NEW PASSIONS

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 […]

Min or Naw

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. […]

VSCO

VSCO is an Instagram for minimalists. Instagram is a great social networking idea. Its truly captured the generation of smartphone photography.

German born, Dieter had an unconventional introduction to the world of design. He studied architecture at Wiesbaden […]

HELIX DESIGNS YOUR SLUMBER

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 […]

That is Really Thin

Minimalism is reaching the masses, or at least that is the underlying notion to some of the most recent entrepreneurial efforts. One of the basic roles of an engineer is to identify an issue in society and to find a method of fixing the issue. The issue hear, is that people tend to stack up […]
