Booooooom x Design for Mankind “Free Encouragement” Postcards!

The postcards are here and they are beautiful!!! The much anticipated finale to our insanely huge PROJECT # 5 – Free Encouragement. Thank you to all of you who submitted designs to Erin (designformankind) and to the hundreds of you who submitted encouraging words during the first part of the project! You can get these very limited edition postcards at our ETSY SHOP! Better hurry, once they’re gone, they’re gone.

The postcards are all beautifully printed, gloss finish, and come in packs of 5 – each individually sealed and then shipped in a stiff cardboard package so they won’t be all bent when you get them.

17 creative websites to bookmark (unless you are dumb)!

At the risk of having you never come back to this site, I have compiled a list of 17 other sites to feed your creative appetite. Dozens more could have been added to this list (perhaps there will be a sequel to it). Most of the sites included here do not get the credit they deserve, and even the popular ones deserve even more attention. In no particular order:

Project #6 – Pixel Portraits!

Here is Booooooom Project #6! Pixel Portraits! Throw on one of your favourite movies. Pause it. Pull out your camera (make sure the flash is off). Snap a portrait of one of the actors (depending on your shutter speed you may need to try several times before you get one without a dark bar moving across the image).

Upload your photo using the form below! Make sure you include your name but don’t worry about including the movie title or character’s name, part of the fun will be everyone else trying to guess. Once there are several submissions I will post the gallery and the guessing game can begin.

I don’t want screenshots from a computer, I want portraits shot with a camera in all their pixelated glory!

Do you know the title of this movie? The character’s name? (Bonus points awarded if you know the line of dialogue.)

It’s exciting to see the readership of this site really expanding in unexpected directions. Hush Puppies for example, found out that I love slippers and moccasins and kindly sent me a nice pair! Cheers you guys!

Just want to take a moment to wish you all a giant Happy New Year! I spent New Years Eve up on the mountain with my sister and hope to be up there lots over the next couple months, but rest assured I’ll be working harder than ever on the site! Thank you all for the support over the last six months – I look forward to inspiring you and being inspired by you all in 2009. Cheers!
