Breaking Bad Poster Series



For the final episode of AMC’s Breaking Bad show, I (Shelby) created these two posters of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). If you’ve seen the show you’d immediately recognize the blue as a representation of Walter’s high-purity methamphetamine. Without spoiling the show, you’ll notice there is more blue crystal on Pinkman’s face than there is on Walt’s. In that lies the concept of these posters. The posters were created for fun using only a few images.

Designspiration Job Board

Over the last few months I (Shelby) have been working on a number of large updates to Designspiration. The first of these updates is the job board. The goal of the job board is to help creatives find career opportunities at great companies.

There were a number of challenging aspects of building this site addition, but the main one was how to handle mobile. It’s not something I’ve done a whole lot of and just to complicate things, a new grid needed to be developed for the updates to follow. The restructuring of the grid took just about as much time to figure out as it did to build the job board itself. I’ll follow up this post after the next updates to talk more about making Designspiration fast on mobile (hint, hint).

If you know an agency or company looking to hire, post a job or let them know about the job board. Also, follow the Designspiration jobs twitter @Dspnjobs for job updates.

Instagram Shapes Series







For the last month and a half I’ve been posting a series of found “shapes” on Instagram. The objects in the images are various places, signs, or vintage objects. Each image expresses my affection for simple, clean and effective design. It’s also about connecting with those lines; It’s about the feeling you get when viewing it.

It’s a challenge finding new compositions that really give off that spark, but it’s also fun. It’s also really interesting to see how others react to certain shapes and colors. Hope you enjoy!

Vintage Apple II Ads



Apple’s vintage print material during the late 70s to the 80s was sexy, and I do mean sexy. The first image here is a print ad for the Apple II. It’s really such a beautiful illustration; if only it could be brought back to life to be used again somehow. The second image is also an ad for the Apple II, this time using photography.

Barcelona Apple Store Architecture





The design of Apple Stores around the world don’t get enough attention for their design. We’ve all been in an Apple Store before and seen just how simple and effective the interior is. Even though sometimes it gets crowded, the interior design is impeccable. Here are images to prove it.
