Best Magazine Cover of 2009

I am a bit late posting this but I wanted to mention that my pick for best magazine cover in 2009 was Geoff McFetridge’s artwork for Huck Magazine and Little White Lies. I believe this is the first time something like this has been executed by two different magazines (I could be wrong).

    Amazing… And the fact the both magazines grounding is in so very different subject matters makes it even better. The artwork is so so clever… I love it too!

  • How great! Glad to see that things like this happen.

  • Love it. I love when something wakes you up in a completely new “Oh look at that” way.

  • thos are nice prints to hang , sweet

  • Does anybody know what the sans-serif typeface used on the front cover and throughout Huck is?

    Thanks,

    Nathan

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.
