The façade provides a level of energy efficiency and noise reduction.
Dredgers Union is an apparel shop where talent and hard work is being done in a historical part of Downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
They say that, “we can’t waste anytime or monety that doesn’t work.” They are creating apparel that has to mean more to people, last longer, and is not so in and out trend driven.
While operating they discovered that where they are is one of the most foot traffic streets in the city for tourism. Who knew?
Tumblr is quickly becoming not just a blogging platform, but a place where people build home pages. Is the future of "home pages" a chronological update of what you're doing? Or, more precisely, are you the sum of everything you share?
That seems to be what it is right now — identifying yourself by the things you share. It's hard to say if that's the future of home pages, because who knows how long pages will be around. But are we the things we share? That's a big question. In real life, that could hold up. These are the clothes I'm wearing, these are the things I want to talk about, here's what I've done lately. It might be more chaotic than a chronological timeline on a page, but it's not far from what we're trying to do here. I don't think anyone can create a new de facto way to represent identity, but we can get closer and closer to how we're getting along in real life.
What past technologies have inspired your work the most?
Sci-fi movies, cars, magazines, fashion. Things that exist today that we take for granted, that were only budding in hobbyist circles before. Working on web interfaces and apps feels like a weird thing and sometimes it's hard to say who's doing it right because it's so new. But so was storytelling with film, and designing the gas pedal.
When you start a product from scratch, how do you organize your thoughts and prioritize your goals?
The very first thing is talking to someone about it, and to immediately start drawing it on paper. It's important for me to get it on paper first. One, it's a fast way to get all the bad ideas out; two, I'm away from the distraction of a computer; and three, by the time I'm doing the labor in Photoshop, I'm not as worried about what the end product will look like. I also rely a lot on showing the work to other people. We're all in chat rooms, so it's easy to show a few people at once. Then, I try my best to iterate.
10 mobile UI designs to get inspired by of their uniqueness and beauty.
As a kid, there were those colorful ball pits at the end of the giant slides for safety. But, rather than focus entirely on safety the designers behind them focused on the enjoyment once you “crash” into the ball pit.
It’s how you approach the situation and where you decide to focus the attention while offering the solution.
Design is how it works.
Ryan Carson posed this question. This is frankly about helping out a product and service that will make for a better tomorrow. We’re behind that 100%. If you have some free time donate it to Freecycle.
Collaboration and co-working might be the solution or even a few random people willing to put in the hours for instant gratification. Thank goodness for designers and developers like you and Mr. Carson.
Freecycle is an awesome idea that has the power to change the world by reducing the amount of stuff thrown away in landfills. Instead of throwing something away, you take a photo of it and post it on the site. If anyone wants it, they contact you to arrange pickup.
My father is my inspiration.
Many great people who have changed our world have said that their father inspired them by either what they said or how their actions transformed into wisdom.
