Do Not Leave Unattended!

Jude over at Run 4ist Run and I are definitely on the same page! Jude has started a great little collaborative project called “Do Not Leave Unattended“. The project is about sharing images, insights, stories, quotes, anything to inspire others (kinda like here!), and it’s open to anyone. It’s as simple as signing up and a notebook is sent to you. Then you have two weeks to draw, collage, paint, write something, or paste in photos. After your little piece is complete you’re in charge of passing the notebook onto someone else you know.

Krissy from Paper Schmaper was the first to go! Love the Mark Twain quote: “If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter”. This is what it’s about people! Booooooom Project #3 is about to launch as well so stay tuned!

Go sign up now! Do Not Leave Unattended!

  • Thanks Jeff 🙂
    Can’t wait to see what project #3 is!

    Beautiful idea,
    I am all over this one.

  • yes! such a great idea – i hope people take photos or scan in their pages i want to kinda see things as they go along.

  • Jeff – part of the deal is to scan your page and email it to Jude before you send it off, so there’s record of what people are saying.. Just incase the book gets lost!

  • I am so on the list.

  • Mitch

    This has got me geeked to say the least.

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

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 — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

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.
