Geometric Design







Its hard not to notice the growing popularity of geometric shapes in design these days. A quick search on Behance and you really cant deny it. My laundry detergent even has a pattern of colored triangles on it (which is probably why I bought it). So at the risk of flooding the design community a little more, I have to share an iPad app I stumbled on the other day. Its called Poly.

Some before and after examples of what the app can do above.

Weekend Inspiration: Mr. Div

Posted by Jon M














Mr. Div is Tumblr I find myself (and apparently 30,000 other followers) visiting quite often, due to the amazing world of Animated GIF’s and Motion Graphics that inhabit within, designed by Matthew DiVito.

I intend to one day hire this man for my show visuals. Above are a few of my personal favorites.

Weekend Inspiration: Branding 10.000 Lakes

Posted by Jon M



































Branding 10,000 Lakes is a project or massive undertaking by Art Director and Graphic Designer Nicole Meyer.

Lake logos have a tendency to be, well, fairly ugly. This project was created to rethink what they could be.

One Minnesota Lake. One Logo. Every day.

Should only take a little over 27 years to hit ‘em all. Stay tuned and enjoy!

– Nicole Meyer

Who wants to get something similar going for California State Parks, which continue to be in danger of being affected by massive budget costs, some might even be closing soon? Just throwing it out there…

Geometry Daily

Posted by Jon M






















Stumbled upon this great Tumblr called Geometry Daily by German designer Tilman. Really enjoying how he’s chosen to display these creations. Plus, who doesn’t need a daily dose of geometry and minimal design?

Also, I’m currently revamping the Weekend Inspiration Posts. I’ll have one ready soon. Any ideas for subjects or topics, feel free to leave them in the comments below.
