WTF happened to Tumblr’s logged out page?
Proportions of logo, copy and fields are all off. I’m hoping that this resulted from some hardcore funnel/metrics analysis. Otherwise it looked like marketing threw up on what was such a clean and elegant design.
Also - interesting to note that the copy is much more geared towards a mass market approach vs a ‘creators’ network. And who the fuck cares about ‘blogs’ in 2013?
If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

Woa. The hate is strong in this one.
We all need more protected bike lanes! The +49% in retail sales is amazing.
Public streets are about more than just moving from point A to point B. They’re also corridors for public life.
Giving a friend some tips about travels to Turkey: Don’t miss the library at Ephesus.
Also: David has held firm on any features around chat or messaging that veers too much into email (sometimes the lonely voice of dissent). And Tumblr is the better for it. Holding firm to your vision is one of the top 2 lessons I ‘borrowed’ from David when I worked at Tumblr.
It can be a little alarming to step back and realize just how animal-centric the typical American preschool classroom is… my daughter’s world has overflowed with wild animals since it first came into focus. They’ve been plush and whittled; knitted, batiked and bean-stuffed; embroidered into the ankles of her socks or foraging on the pages of every storybook.
A Child’s Wild Kingdom - NY Times
Lovely and amazing article. It starts off with such a simple observation: that animals are a huge part of children’s lives, and then as you peel the layers and dig deeper, there are so many directions to research and connections to build on.
The best products - whether it’s in tech, literature, visual arts, science, etc. - starts off with a seemingly simple observation. A fact that everyone knows. But underneath that obviousness is a whole world of possibilities waiting to be explored.
‘Architecture as The Extension of Topography’
Hebil 157 Houses is a manifestation of this idea. Located in the North of Bodrum Peninsula, five unique villas are spread over five acres overlooking the tranquil panorama of Hebil Bay. Influenced by the site forces, size, geometry and orientation of the villas vary. All equally benefit from vast … read more
VSCO Cam x Kevin Russ | vsco.coThese days, I’m shooting almost exclusively with the iPhone. I only bring out the DSLR when I need a telephoto lens, like if I see a bear cub. I’ve always tried to keep photography feeling like a hobby, and the iPhone keeps it that way. I can shoot an image and have it processed in 30 seconds with one hand. I’d rather be out exploring than sifting through gigs of images on a computer screen. (via VSCO Cam x Kevin Russ | vsco.co)
I love the idea of technology enabling us to live more vs distracting us to edit, curate, consume more digital cruft.
Also, the idea of sifting through photos is something that’s a pain point for me, too. And something I’m hoping to tackle soon. BTW - love the VSCO app.
