Ahoy hoy, and welcome to Found Friday Vol 75. This week we have some great finds: a gift guide for tech heads/designers, a great look behind the scenes at Atlassian’s rebrand, an interesting article on BrandStack, a free online course for learning jQuery, and an easy way for you Instagram-loving hipsters to print your photos directly to canvas.
I love gift guides that are focused on interesting & well-designed goods. That’s what this one is – check it out!
Atlassian, a software company focusing on issue tracking and similar products, underwent a great redesign. Read all about the process in this article. Fascinating stuff for brand nerds like myself.
Count this as reason #4,938 why people shouldn’t use stock logo services. BrandStack closed suddenly and didn’t pay a bunch of the designers using the site. Awesome.
Edit: apparently they’re being acquired and thus brought back. Boo.
jQuery is a huge part of the web these days; if you don’t know how to use it, now you can learn for free! This course is very nicely set up and executed. I suggest partaking if jQuery is mystifying to you.
Instagram is everywhere these days, sporting a huge user base. Now CanvasPop offers direct-from-Instagram printing. Get your grainy iPhone photos of your Chuck Taylors printed on canvas near-painlessly! Actually sounds like a cool service, though.
See you next week!
