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.
I have been more interested with photography since I got a new camera. It's always exciting to capture moments, walk on the streets and find great subjects. I am also always look for inspiration from other photographers, today I would love to share some images from great photographers across the globe featuring street musicians.
It's been quite a long time since we posted about character design. It's not exactly our forte but we really love the field and especially the work that we see out there on the internet. Most of the work is for the game industry and it's amazing the amount of details some of this characters have.
To give you an idea of how awesome character design is, we picked some examples from Yu Cheng, a illustrator, graphic and fashion designer from Taipei, Taiwan.
We are featuring this fantastic case study called VIVACITY by Raku Inoue. Raku is a clay artist, illustrator and motion artist based in Montreal, Qc of Canada. You wouldn’t believe how much work there is involved for just a few seconds of footage. This is a real proof of craftsmanship and determination.
This was my first solo attempt to produce a stop-motion animation. “Evolution” has always been one of my mottos because I consider it to be a key ingredient for longevity in the ever-changing business of art and design.
Today on Abduzeedo, we are all about Halloween! Since most of us will be in costumes for the occasion, how about the characters from Disney too. Well, this is what talented artist and illustrator Isaiah Stephens did and it’s done beautifully.
