The iconic Nizo S 800 Braun Super 8 was made in Germany by Niezoldi & Krämer / Braun. This thing is a beautiful piece of history, one of the best super8 cameras ever built. This camera is gorgeous in terms of design, usability and how cool you used to look when filming. We are featuring the 3D creation by Jason Zigrino who built the Nizo S 800 right from scratch with Maxon Cinema 4D, ArionFX, Fusion 360 and Redshift3D. The result is magnificent and we had to find a slot to share this 3D achievement. Just take a look at the details, the dials, the font used and everything. Just wow!
In product design, especially when building a digital product and/or platform. Aside from building a design system, progressing into an organization collaboration, stepping a design language to the stakeholder's table and more. We often forget little things like illustrations, yeah that old thing! To be knowledge, it's a great way to express different kinds of things. Whatever it is an icon, transcending a vision of a feature, on-boarding or just giving a polished look to your product. I think it's really important to include this mindset in the design process.
It's very hard not to be inspired by the 80s, it is for my case for example. Being a kid from that era, you get to see how technology has changed over the years and some things where you thought would never change. Now that is changing and here we are embracing that future onwards. If you are not too familiar about 'vaporwave', it's a microgenre of electronic music and an Internet meme that started in the early 2010s but inspired by the 80s. Let's enjoy this amazing series of motion loops titled: 'Magical Vaporneon Loops'.
molistudio ™ is a studio based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, they have cooked up an illustration series about tennis. Simple as that, with the recent worldwide news we all heard of in the field of tennis, I thought it would be cool to have a little close-up to this sport and somehow appreciate all the little details. Obviously, the colours aren't maybe all represented on the actual field, but it's fashionable to share a different palette. What do you think?

A mixture of colors, techniques and a result that is looking very close to a real photograph. As always I will be very curious about his process but for now, let's enjoy its purity.
