Nerdy shit.

Hello everyone, I’ve been traveling abroad for the past month, and sadly too busy to post. My apologies. I’m back and thought it fitting to start off with a post about an airline. Enjoy.

Anna Kövecses, in colaboration with Boulder, Colorado based Victors and Spoils put together this theoretical redesign for struggling American Airlines. It’s main focus is to convey an aura of safety. An approach that seems so intuitive, yet I’ve never seen it done before. Read more about the project, and the controversial agency that commissioned the work on fastcodesigns.com.

Want to turn your iPhone into an underwater camera? For a mere $60, you can do just that. The guys over at photojojo, are selling this little waterproof case that allows you to submerge your phone in water while still being able to use the touch screen functionality. Pretty great.

The guys over at Wander Blog decided to start this postcard project that asked illustrators to imagine a postcard from everywhere and nowhere at once. Here are a few of my favorites. Go check out their site to see more and download the art as an iPhone or iPad background.

We’re all familiar with Etsy and Threadless, sites that make it easy to set up an online store front, but now there’s a new shop in town, Shop Locket. This site is built off of the premise that you’ve more than likely already established an online presence, so why create yet another online space for yourself? Shop Locket allows users to essentially create widgets for their products that can then be embedded into their existing online social profile/s. It’s an interesting concept that is probably better explained in this video.

Farmer & Famer

Farmer & Farmer is an interesting little site that serves up essays relating to humans and technology. It’s curated by Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar, and written by leaders in technology and the arts.

“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

Anthm is an app that lets people control the music in the places they go. It’s pretty much a juke box in your hand. Launch the app, start a party then you and your friends can add music into one playlist. No need to use your own library of music, Anthm will stream all the music for you straight from Rdio.
