Nike 6.0 -> Tunnel Jam 2009

The ‘Nike 6.0 Tunnel Jam’ took place in Southern England. What makes it so special is the tunnel itself. The banks, launch ramps, quarter pipes and whatever they are calling that one amazing air-bridge type structure all dump you onto the brick cylindrical tunnel walls, making for a BMX trick riding smorgasbord. It’s pretty unreal […]

Eighthourday -> Etsy Shop Launch

Spread the word! Super talented design duo Katie Kirk and Nathan Strandberg of Minneapolis based design studio ‘eighthourday’ have opened their Etsy storefront. They’ve gone and hooked themselves up with some kind of high-tech screen printing gadgetry and are most likely squidgy’ing out some sweet design madness at this very moment. Katie and Nate have […]

'Museumnacht' in Amsterdam -> Site Design

If you should be lucky enough to be in Amsterdam this Fall you should try to take part in the 42 museum collaboration called ‘museumnacht‘. I won’t be in Amsterdam anytime soon but I am a huge fan of their website design, which is the reason for this post. The typography, overall layout and color […]

We Have Band/You Came Out -> Midweek Music Bump

Today’s 29th ‘Midweek Music Bump‘ is by UK band ‘We Have Band’ called ‘You Came Out’. Shot over 2 days and stop frame animated from 4,816 still images. Yes, that means no video at all. Check out the Flickr link below to see all the stills. Pretty insane. The track itself is a nice peppy […]

Doze Green -> "Extra Demensional"

Originally East Coast now West Coast artist Doze Green tells it like it is in this short interview by Walrus TV. He speaks on being “Extra Dimensional” and free from becoming just another ‘add-on’ to current trends, making your own way and “having balls”. All good advice if you plan to follow your heart and […]

'Editors' -> Band Hacks Google Street View

I took notice of this campaign on the Creative’s website last week. At first I was kind of feeling underwhelmed, but after letting the idea render in my head for a while I’ve decided it is a pretty innovative digital marketing approach even if there are very few exposures to be had from it. […]

Organic Grid -> Visual Exploration

Organic Grid is a “design consultancy dedicated to creating innovative identity and design systems with an unyielding passion to create the extraordinary” according to creator Michael Mcdonald. The site is a pleasure to navigate and the over all design is very fluid and well executed. There are even some interesting patterns and UI within that […]

Andreas Lutz -> Motion Navigation for Web

I’ve seen many hints of this technology coming to life and I’m excited to check this out. Basically it’s voice and motion based navigation for the web via your pre-existing computer mic, webcam and browser. Wouldn’t it be nice to sit in front of your home computer, say “… 36hr forecast” and have the computer […]

Oh Yeah Studio -> Art/Design

Above are just a few great examples of the illustrative design that ‘Oh Yeah Studio’ has been producing. ‘Oh Yeah Studio’ is Norway based design duo Christina and Hans Christian. I love the concept of their portfolio site where they simply state “We really like to do stuff after dinner. All the work on this […]

10/GUI -> Desktop Touchscreen

My good friend sent me this link the other day because he knows how concerned I am about the whole messy touch screen dilemma that many of us deal with these days. I always carry around at least a couple little sunglasses micro-fiber cloths for my iPhone and my camera. I have often wondered how […]

Night Photography -> James Schneider Jr.

I’ve been having a lot of fun taking these night exposures lately, and felt that I had enough of a collection at this point to share a few of them here on CircuitBreaks. I currently live in Minneapolis where there is no shortage of picturesque oak tree lined streets and lakes, even in the metro […]

The Daily Aphorism -> The School of Life

The above is today’s daily aphorism from Enabled by St.Lukes and the School of Life, this daily aphorism destination is simple and well designed. You can create your own aphorisms as well as print out your favorites from their collection. Pretty fun, I could see this experience to twitter and mobile texts as well.
Visit […]

Jared Souney -> iPhone Photos

Is the iPhone the new Lomo? That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but I’m really feeling the low-quality grain and overall effect coming from the iPhone camera these days. Especially the stuff coming from Portland based photographer Jared Souny’s iPhone. I have been noticing his shots appearing on his blog lately and have […]

MusicVision -> Pheonix

I enjoy finding out about people’s top music lists, whether their an artist, musician or a good friend. It can be very revealing. The above documentary by Guillaume Delaperriere called “MUSICVISION PHOENIX is twenty tracks that changed our lives”, features members Thomas Mars, Deck d’Arcy, Laurent Brancowitz, Christian Mazzalai from the band Phoenix. Makes for […]

iBend -> Funky iPhone Stand

The iPhone has brought about yet another interesting accesory to the market, this time in the form of a simple viewing stand called the ‘iBend’. The stand collapses simply for maximum portability and is dressed graphically by well known artists like Joshua Davis and Bartalos. Fun product for iPhone lovers + cool gift for under […]
