Designer Post about Other Design Agencies Ripping Off His Design..

I started reading this post that someone sent me (“I’m Tired Of Companies Ripping off our site, So I’m Calling Them Out”).. and I admit I was skeptical at first (“Well there are only so many popular styles at the moment.. surely he’s overreacting..”) but I opened each of the sites in a new tab and compared them side by side – WTH?!? It’s insane that a design company would rip off another designer, yes – yet how much MORE insane that they would use a ripped off design for their own website (ie talking about what innovative designers they are..) – I’m blown away. Check it out!

Android Design

This is an incredibly useful site for application designers + developers – the best I’ve seen – does an excellent job of explaining (and showing) designers the differences between what android users expect, vs iOS/iphone users…

Laws that Choke Creativity

One of my favorite TED talks speaks to the REMIX Manefesto culture and the distortion of copyright laws

I know it seems long but you don’t have to watch most of it – works just as well to let it be the background music to 20 minutes of surfing.. If nothing else (if you’re NOT interested in this topic) at least fast forward to 9min and 30 sec and watch a seriously funny 2 minutes of (illegal) remix entertainment ;)

lorem ipsum cuff

Cool thing: I want this soo badly.

“Life is better unscripted. Face the unknown wearing this wide stainless steel bracelet, laser-etched with centuries-old lorem ipsum scribed in Grad. For the designer who wants to say everything, and nothing, with a heavy dose of style.”

cradle to cradle

ok mcdonough is pretty pompous (and his nose whistles throughout the entire presentation) but also insanely bright – this is great sustainable design presentation

if you can’t handle mcdonough fo 20 minutes – or you’re short on time – skip to the last 1/4 of the video and at least watch the part about the “green” cities they’re building in china..
