    Snail mail is my favourite things in the world. I need to be famous like you and have a supper blog, so i can get tons of snail mail.

  • hah, they realy send you the album magazine?
    so that’s how my fellow class-mates trina promote their mag, huh.

    well then: how do you like it, jeff?

    • yea they’ve sent me a couple issues – the newspaper format made it hard to open up and go through pages on camera but i like the publication

    Love snail mail and really enjoyed your video! I’d be thrilled if you (and anyone else who sees this) would like to join my latest snail mail project. Between January 15th, 2013 and March 15, 2013 Just send something (anything- a postcard, a letter, a photograph, a painting, etc) to the address listed in the link below and you will be mailed back a zine called Missive Survival by May 2013 with all of the contributions incorporated. Thanks!

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.
