I am a fan of industrial design projects, especially conceptual ones. Most of the time this projects illustrate quite well the whole of the designer that is to try to solve a problem in a creative way. Jaehyuk Lim, a designer from South Korea shared this awesome idea/concept of a electric skateboard that carries the Nike brand.

In a smart phone age such as this, some wonder if we have lost touch with what a ‘computer’ truly is. It’s a definition made more unclear with the countless types of new technology. Certainly the definition changes from one decade to the next — in fact, at one point people were referred to as computers. Yet, with Apple claiming that it considers the iPad a computer (in its recent advert), many are still skeptical and unwilling to consider it as such. According to Docubyte — the Pseudonym of photographer, retoucher, art director James Ball — the notion of a computer can be linked to a nostalgic connection with 1980s. Personal computers, such as the original Apple Mac and other beige icons, come to mind.
Docubyte designed a series of animated gifs as a sort of rebuttal to the question by apple. ‘I am a computer: icons of beige’ sees 16 classics from the golden age of personal computing turned into dynamic compositions. Maybe they don’t have the highest speeds or graphic capabilities, but who cares? they’re awesome. ‘I am computer’ celebrates the visual character of desktop computing machines from a colourless period in industrial design,’ Docubyte explains.
Fatih Hardal shared a really cool personal project on his Behance profile. The idea was to create posters where the main goal was to experiment with typography with colors, textures and simple effects like blur and burn effects. The result is a series of quite stylish posters that are definitely worth checking out.

Designers of the controversial Apple Park, Foster + Partners introduces its latest concept for Chinese robotics company DJI. Known for producing drones used for film and photography, a key facet of the new structure is a skybridge with drone testing functionality, allowing engineers to open a port at the bottom of the bridge and send drones out into the sky. Alongside normal R&D offices, showrooms, an exhibition hall and an employee gym, the vertically-oriented towers offer ground-floor space for “robot-fighting rings.”
The adidas Group has redesigned its brand identity to form the adidas Company. The change was made in aims of fusing its two faces—sports and corporate—under one visually arresting umbrella. With help from EIGA, adidas Global Brand Design created a scalable layout that’s been integrated into the design system. The flexibility allows adidas to easily transition between a more serious, corporate look and energetic, brand-oriented marketing.
