The 1960s had some of the most interesting design. The typography and photography really pushed design in a beautiful direction. These 1960s Life Science book covers and graphics bring on such a wave of nostalgia. The typeface used in these was perfect.
The Pohutukawa tree is found in New Zealand and its crimson flower has long been part of the Christmas tradition. The house received its name because of its location around a dense Pohutukawa grove near the beach. The architects did an outstanding job mirroring the interior design, materials and the structure of the house to the complex form of the surrounding Pohutukawa trees.

It’s always have a blast shooting Tycho. This time around I (Shelby) shot the guys playing in Portland at the Crown Room and in Seattle at Bumbershoot. Instead of shooting mostly digital, I shot with my Yashica T4 exclusively. Something about about the very raw film and lack of manual exposure control on the camera really makes me never want to put it down. Also since it’s pocket-sized, I’m able to carry it around all the time.

The Ellis Residence is a place where most would go to retire away in the sub-urban countryside—Bainbridge Island near Seattle, Washington. Having been there a handful of times, I can assure you of its beauty.
The architects of the project, Coates Design, built this 2,560 sq. ft. contemporary home from materials of the pre-existing structure. They then implemented geothermal, photo-voltaic and solar technology solutions in an effort to reduce energy consumption. If you look closely in this photograph you can see one of the solar panels on the roof.

Albin Holmqvist, Gustav Johansson and Niklas Johansson are really killing it with these new EF Live the Language videos for EF International Language Centers. If you saw the first few, you’ll notice that they’ve really gone above and beyond with this new set. The new locations include Sydney, Australia; Vancouver, Canada; and Los Angeles, California.
Stay tuned for more work from these guys!
Paul Ibou was a great Belgian graphic designer who studied at the Royal Academy in Antwerp. In 1961, at age 23, he began working as a freelance designer under the pseudonym Ibou. The term Ibou meant “inventive book designer and publisher”. Also, in French Ibou also meant “owl” which initiated the beginnings of his large collection of owl symbols.
I’m not sharing this video because of the NFL or because of the athlete. I’m sharing this because of the important message related directly to success and finding it. You’ve heard it before: If you want to be on the same level as the people that you look up to, you’ll need to work really, really hard. The secrets to success are revealed through hard work.
If you’re going to be successful you’ve got to be willing to give up sleep.
This does not mean do not sleep. However, it does mean you need to prioritize. It is a metaphor for certain things in life that you do that can and quite possibly, need to be sacrificed.

Giving back to the community isn’t always as easy as finding and sharing great design. Sometimes it requires spending time doing tedious details of a Photoshop document… and that is exactly what I’ve done for you.
Here for your use is a Twitter UI Photoshop template perfect for mocking up your page before updating it live. The template is spot on with Twitter’s current layout. In the Psd, each of element set is grouped into its respective area based on the page. Each layer is also labeled and color coded. Twitter mockups should be a whole heck of a lot easier now, enjoy!
