Ivan Puig

“Hasta Las Narices” a sculpture by Ivan Puig.

I believe the literal translation is “to be up to the nostrils” in other words “to be fed up with”.

  • really amazing, you can just feel it sinking!
    Would love to see it for real (and I’ll probably revisit the work afterwards, and wonder if it hasn’t sunk deeper 🙂 )

  • Is the floor solid or is the entire room filled up with liquid?

  • i think the floor is solid… very cool

  • lapetitefaon

    wow, this is strangely beautiful, would love to see it in person!

    Liquid filled rooms. Sounds neat-O.

  • this reminds me of the cars covered in vines and nature from the real goods solar center in hopland, ca!

    i think the floor is solid but glossed for the reflection and he just sliced the car and place it there. it’s pretty freakin cool

  • brilliant idea, insanely executed

  • I would seriously love to see this in person

  • This piece of work is older than the internet (well, not exactly) but you do very well in the translation.

    And for those of you asking, yeah, the floor is solid and waxed, and the car was chopped so it looked like it was sinking.

  • Seriously, so up our alley. Thanks for the share!

  • hillside

    This i awesome. I would be scared to see this in person lol.

  • CMR

    It looks like the car is drowning in milk

  • Ben

    The moment I seen this I was at an awe superb

  • Kristian

  • very interesting…

  • im in awe

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.
