Graphic Design Trends of 2019

Bold typography Type is a fundamental part of graphic design. As such, it’s no surprise every year that designers take type in a different direction. Recently we’ve noted an increase in the use of type as a bold, often primary element in design. This goes along with the general trend of design becoming more simple and direct. When you look at the current state of media, the use of bold typography makes sense. With advertisers and marketers fighting to get their message across, using stark, in-y...

Khosla GP launches Bling Capital to help seed-stage startups build products

At Facebook, where he was the first-ever director of platform, they called him Bling. At YouTube the following year, they still called him Bling. At Google in 2010, they continued to call him Bling. Even at Khosla Ventures, where Ben Ling has been a general partner for the past five years, the nickname stuck. It was only natural that Bling Capital would be the name of his debut venture capital fund, a $60 million seed-stage vehicle backed by Marissa Mayer, Nellie and Max Levchin, Yelp CEO Jer...

Tech giants offer empty apologies because users can’t quit

A true apology consists of a sincere acknowledgement of wrong-doing, a show of empathic remorse for why you wronged and the harm it caused, and a promise of restitution by improving ones actions to make things right. Without the follow-through, saying sorry isn’t an apology, it’s a hollow ploy for forgiveness. That’s the kind of “sorry” we’re getting from tech giants — an attempt to quell bad PR and placate the afflicted, often without the systemic change necessary to prevent repeated problems. ...

Electric scooter startup Bird has become a punchline after raising $400 million in 4 months, but these investors explain why scooters are no joke

Electric scooter-sharing company Bird has raised $400 million in four months to cover the streets and sidewalks of America with scooters. Plenty of people in Silicon Valley have been scratching their heads over the $2 billion valuation that Bird has gained in a year since founding.

#OptOutside Returns for Third Year of REI-Sponsored Day Without Shopping

REI is not only closing its stores, website and offices today to enourage its employees to #OptOutside, it has influenced more people and stores than ever to do the same—which pretty much qualifies it as a bona fide movement.

These are the most powerful puppies in tech

With company cultures that celebrate—and even encourage—employees bringing their dogs to work, it's no wonder that many of tech's biggest players are also parents to the cutest creatures known to man.  From Google to Salesforce, dogs have taken over the hearts and Instagrams of the industry's most powerful leaders. Sure these people are setting the agenda for global business and politics, but even billionaires need a little TLC (tender loving cuddles).  And did we mention these dogs are darn cut...
