2016.03.07 DKNG Explorers Club Patch

DKNG Explorers Club Patch

I really like DKNG's work, and own multiple prints from them. I also have a soft spot for patches (though, admittedly, I never do anything with them, apart from put them in a little "happy box", and look at them every now and then). As it is, the venn diagram represented by this new patch essentially guaranteed I would buy it. $6? Done. #

Beth Dean - Emotional Intelligence in Design

I thoroughly enjoyed Beth Dean's thoughts, insights, and suggestions in this fantastic article. If you have anything to do with design, or interacting with other people via a computer, I highly recommend you read it. Here's just a tease of one of my favorite parts (though it was filled with so many awesome elements, I've saved a copy for myself).

People completing seemingly straightforward tasks do so in a variety of contexts and life circumstances. Humanity can be sad, complicated and messy. We don’t stop being human when we go online. Sometimes even when you’re trying to make something with the best intentions, something can go terribly wrong. Sometimes the very tools you create to protect people cause harm. What can we do?

Really. It's so good. #

I'm kicking myself that I didn't notice these earlier. I really like DKNG's work, and already own some of their work. Despite missing out on some of their prints, I still just snagged a copy of the one I would have bought, if coach would have put me in fourth quarter. There are so many fantastic designs, you have to look through them yourself. I'm a hoarder, so I've included some of my favorites here for your viewing. Really, fantastic work, yet again, by DKNG. #

The Sailor's Dream by Simogo

This is a bit out of my norm, but I'm looking forward to this game. I've played other games by Simogo, and have really liked them. The concept and artwork behind this are appealing, and I find myself sucked in. #

2014.07.25 Jian Guo - Lord of the Rings Covers

Jian Guo - Lord of the Rings Covers

These are gorgeous designs submitted for a contest for Chinese versions of The Lord of the Rings. There are so many nice touches. Looking around Jian's other work, these seem slightly out of style for him, yet still close enough. I'd probably buy a nice trio of these if they were prints, even if only available in Chinese. #

You are not a storyteller - Stefan Sagmeister

Simple, straightforward input on people like you who are clearly under the wrong impression that you're a storyteller. You're not. Probably. #

2014.07.11 US Trade Emblems by Arno Kathollnig

US Trade Emblems by Arno Kathollnig

Really clever design, especially on that upper-right one. Sure, it has a hint of renaissance-era type, but I love how the type hints at that classic shield form. The added bonus here is the accompanying vector files. Awesome. I came upon these after seeing Arno's stamps in the Dribbble 5th Anniversary blog post. Looking through his work on here, I see these aren't a fluke. Well done. #

2014.07.03 World Cup Stamps 2014

World Cup Stamps 2014

A great concept, and a shame that it's just a self-project. I've thoroughly enjoyed this year's World Cup, and these would be a great commemoration of that. #

2014.03.30 Pop Chart Labs - Diagram of Dogs

Pop Chart Labs - Diagram of Dogs

I've spent too much time looking over this diagram, seeing how different dogs and breeds are related and connected. I'm not so much of a dog person that I'd want a print of this, but maybe you are. Regardless, it's really cool. #

2014.02.26 Art of the Title - The Lego Movie

Art of the Title - The Lego Movie

A fascinating read-through of the title sequence of The Lego Movie. I can only imagine having that many Lego pieces to work with, and being able to spend that much time playing working with them. Admittedly, I just follow the instructions, but I also don't mind if my kids play with them. #
