Artist Ben Pieratt has started a fun project called Dead Bookstore where he deconstructs old books, separating all the pages, searching for interesting juxtapositions. He makes his findings available for purchase but also encourages people to go out and create their own (he put together a “how to” here). See images from Series 1 below!
Artist Mike Winkelmann, perhaps better known as Beeple, has been making a piece of art every day (from start to finish) for the past 3,416 days! That’s nearly ten years of consecutive days spent being creative! His motion work has garnered him a slew of Vimeo Staff picks, and artists like Flying Lotus, Skrillex, Amon Tobin, and many others have used his live visuals in their shows. I’ve seen so much of his work floating around the net but had no idea it was all being created by one guy.
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.
Amazing collaboration between London-based designer Oscar Lhermitte and design studio Kudu, this lunar globe isn’t just topographically accurate – it can rotate along with the phases of the actual moon! While created on a much smaller scale (1:20 million), “Moon” is based on data from NASA and computer outfitted with the same memory as the Apollo 11 computers. Check out more images and their Kickstarter video below!
Barcelona-based designer Daniel Armengol Altayo’s “#artificialselfie” is a device designed to continuously snap photos of itself and upload them to Instagram. Essentially it’s a robot that acts like a human acting like a robot. Video clip below!
