This is it!
The missing link
A huge discussion about the lack of a “real web design” application at JSM’s blog. A subject that’s close to the heart of anyone juggling several applications in their design process, but also one that has people pull in different directions mostly because they a) either understand design and development in their own way or/and b) follow various workflows. Take a look at...

If Helvetica is Julia Roberts - pretty enough - then Univers is Uma Thurman -...– BBC News - Do typefaces really matter? Before Vodafone got their own typeface, they were using Helvetica and doing work for them I had to use it for years. One may suspect that my dislike is based on overdosing, but I doubt.

Still Waters by Jim White →
This made me whole again.
My conscience hath a thousand several tongues, And every tongue brings in a several tale, And every tale condemns me for a villain. Perjury, perjury, in the highest degree, Murder, stern murder, in the direst degree, All several sins, all used in each degree, Throng to the bar, crying all, ‘Guilty! Guilty!’ I shall despair. There is no creature loves me; And if I die, no soul will pity...

First Queensryche song I ever heard. Only back then I didn’t know it was them. Crank it up!
Recently I’ve been following the blog on Alice In Chains’s website. First it was to check how their gig in Sofia went, but then I kept returning mostly because it was so entertaining. Apparently penned by a crew member going by the name of Baldy, it tells of the band’s road life and vividly describes the places and people they — or rather — he sees. It’s very...

Nature has the advantage of being much ahead of us time-wise so it creates stuff through fitting it, painfully slowly, over time and in harmony. We are in a hurry because we don’t have that time.

Exactly! The observation is correct and I have been observing a steady trend in food package design towards concepts that don’t speak the language of what’s inside. The author of the article sees a conflict between “design that pleases” and “design that works”, and I see no logic in this separation. There would be logic if design was solely an exercise in...
