Beautiful Editorial Design in Web Design

Beautiful Editorial Design in Web DesignabduzeedoApr 05, 2019

I love when designers are able to translate a classic editorial design to implementable web design solutions, even if it’s just for static mocks. I understand that you might think, oh that cannot be fully done with the variant screens sizes, resolutions, responsiveness – you name it. The truth is, the only way to find out is by trying. I love designers that push the visual design exploration and seek inspiration from well-established concepts borrowed from the print world. The Q. Tarantino project is a great example and makes me want to redesign ABDZ once again.

The designer behind this project is Lina Bo, a UI designer and illustrator from Barcelona, Spain. For more information check out https://www.behance.net/lina_bo

Music Keynote T Bone Burnett’s Powerful Keynote Speech [Audio]

“Satan is a very great electric engineer.” – Keynote Speaker T Bone Burnett at SXSW 2019, referencing media theorist Marshall McLuhen

Just moments before Facebook and Instagram went down for hours on Wednesday, March 13, 10-time Grammy-winning producer, songwriter, and Keynote Speaker T Bone Burnett sounded the alarms about the dangers of deregulated tech platforms. The music icon wasted no time discussing his legacy and fully utilized the ballroom stage to fire a shot across the bow at technologists that he described as “lacking humanity”.

“I will stay with the artists. Artists contain the accumulated knowledge of generations. Artists create conscience. The artists are our only hope.”

For the SXSW community, who had been deep in discussions, many of which were centered around future technologies throughout the week, Burnett’s remarks added a thoughtful and resonant layer to the conversation.

“There are laws against phone tapping, yet on the internet, all communications are tapped, at all times, with impunity.”

After delivering a thorough analysis of the malicious disarray of our current tech industry peppered with well-placed jabs at industry luminaries, who he referred to as “surveillance capitalists” and “digital gangsters”, Burnett recited the poetry of Czeslaw Milosz and made an important call to action, “The goal of art is to create conscience. You are equal to the task.”

Michael Pollan and Tim Ferriss on Psychedelics at SXSW 2019 [Video]

Michael Pollan, author of How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics teaches us about Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression and Transcendence and Tim Ferriss, author, entrepreneur and angel investor, discussed the exciting applications of psychedelics that still have yet to be explored at SXSW 2019.

During the Featured Session, Pollan elaborated on the renaissance of the scientific study of psychedelics as a mode of therapy for mental illness and how they could be utilized as a tool for understanding the mind. He described how psychedelics can be used to reset the mind by exploring his own experiences with psychedelics.

“One of the things these drugs do is make it possible for us to break out of repetitive loops and destructive narratives we tell ourselves.” – Michael Pollan
