Notes on web design, freelancing, photography and life...

With the release of the new Macbook Pro, I am SOOO close to wanting one. But — and it’s a big but — Apple seems to have made a screen with exceptional color and contrast along with serious daytime usability issues. I’ve seen ‘em in the stores. The reviews are right.

Benek says it all quite well on his letter to Steve Jobs:

Please go check out Type is Art : An Interactive Exploration of the Typographic Form. There you’ll find a great little Flash app that let’s you create any form you can think of out of type/font parts. It’s very easy to loose an hour or so as you explore what you can create with a few simple shapes.

If you like what you create, you can save it. Or browse the gallery to see what others have created. Some of them are far more talented than me with letter parts!
The seasons sure are a changin’ (well as much as they can in SoCal). Last night the cool air and winds hit. Today is more of the same. Leaves, sand, and dead palm branches are scattered everywhere.

I’m not sure where these images originated. (If any of you find a source, please let me know, and I will reference it.) What you are seeing is an installation at the The Museum of Communications in Frankfurt, a heard of sheep created from recycled telephone cords, headsets, and entire phone bodies!
Think the simulated wool is cool, look at the heads and feet!
