Onwards by James Jarvis

Lovin’ this animation by James Jarvis. Directed by Richard Kenworthy, and music courtesy of Caribou (“Crayon” was a great choice). Nike did sponsor this piece but I am enjoying this trend of really unobtrusive marketing.

    This completely blew me away.. I don’t think I can remember when an animation online has seriously captured so much of my attention.

    I really enjoyed the way he did the shading of the runner.. especially coming down that hill, it really surprised me.

    So simple and basic with it’s colour, but so much depth to it – the music added another dimensions.

    I agree if sponsors are going to support this kind of advertising, i’m all for it. I would love to find some type of online directory showcasing all sorts of advertising campagins, but in every language all countries, for the same products, organized by date.. I’m sure there are a lot more of these hidden gems out there.

    Anyways thanks for finding this!

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.
