Well, of course a Tumblr search for “babylock” would give you fan art of baby Sherlock.
What’s a serger?
My bunny dreams are crushed. I’ve been relieved of my upcoming bunnysitting duties!
Plus: How Apple, Facebook, Google, and more tech-world heavyweights describe their design jobs.
Design is a rather broad and vague term. When someone says “I’m a designer,” it is not immediately clear what they actually do day to day. There are a number of different responsibilities encompassed by the umbrella term designer.
Design-related roles exist in a range of areas from industrial design (cars, furniture) to print (magazines, other publications) to tech (websites, mobile apps). With the relatively recent influx of tech companies focused on creating interfaces for screens, many new design roles have emerged. Job titles like UX or UI designer are confusing to the uninitiated and unfamiliar even to designers who come from other industries.
Let’s attempt to distill what each of these titles really mean within the context of the tech industry.
Q:would you ever consider giving away the username ring on tumblr?
Made some graphics for a calendar.
Did you know that July is National Blueberry Month, National Hot Dog Month, and National Parks Month?
Some of the insights for July were originally in badges, but I scrapped them because, well, they were just too hard to read.
please be courteous this 4th. of July if you have a veteran in your neighborhood
This is something very very important which I’ve never thought about until now
My dad used to have issues with mortar smoke - remember it’s not just the noise that can be a problem.
Here’s an Otocolobus manul — nature’s Grumpy Cat — discovering a camera trap outside it’s den. Camera traps are used by biologists to lean about rare animals’ behavior, abundance, and health — just by setting up a solar-powered camera with a motion trigger. No physical trapping necessary.
O. manul (also known as Pallas’s cat) is about the size of a house cat, but you’ll notice has round pupils instead of slits. It lives in western China and the steppes of Central Asia.
You’d think that Pallas’s cat would rule the internet by now - but there aren’t too many photos of them because they are both rare and shy. The IUCN lists them as near-threatened. Just another reason to support species conservation!
