  • it’s so satisfying to watch this!

    • yes! especially the closeups of it flowing out of the tip of the quill

  • What a wonderful video! I have been doing a bit of calligraphy these days but the control the artist has is amazing. Very envious of his skills.

  • Cassie

    This is just gorgeous all the way through.

  • Oreka

    definitely cool video but this guy is an ass, he sent hate mail attacking revoks and rime’s work from msk, he sounds stuck up and doesn’t think things through.

  • KLC

    Great site, blog and post, keep up the excellent work 🙂

  • Wow. How beautifully shot. I love the marriage of the planned and the spontaneous. I also love to see his preparation routine at the beginning. Elegant.

  • Gives me a peaceful, relaxing feeling. The speed of his hand is like dancing on the paper.

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.
