Stuff I've Designed

Site Update

I’ve updated my freelance site with a couple ticket projects for a colleague of mine as well as a minor change to the left-hand column; I decided to rid the site of the cheeky copy it had and replace it with a simple quote that I’ll be updating regularly.

And, yes, I do intend to pick back up on posting. September’s been a hell of a month with what seems to be all my friends celebrating their birthdays, with my own bunched into the mix. I feel the need to add more original content — steering away from the almost purely link-based posts I’ve been putting up recently — but I’m one of those people who can’t really inspire themselves to do something; there needs to be some sort of trigger or request. I find it insanely difficult to “just do something”, but I guess practice and a keen eye makes perfect. (Perhaps the keen eye come with practice too — tricky.)

Future of the Book

IDEO — one of the (if not the) design leaders if you aren’t aware — has put together a brief exploration of how technology and the classic book might blend in the future. Nicely put together with some interesting ideas, I’m particularly intrigued about the Alice portion of the video that introduces the idea of an interactive book (snapshot above).

(It’s been a little slow around here lately, I know. Between jam sessions to prepare for a major party this weekend, my own birthday last weekend — which claimed the life of my cell phone — and work, it’s been pretty hectic. I’ve got a few posts in the making, one being the next instalment of Altered Timescapes. Regardless, the activity on here will pick up again; however, it’ll probably be fairly quiet this weekend.)

Altered Timescapes — Insomnia

(As promised, here’s the new entry to Altered Timescapes before the end of the week.)

Insomnia marks a minor shift in the way Christopher Nolan constructs his films, moving away from the decidedly fractured form his previous two films took towards a more linear structure. That being said, time is no less an important part of the plot, only this time it affects the character more than the viewer. Continue reading

The Majestic Plastic Bag

Heal the Bay put together a great mockumentary following the precarious journey of one plastic bag’s attempt to reach its eventual home in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The narration, provided by Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons, is absolutely perfect.

And if you’re wondering, I was terribly sick all of last week which rendered me unable to think clearly, thus the lack of the next Altered Timescapes review — it’ll be up end of the week I swear.

One Photo Reviews

Scott loves movies. As a movie lover, Scott enjoys sharing his opinion on what he’s seen recently. Does he talk to someone about it? No. Does he write something about it? No. Does he take one photo of his face expressing his overall taste for the movie? Yes. My personal favourite is his review of The Last Airbender, the latest M. Night Shyamalan defecation, pictured above. Be sure to check them all out.

This is one of those things that I wish I thought of. So simple. So good.
