Welcome to December, and volume 36 of Found Fridays – 36 weeks we’ve been running this series, which showcases the best design finds of the week (in my humble opinion). This week, we have: 24 ways – an advent calendar for web geeks, 50 great examples of snowboard design, a great tutorial on icon design, an article on design briefs and some awesome “lens bracelets” for photographers. Enjoy!
Let’s just let the website authors explain: “24 ways is the advent calendar for web geeks. Each day throughout December we publish a daily dose of web design and development goodness to bring you all a little Christmas cheer.” Sounds like fun to me!
‘Tis the season! To get out on the slopes and shred, that is. If you’re lucky enough to be working on a snowboard design, or if you just want to see some great work, check out this post for inspiration.
WeGraphics has a great tutorial on creating a 48×48 pixel Wacom tablet icon. Not only do they go step-by-step, but they explain a bit of the thought process behind the decisions. Good read.
We’ve talked about design briefs before; this article takes it a bit further. Have a read, freelancers!
If you are a photographer nerd, or if you have a photographer nerd friend, this would be a great stocking stuffer. A bracelet – a la the Livestrong style – but designed to look like part of a camera lens. Brilliant!
See you next week!
