Found Friday Vol 3

^

Welcome to Vol 3 of Found Fridays! This week’s finds include a great article summing up the basics of CSS3, a cool project involving t-shirts designed by bands for charity, a fun little chalkboard notebook, a website showcasing designer’s workspaces, and a brilliant article on what a brand is and what it isn’t. Read on!

BASICS OF CSS3

CSS3 has gotten a lot of coverage from a bunch of design blogs, and thus it’s been a little overwhelming just to figure out the basics and what we should know as a starting point. Luckily webdesignerwall.com came through with a timely & easy-to-digest article for all you web designers out there.

YELLOW BIRD PROJECT

This awesome Montreal-based nonprofit works with a variety of bands, asking them to design t-shirts with the proceeds going to a charity of their choice. Not only a cool idea, but some great tees in there too. Check it out!

Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s finds!

CHALKBOARD NOTEBOOK

Quirky – a notebook which you can write in (obviously), but also one you can write on the OUTSIDE of. With chalk. So all your drawings like ME + ROBERT PATTINSON = TRU LUV 4EVA can be erased later before your clients come over. (via swiss-miss)

WHERE WE DESIGN dot COM

Designers workspaces are usually something to behold, as most designers are as equally anal about workspace design as they are about their own client designs. Here’s a site that is focused solely on showcasing cool design spaces from around the globe.

YOUR LOGO IS NOT YOUR BRAND

Something every logo designer, identity designer, brand manager, etc etc should read. I’ve been guilty of misusing the terms brand/logo/identity before; not anymore, thanks to this reminder. Read it or be scorned by your design brethren.

Enjoy, and tune in Monday for a fresh new post – and Friday for another Found Friday installment.
