Royal Tenenbaum’s World of Futura – Notebook – Mark Simonson | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Matmi's insight:

Little look at the Wes Anderson's obsession with Futura Bold.

I wish more directors would put more of a focus on typography — instead of using the fallback to Trajan, or worse still subtitling your whole film in Papyrus (looking at you James Cameron).

Matmi's insight:

It divided the room this morning in it's aesthetics, but the message is outstanding.

Getting younger people to think about the over arching idea of design. Every item they use has been designed, every street, every piece of clothing — either for better or worse.

For younger generations to see the world around them in this way will help foster new designers, with a greater understanding of the of their environments — and the way they interact with items in their day to day.


(I was on the side it looking beautiful!)

Matmi's insight:

For anyone running a Tumblr blog, this is the best news ever!

My history with Tumblr has resulted in me finding work arounds for all the niggles and quirks with uploading animated gifs. Uploading a gif was an absolute nightmare.


If you gif contained too much red, was too high contrast, contained one too many frames or Tumblr just didn't like it.You would spend the next two hours losing you mind trying to guess the magic formula for uploading it. 


Seems all our petty issues have been solved! Gif can now contain up to and over 500 frames, high contrast (as in the above gif), no longer an issue and colour no longer has a say in the struggle!

GO FORTH AND GIF
