Presenting the art of Li Wei (sorry if this is old news for some, I’m a little late on this guy). Wei’s photos are just incredible. He doesn’t just comp these together in photoshop – he goes to the trouble of setting up wires and arranging mirrors to create these amazing pieces. More photos after the jump (including one that will give you a little insight into the way he’s creating the illusions).
One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.
I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.
Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.
I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.
Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.
At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).
Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
