On the blog JUST CREATIVE DESIGN designer Jacob Cass shows an inside look to his personal process. He shows exactly how he got to this final solution, starting all the way at the beginning with his mind map.

Another blog I found today and was looking at was GRAIN EDIT.  I found a lot of interesting things on there, but the “pebble alphabet” really stood out to me.  (Especially for you Amy, it made me think of our project for 351 and obviously because it’s a rock it reminded me of you) It also reminded me of last year doing the object translations, and this was just a unique way of looking at the alphabet.

Now that I feel a little more comfortable with the idea of blogging, I was able to start to explore what is out there for me to look at.  I never would of imagined the endless amount of design, and art there is to look at.  I started to notice that the kind of blogs I enjoyed looking at the most were definitely ones that had a variety of types of design.  Being able to stay on one person’s blog and have the option to look at everything from web design to typography is very exciting to me.  One blog in particular that did that for me was Things to look at.  I really enjoyed the variety of contents on this blog.  While I was looking at that blog, it led me to another link that was really interesting.  The way the web site was set up, and the way the tabs and content moved around was very unique and clever. I found my self clicking on all the tabs just to see them move, and I noticed the flow of the page in no time at all.
