We all had a long week of work, school and maybe vacation (some of us) and after spending some time relaxing with family, friends; we'll mostly spend be ready to tackle a new week. Before you do, it's time for the Weekly Roundup where we curated our some of the interesting things that happened on the Web either it is news, a new tool to try, a cool video and some sites inspiration that caught on attention. We'll also include some Abduzeedo articles from the past week just in case that you've missed them. Time to sit back, see what you've missed and gear up for the next one.

Similarly to Jobs and Gates, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak didn’t finish his degree either – not the first time at least. After completing three years of college, Woz ditched school to work at Hewlett-Packard before eventually partnering up with Jobs to start Apple in 1976.
A few months ago, the First Family visited Yosemite National Park for the 100-year anniversary of the National Park Service. The video was produced by capturing the majestic landscapes alongside the President’s visits to different sites in the park.

A collaboration with Joey Roth who is quite a "connaisseur" when it come to speakers. Assembled in Portland, Oregon, the team at Grovemade produced a beautiful product that is authentic in material that will age in a variation of colour and wood grain. Also comes with a sound of a back-loaded horn to reinforce the speaker's bass response. This speaker is a mixture of an experienced craftsmanship with what would come out best of wood.
Simple and elegant branding work is always inspiring, at least for me. The Boontheshop project by NR2154NYC is an amazing example. Boontheshop is Seoul’s leading luxury concept store and of course the branding work reflects that. It's pretty much black and white and minimalistic. I know this type of project doesn't work for a broader audience but boy it looks cool, at least just to see the attention to details, from the packaging to the semi-serif typeface, everything seems very well-crafted.
As I am progressing my hobby as a photography enthusiast (beginner), I really take a great pleasure at looking these photographs. Every single frame tells a story and you can't deny admitting the colours are simply breathtaking. With the quality of work that Anton provides with his background as a designer, photographer and Co-Founder at Anton and Irene. It's just inspiring and definitely a designer to keep an eye on.
Who doesn't love Pixel Art? I feel that growing up playing video-games like Atari, NES, Genesis, SNES really influence my taste and trigger this passion for pixelated illustrations. I remember spending many afternoons playing Double Dragon or Streets of Rage with my friends. Those games were simple but boy they were a lot of fun. So every time I see someone that is good at Pixel Art I gotta feature here on ABDZ and for my surprise, it looks like we have never featured the work of Lucile Patron, aka Fulifuli.
DaFont was for sure the very first resource I used to download free fonts, back in 2003. Since then the website and the branding remaings exactly the same. For my surprise I found on Behance this concept project by Wendy Borg, a designer from Netherlands, she made a beautiful job with both parts, logo and website interface.
Heinz Bloody Mary is a personal project, I believe shared by Constantin Bolimond. The reasons I don't know for sure if it's personal is because the project is simply beautiful done. The quality of the renders gave me the impression it was the real product. In the end I saw that was done in Cinema 4D and VRay. Anyways, this 3D packaging project is a great example that today there's no excuses for designers to not execute and showcase their work well. The tools are available, it's easy to learn online. It's all about the designer.
