Beautiful Dynamic Desktops

So Apple introduced the idea of dynamic desktops in Mac OS Mojave last year but deigned to only provide us with two options. Since then its been quite difficult tracking down alternatives but today I stumbled across a project which is making that easier.

Its a collection of dynamic wallpapers that you can use with your Mac to experience the passing of time as you're busy working!

its free and also includes tips and guidance on how to make your own dynamic wallpapers from your own photos.


Dynamic Wallpapers only work with Mac OS Mojave and later.



Let us know in the comments how you get on!



Apple’s Jony Ive designs a $250,000 Unibody Diamond Ring!

Sir Jony Ive, the Chief Design Officer at Apple and Marc Newson have come together to create a one of a kind ring hewn from a single lump of diamond for the Product (RED) charity initiative.

Heres a quote from the Sotheby's catalogue:

...with their mutual obsession with transformning raw material into objects of value, Ive & Newson's design is singular, clear and un-compromised by the traditional metal settings and bands that have previuously been required to create 'diamond rings'. Theirs will be created by removing material rather than adding-an ambition made possible by the extraordinary scale of the stone which will enable the ring to be completely made of this material.

Its certainly a feat of enginerring to be able to create a ring like this but we dont imagine we will see many, the size of diamond required to make this beast of bling precludes it from becoming a standard design. It looks like this may be a one off. The ring hasn't actually been finished yet and will be made to fit the winning bidders chosen ring size and will be constructed with 2-3000 facets - the highest amount ever seen in a cut diamond.

Learn the basics of Colour Theory

Colour is manipulative, controlling, enchanting and beguiling. It follows, then, that it pays dividends to learn the basics of what makes colour work and how to effectively use it in your design and branding projects. Not everyone studies colour theory at school nor has had the pleasure of reading Kandinsky's work notes on its psychological and spiritual effectiveness.

I just discovered, however, a rather spiffy website that goes far in visually explaining the basic fundamentals of colour theory as well as providing some links to some very useful tools.

Excellent article on Colour Theory for Web Design and Branding.

I came across this remarkably concise and awesome article on colour theory and its application in websites and design. It serves as a great resource for anyone embarking on creating or rejuvenating a brand who wants to be clever about it.
