Just Us / Design Collective

Just Us is a collective created by students at Plymouth College of Art as a way of showcasing design students’ work from all over the UK. Great idea, and great work too!

    Some really innovative designs!

  • I spent a good 5 minutes trying to see where the “Just Us” was in the 3rd picture but then I scrolled down and realized that they don’t all say it….. oh geez

  • I def thought it was one of those secret picture things that were super cool in elementary school. I even crossed my eyes and moved my head back and forth from the screen.

    • that’s how i view all the pictures on this site haha

      its funny how similar that image looks to the postcard showing in the sidebar

  • You’re right! You should make a postcard like that, that secretly says something like I thought it did.

  • That absolutely blew my mind!!! I almost want to make it my background if I didn’t think I would have a seizure or not get any work done. How is that possible? It doesn’t even look like there’s any change of direction? By the way I applaud you, that is the first secret word picture I’ve ever actually seen what it’s supposed to say. I want my snowboard to have that on it!

  • so

    oh geez these are so sick! i want a print if they’re not too expensive.. gonna go check their website out now haha

    • so

      never mind, too expensive :’)

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


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


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.
