New Yorker's Amazing Cover: Bert and Ernies' "Moment of Joy"

New Yorker's Amazing Cover: Bert and Ernies' "Moment of Joy" | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

The New Yorker celebrated the Supreme Court's historic rulings on gay marriage with one of its most awesome covers of all time. It marked the moment by featuring what many people consider to be one of the most famous gay couples in pop culture: Bert and Ernie.

 

In the magazine's cover, titled "Bert and Ernie's Moment Of Joy," the two Sesame Street characters are shown snuggling together on the couch as they watch the landmark Supreme Court rulings on television.

 

The magazine wrote that the cover artist, named Jack Hunter, originally submitted the image, unsolicited, to a Tumblr. "It's amazing to witness how attitudes on gay rights have evolved in my lifetime," he told the New Yorker's Culture Desk. "This is great for our kids, a moment we can all celebrate."

Points - The Most Advanced Directional Sign on Earth

Points - The Most Advanced Directional Sign on Earth | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Brooklyn-based creative agency Breakfast spawned out of the desire to create value-driven products that harnesses information from the web to in turn change how people interact with the surrounding world. Its latest creation Points – an intelligent street sign – is without a doubt a culmination of said ethos. At first Points resembles a traditional three-armed street sign, pointing towards a nearby destination. It’s when the arms begin to rotate around towards new directions and the text begins to update that one realizes they are in the midst of something truly innovative. This creation leverages content from Foursquare, Twitter, RSS feeds and many other online sources to display anything the internet can provide, including sports scores, brand events, concerts, weather, transit updates and much more. Best of all, it points you in the direction of where to go.

Newly-Launched “Beautiful Mind” Neuro-Design Lab

Newly-Launched “Beautiful Mind” Neuro-Design Lab | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Although brilliant Russel Crowe has nothing to do with the endeavour, the launch of the new creative agency Beautil Mind is a noteworthy event indeed—the first “neuro-design lab” of its kind in the UK (and in the world) is something worth to be aware of.

 

Founded by the brand consultancy Purpose in collaboration with internationally acclaimed neuroscientist Dr Beau Lotto,  Beautiful Mind brings together the latest knowledge in neuroscience, behavioural science and design thinking to offer brands a new way of looking at customer and client behaviours.  As the team says,  they first ask the right questions, then use scientific methodologies to provide transformative answers—that’s how they work. They will deliver three types of services to clients: talks, workshops and tailored primary research programmes.

Design Principles for News Apps & Graphics

Design Principles for News Apps & Graphics | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

While the tools and techniques to present large datasets in graphics and news apps may differ from project to project, the basic design principles stay pretty much the same. Many of these principles should seem pretty familiar – even if you’ve never studied design formally, you probably know some of them instinctively. Let’s name them, explain why they work and see how other designers, especially news designers, use them. Once you recognize the concepts, you’ll become more conscious of when and how to use them in your own projects.

Two university art professors create modern-day version of camera lucida

Two university art professors create modern-day version of camera lucida | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Two university art professors are determined to bring a classic 19th-century device back into use.

 

(...)

 

For those of you who have no idea what a camera lucida is, you’re not alone. The quick version is this: A camera lucida is basically a prism on a stick that allows artists to trace what they see. The device superimposes a subject onto a piece of paper, allowing artists to simultaneously see their hand and their subject, which helps them to create a hyper-accurate sketch of what they’re looking at. Created in 1807, the drawing tool was popular throughout the early 19th century with artists, architects, scientists or anyone who needed to draw a life-like image. Then photography came along. Though the camera lucida was still a well-functioning device, it was relegated to an industrial tool and fell out of use…

 

Until today. Garcia and Levin’s NeoLucida Kickstarter campaign finished recently, surpassing its $15,000 goal. In fact, they raised nearly 30 times the funding they had originally asked for, meaning thousands of people will soon have their very own NeoLucida to draw with.

60 Ingenious Knot Designs From The “Man On Wire”

60 Ingenious Knot Designs From The “Man On Wire” | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

When Philippe Petit stepped out on a high-wire illegally strung between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in 1974 and performed his act, his exploit became folkloric.

 

After years of hands-on research, Petit recently authored Why Knot? How to Tie More Than Sixty Ingenious, Useful, Beautiful, Lifesaving and Secure Knots. Petit’s practical sketches and artful drawings illustrate original methods and provide clear, clever tying instructions. On the cover is a meter of red cord, so the reader can “jump right in” and start tying.

“Knots are pure design in three dimensions,”

 

Petit explains. “There is nothing decorative. All elements serve their purpose.”

Icon

Icon | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Many of you will be familiar with the logo design of the 'handicapped' signage that is used across the world (shown below). Featuring a stick figure in a wheelchair with a blue-and-white colour scheme, the old logo has been criticised as portraying the handicapped as 'passive'.

A design team at Gordon College, Massachusetts took it upon themselves to create a new logo that aims to change the old logo's connotations. Showcasing a stick figure leaning forward and active, the new logo still maintains the traditional blue-and-white colour scheme. The Accessible Icon Project website has a detailed breakdown of how the design was put together.
