Elegant Brand Identity for the Fashion Brand SOIA

Elegant Brand Identity for the Fashion Brand SOIA abduzeedo Oct 23, 2017 Nere Oria is a graphic designer from Deba, Spain with a very strong portfolio in visual and brand identity. I was quite surprise to see the projects she shared on her Behance profile. There's not a lot of information about them but the images speak for themselves. For the SOIA project I love how Nere explored a simple color and make the whole system work fine with it. I also have ...

Rolls-Royce is developing mini nuclear power plants

A consortium led by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, famous for its high-end vehicles, has crafted design plans for small-scale nuclear power plants. In a report anticipated to be released this week, the Rolls-Royce-led group is expected to receive approval to further develop its designs, which may eventually be implemented and constructed in the United Kingdom.

DIY Anti-Magpie-Attack Bicycle Helmet Designs

Australia is plagued with a unique danger to cyclists: Magpies. It sounds like a joke, but these fiercely territorial birds will patrol the area around their nest, and if a cyclist happens to pass, the bird will swoop down and relentlessly attack the cyclist's helmet. Here's an example: While the guy in the video is amused, magpie attacks are obviously quite dangerous, as startled cyclists can lose control and crash. And the swooping birds can do damage to both helmets and body parts wit...

The Lie That George Bernard Buried A Century Ago

Poverty is not a moral flaw, as anyone can see from Pygmalion, but that lie is like a vampire - it's undead, and returning now, a century later. Perhaps it's time to read Bernard Shaw again (and not just watch My Fair Lady).

Norman Rockwell's Children Sue Berkshire Museum To Stop The Sale Of Their Father's Art

The plaintiffs argue that the controversial plan - much derided in the art world, but seeming to steamroll ahead - "would violate the statute that established the museum, which requires it to maintain any gifts it receives for 'the people of Berkshire County and the general public.'" Besides, they say, the museum doesn't need the […]

Without The Humanities, Preparing For Endless War, Or Endless Work, Whichever

Marilynne Robinson: "There is an impulse behind the recent assaults on great institutions that is historically expressed as social engineering. The ideal worker will not have a head full of poetry, say the neo-Benthamites. It is assumed, of course, that he or she will be potentially omnicompetent in service to the ever-changing needs and demands […]

Five Atlanta Theatres Joined Forces To Fundraise In An Uncertain Economic Climate

Is it working? Yes, but in a different way than they'd hoped - one artistic director says, "It’s really instructive and inspiring to have regular contact with my colleagues, and that’s sharpening our artistic processes and our work" - and without nearly as much money as they'd wanted.

Darkened the top right corner after placing a pillow behind the lamp base shape and putting down some pattern behind the plate of figs to tie the colors together, top and bottom.  Added more to the bottom pattern.  Okay so far... But not completely happy with this one.  Which means more work to do?  Or put it in the "look at it later" bin? The colors IRL look dulled on the 300# paper - is this just a feature of the heavier paper?  Or of the colors I'm using?  Or?? [Author: RH Carpe...

The Departure Of Gustavo Arellano From The OC Weekly Points To The Endangered Status Of Latinx People In The Media

Though Arellano, who wrote the "Ask A Mexican" column, was with OC Weekly for 15 years, six as editor-in-chief, he was a rarity in the U.S. "According to census population estimates from 2016, Latinos account for almost 39% of the population of California and 18% of the total U.S. population, but remain conspicuously underrepresented in […]

Pacific Standard Time: How The Getty Climbed Down From The Hill

Basically, with the three (so far) iterations of Pacific Standard Time, the Getty has spread out across the city and, says architecture critic Christopher Knight, "has threaded itself into the contemporary cultural life of Los Angeles and Southern California.

Ivy is an epic 240-step hardware sequencer as sound installation

16 steps? 32? Phfft. How about 240 steps, with 240 sliders, over a space of 5 meters? That’s the latest vtol installation – and it’s breathtaking. Don’t even think of trying this at home, kids. It looks like a nightmare build – that’s just 240 sliders alone. But in action, you can watch dazzling parades of red LED lights as they make their way across its expanse. The project is called “Ivy,” and it’s the creation of Moscow’s Dmitry Morozov, aka vtol (an artist moniker named after the vertical-...

Trying To Keep Up On A 12-Hour Lunch Date With Joni Mitchell

It was a trip: "As urban centers all over America were banning smoking in public places, life for Joni Mitchell was still a noir film from the 40s, full of nicotine and screwball repartee. She kept smoking in public as long as she could, until she was eventually reduced to e-cigarettes.... She loved to be […]

The Ninety Art Galleries of the Stockholm Metro

At first blush, Stockholm was a pleasant place to spend a week. I began in its medieval Old Town, known locally as Gamla Stan, where I visited the Royal Palace and Stortorget, the oldest square in Stockholm. I toured the spectacular City Hall. Built of eight million bricks, this remarkable building is the venue for the Nobel Peace Prizes each year. I toured free museums, ate picnic lunches in the city’s attractive parks, and took boat tours around the 14 islands that make up the city. But i...
