So close, yet so far apart!

Under - Geography, Nature

I was looking for time zone difference in UK and western Canada and my online search ended up on Diomede Islands.

They are sometimes called Tomorrow Island (Big Diomede) and Yesterday Isle (Little Diomede) because the big island is 21 hours ahead of the small one (except when changing daylight saving time, done on different dates) … read more

Good taste and common sense!

Good taste and common sense

I was interviewing a candidate yesterday for a senior designer role and during the conversation I found out how easy it is to be a good designer or to find one. The candidate himself might have not noticed what he told me but I believe I’ve got the recipe.

Future is all Chrom-atic!

As a designer I don’t like the fact that now I’ll have to worry about one more browser for compatibility but I like Google Chrome! It still has a long way to become a mainstream player but you can bet the future is not that far.

Google puts together few short films on their YouTube channel that are also going to be aired on some TV netwroks. Is the browser war entering into a new era?

A Moment with Liza - Oil on panel by Lucong

A Moment with Liza - Oil on panel

Art is great when it is inviting and engaging, when it speaks to you – it needs to be more than a pretty picture! I especially like it when it is infused with cultures, experiences, stories and with realities. When it thrives on originality, bearing marks of personalities and personal touches. Lucong’s work is exactly that. I couldn’t escape from it when I skimmed ‘A Moment with Liza’. It told me to sit still and stare it, experience it. I immediately wanted to know the person behind it!

Timmy - Oil on panel

Lucong’s subjects, environments, arrangement of elements, colour pallet, strokes, textures, study of physical features, and selection of moods create a unique blend of emotions. It lured me and I’m tempted to praise it. Good art does exactly the same to mind that music to soul and food to body. We need to survive and we need excellent work.

This excellent stop motion piece from Canada is hatched by collaboration between Dumais Studio and Full Serve Productions.

The concept was to show the stages of an evolving relationship and the passing of trends, focusing on sending a message that,in the end, a good relationship lasts…

Meet the Kluge letterpress

Under - Art, Design, Media, Technology

Letterpress is a specialised and over five centuries old form of printing. It is also one of the inspirational elements behind this blog design. Fiction produced a small interesting video on this.

Meet Nick Sambrato. He runs a print shop in Orlando, Florida called Mama’s Sauce. A 2,000 pound, cast iron, electric powered monstrosity of vacillating rods, giant spinning wheels and pneumatic hoses.

Let Nick take you on a trip back in time as he runs through the process of turning an ordinary piece of paper stock into work of art.

To people that matter
