She is the first to venture into graphic design, and her work can be found gracing the pages of websites of some very notable companies, including Rolling Stone, Sony, Apple, Interview, and Reebok, to...

In most of my projects, and likely other designers' projects as well, the design concept is completed before any verbiage is provided by client, or written by me. In order to provide a visually complete design concept, placeholder text is often used, in the form of what is known in the industry simply as "Lorem Ipsum". Lorem Ipsum is a set of "dummy text", written in Latin, that has been used since the 1500's as placeholder text in printed works....

Meet the tiniest snowman ever created, measuring an amazing 0.01mm across (1/5 the width of a human hair). Although not actually made of snow, it sure is cute. In reality the tiny snowman is made from two microscopic tin beads welded together with platinum. Normally these beads are used to calibrate electron microscopes. David Cox, a nanotech expert at the National Physical Lab, used a focused ion beam to etch the smile and eyes and to deposit a bit of platinum...

This retro artwork PC was designed and developed by SchultzeWorks, Pasadena, California. The Philco PC placed in the top three in a V-Ray sponsored design competition. Makers say the retro look was inspired by a mix of, "1954 design classic Philco Predicta [television], as well as an eclectic mixture of modern minimalism, the steampunk movement, and antiques". Check out the SchultzeWorks website for more info.   [gallery link="file" columns="4"]...

I had originally wrote this segment a long time ago, and intended it for our "about" section. I don't know, but it seems more like a seminar speal than a friendly note about us, so I left it out. But, I think it's a good read for potential clients anyway. This is mostly geared towards us in particular, but a lot of the same principles apply to other smaller agencies as well. Why Smaller is Sometimes Better There are many cost and...

Update: I thought I would post the actual maker of these goggles, too. The website is: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/6278166_YCdn5. There are a lot more photos and details at this site. It's entirely possible that Mike Brown overdosed on ADD meds: These brass goggles scream "attention to detail. Some numbers: The leather is actually bolted to the eyepieces, using 48 tiny bolts plus another four for the nosepiece. The leather was chosen for the tanning process which should give it a klife of a few...

Veer is a great example of a company that exercises intelligent and effective marketing practices. Veer really gives designers what they want, not what they want you to have.Instead of forcing their message at you like many big companies, they give you fun, memorable little things that appeal to the designer within. They are consumer-oriented, and as a result their marketing efforts are exciting, and most definitely effective. Lots and lots of Kudos to Veer for their fantastic marketing efforts. Since joining...

"Sure we've seen illuminated keyboards before, but then we saw the Luxeed Dynamic Pixel LED Keyboard and stopped looking.  With 430 LEDs the Luxeed is capable of individually lighting each key in your choice of color. What's more it can do some amazing tricks like an animated rainbow across all the keys, or make each key light when you press it. You get four "preset" buttons above the arrow keys you can use to instantly choose between different customizable lit...
