There isn’t much (or any) information about these iPhone mock-ups by Fedra Malara but they definitely caught my eye. What I’ve interpreted it as is a redesigned lock screen, giving you all pertinent information without having to unlock your phone or access any programs. It’s definitely an interesting idea and something I’m sure Apple will get to eventually, but I’m not gonna hold my breath.
I think the colors are interesting though maybe not my first choices. I also love the playfulness of the type, with several different weights and sizes to create distinctions between the information presented. My guess would be that you would click on a certain section and it would expand, displaying the relevant info. While this may not be perfect I think it’s well executed and overall fun to think about.
I think I’ve only posted about a handful of pillows in the life of the blog but my friends over at Estudio Mopa have a worthy entry to the category. The pillow, which someone is trying to call a “limited edition art cushion,” is titled Until the End of Life and features an awesome looking whale with all kinds of little bits and details making up his body. The colors and textures are really great and definitely give the design a lot of life.

Oh man, oh man. This week’s Mixcast is really late but here it is and it’s a gem. There wasn’t a theme again this week, just some good ol’ tunes that I’ve been enjoying and I think you should hear. The first half is pretty dance-y, I think it’s at least 20 minutes of solid music, so those of you who like dancing should really enjoy the first part. The second half is a bit more straight forward rock but there’s some good songs on there as well.
I hope you enjoy this week’s Mixcast and I think next week’s is going to have a theme… and it might be centered around Jesus. You’ll just have to trust me on this one.
Here’s this week’s tracklist:
Instant Karma by John Lennon
Of Moons, Birds and Monsters (Holy Ghost! Remix) by MGMT
We Are The Dead #1 by Vasco Cesaretti
Sometimes by Miami Horror
Deep Routes by Toro Y Moi
Spring (Air France Remix) by Saint Etienne
Theologians by Wilco
Horchata by Vampire Weekend
Stunner Shades in Heaven by Princeton
Vermillion by Mercury Rev
First Song for B by Devendra Banhart
When I popped into the Arkitip shop a few weeks ago I mentioned that they had been working on some exciting things but I couldn’t discuss any of those things… This is one of them. For the opening of the Apple store at the Louvre, Arkitip and Incase have teamed up with André to create a rather handsome laptop case to celebrate the event. The colors chosen make it look like an old attache case and the oxford lining makes it a truly classy affair. Wonderful work from all parties involved, as usual.
There’s also an iPhone case as well, if that’s your thing.
I’m a big believer in the fact that a good workspace can make all the difference in your attitude and productivity. So taking a peak at the studio fo Australian firm Bark Design Architects I’d wager that they get a shitload of amazing work done. The building is made up of steel, glass and plywood and sits elevated upon a hill which has coastal views. The workspace also doubles as a place to stay as well, with areas for eating, sleeping and bathing.
I can only imagine working in a space like this, I’m honestly not sure if I could think of a better place to work in. I love all the natural light, the tall ceilings and the copious amount of room to work in. One day I’ll hopefully work in something at least a quarter as cool as this.
