So there we have it. I’ve reached my peak. This is it, the SK55 is my all time favorite product and there’s nothing in the world more important for me to share on this website than this. The Braun SK55, or the SK4 to be more specific, is in my opinion, the most important product in Braun’s history and therefore the most important product to the design of electronics today. It started everything. It’s what smacked us in the face and told the world that everything we were making was poorly thought out and conceived.

Barton Smith I wanted to write down some thoughts on my time at Flud over the last 6 months for those of you out there who may be thinking about joining a startup but just don’t know what to expect or think it might be a little too risky compared to the corporate womb. I was back in Australia in June when Bobby, who I had met through the interwebs a year earlier, popped his head up, offering me a position to help out with his design efforts as they entered their new phase of Fludery. Side note: If you are in San Diego and you are interested in startup culture and how the world works, grab a beer with him.

Desserts and fruits become precious decorative elements to be put on proud display, all without losing their goodness or edibility, so once we’ve finished playing with our food we can still eat it, just like the candy necklaces we used to have as kids.

Share: The Icon No One Agrees On - BOLD by Pixelapse What do each of these symbols have in common? They are all trying to convey the exact same action - share! Sharing to a social network or via email is a ubiquitous action nowadays but designers have still not been able to reach a consensus on what symbol to use to represent it. Not only does each major platform use a different icon, but they've each witnessed changes over the years. Nevolution: Network - Twin Cities The typographic system Twin Cities is a family of typefaces that exists as a result of the networked society that shapes our current cultural and social era. This new era posits a change away from the mechanic and electronic logic of yesteryear, towards a worldview that realises all forms of identity are a result of connections to neighbours in the network. It represents a shift in moving away from using semantic values as a marker of design, using the context of the broader environment as a means of justifying the alteration of form. In departing from a focus on historical styles that has become dominant in recent typographic trends, Twin Cities approaches the concept of identity from another angle.
