We recently published a project on Behance titled Typography in Water where we took five selected fonts and mixed them with water. The final result was astonishing and we figured why not provide these as wallpapers as well. So to serve all the frenzy around the recent Apple iPhone 4 and iPad releases, we are offering selected images from the project as wallpapers for those devices. Read more…
Some of you may already know, but we have been developing and maintaining a little image blog/community called Buamai since late 2008. We recently did a little spring cleaning on the code and layout of the site, making for a much easier and quicker experience when searching and browsing for images. Also, be sure to check out the iPhone app if you enjoy the site. At only 99 cents, app purchases help us raise funds to continue working on the site and keeping it alive.
Word of warning, some images might not be safe for work (nsfw).
We came across The Typography Manual in the Apple Appstore just a week or so ago when searching for type related apps and almost snagged it. We have not purchased it yet, but it looks to be a nice one for all your type heads out there. (Via Müller-Brockmann)
CNN just posted a iphone app on itunes, and its getting quite the stir of attention right now. They really revamped the idea of a news app for the iphone, with saving articles, live video* and the iReport features built into the app. I think the price is fairly nice, $2 for such a large amount of app development work and a nice app is a pretty good deal. BUT….it has ads, and when you read the reviews on itunes, its like a wild witch hunt right now. CNN, people do not like paying for an app, then getting ads. I know where you are coming from with this, cough cough business model. CNN, ads in a pay app is a no-no, and you just pissed off thousands of people in the first week of launch.
Second, what in the world is with the news articles being white text on a black background? Its bad, backwards and hard to read. Next update, give me articles on a white background or at least the option. I posted a quick mockup (invert) of the way the article SHOULD be read, black text on white. For the love of god, fix this, right now I don’t even want to read the articles. This is a news app, not a twitter app.
Everyone seems to love some tiltshift style photos, so of course there is now an app for the iphone. By the same creators of Quadcamera & Toycamera. They also have this free version you can use online via flash.
My latest side project for Graphic Designers and creatives is called Buamai. The project is only few months old but we already have 3000 images blogged. As of today, we now gave a great new iPhone application to bring this content to you while you are mobile. The application was created to grab random images from our server to cure your boredom as well as inspire. Images found on our site are mainly of Graphic Design, Art and Architecture interest but with some random, strange images thrown in for variety. Use our website to cure boredom, find talented artists or for gathering inspiration.
