Dieter Rams Lists the 10 Timeless Principles of Good Design–Backed by Music by Brian Eno

Nearly all of us have heard the dictum "Less, but better," and nearly all of us have used Braun products. But how many of us know that both of those owe their considerable popularity to the same man? After studying architecture, interior decoration, and carpentry, the German industrial designer Dieter Rams spent 40 years at Braun, most of them as the company's chief design officer. There he created such hits as the 606 universal shelving system, the SK61 record player, and the ET66 calculat...

Watch The Journey, the New Ridley Scott Short Film Teased During the Super Bowl

Established in 1933, Turkish Airlines celebrated its 85th anniversary last year with a higher profile than ever before.

This year found those two institutions brought together by another, the Super Bowl, which offered the occasion to air a thirty-second teaser for The Journey, a six-minute film commissioned by Turkish Airlines and directed by Scott.

YC-backed Our World in Data wants you to know what’s changing about the planet

News is exhausting. Mexican murders are sky-high. Ebola is ravaging the eastern Congo. China is erasing an entire culture of Islam from its Western hinterlands. That news — negative and intense though it is — can easily occlude the many positive, longer term stories that are fundamental drivers of the world. Africa is reaching new levels of prosperity. Violence around the world is in retreat. Famine is down, a lot. These trends are present, but getting high-quality data around them and correctly...

Are Smartphones Necessary Anymore?

When I was researching Digital Minimalism, I came across an interesting article written by Vlad Savov for The Verge. It was titled: “It’s time to bring back the dumb phone.” I’ve both read and written numerous articles about the negative aspects of the modern smartphone, and have interviewed many people who have returned to a simpler alternative with few regrets. But what caught my attention about Savov’s piece was the following new (to me) argument he made in favor of stepping back ...

My 2018 Christmas Wishlist

I've made my list and I've checked it twice. I love giving gifts, I love the Christmas season, and I love making lists. So December is here and I've already made my list of things I want to give all my friends and family.

Stream 48 Classic & Contemporary German Films Free Online: From Fritz Lang’s Metropolis to Margarethe von Trotta’s Hannah Arendt

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’ve seen the German Expressionist classic The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. As soon as Robert Weine’s 1920 film came out, it was described as essential. Or as one reviewer wrote, “so-called cultured people who fail to see it are neglecting their education.” There are dozens more German films to which that sentence might apply. Films from the country’s explosive Weimar moment—which also produced Metropolis, Nosferatu, M, Faust, etc.—to those of the New...

YD Talks: With Marissa Louie. Designer, Entrepreneur, and Creator of Animoodles

It’s rare to come across someone who’s so intensely passionate about something, it spills over. You wouldn’t expect a 27 (turning 28 in January) year old man to be enraptured by plush toys, but just talking to Marissa Louie for a bit has me emotionally invested in the Animoodles, a series of stuffed toy animals with magnetically detachable limbs and heads that can be swapped to create animal hybrids.I met Marissa through Designer’s Guild, a forum created by her on Facebook for designers to int...

10 Reasons Why Fall is the Best Season

It’s officially October, which means that fall is in full swing. This also means that it is, hands down, the greatest season of the year. Sure, the other seasons are also great--winter is full of Christmas, hot chocolate, and snow, spring is the time of flowers and warm weather, and summer means no school and lots of time at the beach or pool. And although each season has its own unique qualities, there is no season quite like fall. It’s the perfect time of the year, and I'll give you 10 reasons...

Paul McCartney Breaks Down His Most Famous Songs and Answers Most-Asked Fan Questions in Two New Videos

Paul McCartney has played it safe for decades, relying on the brilliance of his songwriting and musicianship, which no one ever doubts and so he never has to prove. His songs usually fall into a formula familiar from Beatles’ days: “silly love songs,” writes Stephen Earlewine at Pitchfork, “mini-suites… polite political protests, and old-fashioned rockers.” But while the Beatles had each other, the experiments of George Martin, LSD, transcendental meditation, and a moment of perfect cult...

When Steve Jobs Taught Andy Warhol to Make Art on the Very First Macintosh (1984)

When Andy Warhol first became famous, few knew what to make of his art. When Apple first released the Macintosh — dramatically promoted with that Ridley Scott Super Bowl commercial — few knew what to make of it either. The year was 1984, when almost nobody had seen a graphical user interface or even a mouse, let alone used them, and the Macintosh looked as strange and compelling when it entered the computing scene as Warhol did when he entered the art scene. Both seemed so casually to re...

Native Lands: An Interactive Map Reveals the Indigenous Lands on Which Modern Nations Were Built

“Now when I was a little chap I had a passion for maps. I would look for hours at South America, or Africa, or Australia, and lose myself in the all the glories of exploration. At that time there were many blank spaces on the earth, and when I saw one that looked particularly inviting on a map (but they all look that) I would put my finger on it and say, ‘When I grow up I will go there.’”                      —Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness In his post-WWII historical survey, The Story of Map...

The secret to rendering white products on white backgrounds

I usually never recommend rendering any sort of product on a white background unless it’s truly necessary. When rendering, the background plays an important role along with the foreground, helping complement/balance it, or create a heavy contrast (that’s usually the photographer or designer’s call), but a white background can generally feel slightly template-ish. The real problem, however, is rendering white on white. A white product on a white background can usually be a nightmare because the...

On Facebook’s Unique Weakness

An Anti-Social Response Last week, Facebook reported weaker than expected second quarter earnings and warned investors to expect diminished growth. As a result, its stock promptly fell 19%, wiping out over $120 billion in market capitalization. No publicly traded US company has ever lost more dollar value in a single day. This seems like bad news for the social media giant, perhaps the first indication that its struggles over the past couple of years are catching up to its bottom line. But not ...

The Peacock in Menlo Park: On Open Offices and Signaling Theory

An Open Discussion A couple weeks ago, I wrote about a new study that took a careful look at interactions in an open office. It found, contrary to popular belief, that moving to an open format made people less likely to talk face-to-face with their coworkers, and more likely to instead send distracting digital messages. Not surprisingly, these changes led to lower productivity. This post sparked an interesting discussion in the comment section and my personal inbox on the question of why so man...
