Wallace Design

This is a Post Format Image and is for Landing pad illustration. A set of letters he did for his new nephew, Joel. His sister-in-law wanted a transportation theme. Printed on canvas, stretched around wooden frames.

Who studied German literature, German literature is, who is studying medicine, is doctor who studies physics is physics, but who studied philosophy, this will by no philosopher.

But I would say that the study of philosophy according to specialization may be an ideal preparation for the Informationsachitekten. For philosophy teaches one to work on and to the order of the terms.

A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Recording and reflecting on the work in progress

Intuitiveness can be broken down into a sort of ladder, or a cake with three layers: legibility at the top, metaphor in the middle, and skills at the bottom. By way of example, the concept of scrolling (which we hardly give any thought to) relies on all of them:

  1. It has to be legible. Legibility is about having cues or signals that are unambiguous and recognizable.
  2. Metaphor is the framing concept. In the case of scrolling, either you think of a scroll (the papyrus kind!), where one end rolls up and the other end unrolls to reveal more text, or you think of a window in space that you pan around.
  3. Skills are the motor skills that you pick up. It’s the physical ability to click your mouse on up/down arrows, or to slide your finger across the scroll wheel.

For better or worse, we live in a world of media invention. Instead of reusing a stable of forms over and over, it’s not much harder for us to create new ones. Let’s buy this theme.

Work Hard Stay Humble

“Work Hard Stay Humble” is a project that explores both process and materials. Development for the project began with sketches and then a digitized version.

The word piece was then enlarged and cut out of wood using shop tools. The final piece measures about six feet in both height and width and sits about three inches off the wall in our graphic design studio at the University of Florida.

If this collection of work is just a preview of what’s to come, I’m very excited to see where his design career takes him.

As we increasingly move past the point of sufficiency, manufacturers will continue to try filling ever-smaller niches. It becomes more about something you like/ want to use more than something you need. Is there room for one in your arsenal? Only you can answer that.  For philosophy teaches one to work on and to the order of the terms.

Where things come from

The internet has established itself as a repository of knowledge. The lion’s share of the world’s knowledge, experience and information resides on server farms and can be accessed by anyone at any time.

The work focuses on the shift of knowledge onto the internet and a question that arises from that shift: What will we still want to know when all information is permanently available?

The product is a two-minute trailer for an animated series on this theme of the transfer of knowledge. I am responsible for the script, the general form, the coordination of everyone involved and the project realisation.

Through an emotional grandfather/grandson relationship, the trailer illustrates how the transfer of knowledge has changed in the last three generations. At the same time, it deals with the difference between analogue and digital knowledge.

(Audio) Music Moment Of Clarity

This audio post is probably just amazing. All the white-hot techno DJs and producers, few are more molten right now than Anton Zaslavski, better known as Zedd. Zedd’s single “Clarity” (featuring London-based female vocalist Foxes).

When we entered The Fox, which is the unofficial sister-venue of SF’s The Warfield in look, decor, and size, Oliver was on, pounding the crowd with their heaviest brand of “Oliver” house music–edgy and powerful, but still very composed and endlessly sexy.

What is creativity really?

From a scientific perspective, creativity is your ability to think of something original from connections made between pre-existing ideas in your brain. These connections are controlled by neurotransmitters like adenosine, which alerts your brain when you’re running out of energy and reacts.

This got me wondering about coffee and beer and which one would actually help me be more creative and get work done. Hopefully, this will help you decide when it’s best to have that triple shot espresso or ice cold brew.

Getting Started with Programming

Code highlighted inside this post, so you can share easily code with your fellow readers.

Syntax highlighting is one strategy to improve the readability and context of the text; especially for code that spans several pages. The reader can easily ignore large sections of comments or code, depending on what they are looking for. Syntax highlighting also helps programmers find errors in their program.

JavaScript Code

HTML Markup

This is some HTML  code to present the markup:

[prism key=”code_snippet_html” language=”markup”]

We’re using a lightweight, robust and elegant syntax highlighting plugin called Prism code highlighter WordPressto help do a good job on this.
