Watch Dark Igloo

I’m exhausted from work. So excuse me if I’m lacking light and or wit right now.

Dark Igloo is amazing. You need to check out more of their work and play with their site. Especially the contact page.

braulio amado

Braulio Amado is a Brooklyn based Portuguese designer/illustrator with a real slung-together mix & match of styles producing a fulfilling ocular portfolio.

Ever wonder if I wrote that bullshit copy you find in artist statements or like the descriptions of performance pieces or some shit?

The dude’s rad, we can’t say he’s a thief though it’s quite transparent here. Anyways all of the greats stole from the not yet revealed. There’s no reimbursement attempt nor thought.

Damn I just ruined this post.

Braulio, I like your work dude. It stopped me in my scroll frenzy and has clearly strung out some deep thoughts.

Take a gander through the rest of Braulio’s portfolio.

Best of Tumblr 2013

tumblr year in review

The team at Tumblr released their year in review and it’s fucking sick.

I’ll let them explain it for me.

Tumblr’s Year in Review is a showcase of the best stuff on the Internet from 2013. Follow along for a daily dose of creativity, humor, humanity, fandom, and sharing.

And GIFs. Lots of GIFs!

How’d we get these incredible results? We analyzed millions of blogs, billions of posts, and zillions of notes according to a number of factors — total volume of posts and tags (original and reblogged), web traffic, follower growth over time, and more. Finally, we put them into the blog you’re reading right now. Hello!

TL;DR — It’s been a great year!

I’m terribly impressed and now sitting here wondering not why I don’t produce this caliber of work, but why am I so restrained to one style, several color palettes and a head full of textures and favorite typefaces?

Lundgren + Lindqvist is a design and development studio based in Gothenburg, Sweden and they’re absolutely on top of their game.

I suggest rolling and tapping left to right through their portfolio for a quick jolt of that inspiration stuff.

Buying For Sure: Picture Cook

I adore this cookbook conceived by Katie Shelly. If you can’t fucking tell, she’s taken away all those stupid words that your 2013 attention span and also quite possibly eyesight can’t stand to handle, with illustrations and general measurements or none at all.

It’s essentially the illustrated infographic of cooking shit and I love it because honestly do I have time in my life to add a pinch of paprika? No, I just shake that shit out till it looks appeasing and not dangerous.

Buy the Picture Cook book here.

Noémie Cédille: Babe Who Designs

Noemie Cedille

It’s been far far far too long. As I’ve embarrassingly have been forced to explain to several people, I’m having a hard time posting babes at the moment. Due to the fact that my posting time is towards the either bitter or sweet end of my work days because I unfortunately don’t have a steadily strong internet connection at my current apartment.

My creative director’s office is behind me. It might be a bit fucked up if she found me downloading total foxes and writing about them when I should be putting pencil to pixel and mind to matter.

This will all change in roughly 20 days.

Right now I have Noémie Cédille for you.

She’s a wonderfully talented designer/illustrator, lives and works in Paris and best of all, is a total fucking babe.
