…YouTube is going live?

YouTube Live

On November 22, YouTube unleashes live video on the world with a concert of epic proportions.

The artist list includes Katy Perry, Fred, Soulja Boy, Akon, Will.I.Am, and more, and even the MythBusters are scheduled to make an appearance, so it should be quite a show.

Plus, they’ve invited all of the YouTube heavy hitters, so expect plenty of vids and ‘behind the scenes’ to go live after the event.

Though YouTube has said that they don’t plan to announce any new technologies or features during the event, this definitely seems like the first major shot across the bow of every other live video company out there, because when YouTube steps in the building, they’re tough to ignore.

…It’s Movie Monday: Time Lapse Design?

Time Lapse Design

Ross Allchorn from Allchorn Design created this time lapse of his design process on a fictitious blog from mind map to paper sketch to the first Fireworks design concept, and it’s an interesting (and quick!) look behind the scenes of the design process form start to finish:

…Photoshop is as real as it gets?

As Real As It Gets

In case you missed it, this ad for Photoshop, called “As Real As It Gets”, is a fantastically creative interpretation of what the program would look like if it existed in real life.

Also, be sure to check out the Flickr set for some behind the scenes shots, because the size of this ad is almost unbelievable!

…Cookie Composites make beautiful helmets?

Cookie Composites ROK

During an Australian vacation, I had a chance to stop by the Cookie Composites shop with a friend that’s an active skydiver so that he could pick up a new lens for his skydive helmet/camera rig.

Seeing this small company that operates on a global scale up close and personal really gave me an appreciation for their hands on approach and handmade quality. Each piece is made with precision and care, and they were happy to show us around even though we showed up at their door essentially unannounced.

In 2006, Cookie Composites decided to reshape their brand, and hired a team of media and advertisement specialists to develop the brand’s new values. During that time, Ricardo Sa Freire was brought on to develop a range of new helmets that would translate those new values into a signature shape for their new products, and he shared that process online.

The ROK helmet is what came out of that process, and it’s a helmet designed for swoop canopy divers and base jumpers, with air intakes in both sides that are used to measure the speed through the sound of the wind.

Since the process behind the end result is no less impressive than what they created, it’s a fantastic read that gives you a glimpse into the world and work of a real designer as he creates a product that is designed to look good, save lives, and function in some of the most extreme environments imaginable.
