Water Paintings -> Eric Zener

I find these oil on canvas ‘water’ paintings by Eric Zener to be a great pleasure to take in. They really capture the essence of a warm, sunny, summer swim session, something that I rarely experience these days living in Seattle, and truly miss. Eric Zener’s ability to render light, motion and all the distortion […]

Media Temple -> Client Spotlight: Surfrider Foundation

(mt) Client Showcase: The Surfrider Foundation from (mt) Media Temple on Vimeo.
Media Temple has been busy creating some really nice ‘client spotlight’ videos (above example: Surfrider Foundation), celebrating their unique partnerships and also creating some nice brand equity for themselves. Pretty smart way of reminding us all that (mt) really is the ‘cool kid’ hosting […]

City Symphonies -> Westminster

City Symphonies – Westminster from Mark McKeague on Vimeo.
Notes from Vimeo:
“Can the city become a symphony? Electric cars are increasingly using synthesised sounds in order to mimic the traditional noise of the internal combustion engine. I explore an alternative in which the sound that the cars generate changes according to its relationship to other road […]

Grove + MapleXO -> iPhone SkateBack

Grove + MapleXO iPhone SkateBack from Grove on Vimeo.
I bought a Grove Made Bamboo iPhone case last year and I must say that it’s super durable and definitely an eye-catcher. People constantly ask me where I got it and want to know what it’s made from. I may have to get one of these Skatebacks […]

Starry Night -> Vincent van Dominogh

Someone kept their eyes open in color theory class. This is a very impressive domino rendition of Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night, captured as an upbeat timelapse. Nicely done.
Notes from YouTube:
“I recreated Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” from just over 7,000 dominos. The second attempt took about 11 hours total to build.
The first attempt failed, […]

Tumblr Archive -> Looking Back

This is literally a three month ‘snapshot’ of my life, via my Tumblr mobile photo blog. I consider my photo habit a ‘healthy distraction’. I like to look back at the months that have slipped away, and re-visit some of the moments that probably passed me by too quickly. Then again, don’t they all?

Thoughts -> Brand

In most cases I refrain from using my blog as a vehicle to evangelize my own ideas or thoughts on things. Oh, what the hell. You can quote me on this one.

Sharp AQUOS -> Android Smartphone

Sharp AQUOS Android Smartphone – Feel UX from frog on Vimeo.
Overall this looks like a promising new design coming from Frog + Sharp AQUOS for Android. I like the dashboard and the ability to add breakers to help organize different types of apps or content. There seem to be some little bits of hidden functionality that […]

octofeed -> clean design Facebook timeline

This is what my Facebook timeline looks like when under the influence of ‘octofeed’. Just log into octofeed.com with your Facebook password and just like that, your timeline and newsfeed will render with this slick design. It’s actually pretty nice, inspiring even. Makes you wonder why Facebook has yet to implement custom themes into the […]

Celebrate Pratt Institute -> 125th Anniversary

Celebrate Pratt’s 125th Anniversary from Pratt Institute on Vimeo.
I am particularly enthusiastic and appreciative of my alma mater, the newly-turned 125-year-old Pratt Institute. My experience at Pratt will always bring to mind the value of a solid foundation, the true understanding of what good design is, and what good design is capable of. I received […]

A Walk in Nature -> NotWorkingFilms

Great pace and energy, loaded with interesting moments captured out and about in nature with a 7D. Love the post effects processing, subtle reverse playback effects and overall aesthetic. Have a look.
Notes from Vimeo:
“After driving for about 5000km we felt the need to slow down a bit and to continue our journey on foot.
This short […]

If you’re into cycling and love custom designs, you should check out Düsseldorf, Germany based custom online bicycle shop called ‘My Own Bike’. The overall experience is super clean and fun to experiment/play with. Judging from the physical store photos, it looks right on brand with the online experience.

Mister Rogers Remixed -> Garden of Your Mind

This is an absolutely brilliant remix by Symphony of Science’s John Boswell for PBS. Especially for those who grew up with Mr. Rogers, we may look back and chuckle, but you cannot deny the power of his positive messages, delivered with that smooth, caring, lyrical style that only he could flow. haha.
