Changing seasons are the inspiration behind this vintage-esque typewriter!

The number of people who opt for laptops over desktops has been increasing by the day. Not everyone prefers keyboards, but they are essentially useful for people who tend to type a lot on a daily basis such as writers, journalists and etc. We’ve seen a lot of innovative portable keyboard designs over the years, however, Lofree’s Four Seasons Keyboard is an ode to the past. Inspired by quintessential typewriters, the Lofree Four Seasons is a retro-esque mechanical keyboard. As the product’s name ...

Pop-Up Book Celebrating the Design of Immersive Sega Arcade Game Cabinets from the 1980s

In the videogame arcades of the '80s, the rank-and-file games were pushed up against the wall. But in the middle of the room were the special ones--larger, immersive cabinets that you climbed into, paying 50 cents rather than 25 for the privilege. For an extra quarter you got to sit in a cockpit, in a driver's seat or on a superbike.In the early 1980s, Yu Suzuki, a young videogame developer working at SEGA developed a series of groundbreaking arcade games – physically impressive, custom-built ca...

Pensa Tackles Aluminum Luggage Redesign for Zero Halliburton

Erle P. Halliburton wasn't an industrial designer, but he was both an industrialist and a designer. In the 1930s he traveled to various oil fields in America, implementing the new method of oil well cementing he'd invented; the frequent travel led him to design his own suitcase, which was made from a then-newfangled material called aluminum.The suitcases caught on, and in 1938 Halliburton launched his own company to produce them. Movie star Marlene Dietrich was a fan, and either Halliburton form...

Hot Tip: You Can Access Free Tutorials on Coding, AutoCAD, Graphic Design and More Through LinkedIn Learning with a Public Library Card

On my daily Twitter morning scroll, I came across an interesting tweet by designer Amelie Lamont in response to a valid design education question for 2020: as more students come to class already knowing the basics of Adobe programs, what are good online resources for in-depth tutorials so teachers can direct students to learn those basics on their own and focus their class time on teaching more advanced lessons?Lamont's response to question led me to an exciting discovery: anyone with a New York...

Sketching/Rendering Challenge: Can You Make This Bugatti Look Ugly, Using These Specific Design Cues?

I just read a classic "design fail" story whose three stages you'll find familiar:1. Concept is unveiled, everyone loves it2. Upper management committee gets involved, requests conflicting design changes3. Revised design is a visual disaster, project gets canceledWe've all heard this story a million times, but this one is frustrating because only parts 1 and 2 have been visible to the public. No one knows what part 3 looked like.The object in question is the Bugatti Galibier, a four-door concept...

Animated Data Visualization of U.S. Population Growth Makes Americans Look Like a Virus

A moderator over at the DataArt subrebbit put together this data visualization of U.S. population growth from 1790 to 2010: I couldn't help but notice it looks like an animation of a virus spreading. Of course, that's probably (and in some cases literally) what it felt like to the Native Americans. It should be noted that the visualization does not show indigenous populations of any of the regions.The creator's data sources are listed here.

Annual Hieronymus Bosch parade on water celebrates the life and ideas of the 15th century artist

An annual parade of kinetic sculptures and other artworks and performances in a Dutch canal to celebrate the work of hometown hero Hieronymus Bosch? More of this in the world, please! Bosch is known for his symbolic paintings often tying in gruesome representations of the afterlife and human desire and fear. He is also regarded as one of the earliest genre painters, depicting common people and their everyday experiences. The annual Bosch Parade is described by organizers as “a theatrical and mus...

Salt Lake City’s Arts Funding Rewards Largest Organizations At Expense Of Small. Should The Formula Change?

That system sometimes “reward[s] bad behavior. We reward those who keep spending without regard” and sometimes “penalize organizations that take thoughtful, correct and prudent cuts to their budget and then they get less as a result.” – Salt Lake Tribune

These universal air-tight lids turn regular food bowls into vacuum-packed containers

There’s this hilariously true Seinfeld bit about milk. Buying milk isn’t a financial transaction… it’s a race between you and the milk’s expiration date. The minute you pay for the milk, the clock starts ticking and it’s just a matter of who gets to the milk first… you? Or that use-by date! This is true for practically every grocery item you buy. Avocados spoil in days, wine spoils in weeks, and dried food like nuts or cornflakes can spoil in months. We, as a species, waste 1.3 billion tonnes ...

Martin Filler: The Fascist Implications Of Trump’s Architectural Plans

This effective ban on modern architecture commissioned by the US government is horrifyingly reminiscent of Hitler’s insistence that public buildings in the Third Reich hew to the Classical tradition (though usually a stripped-down version of it) and that modern design, except for some industrial uses, was streng verboten (strictly forbidden). – New York Review of Books

LAMA’s Plan To Remake Its Museum Home Starts With A False Premise?

Zumthor’s single, integrated composition (now tan instead of black!), raised high above the grime of the city, is just a building. The strength of LACMA as it stands now is its complexity; it’s more like a city, and a vibrantly messy one at that. It’s connected to the street, the neighborhood and its varied parts, encouraging movement between structures, levels and plazas, whether you’re in the museum or not. It’s one of the few major destinations in L.A. that feels like a true urban en...

The Whitney Houston Hologram In Concert Is… Kinda Creepy

The result, at least in what producers were careful to call a dress rehearsal, is intermittently convincing. The hologram gets some of Houston’s physical tics right, and the lip-syncing — if that’s the right word for it — looks pretty real; detailed visual touches like that rippling fringe aid in the suspension of your disbelief. It certainly helps too that the live band cooks. But… – Los Angeles Times
