The year is far from over but that hasn’t stopped Logo Lounge from posting its 2013′s Trends for Logos. Utterly fascinating to see what’s trending! Still partial to the linecraft logos. Probably my favorite.
Google has done it again folks. Google Trends is a real-time, global trends list. I want to buy a LCD screen, embed it in my desk and have it on at all times. I will call it the Relevant-o-Meter.
It isn’t often that I have the need to print photos but when I do, its always a nightmare. On the one hand, you have services like Walgreens syncing with Instagram which is nice and convenient but I cant speak to their quality. On the other hand you have a slew of ATM-style places in Target and Costco that are tricky to use. So it was when I found out about Print Studio, who also run Printstagram, that prints your photos on non-glossy stock (finally!). Gotta remember these guys.
I think I discovered UI / UX designer Aaron Shekey through Designer News but either way, his albeit sparse website is definitely worth a look. One of his 2 projects is a almost-live app from Adobe (where he is a designer) called Reflow that promises to be a dead-simple WYSIWYG editor for creative responsive sites. Not like Muse, supposedly and it should produce code that’s not a total nightmare. It’s a tall order but I am intrigued nonetheless.
Too bad I don’t have Creative Cloud to get it though…
I don’t quite understand Shape SF but maybe that’s a good thing (and what they want?). They seem to be industrial designers but who’s portfolio also has work that just show creative thought and problem solving. Anyway, their so-called Field Bike is massively attractive. The details like the quarter bar-end stoppers, the cork stoppers and the wood lathe front rack. Very, very nice.
I don’t know what this is, but I do know that anything Universal Everything touches is artsy-gold. So, sit back (relax?) and watch this mythical figure create stunning light trails in what looks like a airport lobby.
