The current five ▾

  1. An annual assessment:
    Carolyn Zhang is a digital designer with a lot of experience creating political tech products, and last year was a big one for that. A recent set of simply-titled essays takes a look at "what i did & how i changed in 2020" and it's a great peek into an interesting industry.
  2. A powerful painting:
    Philipo Dyauli is a Tanzanian painter who currently works in Minneapolis. His style is colorful, graphic, and personable. I particularly can't stop thinking about his Swimming Girl piece, with its perfectly split display of both chaos and calm. I bet it's amazing to see in person.
  3. An solid sentiment:
    This Take Up More Space print from Manchester studio Dotto definitely fills its frame nicely.
  4. A offline optimizer:
    JPEG.rocks is an (great URL and) image compression site that works in your browser. It provides lossy image conversion without letting your image files leave your device.
  5. A very good vibe:
    Might spend the rest of the afternoon hanging out in Eric Hurtgen's portfolio. ✌️!
