Intention -> Designed By Apple

How do we want people to feel? Don’t confuse convenience with joy, or, abundance with choice… good design takes time… a nice thought provoking piece of branding coming from Apple. The motion graphics alone are worth checking out.

Neatly Organized -> Jim Golden

Jim Golden has taken the “things organized neatly” photography trend to a heightened artistic level with his still life series, that can be found on his portfolio site. He not only has his subject matter and styling dialed in, I find his spatial sensibilities to be absolutely pristine. Which, plucks at the heartstrings of my inner […]

Mini Ghettoblaster -> Mini Schweiz

I dig this super extra large “mini” ghettoblaster promo for the International Radio Festival in Zurich featured by Mini Schweiz. Taking Papercraft to the extreme, from the photos on it’s Behance page, you can see it brings some serious character to the surrounding environment that it’s placed in.

The New MySpace -> Preview

The new Myspace from Myspace on Vimeo.
Oh, this should be interesting. Even though Myspace has been parked in cyberspace, seemingly in a perpetual lull for some time now… I have noticed some interesting and smart design enhancements taking place the last couple of years, making me wonder what was in store for it’s future. For […]

Hard Graft -> Site Design

Hard Graft, the creator of fine Italian handmade leather goods, has a pretty nifty “eComm” site. A couple of notable features: the magnificent product photos, the super-duper dynamic product filtering (fun to play with, srsly), and the respectful attention paid to clarity and the simple telling of the product’s story. They seem to have the […]

IDEO + Food -> Genius Curry Crawl

IDEO + Food Genius Curry Crawl from IDEO on Vimeo.
Fun concept coming from the clever minds at IDEO, taking the idea of “food truck” to the next level. Kind of a roaming, tweeting, eating, ratings and reviews, curry killing, operation. Have a look.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

IKEA UPPLEVA -> Smart TV & Sound System

5 years from now we’ll be saying “remember when all of our home electronics had cables sprawling all over the place?”. Nice to see IKEA taking the lead on this.
Notes from YouTube Page:
“IKEA introduces UPPLEVA, a completely new range that integrates smart TV and sound system with furniture. UPPLEVA brings beauty and functionality to the […]

Jonathan Levine Gallery -> Delusional

Delusional: The Story of the Jonathan LeVine Gallery from weholden on Vimeo.
This is one book I’ll be excited to add to my reading list this Spring. Srsly, can’t wait to read it…
Notes from Vimeo:
“Widely revered as the “artists’ gallerist,” Jonathan LeVine has nourished a much needed alternative viewpoint within the stilted New York art market. […]

REI -> Flash 62 Pack 360° Visualizer

It’s tough trying to select a highly technical piece of outdoor gear online. Especially a heavy-duty pack designed specifically to carry even more technical gear, there’s a lot to consider and it almost becomes impossible to make a decision without seeing it up close and in-person. That’s why I really dig REI’s smart ‘Flash 62 […]
