Last week was full of great articles, we had lots of news about the Friend Connect from Google, besides that there was the very interesting Smasningmagazine list of Useful Podcasts For Designers And Developers. There were many more cool posts and below we list our picks of the week
I'm a Brazilian product designer based in Oakland, California currently working for Google as a Staff Designer. I am also the founder of Abduzeedo, an award-winning digital publication about design and a personal project that has become the source of inspiration for millions of designers and enthusiasts.
We're as excited to write this post as we are that a new hotel has finally cropped up in San Francisco's SoMa district. Hotel Zetta, the newest sibling to the Viceroy Group's Urban Retreat collection, boasts everything the modern day creative class could ever ask for and beyond.
In honor of "Jobs" hitting theaters this Friday we felt a perfect time to recount some of Apple's most memorable ads, specifically, "The Crazy Ones" an amazing montage featuring black-and-white footage of 17 iconic 20th century personalities. Enjoy this handful of Apple ad campaigns that have moved and inspired us over the years.
Cityspaces, some of us enjoyed chasing rooftops so they snap a selfie at a crazy (and dangerous) altitude, or take a picture of our shoes at the corner view of some building. Well some others like Coen Pohl who would rather illustrate them. It's safer! We've featured his work before and it's always an interesting pleasure to see what he's up with his cityscape isometric-style of artworks. Hope you will enjoy!
Visual identity is for me one of the most important areas of design. It is the definitive element within the design process used across all applications and branding materials. It's not just designing a logo, it's creating the identity of an organization. The Makery project represents this with majesty and so we just had to feature it on Abduzeedo.
The Makery is a creative consultancy with a primary focus on hand-crafted models, installation design and art direction.
