Qs / Vol. 4 / Apr.9 - Apr.15

The top 15 out of a 55-quip week — including a sixteen-quip weekend.

A = Authors | C = Community

A / No. 28 / Armin / It’s all about transparency these days. A design firm changes their name, and identity, to Plaid, and you can see the design process. [Via HOW]

A / No. 34 / Armin / Mmmm-mmmm. Beatiful covers of the French magazine Clark. (Stop scrolling after Number 15, they get fugly). [Via mag.nificent]

A / No. 35 / Bryony / Peel and place your coated desires. [Via HOW]

C / No. 36 / Tom Cox / Who owns this logo?

A / No. 36 / Armin / Brooklyn, NY, April 11: Join Pratt faculty and students for their third annual Big Damn Prints event, where 4 x 8 feet woodblock prints are printed on paper with the help of a steamroller! Photos to prove it here. [Via Design Arts Daily]

A / No. 31 / Armin / The world would be a very different place without Post-Its. For one, we wouldn’t have a giant scene of Donkey Kong on display on four floors of a building in the University of California Santa Cruz campus. [Via BoingBoing]

C / No. 48 / Joe Moran / A square has two dimensions. A cone has three. So what does something with 248 dimensioins look like? Article. (Keep in mind, that drawing is in two dimensions. But Wow!)

A / No. 33 / Armin / Typographer John D. Berry on The Pleasures of Old Type Books.

A / No. 23 / Bryony / Trying to diminish confusion, NYC taxis will be unveiling new (clearer) graphics. [Via Gothamist]

A / No. 26 / Armin / “Computer disks will work on any computer that has a floppy drive and all software is usable on any platform.” This is example #21 of “Things Computers Can Do in Movies.” [Via Boing Boing]

A / No. 24 / Bryony / Four artists ambushed the F train in New York, creating the No Train Like Home, complete with welcome mat, plastic plants, pillow lookalikes and wall art. A bit more about them here. [Via Gothamist]

A / No. 30 / Armin / Information graphics about world statistics applied directly to globes. [Via BoingBoing]

C / No. 51 / Max / a student project of graphic design webisodes featuring cameos by graphic design superstars.

C / No. 39 / Joe Moran / Brian Chan’s Origami Page. > [Via Coudal]

C / No. 47 / Joe Moran / More to worry about. Alert Map is a real-time display of the catastrophic accidents, violent weather and epidemic outbreaks unfolding across the globe. From WSJ. The spin-off Global Incident Map is a real-time display of terrorism and other suspicious events. And Family Watchdog allows you to type in your address and see what kind of creeps are living nearby. The scariest of all three!

this "damn big prints" event was damn near a week ago. I suppose this happens next April?

Armin’s comment is:

Felix, we originally posted this quip a damn near week ago plus one day. It's posted here today, because it got many clicks last week, garnering it a spot in this week's top 15 from last week.
