Hello

I am passionate about many things. Some of which include photography, motorcycles, design and discovering craftsmanship.

Some of the projects I have documented here: Kawasaki KLR 650 Rebuild.

Marc Edwards continues to make great tools for the design community. From preview tools, writing on design, photoshop actions to an upcoming design application he has been a mainstay in the interactive design world. A resource that I find myself continually referencing. Now, Marc has come out with some really great icon templates.

There has been some imprecise tools here and there, but nothing that one could continually rely on to have the correct and latest sizes. I hope this set Marc has just released will fill this need.

I always enjoy reading breakdowns of typography. Seeing what works with a typeface, what doesn't work and the reasoning behind certain decisions is eye opening. There's a lot of smart details with the San Francisco typeface, that I think many don't notice.

"Swiss in CSS is a homage to the International Typographic Style and the designers that pioneered the ideas behind the influential design movement."

"Inspired by the great tradition of optical theatres, Holorama brings several iconic scenes from the history of cinema back to life. From Twin Peaks to Apocalypse Now, from E.T. to The Big Lebowski via Jason and the Argonauts, Holorama gives these famous scenes a third dimension using a simple holographic process based on a semi-transparent screen, mixing the image of an extremely faithfully built model with the characters extracted from the original scene."

Hwee-Boon Yar writes: "I wrote a couple of Ruby scripts and pulled charts from the iOS US app store using RSS feeds from Apple, downloaded the icons and extracted the primary colors used in each icon. I then wrote a Mac app to generate the numbers, charts and tables… The app icons for each chart are then stacked vertically. The taller a column is, the more commonly that color is used for icons in that chart."

"The recent release of Safari 9.0 brought a great new feature: pinned tabs. These tabs are locked to the lefthand side of your tab bar and stay in place, even when you open a new window or relaunch the browser."

Nothing new. Just make things work better.

"The New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission has released a staggeringly detailed historical dataset covering over 1.1 billion individual taxi trips in the city from January 2009 through June 2015. Taken as a whole, the detailed trip-level data is more than just a vast list of taxi pickup and drop off coordinates: it’s a story of New York. How bad is the rush hour traffic from Midtown to JFK? Where does the Bridge and Tunnel crowd hang out on Saturday nights? What time do investment bankers get to work? How has Uber changed the landscape for taxis? And could Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson have made it from 72nd and Broadway to Wall Street in less than 30 minutes?"

[The Apple Pencil] is indeed Apple white, and there are Apple-y things about it — for example, the fact that it is weighted, and won’t roll away on a table top, and always stops rolling with the word "Pencil" facing upward on its metal band

"Mile 20: Geoffrey Kamworor of Kenya moves to the front, covers next mile in 4:24 to reduce the lead pack of eight to three (Kamworor, Stanley Biwott, and Boston champ Lelisa Desisa)."

The level at which these runners are competing at is mind boggling.

"This image was made just 15 minutes after New Horizons’ closest approach to Pluto on July 14, 2015, as the spacecraft looked back at Pluto toward the sun. The wide-angle perspective of this view shows the deep haze layers of Pluto's atmosphere extending all the way around Pluto, revealing the silhouetted profiles of rugged plateaus on the night (left) side."

"In 1975, BMW began the Art Car Project, which paired the world's greatest living artists with the world's greatest marque, yielding one of the most unique and eclectic collections of art and cars ever. It was Alexander Calder and the E9 CSL that initiated the series, and after completion, the car was raced in the 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans. After the race, the car was retired, and has since served as a display for one of Calder's final pieces before his death in 1976."

"For those struggling to understand what Apple is up to, it might be best to imagine the Apple logo as a giant, rose gold-colored apple sculpture that's being polished beyond perfection, to some sort of ideal, a level of quality that is so undeniable that no competitor dares forget it."

@tylerjmartin—"PSA: you CAN store data locally on tvOS (500K w/NSUserDefaults). I've confirmed on device and source seems credible"

"This week, for the first time since it debuted in 2007, the Apple TV will welcome native games. But games are far from the only first for Apple's new set-top box. Behind the scenes, apps will run on an aggressive, intelligent operating system called tvOS. In many ways, tvOS is a radical rethinking of the fundamental nature of operating systems and our relationship with them. And because of that, its rules and limitations look odd."

“They are all computers,” [Phil Schiller] says. “Each one is offering computers something unique and each is made with a simple form that is pretty eternal. The job of the watch is to do more and more things on your wrist so that you don’t need to pick up your phone as often. The job of the phone is to do more and more things such that maybe you don’t need your iPad, and it should be always trying and striving to do that. The job of the iPad should be to be so powerful and capable that you never need a notebook. Like, Why do I need a notebook? I can add a keyboard! I can do all these things! The job of the notebook is to make it so you never need a desktop, right? It’s been doing this for a decade. So that leaves the poor desktop at the end of the line, What’s its job?”

The more I read about Jony Ive, the more I wish I could get coffee with him and talk about design and cars.
