Studio Bites: No. 21

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

 

Colourful past

It’s hard to imagine a time when getting hold of a certain hue wasn’t a simple colour-picker click away. Which makes Harvard’s library of the world’s rarest colours a fascinating peek into the past.

 

 

Headspace

Some galleries barely have room for the crowds, with visitors craning their necks to take a look at what’s on show. On a different level in several regards is this interactive art project from Tezi Gabunia, which makes galleries so accessible that visitors become part of the exhibit.

 

 

Walking the walk

Mozilla has been at the heart of open source software for as long as most can remember, which makes their recent brand identity update initiative rather fitting. Everyone’s invited to help them shape a new tomorrow, applying open design principles to deliver ‘branding without walls’.

 

 

Oh-kay-goo-guhl

Doubtless most people still feel a little odd using voice search outside of their own homes. Though it might not address that particular quibble, this neat guide does demonstrate the vast range of questions an utterance of ‘OK Google’ can help find the answers to. Also on the subject of handy tools, Fontfit lets you easily try out a range of fonts in-situ on the website of your choice.

Albeit with a heavy fashion focus, this interesting use of Instagram to create a ‘never-ending moodboard‘ tags the accounts of umpteen sources of inspiration.

 


Same but different

Finally, prepare to scratch your head a little upon seeing this ambiguous cylinder optical illusion.
