Upcycled bicycle tube.


The original plan was to make a wristband out of a used bicycle tire as I`ve seen it on a flea market, so I bought a button plier. But all I had left at home for the moment was a used tube, so I tried to create something with that tube. It didn`t really worked out as a wristband (detail picture in the corner), so I changed my plan and made a chain protection for pants out of it.
Pictures were made once again with my Nikon D90 and my good old 50mm lense.

TurboSpeed, Nike’s new bumpy tracksuits inspired by Golf Balls

More Pictures and Info at LooksFeelsWorks!

The TurboSpeed is a super-light track suit that Nike claims will improve 100-meter dash times by as much as .023 seconds. To put that into perspective, in the 2008 Olympics 100-meter men’s final, .023 seconds would have been the difference between a personal best and a world record for the winner, Usain Bolt. It would have also been the difference between a 4th-place finish and a 3rd-place finish. Granted, we don’t know if that figure holds for the real world. But it is a remarkably big claim.

DANBO!

Do you know DANBO!?

Danbo

The name Danbo is a pun on the Japanese word for corrugated cardboard “danboru” (ダンボー). There’s also a company in Japan which makes cardboard boxes which has Danbooru in its name.

There have been a few variations on this name in the west, based on different translations from the original manga. Danbo was the original name used in the Yotsuba&! manga, and has also been used in the most recent translated versions for western markets.

The original western translations used the name Cardbo instead, as a literal play on words of the western word “cardboard”, but the “correct” name in the eyes of purists is Danbo, keeping the original Japanese pun intact.

Porsche bike concept

design by David Schultz, davidschultz-id.com

I recently designed a concept bike for the Fast Company / Porsche “Next Design Challenge”, and was happy to see it make the semi-finals (according to the editor it almost made the final 7, which would have been nice). The challenge was to design a product that used at least three design attributes or details from the Porsche 911 (of any era). I did this project for a creative outlet and to practice using KeyShot rendering software, which is a pretty wonderful design tool. Here’s my submission, I’d love to hear what people think:

Another day, another set of exceptional daily design inspirations. Let’s take a look together what kind of artworks did my colleagues prepare for us today. I would suggest to check Mesa Arch by Bill Church, Sunrise by Ryan Edy and the Red Smoke photography. Who would thought rough nature could be that beautiful in case of the last photo. In the illustrations section, there are plenty of amazing fantasy artworks …. gonna mention at least one of them – Death Knight by Slide. Few sections below, there is the art / digital art section which I never miss as there is always something to look at. This time, my favorites are the Lion #2 by Jenny Liz Rome and Johnny Depp by Clarae. We’ll stop in the ad section as well. There is an amazing artwork called Livrarias Curitiba: Apocalypse by Livrarias Curitiba. Better check that one out. If you’re looking for a nice futuristic / techno font, you’ll find a download link to Xero’s Theorem Regular at the bottom. Enjoy!
