‘Roads not Taken’, an exhibition of 10 NFTs, is open until Sunday – and is a weird experience. Check out what we thought of the event.
Awesome to see the live version of Hey Studio’s Women at Work podcast, exploring the experiences of women in the creative industries. “I want to be treated as a designer, not a female designer.

It’s another beautiful day in Barcelona! Here’s the outdoor crowd listening to an awesome talk by type foundry House Studios. “We no longer think in terms of dream clients – it’s more about dream projects.”
“What we do as a designers, although it’s great to get recognition, and money, is try to connect with people.” – Timothy Goodman

“Who’s used Illustrator on iPad?” Lots of hands. “Who’s used Fresco on iPad?” Fewer hands. Here’s Adobe’s Olivier Huard explaining why the painting tool is an essential part of any digital artist’s workflow, thanks to features like ultra-realistic natural brush rendering, animation, and seamless importing to and from Illustrator and Photoshop.
“We love to make our sounds imperfect. Sometimes we run them through things like guitar pedals to dirty them. It humanises them.”

Last night we went along to the Welcome Party to celebrate the launch of OFFF 2022. It was great to finally hang out in person with the design community once again. Virtual events have their place, but there’s nothing quite like the real thing.
