It’s like the reinvention of the coloring book! A more modern and ‘hipster’ coloring book! ha! The ‘Walls Notebook’ features 80 pages of clean New York City walls, instead of blanks. Place your scribbles and art directly onto a truck, train or wall to see how they look in real life. You can purchase the notebook for 16.95 USD from ThinkOfThe.
Take a further look inside the notebook after the jump:
If your Mac problem is a little less common — your hard drive has failed or you’ve installed a hard drive without OS X, for example — Internet Recovery takes over automatically. It downloads and starts Lion Recovery directly from Apple servers over a broadband Internet connection. And your Mac has access to the same Lion Recovery features online. Internet Recovery is built into every newly-released Mac starting with the Mac mini and MacBook Air.
Make intern, Tyler Moskowite, sent over this clever bread bag closure power strip organization hack he found on the Interwebs. I have yet to find the original source for this hack, but hopefully someone will leave their name in the comments and we can all congratulate them for a job well done.
Kickoff lets you collaborate with your team in an elegant way, giving you the right tools for a clutter free, real time experience both online and offline.
This looks like a nicely designed Mac native alternative to 37 Signals Campfire. It even has a couple of features not found in Campfire alone. Perhaps, for your small team or business, they these make it a better alternative and worth the price.
That means Gotham went from a print-based library that included 7,520 individual characters (known as glyphs) to a web version that counted 47,778. That’s almost seven times as large as the original, and each one has to be carefully designed to operate at any size and a range of weight.
At the same time, the quality assurance process — testing each glyph in different circumstances to make sure it works properly — went from 74 individual tests for print through to 210 steps for the web. In total, the team at Hoefler & Frere-Jones had to commit to more than 90 million individual operations in order to make their foundry web-compatible.
A glimpse into the working world of the people that give us season after season what is the designed beauty of Mr. Oscar de la Renta. From hand crafting gowns to fittings for that evening’s runway show- this is what it’s like to work for one of the most beautiful designers in the world.
WhatIWore: Three of my favorite style mavens have something in common. They know how to layer and rock a watch (sometimes even two watches at once). Keeping Kendi, Krystal and Christine in mind, I put together my own layered looks. Check it out on my guest post on Timex StyleWatch!
“I keep noticing the many parallels between UX design and film editing. As an editor, I was always looking for the right cut to optimize the flow. If a cut could be made from one shot to the next, and the viewer didn’t have to change their fixation from that cut, it was a happy thing. To create tension, you do the opposite. You also place stuff in the middle of the shot to make it feel more isolated and alone. As such, it makes total sense in the West to have the “comfort” or expected action to be nestled in the right corner of the uncomfortable, pay-attention-to-me, center-of-screen dialog box, eagerly awaiting your action to move the narrative along.”—Craig Syverson, responding to Design Basics: Flow Is Why “OK” Buttons Are Always On The Right and Why OK buttons In DIalog Boxes Work Best on the Right (via timoni)
