  • In 1965 at age 34 Roman Opalka began transcribing numbers, beginning at one and progressing to infinity. These "Details" are each painted on a 196 x 135 cm canvas, with numbers continuing onto a new canvas each time one fills.

    Beginning in 1972, he began whitening each canvas background by 1%, until he finally reached a fully white canvas in 2008, when he began painting white on white, or "blanc mérité" (white well earned).

  • A wedding is such a personal event, and I love how seeing designers' tackle the task of creating their own invites and identity for the celebration. It's almost candid to see how they use their skills on a project they are passionate about.

    Brian Hurst's design is no exception. He designed the save the vintage modern date and invite package for his wedding featuring a classy color group and great type, and I think it's just lovely.

  • Nicole Meyer, a designer and art director in Minneapolis, decided that the lake logos needed an update in Minnesota, because "lake logos have a tendency to be, well, fairly ugly."

    She created the Branding 10,000 Lakes project to rethink what they could be with one Minnesota Lake logo every day. At that generous pace the project will take about 27 years to wrap up! Thus far she's at lake 57. Go Nicole Go!

  • I enjoy when designers seem to effortlessly compile their years work into upbeat and seamless musical portfolio reels. I'm not sure how others feel about the trend, but I think the short videos are a nice way to glimpse the designer's aesthetic through their clips, compilation and the music they choose.

    One such example is Takuya Hosogane, whose 2011 reel has a nice variety of design with a working beat, and I feel like I get to know the designer a bit when watching the clip.

  • The Noun Project strives to collect, organize and add to the symbols of the world's visual language, and to "share them in a fun and meaningful way."

    They pledge to maintain a library of visual language icons that is free, simple, fun and high-quality and believe that each of these elements will help to effectively share their collection with the masses (in 13 languages). They make their library easy to navigate and find what you're looking for through a simple and clean interface with intuitive and accurate searches.
