Where we’ve been this week…
1. Creonomy I have no idea what Creonomy means (no entry found on the online dictionary). But it’s a very cool graphics/design/interesting and quirky stuff blog by Corrado Alesso and Nicolo Borghi. Creonomy is the name of their company. It’s a “small startup creating easy-to-use web-based collaboration software for the creative community. We love the work of web, graphic and logo designers and we want to develop software to make their life easier.” No idea what they actually do but I love their work! Where to start: The interview with publisher Charlotte and Peter Fiells, who we also interviewed today.
2. Matt: Unlucky in Cards A blog from the guy who was the founding developer of WordPress, the blogging software that runs millions of sites around the world – including this one. Where to start: A great link to plants in your home office.
3. Clouds 365 Project You’ve got to love this. Clouds. Lots and lots of clouds. Cloud 365 is the work of multimedia artist Kelly DeLay. He shoots clouds each day and posts them to this site. He did it for a year and now he’s doing it for another year. And all I can say is it is the perfect place to take a break from your work. Writer’s block? Check it out. It’s just lovely. Where to start: Today.
4. I Love Typography One man’s obsession becomes yours with this blog. Japan-based John Boardley shares his passion for type…yep, type. Check it out and you’ll get it. Where to start: The origins of abc.
5. GOOD What is GOOD? One of those slightly annoying media phenomenons that is hard to pin down. It describes itself as an “integrated media platform for people who want to live well and do good. We are a company and community for the people, businesses, and NGOs moving the world forward. GOOD’s mission is to provide content, experiences, and utilities to serve this community.” Sounds good, no? They’ve got a website and a magazine. Where to start: An excellent piece by Alissa Walker on women in industrial design.
