Take a journey back to a time to before CGI, when pyrotechnics and model-making were the chief tools in science fiction’s special effects. From Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey to Gerry Anderson’s UFO and Space: 1999, one man was central in setting the standard for the Star Wars enterprise to come… (Source)

Quote of the Day

"Mediocrity"? I agree for the most part, but Myslewski makes it sound as though the only reason the iPad dominates the tablet-market is because everyone is merely jumping on the Apple bandwagon. What makes Apple great, however, is not that it lacks interest in specs, as if it neglects these elements. Apple does not ignoretechnical specifications, rather it chooses to forgo the latest, fastest technology in the spirit of maintaining other elements of the user experience, such as its virtually unrivaled battery life. via

Becoming a better designer is a lot like becoming a better soccer player. You have to play a lot. If you don’t play you don’t gain experience, you don’t train your muscle memory, and you don’t get better. But you can only go so far on your own. Young players who become excellent get better from playing and being coached. Becoming a better designer requires you to work with clients and be mentored along the way. via

What is Design?

How do I get a huge hunk of metal in the air to fly across the ocean? I must design a way. How do I get someone to signup for my service they don’t know anything about? I must design a way. Both of the questions could be answered with ugly solutions. They could find old and archaic ways to solve the problems, but that isn’t what design is about. The elegant solution takes into account all aspects of the design. Taking the practical solution, the function, and adding the aesthetically appealing aspect to it, the form, and there you have a solution to the problem of ‘how do I?’
