Jean Jullien are you ready? Japan to stop whaling in Antartica: happy april fool's day? I did this hoarding for Byron's new restaurant in Shoreditch, London. thanks to Charlie Smith design (charliesmithdesign.com/) & Respect to Sir Mix-A-Lot. justin gabbard cemlurk: The first concert I attended on my own volition was on July 13th, 1996, the gig was Pantera/White Zombie/EyeHateGod at Coca Cola Starplex in Dallas, Texas. It was also the first time I took LSD. I was 13 years old. At the time, it was the coolest thing I had ever done. Although I spent most of the gig freaking out in a Port-o-Potty, overall the experience left a big impression with me - whether that’s good or not, I do not know.
io9 It's working out great for Venezuela, isn't it? Rounded up the dissidents, shut down the TV stations if they don't parrot the government's line, shortages of everything, murder rate shot through the stratosphere...wow, who could have seen that coming? The Venezuelan working class seems to like it for the most part, so non-Venezuelan ignorance to the contrary is irrelevant. Okay, actual Venezuelan weighing in. The shortages are not right-wing propaganda - we're sending care packages with non-perishable basics like powdered milk, wheat and corn flour to Caracas on a regular basis, things that Venezuela used to be self-sustaining on, along with meat, prior to Chavez setting ridiculous price caps that drove farmers and ranchers under, or to Colombia.

The Evolution Of Icon Design From 1981-2013 December 4, 2013 • By Joe Howard • In Design With the GUI having now been around for over 40 years, today we are taking a look back in time at the evolution of an integral feature – the icon. Since the early 70’s, when bitmapped screens were first developed with GUI’s, the humble icon has come a long way. The following is a collection of icon design in OS’s through history. johnson banks This project for a set of stamps actually started back in the 1990s with a series of design ideas that were a bit ahead of their time and were quickly shelved. When the brief returned as a set of ‘interactive’ stamps loosely aimed at children, technology had moved on and we were able to suggest these: ten nicely photographed fruit and vegetable stamps, accompanied by 72 stickers. The idea was that you could create your own vegetable faces (inspired at our end by Archimboldo, fuzzy felt and Mr Potato head). Here are our, very neat, graphic designer examples. Some of the designs done by the ‘Great British Public’ were considerably more unhinged, but that in a way was the fun of it. One magazine called them the ‘true democratisation of stamp design’, which was a good point.
Sugar Rush Colour Illustrations of Natsuki Otani Natsuki Otani, is a Tokyo-born illustrator currently working in England. We like the boldness in her colour choices, which create a rush of bright cheeriness on viewing them, and yet there is a more serious, thoughtful element to her work as well. Natsuki’s hope is that her illustrations can make people happy, even if for just a moment.
