ARTICLE // 24 OF DESIGN’S MOST IMPORTANT PRINCIPLES, ANIMATED
Matt Greenwood gives us a cleverly animated representation of some common design principles.
I don’t know about the last sentiment in the animation. There’s definitely more to design than just “moving stuff around until it feels right.” Though I do agree that “feeling” and “emotion” can be something that a design communicates.

Holes in the wall by 1010-Stroke Art Fair
1010 is is a standout artist from Hamburg whose work evokes a mysterious symbolism. He had a number of similar artworks on canvas on display at the Stroke Art Fair in Berlin in September.
"Art has to be a kind of confession. I don’t mean a true confession in the sense of that dreary magazine. The effort it seems to me, is: if you can examine and face your life, you can discover the terms with which you are connected to other lives, and they can discover them, too — the terms with which they are connected to other people. This has happened to every one of us, I’m sure. You read something which you thought only happened to you, and you discovered it happened 100 years ago to Dostoyevsky. This is a very great liberation for the suffering, struggling person, who always thinks that they are alone. This is why art is important. Art would not be important if life were not important, and life is important. Most of us, no matter what we say, are walking in the dark, whistling in the dark. Nobody knows what is going to happen to them from one moment to the next, or how one will bear it. This is irreducible. And it’s true for everybody. Now, it is true that the nature of society is to create, among its citizens, an illusion of safety; but it is also absolutely true that the safety is always necessarily an illusion. Artists are here to disturb the peace. They have to disturb the peace. Otherwise, chaos."
James Baldwin in an interview in 1961 (via ethiopienne)
Welcome to the most chaotic movie officially release this year… because of the title…
Dear White People
For one, this is one movie I’m going to watch when it’s in the theater.
But we know what’s going to happen between now and screening. It’s going to start conversations. And it’s going to get hated on just because of the title. Oh and just wait until they realize what the content is.
Tim Wise will have a field day with why this movie is a must. Except… why should we listen to Tim Wise?
So, I decided that it’s time we get on the offensive. Instead of waiting for the hate, we’ll meet it at the front gate like Maino waiting to sing his breakthrough hit years ago. (Okay, for those who don’t get that reference)
Don’t share it with just tumblr and call it a day. Share it beyond tumblr.
Share the trailer with every one you know.
Comment on the trailer on YouTube. Give it a thumbs up.
In September, when I find out where it’s showcasing, I’m going to see if I can throw up a watching party. That’s right. A watching party here in NYC.
Of course, I have to do things like find people who’s going to volunteer to organize. But a tumblr meet up to watch a movie together? How crazy is that? But this is not about the meetup (yet). This is about throwing your full support behind this movie.
I mean do what you can to show this movie the love it deserves.
Tell your family, friends, and enemies. Tell your White Friends.
Plan ahead and pre-order tickets. Maybe watch it twice.
Plan watching parties (And let me know about it so I can promote it). Sell out the damn theater. Be extra nice to the cinema staff (just not “nice” as in flirty turnt-up nice, naa mean?) Hell, even buy a drink at the movie theater for that ONE movie.
Show the market that YES, we want more movies like this and less movies like… well… the one described in the trailer.
