Woven Paper Tapestries by Artist Gunjan Aylawadi



Incredible paperworks by New Delhi-born, Sydney-based artist Gunjan Aylawadi. The mosaic-like patterns are created using rolled up strips of paper, woven and glued into place. I really want to run my fingers along them to feel the texture. See more images below!

Elaborate Artwork Made From Hand-Cut Lettering Copied From Found Notes


Playing with the relationship between public art and private correspondence, Oakland-based artist Annie Vought’s labyrinth-like patterns of hand-cut letters are based on actual pieces of writing she’s stumbled upon. If you look closely enough she even adheres to the penmanship, word choice and spelling of the original authors. More images below!

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For


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.

Motoi Yamamoto

Theme Magazine has kindly hooked me up with a subscription to their publication and if they hadn’t I might not have come across the amazing work of Motoi Yamamoto! Yamamoto uses salt to create large, insanely detailed, floor patterns. Pick up Theme (issue 18) to see way better photos of his work, and to read how he relates his work to keeping a diary.
