Saw Jobs (the movie) finally. This thing is a good source of inspiration for creatives. One of the monologue’s that I still remember is the one that Matthew Modine said (portraying John Sculley in the screencap above):
You can make a great product, but you have to convince people that what you’re selling is greater.
This doesn’t only deal with material products per se, but ourselves.
In August 2013 my friend Zina asked if I could shoot a video for her portfolio. She needed something that would showcase her work but also tell a little bit about her personality and her interests. We had two days to shoot and edit so we shot an interview and smashed something together to meet our deadline. On November 20, 2013 Zina passed away due to a hiking accident in Ouray, CO. After the funeral I revisited the footage and made this short as an attempt to capture her personality and creativity. I never planned to release it online but now I have a chance to share her and her creations with all of you! For all who are part of the Zina Lahr love bomb, this is for you!

I set out to using free, open-source web fonts for a particular project lately. I’ve had bookmarked some articles a while back with some pretty cool combinations that will help the Design process move a long a bit faster. To name a few:
In those articles where screenshots of sample combinations. I just saved them to my local drive for comparison. If you don’t have Adobe Lightroom (for its Survey or Compare views) or Adobe Bridge (for its Thumbnail view) but are on OS X, you can use Preview to compare the stills.
