Evolution of the LEGO logo The red, white, yellow, and black LEGO logo is synonymous with one of the world’s largest toy manufacturers, but it didn’t always look so familiar. Photo by Faiz Zaki, in Putrajaya, Malaysia. The story began in 1932, when carpenter and joiner Ole Kirk Kristiansen established his business in the village of Billund, Denmark, manufacturing stepladders, ironing boards, stools, and wooden toys. His son Godtfred Kirk Christiansen started working in the business alongside him, aged just 12. The first product line, 1932. In 1934, Ole’s company and its products adopted the name LEGO, an abbreviation of the two Danish words “leg godt,” meaning “play well.” Ole Kirk Christiansen at his desk, 1934. This ink stamp “LEGO Fabriken Billund” was first used on wooden toys in 1936. LEGO’s wooden cars, 1938. LEGO’s wooden duck, mid-1930s. The factory had 10 employees by the time this logo iteration was introduced in 1939 or 1940. Automatic Binding Bricks, 1949. LEGO Mursten packaging, 1953. Late 1954.
denisandernach El nuevo edificio de Apple está hecho para personas mayores Una gigantesca nave espacial acaba de aterrizar en Cupertino. Este verano, 12.000 empleados de Apple comenzarán a trasladarse a este enorme edificio en forma de disco, que ha tardado ocho años en construirse y cuyo coste podría ascender a 5.000 millones de dólares, lo que le convertiría en el edificio de oficinas más caro del mundo. Apple Park es el último proyecto póstumo de Steve Jobs; un proyecto que recuerda al Palacio del Pueblo de Nicolae Ceausescu en Bucarest. Jobs, como buen fanático del control, se encargó de todos los detalles, insistiendo en la calidad de los materiales. Si yo fuera accionista de Apple, no estaría muy contento. La ostentación en el decorado de la sede central de una compañía siempre ha sido una señal de que se cierne la calamidad. Como observadora de oficinas, estoy encantada. Primero, hemos perdido la confianza en las oficinas en general. La segunda tendencia negativa es la línea cada vez más estrecha que separa nuestros hogares y oficinas.

When paired with their love of travel, this playful interest culminates in a quirky and creative collection of photos that'll make you look twice. Set in cities across the globe and featuring bold patterns, simple shapes, and pastel colors, Devis' and Rueda's snapshots convey a wide range of architectural styles and structures. On top of simply showcasing beautiful architecture around the world, the charming photographs also demonstrate the duo's unique way of experiencing everyday life and interacting with their surroundings. Thanks to their clever poses, building façades become theatrical backdrops, spiral staircases turn into playgrounds, and windows are transformed into versatile props.

Abismo arquitectónico en las ilustraciones de Cinta Vidal Abismo arquitectónico en las ilustraciones de Cinta Vidal "Creo que cada cual tiene una perspectiva particular del mundo que habitamos: podemos estar muy cerca y muy lejos a la vez. Por eso juego con la gravedad, para representar ese 'estar' en un mismo lugar ocupándolo de formas muy diversas". Así define Cinta Vidal el motivo de sus ilustraciones. Utilizando pintura acrílica mate sobre paneles de madera noble, la artista crea espacios ficticios que encuentran su vida a través de una serie de detalles cotidianos. Antes de pintar, esboza con lápiz y guías de perspectiva, para luego colorear con toda libertad. Sobre sus ilustraciones agrega, "me apasiona crear espacios con muchos rincones habitados por personajes relajados, aunque sus mundos siempre terminen en abismo.
SmartDesk2. When Furniture Becomes a Part of you.Standing Desk Review If you are working in an office or from your own home, on the computer, or doing desktop tasks, there are two most important things on which your work depends besides your professional skills: the chair and the desk. While the office chair is easy to replace, the desk, if it is integrated into the design of your office, might get you some headaches especially when everything must be readapted and rearranged in order to fit it. I remember a time, just a couple of years ago, when I was working part time for an IT company. I had to be at their office for two or three days per week and stay there for about ten hours without taking long breaks. Your desk is a critical part of your work and you should choose one carefully. First Thing to Consider: The Price It’s cool to pretend that when you are buying something, the price is the last thing to consider. In reality, this is the first thing we look at, especially when buying things that are meant to last, like appliances and furniture. Conclusion
Ilustradores Argentinos | La Ilustración Argentina Destacada Meet Mr Doodle, the artist from another planet who wants us all to take things a little less seriously Sam Cox is a 23 year old artist better known as Mr Doodle, who describes his practise as "OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Drawing". What started out as usual childhood scribbles over everything from school books to his parents’ furniture has since evolved into not only a career but an entire new universe dubbed – you guessed it – DoodleLand. In interviews with the artist, it’s charmingly hard to tell just how much he believes this place of pure white space and infinite doodling possibilities to be a reality. Over the years Cox has chalked up clients including MTV, Adidas and Cass Art, working for people who are clearly enamoured with what he calls his "growing drawing virus". Above all though, his work is about having fun, and not taking things too seriously.
