  • Wow. These are so beautiful. Whimsical almost.

    Fantastic work.

  • A really nice push and pull of line work and experimental textures.

  • Love it! Fiona uses paint in so many different ways…That really gives a lot of character and depth to her work.

  • Yes, I just love these abstracts which evoke nature and whimsy. The color choices make me think of rainy days in Oregon—gray sky with a forest of greens.

  • kevin

    Fiona Ackerman your work is scrumptious and mouth watering. It appears to be watercolor although the mention here is that these are paintings. Sturdy like painting and delicate like watercolor is a nice mixture, whatever the case may be it’s a real pleasure to see your work sparkling and refreshing, gentle and at the same time rugged. It reminds me of the lollipops of my childhood and the frozen icies of my long ago childhood summers. I am reminded remotely of Murakami who has that same kind of color and youthful beauty in his work, both of you are in good company with each other. A world of success to you Fiona!

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.
