Thanks 2016, It’s been weird.

Recently Spotify has started a global campaign that is based on their data that they collected from its user. It sounds like they are sharing people’s data with the world but it’s actually pretty cool. In this campaign they are saying farewell to the year 2016 and have named the campaigned “Thanks 2016, it’s been […]

Take Off Those Designer Glasses

It’s difficult for me to not look at everything in my life from a designer’s viewpoint. We are surrounded by design in everything we interact with. Some design is mind blowing, some is ok, and others are irritating. I went to the grocery store today to pick up a few things, and couldn’t help noticing […]

Anarchy

On Saturday a piece of punk history was burned and destroyed. The son of British fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood and fashion and music business maverick, as one time manager of the Sex Pistols, Malcolm Mclaren decided to set fire to a collection of Sex Pistols punk memorabilia. Now why would someone set fire to […]

Now that’s just sexy!

This is a painting by Andre Kohn, and it is sexy. You don’t need any experience in fine art to see that. What I want to point out is that it is not sexy, for me, because there is a lady in red in the middle of the canvas. It is sexy because of everything else. […]

Oh Fashion

I was out shopping today for a dress for an event this coming weekend and it was frustrating I tell you. EVERYTHING. IS. ORANGE. I get it. It’s fall/winter season so fall colors and darker colors are “in.” What is frustrating though is that not only are they all the same colors, they are also […]

Look at that Hair!

Hair is difficult. Whether you have straight hair, curly or hair in between, it is not easy to work with. Long, medium, short, they all have their own difficulties. The same can be said, probably even more so, for animated hair. Pixar had this very problem when tyring to animate Merida’s hair, the main character […]

Fooled again!

A 17-year-old prankster fooled some visitors of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art into thinking that a pair of glasses set on the floor was a part of the collection. They were simple black-rimmed glasses place on the floor. TJ Khayatan decided to perform this experiment because he wasn’t impressed with some of the […]

Meet Quainton

Sawdust, a graphic design studio, just launced a new typeface called Quainton and it is beautiful. Named after its creator Jonathon Quainton, it is a blend of Didone and Bauhaus characteristics; two of my favorite typefaces so imagine my excitement. It took Jonathan 8 years until he rediscovered the project and proceeded to work on […]

Yayoi Kusama

I am furious. I recently watched a video by PlayGround+ on facebook on Yayoi Kusama. The overall mood of the video is somber. The music accompanying the video sad and most of all the text on it was only partially correct. Rather than focusing on the world renown artist that Kusama is they chose to […]

Art is Art

  As artist, what we consider art is completely different from what others consider art. We have different levels where different types of artworks fall under that is just plain hypocritical. For example, I am in a sorority and this in turn result in me “crafting” a lot for it. The products I produce when […]
