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.

Q&A with Hannes Beer
Short interview about Mr. Beer’s 365 project, The All Day Everyday Project. I’ve been keeping up with this since day one. Impressive that he creates some of those pieces within an hour.

In other news…
This year, I contributed to Chris Streger’s To Resolve Project. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a great way for designers to publicly announce their New Year’s resolutions with great design. Here’s my contribution.

Chris Streger

2 May

Chris Streger is a New York City-based graphic designer, illustrator, and art director who’s super clean style has allowed him to design for Kraft, Nike Golf, Burger King, and Domino’s Pizza. He spends his weekdays working at the legendary Saatchi & Saatchi, NY, designing, concepting, and generally holding-it-down for Toyota. Chris previously worked for heavy-hitters, Crispin Porter + Bogusky. I guess you could say that Chris is pretty damn good.

He also started something called “To Resolve Project.” It was an idea that sprouted from a conversation with his girlfriend, then turned into an open invitation to designers and illustrators everywhere to create an iPhone wallpaper based on their new year’s resolution. He figured since most of us look at our phones (iPhones or not) everyday, why not have it remind you of your (or someone else’s) resolution? Nice idea. Check them out on Chris’ blog.

Another cool thing that Chris has done (and where I stumbled across him and his work) was he illustrated designer and illustrator Jon Ashcroft‘s tweet one day. Here’s the link to dribbble. Awesome stuff.
