These are some of the most interesting and beautiful things that we talked about in our studio this week. We show you the stuff that we have come across on instagram, the web or in real life and that inspires and excites us. And yes, sometimes we mingle in our own projects. We enjoy sharing it with our friends, colleagues and anyone interested. Below this week’s 5 tips, here our collected overview.
1: Here come the waterworks
2: Binary playlists
What to play when you need to focus but also want a perfect atmosphere of beats, bleeps and a pinch of IDM? Music For Programming has weekly playlists to keep you entertained (with an excellent site design!). The site is maintained by (the excellent producer) Datassette, the first episode was released in 2009. This incarnation of the site was built with Svelte, and the typeface is teh free font IBM Plex Mono (by Mike Abbink).
3: Paper light
In 1951 Isamu Noguchi visited the town of Gifu, Japan, known for its manufacture of lanterns and umbrellas from mulberry bark paper and bamboo. He called these works Akari, a term meaning light as illumination, but also implying the idea of weightlessness. Timeless and awesome till this day!
