Great flyer based on the classic Naga Champa incense, for a night by a fantastic label. I’d go if I was in London.

 

Play | 808 Cube

What would you get if you crossed a Rubik Cube with a Roland 808 synth? Awesomeness that’s what.

Happy playing.

Watch | Milton Glaser on Creativity, Technology and Life

Posted on

Milton Glaser is a New York Designer who co-founded the New York Magazine and is widely considered to be one of the greatest graphic designers alive. You might not know his name but you are extremely familiar with his work, he created this logo.

 

He has many wise words to say, well worth the watch. I particularly like what he has to say about technology;

The computer is dangerous because it shapes your capacity to understand what’s possible. The computer is like an apparently submissive servant that turns out to be a subversive that ultimately gains control of your mind. The computer is such a powerful instrument that it defines, after a while, what is possible for you. And what is possible is within the computer’s capacity. And while it seems in the beginning like this incredibly gifted and talented servant actually has a very limited intelligence — the brain is so much vaster than the computer. But, the computer is very insistent about what it’s good at, and before you know it — it’s like being with somebody who has bad habits, you sort of fall into the bad habits — and it begins to dominate the way you think about what is possible. … [Counter this] by doing things that are uncomfortable for it to do.

Another Brainpickings discovery.

How Well Do You See Colour?

Posted on

The company X-Rite that owns the well known colour system Pantone have created an online test that can tell you your ‘Colour IQ’. Once completed it will give you a score between 0-99. Zero being perfect. Your score will also be given on a comparison scale based on your age and gender. My graphic designer friend who discovered the test got 7. I got 12 which I’m quite pleased with.

Take the test here

What did you get?

Interesting flyer

I’m going to start posting flyers I see and appreciate because there are quite a few well designed and artistic flyers produced these days.
