    I name all of my animals after Soviet space dogs, so I’d name my pet mammoth Ryzhik, which means ginger or red-haired, because I think, without having properly researched it, that mammoths were red-haired. I have also chosen Ryzhik, as it seems fairly easy to pronounce compared to other names of Soviet space dogs, like Zvyozdochka or Zamena ischeznuvshemu Boliku.

    Sigmund.

    In high school psych class I realized that ‘sigmund’ at one point would have had to be a fairly common/normal name for the Freuds to choose it for their kidlet. As would have ‘adolf’ and ‘cleopatra’. Now you just can’t name a kid any of these things without attaching some sort of stigma (good or bad). Wierd, right?

    Frankly, I think its an endearing name.

  • The winner as picked by Troy over at MAMMOTH COLLECTION:

    ANDREW P: I shall name him, Kingsley. I will make him a monocle out of a window. He will drink aged scotch gallons at a time.

    Largely due to the monocle out of a window… that made me chuckle, plus the aged scotch.. mmm.. also let’s be real, Kingsley seems like a good name for a mammoth, no?

    Congrats Andrew, you’ve got mail!

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.
