Apart from being my motto in design, form follows function is the coolest website I’ve seen in a long, long time. And a great example of a truly engaging experience online.
Jongmin Kim creates small interaction experiments, where the user controls what’s going on on the screen.
We are talking about colorful, fun and, sometimes, unpredictable experiences.
What’s even better is that you can download some of the experiments to use as a screensaver (both for mac and pc).
All of the experiments are built in HTML5. And for those of you who don’t talk web, this means that the website works perfectly on your computer, tablet or mobile phone.

It is the fate of the post-it note to be dismissed very soon after it is written – whether, a reminder, a scribbled map, a love note, a cheat-sheet, a name, an address, or whatever else, its nature is by definition ephemeral. But there’s somebody collecting these used-up post-its.
Anthroposts gathers any found post-its and organizes them by color, complexity and the use of common words. With a haunting soundtrack of all their trivialities read out loud.
There is a chilling effect to this memorial to the ephemeral.

A few days before the opening ceremony of the 30th Olympic Games in London, Alex Robinson remembers William Blake and his poem London, published in Songs of Experience in 1794, to portray Olympic city’s face.

He did it again. French animator and graphic designer Martin Woutisseth, whose animation on Stanley Kubrick’s filmography we have already admired, created an animated video for Tim Burton’s films, this time. What can we say? We love Stanley Kubrick, we love Tim Burton and now we love Martin Woutisseth.

Sounds in danger of extinction? Well, it seems that there are sounds that are about to extinct, to be forgotten and lost forever, like the sound of a tape in a tape recorder, the loadind of VCRs, the symphonic startup of a Windows 95 computer, the ringing of an old Nokia mobile phone. But Brendan Chilcutt aim’s is to preserve these sounds: the sounds of old technologies and electronics equipment. In his site, the Museum of Endangered Sounds, you can hear all these sounds and remember an era before it is totally forgotten.
