The Transformer Apartment

A Tiny Apartment Transforms Into 24 Rooms: Official Video ( http://youtu.be/L4yJGTPUR_0 ) I personally found this video to be pretty fascinating, as I’ve recently looked around at the real estate market and have noticed how hard it is to find quality apartments at an attainable price for a college student.  If more apartments were this […]

Drawing in photography

I found a link to a blog post with a number of images that the artist has drawn over photographs to alter the original image. I am not positive as there is no information on the site but I do not believe that the photographs are owned by the illustrator but it was interesting to […]

“Soft-Ride Bike Has Steel Tires”

              Link to article I could never imagine a bike made out of steel (including the tires) be a smooth ride. Ron Arad, who is also famous for a chair that he designed in 1986 called “Well Tempered Chair”, created this masterpiece. I found it interesting that he works […]

The Effectiveness of a 2minute Guinness Commercial

GUINNESS Commercial (  http://youtu.be/y07at1bU89Q  ) I found this commercial on youtube extremely entertaining and really enjoyed how different stereotypes of men were played on.  I was also very surprised to find out it was a beer commercial at the end (I guess I should have read the title first). However, with that said, I can’t […]

The Starbucks’ Siren

Google Art Project is what they called it. This spectacular website allows any user, whomever they may be, to navigate, explore, wander, […]

Texture, Not Just A Fad Anymore

With everyone and their grandmother launching a website these days, it is getting harder for businesses, organizations, and individuals to make their sites distinct, professional, and innovative.  One thing designers are doing to combat this issue is adding texture to their repertoire. Texture adds depth and visual appeal to a website and can also help […]

Sometimes typography is just awesome.

Interesting Quote

“A designer who gives her art away, makes no pay. A designer who keeps her art to herself, makes no friends.” — Amber Seree Allen Given my recently getting involved in AIGA Design Firm and becoming Co-production Coordinator, this resonated with me. It made me laugh first and then think to myself, truer words never […]

GDC

GDC or Game Developers Conference is a very large gathering that happens once a year in San Fransisco, California. Other smaller game conferences happen all over the United States at different times of the year, but GDC is by far the biggest and the best. They have an expo demonstrating new technology and new games […]
