Fortune Sound Club

This Wednesday is the grand opening of my friend Garret’s new club, Fortune Sound – and he wanted me to invite you all! RSVP here with your full name and ‘GRAND OPENING’. 147 East Pender. Chinatown. 9pm.

Things you should know:

1. It’s Vancouver’s only club built for sound, boasting a $250,000 sound system, one of the biggest in North America.

2. Shepard Fairey has an amazing 60 ft installation going all the way up the stairs (the widest he’s ever made).

3. My friend Kenta Goto (Brknhome) and Rick Klotz (Freshjive) are designing crazy private rooms at the back of the club.

4. There will be a Booooooom party here in the future.

See photos below.

Fortune Sound Club has been open for the past couple weeks unofficially, and it really is one of the few fun clubs in town (that’s me in the red waiting for Keys N Krates to start).

Hope to see you there Wednesday! (It’s gonna be CRAZY!)

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.
