    I love these photos. It’s like a simpler way of life almost that we often forget about in today’s society.

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon


Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture.

We recently put out an open call to be our official Booooooom correspondent at this year’s Barcelona Design Week. We’re happy to announce that we’re sending one of our readers, Cory Gibbons, to Spain to attend the event.

Barcelona Design Centre’s annual Barcelona Design Week runs from June 2-12 this year. The event brings together creative professionals and businesses from around the world to share ideas, trends and knowledge about a variety of topics — offering over 70 different activities ranging from workshops and roundtables to tours and art exhibitions.

This year’s lineup of speakers includes Brett Wickens (of design studio Ammunition) and Alice Rawsthorn (who writes about design for International New York Times and frieze) kicking off the opening conference on June 2nd. June 6th to 8th marks the return of the Design is Future “congresstival”, which involves 3 days of 15 speakers discussing success stories and new approaches to design, specifically focused on improving people’s lives and the world around us.
