The art on the cover of an album reflects the style of the artist and what their music sounds like. I don’t know if it’s coincidence, but I find that a lot of really great songs are accompanied by some equally great album art. Perhaps that’s because I’m totally anal about my album art (I can’t stand having placeholder covers in my library). Anyway, I just thought I’d share a few that always seem to pop out whenever I’m scrubbing through my library. Who knows, some of these might give you some ideas for a creative project.
I’ve always loved typography used as the focal point in motion graphic videos. I’ve even tried my hand at making them. Needless to say, I wasn’t successful due to the lack of patience on my part. However, that made me further appreciate the time and effort that these people have put into making these videos.
Sure, they’re cool, but take into account that each movement of text is scripted and perhaps you will understand the almost artistic beauty of these videos.
I challenged myself to design a basic site in an hour or less while taking a screenshot every 10 seconds. At what ended up being 1 hour and 9 minutes, I missed my mark – but only by a little bit. Overall, the end result is decent, but nothing spectacular. Given more time I would have probably refined the header section a bit more and spiced up the welcome area. Keeping in mind the time constraints, the simplicity and barrenness can be over looked, in my opinion. Look for the full size image after the jump.
Alright, so I was trying to see if MSN was down by Googling “is msn down”, and some somewhat comical suggestions popped up when I punched in the first word. This sparked a short-lived Googling frenzy. Here are my highlights.
I never found out if MSN was down..
It’s over… and apparently it was a success. Billions (not really) of people showed up, and enjoyed themselves… for the most part. Worlds 126 and 127 filled up completely, hours before the event even started.
I personally hung out with Regicidal1 for a while, and we went over to Clan Wars and lost multiple times. I pwned with my Mith stuff… But hey, who cares about me?
