  • this project is all about love of any type!

  • THIS PROJECT IS LOVE.

  • Absolutely!!! So gorgeous! I love it!

  • these are so great : )
    already anticipating for the next ones to see what pops up

  • I am so happy that these are continueing…I really love reading all of them. I want new ones everyday…such a happy thing to read in the morning.

  • Im glad you guys are enjoying the project as much as me and Erin are! There are tons more to be posted and maybe it might be cool to have this as an on-going thing – the response has really been overwhelming.

  • guys…….THIS IS THERAPY !! HEALTHY ONE!

    I FEEL STRONGER with just this in my face in the morning.

    I vote for doing this together.

    It’s like…OUR COMMON WAY TO CALL THE HAPPINNES.

    Priceless.

  • jeff & erin – how about just keep going until people run out or encouraging words, which will likely be a long, long time ;)? encouragement is contagious!

  • haha if i can figure out a way to automate it with like flash or something rather than having to lay them all out randomly in photoshop i would love to see this as an on-going thing…

  • Findlay D

    Wow! I can’t believe how good I feel right now! This is hands up in the air, the coolest project on Earth!

    Cheers Jeff & Erin from New Zealand with Love! BOOOOOOOM

    Thanks for acknowledging my existence.

  • ant

    Thanks booooooom & design for mankind! this is wayyyy toooo amazing!!!!

  • Rodrigo

    If you do find a way of making the process a bit more automatic, please keep the “one post with a lot of new messages!” format, since instant gratification in this case is not as cool as coming in to read a looooot of cool messages.

    Also if you handmade it in photoshop it’s almost like you handmade them in paper. It adds that extra bit of dedication.

    What I mean is, I can see how this can get tedious and time consuming but if you find a way of making it automatic don’t make it a vending machine of emotions!

  • great feedback Rodrigo – yes, the reason i wanted to lay them out (albeit sometimes really randomly) in Photoshop is to make them feel a little more unique and i agree about the feeling of seeing a flood of new ones rather than the “instant gratification” of seeing one new one at a time.

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.
