Hand-Drawn Type.

Designer and artist, Jon Contino, is a master at hand-drawn type. He is one of the great creatives who really know exactly where they want to go, want to do, and aren’t afraid of what they need to get there. His work ethic is amazing, and I really need to step mine up. I’m here blogging half awake because of food coma and not lack of sleep (although I have that too), contemplating whether I want to [Read More]

Los Angeles Screen Printers.

If you’ve ever wondered how t-shirts are made or more specifically, how screen printing works, the good people over at Thrash Lab have made a video for you guys! The medium of screen-printing has always been a go-to for brands and creatives within both the fashion and communication industries. The (relative) ease and accessibility to the materials and such have been super appealing to a lot of creatives. I use a local screen printer in downtown Los [Read More]

Borders of Infinity.

Louis Vuitton brings us a short film by director KT Auleta that pays homage to Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Room and its concept of self-obliteration. This idea of getting lost within a sea of ourselves and, in this case, being dots or lights is interesting. An excerpt from the Louis Vuitton website says this: Infinity can be made up of a cloud of hypnotic dots; it is also a prism through which Art is reflected. Literature, photography or [Read More]

GOOD and Complex.

Complex Magazine has always been one of my favorite magazines, mostly because of their amazing covers and features. I guess I could be biased because of my love for the hip-hop and the culture, but in terms of design and coming from a background in print design, I think its a great magazine. The August/September issue of Complex Magazine has brought together the key members of the G.O.O.D. Music family for a great in-depth interview and photoshoot [Read More]

Lego My Eggo.

Chrome is really (trying) changing the way that the web works, especially with HTML5, and with the newest version of the browser, you can now view 3-D graphics right in your browser. In order to show you an example of what exactly can be done with this tech, Google has partnered with LEGO to create the world’s biggest LEGO┬« set: Build with Chrome. Right now, the web app is limited to only Australia and New Zealand maps, [Read More]

Googling Beverly Hills.

Bear with me as I get back into the flow of blogging. I have so many posts to catch up on. Sorry guys! Apparently Google just opened new office for its YouTube division over in Beverly Hills and it looks AMAZING. The new office space is designed by HLW, a group that has made quite a few offices for the Internet giants. Filled with friendly and open spaces, cozy cafes, sunlight shining through plenty of windows, and [Read More]

The Avengers Interface.

Sorry I’ve been MIA from blogging for the past couple weeks, its been busy, but I should be back to my usual schedule. Time to play catch-up! Its been over a month since the release of the huge blockbuster film, Marvel’s The Avengers, and if you haven’t seen it yet, there is something seriously wrong with you. One of the awesome aspects of the film is the special effects and CG used in the movie. I’m a [Read More]

Happy B-Day Animated GIF!

The scourge and blessing of the internet, the animated GIF, turns 25 this year. Compuserve was the first to introduce the file format back in 1987 and from there, its use has exploded into so many various ways. From video clips to animated photographs, the animated GIF has been used in every corner of the internet. To celebrate the glorious file format, someone has put together a video to celebrate the picture and also maybe give you [Read More]

Good Morning.

Japanese clothing brand and one of my favorites, UNIQLO, came together with Grammy nominee Cornelius (Keigo Oyamada) and Yoko Kanno of Cowboy Bebop fame in order to create something not entirely new, but unique in a way. The “Wake Up” social app for both iOS and Android was developed in order to wake you up in the morning in an enjoyable way. The app features alarm music that changes depending on the time, weather, and day of [Read More]
