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.
“HER LAST NAME IS NOT EVEN USED ONCE”
& more! all funny.
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.
This is SO pretty. Also, now I have to pee.
Tiny PMS Match
A personal project of tiny proportion—matching small everyday objects to their Pantone® colors, by designer Inka Mathew. All pictures were taken with her iPhone 5 and edited with Snapseed.
Super cute pictures of Pantone color twins… NOT little matches to start fires when you’re feeling super bloated and irritated and wanna watch something burn. Way sweeter than that.
all pretty adorable!
Great for dumb dumbs like me.
