I do a bit of digital design. I think this is going to change UI completely.
I’m all for the analogue… Shooting on film, design on paper, painting on canvas, playing music on instruments instead of computers. But, Paper by 53 has got my attention. The clip makes it look good, as clips are supposed to. But, a friend has tried it and is rating how it feels to use. Could make my moleskin obsolete… And, now that I think about it, it would be awesome for quick wireframing or sketches in meetings or on the go. Hmm.
Security cameras are main object of the modern cities. It may not suitable for the privacy but the privacy is not important for some security issues in areas that may need monitoring such as banks, airports, military zones, and big stores etc.

“What began as a small hobby for New York-based designer, Sandee Shin, exploded into an entire line of avant-garde jewelry. Armor Jewelry is an arsenal of high fashion jewelry that dances between understated minimalism and the highly conceptual edge of fashion.
Launching in 2009, each piece of the collection is a unique sculpture for the body that reflects the lifestyles of those who aren’t afraid to push boundaries. Armor Jewelry is a hybrid of soft, subtle draping and a mix of sexy chain materials. Each metal chain texture is carefully chosen to reflect the concept and design of the final product. Materials are then deconstructed and reconfigured to create silhouettes that effortlessly add edge and elegance to any outfit. Each piece can hold it’s own with a simple white tee or be a crowning piece over a gown.
Shin’s background in performance art and design influences her choices in texture and draping. Every jewelry design is a personal work of art for Shin, and every piece is made-to-order and hand crafted with attention to every detail.”
The Qallery is in essence a new take on an urban gallery. It aims to encourage viewers to embrace the technology at their fingertips and explore and learn about new artists. QR codes will be pasted up throughout laneways and along the street, snap a shot and find yourself at the QR gallery!
QR codes will be pasted up as the ‘art’ in the outdoor setting. Once users shoot the codes on their phones they will then be directed to the qallery web site where the images can be viewed, detailed and downloaded. Launched at the 2011 Beaufort Street Festival, The Qallery will continue indefinitely encouraging artists from here, there and anywhere to get involved!
The Qallery would love you to submit a piece of work – newly designed or one from the vault.

Thule is a premium brand used globally for a wide assortment of products with a focus on solving the problem of how to bring equipment with you when using a car (roof racks, bike and water sport carriers, roof boxes). There are also other product areas such as accessories for recreational vehicles, trailers for active life (horses, boats, etc), snow chains and luggage.”
It’s the luggage that I think is slick. Well thought out and functional, without sacrificing style.
