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.
There are some work that is really hard for me to describe due the amount of details and complexity, a good example is the project Decrypted Savants by Samuel Gomez. The mix of graphite, ink and acrylic on paper with some intricate illustration is simply mind-blowing. The details and gradients are simply amazing and that's why we are sharing this with you.
Samuel Gomez is an artist and designer based in New York.
We have been huge fans and followers of James White since the very beginning of Abduzeedo. James is such an inspiring person not only because of his immense talent but also his attitude in terms of trying to keep experimenting and evolving.
Jonathan Quintin has been previously featured on Abduzeedo for UI/UX projects and it's our first time showcasing one of his branding works. That being said, Jonathan inspires us with a beautiful combination of his core background into a set of branding and mark.

I've always been fascinated by fog, my hometown used to get foggy pretty often, especially in the summer. People always say, low fog means a hot day ahead. The visual effects created by a fog is striking, like suddenly this super low cloud takes over cities. San Francisco is pretty famous by its fog, it even has a name and Twitter account: Karl the fog (https://twitter.com/KarlTheFog).
