We've shown you great HDR pictures and tutorials how to create your own. But this is the first time that we show you a full HDR movie. Chad Richard recorded the sunrise from the Twin Peaks in San Francisco. He is just one of a dozen Photographer in the world, that deals with this effect. This was an HDR time-lapse from Twin Peaks.
This week we select a bunch of links to you and with a great diversity of subjects. You will see nice references from FFFFFound, some amazing architecture buildings around the world, a bit of gadgets and a lot more. Always the Best of the week! FRIDAY - 09/19 It’s a Bathub.
We have been posting regular posts about inspiration and they regularly revolve around other designers, which is all fair and well. But i personally get a lot of my inspiration from music, and so here is a great inspiration to me, mates and a damn fine rock n roll band: Caousel Circus.

I've found a great video done with just skilled motion graphics, and some really nice audio. I always find it Quite impressive how amazing just 2 senses can immerse a person in to a piece of work, even if this is only a few short clips. I've watched it several times over just to try and figure out what techniques were used.
I really like german and american hip hop (but the real one, the roots, tupac, wutang and stuff) and Im always interested in freestyle rap. This is not a real design inspiration but sometimes you have to take a brake from working. GOOGLE VS.
Every day we see amazing and sometimes crazy sites. This week we've selected for you one of the craziest and funniest sites we've ever seen. It's a hotsite from RFSU. On the site you can shave and groom a pussy's hair...yep, see for yourself. I'll not say anything more about that! And take a look at the other sites, they are amazing too.
3 Mobile and Don't Panic are looking for a designer to create a poster as part of a street ad campaign, and there's a prize of £500 ($900). Mobile Broadband is a service offered by 3 that gives customers access to the internet on their PC or laptop using a USB modem and 3's HSDPA network.
One of the best ways to create spectacular abstract effects in Photoshop is by using brushes. They save you time and make the process less complicated.
Last night I was looking for some references about mathematics for a t-shirt design I’m working on. I found an incredibly cool Dutch artist named M. C. Escher.
For the first time, there's an interview with a german designer. Heiko Klug, better known as Jesar One, is an awesome 25-year old german graphic designer. Like a lot of artists he also started with doing graffiti and the changed to the digital medium of art.
Ok, I know what you thinking: "Dolls? C'mom..." But I gotta tell you that I'd never think about posting about this if it wasn't REALLY outstanding. So give this a shot! You won't regret! So, while visiting some sites, I ran into this guy, Noel Cruz, a dude from Philippines who's currently living in the US. The thing is that he makes these astonishing detailed dools of real people.
Web Picks is a new series here on Abduzeedo. The idea of the articles is to choose a subject, and present photography, artwork, designs, illustrations and tutorials we find on the topic; and put them together. When designing we tend to forget to look at mediums other than the one we are currently working in.
This is my first post on Abduzeedo, so let me introduce myself. My name is Daniela. I'm a Brazilian graphic and product designer. In this post I will share some images with you from Brett Walker, a photographer from London, UK. Brett has some superb black and white portraits, sometimes a bit scary and dark.
When i started photoshop I got interested in a lot of abstract stuff. I downloaded every brush I think it was worth it (which was nearly every second) and painted black pictures with a blue fractal brush and thought I was a hero. I miss this feeling and I also miss good abstract pictures. Here is one artist I really like and follow his stuff for years now. And I have to say.
Following our series of Pixelmator tutorials, this week we will show you how to create an abstract wallpaper using the Quartz Composer filters. Even though the effect seems a bit complex, you will be surprise how easy is to create it in Pixelmator.
I'm a bit disappointed this week. My desire to get a new Mac was delayed. Apple just released new iPod's, but there was no news about new Macs at the "Let's Rock" event! Nevertheless, I'm not that disappointed, because this week we had amazing stuff to show you; such as design, ads, gadgets, tech news, and much...much more.
Since my friend and I are developing our church's web site, I start to research tendencies for this kind of site. And my surprise is that there are really awesome sites out there about it! From vintage style to illustration, flash elements, gradients, photographic background... there are many trends, but all of them are really well done. So check these out, it's pretty great! Cheers.

Since the beginning of the blog we’ve featured designers and artists from all around the globe; including Brazil, the country where I was born and live. Even though we had some Brazilian artists, no one featured was from my state or even my city, until today. In this post I will feature a really talented artist from Porto Alegre.
One of the greatest challenges when you are starting a design career is the pursuit of your own unique style. As designers, we sometimes think that having a unique style may be the only way to achieve success in the design world, but is that true? In my opinion, having your own style can help, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the only way to succeed in the design business.
