Snow White Decal


Disney is awesome (well at least my narrow view of them). So are Macs. The perfect combination.


There are a few different renditions on etsy. And I will be purchasing one soon.

Random Inspiration











I will be doing this a little more often now. There is too much good design out there to not have posts like this.

Letterpress is resurfacing. Or has been for a while. Check out this video about Hatch Show Print.

Glow In The Dark



Standing out these days is often hard to do. It's a little easier if you glow in the dark. Que Houxo is breaking ground with his neon black light paintings. Some of them transform into completely different works of art in different forms of light. Pretty cool, eh? Apartment Therapy loves him. Design You Trust loves him. And truthfully, so do I.

Transformations



Looking through your accessories you realize that you always wear the same ones. Changing the look of your outfit requires changing your accessories. The problem is that you don't want to buy a million different products for a few different looks. Good thing Gemma Redux created the Omne Necklace. With the use of many different chains and a really cool magnet, possibilities are endess.

Hiding Underwater




I always wonder what it would be like if everyday places got flooded with water. Here is a glance at what things might look like.

Similarities



My two favorite opening title sequences have many similarities. Both use vector graphics mixed with other media, men in suits, and a very retro feel. Mad Men and Casino Royale. Some very serious eye candy.

T-Shirts Are Evil

Well they are. Ugly, ill-fitting, white. Makes me shudder just thinking about it. There are exceptions, though. Like this one. Minimalist. Modern. Mind-blowing.

Romanticizing Angles

Lines, angles, and geometric patterns can be harsh, masculine, and cold. But Kenzo's Spring 2010 RTW Collection softened all of the aforementioned characteristics using draping, assymetry, flowing fabrics, and overlapping. 





Personally, I think some of the most beautiful designs include the integration of both feminine and masculine styles. Inspired by opposites, these designs both can instigate conflict and inspire unity inside the mind. Our world is full of opposites, and some of the best things come from bringing them together.

Can you tell me how to get...

How to get to Sesame Street? Ah, the classic theme song from my favorite childhood show. Sesame is celebrating it's 40th birthday this week. 

Here are a few of my favorite videos. What are some of your favorite blasts from the past?

Stuck

Sometimes you just can't think anymore. You are tired, distracted, sick, busy, or even just bored. Then at the worst possible time, you are required to come up with some genius thought. It could be for art, writing, or even just creative ideas for your "everyday" job. The point is, you're stuck. Thinking outside the box is obviously not happening right now. It is at this point that you should go to this site
Yay!Everyday calls it the magic 8 ball for designers. I think it extends its reach beyond designers. Anyone can give it a try. And what if you don't like what you get? Just hit the reset button and start getting unstuck.
