    8 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    I stumbled over a great Q&A over at Quora. Someone asked about what to do with their great ideas and inventions so that they won’t get cheated. I’ve decided to reproduce the question here and the answer by Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, as I often get asked the same question but in many different ways. The question: If I invent something which has a chance of earning billions if brought to market, what should I do to prevent others from cheating me out of what I deserve? History is full of people who killed themselves after inventing something legen-wait for it-dary…

    Mainstream blogging platforms like WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, etc. aren’t designed for hackers. They’re encumbered by features developers just don’t need or want. And, out of the box, the popular blogging platforms certainly lack a lot things coders actually would want, such as code syntax highlighting, blog theming capabilities using a standardized templating engine, markup language support besides HTML, and integration with source code repositories, among other things. If you’re looking for a blogging solution that’s programmer-friendly, you’ve come to…

    What you see is what you get. Can it be that we’re all so shallow as to subscribe to this statement? The science seems to back it: new research has found that first impressions remain incredibly hard to dislodge. On the other hand, according to Vivian Zayas, a psychologist at Cornell University, “the present research shows that such judgments about the cover are good proxies for judgments about the book – even after reading it”. It seems that there is a good reason why we’re so quick to judge – it’s usually spot-on! This is a crucial factor for marketers, especially those in…

    A long time ago I was a revolutionary at Apple. My job title was “software evangelist.” My responsibility was to evangelize Macintosh to software developers. Later my title was “chief evangelist,” and my responsibility was to evangelize Macintosh to anyone who wanted to increase productivity and creativity. Post Apple, I’ve been many things: author, speaker, entrepreneur, venture capitalist, advisor, and father, but I’ve never used the title “chief evangelist” until today. This is because the title only works if your product can change the world—or at least a significant…

    Second only to crawling, flying, and flesh-eating beasties, putting the tent together is probably the most annoying part of camping. Tent manufacturer Brooks-Range Mountaineering has introduced a tent line called Tension. The tents are, appropriately enough, held up using tension created by an internal cord system and just a couple of poles. The poles are, of course, the most vexing part of putting together a traditional tent.

For this incredible house in Joshua Tree, California, the choice was the latter. The home was conceived and built by architect Ken Kellogg. Construction began in 1988 and did not finish until 1993 – a testament to the thought and care put into the structure’s shape, materials, and impact on the surrounding environment.

    Chopping wood is great exercise, but it’s also difficult and incredibly tiring. Luckily, most of us can pick up a bundle of firewood at the supermarket or convenience store. Still, humankind has been waiting centuries for someone to improve on the regular wood-chopping axe, and now Heikki Kärnä, a Finnish inventor, has done just that with the Vipukirves. Vipukirves translates to “lever axe,” which gives a good idea of what this ingenious tool does.

    With more and more technology companies adopting remote working environments, having team members in different parts of the world is not uncommon any more. Remote working comes with many benefits, but also unique challenges. The biggest perk of working remotely is you are able to give all members the option to live and work where they are most productive. It’s often easier to stay focused without the day-to-day distractions of commuting to work and normal office interruptions. But as we mentioned, many challenges persist. Communication can be difficult. Team-building can be very tough.
  • Wireframes vs. Prototypes: What’s the Difference?

    Jacob Gube
    11 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    A wireframe is not the same as a prototype but even seasoned design professionals can sometimes get the two terms mixed up.

  • 5 CSS Effects Libraries for Supercharging Your Designs

    Jacob Gube

    CSS3 gives designers many new properties and modules (like the CSS Animations and CSS Transitions modules) that allow them to add fascinating interactivity onto their work. If you want to take advantage of these modern CSS capabilities, one quick way to do that would be to use (or study) CSS effects libraries. Let me talk about a few open source collections of CSS that will help you craft great transitional interfaces. 1.

    Mainstream blogging platforms like WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, etc. aren’t designed for hackers. They’re encumbered by features developers just don’t need or want. And, out of the box, the popular blogging platforms certainly lack a lot things coders actually would want, such as code syntax highlighting, blog theming capabilities using a standardized templating engine, markup language support besides HTML, and integration with source code repositories, among other things. If you’re looking for a blogging solution that’s programmer-friendly, you’ve come to…

Don’t rule out this version designed by Chris Specce, as it takes the quintessential form and eliminates any overly ornate details for a clean and modern look. It’s sturdy, so it’ll stand up to the bumps and scrapes of a high traffic dining room, and the bolder color options further set it apart from its stuffier predecessor.

    The Kingstown Barstools from Studio Dunn are just as sleek as they were when they first hit the market a few years ago. Similar to Studio Dunn’s popular Conventry Stool, the barstools combine traditional handmade joinery with contemporary manufacturing methods to create a seating option with incredibly graceful lines.

Designed by Nick Behr and Sarah Burrows, the reclaimed wood box hides the mechanism that allows for different watering settings based on plant type to ensure proper nutrient intake, allowing you to grow your plants without your kitchen looking like a science laboratory- not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. Other finishes available directly from Modern Sprout, plus a solar powered option ($219.00). Designed…

    In college I proudly worked as one of the most successful shoe salespeople at Williamsburg, Virginia’s only Birkenstock store. I worked there mainly because I wanted a discount on shoes (I was a pretty devoted hippie), but also because I liked that our boss referred to me as a terrier.

    A presentation is a moment in time. I have long referenced jazz and my own experience with jazz as having a great parallel to the act of a live talk or a presentation on the center stage. One thing that a live talk and a musical performance have in common—especially improvisational music—is that neither event is ever the same twice. They may be similar, they may cover similar ground, but they are never exactly the same. The message—the real meaning—is in the moment, in that interaction between audience and performer (or presenter). In this interview with London Real, famed…

  • Bouncing Graphic Replays Human Heartbeat Dynamics of Yesterday

    27 Mar 2014 | 12:51 pm
    One Human Heartbeat [onehumanheartbeat.com] by data scientist and communicator Jen Lowe displays the dynamics of Jen's heartbeat from about one day ago. The data is captured by a Basis B1 band, which is able to detect one's heart rate by measuring the pulse and blood flow, and then records the average heart rate for each minute. As the data currently can only be accessed via a USB connection, the data shown on the webpage is from exactly 24 hours ago. Next to the obvious, bright red spiral of life/death in the middle of the screen, a small, numerical countdown counter reveals how many heart…
  • Browser Plugin Maps Your Browser History as a Favicon Tapestry

    24 Mar 2014 | 12:27 pm
    Iconic History [shan-huang.com] by Carnegie Mellon University interaction design student Shan Huang is as simple as it is beautifully revealing. The Chrome browser plugin resulted as an accidental discovery while developing a quite sophisticated 3D webpage bookshelf for a particular course work assignment. It fetches the according favicon for each URL that was visited, and compiles all icons into a huge tapestry, in a sequence that is identical to the historical access order. As each icon is still linked to the original URL, one is able to return to the original website. Via FastCoDesign.
  • LEGO Calendar: a Tangible Wall-Mounted Planner that Can be Digitized

    19 Mar 2014 | 1:13 pm
    The LEGO Calendar [vitaminsdesign.com], developed by design and invention studio Vitamins, is a wall-mounted time planner that simply can be photographed to create an online, digital counterpart. The calendar is big, visible, tactile and flexible, as it makes the most of the tangibility of physical objects, and the ubiquity of digital platforms. It also looks neat and tidy, while keeping a certain degree of anonimity, not revealing client names or project information by casual passers-by. See also: . 3D Infographic Maps Built with Lego .

  • HubCab: Mapping All Taxi Trips in New York during 2011

    18 Mar 2014 | 1:19 pm
    The densely populated yet beautiful HubCab [hubcab.org] by MIT Senseable Lab is an interactive map that captures the more than 170 million unique taxi trips that were made by around 13,500 taxi cabs within the City of New York in 2011. The map shows exactly how - and when - taxis picked up or dropped off individuals, hereby highlighting particular zones of condensed pickup and drop-off activities during specific times of day. The map lead to the development of the concept of "shareability networks", which allows for the efficient modeling and optimization of the trip-sharing opportunities.

  • Introducing the Worldview Theme: Beautiful Storytelling

    Chris Wallace
    7 Apr 2014 | 12:52 pm
    We’ve been hard at work on a new theme at UpThemes called Worldview. This theme is the result of months of hard work, tweaking and refining the design to pixel perfection. My goals for the Worldview theme were simple: 1. Make it easy to publish beautiful content. With Worldview, our main priority was to offer a theme that can truly stand out as a work of art without being packed with gaudy options and a bloated codebase. The beautiful typography and photography elements offer a sophisticated appearance that can enhance the impact of your posts and stories. 2. Make it easy to browse…

    So apparently my former hosting company decided to delete my hosting account without telling me. Fortunately, I had already migrated our important sites to a new host, but I did lose all the content from my personal site. I was sort of planning to refresh my blog anyway, so it appears to be serendipitous. Make sure to keep an eye on my blog, as I will be posting all sorts of nuggety tidbits of knowledge on running a design/dev shop, home automation, McKinney, Texas, the St. Louis Cardinals, and much more.

  • Is brainstorming a waste of creative energy?

    chuck
    21 Apr 2014 | 6:02 pm
    Broadly speaking, I believe, yes. Certainly, there are certain situations in which, I am sure, brainstorming has produced a product that was superior to that the individuals were able to produce on their own. But, to me, it has always been a rather tortuous process. My mind works by associating one thought with the next and brainstorming does nothing more than form a roadblock to my moving to the next logical conclusion. No, not because my idea is always the best idea, but because I don't think like a group—I think as an individual. In any case, another piece of research is just now…

    He is best known for his iconic Rolling Stone nameplate but that, as far as I am concerned, is a mere footnote to his real contribution—typefaces including Modesto, Roswell, Poster Black, and so many others. He's the real deal, a hand lettering artist whose work has the added dimension that comes with knowledge of the physical craft of typography—the composition of characters with pencils, pens, and ink.

    A few weeks ago the Mr traveled to London for work. To keep me company during a long week with my husband away, our friend’s invited Tauren Poodle and I to their house for dinner. I suggested that I bring homemade cookies for dessert. I whipped up the Nestle’s Toll House Cookie Recipe, only I baked them in bar form.When I was through, I felt like I was still in cookie baking mode so I decided to try out a new to me recipe from the Tassajara Bread Book.

    I was half way through writing my post about garden planters and outdoor furniture on Monday when I had the overwhelming desire for pancakes. Whole wheat pancakes – to be exact. My brain kept repeating the same mantra: pancakes, pancakes, pancakes, P-A-N-C-A-K-E-S-!- So eventually I gave in, stopped what I was doing and resolved to finishing my post on Tuesday. I hurried into the kitchen and got out the measuring cups, a few bowls and the whole wheat flour. It was the second time in a week that a recipe I was making called for Buttermilk. I never have it in the fridge, ever. Heck,…

    The calendar officially says it is Spring. The weather however – well, that is another story. Last year at this time we had 10 inches of fresh white snow on the ground, we had just wrapped up the New England Home photo shoot at our house, and I was busy scheming my outdoor furniture plans on the blog. Looking back at my posts, I can hardly believe how much warmer it was last year at this time. The late Winter snow melted off so quickly that my daffodils were popping through the dirt and blooming in early April! Right now I’m staring at 18″ of old frozen snow on the ground.

    Things appear and diffuse in society through diffusion curves of ever maturing versions of the act. Product A1 leads to a better Product A2 and so on, until it finally becomes more of a commodity (or utility if suitable). These diffusion curves follow a s-curve shape and have an exponential component.However, many of the curves (A1 to A5) tend to be related to products leading us to a misperception that since the time for products is long then the time to convert to utility will be equally long. This creates a period of overlapping conflict between the product view of the world and the…

I was late to learn of Royal Barry Wills, a New England architect who launched his practice in 1925 and went on to win the National Gold Medal for a small-house design in Herbert Hoover's 1932 National Better Homes Competition. In his heyday, Wills penned several well-received books including Houses for Good Living, Better Houses for Budgeteers, and Living on the Level: One-Story…
  • Design snapshot: Tale of two garage doors

    Katie Hutchison
    12 Mar 2014 | 1:42 pm
    Rarely will you find a better side-by-side garage-door comparison than the one contained on this simple two-stall garage. The left-hand door befits a typical suburban home, and the right-hand door a more rural outbuilding. Hard to know how these two doors came to be side by side, but I suspect that both openings once sported doors like those in the right-hand opening, but that the door in the left-hand opening was ultimately replaced with an updated overhead door for ease of use.  It will come as no surprise to fellow House Enthusiasts, that in the case of informal, more rural, or more…

    At first, I was a bit surprised to discover this image from my Houzz page finding its way into Houzzers ideabooks with great frequency. Then I began to see that perhaps the very feature we had considered a design liability was actually a design asset. We originally designed this studio over a garage to have a single entrance via the French door in the shed dormer at the top of the rear stairs that climb from the deck. In an effort to make the stairs more integral to the building, we specified that the stair stringer walls be clad in cedar shingles to match the building's exterior…
  • Q: What does the architect say? A: Program

    Katie Hutchison
    9 Feb 2014 | 5:06 pm
    For a home design to be successful, it must first satisfy a homeowner's program, which is the design's spatial criteria. The program often takes the form of a list, describing each desired room/use, the approximate amount of square footage assigned to each, and the relationship of each to other rooms/uses, environmental forces (like sun and breezes), and/or the site. Think of the program as the building blocks of your home design -- whether your home will be new construction or a renovation/addition. Your program will be unique to you. It should reflect how you would like to experience…

To put this in perspective, the majority of the items sold by Wholefoods and Tesco are purchased from other companies and brands, but those two supermarkets are still brands within their own right.

Having first been released in 2002 it is not a new movie, but one that carries a very important message for all South Africans. In the film, South African musicians, playwrights, poets and activists recall the struggle against apartheid from the 1940s to the 1990s that…

  • Humans and their Relationship with Color

    sarahdoczy
    7 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    Humans have a very deep relationship with color, both on an emotional level and cultural level. Emotionally speaking, we think of "cool blues" and "warm yellows". Colors can either make us feel peaceful, or energized. Culturally speaking, for example, purple is a sign of royalty, and the bright colors of spices are often used in Indian food. Understanding the meaning of the different colors is very important in all design. People who use color in advertising and logos go to great lengths to consider the psychology of the colors behind what they are creating.   Let's take a closer look at…

    The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen (short for Geländewagen aka cross country vehicle) is a design icon in its own right. Love it or hate it, that shape is unmistakeable, and has definitely has quite a history. It even has a fascinating Wikipedia page - apparently it was originally created as a military vehicle in the early 70s and the first civilian version emerged in 1979. And it’s the “longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler’s history, with a span of 32 years. Only the UNIMOG beats it.” Amazing right? And unlike most other vehicles, the general body shape and style has…

At first glance, this bizarre retro car porn of a film is just that… until you see the original it’s an homage to - the ‘65 piece ‘Kustom Kar Kommandos’ by Kenneth Anger… and to peel back the layers even further, Chandelier Creative and Maserati further indulged my curiosity with a loaner Maserati Ghibli S Q4 and a behind the scenes peek at…

    You know how sometimes you’re headed to some town you’ve only seen from an interstate highway (near the Peachoid) for a wedding and your expectations are low? This weekend I traveled to Greenville, South Carolina for a wedding and I could not get over how charming and beautiful that town was. I even ran into John Legend twice – go figure! Once a thriving textile town, Greenville went through a rough patch, but now the downtown area, the west end and the newly developed Swamp Rabbit Trail along the Reedy river are very impressive.

    You read that right, by “The Fonts,” I am not coming up with some Kardashian-esque shortening for The Fontainebleau Hotel. Nope, I’m talking fonts. So I promised you some more fun snapshots from Miami. Clearly I’m not much of a photographer, but between the light, the architecture and, ahem, Instagram filters, it’s kind of hard to take an ugly shot there. Though it seems it is hard to take a shot from across the street without capturing a Ryder truck or road construction barrels and tractors. One of my favorite things about Miami is the fun take on art deco…

What a gorgeous city Miami is. We stayed in South Beach at this small-ish swanky joint, The Gale, and were surrounded by fun vintage photos in our room and crisp, shall we say “space-saving”…

Lawsuits are the ultimate way to get two sides to come to an agreement, but it’s also an extremely confrontational style of advocacy. A more collaborative process might be a better way to reach your goal with an agreement that is a win for everyone.

    We heard a little bit about The Upshot last month. Now we get to see it. From editor David Leonhardt on what the site is about: One of our highest priorities will be unearthing data sets — and analyzing existing ones — in ways that illuminate and explain the news. Our first day of material, both political and economic, should give you a sense of what we hope to do with data.

We calculated musical taste scores using data from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (via the Martin Prosperity Institute) and state level music preferences from Wikipedia. The scores include music genre preference survey data and genre performer concentrations by metro, weighted by that metro's influence on the music scene. We took the scores for each metro and used a spatial statistics method called nearest neighbors to create the heatmap.

The data itself is also worth your time, in case you're looking for a side project. It comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and spans 1968 through 2010. I can tell you…

Of them, 4,871,270 blocks totaling 4.61 million square kilometers were reported to have no population living inside them.

  • Japanese Sliding Door Handles: Artworks in the Home

    Yoshihiko Mano
    21 Apr 2014 | 2:31 am
    Old Japanese houses were laced with lots of arts and crafts. The rooms were partitioned by byobu screens. Shoji paper screens and kumiko woodwork had geometrical designs. And then there is the fusuma, or sliding door, which often had elaborate artwork on them. Go to a museum to see old Japanese artworks and what do you notice? Rather than paintings in frames, there are far more Japanese “artworks” that are integrated into these kinds of furnishings. Of course, only the very elite who live in lavish homes are able to enjoy them. What is interesting, though, is how art was so much…

    A base or a hideout. Well, whatever you called it — you can bet that you had one as a kid. But it’s not just about larking around when young. Hideouts can also be hubs for alternate ways of living, a refuge and a means of returning to a more innocent childhood world. Hideouts are necessary spaces in everyday life and function like an abode. Since we are thinking about all things related to Japanese homes at the moment, when we heard about a new book by Yuki Kageyama called “Secret Hideouts for Grown-Ups”, we were intrigued to say the least. It introduces a range of…

In many ways translating the original Hobonichi Techo into something accessible worldwide seems a daunting task. But on the other hand, as creative director and stylist Sonya Park says, Japan is full of things that could potentially be worldwide hits if only the national language was English. Sonya was charged with re-inventing the Hobonichi Planner as an English product. Born in Korea and growing up in Hawaii, her 20-some years in Japan put her in a unique position to…

    This might make bus designers angry but we tend to think of buses as looking mostly the same. With the notable exceptions of London’s famous double-deckers and theme park buses like you see at Disneyland, we don’t tend to remember the buses we see every day on Tokyo’s roads. But then we encountered this bus and everything changed. The eCOM-8 is an electric bus that ferries passengers along the historical streets of Kiryu City in Gunma Prefecture. Oh, and it’s got eight wheels. We spoke to the eCOM-8 designer Masahiro Munemura of Think Together to find out more.

About a year later, so the members could get used to presenting on TV, they were given a late night slot with a new variety show “The! Tetsuwan! DASH!!”.

  • På med fuglen!

    Martin Schorling
    10 Apr 2014 | 8:56 am
    Det er svært at skille sig ud i et massivt og stigende komplekst medie-billede som person eller organisation, men du kan finde inspiration i en ældgammel metode: peacocking (fordi påfuglning lyder dumt). Det er egentligt ikke et nyt fænomen, peacocking – Naturen har gennem mange millioner år brugt ekstreme farver, danse, og spøjs adfærd for at tiltrække sig opmærksomhed. Oftest er det hanner i parringshumør som kæmper om hunnernes opmærksomhed, men det bruges også til at skræmme konkurrenter væk…

    Det er ikke kun smartwatches og andre ”wrist-party” teknologier der hitter for tiden. Innovation Lab har besøgt Billie Whitehouse fra Wearable Experiments i New York, der laver undertøj, t-shirts og blazere der alle baserer sig på haptiske feedback systemer. Deres succes er indtil videre baseret på undertøjsserien Fundaware, der muligvis løser fremtidens langdistanceforhold, og selveste Playboy Mansion har vist interesse, for den lidt anderledes lingeri-serie. Sensorerne placeret i Fundaware (gæt selv hvor.....) er forbundet med en…

    Her i starten af det nye årtusind har man knap brug for en fysisk forretning og dermed er geografien taget ud af salgsligningen. Det giver dig nye muligheder for at omstrukturere din virksomhed, fortælle om den og i sidste ende optimere på bundlinjen. Verden er blevet mindre, men kunderne flere. Men hvad er det for tendenser, der tegner sig for at fange medarbejderens og kundernes opmærksomhed, så de ikke bare klikker videre?

    A few days ago Chris Copping (@naoko) on twitter said that watching the London Marathon almost felt like a johnson banks portfolio review. So, we thought we’d have a dig around, and, yes it’s true, our identities for Cystic Fibrosis, Shelter, Save the Children, Anthony Nolan and Christian Aid did seem to be on hundreds, maybe thousands of vests, t-shirts, banners and balloons. Here are some photos culled from, well, everywhere really. Not sure how much actual running was done by team Save the Children. Well done Wendy (above) and for everyone else who made it to the end.

  • Wally Olins: king of kerfuffle

    15 Apr 2014 | 8:17 am
    The man who gave Michael Johnson his first job, Wally Olins, died yesterday. In this piece Johnson remembers some of Olins’ famous foibles. I first met Wally nearly thirty years ago, when, as a nervous student, I took a train down to London from the soggy shores of the North-West, clutching a box of slides of my final project. I’m not sure how my slightly hapless tutor had managed to swing the already world-famous Olins as my external project examiner but there I was, in the ubiquitous eighties design consultancy reception, perspiring furiously. My precise memories of the next two…

Cystic Fibrosis has also got into D&AD’s annual selection of work, in the writing category (which is pretty unusual for a branding project), perhaps as a result of there being over 40 ‘logos’ and counting, using the ‘is…’ idea. Also into D&AD, under branding, the new scheme for the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee), which thus far has helped…

    Left: Mandagrams, right: Chineasy Recently I was walking through an area of Shanghai dedicated to up-and-coming designers of all descriptions. There was some interesting work on display, but some of it felt, well, familiar. I quizzed my locally based colleague and he replied with a quote I’ve never forgotten: ‘well, over here we see copying as a form of flattery’. That really stuck with me. Designers have increasingly realised the worth of what they do and the ownership of their ideas, but in an internet age how realistic can we be? We’re more finely tuned to the protection of ideas,…

    Julya Buhain
    21 Apr 2014 | 6:13 pm
    Can UI go so far as saving a life? Newer models of cars these days, more often than not, come with a touch screen to control everything from what the car is playing, gps/maps to the air conditioning. Yet, in a vehicle where focus must be maintained at all times, we have to give a moment to consider how distracting the in-car UX actually is. When you’re on the road, you have about maybe, a second or two to glance at the screen and make your adjustments. UX should be straightforward with little room for fiddling or navigating through a maze of menus and options to get the desired result.

    Chris Spooner
    13 Apr 2014 | 11:00 pm
    The classic illustration style used on money is something I’ve always wanted to figure out how to replicate in Photoshop. There’s plenty of Photoshop tutorials that show how to create a basic halftone line effect, but they never quite capture that authentic engraved look with plenty of shading and tone. After lots of trial and error I finally managed to figure it out, so here’s an in depth tutorial on how to create a realistic money illustration effect in Photoshop (with some help from Illustrator!).The effect we’ll be creating in today’s tutorial is this vintage…

    The highlight of this adaptive re-use project is the introduction of a new façade that enables the circa 1950′s building to morph from an enclosed structure into an environment that invites the community into the space. The transformation was achieved by essentially replacing the entire front façade with a double-height, double hung floor-to-ceiling window wall that can be raised or lowered depending upon the needs of the user. The wall is operated by engaging a pedal-to unlock the safety mechanism- then turning a hand wheel which activates a series of gears and pulleys that opens the…

    European countries began exploring and seeking to dominate the rest of the world during the 15th and 16th centuries, thanks to their ability to control sea routes and to the discovery of the American continent. In the 19th century, energized by the industrial revolution and under pressure from a rapidly growing population, Europe launched a new period of colonial expansion, inspired by the discovery of new markets, new areas for the settlement of Europe’s poor migrants, and the desire to ” civilize the barbarian nations “. via European colonial Empires, British, French in the…

    This is more philosophical – but as a window into an amazing world – its great. Two preliminary observations about the Japanese cultural tradition to begin with. The first is that classical Japanese philosophy understands the basic reality as constant change, or (to use a Buddhist expression) impermanence. The world of flux that presents itself to our senses is the only reality: there is no conception of some stable “Platonic” realm above or behind it. The arts in Japan have traditionally reflected this fundamental impermanence—sometimes lamenting but more often celebrating…

Well take a look at this wikipedia text and start your journey into an amazing world. The modern study of Japanese aesthetics in the Western sense only started a little over two hundred years ago.

    Let’s say you’re not a hunter, or at least not a skilled one, putting an animal head on your wall that you bought kind of feels like a cop-out, right? Instead of pasting a game trophy above your fireplace with exactly zero story behind it, why not put something similar up that looks mighty fine? These Hand-Carved Game Trophies from Restoration Hardware are crafted from solid basswood with an incredible attention to detail. Each is unique since they’re carved by ...

    22 Apr 2014 | 11:01 am
    Paris-based designer Maud Vantours is a master at constructing incredible 3D sculptures and mesmerizing patterns out of paper. After carefully cutting out assorted shapes, she meticulously builds up layer upon layer, superimposing the papers to create intricate and colorful works of art. Her paper works range from geometric patterns to dizzying spirals to delicately crafted flowers. With amazing texture, elaborate detail, and vibrant colors, each piece is a joy to look at. Although Vantours graduated from the Parisian school Duperré with a specialization in textiles and design, her favorite…

    22 Apr 2014 | 10:06 am
    South African artist Chris Slabber has created a spectacular new series called Destruction/Creation, which features images of gorgeous "sculptures" formed from paint swirling in water. While the colorful spirals of paint are already beautiful to look at, Slabber takes it one step further by using photo manipulation to form delicate figures in the billows of paint, creating stunning portraits that were inspired by Alberto Seveso's works. The flowing curves and twists of the paint swirls are particularly effective at emulating the smooth contours and exquisite facial features of the female…
  • Amnesty International Freedom Candles Burn as a Symbol of Hope

    Amnesty International Freedom Candles are a set of limited edition candles, designed by Mark Landwehr & Sven Waschk of Coarse, that were developed as a fundraiser for Amnesty International. Each of the three candles represents an injustice that Amnesty International continues to fight against. As the candles melt, the injustice disintegrates before our eyes and a more positive story is revealed underneath the wax in the form of a solid bronze cast. Each candle was sculpted in 3D and then poured and molded by hand. Stop Torture features a man kneeling on the ground, head down, hands bound…

    Advertising agencies work hard to brand a product and develop a specific slogan to convey the idea behind that brand. However, once the product is out in the world, there's no telling what will happen. And that's where Honest Slogans comes in. Created, written, and managed by graphic designer Clif Dickens, the website features hilariously reinterpreted concepts that translate slogans into what people really think. We first came across Dickens' blog last fall and he has been hard at work developing a bundle of new and equally funny ideas. He covers everything from Perrier water to the slinky,…

    One of our favorite pieces of luggage is the Samsonite Micro Suitcase Scooter† — it’s a regular-looking wheeled carry-on with a built-in skateboard. Flip the skateboard down your bag will scoot you around the airport! The Suitecase Scooter made us wonder what other products have been combined with skateboards. One surprising such product we found: baby strollers! Two stroller-skateboard hybrids especially stood out to us. One, the Longboard Stroller from Quinny, is still in the concept phase.

    Previously, Spot Cool Stuff reviewed five creative lights and lamps designed for outdoor use. With warm summer nights once again drawing us outside for patio dinners and into the backyard for late night hanging out, we thought we’d share five more outdoor lights we like. Each offers some degree of weather-proofing. Each is also, in it’s own way, cool: Ferry Berries Fortune Products No fairies are harmed in the production of Fairy Berries. Which is good, because there’s no other light that can add nighttime whimsy to a backyard as easily, as cheaply and in as cool a fashion.

    Spot Cool Stuff has seen multitudes of small, prefabricated structures. Even among that stiff competition, The Bunkie stands out. First, there’s the way the structure’s design came about. It’s the product of an unusual collaboration between an architectural firm (BLDG) and a furniture maker (608 Design). Indeed, it is hard to tell if The Bunkie is a small piece of architecture or a large, complex piece of furniture. The Premier Plus model of The Bunkie (pictured right) comes with a wall bed, drawers, shelves and a fireplace built in (along with a table and four chairs). With…

  • Object Lessons: Lodge Cast Iron

    Megan Wilson
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:00 am
    Cast-iron cooking pots are extremely durable. In fact, they last so long that we know that the Chinese were cooking with cast iron in the 5th century BC. And yet, cast iron has seen a decline in the kitchen since Teflon aluminum pans were introduced in the 1960s. But because of the health hazards now associated with Teflon and other nonstick-coated cookware, cast iron is making a comeback. As with many good things that are built to last, an iron cooking pan requires maintenance: a new pan needs to be seasoned with vegetable oil and baked at a high temperature for about an hour, then, over…

    It only takes a few dry cleanings to notice the chemical film on your favorite garments and the degradation of the fibers. I, for one, have lost a few good sweaters to a year of over zealous dry cleaning, during which I turned a blind eye to perchloroethylene, one of many solvents used in the process. Perchloroethylene is labeled carcinogenic to humans by the EPA, and its disposal must be handled as hazardous waste. In fact, the solvent will be illegal in California by 2023, but we're not quite there yet. Until then, we're finding a cleaner way to wash and preserve…

  • High Schoolers Use 3D Printing To Solve The Most Annoying Thing About Ketchup [Video]

    Leah Gonzalez
    22 Apr 2014 | 9:30 am
    North Liberty High School seniors Tyler Richards and Jonathan Thompson have designed a 3D-printed solution to the age old problem of ketchup in a bottle – that watery mess from the first squeeze. The students designed a 3D-printed cap insert that is shaped like an inverted mushroom and creates a sort of stopper for the nozzle of the bottle. The ketchup is pushed up and over it as it is squeezed out of the bottle and the water collects at the bottom and is prevented from being squeezed out with the ketchup. Richards and Thompson are students at their school’s Project Lead The Way…
  • Environmentalists Report Wasteful Behavior With New App

    Leah Gonzalez
    22 Apr 2014 | 9:08 am
    LightsOut is an app that reports and maps out specific places or instances where energy is being wasted. The app lets people take photos of energy inefficiencies and geotag them to put them on the map, for example behavior or events like lights that are left on during the day or trash that are not separated properly for recycling. People can report instances that are not contributing to the “clean and green” movement and start meaningful discussions on how to conserve energy in the community. The app is the brainchild of Spencer Lawrence who pitched the idea at the recent Boston…

  • Markham Winter of 2014

    1 Apr 2014 | 4:30 am
    Winter has finally ended in Markham where I live and it has seemed a very long and cold season this year. I decided to take a look at the weather data from Environment Canada and see whether my impression is supported by the data. The result is the graphic below. Click on it to see a larger version. Yes, 2014 was the coldest winter in Markham since 1994. We had an average temperature during the winter of -8.2 C this year and in 1994 it was -9.2 C. Both last year and especially 2012 were warmer than usual so it likely felt that much worse in comparison. We also had the 4th most snow in the…
  • Toronto Visible Minorities

    27 Sep 2013 | 4:30 am
    Toronto is the most multicultural city in the world. According to the 2011 National Household Survey, 46% of the population were foreign-born immigrants and 47% are members of a visible minority. (ref) These immigrants come from a wide variety of places across the globe and their diversity makes the city a truly remarkable place. I have created a Dot Map that shows a single point for every person in the Toronto area, coloured by visible minority status. There are 5,700,628 in all and they are positioned at their place of residence and coloured based on the information from the 2011 census and…
  • Toronto 311 Visualization

    6 Sep 2013 | 4:20 am
    The calls people make into the 311 service line in Toronto give an interesting glimpse into the pulse of the city. The City of Toronto makes this data available through their Open Data initiative. I did some analysis and design work with it to produce a visualization for illuminating time-based patterns during 2012. The visualization is a set of small multiple calendar heatmaps, one for each data series. The one shown above is for reports about 'long grass and weeds'. I was inspired to use this visual form by this example: Vehicles involved in fatal crashes by Nathan Yau. I experimented with…
  • Visual Book Selector

    8 May 2013 | 5:00 am
    One common pattern I see in many interactive applications is to support a person who is selecting a few items from some larger set. Often these items have various characteristics that the person wants to use in some way to guide their selection process. The characteristics can be numeric quantities, dates, categories, or names of things. Showing all the items in a list and allowing the person to sort by one of the attributes is often a decent default solution. In other cases it's more useful to consider multiple attributes at a time during the selection process. Maybe you want items that are…
  • Star Wars Movie Fingerprints

    27 Mar 2013 | 4:35 am
    Recently YouTube had a video that showed all six Star Wars movies at once. They were placed in a 2 by 3 matrix and had an audio track of all the movies superimposed. It was an interesting experiment that has since been removed based on copyright grounds. Before it was removed I was able to do some simple analysis on the video and extract some details of the individual episodes of the Star Wars series. Basically, I produced something very similar to a classic work called Cinema Redux™ by Brendan Dawes, done in 2004. Each individual movie in the series was reduced to a collection of small…

    Glass and ice are made in similar ways: a liquid substance is made into a solid one. The Frozen Lamp series from designer Maxim Velcovsky for lighting company Lasvit puts that similarity on display in a sophisticated set of pendant lights. The hanging lights look like carefully formed ice that is just beginning to melt. The glass looks slightly elongated and liquid, as though it is reaching slowly toward the floor. Each Frozen Lamp is individually hand-blown, making them all like small bespoke works of art. The glassblower must decide on the perfect time to pull the glass from the heat,…
  • Lightweight Backpacking Tent Reduces the Reviled Poles

    Second only to crawling, flying, and flesh-eating beasties, putting the tent together is probably the most annoying part of camping. Tent manufacturer Brooks-Range Mountaineering has introduced a tent line called Tension. The tents are, appropriately enough, held up using tension created by an internal cord system and just a couple of poles. The poles are, of course, the most vexing part of putting together a traditional tent. The Tension tents don’t entirely eliminate the poles, but the annoying pieces are limited to just three crossing the top of the tent to provide structure and…

    Living in the midst of a breathtaking landscape can pose a problem for those who want to live there. Should they build homes that will possibly change the look of the area, or should they try to blend in as much as possible? For this incredible house in Joshua Tree, California, the choice was the latter. The home was conceived and built by architect Ken Kellogg. Construction began in 1988 and did not finish until 1993 – a testament to the thought and care put into the structure’s shape, materials, and impact on the surrounding environment. Using concrete, glass, copper, and steel,…
  • Ingenious Axe Uses Kinetic Energy to Simplify Woodcutting

    Delana
    21 Apr 2014 | 6:00 pm
    Chopping wood is great exercise, but it’s also difficult and incredibly tiring. Luckily, most of us can pick up a bundle of firewood at the supermarket or convenience store. Still, humankind has been waiting centuries for someone to improve on the regular wood-chopping axe, and now Heikki Kärnä, a Finnish inventor, has done just that with the Vipukirves. Vipukirves translates to “lever axe,” which gives a good idea of what this ingenious tool does. It uses not only the power of your muscles and a simple blade to chop wood; it acts as a lever instead of just a wedge. The…

    Chuck McMahon

    After years of working with all kinds of companies, there’s one thing we’ve noticed across the board: there is often a clear divide between marketing departments and sales teams—and sometimes it’s a MAJOR divide. Plain and simple, salespeople don’t want to be told how to do their job by marketing folk, and as such, are highly […] The post Inbound Marketing Drives Leads: Bridging Divides Between Sales and Marketing appeared first on Vital Design.

    20 Nov 2013 | 3:39 am
    In an age in which we seem to have forgotten that looking backwards is not the way forwards, mainstream car design is stalling in manner which could bore any motor vehicle enthusiast to tears. Sure, you can have a few more curves with your Citroen, a more functional door for your Ford, but big-selling designs are changing at such a painfully slow rate that it’s hard to get your head around the idea that half a century ago (and even more recently than that), the shape, style and capabilities of our automobiles were being chopped and changed as quickly as quiffs turned to mullets, to…

    Earlier this week I posted this on my social network channels: Crowd-sourcing—the universe is determined to ruin creativity at all costs A few people liked, favorited, retweeted and seemed to agree, but one person actually asked me to elaborate on the comment. Of course I kindly obliged, and as I started my reply it really made me stop and think about the severity that crowd-sourcing has on creativity as a whole. It's much more than commoditizing the design industry. It actually destroys creativity and "innovation" on all levels in any industry. It cheapens the price of service which, in…

However, that doesn't mean there's not room for improvement. This is where Hack comes in. Hack is a language that runs on Facebook's HipHop Virtual Machine that takes the idea of the fast developement cycle of PHP and adds in some static typing and some niceties like lambda expressions and a variable number of arguments.

    Calling it “a local tattoo applied onto a universal design,” Spanish designer Alvaro Catalán de Ocón has conceived of a novel way to reinterpret a Mid-Century classic: via the Victorian art of needlepoint. The designer sought a way to transform a globally recognized object into a local, hand-crafted item, and settled upon the Eames Aluminum Chair, manufactured by Vitra, as his object of reinterpretation. Recognizing that the chair’s mesh fabric lent itself beautifully to “a non aggressive and reversible intervention,” Alvara placed the chair in the hands of a…

    Seth Fitts is a University of West Georgia Fine Arts graduate, though he claims his talents are a combination of self-taught and school-taught. His mixed media works are reminiscent of the watercolor field studies done by Victorians taking to the English countryside in the 19th century (one can almost imagine the spidery, sepia handwriting beside each creature, giving its Latin name), albeit studies done in a world almost but not quite our own. His animal portraits, while immediately recognizable, exhibit unusual proportions and shapes – overly rounded bodies, softened lines, quirky spirals…

    Charming illustrations are a valuable asset for both commercial and recreational viewing. They can turn a completely dull advertisement for a lawn mower into a nostalgic reminder of Good Ol’ American values where dad mowed the lawn while mom baked a less-than-memorable apple pie. Perhaps she’d even set it out on the window sill where a cat/dog/child might comically knock it over in an attempt to steal it. Good thing mom is prepared with a second pie stowed away in the oven. See what happened there? A simple illustration can trigger a vivid response within your imagination.

    17 Mar 2014 | 2:03 pm
    Storytelling and products go hand-in-hand. Crafting a good story requires establishing a tone and mood. What's the feel and messaging you are trying to tell throughout your product? Is it a cohesive tale, being told through visuals and content? These are crucial considerations when crafting a creative direction. Creative direction isn't a layer we add as an afterthought. Organizations and designers, however, tend to consider creative direction as a singular, herculean task. But it doesn't have to be. Creative direction can be two phases: creative and direction. The former is about figuring…

    Dijsselhof Throne Recently I had the opportunity to walk through the Gemeentemuseum The Hague (The Hague Municipal Museum of Modern Art) with a museum guide only and solely devoted to me. We visited a room I’d never seen before. It turns out the room is behind curtains because it is very susceptible to daylight. It is the Dijsselhof room. Gerrit Willem Dijsselhof was a Dutch Art Nouveau designer who had designed a room for a doctor who died before he could enjoy Dijsselhof’s design. Thereupon the room was donated to the museum while it was being build. So the museum has a rather…

    Corner Chair by Thijs Rinsema I’ve featured a similar corner chair earlier as if being designed by Theo van Doesburg, a member of the Dutch Stijl Group of which Gerrit Rietveld and Piet Mondrian were other members. It seems I misread the tags in the Belvedere Museum then. These photo’s I took at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag (or The Hague Municipal museum of modern art) recently and I’ve added the tag which shows the The Hague Museum as the owner of the chair. They should know best the provenance of their chair. Thijs Rinsema was not a member of De Stijl, but was a good friend…

    Grilli Type just recently released their latest typeface, GT Sectra, an angular serif. Originally designed for the long-form journalism magazine “Reportagen,” they describe the style as combining “the calligraphy of the broad nip pen with the sharpness of the scalpel.” With this recent release they’ve expanded the typeface to three submfamilies: GT Sectra, GT Sectra Fine, and GT Sectra Display for a total of 30 styles. One of the things I especially love about Grilli Type is their offering of Free Trial Fonts. It can be such a huge help when you’re working…

    Well that was fast. While we were all eating delicious Eastery dinners, it looks like Nike spent the weekend uninstalling most of its FuelBand team and casting doubt on the future of the entire wearable technology industry. The story had been quietly rumbling around for a week as social network Secret had seen multiple posts about the layoffs. Of course Nike still remains publicly committed to the product, issuing strong statements about the Nike+ FuelBand App, API, and is even the new launch of Fuel Lab which hopes to embed the Nike software in others’ devices.

  • The Message is Medium Rare

    Christopher Simmons
    10 Feb 2014 | 12:23 pm
    People often ask me where I get my inspiration, how I stay creative, and how I get “unstuck.” What we’ve found is that, if you look at the world both critically and with wonder, there are lessons to be learned everywhere. Every object, experience, relationship, environment, phrase—everything—has locked inside it an insight it wants to share. The trick is remembering to look for it. To investigate this idea, I’m eating a burger a week for the next 52 weeks and sharing the lessons they teach us.  You can follow the project at The Message is Medium Rare.

  • A Logo for London

    Christopher Simmons
    4 Oct 2013 | 11:11 am
    I just returned from the AGI conference in London. While there, I was reminded of two things. One, the UK (or perhaps specifically London) appears to care, engage with and value design far, far more than any American city — New York and San Francisco included. And, two, the Underground logo is perhaps my favorite of all time. The roundel, as it is known, was designed at the turn of the last century and first appeared in 1908. In that early iteration the red circle was a solid disk. The blue crossbar was used as a container for the station name. The combination of these two elements helped…

    Ogilvy Chairman Rory Sutherland has brilliant TED talk about, essentially, the value of value. More than a justification of advertising and marketing (and, I suppose, communication design), it is an argument for sustainability and democracy. He lays his argument out in about 15 minutes in which span he explains how child molesters can curtail climate change, how the Prussians rebranded the potato, and (my favorite) how Post successfully relaunched a cereal brand by changing absolutely nothing:   Here’s an excerpt which may as well serve as his thesis: If you think about it, if you…

    21 Apr 2014 | 12:12 pm
    Livio Scarpella is a contemporary Italian sculptor whose work harkens back to the incredible craftsmanship of marble sculptors from the 1700s. His series “Ghost Underground,” which depicts ghostly souls, both peaceful and in anguish, are influenced by the famous veiled sculptures that rest in the Cappella Sansevero, a chapel in the historic center of Naples, Italy. Opposite destinies (the “blessed” and “damned”) are signified through either a light quartz or dark amethyst rock placed near the heart of the sculpture. The crystals also serve an interesting contrast between the…

Dip your brush in yellow and red and mix the two.2. Now add a bit of Ultramarine blue. just a tiny bit!!3. As you mix it you will see the mixture turn a little brown, the way darker skin tones may look4. To make the color mixture favor lighter skin tones, add a bit of yellow. For darker skin tones, add red and blue.5. When painting, add water to give the color mixture a lighter tone.Enjoy!!

How amazing is that. P.S. I was watching a funny gamer on youtube, hence the crazy banter in the background.:D

I am a very firm believer it has no business being out in the middle of the kitchen floor, but rather belongs neatly nestled in a pull out trash cabinet. Let’s face it, a garbage bin, no mater how sleek, is an eyesore. That being said, I recognize that the pull-out trash cabinet is an option that adds cost to a project. So CCW wants to help!

    Occasionally a very special project comes along when the work CCW does is a part of a much greater whole. That was the case with Rob and Paul’s complete transformation of their home in the woods, Owl’s Nest. The finished home is simply spectacular, an oasis of modern, clean design surrounded by nature’s glory. Every inch was thoughtfully considered and elegantly realized. One of our senior designers, Amy Van Wie, got to work with Rob and Paul on the kitchen. She designed a clean and simple layout in keeping with the open floor plan of the house. The cabinets are sierra on maple veneer.

    An explosive trend is the popularity of rift cut veneer. Available on a variety of woods, the process produces a modern straight, striped grain appearance without any flakes.

    We woke up to a dreary, rainy spring day here at HGTV Headquarters. Sigh. But you know what they say about those April Showers! In honor of this hard-won spring, I made a quick and easy (and frankly adorable) cloud and raindrop magnet set. Watch the video to learn how: You can make your own set of magnets in about 10 minutes, plus some drying time, and it’s just the thing to dress up your fridge, locker, or message board. I’m all about a sunny day but I can’t help but smile at this happy little guy. Thirsty for more DIY projects? Check out the HGTV Crafternoon page

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…

    Have you ever created an infographic before? I’ve made a few ungainly attempts at the art myself, and I was blown away by how much work goes into infographic design! Performing the research, laying out the design, creating the illustrations—I ended up scrapping my whole project and starting over more than once just because I had trouble keeping everything organized.Fortunately, John T. Meyer of Lemonly showed me and a host of other attendees a straightforward, effective way to make a successful infographic in his webinar How to Make an Infographic: Data, Design, Distribute.If you missed…

  • Best Wireframing Practices for Website Construction

    Jason Tselentis
    22 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    When you (or your team) have embarked upon the “design phase” of a project, it’s important to wireframe your site’s layout before jumping into a mock-up or “skinned” prototype.The wireframe (or wire) functions in the same way that a blueprint or box model does for a construction company: It gives you basic shapes for reviewing the relationship between foreground and background, form and negative space. Boxes can be moved. Grids can be changed. And it’s rough for a reason: immediate rendering for immediate review. Wires are also handy for information architecture, and…

    Over the past couple of years, there has been an immense growth in popularity among social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest…just to name a few. Even though it feels like social media has been around forever, it is actually just getting started. Whether you are a local business owner or the CEO of a global corporation you know one thing to be absolute: Your target market is online.

  • Everyone Loves a Free T-Shirt, Right?

    Ina Bullari
    25 Mar 2014 | 12:18 pm
    Have you ever turned down anything that was free? Probably not, but better yet, why would you? When something is free no time or money is put forth from the receiver, thus, the feeling they get when acquiring something that is free, like a T-shirt, is just that much better than the satisfaction they would of received if say they themselves spent $15 on a brand new shirt. Now to better simplify and explain this concept, put yourself in this situation: You are at Panera, out to lunch with a friend, when all of a sudden one of the workers comes to your table offering you a free sample of one of…

    Promotional products are typically thought of as a cheap and effective way to attract customers. Which is true…to an extent, but that’s not its only propose. To be honest, if that’s the only way you are using promo, you’re doing it wrong. It takes more time and effort (not to mention money) to bring in new leads than it does to keep your existing clients. So promotional marketing can have even a greater value when it comes to customer retention and growing a company organically. However, we don’t typically see posts like this because it doesn’t have the…

  • Incredible photographs made from woven film strips

    Umar Ansari
    22 Apr 2014 | 6:00 pm
    Photography and tapestry combine to form these fragmented interpretations of iconic buildings and landmarks. South Korean artist Seung Hoon Park has been in the spotlight since 2005. In his series, titled “Textus,” each image begins with 8mm or 16mm camera film strips, which he lays down in rows to create a surface that acts as a single piece of film. Park then exposes two images using sets of vertical and horizontal strips that are woven together to create a final print. Check out some of Park’s finished creations below! Source

    New York based photographer Daniel Zvereff recently purchased the last existing stock of expired Kodak Aerochrome 120 film and took it to the Arctic for a photo shoot. The result is an amazing series of images using the old film with a unique aesthetic. Aerochrome 120 is a discontinued infrared film developed for the military and used to detect camouflaged objects.  The film turns greens and browns into magenta and bright blue. The film tints the arctic landscape pink, purple and blue and creates an other-worldly feel to an already beautiful place. His works highlights a landscape that with…

    There’s something to be said about weird tattoos. Some of them turn out to be fascinating pieces of art while others are best left not talked about. Another category is for the downright weird and Norwegian teenager Stian Ytterdahl has one of them.  Believe it or not, he got his receipt from a trip to McDonald’s tattooed on his forearm – with the McDonald’s logo and everything! The 18-year-old rose to fame when the tattoo parlor posted a photo of the body art calling it their “weirdest” tattoo yet. Stian isn’t bothered though as he said, “I…

I know that I will soon be trading in my current phone for what I find to be the latest and greatest. Kurt von Behrmann has reviewed the HTC One Max, one of the top entrants in the world of phablets. They are so named because their large screens make them a mix between a phone and a tablet. In my mind I have gone back and forth between a "phablet" and a large phone as far as what will next be my mobile communication device. I think the only way for me to decide is to hold both…

He was arguably the most influential danish designer that ever was, and we just wanted to show some love and recognition on this special day. He was responsible for designing hundreds of eye catching, timeless chairs, tables, cabinets, and pretty much anything that you could make out of wood. Most people have probably sat on or at least seen some of his classics without even knowing it. One of his most notable designs is the PP503 “the Chair" designed for PP Mobler, which was used by JFK and Nixon in the 1960’s…

Like most artists, his work did not receive the recognition it deserved until far after his prime had passed. The reason for this is unclear, but some experts say…

    Achille Castiglioni was one of the most influential industrial designers of the mid-1900’s. He often took inspiration from common, everyday objects, and transformed them into bold minimalist designs that used simple materials for a large effect.  Some of his most famous designs include the Arco Lamp, the Taccia Floor Lamp, and the Snoopy lamp, which was inspired from the classic kids cartoon. Many of these signature looks have stayed relevant for over half a decade, and continue to be produced by the manufacturer Flos.  If you watch television, keep an eye on the lighting used on set,…
