    I was doing some research for a client and I came across Trey Ryder, a marketing advisor who specializes in marketing the services of lawyers. As you might expect, the articles on his website are addressed to his legal audience, but take a closer look and you'll find that much of his thoughtful advice applies to anyone marketing a product, service, or idea. There is, of course, plenty of generic marketing advice online, available for the taking. But I find Trey Ryder's advice is worth special note. It is comprehensive, detailed, and articulates some ideas I had not heard before. His website…

    I’ve been building WordPress themes for many years. The first free themes I released were tragically bad but they were something. A start. I never really knew what I was doing in the beginning. It didn’t matter though. I knew design and CSS, and that’s all I needed to know to design a grunge WordPress theme. I started building stuff for WordPress in approximately 2007. The themes I built were typically just ripped from Kubrick and restyled based on my preferred design patterns from that year. I was learning about WordPress, PHP, theme standards, design, functionality,…

    A leaky ceiling, in simplest terms, registers as an unusual way to celebrate an architectural landmark. But when each drop has been precisely orchestrated by Diller Scofidio + Renfro for a conceptual work titled 'Musings on a Glass Box', and when that glass box happens to be Jean Nouvel's iconic Fondation Cartier in Paris, the effect is a stirring performance of playfulness and respect. Twenty years have passed since the acclaimed French architect conceived a centre for contemporary art clad entirely in layers of glass, with vegetation providing lush density between the façade -…

For his latest project with Wallpaper*, he lingered behind the camera to shoot the former home and studio of Tom of Finland, the homoerotic artist who inspired a generation of contemporary pop artists - Pierson included. The homage to black leather and shiny pecs - incongruous against the sunny Echo Park, LA, backdrop - is the centrefold of our November 2014 issue.

  • A Close Look at CSS Box Shadow

    Jacob Gube
    17 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    The CSS box-shadow property can be used to give block elements a drop shadow or an inner shadow. Let’s take a close look at this CSS property. Examples Below are three different examples of applying the CSS box-shadow property on a div. Example 1: Simple Drop Shadow Here’s how you could give a div a subtle gray drop shadow. box-shadow: 0 0 10px gray; Example 2: Inner Shadow An inner shadow can be rendered using the inset property value. box-shadow: inset 0 0 10px; Example 3: Offset Drop Shadow In this example, the box shadow is cast with a bias towards the bottom-right side of the…

    Do you have your 2015 planner yet? No? May I suggest Midori’s MD 2015 Monthly Notebook? It’s a minimal planner that has plenty of blank space for your notes and sketches. Often planners get a little too crowded with text and someone else’s idea of organization, and that’s why the quiet pages of this planner seem especially welcoming. Memo pages are divided into eight sections so that you may use them as weekly pages or just for notes. That plus the monthly layouts and blank pages at the back allows room for you to organize dates and information the way you prefer. The…
  • Big Tournebrille Lamp

    The Serge Mouille Wall Sconce is well beyond most of our budgets, and that’s why seeing the price tag of the Tournebrille Lamp by Tse & Tse is a nice surprise. It’s a little less grande than the Mouille Sconce, yet that’s not a bad thing. Flying under the design radar occasionally might just make your home more interesting, and you’ll certainly have more money in the bank. A rotating shade and swing arm make the black matte Tournebrille an excellent, affordable choice for your preferred reading spot. The lamp attaches to the wall without the need for a box and…

    Baked, the bakery co-founded by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, represents everything that’s right about American baking (in my book), especially the baking that appeared in my childhood! Their latest cookbook, Baked Occasions, is a new collection of classic American recipes (with a twist), presented according by month to commemorate their chosen special occasions throughout the year.  In contrast with my usual credo of simple and seasonal, I chose one of the most labor intensive recipes from the book for today’s column, Baked Alaska Meringues.

  • DIY Project: Copper Snakes Pumpkin By Liz Libre

    I’ve been reading Halloween books to my four-year-old son before bed and all the same kinds of spooky things are mentioned: bats, mummies, skeletons, owls (are they really spooky?), witches. I realized I would use this project to paint something that really spooks me: snakes! Snakes totally freak me out, but if you forget the whole poisonous venom thing, the body of the snake and the patterns on their skin are actually quite beautiful. I really liked that contrast, so I decided I’d make a “spooky” but beautiful pumpkin. I hope this will inspire you to try some metallic…
  • Make Room For: Wednesday Addams

    Maxwell Tielman
    24 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    If the moody days of fall are well suited to any film character, it would most definitely be Wednesday Addams, the sharp-tounged, deliciously dark daughter from The Addams Family. Played to a T by Christina Ricci in the 1991 and 1993 film adaptations of Charles Addams’ classic comic strip, Wednesday is pretty much the patron saint of keepin’ it real—under any circumstances. Brutally honest, mildly sadistic, and wickedly funny, she is also gifted with an absolutely killer sense of style. Here, we pay tribute to this timeless femme fatale with a series of rooms and recipes…

  • Repurposed Macs, from Class to Crass

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:00 pm
    It is a shame that the Power Mac G5, and the first-generation Mac Pro, are these beautiful hunks of aluminum that have no present-day use. While the conscientious may deliver them to recycling facilities, wouldn't it be cool if the shells could be usefully repurposed? Germany-based designer Klaus Geiger thought so, and machined a solid piece of walnut to perfectly match the radii in the G5 tower's handles. Though Geiger's one-off bench was created for a freecycling event in Freiburg, he subsequently became intrigued by the idea of upcycling G5 shells, stating "they are simply too good to be…
  • In the Details: Making a 'Folding Sawhorse on Steroids'

    24 Oct 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Based in Tahoe City, California, Barclay Moore has been making custom furniture in his tiny one-car garage since 1986. Working in the small space, the furniture maker relied heavily on folding sawhorses for their ease of storage and light weight. One huge drawback, however, was their lack of strength and stability—over the years, Moore amassed a pile of broken plastic versions. Last summer, he finally got fed up and decided to invent a sawhorse of his own. "So the idea came in July, when all my plastic horses lay in ruins," Moore says. "I needed a set that was bomb-proof but that still…

    If you are any kind of fan of Bill Murray at all, then you will enjoy this interview he did with Howard Stern last week. Murray, who is famously hard to get a hold of, does not do a lot of interviews like this, so it was a rare treat. It's not a performance. This is just two guys talking, but there are some gems in there and even a few bits relevant for presenters and speakers of all types.

    Last night we were treated to a lunar eclipse here in Nara, Japan (and elsewhere in the world, assuming you had clear skies). As it's the harvest season here with very much a feeling of Autumn in the air, the majestic orange tint of the moon seen just above the trees lining our house seemed very fitting to the season. As you know, a lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth and into its shadow or umbra. The orange Moon or "blood Moon" is really something to behold. But why does the Moon turn red/orange? It's a simple phenomenon and it's explained clearly and visually…

    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. From The Moth website: "Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the…

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). His TEDxTokyo talk is his story and a moving call to action. Perhaps we throw around the word "inspiring" too much. But Hiro inspires me...and thousands of others. After…

Once launched in the Marketplace, it became a fun example of taking risks and being playful with a design that opens curiosity to consumers."The Nations aren’t afraid to be playful and bold, in both their brewing and…

  • Unlocking the Secret of Simplicity in WordPress Themes Everything I've learned in 7 years

    Chris Wallace
    9 Oct 2014 | 9:23 am
    I’ve been building WordPress themes for many years. The first free themes I released were tragically bad but they were something. A start. I never really knew what I was doing in the beginning. It didn’t matter though. I knew design and CSS, and that’s all I needed to know to design a grunge WordPress theme. I started building stuff for WordPress in approximately 2007. The themes I built were typically just ripped from Kubrick and restyled based on my preferred design patterns from that year. I was learning about WordPress, PHP, theme standards, design, functionality,…

  • Calculating the Profitability of WordPress Themes How to Decide if Selling Themes is Right for You

    Chris Wallace
    25 Jun 2014 | 12:18 pm
    This post is a response to Chris Lema’s post titled, “Four mistakes WordPress theme vendors make.” Chris makes some fantastic points about theme companies that I must reiterate here and also expound upon. As a leader of a company that sells themes, calculating the potential profitability of a single WordPress theme is absolutely critical to building a business around them. There are other factors, such as determining the size of a potential market for niche themes and understanding the needs of the consumer, but for now, I’d like to break down the expenses and…

    In a recent study titled, "Shared experiences are amplified", Erica J. Boothby, Margaret S. Clark, and John A. Bargh pose that the mere act of sharing an experience with someone else, amplifies the participants feelings about it. As they put it, "Every day, people spend time together in the absence of explicit communication. Lives unfold socially but often silently. Yet even in silence, people often share experiences, and the mental space inhabited together is a place where good experiences get better and bad experiences get worse." I'm fascinated by this type of research. I think as…

    I was doing some research for a client and I came across Trey Ryder, a marketing advisor who specializes in marketing the services of lawyers. As you might expect, the articles on his website are addressed to his legal audience, but take a closer look and you'll find that much of his thoughtful advice applies to anyone marketing a product, service, or idea. There is, of course, plenty of generic marketing advice online, available for the taking. But I find Trey Ryder's advice is worth special note. It is comprehensive, detailed, and articulates some ideas I had not heard before. His website…

    Wow, this is certainly the longest it has ever taken me to bring a vintage find back to life! Can you believe it was Autumn four years ago when I was searching eBay for lady liberty statues and somehow I clicked, clicked, clicked my way into a pair of Mid Century Modern Asymmetrical Club Chairs? They were definitely a good purchase with their Vladimir Kagan inspired lines – it just took a while for me to realize what they’d become.From the get go I knew that I wanted to do these chairs right, not just settle on a “good enough for now” fabric.

We asked the fence company to deliver a mock up portion of the Five Bar Crossbuck Fence to our property so we could see the scale and how it relates to our property. Last night we visited the house to take a look-see. (As I mentioned last week, we’ll be staining our fence nearly black.)Neither of us really understand how the creamy color siding on the extension relates to the stone…

  • Of Peace, War and Wonder vs Company Age.

    16 Oct 2014 | 7:10 am
    One of the more interesting discussions in recent times has been Prof Jill Lepore’s arguments against Clayton Christensen’s concept of disruptive innovation. In her now famous New Yorker article, Lepore argued that disruptive innovation doesn’t really explain change, but is instead mostly an artefact of history, a way of looking at the past and is unpredictable. This really is a non-argument because both Christensen and Lepore are correct. The problem stems from the issue that there are two forms of disruption - one of which is predictable and one which isn't.The two main forms of…

    When drawing maps, I often use different symbols to represent different aspects of competition. For example, since activities, practices, data and even knowledge evolve then I'll often mark these aspects on the map (see figure 1).Figure 1 - Activities, practices, data and knowledge.With most maps, I tend not to mark up the different component classes unless it is useful. When it is useful then in practice though I might add a legend to show the different class of components (activities to knowledge), I tend to not fully write out the process of evolution for each class on the evolution axis -…
  • Something that will change the world of competition ...

    4 Oct 2014 | 1:27 pm
    One of the most powerful force multipliers in competition is the use of an ecosystem model known as ILC built around a utility service. This model has been in operation for about a decade and can be shown to create network effects in terms of innovation, efficiency, customer service and stability of revenue. There's nothing quite like it but since it's old hat, I won't go through it again.However, the ILC model doesn't work quite so well in the product space (because the capture of consumption data requires expensive market research) nor in the physical commodity space (again there is no way…

    The Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu once stated, “Those who have knowledge don’t predict. Those who predict don’t have knowledge”. However, let us assume that there is future change that is known to everyone and change that is unknown to all (i.e. we’re forced to speculate and predict). Advantage can be created by a business through change that is known only to a few and “unevenly distributed”. This raises a question; can we determine a means of identifying future change that is knowable but not known to all? When examining literature, we can often cite examples of past science…

    When examining the issue of predictability, it becomes fairly obvious that there are two important axes to consider - the predictability of what and the predictability of when. By examining change on these axes (see figure 1) then one pattern becomes clear - there is more than one form of disruption.Figure  1 - Predictability of What vs WhenThe two main forms are disruption by Product to Product substitution (which is unknowable i.e. unpredictable) and disruption by Product to Utility substitution (which is knowable) :-The Unknowable (e.g. product to product substitution).

    Translucent plastic sheets (rather than polycarbonate panels) wrap this hoop houseTranslucent polycarbonate panels, like those you might find in a greenhouse, make an appearance in a few of the houses and retreats featured in my upcoming small-houses book.  It's an affordable material and often easy to work with since some incarnations can be cut with a knife. But mostly, it admits dreamy, diffuse light and partially obscures views to provide a hint of privacy and a touch of mystery. The opportunity to juxtapose translucency and transparency, as in the greenhouse photo above, allows for…
  • 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…

    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

    It is the acorn season, and being obsessed with cute little acorn caps, I’ve been collecting lots and lots of these lately.

    Building a compelling fantasy brand is all about the ancient art of great storytelling. Luxury brands need the illusion of fantasy to make us lust after them – at any price. It’s not so much about the product as it is about the idea associated with the product. If you have the time, or the intellectual patience, you can do some research by delving into the complex works of some of the prominent post-modern philosophers, But the lure inherent in all of this work is the yearning for a world of hyper-reality. An escape from the seemingly endless drone of our modern lives to a land of…

Of course he’s not incorrect in assuming that Apple is partly to blame for the shift towards a newer technology. But political office prevents him from pointing the finger at the real culprit of the demise – his country’s lack of innovation. It’s not so much that Apple purposefully targeted Finland in an evil plan to eliminate it from the global economy, as it is the fault…

Which is basically the perfect combo of surprise gifting… I believe the perfect gift to be things that the recipient wants (or will want) but wouldn’t buy themselves.

    Here’s the latest from NOTCOT’s London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw as she explores the 2014 London Design Festival. The 17th edition of Designersblock as part of this year’s London Design Festival at the The Old Sessions House, an 18th-century courthouse on Clerkenwell Green. The best use of the space was the Glowing Oak from Plumen found on the top of four flights of stairs! They transplanted a whole oak up there magically illuminated… breath taking! And on the way there, of course the courthouse was filled with quite the contrast of stunning,…

  • UIEtips: Hiring a UX Pro – 4 Techniques from Smart Teams

    Jared Spool
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:45 am
    In this week’s UIEtips, we reprint an article. In it, I share ideas on how to hire the best UX professional. I also make the case that hiring the right person is the most important factor to a UX team’s success. Here’s an excerpt from the article: Hiring is not a natural process. It needs to be designed, just like any experience. In our research, we learned that most teams amble into the hiring process by copying actions from others or by inventing wacky steps.

  • Aviva Rosenstein – Working with UX in an Agile Environment

    Sean Carmichael
    16 Oct 2014 | 11:46 am
    [ Transcript Available ] Integrating UX into an Agile workflow has historically been a bit of a challenge. This could be due to a general lack of communication with the development team, or not feeling like the proper time or value is given to UX within the organization. Through her research, Aviva Rosenstein discovered that many problems people were having are commonplace. Additionally, she found that others had actually already worked out solutions to some of these. In her virtual seminar, Making UX Work with Agile Scrum Teams, Aviva discusses the position of UX on Agile teams and some of…

    In this week’s UIEtips, we reprint an article. In it, Richard Rutter discusses the web and its role as a medium. Richard argues that we should consider the fact that a user can shape their experience as a strength rather than a weakness. Here’s an excerpt from the article: The wonderful thing about the web is that it takes many forms and those forms can be shaped by the reader to his or her benefit. That is a strength not a weakness; a feature not a bug. The control which print designers have – and so often desire when they transition to the web – is a limitation of the…

    Nathan Yau
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:15 am
    When news breaks, maps often accompany stories (or the maps are the story), and cartographers and graphics people have to work quickly. The New York Times does this really well. Cartographer Tim Wallace of the New York Times describes some of the process for Wired. I like the bit about uncertainty. They also have to deal with incorporating uncertainty into their maps. A recent map of territory held by ISIS in Iraq and Syria, for example, uses blurry red and yellow shading to indicate regions controlled by ISIS and areas of recurring attacks. The same map uses light grey hatching to indicate…

    George Murphy visualized the results of this year's skateboarding tournament Battle at the Berrics 7. Even if you don't like or know anything about skateboarding, this is a fun one to scroll through. Skaters match up head-to-head in a bracket format, and compete in a style similar to the basketball game of H-O-R-S-E. One person does a trick, and if completed cleanly, the other person has to match. If the second person fails to match, he or she receives a letter. The first person to S-K-A-T-E loses. Murphy takes you through the tournament with video clips and transitions through a handful of…

    So here's a sport I don't see or hear much about. F1 racing, which requires a different sort of strength and agility than say football or basketball, has a wide range of ages. Drivers can be in their teens. Some are in their late 40s (and successful). Peter Cook visualized the ages and races of drives through F1 racing history, since 1950. Each row represents a driver's career, and each color-coded dash in a row represents a race. Colors indicate wins, a trip to the podium, and a top 10 finish. My favorite part is the tour on initial load. The interactive points out highlights in the data,…

    For about a year we’ve been working on a wholesale re-positioning of Unicef in the UK. In research, they had discovered that whilst people recognise the charity, they’re not front of mind. There was an overall lack of familiarity with the brand, and many don’t even realise that it is a children’s charity. Unicef is actually the world’s largest children’s organisation and already ensures more of the world’s children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected than any other. They have done more to influence laws, policies and customs to help protect…

    There’s a very funny example of clever-clever marketing gone wrong at Regent’s Park tube station at the moment. The Lisson Gallery has decided to put simple text-only ads in the lifts featuring one simple question: ‘what are we thinking?’. Maybe they thought that this would spark a lively existential debate in the minds of visitors to the Frieze art show as they prepare themselves for the hurly-burly of contemporary conceptual art. Trouble is, the ads have been hacked, and any hopes for a high level of cultural discourse have been shattered. In response to ‘what are we…

    6 Oct 2014 | 2:49 am
    Looking at Hans Eijkelboom’s collection of gridded up look-alikes in ‘People of the Twenty-First Century’, one set of images is particularly striking. A group of twenty-something to middle aged men proudly display an odd-looking, bulbous illustration of lips and a tongue on their t-shirts. Had you just beamed down from another galaxy, you might be wondering why so many gentlemen were all advertising the same brand of lipstick, or ice-cream, or were making a less-than-subtle, come-hither sexual advance. It is, of course, almost impossible to decode the meaning of this infamous symbol in…

    This started with a simple observation. 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…

    The iPhone 6. This is the best iPhone that Apple has made, there’s no doubt in my mind. A new form-factor combined with a larger, more brilliant display, come together to create a product that feels truly extraordinary. I find myself constantly running my finger across the edge of the new curved display, trying to find the impossibly-small seam between glass and metal. Each iteration of the iPhone’s packaging continues to simplify, to the point where all we’re left with is a pure-white box with polished letters across the side: “iPhone” – no frills here. I…

The Verge has explained this repositioning quite clearly: The new app cuts through Foursquare’s massive corpus of data to answer one question: what if your food-finding app knew your favorite restaurants, but also your favorite foods?

    I still remember the very first time I held an Ikea catalog in my hands and flipped through its pages. It was 1999 and the cover was a well-lit living room with a mother and son lying comfortably on a beige couch. I browsed and found myself amazed by the room layouts and colors. I didn’t know then that the magazine was teaching me a few design basics that I eventually learned more thoroughly about. Here’s a few things you can pick up from that Ikea catalog you keep ignoring on the center table. 1) Working with colors Over the years, Ikea has evolved from the basic colors of the…

    The internet was set abuzz by Norway’s kroner redesign that were literally works of art which got us thinking: Why don’t we have those with the Dollar? The US Dollar is in dire need of a redesign, not only for rebranding but also for the possible restoration and strengthening of confidence on the US economy. Or, because designing currency is just plain fun. The aesthetics of American banknotes stems way back from when currency was first issued during the American Civil war. Symbolism was pretty much in the minds of the first US currency designers. For example, the color…

    Textures are valuable design resources that can be used as backgrounds to your work or pasted in as overlays to add distressed tones. Anyone with a camera can collect texture resources, with even the latest smart phone cameras being more than capable of capturing high resolution details. It takes more than just a click of the shutter button to capture a great texture though, the most usable textures are the result of some Photoshop editing.

    T-shirt company FCKH8′s F-Bombs for Feminism ad has been generating buzz and controversy in equal measure this week. On one hand they’re accused of being an exploitative, opportunistic start up which aims to build their brand by capitalising on legitimate equality issues, such as feminism, LGBT rights and racism. While others argue that regardless of FCK8′s motives, the fact remains the issues they raise are valid and the means are justified in highlighting the ongoing struggle for equality. So, a provocatively effective fight against inequality or cynical exploitation to…

    This is an excerpt on NOWNESS from the documentary, Il Capo (The Chief) by Italian filmmaker Yuri Ancarani. The film follows a marble quarry boss who uses simple hand gestures to guide his crew. The topic is fascinating, but what strikes me the most about the excerpt is the wonderful aesthetics created by mixing the beautiful landscape, excellent cinematography, and a super minimal sound design. All you hear are the sounds of the machinery and the massive marble blocks being extracted. It’s all wonderful and worth a look. Via Kottke

    Hartmut Esslinger is a German industrial designer who founded Frog, and is mostly known for creating the Snow White look for Apple during the 80s. I personally love the designs that he did for German audio and visual manufacturer Wega, which eventually became part of Sony. The aesthetic has a bit of the Braun/Rams feel to it, but it’s also very unique. More organic and fluid. But you can clearly see that Esslinger and Rams had the same approach to product design during those days. Seeing wonderful product design like this always makes me wonder why aren’t more designers/companies…

    A formerly garage space in Amsterdam’s area de Pijp, turned into a spacious house naturally lit by large roof lights. The interior with a generous 230m2 on one floor level is finished in a simple material palette. The repetition of rectangular rough oak wooden surfaces is in great contrast with the stark white walls, black surfaces and grey cast flooring. The custom designed kitchen includes a large wooden sliding door to cover integrated storage areas, with a contrasting black cooking island in front. Built-in cabinets and a fireplace have the same characteristics and contrast in…

    In the center of the vault-like room is a brass pendulum, which swings back and forth every second. This is meant to symbolize our fight against time, as the brass base would naturally oxidize over time yet the polishing brush at the bottom of the pendulum keeps that process from occurring. Nearby stands two connected saxophones, which emit a sound every 15 minutes like a classic horological sentinel. “This is our town church bell,” Trimarchi explains. A massive slate of round Carrera marble represents time as a circular motion. The handless clock is comprised of two concentric…

    The second OKKO hotel has taken up residence in the heart of Grenoble and its eco-district. With a terrace facing magnificent mountains, the challenge was to come up with a flattering echo for these beautiful rivals. A new range of warm colors is arranged in islands to give structure to the large volumes of the Club. Very contemporary evocations of nature were achieved with a choice of high performance materials and a collection of furniture pieces that hinge on the fundamental concepts of the OKKO ethos. Neither quite the same as the first OKKO nor quite different from it, this unique place…

    Caché is a lamp series of three pendants and a floor lamp. A sleek and contemporary design manufactured in a ultra-high quality craftsmanship with a lovely brass detail where all the parts are produced in Denmark. The pleated lampshade gives the lamp a special character and adds le Klint’s classical DNA which lies in the unique craft of pleating. Caché which in French means hidden is just the symbolism of the almost hidden hand folded lampshade, which is beautifully integrated in the lamp, and provides the unique character associated with a classical le Klint lamp.

    Scientists have uncovered what they believe is the oldest human DNA sample ever found, a discovery that could help unravel the mystery of how humans spread out over the planet. Phys.org reports that DNA came from a Homo Sapiens femur bone that was found accidentally on the bank of a west Siberian River in 2008; it is believed to have belonged to a man who died about 45,000 years ago. The DNA found in that bone holds traces of Neanderthals, a cousin of early humans who lived nearby in Eurasia before suddenly disappearing.

  • Falling Leaves: Justine's Spooky-Elegant DIY Table Setting

    Justine Hand
    24 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    Good Halloween decor should always evoke a ghost story. Mine captures a ladies' luncheon gone on waaaay too long.  Every October my husband and children run around bedecking the exterior of our house with ghouls and pumpkins. But the interior is my domain. I like to honor All Hallows' Eve with a more subtle, grown-up approach—something that is only vaguely sinister or decayed. Last year I paid homage to Miss Havisham in my hall. (See Justine's Haunted Hall.) This year I wanted to serve up a spectral supper in the dining room. Using little more than floating black leaves and bone white…
  • Dastardly by Design: Modern-Day Alchemist Jane Hallworth in LA

    Sarah Lonsdale
    24 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    British-born, LA-based designer Jane Hallworth is fabulously droll and witty, rigorously versed in the world of architecture and design, and completely tight-lipped when it comes to talking about her well-heeled Hollywood clients (rumor has it that Ellen Degeneres and Kristen Dunst are on her roster.) If only my father had known of her future success, he may not have worried so much. You see, in one of those small-world coincidences, Jane (who I recently met for the first time through work) was an architecture student of my father's when she was at Newcastle University. My father was a…

  • When Objects Talk Back

    Azure Yang and Simone Rebaudengo
    15 Oct 2014 | 7:00 pm
    The Control Dilemma We expect a lot from something that is labeled as smart. But as smart as a product could be, data analysis and sensing is not enough to design a fully trustworthy experience. By relying on a product’s smartness, we tend to hide complexity. And by focusing on connectedness we outsource all controls to remote applications. Soon we might find ourselves with objects around our homes that prevent us from making choices, that might awkwardly deny any manual control and behave in a way that is not really understandable to us. At this point, who is actually in control?

    Sometimes I envision this scenario: a meeting room at Google a few years back and someone raising their hand during a brainstorming session to say “I think we should take photographs of every street in the world.”  I can imagine the initial reactions of others in the room, particularly smart, rational, MBA-trained strategists who would instantly see the problems with this idea.  How on earth does that fit with search?  We would need a fleet of cars with cameras and a large labor force to drive them!  How would this create value anyway?  Won’t the…

    Your shower is, at the most basic level, a simply practical item. It is there to quickly and conveniently get you clean, with the minimum of fuss and water wastage. The thing is, if you are anything like me, then you will want to make anything in your home – functional or not – look as good as possible, in order to reflect your own personal design ethos. One thing I did recently was to give my bathroom a going over, and as part of that I revamped my shower to make it look far more clean and modern. Here are three things I did to help achieve that.

So I imagine, that the site will be still there when you read this post. Second, they have a social stream and photos to give you beyond the music a way to experience it.

    Great move from Coldplay – stream their concert live. You might say, that’s not news, but they do a couple of things right. http://www.coldplayaustralia.com.au/#/social-feed First, they use a dedicated site they own, instead of one of the big companies. So I imagine, that the site will be still there when you read this post. Second, they have a social stream and photos to give you beyond the music a way to experience it. In my opinion in a better way than even video would do.

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:30 am
    This month’s episode of Design Matters is with Tom Geismar. “All a logo does is represent whatever the entity is, and peoples’ feelings about it are completely determined by their experiences with that entity. One test we often do is to say, ‘Who do you think has a good logo?’ And inevitably people say Apple and Nike and ones they think highly of. No one will ever say Enron. Paul Rand designed Enron’s logo and it really was very good but no one would ever say that because their feelings are too much affected by the history. So it’s not the logos’ design, it…

    I just read an article that isn’t related specifically to logos, but it’s one of the better collections of words in favour of saying no when for-profit companies ask for free work. “This isn’t just about unpaid labor. One reason people, especially young people with creative aspirations, work for free is to form valuable relationships that will push their careers forward. But you can’t form a valuable relationship with a rich person who can afford to but won’t pay you a reasonable wage, because your entire relationship with that rich person is based on their failure to…

  • Artist And Sculptor, Benedetta Mori Ubaldini

    20 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Our most recent artistic pick is Milan-based, London-educated artist and sculptor, Benedetta Mori Ubaldini. There is something strangely intriguing and mesmerizing about her chicken-wire sculptures. Trying to put our finger on it, we came up with more than a few explanations why we love these so much. One appealing aspect is that they look somehow unfinished and raw. The wire frame is usually the part of a sculpture we do not see. It is not the final product. And yet, these airy and lightweight pieces seem to lack nothing at all. They are very much finished and completed. And the lightness…

    Children deserve much more attention in urban planning than what they are getting currently. As small children and toddlers are not likely to raise their voices to demand the attention, it is up to us adults to do something about it. We need to support, demand and finance more initiatives that help children – and their parents – enjoy the outdoors, even in urban settings. French urban planning and architecture firm Espace Libre, has created a delightful multi-functional play area for toddlers in the commune of Alfortville, located 7.6 kilometres (4.7 miles) from the centre of…

Luckily, we can use many more, and timeless is a third word that comes to mind immediately. Architects Geert Bosch and Annemariken Hilberlink of Berlicum, Netherlands-based HILBERINKBOSCH architects designed this timeless gem for a couple whose children have already left the house. The villa is located in Utrechtse Heuvelrug, a municipality in the Dutch province of Utrecht. The key to the harmonious elegance of the house is the way it sits on its site.

Creatives at Miami Ad School San Francisco have taken the “It Starts with Sharpie” tag line into the past to explore the creative thinking behind three well known logos for Apple, Playboy and The Rolling Stones. Rob Janoff was working for Regis McKenna as an art director in 1977 when he was commissioned to design the Apple logo. John Pasche, who designed the Tongue and Lip Design logo in 1971, began his work while a student at Royal College of Art.

    17 Oct 2014 | 6:36 pm
    By now, I'm sure, we've all moved on to building our new sites with Bootstrap 3 even though Joomla! 3.x still has not :(. This isn't normally a huge deal since we can use template overrides to set the styles we need—views in the Users component, however, make it a bit difficult to get Bootstrap 3-specific styles in the various forms. Imagine your disappointment (rage?) when you finish building your beautiful Bootstrap 3 template, then navigate to your registration page and it looks like this: Here's a snippet from the com_users' registration view. <?php foreach ($fields as $field)…
  • How to build a Joomla! plugin to pull Open Graph data from an external page

    19 Sep 2014 | 11:08 pm
    Recently we had a client that wanted to share articles that they had found around the 'Net on their site. Now, normally we'd just set up some Weblinks categories and send them on their way—but they needed more. For starters, they wanted to include an image from the article as well as a description. We suggested using the Open Graph metadata that most sites use so their content shows up nicely on Facebook. How do we pull in the Open Graph metadata? With a hat tip from Tom at StackOverflow.com, we can use this little bit of code using DOMXPath: <?php $data =…
  • Using the Joomla! 3.3 API to add articles programmatically

    20 Aug 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Ever wanted to add articles to your Joomla! site from another source? If you've ever tried, you've probably run into a few issues—for example, articles that have been created directly in the database will not get indexed by the Smart Search component. The main reason problems arise when adding articles directly to the database is the implementation of the assets table (used in Joomla! sites since 1.6). The assets table keeps a row for content items as it relates to Joomla!'s ACL system. For simplicity's sake, just know that Joomla! relies a lot on the assets table and we'll need to make…

  • Swift: From an Android Developer's perspective

    15 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    At Zuno, I'm the resident Android developer, but being close to the only one in the office that doesn't use an iOS device daily made me wonder what the other side was like. So, I decided to play with Apple's new programming language, Swift. (note: since Swift is a new and developing language, I can't guarantee what I write will be accurate when it's production ready) OS X and iOS apps are primarily written in Objective-C and that's because of the operating system's heritage with NextStep. This is why all the core classes start with NS. Now, Objective-C does solve problems. Back when it was…

Ama—a poetically beautiful art piece comprised of opaline spheres, and arranged in a circle uncannily resembling a giant string of pearls—was conceived by the designer as an homage to the Ama women of Japan, who, in a tradition dating back 2,000 years, plumbed the ocean’s depths in search of watery treasures, including pearls.

BABEL consisted of tables of all sizes, which were constantly arranged and composed differently throughout the exhibition to emphasize the impermanent nature of transformation. Knowing that the function of a table is directly related to size, BABEL is an exploration of utility of the tables. On their own, the small tables act as stools or decoration, and the bigger ones act as…

    Essential tips to maximizing storage in a very small kitchen. - Base units play a particularly important part in organizing storage space. - Additional space by installing a peninsula on end one of the kitchen counter or below the built-in kitchen island. - Cabinets to the ceiling allow for more storage - Create an inventory of items and plan storage and function-space for everything in the kitchen. - Pull-through slides are ideal for islands because they allow drawers to be opened from either side. Some specialty slides allow drawers to extend beyond a full extension.

I have toooo much stuff that I don’t organize properly so I end up never finding things when I need them and then end never hardly using them. I often fantasize about a clutter-free, super-organized, everything-is-where-it-should-be living space but, truth be told, I wish someone else would do it for me.   Inspired by strategies to de-clutter over on AT, I hope to change this as I move into my…

    In the latest episode of Between Two Ferns on Funny or Die, Brad Pitt was asked a series of insulting questions by host Zach Galifianakis.

    When car companies advertise their latest models, the cost of ownership is an important factor that is highlighted. Accurate data analysis makes it possible to predict the annual expenses for driving a certain vehicle in particular conditions. Automobile companies analyze data from official government agencies that regulate road safety and environmental pollution. Additionally, external sources such as insurance companies are also used to generate graphs for the cost of ownership of specific cars. Automakers often boast about excellent fuel economy in select models such as compact cars or…

    “That’s just so Russian” is not something I find myself using casually in conversation (for obvious reasons). Yet, when I came across the artwork of Masha Shishova, that’s the first thing that came to mind. I have no doubt that a person with any knowledge of Russia would mistake Masha’s work for anything but Russian. 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…

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.

    Foundation recently turned three years old. It is hard to believe how much it's changed especially considering it was the first responsive design framework first built in Sass and modular mixin partials, and the first to take a mobile-first approach. The code has changed a ton, but one thing hasn't changed throughout this time. The level of dedication and passion the people who use Foundation has constantly impressed us. Some of the biggest improvements to the framework since we launched Foundation 5, now known as Foundation for Sites, have come from our community. Despite having over 7,790…

    Design is hot. Design executives are being tasked with being design-driven, but don't have the tools or processes to sustain this effort. They embrace design thinking, but it's unclear how their companies will embrace its ideas. VC's are telling founders to hire a design leader, but it's not clear who this mythical, unicorn person is who will drive the design approach across the company. It's entirely possible to grow this person in an organization, but not likely to be someone who comes in with magical fairy dust to make everything Apple-esque.

    Cyndi Lauper was wrong when she said money changes everything. Well, wrong when it comes to designers. Of course, she probably wasn't talking about designers, but that's another story. When we surveyed designers on the reason they'd leave a job, we expected that money would be the number one answer. It wasn't. Designers said they'd bolt if there was no advancement. But what the heck did they mean by advancement? We did a follow up survey of 100 designers. Once again money took a backseat. The top answer was new skills training. Money came in number two, followed by more responsibilities.

    Everybody has worn a lanyard at least once in their lives.

    Tant de Forets is an animated short by french illustrators and animators, Burcu Sakur and Geoffrey Godet that was released on French TV earlier this year. According the the animators, the piece is based on a poem by Jacques Prévert by the same name that “speaks of the irony of the fact that newspapers warn us about deforestation although they are made of paper themselves.” The film’s illustrative style seen in the two trailers here is unlike anything I’ve seen before, with beautiful use of color, depth, and geometry that’s somewhat reminiscent of Charley Harper…

    Located in a park near the center of Lede, Belgium, the Castle of Mesen dates back to the 17th century where it served as a home for various lords before a conversion to an industrial site. Throughout the 1800s the complex was used as a gin distillery, a tobacco factory, and a sugar refinery. In 1897 the castle was then sold to a religious order who constructed an impressive neo-gothic chapel and turned the entire facility into a boarding school. Although it was still in use up until the 1960s, a tragic storm of abandonment, looting, and a failed attempt to designate the castle as a monument…

    Have you ever heard of the UK heavy metal trio called Throne? We hadn’t, but we will now forever remember them for something truly epic. For their latest song “Tharsis Sleeps,” they came up with an idea for the music video that will shock even hardcore fans: the first-ever, frame-by-frame, fully-embroidered music video. The band’s singer, Nicos Livesey, an animator himself, had a two-fold inspiration for this video. Seeing an embroidery machine in action at a boat show at the age of 12 left him fascinated with the process of embroidery ever since. More than that, like many…

He came back and gave one of his most explosive shows to date. But then, after the third show went off without a hitch, things took a turn for the worst when in Brazil his drummer Glen Sobel’s vest was stolen, right after the band had completed a sound check. “But it’s just a vest—why can’t he simply buy another one?

    The MuttKnee Brace got started by Daryllanne Franks about twelve years ago, out of necessity to help her dog Muttley, who had injured her knee running around on the snow and ice. As a result of this injury, Muttley could barely walk, and the cost of the surgery suggested by the vet was beyond Daryllanne’s budget. Knowing she had to help her poor dog any way she could, she and her husband decided to design their own brace for Muttley, basing the design on supportive braces for human knees. After a couple of months of wearing the brace, Muttley was able to support her weight once again…

The last few were pretty average design wise, certainly nothing to shout about, but the first one or two I did, oh man… they were shit.

At the time I was living in Manchester city centre and had a rather nice apartment, I miss that apartment, it had a balcony and everything. However working from there was anything but ideal. In the beginning I thought it was fantastic, I had a commute that was all of three seconds and I didn’t even have to get dressed. Surely, I thought, productivity will be insane. Turns out that was truer than I knew. You see, I’ve said before that I love what I do, and that’s true, but…

This is not your typical whipped cream fantasy… the chocolate icing is spread on the model like a cake and many of the foods are applied in excess suggesting this is more about mockery than sensuality. The images ask the question: How decedent can we get before this becomes progressively less attractive? We all know the candied cherry as a classic sex icon, or some slowly dripping fudge topping as oddly sensual, but a pile of powdered sugar? or Cheetos stuck to…
