I’ve wanted to create a handwritten blog for some time now. The subject matter has unfortunately eluded me.
Today I stumbled upon a website titled, “Memories of a Girl I Never Knew.” It’s beautifully simple, and all done by hand.
There’s just something elegant about a website that showcases handwritten text only.
While putting together a Pecha Kucha presentation about the power of working together, I read a bit about the Pyramid of Giza.
What amazes me most is that of the 4,500 years this pyramid has existed, it was the tallest structure in the world for 3,800 of those years.
Also, the heaviest of the 2.3 million blocks used in its construction were transported over 500 miles. That might not seem like a big deal today, but in 2,500 BC?
Amazing things can happen when people work together on a common goal.
Forget the Film, Watch the Titles is a great site for gathering motion typography inspiration from movie and television titles.
I love to share websites that offer free high-resolution images, because as a designer I feel you can’t have access to enough of these.
Raumrot is a site I recently discovered that offers free handpicked stock photos for your commercial and personal use. Their images have a certain feel to them, so they may or may not meet your needs.
Mazwai is a site that offers free short videos. The selection is pretty good and the videos are short, built for looping.
I like to share websites that offer free stock images whenever I can. I believe that collectively these sites can provide a large enough pool of choices that you’re almost guaranteed to find something that fits your project needs.
Public Domain Archive is the newest find for me. I like the frequency that new images are posted.
Add this to your collection of free stock sites, and perhaps it will offer what you’re having trouble finding elsewhere.
Need a little energy boost? Feeling down? Well, here’s something that might help you out.
Pharrell Williams has created a song that almost instantly makes you feel happy. It’s conveniently titled, “Happy”. It’s also had a lot of air time so chances are you know what I’m talking about.
However, did you know that Pharrell also made a 24 hour long music video to accompany the song?
This isn’t just a fantastic video. The website itself is amazingly simple and elegant, just like the overall concept.
Next time you’re having a bad day, just visit 24 Hours of Happy and turn your frown upside down.
