Its natural to want to over design. I think that much of the time the struggle of an artist and a designer is fought against their own creative obsession. You learn a ton of skills, you develop your own form of expression, but then you try your best to hone it and control it. There […]
Hi crew! I want to update you all on what I’ve been up. Design That’s IT is fully in tact, but I am taking this experiment on a slightly new course. As you know, the site is predicated around showing off the most interesting accomplishments in design, tech, and business that I have noticed in […]
I’ve really enjoyed this journey with Design That’s It. I’m considered a slightly major design/brand change that might better represent what this blog is all about. I’m considered rebranding DTI to “min”…. short for minimal, or minimalism. I’ve been thinking about this for quite some time now and I’d rather do it sooner than later. […]
Think of your favorite work and your favorite creative heroes. What did they miss? What didn’t they make? What could’ve been made better? If they were still alive, what would they be making today? If all your favorite makers got together and collaborated, what would they make with you leading the crew? Go make that […]
Mirrorless cameras are quickly replacing traditional DSLRs in the professional camera industry. The power and versatility of today’s smartphone cameras have exposed Nikon and Canon’s lack of innovation. DSLRs just seem like big blocks of rubber and metal that can take slightly better photos than flagship smartphones (as far as the average customer is concerned). […]
VSCO is an Instagram for minimalists. Instagram is a great social networking idea. Its truly captured the generation of smartphone photography. But like all successful social platforms, its been infiltrated by the others. The others are people that have habits that do not align with the intentions of the platform. For Instagram, these are people […]
We are reaching a point of interest in the world of hardware engineering and industrial design. For decades desktop computers have dominated when it comes to advanced productivity. But the world is mobilizing and work is becoming less and less local. Desktops are also huge energy consumption devices, and a lot of people may not […]
Knolling is the process of arranging like objects in parallel or 90 degree angles as a method of organization. Its been a while. Stay organized my friends!
Hey guys! I’m starting a serious called “Color”. Color is super important in so many aspects of life that I feel are overlooked. But specifically in regards to design, as we explore the depths of great design, I thought it would be great to tackle each primary color and the monochromes as it relates to […]
“There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.” Milton Glaser Asus is among the many Windows hardware OEM’s that are beginning to invest more in quality design. The Zenbook 3, recently unveiled at Computex 2016, is an engineering and design marvel. It […]
What is flat design, why has it taken over?
Today is an exciting day for me because I get to write about my favorite 3D designer. His name is Dieter Rams, and he is arguably one of the top 5 most influential modern designers in the world. German born, Dieter had an unconventional introduction to the world of design. He studied architecture at Wiesbaden […]
I’m transforming the design of Design That’s it to more of a minimalistic monochrome appeal. Enjoy
Hi guys, check out this awesome talk by one of today’s and my personal favorite Graphic Designer. He gives a short talk at Google on his design process with MIT Media Lab. Really insightful 🙂
I mentioned in my CodeAcademy post that every seemingly mundane aspect of human existence is being smartized. Well, Helix Sleep is a perfect example of this paradigm shift. Not only that, Helix Sleep is placing a huge emphasis on quality design in the mattress buying process. Yea, their vision does away with mattress warehouse and its […]
Nothing is truly original. Everything piggybacks off of everything to some degree. The funniest thing about creativity is that its actually no more than good thievery masked as originality. The times when we catch our selves saying, “they stole that design from blabadeebla” only serve as evidence that whatever was been stolen was poorly implemented. Every curve, colorway, […]
Knolling is the process of arranging related objects in parallel or 90-degree angles as a method of organization. Let us knoll with relentless enthusiasm. Let us show the world that life is better when like objects are neatly aligned. Enjoy guys!
Hey Guys… Yesterday, today, and tomorrow are the days of E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo hosted in CA. In short, its an event for the whole video game world to show what they have been working on for the past few years. I’ve tuned in to every E3 event sense 2008. I will post a […]
Knolling is the process of arranging like objects in parallel or 90 degree angles as a method of organization. YAY! Let the knolling resume 🙂
Bear with me guys. My passion for design stretches further then my sparatic commentary on D_T_I. I am actually trying to turn my passion for both design and tech and business into a career. And so I have been trying to refine my design skills for the past year or so. This is something I […]
Art and Tech are best friends. Let me explain….
Thank God for Google Drive. I’ve found another high school creative writing class poem. Enjoy 🙂 Inch closer And Cuff your cold hand around your nerveless ear Block the sounds from getting in The dark ocean whisperers its deepest secrets to you under oath the ripples are steady, but a storm is near says the […]
