Named as Pantone color of the year for 2019, Living Coral is an animating and life-affirming coral hue that signifies light-heartedness and positivity. The color is the kind that instantly makes one happy, with its touch of vibrance and warmth, and the minute you add it to a product, it stands out. Companies have, for long, used the coral color to make products look and feel youthful, and to make them add a splash of color to a space. Living Coral’s beauty especially lies in the fact that it goe...

Three concept designers visualize what the 2019 iPhone will look like

Leaks have become a very common part of Apple’s launch process. When you’re as big as Apple is, it’s difficult to keep everyone quiet. Somewhere in some part of the world, a factory worker clicks a picture of the iPhone Gorilla Glass being prototyped, or the aluminum frame being machined, and the rumors spread like wildfire. Helping bring some sort of depth to these rumors are concept phone designers, who quickly put together renders that, after a couple of rumors, end up looking exactly like th...

Opinion: Portland’s scooter success exposes stark double standard

Scooter riders in the mix of traffic in downtown Portland.(Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) *This post is by Joe Cortright and was originally published by City Observatory. Data shows Portland’s scooter experiment worked. Maybe it’s time to critically appraise the failed, 110-year experiment with cars. Why doesn’t PBOT apply the same approach to private cars that it has to scooters? Starting in July, Portland, Oregon began allowing fleets of e-scooters, as an experiment, to see how the...

Why Instagram is giving art galleries a run for their money

With over 1 billion users and growing, Instagram has emerged as an unexpected player in the art world, bypassing traditional gatekeepers such as galleries and auction houses to connect artists and collectors, one “like” at a time.Given that the popular social media platform was built to be a visually driven medium, it lends itself naturally to the showcase of artworks. “You can literally skip the galleries,” says Gabriel Dufourcq, a 36-year-old visual artist whose works have been exhibited at th...

Increasingly, we’re trying to find a reason for art.
