    Link pseudo-classes give web designers the ability to style various states of HTML links. The CSS pseudo-classes commonly used for styling hyperlinks are :link, :visited, :hover, :active, and :focus. Example: /* Default */ a { color: blue; } /* Unvisited links */ a:link { color: blue; } /* Visited links */ a:visited { color: purple; } /* Hover state */ a:hover { color: red; } /* Focused state */ a:focus { color: orange; } /* Activated state */ a:active { color: green; } Overview Here’s a description of each pseudo-class: :link – selects unvisited links. :visited – selects…

  • Sex, death and toy dinosaurs collide in Nobuyoshi Araki's latest exhibition

    19 Dec 2014 | 3:04 pm
    Since the mid-1960s, the Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki has been shooting sex, life, death, Kinbaku (a particular form of rope-based bondage) and more recently, plastic dinosaurs, mostly, but not always, in an oddly disengaged black and white. In this time he has shot tens of thousands of images and published more than 450 photobooks. They have made him one of the most admired, influential and controversial artist-photographers of the last half century. Of course it is the sex - or rather the strangely sexless images of bound and naked young women - that has received the most…
  • Reiulf Ramstad Architects' cluster of micro cabins is a compelling exercise in rural architecture

    19 Dec 2014 | 12:31 pm
    Sitting in an idyllic location near the city of Sandefjord, along Norway's southeastern coastline, is this secluded cluster of micro cabins. They constitute the holiday home of a multigenerational family, designed by Oslo-based Reiulf Ramstad Architects. The brief from the client was for a design that could not only be used as a single vacation house for the whole family; the layout should also allow for independent living when needed. 'This kind of structure for cabins is quite usual in Norway,' says Reiulf Ramstad architect Anders Tjønneland. Their solution was to design a set…
  • Gentleman's time: Swiss watchmaker IWC opens its first UK store on London's New Bond Street

    Just in time to catch last-minute Christmas shoppers, Richemont-owned Swiss watch brand IWC Schaffhausen has opened its first UK boutique on London's New Bond Street, marking a new direction in its retail design concept. Spread over two floors, the 90 sq m temple of horology was designed by London-based architect Chris Grainger-Herr, who has worked with IWC for over eight years, overseeing two generations of retail concepts, devising over 150 boutiques and 300 shop-in-shops, multiple exhibitions, as well as the IWC museum, its head offices and new manufacturing centre in Schaffhausen.
  • Rolls-Royce's Ghost Series II offers a new benchmark for the grand luxury saloon

    18 Dec 2014 | 12:57 pm
    Even the best car in the world needs a little help as it gets older. The original Ghost glided off the Goodwood production line in 2010, transforming Rolls-Royce's fortunes at a stroke. Expensively revived by BMW, the company was never going to get rich simply by building Phantoms, even if it was catering to the absolute upper levels of the customer stratosphere. The (slightly) smaller Ghost was a hit, boosting the company's sales and providing a new benchmark for the grand luxury saloon (although talk of margin and profit feels faintly crass in the world of Rolls-Royce). The Ghost is…

When I mentioned I had an appointment to go blonde tomorrow, there were a few comments that talked about certain hair colors not fitting the coloring of certain people. Those comments totally put me on the path down memory lane! When I was in middle school and high school, I think I went to a dozen different parties where a make-up specialist or fashion stylist would determine whether we were a winter, a spring, a summer or a fall. Then, once we knew what season we were, we would then be told what colors we could wear, and which we should…

  • Makers vs. Talkers & Why Now Is a Great Time for Creatives to Lead

    behanceteam
    19 Dec 2014 | 9:30 am
    Image via Iamsteveo.wordpress.com Research has shown that creatives aren’t often given the opportunity to lead because there’s an unconscious bias against them. People associate creativity with nonconformity and unconventionality. And when they think about an effective leader, they think about someone who brings order. Obviously if you believe that a leader’s role is to bring order, you wouldn’t want a creative to lead. (Of course, this has nothing to do with whether creatives actually can lead, it’s just a bias many of us have.) What’s interesting is that these qualities which…

In a guest post for OkDork, business coach John Corcoran shared how he got the attention of App Sumo founder Noah Kagan via email.

The result is fallowed land, workers moving out of town, farms collapsing, and businesses closing. The issue is much more complex than farmers versus environmentalists. It's about an antiquated water policy, a fragile ecosystem, and a growing population. Westlands is a series of images set against the…

    [ By WebUrbanist in Architecture & Houses & Residential. ] It is increasingly common to find London properties that have more subterranean interior space than above-ground square footage, a byproduct of the wealthy desiring to build additions without tripping over surface-oriented building codes. New legislation in some boroughs of the city aims to cut down on permits issue to such underground expansions and could provide guidance for other cities dealing with similar issues around the world. While not entirely unique to England, the phenomena has reached a critical point in the…

Built modestly by priests between 1721 and 1729, the hermitage of Sant Francesc started to crumble long ago, and by 2000 the roof had sunk and the vaults of the nave and chapels had partially collapsed, leaving it looking as if it the rest of it would come down at any time.

In contrast, the method covered in this tutorial is simple and relies only on the CSS width and height properties, which means the method…
  • Why the :visited Pseudo-class is Strange

    Jacob Gube
    15 Dec 2014 | 2:00 am
    Modern browsers have severely restrained the CSS properties that developers can use in a style rule that uses the :visited link pseudo-class. If you’re unfamiliar with this oddball pseudo-class, you may be wondering why your site’s visited links aren’t rendering as expected. If you try to style visited links by giving them a background-image, for instance, you’ll be surprised that you can no longer do so in modern browsers. You might think it’s a browser bug because there’s no immediately obvious reason why the following CSS doesn’t work: /* this will…
  • How to Quickly Set Up Less.js

    Jacob Gube
    10 Dec 2014 | 2:00 am
    Less.js (or just Less) is a CSS preprocessor that can revolutionize the way you write CSS. And it’s easy to install and set up for web development. There are several ways to install and configure Less, but for developing in the browser, or if you’re just interested in trying it out without having to install it on a web server, the fastest way is to reference the less.js library in an HTML document. Let me show you how. First, download Less.js from GitHub. Alternatively: If you use Git, fire up the CLI, navigate to your project’s directory, and then clone the Less repo to…

  • In the Details: Building the Perfect Spork

"We are a more globalized community with almost instant access to unprecedented amounts of information," Baclig says. "We are constantly striving to do more, learn more and experience more of this life around us." So he created...a spork. Specifically, Baclig created a compact aluminum spork that he has dubbed Kuma, and which he is now funding on Kickstarter in an effort to do a production run for next year. (As…

  • Rectangular Expandable Table Designs

    We've seen the design approaches taken by Jupe and Fletcher to create a circular expanding table. Now let's take a look at the more common table form factor, the rectangle, and some different approaches used to make it expandable. The first question a designer's got to answer is, where do the leaves go? Are they stored integrally, in Fletcher-like fashion, or meant to be stowed externally, a la Jupe? Resource Furniture's Goliath table takes the latter approach. And while it may seem cumbersome to remove each panel manually and find a place to store them, this is offset by two benefits: The…

    Dip, baby dip! Dipping anything from forks to baskets, glassware to plates, is most definitely a trend when it comes to decorating. I’m not sure if you noticed it yet in your part of the world, but to add to the dip trend I’ve been seeing more and more dipped paintings – where paintings (usually thrift shop finds) are literally dipped into enamel paint revealing only a small part of the original work. Some handpaint, but the results aren’t the same. And while it’s a micro trend now, this definitely has legs to become more common in certain parts of the world.

    Dunville & Co was a company established in 1801 that blended pure pot still whiskey as well as import tea in Belfast. The Prohibition caused Dunville to lose its American market and despite its repeal, Dunville did not recover sales and in 1936 the company was liquidated.   In 2013, almost 80 years after the last Dunville’s was distilled, the Echilinville Distillery revived the brand which is now back to life. The product is expected to reach the market in 2016 and the rebirth of this legendary whiskey has been managed, from a packaging point of view, by specialist design…

When I stumbled on this slide reel producer, it got me wondering it that same idea might be just retro enough to make it a possibility for 2015 promotions. It's a little pricey, but it's also a pretty impressive, whimsical way of showing your product, service, or idea. The supplier is…

    All Fall long I was obsessed with the idea of slow cookers and slow cooker recipes for the cold Winter months to come. Now that I have the renovation to tend to at the New Old Stone House, I have been spending 4-5 week nights in NYC each week. It is nice to see the Mr more often (the whole point in consolidating to the new old stone house) but the kitchen at the Brooklyn Heights Apartment is lacking in a big way. There is only about 13 inches of counter, two induction burners, a small sink and a refrigerator. This kitchen is pretty much made for boiling hot water for tea and ordering dinner…

  • New Old Stone House Renovation {Late 1930’s Kitchen}

    Amy Beth Cupp Dragoo
    4 Dec 2014 | 6:32 am
    At first glimpse, I thought about doing an unfitted kitchen renovation in the New Old Stone House. The whole idea came about because my friend was selling a vintage pair of late 1930’s cupboards from Fordham University that I thought would be pretty incredible in the space. (They have the original wavy glass – and just the right amount of patina.) When I realized the cupboards were a little too tall to fit in the new kitchen, I went back to the drawing board.During the renovation I want to be sensitive to the era that the house was built. I’ll do my best to make good choices…

  • The 10xers

    30 Nov 2014 | 5:09 pm
    Back in the days of Fotango (circa 2000 to 2007), we used to talk about the difference between an average developer and a rock star as being 10-100x. I used a number of techniques to create centres of gravity, a good working environment, interesting projects and went on a rampage hiring almost every star Perl developer we could get our hands on through the open source community. We certainly acquired a selection of stars.But, here's the rub. What I didn't realise fully at the time (but I do now) is that we also knew where to attack, what to commoditise and we had a very highly developed…
  • On the impact of CEOs

    30 Nov 2014 | 10:05 am
    There is a popular idea of the CEO as the lone mastermind directing the fortunes of a company, playing a game of chess against the CEOs of other companies. In some cases, more often the exception rather than the rule, this appears to be the case. But I want to talk about the rule not the exception.To begin with, we need to tackle this idea of the lone CEO. I've often faced situations when discussing gameplay where the CEO would respond "I'd love to do this but my management won't let me."The first time you'll hear this it is often a shock. Surely the CEO has absolute power in an organisation?
  • Fool's mate in Business

    29 Nov 2014 | 10:36 am
    I'm in the middle of writing up some work and I thought I'd spend a bit of time explaining how utterly ridiculous strategy is in many organisations. I know people like to talk about chess in the boardroom but most of the time it's more like equal parts of copying others, alchemy, astrology, story telling and gut feel.To illustrate this, I'm going to explain one super simple move which should never work but does - almost all the time. This move, I'll call Fool's mate. Now since this move is in play in various industries, I'm going to use a hypothetical example to demonstrate it. I'll…

    Consider the evolution of an activity such as computing infrastructure. Let us start with the genesis of the act of modern digital infrastructure (arguably the Z3 in 1943) and progress through the waves of improvement and disruption that have followed until eventually we end up with a commodity provided through utility services.The evolution of an act isn't a smooth process but has many released improvements each of which will diffuse in society. If you examine the diffusion curves for each improving version, they generally have different time length and market sizes (i.e. they're not…

    16 Nov 2014 | 11:55 am
    In the early days, we used to apply one size fits all methodology because we didn't know better (see figure 1). We used to yo-yo between methods but in 2002, most of us in the open source world had gone "all agile" whilst the enterprise was mainly "all waterfall and all outsourcing". Under such a model, the IT organisation is one large department and one attitude. Be warned, single methods fail to deal with evolution and tend to run into excessive change control cost overruns.Figure 1 - circa 2002 - One size rules all, OK!By 2004, in the open source world, we had learned that one size fits…

  • New Small-House book tidbits: Wood stoves

    Katie Hutchison
    8 Dec 2014 | 12:11 pm
    Wood stove insert in our c. 1948 small houseWith a chill in the air and the cozy season upon us, I thought I'd share some thoughts about wood stoves, sparked by the small-houses book I'm writing. Nowadays, a wood-stove insert -- like the one we had installed in our small-house fireplace (above) -- or a freestanding wood stove is a far more efficient way to enjoy the warmth and glow of a wood fire than a conventional wood-burning fireplace. Current EPA standards for wood stoves mean they deliver more heat to your home and yield less particulate emissions. So you don't need to acquire, store,…
  • New Small-House book tidbits: Translucent panels

    Katie Hutchison
    17 Oct 2014 | 2:16 pm
    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…

    Drought-tolerant sedums are a popular choice for planted roofs.My new book for The Taunton Press, tentatively titled The New Small House, is well underway. We've been busy selecting houses to feature, scheduling photo shoots, and beginning to create the content that someday (hopefully) you will find on a shelf in a store near you. As the book takes shape, I aim to share here some tidbits of what I'm learning along the way.  A few of the houses in the book feature planted roofs, which provide insulation and an effective away to mitigate storm-water run-off, all while beautifully…

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

    This article has been contributed by Wes McDowell giving an honest, insightful review of Netflix’s original documentary, Print the Legend. Every new technology has its share of names. Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, and Nolan Bushnell brought us home computing. Jeff Bezos, Pierre Omidyar, and Elon Musk turned e-commerce into a massive part of our daily lives. Johannes Gutenberg took the printing press and forever changed how we get our information.

    It’s an exciting time for brand builders. Online platforms are opening up untold opportunities for brands to share layered nuggets of communication with willing audiences around the world. Traditional constraints of time and budgets have been obliterated by cheaper production options and media channels that welcome longer, more detailed story-telling. This really was an amazing year for content producers and it was tough to single out just ten top ads, but we needed to focus on the stories that stuck a harmonious cord and when looking back, would best sum up this year of advertising.

Understanding basic SEO, the elements of a workable content plan and how to communicate an idea to an online community are powerful skills to possess and propel you forward in 2015.

    Do you find that as a South African business with global aspirations that your South African roots are a liability when doing business internationally? There are two ways of looking at this. If you’re in the wine industry, mine platinum or you work at Naspers, then being a South African business is probably of value when meeting foreign counterparts. But should your business be trying to break into a market where traditionally there isn’t an automatic perception that a South African brand can offer any value in that field – then perhaps your South African roots are better…

    There are now two Christmas ads from UK retailers that are shooting the lights out online, the most recent one being the new Sainsbury’s Christmas 2014 ad sharing the story of the famous WW1 Christmas truce. Last week it was John Lewis’ #MontythePenguin who was taking names and helping to shed tears with a vulnerable tale of imagination. Both are completely different, but both make use of an emotionally charged narrative to share with the audience the essence of what makes Christmas, Christmas. Giving.

    Sean Carmichael
    18 Dec 2014 | 7:56 am
    [ Transcript Available ] Have you seen style tiles, element collages, or pattern libraries? These are just a few examples of how designers are reacting to the explosion of devices and interface sizes. After all, thinking about the parts of a “page”—not just the sum of those parts—helps us create smart, scalable, maintainable designs for all those newfangled technologies. And a leading voice behind this elemental thinking is Brad Frost. In this talk, he’ll introduce Atomic Design, a methodology you can use to create a design system in your organization. You’ll learn how to:…

    It's always tough to pick my favorite visualization projects. I mean, it's a challenge to pick and rank your favorite anything really. So much depends on what you feel like at the time, and there's a lot of good work out there. Nevertheless, I gave it a go. Continue reading →

    I'm pretty sure there's a ton of untapped potential in data represented physically. Maybe not in the analytical insights sense but in that fuzzy unmeasured way of feeling data somehow. That might be my new point of interest for next year, and it'll probably involve beer and LEGOs.

  • Using baseball bats to display data

    Nathan Yau
    17 Dec 2014 | 3:52 am
    When a baseball player is hitting well, commentators will sometimes say that it looks like he's hitting with a bigger bat out there. The ACME Catalog, a creative technology studio, took the phrase to a more literal sense. They used baseball bats to represent on-base plus slugging (OPS), "the ability of a player both to get on base and to hit for power," for standout players during the regular season versus the World Series. The standard baseball bat is about two and a half inches in diameter, which was used to represent the league average OPS. With a quick calculation, find how much greater a…
  • Increasing rates of men who don’t work

    Nathan Yau
    16 Dec 2014 | 3:22 am
    Recent data from the Census Bureau suggests the rate of non-working men has increased. As more women go to work and more men stay at home to take care of the kids, you'd expect for the number of stay-at-home dads to contribute significantly to that rate. But maybe not. There are more noticeable factors to consider like retirement age, disability, and going to school. Amanda Cox for the Upshot has graphs for you. See also where the men aren't working.

  • When data gets creepy

    Nathan Yau
    15 Dec 2014 | 5:29 am
    You make and publish bits of data about yourself, intentionally and unintentionally, and it goes to the indexed public web or to companies' private black boxes. Ben Goldacre explains why it's worth caring about these traces. It's less hoorah and more example-driven than these sort of articles tend to be, and there's isn't a single mention of being awash in data. At the simplest level, even the act of putting lots of data in one place — and making it searchable — can change its accessibility. As a doctor, I have been to the house of a newspaper hoarder; as a researcher, I have been…

  • The Usual Snowmen

    16 Dec 2014 | 7:25 am
    It’s Christmas card time again at johnson banks towers, and this year we’re developing a theme we started last year. Essentially, the task is to take whatever the Xmas stamp is for the year, and design the ‘rest’ of the card around it. The annual stamps (in the UK at least) are usually fairly predictable fare, and sure enough this year’s features children with Christmas trees, carol singers, yada yada yada. So, actually quite hard to inject a twist until we decided that it would be funny/suitably twisted if the stamp that features a snowman, was carefully positioned at the end…

    We’ve discovered a series of old pieces in a recent clear-out that seem worthy of another look. Up first – a review of the 2005 Design Museum show dedicated to design legend, Robert Brownjohn.   My guess is that many of this blog’s readers will never have heard of Robert Brownjohn. Yet to those who knew him personally, or know the work, he’s attained a mythical, almost legendary status that might puzzle non-believers. His was a live fast, die (relatively) young tale that left behind many stories of his unhinged lifestyle, but not a vast archive of work. Until recently it took…

Looking back at our work in this sector, it took us a while to get up to speed in terms of brand and identity – the harsh truth of the British boardroom is that large identity schemes aren’t doled out quickly to companies until there’s some proof that you can really deliver.

The theme of manipulating intricate cutouts continues in cold hard steel with the series “Shadow of Knives”, where he weaves a cautionary tale about our ever-eager consumer society. “Shadow of Knives” is a warning to society – human beings will eventually destroy themselves because of their gluttony and their abuse of animals.” As well as the poignant message, these works are an excellent example of the…

People love the combination of crisp laser definition with the reflective sheen of mirror acrylic, and to create these effects there are a few key points to remember. The main one is that you’re not etching into the surface of the acrylic, but rather through the reflective coating on the rear of the material. Another tip that may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how…

    I missed some of the awkward “coming-of-age” years on the Android platform with Honeycomb (3.0), Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) and Jelly Bean (4.1 – 4.3). My first true experience with Android was earlier this year on KitKat 4.4. The OS was nice, and not too jarring of a change from iOS 7 (at the time), but several quirks in the software made it impossible for me to fully abandon the Apple ecosystem. This month’s release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, however, feels like it could be the tipping point. There are a lot of really amazing features that Android brings to the table…

    A book cover is significant for bookworms just as an album cover is meaningful for record collectors. Not only do they reflect the story within the book or the overall mood of the record, they also represent the personality of the artists, musicians, and the designers behind the cover art. Some people would browse through bookshops looking for eye-catching covers as a way of discovering new authors. Same goes for music junkies who want to explore and hear new songs and musicians. If that’s the case, then design definitely plays a vital role. The old saying states that we should not…

    Stefan Wernak and the team at Sydney-based The Magnificent Itch created this masterfully animated spot. I asked Stefan to tell us a little more about the process:“I animated the characters in Maya with simple surface shaders to get a 2D look. Everything else was animated in After Effects including all the 2D flashes and glints. I kept the character animation style simple as the deadline was pretty tight and it’s great to be able to do lot’s of 2D tricks like breaking bones and squash and stretch to add some zing to it. We love doing character stuff and mixing 2D and 3D.”

    Dunville & Co was a company established in 1801 that blended pure pot still whiskey as well as import tea in Belfast. The Prohibition caused Dunville to lose its American market and despite its repeal, Dunville did not recover sales and in 1936 the company was liquidated.   In 2013, almost 80 years after the last Dunville’s was distilled, the Echilinville Distillery revived the brand which is now back to life.

The pen not only rounds out his look, but it's one of his favorite gifts of all time.  I haven't always been a great “gifter.” For years I'd struggled to give great gifts because I was paralyzed by indecision, constraints, or lack of inspiration — until I discovered five principles to guide…

We interviewed teachers, principals, and state leaders to understand the needs of educators in the changing education landscape. We found that new companies entering the K-12 space are likely to face several challenges.

    The San Francisco Bay Area is notorious for the wealth of Silicon Valley, yet at least 1 in 5 Bay Area residents live in poverty. With housing prices rising 18% since last year, more of the population is struggling to survive than before. Poverty in the Bay Area is getting worse, not better. Tipping Point Community, a San Francisco Bay Area grant-making organization, screens nonprofits rigorously to find, fund and partner with the most effective groups helping low-income people achieve self-sufficiency. They focus their funding in four key areas: Education, Employment, Wellness, and Housing.

    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?

    It’s Christmas cookie time and I’m excited to share this cute and easy idea for Rudolph Cookies! This fun dessert is a spin off from my favorite Double Chocolate Chip Rolo Cookies. I wanted to add a different design along with my holly decorated cookies. After finding some gingerbread sprinkles, I was inspired to turn them into reindeers. This chocolate chip cookie recipe is so soft, plus they taste amazing. Decorating cookies like Rudolph make the perfect cookie for gift giving, holiday party or a cookie exchange.

    Logo Design Love

  • An Authentic update

    David Airey
    11 Dec 2014 | 3:52 am
    The logo for Cameron Moll’s Authentic Jobs has been nicely updated by Sergey Shapiro. The previous wordmark was a slightly customised version of Alejandro Paul’s Calgary Script, whereas the new design has been digitised from one of Sergey’s type sketches. With thoughts of extending the brand, I like the idea of “Authentic” as a kind of umbrella. “It’s a mark that’s not only extensible, but one we can now unquestionably claim as ours.” From the Authentic Jobs Tumblr.

    A new logo for soft drink brand 7up. Shown in context, with typically vague slogan. “Feels good to be you.” You could put that after any product and it would mean just as little. Regardless, I’ve always known the 7up brand for its name and for that red circle, so it makes sense to strip the previous design of unnecessary elements. Here’s the earlier logo from 2010, by TracyLocke. And this is what came before the 2010 version. There were others before that (shown on the CR Blog), but I’ll jump to the start with the first logo from 1929, back when 7up contained lithium…

    The Firebelly Design team (on Behance) got in touch with an excellent identity for Divvy, Chicago’s bike-share system. “The double-V ligature, is based on the guillemet or angled quotes. In typography this glyph is traditionally used to indicate direction and motion. Marked onto streets across the world, this double arrow symbolizes the shared use bicyclists and motorists have of roads.” “…we found Pantone 298c to be the perfect color to provide a visual connection to the flag while greatly increasing cyclist presence to the passing cars in our busy urban environment.”…

    David Airey
    16 Nov 2014 | 12:41 pm
    “Legend has it that a young designer scribbled the now iconic signature on a paper napkin. Richard Branson loved it for it’s ‘in your face’ simplicity, attitude and energy.” Read more on the Virgin website. Via Saniya Haroon. It reads as Virqin (with a ‘q’) to me. I thought I’d see what it looks like with a slight curve on the descender of the ‘g’. Perhaps the brand’s so well known that the mark is seen as a shape as much as a word. From the archives: Stretching the Virgin logo.

    Those of you who are regular TCH readers know of CJ Hendry already. She is the extraordinary pen-and-ink artist whose work we fell in love with and then introduced to the public, first through Instagram and then at our Art Hunter temporary art experience in Sydney that we hosted with Jaguar.   The success of her work has been absolutely phenomenal, and for a good reason. Nothing compares to the mesmerising result of her painstaking work. Each image appears to be an enlargement of a black-and-white photograph, except that it isn’t. It is a one-of-a-kind, hand-drawn piece of art.

  • Cake in a Can by The Food Ministry

    18 Dec 2014 | 12:31 pm
    Stumped for holiday dessert ideas? Let them eat cake, says the UK-based company The Food Ministry, which has managed to turn run-of-the-mill cake into a novelty act. The company’s Cake in a Can concept is a recipe for cake making that includes all ingredients and oven-ready, retro-styled can. Empty the can’s ingredients into a bowl, add water, stir, pour back into (well oiled) can, and pop into the oven. Out comes cake for one, primed for decoration of choice, and ready to serve, no dessert plates needed. If the dreaded Christmas fruit cake doesn’t induce interest, a slew…

    Oh to be in Paris. Nendo, the Japanese design studio, has introduced another incentive to visit the City of Light: an architecturally inspired Häagen-Dazs ice cream cake, designed specifically for Christmas. The Village cake design features a cluster of houses, each composed of chocolate, sitting atop a thick slab of ice cream. “Christmas is about homecoming, about spending time together with family, so we created a cake that’s a small village, composed of houses clustered closely together,” says Nendo. White chocolate powder is expertly dusted over the ice cream base,…

    With holiday decor crowding the landscape, it’s worth noting that getting into the spirit of things doesn’t mean having to surrender to garish color schemes. Like all true modernists, a restrained color palette and mindfully chosen modern decorations are our cup of tea—which explains why we find ourselves turning north for inspiration year after year. As illustrated in these vignettes, a decidedly Scandinavian approach—earth tones, graphic details, a touch of sparkle, and a generous heaping of whimsy—is a surefire path towards good cheer, and a home that’s oh…

    19 Dec 2014 | 10:00 am
    This modern home in Seattle’s Alki neighborhood sits steps away from the water of Alki Beach. Designed by Alloy Design Group, the three bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom residence has sloped rooflines and is mostly clad in large brown and white panels, with the boxy entrance volume covered in horizontal wood slats. The neutral facade is set off with a bright green door. A roof deck is built onto the second level above the single-story, box-like volume. To access the roof deck, you have to walk across a bridge on the interior. The same green is used around this doorway that’s on…

    In Nikari’s project “5 Studies for Nature”, the fifth and final design comes from second year industrial design student Jari Devad in Stockholm, Sweden, as part of a competition by the university Konstfack. The project went around the world to Helsinki, Finland, Guangdong, China, Toronto, Canada, and Milan, Italy before landing in Stockholm. The Stockholm study is a wooden stool made from dark walnut, which helps to emphasize the angles of the stool’s surface. Devad studied traditional Swedish wood carving that was mastered by Axel Robert Petersson, and by using 3D…

    Setting goals is hard, and achieving them can be even harder, so I have decided to put some positive pressure on myself (inspired by the The Monk who sold his Ferrari) and share my list of personal goals for 2015. The last few years have proved challenging, but I’m aiming to make the next few ones to remember (for different reasons), so to push myself, I felt sharing my goals might make it easier for me to achieve them in the long run.

    I learnt a lot at school, 99% I’m sure I can’t remember but somethings have stuck. One of my most inspirational teachers at school once told me that “you can’t fully understand something until you can confidently articulate it”. He nailed it. I’m not sure if someone had said that to him before or he just made it up there and then to make me revise harder, but he was right all the same. Being able to explain a problem is understanding it, because if you can do that you can analysis it, break it down and solve it.

    As the year comes to an end, I thought it might be useful to take look back at the last few years of my life. A fair amount has happened. They say your University years are the ones that shape you, which I can agree with. I started a business with one of my best friends from Uni and came out of my time at Loughborough with my eyes open. I felt liberated, like I could do anything. But I have a feeling that these last 2 years will be the ones that bring clarity and focus to my life. The forging of the steel.

    20 Nov 2014 | 12:18 pm
    I’ve asked myself a question for a while now, ‘how do I get better at writing?’, and I’ve concluded I simply just have to do it more. So I have set myself a goal and I am going to write 1000 words a week for the next year. That’s 52,000 words in total and when put like that it sounds like a lot, but it isn’t. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is 76,944 words long, so at this rate it would take me a year and a half to write the first Harry Potter book, but it’s a start, and starting is the hardest part. Or so they tell me. Why this…

In dry years the west side is last in line for water allocations. Recent policy has cut their allocation even further. The result is fallowed land, workers moving out of town, farms collapsing, and businesses closing. The issue is much more complex than farmers versus environmentalists.

We'd do this by debating a single question a day, exchanging ideas on what it means to be a product designer. A question that had to be asked and answered in the ticking clock of 24 hours. More than a 100 days later and after some 5,000 contributions, our comrades in design ran with the challenge. Some articulate and outstanding designers, such as Ren Walker, Bryce Howiston, and Antonin Januska, are questioning and challenge ideas, which is the core of being a product…

    When it comes to providing proper acknowledgement to the dead, there is no doubt that people really give high regards to them, especially when it comes to their loved ones. There can be two reasons for this: one is maybe because there is this certain need to provide for their last “human” experience on earth, and another is that maybe doing so has really just become a prescribed tradition for the human race. However, whatever the reason, it can’t also be denied how people over the years haven’t forgotten this practice and even developed new ways in treating their dead. As years passed…

A story tells of how challenge coins were used in the Roman legion. It was given as bonus payment to Roman soldiers for exemplary service. These coins had special markings. Often, the symbol of the legion to which the soldier belonged to and the emperor’s face were stamped on these coins.

It is an art because like any creative endeavor, one can run away with applying the skill to his life and perspective. It is like how one applies the skill of painting to create art. Thus, one can apply the skill of positive thinking to build a positive life. All of them have a persona that radiates strong positive energy.

  • Back-splash

    ccabinet
    21 Aug 2014 | 12:58 pm
    Let me start with full disclosure: I love back-splash and I have strong opinions concerning what works and what doesn’t. First let’s talk functionality. All the steam, heat and grease around a cook-top are not very friendly towards wallpaper or wall paint. It just makes sense to install something that withstands the humidity and is easy to clean. When considering materials, remember the more porous the tile, the more difficult it is to clean. This is one reason why solid glass back-splash has become so popular. It also looks amazing! Now for design. In my mind, the most important…
  • Fall is in the Air: Time to gather around the fire pit

    ccabinet
    14 Aug 2014 | 9:51 am
    Fire pits, or outdoor fireplaces, date back thousands of years. Originally nothing more than pits in the ground to control flames, they were especially popular with nomadic cultures. Today fire pits range from simple metal bowls to elaborate, illuminated structures of stone or brick. The American Society of Landscape Architects report that fire pits are the #1 requested design feature by far…and why not? They provide a hospitable, warm gathering place to enjoy conversation and a glass of wine well beyond Labor Day. In fact they can extend the use of your backyard to Thanksgiving…even in…

    Richard Baird
    19 Dec 2014 | 2:17 am
    Opinion by Richard Baird. Gras and Groves-Raines Architects are Edinburgh based architectural practices, and two branches of the same organisation. Gras explores experimental routes and works within commercial, public and private developments as well as exhibitions, while Groves-Raines Architects takes a more traditional approach, specialising in the conservation and restoration of existing buildings. Although their fields of expertise differ, both are bound by the shared values of a high quality holistic approach from design through to execution, and favour craftsmanship and fine detail.

    12 Dec 2014 | 3:45 am
    Cristina Bulat’s Unbutton Collection aims to meld Scandinavian design with the aesthetic of Pin-up culture. This might sound a little strange at first, but once you take a look at the pieces you see that it’s really quite whimsical. Available as bedside tables or as a sideboard, the tables will come in many different colors. The trapezoidal shape is reminiscent of that Pin-up-era aesthetic, moving toward a slightly mod feeling. The knobs are simple, round pops of color against the pale wood finish, and the contrast will draw attention from any corner of the room. While the pieces are…

    12 Dec 2014 | 3:13 am
    Over the years, Kato mastered the timelessly-feminine-Japanese-flavored look, and made it his signature one. And for the spring-summer 2015, he stays true to what he does best. Kato’s Beyond Elegance show kicked off with delicate creations in many shades of nude. Little white lace dresses and sheer hooded robes brought the spirit of youth and innocence. It wouldn’t be Kato if the clothes weren’t fairly adorned. Cherry-blossom-reminiscent prints, soft ruffles and strings of sparkly crystals garnished the tender attire.  But, as the show progressed, it was sayonara to the good girl…

  • The Psychologically Tense Portraits of Dino Valls

    Mary Luoma
    18 Dec 2014 | 12:13 am
    Dino Valls is a self-taught Spanish artist whose work is influenced by Italian Renaissance and Flemish art, as well as modernism. The way he frames his work reminds us of lofty and mysterious medieval religious art of years gone by, but he invests his pieces with modern psychological and symbolic slants. He is a skilful figurative painter whose subject matters – often young men and women – stare sullenly towards the spectator. When considering technique with which he has painted these figures, so clearly indebted to past masters, it is easy to believe that Valls is an artist stuck…

Of her work, Martinez says, “I attempt to articulate something in-between the freezing of time – that so often characterizes photography – and its relentless passing.” We can take these words with us as we look at two series’ of her work – Quantum Blink and The Weekend. In Quantum Blink, one moment in time is eerily projected on to another. The effect is not jarring…

    Earlier in 2014, acclaimed British photographer Shirley Baker passed, aged 82. She was a documentary photographer born in Salford, a truly working-class city in northern England whose urban plight was to inform most of her work for years to come. Like many street photographers of the 1960’s, she sought to capture the essence of working class life in deprived areas, where poverty was rife, brutality was a constant, and where rare moments of happiness were an absolute cause of celebration in an area of post-war England where many tried hard to just get by, scraping a living together in order…

    Mia Grevees
    15 Dec 2014 | 2:33 am
    Hyper-realist artists can often be found working on their canvases in busy city streets, where they attract an audience because of their optical illusions. Venezuelan artist Gustavo Silva Nunez produces the kind of awe-inspiring hyper-realistic art that sees passers-by stop in their tracks to figure out where the artist ends and the painting actually begins. This is because Nunez, like all hyper-realistic painters, creates an optical illusion whereby the subject matter of the painting – in Nunez’s case, mostly often swimmers – appears as though they’re emerging from the canvas…

    Xavier Boss can hardly contain his zeal for explaining why one model stock car propelled by an eight-gram canister of CO2 won its race against a heavier car driven by a four-gram canister. “Because it has more push,” exclaims the 11-year-old. “The one with the eight-gram force goes whoosh!” It may not rank with the seminal moments in physics, but ...

  • Designers Tackle Copyright & Intellectual Property Issues

    Terry Lee Stone
    17 Dec 2014 | 12:42 pm
    Designers face an increasingly complex landscape when it comes to copyright and intellectual property. When a single idea or concept can be expressed or utilized in dozens of different formats, platforms and mediums, how can creators control ownership and usage of their work? Even a simple idea like ownership can become complicated, when the work in question is not composed of atoms, but ideas.

    So anyone who read my article on tips for working from home will know that one of the things I struggle with is getting started, or rather getting up. I’m not a morning guy, I’ve tried it and it ain’t me. On the rare occasion I manage to drag myself to my computer at a reasonable hour I find it almost impossible to get started on a project and when I finally do, I’m sluggish and more than a bit crap. What little I do, I usually end up having to revise and I finish work when I normally would have done anyway. That being said, every now and again you hear the story of an…

    10 Jul 2014 | 7:20 am
    Trends and fashions are difficult to predict at the best of times, least of all with an industry constantly evolving and improving at such a rapid rate like digital design. But the continual increase in mobile and tablet usage helps pinpoint what areas will be improved, and which trends will continue to grow throughout 2014. The continued rise of the Z-Axis Simply put, the z-axis is the plain that exists between the x- and y-axis; in this context it describes the layers that sit above or below one another.

    Ages and ages and ages ago I used to work as Art Director for a music magazine, I think I got about eleven issues under my belt before I decided to leave to do graphic design full time. Every now and again (usually when I’m moving office) I uncover that stack of magazines I kept and have a quick flick through them. 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. When I was working on those first few issues, I didn’t really have any idea how a magazine worked in terms of design. I…

  • 8 stunning and subtle ceramic sculptures to make you feel relaxed

    Steph Guinan
    21 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Based near Ireland’s eastern shores in County Louth, ceramic sculptor Frances Lambe makes work that is quiet, subtle, and absolutely stunning. The forms are simple and refined, and the surfaces are patterned with delicate perforation. Lambe graduated from National College of Art and Design in Dublin and taught secondary school art courses before working on her artwork full-time. The artist explains the root of her visual investigations: “My interest in the sea underscores my work. The ebb and flow of the semi-diurnal tides map time. The interface between land and sea is ever changing.

    Photographer Tim Flach has a marvelous landing page for his website. As a photographer who focuses on animals, the page vividly speaks to the artist’s passion while capturing the viewer’s attention. Within the simple, white splash page, animals are shown walking across the screen as though the viewer is looking up at them—it’s what some would call a worm’s eye view. This unique perspective on capturing animals is seen throughout the photographer’s work. In Flach’s bio, he explains that he’s interested in the concept of anthropomorphism, the attribution of human…

    Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana have created an immersive art installation currently on view at the Swedish Contemporary Arts Museum. They gathered local wood and flax and compiled them to make towering “trees” indoors. Visitors to the museum can explore the minimal design forest, weaving through the forms. “We found the inspiration in nature,” said Humberto Campana. “The message we wanted to generate was bringing nature indoors. The forest taking its place back and turning tables.” The stark indoor gallery space appears to be an…

In his spare time, however, he posts crazy GIFs on his Tumblr, each of which is like an explosion of colors and wink-nudge fun. His pixel art GIFs are chock-full of signifiers of ’90s nostalgia, Nintendo video game characters, and pop culture references – basically the dreams of any Tumblr kid with a ’90s fetish. Manic and hyper-kinetic, the loops have so much going on that you may have trouble not staring at them for a long…

    In the summer of 2007 we launched a new Web site, coreldrawunleashed.com. It had a specific purpose and it had fulfilled that purpose by the end of 2008. At that time, we'd make a few changes to it but it mostly sat dormant. After six years of mostly hibernating, we decided to dust off this old site and give it a complete makeover.

    For someone who writes as much as me, having the right keyboard is very important. Of course each of us is different and there are different things we prefer in our perfect keyboard. I really have become dependent on an ergonomic keyboard and thus the Microsoft Natural Ergo Keyboard 4000 is still the perfect choice for me. At Amazon's current price of $24.99, it is hard to beat. Heck, it is so low I'm tempted to buy an extra one just in case mine fails in the future.

    Welcome to the Found & Foraged linky party! Phew you guys! I’ve finally completed all my Christmas shopping and with 5 days to spare. How are you fairing? Are you scrambling around like crazy, or are you cool, calm and collected? I still have to wrap but made it. This year I’ve felt really behind, and I’m unsure why. Maybe it’s because I was too focused on our New Year’s Eve partying? But I’ve made it unscathed and only slightly frazzled, and that’s all that matters.

    Hello my friends! Just popping in to let you know I’m over at This Silly Girl’s Life with a new cocktail recipe that is bound to brighten your New Years Eve! It’s called a Champagne Smash, and it originates from one of my favorite restaurants here in Chicago, Bavette’s Bar and Beouf. Champagne tends to be the beverage of choice when I’m out on the town, and one can’t argue with a little bubbly to start the night out right. Because champagne just doesn’t keep like wine, I don’t indulge much at home mainly because I’d never finish a bottle.

This is due in part because remodeling gives them the control to make their homes function exactly how they want. The strengthening of the housing market is fueling the remodeling industry. With all of this optimism in the housing market and the remodeling industry, there are certain design trends in kitchens that are expected to continue and increase in popularity in the…

    Many articles have been written about how to spot a bad client, and how to deal with them if you’re already working with one. Unfortunately, it seems that fewer words have been devoted to great clients, which are a big reason why we’re in the design business in the first place (and are able and willing to stay in it). Thinking about the great clients that I’ve had, here are seven things that most of them have in common: They ask good questions, and are interested in the process and in learning from our expertise.

    For years, I would go into sales meetings with nervous apprehension, not knowing what to say in order to convince clients that they should choose my company to design their new website or other marketing materials. My plan was to introduce myself, hand the client a business card and folder with some literature about our company, try to seem like a nice guy, and wait for questions, in the hopes that the client would respond favorably.  I wanted to be seen as an expert, but didn’t know how to make that happen. Fortunately, many clients did hire my company, and as my schedule filled up…

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

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

Add to that the fact that product competitors have almost the same features, so consumers just skim by the features, and look for something else.

    We often watch movies, rarely paying attention to the color symbolism depicted in them. But if you study the history of movies, you will find that all great directors have consciously used color symbolism and psychology to effectively communicate with their audiences. But first: a brief history of the use of colors in films. In the beginning, color in films was only applied using manual tinting. This was a time consuming and expensive project where every object in the scene had to be tinted manually. The best examples of earliest films using hand tinting in this manner include the The Great…
