WaterWise App

waterwise

WaterWise is a revolutionary wireless water meter and app.

We created WaterWise because real issues deserve real solutions. Water scarcity is one of the most pressing global issues of our time. We set out to create a fun, engaging way to change your water habits, save money and lighten your eco-footprint.

The instant feedback comes in the form of visual cues. The LED light changes from green, to yellow, to red, similar to a traffic light. This helps you gauge how much water you use  and when to stop.

For the past two weeks in our Production class  we spent our time learning all about photoshop and the million things that can be done  and the our part crafting a cover to a Organic Cookbook. The goal for this assignment was for us to put our photoshop skills to the test. Jason supplied a series of stock images for us to use and then we needed to integrate at lest two of them into a final product. And we would supply our on copy, publisher, and ISBN#.

Online Magazine. “Trendland redefines trend forecasting through a rich visual journey.”

Trendland  is a online magazine that is quickly claiming the leading edge of organic, spontaneous trend information.

In this relatively new world of e-zine i find that Trendland maintains the interest and has gained a significant following among international trend-watchers and design addicts alike. Pushing the limits in both content and web design.

Trendland focuses on fashion while including notes from all genres of culture including: music, art, design, photography, technology, pop culture, advertising, and fashion. I think fashion and more importantly ‘street-style’ is important to keep an eye on, there is so much to learn and to be inspired from in the way of textures, patterns, shapes and deconstruction.

I also like to follow The Satorialist for street-style.

Since 2005, the platform Fubiz has provided daily articles about contemporary creative culture. The post’s focus on graphics, culture, products, music, videos and digital arts. I find myself revisiting this blog weekly, because it has a more global feel than other creative blogs out there.

They recently came out with Fubiz TV. Which is a creative space where they have interviews every friday on new projects. (*Most of them are in French)
