critical design thinking

Raise your hand if you are incredibly anxious to get the season 3 designs for Vox Machina.

Because let me tell you, when Marisha was discussing Keyleth’s outfit in the periscope they posted, she also mentioned that it was Keyleth’s season 2 outfit, like it was old news, outdated. I’m sitting here, spitting out my drink, going “Did she just…” AND THEN she goes on to say that Kit must be ripping her hair out now trying to redesign Keyleth with shorter hair now that Marisha confirmed it. 

THEY ARE FREAKING PUTTING OUT NEW DESIGNS WE GET A CONFIRMATION ON THE VESTIGE DESIGNS, WE GET TO SEE VAX’S OFFICIAL ARMOR DESIGN, NEW PIKE ARMOR, NEW CLOTHING AND HAIRSTYLES AND OH MY GOD PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME I NEED IT NOW.

At intimate distance, the presence of the other person is unmistakable and may at times be overwhelming because of the greatly stepped-up sensory inputs. Sight (often distorted), olfaction, heat from the other person’s body, sound, smell, and feel of the breath all combine to signal unmistakable involvement with another body.

The Hidden Dimension, by E.T. Hall.

This book discusses, among other things, proxemics, and its inextricable bind with space, form, culture, architecture and design (and within this many other things).

Basic things I want to say to young designers: 1) I know people think you just prettify. 2) Stop accepting that, and fortify your ideas. Fortify how? By hitching your wagon to history, science, political stakes, cultural mythology, power structures, hidden voices. Context.

Scarecrow from Gotham Knight  requested by anonymous

I don’t care what anyone says. He is frickin’ adorable. When i first saw him i couldn’t stop laughing because he just looked so ridiculous.

I stumbled upon a post loooong ago about it just criticizing his design. I think he was referred to looking “like a confused slug”. ahahaa! and he does! omg

and then he has like gloves on sticks on his shoulders and i’m just, “jon how do you go through doors??”  sideways perhaps. i’m pretty sure he smacked a couple people when turning away akin to smacking someone with your ponytail. haha.

nevertheless i wish there was more of him ;(
