Before Life / Winners

The other day I asked you to choose between 5 finalists in our “Before Life” project with Poketo, and over 1,400 of you cast your votes!

You chose Andrew Lawandus! Congratulations Andrew, your design will now be made into a Poketo wallet! I also promised that we’d give away a wallet to a voter but since so many of you voted we decided to give away 5 wallets instead! The 5 winners are:

Each of you has a message from me in your inbox! The wallets still have to be produced as we need the artwork from Andrew but rest assured you will all get your wallets sent to you once they are made! I should mention these people were chosen at random using a painstakingly difficult process I invented myself in which I manually copy/paste every single voter name into Word, assign each a number, and generate 5 random numbers using random.org.

A giant thank you to everyone for getting involved, making designs, and leaving positive comments on the submissions!

Stay tuned for the next project!

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.
