  • Been seeing alot of rainbow colors used on black lately. Just got a vendors card with a similar color scheme.

    Wait, maybe that’s only twice…

  • Jeff thank you for putting so much time and effort into making Tangents happen. Great work! I had an awesome time! -tys

  • jeff, thank you for putting on a successful show.
    you and reid should be proud of yourselves.
    thank you for the amazing opportunity.

  • EmilyChou

    thanks for such a great show jeff! It was a real treat. Not to mention sick music.

  • Graeme

    Congrats to everyone involved in the show last night. Espesh Jeff and Reid.
    Really feeling the work by Ramsey. Has a Kandinsky-esque feel to it.
    Loved the purple cream colour field by Jennilee (I think she said it was a puddle?)
    Thankful to Hamada to get me in front of Kenichi’s work. Beautiful.
    Pretty Blamo! at Fortune after too. A good night.

  • glad you came out and had fun Graeme! definitely see some Kandinsky in the Ramsey drawings – it was also really cool to see probably 40% of a crowd that i’d never seen at other art shows come out to it

    packed house, maybe a little too packed – there was a good hour or so where i couldn’t walk from one end to the other.

  • victoria

    really wanted to go to that.
    instead i had my wisdom teeth removed.
    joy.

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.
