OK, so this app? Makes me want to go out and buy an Ipad RIGHT.THIS.MINUTE.
Why? Because deep down inside I’m a repressed designer. The ideas are there, I have deep longings on being able to communicate in a visual way but I simply do not have the mad skilz, my friends. I think that’s why I’ve done the work I’ve done and still do.
Because if I can’t be a designer, I sure as heck am going to be out there supporting really good design in whatever way I can.
Anyway, I just needed to share because this Paper app seems pretty mind blowing so far. Maybe I can even pretend to make pretty visual sketch notes.
Could the solution to making mundane furniture design less mundane, simply be adding fabulous legs? This Swedish company called Prettypegs definitely makes a good case for it.
Because let’s face it, at some point in our lives we will all live with IKEA furniture and this company gives you the option to add a bit of whimsy to an otherwise mass market look. What a smart and simple solution!
I’ve been meaning to write about this for awhile. I came across this wonderful visual sketch note by Craighton Berman in the summer time. I was at a point where I was feeling really creatively stunted. I am not a designer by any means but my job does require me to think creatively.
Surprisingly, I usually find my mojo from doing something completely unrelated to the job at hand. I think there’s something to be said about getting out of one’s headspace if you feel kind of stuck and taking a leap into another. Anyway, I loved the idea of visually sketching out talks really inspiring.
I went out the next day and bought myself a new moleskin and started listening to lots of interesting lectures online, mainly TEDtalks and Creative Mornings. (God, I love the Internet!) I found it really helped me get out of my funk. Needless to say, my sketches look nothing like this, more type and highlighted words but I highly recommend trying this out if you ever feel creatively stuck.
What an incredibly interesting project, a blending of old technology with new surroundings— according to the site “This video is a part of a pinhole movie project based on the principle of the Camera Obscura. An apartment is completely darkened. A hole is made in a window, letting lights from outside coming in. Projections are taking place everywhere inside.”
Not that snowboarding isn’t an art unto itself but this incredible movie shot by fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton with pro snowboarder William Hughes, in an LED laden suit really captures the beauty of the sport.
