Mixed Tape No. 4
I have been so crazy busy these past months (not that I am complaining) however I tend to browse the net instead of taking a coffee break, so I have actually managed to collect quite a few little gems from all over the net. I have also personally been struggling with my own personal style and because of that I have been staring at a lot of fashion stuff online as well as just looking at girls in general. Ever look at a girl in an outfit and think how awesome she looks, but you also know if you wore it you would look ridiculous? Well, that’s about where I am now. Sucks. So here’s my findings from the net over the last month and a half.
Lost Things – a creative little stop motion film from Anna Kohler. I wonder if it was the inpspiration for the Kindle advertisements or visa versa
Family Affairs – Amazing mother/daughter fashion design team whom I would love to spend time with and pick their brains
Psycho Girlfriend – Industrial design takes on another life form with these fashion designers. Forget sewing machines, they use wrenches and heavy machinery to create their styles
And now that I have gotten the fashion links out of the way, on to the geekier side of me -
Emotional Interface Design – Spending time lately doing a lot of interface design and found this article extraordinarily useful for inspiration and education
Tweepi - a tool that all bloggers should have (because all bloggers should also have a twitter account)
Engage Ads – an advertising agency who has produced some of the most impactful ad campaigns in this country (checkout their showcase!).
So that’s it for this installment of Mixed Tape! I have definitely been considering creating a new graphic for the mixed tape series, I just need a teeny bit of inspiration and a lot bit of time. Oh, and on a side note, I have been seriously considering redesigning the blog, so keep and eye out for a whole new look in the future. Wanna see more mixed tape? CHECK THIS OUT.
Mix Tape No. 3
Another day, another collection of neat things I found in my journey through the digital world
I am all about TM (Transcendental Meditation) and if I had time i would do it. Howard Stern actually opened me up to it and doing some research, I found a town that is comprised of all people who practice TM and plan to rid the world of violence and bring peace, one town at a time. Maharishi Vedic City.
Another Howard Stern inspired link. You know the game F- Marry Kill?? It’s kind of like that but a little deeper You Rather
You can go all “Japanese Tech” with these nutty watches from Tokoyo Flash a really cool spin on the calculator watch- personally I like the Tenmetsu. You need to know the sequence to know the time
Live high on the hog by using the Frugal Bon Vivant website. Tips and tricks on living cheaply without cheaply living
The all new iphone commercial for iphone 2010 CHECK IT OUT FIRST HERE!
And some extraordinarily inspirational artwork from Megan Frau. I like to cyber stalk that website and check out whats there and when.
So that completes this edition of Mixed Tape. Hope you enjoyed yourselves. I was thinking about reworking the graphic for the Mixed Tape headers. I think it’s a tad too large and over bearing, what do you think? Should I tone it down? Maybe a type treatment instead?
Mix Tape No. 2
This issue of Mixed Tape (No. 2) is a collection of some of the coolest stuff I have found on the internet. When I used to have my desk job, before doing graphic and web design full time, I used to spend an hour or two looking at stuff. Thank god for twitter for giving me access to some stuff that I would have never otherwise had found. So here it is.. Probably one of the most random Mix Tapes but one of the most mezmorizing.
The Incredible Art of Julian Beever – this guy is incredible, the most incredible thing is it is all temporary. Temporary pieces of phenomenal art work.
Amazing Tilt Shift Photography – I have an obsession with tilt shift photography that can pretty much be linked to my obsession with miniatures and legos
Turkish ad for the NY Times – if you love typography and news paper type, CHECK THIS OUT!
A Rotating Kitchen? – yep.. a kitchen that rotates on all planes, not just like a merry go round
I think that’s it for now. I had some other amazing links, but now I can not seem to find them. If anyone out there has a suggestion for a better way to save links than the crappy bookmark manager that comes with FireFox, please let me know. I am really upset that I am missing the new that I know I had, but I know I will find them, and when I do you will all love them.
Mix Tape No. 1
Because this is my first “Mixed Tape” post, I am going to explain it a little bit. This is basically a list of links to other people’s websites. It literally could be anything from other designers, fashion, and more. It is basically a collection of great tid bits that I find on the internet and use for inspiration, entertainment, or learning..
FFFFound.com - an eclectic mix of art, interior design, and more. User generated content makes this website never become tired or old.
Adbuzeedo’s collection of unique, amazing, and inspiring brochures. No tired tri-fold brochures here!
Future Fashion of 2000 – this is really cool video on youtube. Its a news story from the 1930′s about what fashion was expected to be like in the year 2000. They surprisingly were not that far off in the way of technology. Watch it for yourself, it is really interesting.
Binary Coder/Decoder – a fun little tool that will bring you back to the days of being a kid and wishing you could write your notes to classmates in a language the teacher could not figure out (unlike igpay atinlay)
sequence design – a really amazingly designed website that, event though it breaks the formatting mold, is very easy to use and engaging.
Do you have a suggestion for my next “mix tape” posting? Maybe your website is worthy, or you just saw something that would fit in. Send me an email with a link and a description – be sure to put the words “mix tape” in the subject line.
