Design is all about communication, it's how to incorporate ideas and goals into a product that people love and use. The best way to describe that is that designers are story tellers. We tell stories through our work and this video by Robert Wong shared by the folks of Future of StoryTelling illustrates that extremely well.

Wikipedia defines stop motion as Stop motion an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence.

If Social Media was built in the days of DOS, 14.4 Kbps modems and Netscape Navigator, they would have looked very different. Well Kinna McInroe and Jo Luijten made this ambition from the past into a reality. This reality truly became a sensation and some of these videos were broadcasted on television and in the Nitehawk Cinema from New York City. After seeing the British BBC show 'Look around you', Jo Luijten was inspired by the idea of creating a nonexistent world in the past.
I really enjoy seeing designers taking on typography projects. Even though there are plenty type styles out there, the creativity of some people still amazes me.

I played Mario Bros years later, but at that time my eyes were focused only on playing frenetically Sonic The Hedgehog almost everyday. So, continuing our "nostalgic tutorials" series this one will be about this classic game opening, sure this will probably give you some really good memories so let's do it.

This guy, Levni, got some really interesting ideas from observations on a bus seat to some deeper subjects as life meaning.
