-only or address the desktop using the web, with only partial exceptions for the enterprise. You can’t tempt developers to support Windows Phone by saying ‘it’s easy to deploy your desktop app to mobile’ if there…

    Tom Fishburne shares a pretty funny comic on how to give and receive feedback. While this is from a Marketing standpoint, we can (as designers) also learn from this. For us in the creative industry, getting buy-in to our ideas or concepts is paramount. I’ve personally have experienced every one of this feedback. Sometimes delivered in a rather unpleasant manner. As Designers and Design Thinkers, we have to seek creative ways to deal with such feedback that goes beyond just doing good work. Often this includes being vigilant with meeting minutes or what agencies call “client…

    One of the key activities in Design Thinking is doing design. Hence the irony that Design Thinking actually involves design doing. Not exactly in what designers do, but brainstorming solutions, prototyping them, learning and validating, iterating and improving. Rinse and repeat. I like to use the analogy of simulating and experimenting during Chemistry lab to describe the Design activity in our workshops. For example the experiment of splitting “H” and “O” from H2O. I could never get my test tube with the Hydrogen to pop in my first go. I would need to try the process…

    W3C standards have created a beautiful ruleset for web developers to create ubiquitous behavior in website layouts. These rules are much more commonplace and have been adopted by professionals in every area. Unfortunately the one area that is somewhat lagging is browser support. Modern browsers have jumped onto the HTML5 and CSS3 bandwagon as it scurries off into our distant future. But that wagon left behind a few stragglers, namely old versions of Internet Explorer that get scarce usage around the world. I’d like to focus on a handful of HTML/CSS specs with a deeper look into their…

  • Brass, Walnut & Technology: Love Hultén's Beautiful Furniture Combines Old-School and Hi-Tech

    26 Aug 2015 | 10:02 am
    There are not many designers who could take the concept of a 19th-Century writing desk and turn it into a modern-day soldering station with a built-in computer. There are fewer designers still who could then actually build the thing. But take a look at this:As you can see, Gothenburg-based Love Hultén is not your average designer. What you see above is his piece called Tempel, a combination storage unit, soldering station and computer workstation. The integration of electronic equipment such as a built-in high-end computer and a 2.1 speaker system really enables it to function as a high-tech…

    28 Aug 2015 | 8:52 am
    Preparations are underway for the U.S. vs. Japan giant robot fighting match. As you probably remember, Team Japan's skipper, Kogoro Kurata, accepted the challenge under the condition that melee combat be part of the contest. "Come on, guys, make [your robot] cooler," Kurata said at the time. "Just building something huge and sticking guns on it [is so] Super American."That means MegaBots is going to have to retool their 15-foot-tall Mark II with at least one arm that can punch, grab or wrassle. They'll have to upgrade the armor to withstand whatever Kurata's Suidobashi Heavy Industry 'bot…

But this year they received a commission that must've had them scratching their heads: The client wanted a table shaped like an ellipse.That's because the client, Alex Bellos, is a somewhat eccentric mathematician who wanted a way to physically experience a basic principle of geometry:Of course, having a custom table made seems like a lot of trouble to go through, just to confirm something discovered by the Greeks some millennia ago.

    Data and information are not inherently boring. The key is to select the appropriate (and accurate) data to support your message. Yet, it also matters how you bring the data alive, giving it context and meaning. One of the masters of displaying data in live talks is Swedish medical doctor and researcher, Hans Rosling, whom I've talked about often on this site and in my books (we were both keynoters at Tableau 2014 in Seattle as well; he's a wonderful man). His latest short presentation was posted this week and it's a great reminder of how to present a visualization in a simple, clear, and…

    23 Jun 2015 | 6:59 am
    When I wrote the first edition of Presentation Zen back in 2007, I said that presentations are better when they are prepared and delivered in the spirit of truly wanting to make a difference and a belief in the power of sharing ideas. The secret to this spirit or approach is contribution. This is a key part of Presentation Zen. It's not about showing off. It's not about impressing. It's not about winning (or losing). I quoted the incredible Benjamin Zander who said this when speaking to a group of remarkably talented young musicians: “This is the moment — this is the most important moment…

    Just because a chart is correct, it does not mean it's not misleading. Here's an example: Back in the USA, on March 12, US Senator Ted Cruz and NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden went head to head at a hearing on the President’s FY2016 budget request arguing as to what they thought NASA’s priorities are today. Sen. Cruz is known to be a climate-change skeptic and has often said that NASA should focus on space exploration and leave earth science to other agencies. Although Cruz and Bolden disagreed strongly, reports are that the hour-long meeting was nonetheless cordial. The interesting…
  • Scientifically Proven Ways to Persuade & Influence Others

    A good book I often recommend is: Yes!: 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Persuasive by Dr. Robert B. Cialdini et al. I first read the book when it came out in 2008. The book is designed for professionals who are interested in becoming better at understanding how to persuade or influence others. The book may also help you understand why you decide to do the things you do. Even if you are a researcher or teacher or a medical doctor, and so on, and not a business person, it's still important to understand how people are (or can be) influenced and persuaded by your words and behaviors.

    Holly Becker

    I can’t wait to tell you about Mapiful because I just love maps and minimalist black and white street maps are very much trending for interiors. Plus, decorating with maps has long been a favorite of designers worldwide. Thing is, when you live outside of a mega “cool” city, it’s often impossible to find maps for your spot, and if you do, even harder to find something you like. I’ve found several of my current city that are either ornate and vintage from flea markets (and expensive) or are designed by the town for our travel and tourism shop and are very generic…

I just knew I had to own A Bunch Of Wild Flowers because it’s different but also so cheery and bright. Minted stocks photographic prints but also illustration, prints of collage and…
  • Painting My Workspace Pink Ground!

    So I had this idea before Aidan was born to paint my entryway pink. I ordered Pink Ground from Farrow & Ball and hired a painter. The second he swiped it on, I grew more skeptical with each stroke. I needed to be a believer and 100% on team pink before allowing him to go any further and I just wasn’t. It was definitely the wrong choice for the space and I realized that it was because the entry has no windows and the color looked quite muddy there and absorbed the little light I had instead of reflect it. I needed something bright, even a bit flashy and shiny…

For visual authenticity, a brief history on how the company came to be is scripted on the back of the jar surrounded by illustrations."Del Viejo makes the world’s most unique salsa: from the rare datil pepper.

    In the small village of Hnanice, in the South Moravian winegrowing region of the Czech Republic, is Kořínek Winery. With a few different varieties of wine, they wanted to have some noticeable differences between each one. Pergamen was tasked with creating a distinct logo and labels for their wine range.“The winery's vineyards are located at the border of the national park in the valley of the Thaya River (Czech: Dyje). Therefore, we decided to name the basic range of wines ‘Greetings from the National Park’ and chose illustrations of animals living in the surroundings as the main…

  • Snagit/Screencast is a great way to communicate with your clients

    24 Aug 2015 | 1:45 pm
    Of all the productivity tools I've ever used, Snagit is the most usefulAnd I use lots of different tools. Snagit allows me to sit at my computer and easily record the screen (or a portion of it) and create a voice-over. In a matter of seconds, I publish it to Screencast (another Techsmith tool), a link is automatically copied to my clipboard, and I paste the link into an email or text message for forwarding to my client. The process itself takes a matter of seconds. The fact that I can speak my point and record the screen, rather than type it out and attach images, saves me countless hours.

  • {40th Birthday} BLT Sandwiches

    Amy Beth Cupp Dragoo
    21 Aug 2015 | 5:46 am
    As you know, I eat a BLT once a year – just when tomatoes are at their peak. (This set of tips on getting the freshest flavor out of tomatoes on Food 52 couldn’t have come along at a better time!) I tend to get quite particular about my ingredients, so I don’t want to eat a BLT when the tomatoes are just ho-hum, you know? I want them at the height of the season, or I don’t want un-cooked tomatoes at all. I typically make and eat BLT sandwiches for my birthday lunch, but this year we’ll be traveling…to Montreal! At the end of the day I’m not…

    I am soaking up the last bits of Summer in New England while the Mr is traveling for work this week. Without hesitation, I decided to hide away in the country and eat well at home. This is something I have not done nearly enough since the New Old Stone House renovation dragged on..and on…and on..and on…and on! Renovation stress + Cocktails + Restaurant Food = not healthy. The local produce is so full of flavor this time of year – it barely needs any preparation to enhance it. A sprinkle of salt and a little heat? Perhaps. But that is about the extent of it! Even though the…

    Late last Summer – before we bought the New Old Stone House – I started a series of blog posts about different rooms and the decorating decisions I had made for The Country House. I had some ‘before photos’ and lots of ‘afters’ to show you. It was my intention to post the photos once the Better Homes and Gardens Stylemaker issue came out on news stands. (In the end, my print story was only distributed by mail to their ‘Better Living’ audience. As far as I know, it never appeared online.) For as many photos as they took during the three day…

They were about a month behind on finishing the renovation work because of the whole trickle-in cabinet delivery/terrible paint debacle. I would have never left our renovation at such a pivotal time, but I had reached my renovation stress saturation point. (My skin has never looked so bad!) I put marks where I wanted the cabinet knobs to be placed and left the workers to follow my direction. They could handle this on their own, right? WRONG.Originally I had…

I physically feel unwell when I think about all the shenanigans we have been through since we bought this house. It gives me a complete migraine – and high blood pressure – and anxiety – all at once. I am convinced that our next house will be built ground-up. Surely that would be a more cut and dry scenario than what we’ve been dealing with here. I try to remind myself it is turning out beautifully and it will all feel better soon, but many days I…

    26 Aug 2015 | 5:32 pm
    I often talk about the 61 repeatable forms of gameplay in the market and I know I'm a bit behind on doing those posts. I don't normally stray off the path but I thought I'd cover a well known game called last man standing. The reason why I want to talk about this, is there seems to be continued misunderstanding about Amazon and what's likely to happen. Now there are two possible reasons - either I'm wrong or lots of other people are.Hence, I'll put my stall forward.Amazon is likely to be supply constrained when it comes to AWS and EC2. What I mean by this is that it takes time, money and…

    Back in 2007, I gave a keynote at OSCON on the future importance of open source and open standards to create competitive utility computing markets (i.e. the cloud). We had a chance for an early land grab to make that happen in what is called Infrastructure as a Service but we lost that battle to AWS (and to a lesser extent MSFT and Google). There are numerous reasons why, far too many to go through in this post.Just because the battle was lost, doesn't mean the war was. Yes, because of the punctuated equilibrium, we're likely to see a crunch in the 'private' cloud space and near dominance of…

    Katie Hutchison
    14 Aug 2015 | 2:26 pm
    While recently sorting through some background info for The New Small House book, I came across this photo I created of one of the featured projects. At the time, I pitched the photo to the book's editors and art department as an option for the book's end pages. This was quite early in the process when we were first thinking about how the book might look. We ended up going in another direction, but I still like this shot. Maybe it's better suited as a wrapping cover or end pages on a paperback novel. Any takers? What might the title of the novel be?by Katie Hutchison for House Enthusiast

    17 Aug 2015 | 2:55 pm
    Saturday marked the opening of the Venice Pop Up Park at 1021 ½ Abbot Kinney Blvd! On fun NOTlabs projects, Shawn and I had the pleasure of helping the latest 72U group (ad agency 72andSunny’s 12 week creative residency program) bring this park to life. An idea sparked at TedX Venice Beach was to turn a 1,500 sq ft dirt lot where a house once stood just off the uber-hip Abbot Kinney Blvd into a community co-working park of sorts where people can meet, collaborate, relax, have lunch, and more! 72U brought us in to lead their diverse group of 6 creatives (artists, engineers, architects,…

    The Leatherman Tread in real life! I’ve been far too curious and excited to check out this “wearable multitool” in person since it was announced - and it’s here! Leatherman just sent this over, and we’ve been test driving it the last few days. First impression? It feels great, and definitely attracts a lot of attention. As a hefty (somewhat heavy) stainless steel linked bracelet with up to 29 tools that you can get through airport security (or into Disneyland with - which inspired the Tread!) the more you wear it, the more useful you find it. So far i’ve…

    Designed by Doron Lachisch in 1998, DLP-Design’s Cubitec shelves are a favorite of homeowners for books, favorite objects, food and clothing storage, as well as retailers who use them to chicly display their wares around the world. The modular systems come in kits of 12 panels that can be arranged in many different ways (12 panels yields a grid of four boxes.) Composed of injected-molded non-toxic polypropylene, the shelves have a deceivingly light look that holds a lot of weight (up to 55 pounds per shelf). You can can make this versatile system into different compositions — a grid,…

    I have to admit it, while Design Public was quick to hop on Facebook, tweet tweet tweet and Pin away early on, we arrived really late to the Instagram party! But it’s probably a good thing, or else we never would have had any time to get any other work done.

    Are you afraid to commit to a wallpaper? This post is coming to you from someone who leaves wallpaper samples thumb-tacked to her walls for years without ever even calling that great wallpaper hanger a designer friend recommended, so trust me, I completely relate. That’s why Tempaper is so brilliant. Their selections are self-adhesive and totally temporary. So long as your walls are nice and smooth (they recommend that your surfaces that have been painted with a satin or semi-gloss finish paint, not flat for the best results), you can simply peel and stick this self-adhesive temporary…

    In this week’s UIE newsletter, I define a design-infused organization as one where every decision is made with design at the forefront. Here’s an excerpt from the article: It takes a long time to become a design-infused organization. Many have yet to make the transition. Some organizations are approaching it. These organizations value design enough to hire and embed designers in every project. They see how design is a competitive advantage. Getting a UX designer embedded on every team is a fantastic achievement for most organizations. It shows commitment to producing great experiences and…

    [ Transcript Available ] Understanding is what user experience as a field hinges upon. After all if you don’t understand how users are interacting with your product or service, you don’t know what to design for. But how, as a team, do you come to that understanding? Telling the story of a user’s journey highlights areas where you’re right on point and where you’re missing the mark. Kim Goodwin says that storytelling is the most natural form of human communication. She posits that if we’re trying to be as human as possible in the design process and come up with the most human…

    For the longest time I thought I had to make everything myself. If it was to be used in one of my designs, I had to have either made it myself or paid a decent amount of money for it. The icons had to be mine, the photos original, the typefaces rare (I was stupid, but not crazy enough to think I should also make my own typefaces). It wasn’t because I thought nothing was good enough for my projects, that my work was somehow too good for anyone else’s input to be included in any form. It was quite the opposite. I held such reverence for the work of others that I thought it foolish to use…

It no longer felt like a chore, it no longer felt like an impossible task, it no longer felt like something that I was faking. It was something I was desperate for. I’d been trying to write.

    I’ve always jumped into something too quickly or too slowly. I either start to act without thought, or think without acting. Mostly the latter. But no matter how I start, I’ve almost always skipped the in-between, fun, exciting and stress-free moment. That obsession moment. The one which first brings with it comfort, but then breeds fluency. One which sits between embarking upon an education, but stops before the learning really starts. It’s when the names are new, when ideas start to fall like bouncing and clanging marbles, not yet blocks that know their place. It’s when the fun…

It isn’t as natural as we hoped. It isn’t as easy as we thought it’d be. First We Second Guess We second guess ourselves. We lose our minds. We get distracted.

    Jon Burgerman’s ‘Jon’s Famous Friends‘ is one of those cheerful, funny yet meaningful projects that’s tough to resist.

  • Artist Uses Maps As Canvase For Striking Ink And Pencil Drawings

    Boogie nuggets
    28 Aug 2015 | 10:49 am
    In an unusual blend of cartography and illustration, UK artist Ed Fairburn practices map as his canvases for striking ink and pencil portraits. Faces scrapped by shapes that not only draw borders, roads, and geographical features but also bear a remarkable resemblance to veins and the texture of skin. Made up of amazingly complex details, the human forms that rise from dense lines are exceptionally realistic, even while being abstracted by the patterns of the maps. MORE PHOTOS

    Showing what you truly feel with hearts. Even the dullest places can look very exciting when you have the right amount of imagination and dedication to make and finish crafts. When decorating your home or room, it’s important that you’re not a slave to what can be seen with the naked eye. You see an empty room and you think that nothing else can improve it except for a carpentry renovation or buying something huge and expensive to cover up the “emptiness” More inspirations

    Gotta love when designers aim to make someone's life easier through good, well thought design. Sha Yao, a designer from California has thoughtfully designed a dining set for her grandmother who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. The results are pretty outstanding and should be an inspiration for all. Here's more about the project in Yao's own words: I was inspired by my late grandmother who had Alzheimer’s disease. As her caregiver, I know the role of caregiving is not a simple one. Once people get Alzheimer’s, they will need all kinds of assistance in their daily lives. As the disease…

    Vector graphics are handy resources that can save you lots of time when creating your designs, but I find it’s the items that you wouldn’t be able to produce yourself that are particularly important. Artistic styles like still life watercolour paintings or 19th century engraved illustrations take years to master, so without ready made design resources it just wouldn’t be feasible to use these effects in your work. Thankfully there’s a range of high quality digital products that allow you to inject the images you need directly into your designs like Neo learning Kung Fu…

    15 Jul 2015 | 7:59 am
    Back in the day, I used to assemble my wireframes and designs into a presentation deck, printed it all out, and then reviewed the work with my team/clients. Many designers still do this today, and it’s a bad habit developed in the agency world where everything is printed out and put up on a board for review. Some folks might not print everything out, but they’ll still view the static screens side-by-side on a computer screen. This might work for designs meant for print, but it’s a lousy way of reviewing product designs meant for devices. Here’s why. First, it’s important to view…

    Hello! I have updated this very popular post to include a free downloadable PDF of this checklist.  Preparation is key to successful management of any project, and design projects are no different. The more preparation that both client and designer do right at the start, the more smoothly the work will go. I find checklists can be very useful, so I’ve prepared a checklist of details that clients should provide their designer at the outset. To follow this list will ensure the client and designer are dealing professionally as well as creating an efficient workflow. A budget Knowing the…

    What should all businesses do at least once, and do properly, and (like the title of this blog post suggests) designers need to do repeatedly? The answer is: Understanding the target market they’re catering to. Sure, that makes sense—but why are graphic designers any different? Why do this repeatedly? When you’re in business, you’re in the business of understanding who your customers are, what they need and what they feel: how does your product or service make them feel? “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will…

You want to be open and forthcoming with information, but on the other hand you don’t want to overwhelm people, do you? Here’s a good way to work it out. Do both. Create something that is catchy and quick to read: something that anyone can absorb and understand readily.

The four word slogan in the poster artwork refers to current immigration debate and policy in Australia concerning asylum seekers. While this campaign is driven by activism, that’s not necessary for delivering a message with impact. The elements that…

Using the web to tell stories about helping people in need can be very effective for a non-profit organisation looking for new avenues to generate income and build support in other ways such as a volunteer base. Some large charities and non-profits have made good use of this opportunity with in-house teams who are savvy to the evolving nature of social media and content marketing. For smaller organisations it’s also possible to access the same expertise and create a web…

    Cat DiStasio

    The National Weather Service has reported that Tropical Storm Erika is “wobbling” its way toward the Bahamas. We know what you’re thinking: storms don’t wobble, so that can’t be good. And you’d be right. Forecasters are perplexed by the trajectory of this particular storm because she just isn’t behaving the way most tropical storms historically have in the that part of the world.

    Where did summer go? As the kids start heading back to school, everyone is feeling stressed and excited, so one of the most important things parents can do is to ensure they are getting a good night’s rest. One major thing that can prevent healthy, restorative sleep is a bad mattress. Nowadays, conventional mattresses are chock-full of harmful toxins that prevent us from sleeping well, not to mention make us sick. Did you know that most standard, non-organic mattresses contain threatening levels of synthetic flame retardants laced with VOCs (volatile organic compounds)? These toxic…

    The house in Bahía Azul is a stance towards designing on a slope. Or rather, it is the synthesis of such a stance, a pavilion that is slanted to take in the slope of the hillside where it is located, with the program developed on several semi-levels that are internally related – horizontally, of course – taking into account that the house has two opposing readings: the interior, where life happens in a more or less conventional space, in which the views are arranged by a series of openings on an external wall to the enclosure of the house. read more

We all want to spend more time in nature, and residents of houses with glass-walled interior courtyards experience a bit of the great outdoors from the comfort of their homes. In structures with courtyards nestled between separate wings, the courtyard is often the most direct (and refreshing) route from one part of the house to another.

Two months later the group stood on the roof of their new purchase as a hired tug pulled it from Saugerties, New York, down the Hudson to Rockaway Beach, Queens, where it's now permanently docked.

Tracing its path from the early 1990s through periods that include the Internet Bubble, New Economy, Web 2.0, Design Thinking, and Social Entrepreneurship we find three significant eras of Design Research. Each one reveals a change in attitude about the role that human conditions play in increasingly networked and global lifestyles and a restructuring of “experience” using new design methods. The cumulative effect and growth of deep design throughout these movements…

It stands out because it was the beginning of a personal odyssey that would take ten years, represent the steepest learning curve that I have ever climbed, and teach me—a designer—that design can kill your company. I spent my birthday at the largest annual gathering of sex product manufacturers in North America: The Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo. At first, I was bit taken aback by what I saw.

    Steve Selzer
    7 May 2015 | 10:25 am
    Practitioners of human-centered design focus on the importance of empathizing with others and removing our own bias when evaluating their needs. After all, we often find ourselves designing for people who are quite different from us, with different needs, desires, and underlying value systems. But here’s the rub: we’re human too. As human translators, it is impossible to be purely objective and unbiased for precisely the same reason we’re able to empathize with others: humans are emotional beings. We need emotion to uncover insights. But empathy has a few unfortunate characteristics as…

    The Office Stylist
    26 Aug 2015 | 1:10 pm
    Between smart phones and now smart watches, every thing in our life is leaning towards a digital only kind of life. While I LOVE and can’t live without technology, I still find that I can’t live without old faithful paper and pens. Especially when it comes to my to-do lists, ideas, notes and plans. There is something about writing things down that feels better than just typing them away into my phone. There is nothing like a great notebook and smooth writing pen to keep things together. It makes me feel old-fashioned even though I’m only in my twenties but allow me to…

I’ve had art framed before and by framed I mean I’ve gone to a store and bought a frame or where I purchased the art online framed the print for me.

  • The evolution of Major League Baseball logos

    David Airey
    26 Aug 2015 | 12:46 pm
    I’ve only ever watched one baseball game — sat in the bleachers at PNC Park to see a Pittsburgh no-hitter — so it’s fair to say it’s not my thing. Still, I found this GIF for the evolution of MLB logos interesting. A few inaccuracies were mentioned in the comment thread on Yahoo Sports, but on the whole it seems well pieced together. What stood out the most was the widespread use of mascots between the 1950s and 70s, tying in with the prevalence of mascots in a lot of product branding at the time. Those logos definitely had more character than many of today’s marks (no pun…

    Moccato is “a coffee club for hardcore coffee lovers.” The company sells tiny coffee pods filled with fresh coffee from local producers. The pods are compatible with Nespresso machines. The challenge for the designers at Plau in Rio de Janeiro was, “How do we convey apparently clashing concepts — natural yet instant, sustainable yet urban — and change the way people consume coffee through branding, packaging and e-commerce?” Their answer was a custom stencil wordmark (and typeface), a re-interpretation of something traditional within the coffee industry (as seen on the sacks and…

    At the conclusion of the Rolling Stones’ ZIP Code tour, Robert Klara from Adweek asked me how the famous “Tongue and Lips” emblem has become as iconic as it has, and why it’s lasted so long. Original design by John Pasche Any design that achieves iconic status can only do so on the back of an iconic product. The fact that the Rolling Stones are one of the most recognisable rock bands on the planet helps. Beyond that, if a good logo is going to endure it needs to be appropriate, and the sexiness associated with red lips is fitting for legends of rock ‘n’ roll. Read…

    We hesitate to use words such as charming or sweet here as they might imply excessive cuteness, but the recently completed tiny chapel on Cyprus does have a welcoming, approachable appearance that made us contemplate tiny, cozy spaces. However, we were also immediately aware that this is sanctuary, not some dwelling for friendly trolls. We were also drawn to reflect on visits to small Greek mountain villages where tiny white churches cling to seemingly inaccessible cliffs. And glancing inside and seeing the gorgeous hanging lighting fixtures, we remembered our visits to stalactite caves on…

At the same time, we were also reminded of how much we love Farca’s elegant work in general. To start with, the Barrancas House in Mexico City had a lot going for it before Farca came along. It is located on a sloped property so that the four levels of the house, from basement all the way to the top, or second, floor, are all in fact on ground level. In addition, the site overlooks a great wooded area with grown trees and greenery. The house had good bones…

    For more than a decade, shared offices have been an option for business in most larger cities around the world.

Some of them are not much more than bland office pens or chairs and desks for rent. Some are too casual and communal, or veering too far…

The cap labels provide a proof of seal and indicate the origin of the single brewed coffee. The brown bottle is a nod to the days of old – vessels for rejuvenating elixirs and home-brewed beer.

Utilizing minimal color Lee instead focuses on her shapeshifting creations, often incorporating human elements like eyes and mouths that sprout from the banded chaos.

As a Vols fan, one of my all-time favorite phrases is “It’s Football Time in Tennessee!” I know most of you aren’t Vols fan — don’t worry, I won’t hold it against you. One thing I think we can all agree on as football fans is the amazing spirit that comes with tailgate parties.

    Watching the SS16 collection YDE by Ole Yde inspires a certain mood. Yde’s shapes are feminine and elegant. The collection ranges from the more mature styles to the girly outfits. It also demonstrates variety from evening, to cocktail, to skirts and blouses for the stylish everyday. All definitely appealing to many and rather different women. Distinction, however, is to be found in the tones of colours selected by Ole Yde. Cream, blue, orange, and pastels constitute a symphony of with a particular style.Nuances enhancing the silhouettes designed to present a confident…

    Fonnesbech presented a SS16 collection with a clear reference to the Copenhagen interpretation of fashion at its best. Styles liberated from unnecessary frills and with a steady hand when unfolding Northern simplicity. The woman in vogue is approachable, and she prefers quality. The Fonnesbech quality is in the finish but also in the combinations of relaxed but still stylish; and urban but wearable. Also the volume and softness of the summer sweaters paved the way for high expectations to more fashionable knitwear from the Danish brand. We will be ready and waiting. The post The Fonnesbech`s…

    Street art should exclusively adorn streets, right? Well, not anymore if you ask the creative force behind the design firm called Substance. Thanks to their brilliant ideas, this type of “rebellious” visual art meets the concept of luxurious yet unpretentious interior in a French fine dining restaurant in Hong Kong. The restaurant is known as Bibo, and its walls are decorated with a number of works and installations signed by some of the most prominent names in contemporary and street art. The pieces by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Banksy, Mr Brainwash, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Yayoi Kusama,…

    Freya Dalsjø presented the delicate version of SS16 with her delightful collection in white, beige and pastels. The slender silhouettes invited elegant movements and stylish combinations. By taking its point of departure in the body, the Dalsjø collection was a welcome variation from many SS16 collections still sticking to straight lines and more rigid materials. Freya Dalsjø added a modern twist by long, prominent zips and transparent materials, but the main impression was that of being timeless. Also the detailed fur coat and the white leather coat seemed both trendy and classical. Freya…

  • The disturbingly dark paintings of Nicola Samorì

    Kelly Paik
    26 Aug 2015 | 11:20 am
    Italian artist Nicola Samorì’s Baroque-style paintings simultaneously evoke a sense of romance and violence. His Renaissance figures, first painted against classically dark backgrounds and bathed in chiaroscuro lighting, are then marred with smears of paint layered over their faces or with paint and material scratched away. In some cases, the paint is thinned so as to obscure the figure’s details behind a haze. In an interview for the Huffington Post, Samorì said of his art, “My work stems from fear: fear of the body, of death, of men. I think my nature as an artist is something like…

    Michael Vincent Manalo is a photographer and mixed-media artist from the Philippines currently based in Taiwan. His work is inspired by the imagined memories of nostalgic and dream-like environments and his works document their decline into post-apocalyptic and nightmarish creations. Having no formal training in photography, Manalo started his career at the age of 21 when he acquired his first DSLR camera and instantly fell in love. Now he seeks to create works of art that both surprise and delight. “Life has always been a fascination to me,” he said. “There were a lot of emotions –…

    Customers today buy designs and not really the products themselves. For instance, when you go to a shop to purchase a bottle of water. There are numerous brands available. However, you choose one brand over other. Why? While the water inside the bottles remain the same, the packaging, images, tagline etc. influences your purchase decision. The designer draws a connection through their design to influence customers purchasing behavior. It is the appearance, display and design that makes you reflect. Designers today are smart and possess great skills in capturing the moment and make you choose…

    What gives a design thinker a unique personality? Not a simple question, is it? His decisions and their outcomes truly dictate the success criteria.

  • 33 Illustrations that Beautifully Depict Solace: Design Thinking

    24 Aug 2015 | 8:54 am
    Illustration is creative expression, the art of telling a story without words. It is the silence which says it all, the proverbial picture worth a thousand words. It is science too, for it explains everything, and yet leaves room for subjective doubt, expression, and exploration. We, as humans, often have difficulty in truly explaining individual realities, problems, and experiences. These feelings can sometimes be of love, respect, and admiration, and of hate, anger, and sadness at others. All those emotions are integral to us, and we feel them deeply and completely ourselves. However, it is…

    It’s that time of year again. Summer is winding to a close and students and teachers are preparing to go back to school. But this year as school supplies are being bought and students of all ages contemplate what they will study, the world of the Internet of Things is making its way into the classroom. Smart, connected products are changing the way we live, work and play and as more and more manufacturers are building these products, the demand for IoT skills is growing. With a current shortage of IoT talent in the marketplace, it is important to build interest in IoT with students early.

    On a recent trip home from a business meeting in Washington DC, I experienced the (all-too-frequent) frustration of having my flight delayed. After boarding the flight and sitting at the gate for almost an hour, the pilot announced that we would be grounded for at least two more hours. It was discovered – while preparing for take-off – that a key part in the aircraft’s landing gear was malfunctioning and its replacement needed to be shipped in. As I sat at the gate with my fellow wayward passengers, I couldn’t help but think about how predictive maintenance could have played a key…

    Jessica Farris
    28 Aug 2015 | 11:59 am
    Before beginning a project, logo designers must consider their objective from a multifaceted perspective. Indeed, a creative logo design takes more than aesthetic appeal. A logo design isn’t for you—and it isn’t for your client either. It’s ultimately for the client’s target audience. So while your logo design should be an attractive mark, it should also attract the attention of the audience and function well in the overall identity design and any branding campaigns. It needs to be simple and recognizable enough that it becomes synonymous with the brand it…

Perhaps I’m revealing too much of the geek in me, but seeing those numbers next to my various skills tick up is just… moreish. Often I’ll find myself engaging in an utterly mundane task just to get better at it. In Skyrim I’ve been known to follow six inches behind an enemy for twenty minuets just to level up my stealth. Seriously – if there was an option to make spoons just so I…

America is made up of all types of women. Women who are hungry to see themselves represented in a beautiful way. And why shouldn’t they?” Although Fruth intends expanding this work to include more individuals, the series currently consists of fourteen women who vary in color, size, age and shape; each photographed similarly against a bed of lilacs.

The show, titled Becoming Aerosolar, uses sculptures, objects, and installations to look at environmental sustainability. The sculptures are composed of plastic bags that were re-purposed to create the skin of the form. The flotation of these pieces does not rely on the typical mechanisms of a hot air balloon. Instead, it uses sun’s energy and earth’s thermodynamics. In addition to crossing the boundaries of art and science, the work is…

    Laura Smith

    Merging modern and traditional sculpture, Julie Moon’s ceramic work is hard to classify. Simultaneously ornamental, biological and edible: does one refer to her pieces as figures, objects, or food? Contextualizing familiar forms amongst the unexpected and bizarre, like arms protruding from beehive-like mounds, Moon’s creations take on a language of their own. Her objects seem to allude to complex metaphors or narrations of personality and culture. A previous background in Toronto’s garment industry lends an element of decoration and impressive craftsmanship to Moon’s work. Source

There is one feature that is missing for me and that is because it only has a single Ethernet port available. With my current WiFi router, I’m using three of them. One to connect it to the network and two to connect our phone lines to Ringcentral. So if I decide to upgrade my current router and get the Google OnHub, I’ll need to also get an Ethernet switch so that I have enough ports available. A switch would also…
  • Quickly Tinting Seamless Textures To Match Color Scheme

    Foster D. Coburn III
    25 Aug 2015 | 8:00 am
    Recently I was making some changes to the CorelDRAW Unleashed and Vehicle Templates Unleashed sites and I wanted to integrate seamless textures into the headers and footers of those sites. I turned to our Textures Unleashed collections to find the perfect texture to use as a starting point. For both examples, I wanted to use a 512×512 pixel tile so that I’ll get more details. At the bottom of the examples below are the original texture and on top is the end result after applying the tinting I desired. For the marble-themed texture on the left, I first desaturated the original…
  • Link Doesn’t Work? Wait a Few Minutes and Try Again

    I hear from loyal readers on a regular basis telling me they’ve clicked on a link and it doesn’t work. It could be in a tweet, in an e-mail blast or something on the Web site. Some of them are truly broken and I need to fix them. If it is a link to another Web site, it could be the page has disappeared (and out of my control). There was a situation last week where one of our sites was dead for about an hour. In that case, nothing would have worked and we were able to get the site back up.

  • Have a Mac and Need to Run Windows Software? Get Parallels!

    22 Aug 2015 | 8:00 am
    The question comes often from users with a Mac. When will Corel release a version of CorelDRAW that runs natively on a Mac? I’ve said over and over that it isn’t likely to happen. The simple reason is that it would not be a profitable endeavor and Mac users can already run CorelDRAW if they use a Windows emulator. More details can be found in the following posts: Native Mac Version of CorelDRAW Coming? Don’t Expect It! Why You Shouldn’t Expect a Mac Version of CorelDRAW Could Apple Buy Adobe or Corel?

Right before teaming up with Decorist, I noticed I was obsessing over white and neutral spaces.  Pinning them like I was on fire. Maybe it was because I was also on color overload while redecorating the master bedroom in navy and pink? I don’t know, but flipped the switch, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.

    By now, we all agree that colors have an emotional impact on all of us. It is a direct personal relationship that occurs due to the vibrational energies given off by the wavelengths of each color available in nature. Colors nourish, soothe, energize; but they can also make us feel depressed, dull, and, sometimes even angry. When using colors for our clothes or even choosing ones for the interiors of our home, we gravitate towards colors that evoke a soothing or happy response in our mind. This is an essential part of color selection. But, did you know why we feel so? According to ancient…

The plans were, however, shelved due to lack of funds, leaving the university without any possibility to arrange public events for students or scientists. In the beginning of the new millennia, a private donation from the Erling-Persson Foundation made it possible to complete the compound with the venue it needed so long. An auditorium at a university goes beyond the task of a lecture hall, as it is not only a…

Living up to its name, the line incorporates recycled cork in the design. Head over to their Kickstarter page and back up the project in the next 31 days! It all started in my grandpa’s wine cellar—As kids, my sister and I used to play with the wine corks. Now that I’m older, I’ve established an appreciation for this often overlooked material. Cork is trusted to preserve some of the world’s finest wines. I thought, why isn’t it used elsewhere? – Corked team Image ©…
  • New whistle to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Alessi’s 9093 Kettle

    Design Chronicle
    22 Aug 2015 | 12:23 pm
    Alessi is soon to release a new version of the 9093 kettle whistle to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Designed initially in 1985 by renowned Michael Graves, the stainless steel kettle with red bird-shaped whistle has become an icon of the 20th century. After 30 years, Graves transformed the recognizable whistle into a special dragon and new colourful, metallic versions of the bird.  Sadly this marks the end of a legendary collaboration between Alessi and Michael Graves, as Graves passed away this year. The dragon seems to come as a fitting symbol to remember a great influential designer.

  • Alternative: Moss Graffiti & Could You Do It

    Rose
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:59 am
    By Rose Gardening can be without a doubt considered art. But there is one art that uses the basics of gardening. Moss graffiti. It very much resembles the usual graffiti painting but instead of spray and paint the artists use…moss. It is not a difficult concept either. Aside from being a talented painter you only need to know the simple recipe for the moss paint. In our era of information it is rather easy to find the ingredients for it, but I will make it easy for you: – 2 handfulls of moss, you collected from non-public areas (it’s really best to just buy it) –…

    It’s a Friday evening at 7:00 pm. My laptop is shut, and I’m done for the day. I’m ready to go out and have dinner with some friends and just one glass of totally-fine-for-my-waistline wine (or three, but who’s counting). And then it happens: the dreaded client email. “Hey, can you fix this one thing for me, really quickly?” Not, can you fix it on Monday—but can you fix it now. Like I’ve got nothing better to do than stare at my inbox for another three hours, patiently waiting to get a follow up about my edit. C’mon now! I want to be helpful.
  • How To Increase Your Willpower

    Ran Segall
    5 Aug 2015 | 8:50 am
    Albert Einstein famously said that genius is 1% talent and 99% hard work. That’s probably true, but I’ve noticed something else about hard work: first of all, it’s not easy to do. Secondly, most people try to avoid hard work at all cost, even the talented ones. The thing about doing difficult things is that you need a ton of willpower to do them. We all tell ourselves we should start eating healthy tomorrow, or work out, or build ourselves a new website, or learn that new software or understand what all those words on our 401k mean. But most of us don’t actually do all those things,…

    [This post was updated on July-29 after I got lots of feedback, with more tips. It’s now even more complete.] So you were asked to give a price quote for producing a new logo, ah? How hard can that be? you ask yourself. I’ll just look it up on the internet, you think. LOL. Asking Google something like “how to price a logo design?” is like dealing with my soap-opera-addict-93-years-old-grandma after I turned her TV off and take away the remote.

    Let’s be honest : being a freelance designer or web professional is a mixture of extreme highs and devastating lows. For all the freedom it offers — for all the great and varied projects you get to work on— we’ve all experienced empty calendars and periods of self doubt. I’ve had two large freelance spells in my career and for me it was all about finding the balance — the balance between filling the pipeline with new projects, whilst actually doing the work that had already been commissioned. It was a constant battle. Thankfully, after a while I started to receive referrals —…

Some clients… well it doesn’t matter how fair I am with them, or how much I do my best to make them happy – some clients can be **sholes! I know, I should be professional. I know, I shouldn’t take it personally. You might be thinking “what a whiner!”. But I bet it happened to you too. The truth is, I do take things personally from time to time. I do get hurt sometimes. And I’m not ashamed to admit it. The thing is, sometimes I’d like to think that I work like a great chef.

    When you think back on what life was like around the turn of the 20th century, do you picture them in black and white? It's hard not to when all we have to visualize that time in history is black-and-white photography. That's why artists have been restoring color to old photos for years, but photographer Jane Long had another idea. From her Facebook page: The Dancing with Costică series initially came about when I decided to brush up on my retouching skills.

  • Long Before Pantone, an Artist Created this Gorgeous 800-Page Color Book

    27 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    Ever stop to wonder how artists knew how to mix colors before Photoshop? Well, trial and error, mostly. Or if you became so proficient with a particular medium, you likely just "knew" what worked well and how to do it. But consistencies must have varied greatly, and even knowing if a particular color existed would've been just about impossible. Key word there is "Just." Back in 1692, an artist created a book that taught other artists how to mix watercolors. His name was "A. Boogert," and, by showing the recipes for how he got to certain hues and tones, he showed others what kinds of colors…
