Graphic Design Trends 2019

In 2019, you can expect to see plenty of digital and graphic design elements that create a sense of order, beauty, and self-awareness. Jarring colors become harmonious in tiled patterns and modern collages, exaggerated proportions make for delightful and inclusive illustrations, and glitches become an aesthetic all their own. Like many trends across all branches, digital design in 2019 will feature a healthy dose of both nostalgia and futurism. With retro influences from brutalism, cubism, an...

AI Will Make Humans Better But Cost Us Control

The experts predicted networked artificial intelligence will amplify human effectiveness but also threaten human autonomy, agency and capabilities. They spoke of the wide-ranging possibilities; that computers might match or even exceed human intelligence and capabilities on tasks such as complex decision-making, reasoning and learning, sophisticated analytics and pattern recognition, visual acuity, speech recognition and language translation. They said “smart” systems in communities, in vehicle...

33-Year-Old Small Batch Single Malt Scotch

One of the heart notes in Dewars Blended Scotch Whisky, Craigellachie provides that well-known tipple with some Speyside single malt sweetness. On its own, the whisky shines beyond expectation—and its 33-year-old iteration is one that should make collectors swoon. It’s limited to 1,700 bottles around the world though, so very few will get to try this superb spirit with notes of apple, vanilla and nutmeg.

How Words Change Their Meaning

Language is a system. Sounds, words and grammar do not exist in isolation: each of these three levels of language constitutes a system in itself. And, extraordinarily, these systems change as systems. If one change threatens disruption, another change compensates, so that the new system, though different from the old, is still an efficient, expressive and useful whole. – Aeon

We Measure Attention – But Is Attention A Commodity?

Conceiving of attention as a resource misses the fact that attention is not just useful. It’s more fundamental than that: attention is what joins us with the outside world. ‘Instrumentally’ attending is important, sure. But we also have the capacity to attend in a more ‘exploratory’ way: to be truly open to whatever we find before us, without any particular agenda. – Aeon

The Role of Feedback and How to Manage It

“You can leave a comment in the box by the bathroom if you’d like.” That was the response I received after a particularly poor experience with a potential vendor. As I slid the feedback into the ambiguous box, it felt a bit like it was disappearing into the abyss. Will they ever read it? Do they really care? Why did I waste my time? I still don’t know if my input, which I considered valuable, was ever heard or addressed. Feedback is a vital part of any new roll-out process and should be present ...

The Tension Between Voice And Form

By way of continued labor, poets attempt to craft language that can carry their ideas beyond the passing moment, reframing their experiments as steps toward the ultimate realization of their aesthetic visions. The poet’s will toward synthesis of voice and form is about having something vital to say and knowing time is always running out. – The Atlantic

What Arthur Mitchell Meant To Dance

“Because of him, ballet could not exclude us,” said Virginia Johnson, one of Mitchell’s first dancers and the current artistic director of Dance Theatre of Harlem. “We were his army, united in the love of an art form.” Dance Theatre of Harlem’s entrepreneurship and success became “the impetus for what we know as culturally specific dance companies” today. – The Guardian
