Designer of AMAZING ’90s jazz cup pattern found

The intense passion of a nostalgic corner of the Internet flared up last week, with a post on a popular web forum. The anonymous user wanted to find the person behind a design so commonplace you’ve never thought about it. It’s just there. When you ask if you can get some water … when you opt for the combo meal … when you’re given a drink in the hospital.

A continuous broad teal brushstroke, topped with a finer purple one. If that doesn’t ring a bell, imagine it on disposable cups. Over the past couple decades, the pattern has been mass produced on millions of them, in addition to other products. The design is called “Jazz,” and it has an oddly passionate fan base. You can buy it on T-shirts. It’s been spotted on cars. It has a few thousand fans on Facebook.

Interesting story of the internet searching for, and finding, the best designer of all time.

is it a f-ing baby wheeel?

NSFW as it contains 5 billion curses. God bless this guy. I keep playing this in the background and can’t stop giggling.

“That’s a tuner bro! Jay, that’s a tuner or something. Jay, look at it. Come on. Oh man, Jay, let’s pull it in dude. LOOK AT THAT FUCKING THING. OH MY GOD. HO-LY SHIT. OH MY GOD, man. We are seeing some shit we ain’t never seen before…”

water faucet spirals

A London student recently designed this conservation-friendly faucet that swirls your water into captivating geometric patterns as soon as you turn on the tap. The faucet weaves small jets of water into intricate, cross-hatched designs that look like they belong on delicate crystal glassware. The faucet head is a simple, minimalistic curve, making the designs it spouts out all the more delightful.
