Today’s Likes are all fake, not real, speculative, just-for-the-heck-of-it projects. Some designers question why other designers do this: Wouldn’t the time and energy be better spent designing something probono for a nonprofit? Yes, probably. But how else is one going to satisfy the longing for designing for our dream clients? I love fake design projects: They are the equivalent of hitting the gym and lifting weights to get stronger, leaner, meaner — it may not always be pretty, but eventually leads to results.
We have a pretty eclectic collection today with brands for history nerds, baby nerds, and nerd nerds.
Trying something new today. Every now and then I run into or am tipped about very cool projects that don’t necessarily fit within the review process. These projects are usually for smaller businesses, services, or products and are done by smaller design firms or individual designers. So every now and then I’ll gather some of my favorites and post on Fridays. You can like or dislike in the votes.
