iOS Game of the Day: Specimen
New York / January 1, 2015

Here’s an addictive little iOS game for all you designers out there who feel you have a discerning eye for colour! You can test yourself to see just how accurate those eyeballs of yours really are. Specimen was created by three New Yorkers; Designer Erica Gorochow, developer Sal Randazzo, and programmer Charlie Whitney. The museum-led incubator known as NEW INC acted as a home base for the project and it sounds like the community there really helped foster Specimen’s development. The team now has plans to be able to provide users with data about the way they see colour. If you wanna check it out, you can download Specimen for free. (I’ve found that I do better when I squint at the screen.)

“The Event of a Thread” installation by Ann Hamilton
New York / December 2, 2014

“ installation by Ann Hamilton just closed at . I was dying to go after seeing several images of it pop up on Instagram last week, but lucky for us designer/photographer Paul Octavious shot a little video of the installation. Actually, I’m not sure if lucky is the right word, I’m now a bit more depressed I didn’t get to go. Watch below!
