Studio Bites: No. 14

Each week we ask our team to select something they’ve seen or read that is inspiring, interesting, or just plain intriguing. At our creative breakfast we meet over coffee and croissants to share and discuss what everyone brought to the table.

 

Frame of reference

Apparently you never forget how to ride a bike, but drawing one is quite a different matter. Asking his friends to draw a bike from memory, Gianluca Gimini has turned the comical creations into realistic renderings.

 

 

Superscript

An interesting potted history on the use of all-caps in warnings and legal docs, and how certain typography choices could save a life.

 

 

 

Canny valley

A brilliantly insightful article written by the ex-VP of Design for Twitter, with learnings aplenty for product design and management from his 3 years in San Fran.

 

 

Happy accidents

An archive of beautiful and strange glitch art, created when computer says ‘no’.

 

 

One man’s trash

On the subject of unwanted works of art, this ‘curated graveyard of both good and bad ideas’ contains some fantastic work that – for whatever reason – didn’t make the grade.

 

 

Nailed it

Fingernails can be made to look amazing when there are just 10 of them (8 if we’re doing the whole ‘thumb’ thing). Take a few thousand more and a fistful of artistic vision and you have Frances Goodman’s amazing work.
