Artwork by Ekaterina Kurch

Ekaterina Kurch is a Moscow based illustrator, graphic designer, and artist. Many of her works are poignant in nature, but being Friday, I thought I’d go with something a little more upbeat. Do look at more of her work though, this is your assignment for the weekend.

Take another little piece of the internet away, FFFFOUND! to close

Monday, 24 April, 2017

Ten years after opening for business, image sharing website FFFFOUND! will be closing on 8 May.

In the early days, membership was highly coveted, and by invitation only. Some design forums ran threads whereby members would send an invitation to someone hoping to join FFFFOUND!, so long as they later extended an invitation to someone else who wanted to join.

While founder Yugo Nakamura offered no reason for the closure, some people are blaming Tumblr for the demise of FFFFOUND!.

Artwork by Joi Murugavell

Ever feel compelled to answer a question, because, well, you think you might be running out of time to supple an answer, or say something?

That’s called a tight answer deadline, and the practice has Sydney based artist and illustrator Joi Murugavell wondering if it’s a good idea, considering we’re likely being economical with the truth, in such situations.

That just might be one deadline we need to start missing more often.

Coming to an airport near you soon, maybe, circular runways

Wednesday, 12 April, 2017

Henk Hesselink, a Dutch engineer, has developed an idea for circle shaped runways. His design would eliminate all sorts of problems associated with flight, including cross wind landings.

They’d also be better for the environment, and would allow aircraft noise to be more evenly shared in areas surrounding airports.

I like the concept, but I’m wondering what a pilot would make of trying to land on a circular runway, as opposed to a straight one?

Becca Who is an artist and designer, based in Lancashire, in England. This work, though it is a detail, probably gives you a pretty good idea where she draws a lot her inspiration from, namely nature, psychedelia, and the other worldly. And how about those colours?
