Simple Math

Manchester Orchestra Simple Math music video directed by Daniels

“Simple Math” by Manchester Orchestra has to be one of the best music videos I’ve seen in years. This is a landmark for director duo Daniel Scheinert and Dan Kwan (aka DANIELS) whose work up until now has been style over substance but they found a perfect balance here. A+

Watch the music video below!

    Amazing. Not to mention the ratings speak for themselves – 100 likes, 0 dislikes :)

    Used to have a Dakota truck just like that. It’s funny this music vid should bring up such good memories I had with it.

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!
