Back from vacation in Colorado, here are some fresh links from the past week (or two).

  1. Did the “Uncanny ValleyKill Disney’s CGI Company
  2. In a perfect world, check out this sweet (unofficial) Rebrand of Home Depot
  3. We all love SCAD, but the School of Visual Arts has just launched two new degree programs: MFA in Products of Design and MFA in Design for Social Innovation.  Both sound very interesting.
  4. The Hee Haw Collective is a new project from Woodward Design, whose aim is to cre ate projects that design ers across their city could par tic i pate in col lab o ra tively. A great idea, if you ask me.

  6. April is such a deceptive month – Today is Tell a Lie Day – make it a good one
  7. Hard to believe that Fonts in Use has been around for 100 Days – Time flies when it’s only 100 days

  9. Check out the New Skype Heeadquarters
  10. Some sweet hand lettering for you to use – by Jeff Rodgers

James Donaldson

While he swears he won’t design for internet explorer and is unable to breathe without his iphone, James is generally an easy-going guy who can be convinced to do almost anything if there’ll be food involved.
