Simen Johan -> Photography

Artist Simen Johan was born in Kirkenes, Norway, and eventually made his way to New York city to study fine art at the School of Visual Arts. His dark but beautiful photographic work consists of hyper realistic scenes of live and taxidermied animal life that is often composited over a dramatic landscape. In short, the […]

Retro Fonts -> Cassannet and Metropolis

I’ve seen a resurgence of some beautifully designed retro art deco fonts lately. Above are a couple that I’ve really taken a liking to, Cassannet (by Josip Kelava) & Metropolis (by atipo.es). They maintain a great classic quality while also feeling nice and fresh. Both terrific fonts for designers who are looking to shake it […]

21 Helmets Art Show -> Portland, Oregon

21 artists come together to show off their amazing helmet designs at a Portland art gallery, all supported by classic motorcycle helmet company BELL. Love to see a company take notice and place a spotlight on their customer’s passions. Makes for an entertaining view.

L.E.D. Surfer -> Jacob Sutton

This video is pretty hot right now all over the internets, for good reason. It’s an amazing effect and very well documented. It must be a complete trip to experience this in first person. Have a look.

Martin Klimas -> Porcelain Figurines

These amazingly precise photos by German photographer Martin Klimas are absolutely brilliant to take in. Dropped from 3 meters, the porcelain figures are captured in mid explosion creating an effect that is rarely seen by the human eye in such detail. Super inspiring to those who love and appreciate sophisticated photography technique. Spotted -> @catoosha!

Hopefully effortlessly, and with some kind […]

Delaney Allen -> Photography

The photography of Portland, Oregon based Delaney Allen is brilliant. Fantastic cloudscapes, rogue waves, mundane objects in extraordinary environments and even still moments that pull at one’s emotional heartstrings. It’s all there.

Audience App -> Google Analytics

I recently purchased this nice new Google analytics visualizer called ‘Audience’ for 99¢ in the appstore. It’s well designed and there are some nice color transitions that occur while looking over your data. Kind of refreshing in comparison to all of the other less designed options that are available.

The Derelicts (ICON) -> eGarage

The Derelicts a short film by eGarage from eGarage on Vimeo.
A friend at work passed this well captured and well told documentary vid along to me this morning. The man behind ICON, modern engineeering, classic purposeful design, discusses his love for the “derelict style”. Love the description “time burned, natural finish and patina”.

Aurora 2012 -> Christian Mülhauser

Aurora 2012 from Christian Mülhauser on Vimeo.
I have to admit, there have been so many brilliant photos and videos of the northern lights lately that I have kind of become a bit desensitized to them. However, this well captured footage by Christian Mülhauser is a good one to check out. Side note: the music is […]

Argijale -> Flickr Photostream

One way to go about capturing a strong image is to be in an interesting place to begin with. I really enjoy Argijale’s Flickr photostream because he seems to constantly immerse himself in places and situations that make for interesting photography.

PRIME Burger -> thismustbetheplace

PRIME from thismustbetheplace on Vimeo.
This beautifully captured short documentary left me feeling bit home sick for NYC, and also a lot hungry for a good ol’ fashioned burger. Well worth the view.
Notes from Vimeo:
“Prime Burger Restaurant, in Midtown Manhattan. For many of the guys that work here, the restaurant is like a second home – […]

Society6.com -> JHSINDESIGN

This past week I decided to check out the Society6 artist’s community/storefront. I have been shopping around for an online print and frame service for some of my photography anyway, so I decided, why not try a service that also connects artists together, similar to how the Blurb DIY book service does? So far, I […]
