    Ohhhh I want it! I just got a new laptop and have to start my sticker collection again! I ripped my Jagermeister sticker to bits trying to transfer it over! 😥

    A booooooom sticker would be a zillion times cooler than a jager one!

  • what do we win?

    • a thick envelope of booooooom stickers! (two prizes)

  • Just two winners? Good lawd!!! How ’bout I give you fiddy cents and you put one sticker and two used sticker backs in my hand?

  • gradfilm? Can we see it?

  • ya i just might put it online

  • Any chance of a competition I can enter that doesn’t involve Facebook? I don’t have that and though the pull of a Booooooom sticker is strong I won’t be joining any time… or how about a swap-shop? Just think of all the radness you’d receive in the post. I’ll start you off by sending you beans; you can send me send a sticker…
    Chris Micro- What you got to swap?

  • stickers are going to be available here pretty soon, keep an eye out.

  • i got stickers. mostly promo stickers I’ve made for myself and/or my hip-hop crew. and stamps. LOL. Oh and buttons. I’ll post’em on my site if people really want to swap. hehe.

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.
