Creative Morning Berlin #8: Nadine Roßa from Berlin/CreativeMornings on Vimeo.

Wasn't totally sure what to expect when I started watching this video by Nadine Roßa, but it is actually a wonderful look at how one lady finds the lowercase Sharp S (ß) one of the most delightful letters in the alphabet. It would be fairer to say that Nadine as absolutely passionate about the (ß) as can be seen from the wooden stamps above.

After watching this video I can now see the attraction to it and it comes close to the Ampersand in terms of it's quite unique form and structure.

After recently working on a logo project that involved Arabic translation—my fascination for more intriguing typography is at an all time high—I would jump at a chance to work on a logo that has the lowercase Sharp S (ß).

John Cleese - a lecture on Creativity from janalleman on Vimeo.

John Cleese tries to explain creativity and how to become more creative. The background of his lecture is scientific, the guide based on his own experience. This is really spot on and any creative professional will agree. Plus, it is really funny at the same time!

Enjoy and be inspired!

Only managed to do a few half-decent Cinemagr.am's but I am totally loving it. Takes a few goes to get the hang of the iOS app as well as taking still (non panning/shaking) video which seems to be the key to half decent animated.GIF's.

Took these two down the beach this morning. Put the iPhone down on the table and set to record then just masked out the the bits I wanted to loop.

Few limitations at the moment: such as very short 2 second or so loop, somewhat unreliable sharing, web site unreliability, but hopefully, and these are mostly minor niggles, will be improved in future updates. It is free so nothing to loose.

Couple of other attempts with the wonderful Miss Charley as my test subject (apologies for the flickering black bit on the one below).

Have an iPhone and are particularly keen on Instagram? I would pretty much guarantee then that you will love Cinemgr.am It feels like something Instagram could have done, so be interesting to see how it all works out as this seems like a natural progression from static photographs.

 




Steve Jobs makes perfect sense talking about Apple and branding. On the tail of Apple's struggle to go mainstream this is around the time the 'Think Different' campaign was initiated, with a glimpse of the first advert.

I wonder if he knew then the path he would ultimately take Apple and 'us'.

Mention's a few times about Apple's 'core'... :)
