It's time for our honest appraisal of the MacBook Pro. After almost 5 years using my old MacBook Pro, a first generation retina display, the time had come for an upgrade. I've been chomping at the bit for Apple to announce a new laptop because mine was having a lot of issues. Be it the bevy of dead pixels, battery life of less than 1 hour to the most frustrating of all, ghosting effects on my screen. So finally, at the end of last year, Apple announced the new MacBook Pros with the Touch Bar. Time to hit the savings and purchase one.
Grimms' Fairy Tales Illustrated by Ale Giorgini is a set of illustrations of wallpapers based on classic fairy tales. Whichever one is your favorite, it isn't hard to get glossy eyed and nostalgic over the forever legendary Brothers Grimm tales. With his brilliantly retro flair, Italian illustrator Ale Giorgini evokes the same feeling and transforms the iconic tales of 'Little Red Riding Hood', 'Snow White' and 'Hansel and Gretel' into stylish, contemporary illustration pieces for the home.
As a designer, I am a frequent user of Behance. It’s a beautiful platform that featured some of the best artists, designers and illustrators out there. One thing that annoys me though is the design hasn’t changed much in the last few years. For example, those gradient buttons are hitting me hard! Let’s take a look at the work of Nora Park who decided to take the platform for an overhaul concept. Overall, I really enjoyed her interaction design and direction for Behance, too not keen on the interactions but in the “ensemble”; it’s a lovely concept!
