This week, one of the most heavily funded early-stage startups in Silicon Valley finally emerged from beta, and I’ll bet that you’ve never heard of them. That’s because Tidemark--armed with $35 million from Redpoint, Andreessen Horowitz, and Greylock--isn’t a new social-networking app or some sort of social-bookmarking site. Instead, it’s an iPad app that aims to disrupt the databases and spreadsheets that have become the backbone of modern corporate management.

Food labels are on just about every packaged food you can find. But it's OK if you rarely notice them. Today's food labels fail to present a food's nutritional value in clear, consistent terms that all consumers can understand. Given the importance of food choices in our lives, better labeling could go a long way in addressing some of our most critical health issues.

Matt Lehman , everyone! That is, if you’re not already acquainted. Matt’s got a wonderfully warm, lovely style that’s hard to resist. In the piece above, like much of Matt’s work, I’m drawn to the combination of color, texture, layout and wit. Alongside his sharp type and illustration work, I really like Matt’s identities and logos. They’re simple and straight-forward, but also quite memorable.

My grandpa used to always say "a beer in the basket is worth an ocean of wishes"... he was crazy, but he made some dang good barbecue sauce. He would always slap his fat belly after every good meal in appreciation and say "that's slap fat good". Through grandpa's witty nonsensical one-liners and love for good food, slap fat devil was born. For over a year, designer Ryan Feerer and photographer Chad Zellner have been brewing sauce weekly in hopes that they could bring flavor to the BBQ sauce isle of their local market.
Developed by June Soft, Blank – Journal, Note is an app which helps people to constantly keep tabs on what they are thinking (Like we don’t have many of that already in the market). If Evernote is not exactly your cup of coffee and if you aren’t expecting anything exquisite, then Blank – Journal, Note might be a really good option. The first thing that you would tend to notice about Blank is its woody background and well-textured notebooks which gives it a very different outlook. This might not be everyone’s favorite – especially if you are one to like everything metallic and a little futuristic but if it does appeal, then we’re glad. Blank allows its users to create as many notebooks as they want to without a lot of fuss. In order to create a book, you simply have to tap the plus sign – together with a folder – at the bottom corner of the screen.
The Project: With the ever-growing spread of smart phones around the world, QR codes have gained major popularity in the past few years. Thinking there might be more visual possibilities in the world of QR codes beyond the simple black squares, we decided to explore a range of creative designs with different colors, shapes and mediums, none of which interfere with the basic functionality of the codes. Our Methodology: Under Jesse Thomas’ close direction, the JESS3 design team played around with building 3-dimensional codes out of legos, designing colorful codes which incorporated the JESS3 logo, skulls, and different paint-like effects like pointillism and drips reminiscent of graffiti. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Data is all around us – and savvy designers are transforming it into jaw-dropping images that also tell a story. Alice Ross charts their progress We’re in the middle of an information revolution: everywhere around us, mountains of data are being generated, and governments and organisations are increasingly releasing huge datasets, covering everything from weather patterns to spending data for us to pore over. And just as journalists have become specialists in mining these huge releases for stories covering subjects from MPs expenses to what local councils are spending their funds on, a select few designers have applied their imagination and talent to translating data into crisp and fascinating graphics, becoming experts in data visualisation and infographics. Put simply, these are images that tell a compelling story; designs that reveal something about the world around us.
A common feature amongst the top design portfolio and agency websites is a visually presented explanation of their design process. This simple idea of describing how a potential client’s project will be handled from start to finish is a great way of securing projects and giving the customer an insight into what their working relationship with the designer(s) will be like. This showcase rounds up a bunch of impressive examples of how various designers have explained their design process with the aid of clever graphical elements. Explaining your design process
