5 Proven Ways to Make New Friends as an Adult

Yes, it's hard, but it's not that hard. One thing that I wish I had known about adulthood before I, y'know, actually became an adult, is how lonely it can be.

157 Animated Minimalist Mid-Century Book Covers

Graphic and motion designer Henning M. Lederer can’t get enough of those minimalist midcentury book covers. Apparently, the over-the-top pulp scenarios that inspire leave Lederer cold. He’s drawn to the stark, the geometric, the abstract.
