All Things Ordinary / Zine

A great little photo zine called All Things Ordinary just showed up on my doorstep. Issue #1 of this LA-based publication features work by many photographers I’ve mentioned before: Bryan Schutmaat, Ye Rin Mok, Nicholas Haggard, Eleanor Hardwick, and my friend Erin Loechner (Design For Mankind)!

  • I bought this and hasten to add I was rather disappointed, however if pretty girls taking pictures of themselves or their pretty mates lying on beds is yr bag, you won’t be disappointed.
    Not to say it didn’t have its gems, but they were photographs I’d already seen by my friends on flickr.
    Nothing else in it really grabbed me but $13 isn’t a great deal, so why not.

    • well, the zine IS called ‘all things ordinary’….

      (personally/actually, i’m pretty into the spread in the 4th image posted here.)

  • I saw this on creative output a while ago, looks like a great mag !

  • g

    i have a copy of this zine myself and i think it’s amazing. the theme seems very personal. i love it. good look on this one booooooom!

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.
