Amazing inspirational video-design from Apple you don't want to miss - design think different

Amazing inspirational video-design from Apple you don’t want to miss !

As many of you already are aware of, Apple has just shown the world their new Apple Watch and iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. All interesting products but most of all the Apple Watch in my opinion. That’s why I sat down and watched some videos and then it struck me how many beautiful and streamlined videos Apple has made – and yes a lot of funny ones too. I wanted to share them with you as inspiration for you design enthusiast out there 🙂

Apple amazing commercials and video design:

Google Material design principles video – only for design nerds!

27 Jun


Google had an event and a talk about “Material design principles”. Though very nerdy I thought it was very interesting thus it’s also what I do in my ComputerArts.dk company – I love working with design and arguing about why we choose to use the design we chose is a very interesting debate.

This is basically mostly interesting for other designers working with usability and UX design and passionated people who work with the analysis and psychology of design and functionality.

About the video Material design principles:

Matias Duarte, Nicholas Jitkoff, Jonathan Lee, Christian Robertson, Jon Wiley all talked about Material design in this video.

Design is the art of considered creation. As designers, our goal is to satisfy the diverse spectrum of human needs. As those needs evolve, so too must our designs, practices, and philosophies.

We challenged ourselves to create a visual language for our users that synthesizes the classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science. The result is material design: a cross-platform design system grounded in tactile reality, inspired by our study of paper and ink, yet open to imagination and magic.

In this session, design leads across Google discuss the key principles of material design, and set the stage for the later sessions focusing on interaction, motion and visual design.

Old fashioned Signwriting aka Reverse Glass, Gold Leaf Sign Artist

25 Jun

john mayer born and raised

Handcrafts and hard work pays off when you are this good at making designs. This kind of craftsmanship is incredible and I just enjoy how much detail he designs. The process of this kind of artwork is long and worthwhile! I wish I could make things that are this beautiful – but I will stick with Illustrator and Photoshop to give me the results I want. But we should never forget the old ways of doing things – it just puts everything in perspective and inspires. Enjoy the patience he has…

David A Smith is a name that has become synonymous in Sign-Writing and Glass gilding circles, with high quality, hand crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors.

In this short documentary, we reveal behind the scenes work, techniques and visions that Dave uses when carrying out his passion as a glass embosser – One of the few remaining traditional UK glass artists.

John Mayers album artwork is designed the old way with Reverse glass design

David A. Smith is a traditional sign-writer/designer specialising in high-quality ornamental hand-crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors. David recently produced a wonderful turn-of-the-century, trade-card styled album cover for popular American singer/songwriter John Mayer.

This film captures the ‘Behind The Scenes’ creation of the ‘Born & Raised’ and ‘Queen of California’ artwork, as well as 2 unique reverse glass panels, hand-crafted in England by David A. Smith.
