Unsplash introduces 'Visual Search', a new way to find images

It's cool to see products sharing enhancements through user experience and technical implementations that actually improve usage on the daily basis. It might pretty much product talk right now but this is why I always admire what the fine folks from Unsplash are building. Today we are taking a look at 'Visual Search' which is a new way on Unsplash to find more images. In a few words, you start by either drag & drop or paste the image URL in order to find images easier either for topics, find the original image on Unsplash, or to find a similar image.

The Unsplash Awards 2020 Finalists are here!

Back in October, we have shared the exciting news of the fourth edition of the Unsplash Awards on abdz. For those who didn't know, I was selected as one of the judges and I had the mission to select the final selection for the 'Architecture' category. It was such an honor and it wasn't an easy task at all. I wouldn't have imagined that it would have taken me days of reflection and I went back-and-forth many times.

The fourth edition of Unsplash Awards is here!

Unsplash Awards is back! It's a good opportunity to celebrate even though it has been such a challenging year (I think you all know why...). The Unsplash Awards is coming together for its fourth year and it's quite exciting to see it coming every year. The Unsplash team has celebrated lots of milestones. Now it's time to pay tribute to the community of amazing contributors who are driving the world by generously sharing.

Unsplash collabs with United Nations to help spread Covid-19 response

Unsplash have shared and released their collaboration with United Nations to help spread the Covid-19 response through the platform. First of all, I think we are all currently living through a historical moment with what is happening with our lives. And many factors have made us more aware of the digital world from its ups and downs. I think collaborating with Unsplash brings a tremendous power knowing that they are the disruptors of the 'open world' and especially when you need a fast response.

Apple Aficionados hand-picked from Unsplash

Apple! Products that we love and sometimes love to hate. Personally, I am a huge Apple fanboy, I have used their products for such a long time. I always admired their care for design and how we can become easily obsessed by them. Following this argumentation, our friends from Unsplash launched today their new logo. We are happy for them and it's crazy how their product/platform just keep growing and expanding.

More Workspaces Inspiration hand-picked from Unsplash

It's been again a little while since our last article on Workspaces Inspiration. Usually, I would find my picks via Pinterest but it's not great. The images are pretty low in resolution and the images aren't well credited for our purposes. I thought about giving a little surf on Unsplash and wow was I surprised. There are a lot of high-quality images and the experience is much friendlier than what's out there.

Discover Switzerland: Hand-picked from Unsplash

Bonjour la Suisse! To me, Switzerland is the country origin of the famous "triangular-shaped" chocolate brand Toblerone and the Swiss Alps. Fortunately, this country offers much more and how about a country bordered by Italy to the south, France to the west, Germany to the north, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east. That's amazing right?

Graffiti - Big, Colorful and Inspiring Street Art

It has been quite a long time since the last post on graffiti but after spending some time on Unsplash I rediscover the incredible work of street artists all over the world. Thanks to great photographers I selected some quite inspiring graffiti artworks, not so much of the conventional 3D typography, but more of the stylish and almost pop art style. The most fascinating thing about graffiti for me besides the colors and creativity, it's the size.

Unsplash X VanSchneider: Limited Edition The Urban Explorer Sweatshirt

One of the many great things about this community, seeing collaboration between one and another. Especially seeing great friends like Unsplash and designer Tobias VanSchneider making their first collaboration, a limited edition sweatshirt. Entitled: The Urban Explorer, this sweatshirt is perfect for your inner spirit of discovery and made for fellow explorers and creators. Made in Canada (yes!), this sweatshirt can be worn all year long and works great for layering.
