  • the flame on the match is brilliant

  • Without words

  • Niko

    That was so cool, I was transported back to a tom and jerry esque world. One thing that was so brilliant about that is everything! seemed to be analog with no effects work. The some of the flames were hands! anyone catch that?

  • Okay that was awesome! My favorite part was the sandwich and the magnifying glass! Soo good!

  • limitless imagination. yup the the partying germs were awesome

  • Magda

    I really loved the match because they whole process was self initiated. It was as if someone decided, “Since I am lighting my cigarette, I might as well set everything else ablaze too!”

  • Mina

    sooooooo goooooood!

  • If you happen to be in Shoreditch, London – go to Jaguar Shoes on the high street, there’s a whole installation to go with this video – many of the props fill the place, stuck to the walls and the ceilings, it’s brilliant.

    The hot mulled Cider is a winner too!

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.
