Delta Board

TheeBlog-DeltaBoard

I’m always excited to find cool and interesting nail-yarn projects online. There’s something special about the dedication, time and laborious task of using hundreds or thousands of nails and yards and yards of yarn. Today I want to share a cool feedback-based display board created for Delta by Ryan Tempro & Kristie Feltner. Check out the process and video after the jump.

Jay-Z & Samsung

TheeBlog-JayZ_Samsung There is no doubt that Jay-Z is a business, man. His global reach has expanded way beyond music, and his (or his team’s) entrepreneurial skills, are nothing short of admirable. His image and empire has proven to be a gold mine for sponsors and corporations willing to partner up to milk his media value. And now, Jay-Z has partnered with Samsung to release an exclusive treat for Samsung Galaxy users, ahead of his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail official release date (July 4th). Samsung purchased 1 million copies of the album, and will offer Galaxy users the opportunity to download it 3 days before it hits stores. Check out the event teaser video, aired during game 5 of the finals between the Heat and Spurs, after the jump.

Let’s talk Apple and iOS7

TheeBlog-Apple_ios7 So, by now, I am pretty sure you are aware of Apple’s latest releases and announcements. Yes, reactions to these have been… let’s say eclectic – or colorful (seems a little more appropriate). Today I want to briefly talk about the re-design of iOS7. One, because I know you guys are probably also struggling with this issue and two, because I needed to rant. I’ve been a loyal Apple supporter for years and was curious to see if the rumors about Ive’s new flat experience were true, I mean, as a Designer, this was something I was looking forward to. But what I saw at WWDC simply didn’t feel right… (and I am being gentle)

Masters like Dany Yount, Nando Costa, Ash Thorp and many more have delighted us with beautiful mini-films and title sequences that go well beyond the expected, inspiring many of us and raising the bar a little higher each time.

Today, I want to share the recently released titles for this year’s OFFF Barcelona conference, created by the geniuses at From Form in collaboration with Part of Something. The stunning film features a lovely story and all speakers in a way that I’ve never seen before, and that I am completely in love with! Simply BRILLIANT! This is your must watch of the week!
