  • yep… looks cold!

  • Ah. Kingston. Them’s my old stomping grounds. Did you stop by the Wolfe Island Bakery, perchance? Their butter tarts are, in a word, divine.

    • not this time but i have been by there before! i did eat at Golden Rooster as much as possible though! love that place!

  • :O you were in Kingston!? it would’ve been so cool if you had the chance to stop by Queen’s!! i’m quite certain a lot of ppl here love your website, haha.

    • i was actually at Queens (in the ARC) almost everyday! my sister is doing her doctorate there

  • ahh no way, i go to queens and LOVE this website!

    • i love that my mouse just became a cat on your site. what program are you in??

  • This made me miss Kingston so so so much. I did my BFA there and now I live in a very warm island, but the cold looks so heart warming. Love your website, I check it daily and thank you for keeping my head moving forward with color and beautiful images.

    • cheers justin!

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.
