The current five ▾

  1. A creative creation:
    Jimmy Simpson takes loose line drawings, brings them into a 3D modeling software, and makes rotating mobiles out of them. It's impressive and inspiring that he's able to find a sculpture in a squiggly line, and it'd be wild to see some of these brought to life.
  2. A lovely logo:
    Might & Main designed a flexible, literal, and really well-done identity for a Boston seafood restaurant.
  3. A format focus:
    Unraveling the JPEG is a super thorough look at what those common image files look like from the computer's point of view. I applaud the author, Omar Shehata, for pulling back the curtain on how much is really happening behind something as simple as a photo of a cat.
  4. A weird website:
    George Kedenburg III has a website that looks like a note. Kinda clever/fun.
  5. A wonderful watch:
    Ashley C. Ford puts a lot of great things into the world, and her 99U Conference talk is right towards the top of the list. I'd love as many people as possible to hear her poignant, powerful message about the importance of imagination.
