And the Award Goes to…Mirror Show Management

I used to work at Martino Flynn. While there, besides having more fun than I ever thought possible at a job, I worked on a lot of web sites. One of those sites was for a company called Mirror Show Management. I was very pleased with the site, which was designed by my boy Scott Wolf. I created the Flash elements on the site and built the back-end custom content management system on which the site runs. All the hilarious and genius copy was written by the always cheery Duane and the videos were produced by the MF video guys.

The site has recently won RBJ’s Best of the Web award. I’m very happy for MSM and very proud to have been part of the team that created the site. Go check it out today, it’s really fun. I wish you could see the admin system as well since, in my humble opinion, it’s pretty bad ass.

How Do You Art Direct a Cow?

dairycows.jpg

DJ Stout has redesigned the magazine Dairy Today that is launching this month. In addition to a bold new logotype, the magazine will feature a stylized “portrait” of a dairy cow on the cover of each issue in an effort to differentiate it from its competitors.

I think these new covers are beautiful. Maybe it’s because I grew up around them, but I’ve always found cows to have a pastoral beauty. If you’ve ever spent time with them, you’ll know they’re very peaceful, mellow animals.

Brendan Dawes: Play-Doh as Interface

I saw this at FitC last year and it’s still mindblowingly awesome.

Brendan has more annoyingly creative stuff on his blog like bouncing pixels for popular posts.

Balls on Your Desk


via Fresh Arrival

These magnetic balls are meant to hold business cards, pictures, or anything else on your desk that you’d like to display in a fresh-to-death way. They’re also good for hours of fun–pull them apart and watch them slam back together. How cool. Watch the following video to see just how cool it gets.

Gosh Darn Knit

Etched Magnolias - Moleskine Cahier Journal Notebook - Gocco Printed - Lined
I have a confession to make. I love notebooks. I love getting new ones and flipping through them for the first time, when they’re crisp. I love filling them up with notes and changing their definition. What was once a bunch of blank pages becomes design notes, then it becomes job interview details, and on and on. When it’s full, it’s a little slice of your life all written down. As a blogger and web designer, I can now type probably twice as fast as I can write (assuming, that is, that I want to be able to read my writing later). There is something romantic and tactile about physically writing something down though.

That being said, I cruise Etsy very often for cool notebook designs. I hit the jackpot when I found goshdarnknit tonight. In addition to the image above, there are these illustrated styles:

Check it out. The notebooks are affordable and each one started as a moleskin so you know it’s quality.
