Very cute :)
I really like this way of showing off a design: extending the colors beyond the canvas to show what the art really is (in the same way it blows your mind when you learn that a graph is just a screenshot of an infinite wave without a start or end).
I’ve seen this a lot for web pages as well and think this is going to be the new way to showcase work (especially on platforms where that’s a big deal - like dribbble!).
Anyways thought this was beautiful and wanted to share :)
Typographic poster design by Cory Say.
This! Is beautiful. I have really been inspired by a lot of this work lately. I would really like to start designing in my free time as well as my work time. I’m going to finish my Gotye posters first and then I’ll move onto a saying like this :)
Thought I’d share it in case it inspires anyone else equally!

First impression: Stylish design from a Danish icecream company.
Hansens Flødeis is a Danish icecream company which was established in 1922. They’ve decided to focus on nostalgia in their new branding strategi which is centered around the original recipes from 1922.
That is why the design of their marketing material has a vintage aura to it, which these postcards are a brilliant representation of. While they’re inspired by the old days the postcards are in no way old fashioned, which I love.

Designing for the user experience has a lot more to it than making a product usable. Usability allows people to easily accomplish their goals. UX design covers more than that, it’s about giving people a delightful and meaningful experience.
A good design is pleasurable, thoughtfully crafted, makes you happy, and gets you immersed. Think of games, they usually have these characteristics. Or think of the iPhone that makes even failures “more enjoyable than succeeding on a Blackberry”.
