friday blinks – 4/27/12

27 Apr

Here is a list of sites we’ve come across throughout the past couple weeks that we think are worth sharing. We call it friday blinks.

Stay Up Late
Michael Bierut, Partner of Pentagram Design New York explains how staying up late allowed him to get a competitive edge, grow, get better, get faster, and ultimately propel his career by working a self-motivated second shift. I’ve been trying to do this lately and I seem to have more creative energy throughout the day.

I am Big Bird
If you or anyone else you know has ever watched Sesame Street, please watch or share this. I was never a big Big Bird fan…I always thought he was a giant, whiny bird with constant nasal congestion. But watching this gave me chills.

Gradients…

Parra gets weird
Dutch artist Parra kills it with a huge mural, titled “Weirded Out” in the SFMOMA. Love this guy’s style. Big, bold, simple…oh and boobs.

Mysterious paper sculptures
Found in and around UK libraries, these intricate book sculptures are really amazing. Maybe Banksy has decided to start supporting libraries.

To Resolve Project
NYC-based designer Chris Streger is starting his 2012 New Year’s resolution design project. This year, he has invited the general public to create designs towards the cause. I heard Chris is going to put in at least one submission. Excited to see how this turns out! I might have to do a few of these, too.

Also, I liked this quote:
