Invisible Bicycle Helmet

These chicks completely rethought the idea of a bike helmet and turned it into somewhat of a personal airbag.Very cool concept for commuting.

Avenir April

I was getting sick of my desktop wallpaper and have been looking around for a new one. When I am working, I don’t like to be distracted by bright, contrasting colors and large graphics in the background of the screen. Since most of the ones I found seem to have this, I decided to make my own.  I added a calendar on it and am going to make one every month in a font that starts with the same letter as the current month. This one is Avenir April and is available in 10 sizes including iPad and iPhone that would be great for the lock screen.

I have a  couple logo designs in the works, one for an antique car dealer, the other for a repair shop. Its always nice to take a break from the browser and get back into Illustrator.

Change Text Highlight Color

This has been around a while, but I have just started implementing it on sites. This detail adds a nice touch, further extending the color scheme and also makes text on dark backgrounds easier to read when highlighting. Highlight the text on this page, you will see it is black on green. The browser default would be gray on a light blue background, which is not easy to read. Below is the code I used:

::selection { background:#c3effd; color:#000;}
::-moz-selection { background:#c3effd; color:#000; /* Firefox */ }

Sarasota, Florida

I went down to Florida for a few days and it was a nice break from this weird winter we’ve been having. Favorite spots: Lido Beach Tiki Bar and Siesta Beach.

Skate Paint

Brittny Badger and I had an extra skateboard laying around that we never use so we decided to gesso the deck and paint it up!

Great photo blog running on tumblr. Love the minimal layout of full bleed stacked images. Zach Klein says he will be submitting the theme to tumblr’s theme store. Seems like a nice alternative to the flash portfolio sites so many photographers seem to have.

Holga photos

Just shot my first roll of film with a Holga. I had no idea what I was doing, but apparently that is half the fun with these things. Here are a few of my favorites:
