…Speakerdog Paper Toys are awesome?

Speakerdog Paper Toys

Speakerdog Paper Toys is a site filled with free paper toys that use two sheets of A4 paper and a bit of patience to make.

The designs were created by Ben the Illustrator and “a wonderful family of graphic designers, graffiti artists and illustrators from around the world” so there should be a design or two for everyone.

(If you like these, then you should also check out Cubeecraft.)

…It’s Website Wednesday: We Bleed Design?

We Bleed Design

Bryan Katzel is a graphic designer and illustrator, so it should come as no surprise that his own site, We Bleed Design, is a wonderful example of what’s possible with a bit of creativity and some coding mastery.

Icon

Daring Fireball has documented proof of Microsoft ripping off Apple’s icon for the Workgroup Manager app and using it for their Vista Business edition sales page. Considering this and the whole 9rules fiasco, I’m starting to think that being a graphic designer just means being a really good cut and paster.
