Cool Shit Friday
Once every other Friday (probably) our studio sits down and shares some cool shit. Here are our latest takes.
The second round of Cool Shit Friday happened! If we can make it three this things should stick. Our team sits down every other Friday and has lunch together, sharing something wonderful, curious, or important that has been on our radar as of late. Everyone pays attentions and tries to absorb what’s going on. It’s good to share and it’s good to write, so this is a two birds with one stone situation.
- New York Times — The Loneliness of Being Black in San Francisco — Logan Emser — Designer
Interesting read showing how an area once a beacon for Jazz, culture, and diversity has become distinctly the opposite. This shows parallels with the lack of diversity in the Tech scene.
- Adobe Masterpiece — Radhika Unnikrishnan — UI UX
Showing off Adobe’s new stock photography service. Digital artist recreates classic lost painting using all stock photography. Great video.
- Mercedes Helwein — Alexander Gracey — Studio & Community Manager
Contemporary artist and writer. She works out of LA and Ireland. Fantastic work showing a muddy look at the past and social documentation. Clear references to found photography and home use cameras.
- Interference Archive — Deroy Peraza — Principal + Creative Director
Treasure trove collection of political prints and artwork. Around the corner from the office.
- Ice Cream Museum — Wen Ping Huang — Designer
Crazy fun museum with a sprinkles swimming pool. Completely sold out, but amazing none the less.
- Beauty — Joelle Woodson — Strategic Planner
Oldie but a goodie that a lot of the team had not seen. Renaissance paintings brought to life is a very haunting manner. Make sure to watch the whole thing. Art History nerd fun.
- The 1-OK Club — Nick Di Chiara — Designer
Australian, collection of well designed object that go against conventional ideas of design (read mass production)
- Short of the week — Andres Kishimoto — Intern
6–7 shorts. Clean site, great content, has an incredible comedy section.
