Creative Community Bulletin 08 April 2011 Through 16 April 2011

These are the ar­ti­cles, blogs, and re­sources I found in­ter­est­ing and wor­thy of shar­ing for 08 April 2011 through 16 April 2011:

  • How to run Android Apps and Games on your Windows PC | The Windows Club – Ever wished you could run some Android App or Game on your Windows PC? A soon to be pub­licly launched app will bring the Android op­er­at­ing sys­tem to Windows-based com­put­ers via a vir­tu­al­iza­tion layer. Enter BlueStacks!
  • Flock, the Social Browser, Shuts Down 26 April – Support for Flock browsers will be dis­con­tin­ued as of April 26th, 2011. We would like to thank our loyal users around the world for their sup­port, and we en­cour­age the Flock com­mu­nity to mi­grate in the com­ing weeks to one of the rec­om­mended web browsers listed be­low.
  • Want To Know Your Co-Workers’ Salaries? – Meet SalaryShare, a sim­ple salary com­par­ison ser­vice that lets you anony­mously pool salaries with your co-workers, friends, peo­ple on Twitter or any­one you feel com­pet­i­tive with re­ally. Create a pool, send the link to four peo­ple who will dis­close their salaries and the site will re­veal the salary span, with­out re­veal­ing who makes what.
  • 3D Artworks That Create Unbelievable Optical Illusion On Street | Free and Useful Online Resources for Designers and Developers – If you are search­ing for some great 3D street paint­ings, you come at right place be­cause in this post we are show­cas­ing some awe­some paint­ings which demon­strate the 3D street art. We have care­fully se­lected these paint­ings and are very much sure that you will like this as­sort­ment, and the credit of which must be given to their cre­ator who have been prac­tic­ing out­stand­ingly.
  • Eau, wa­ter pic­ture! Artist Markus Reugels makes a splash with his amaz­ing port­fo­lio of liq­uid droplets | Mail Online – They could al­most be mis­taken for im­ages taken in the far-reaches of outer space, or an ultra-magnified snap­shot of mi­cro­scopic or­gan­isms.

    However look again, for these in­cred­i­ble pic­tures are the work of artist Markus Reugels who has turned to one of the most abun­dant re­sources on the planet to cre­ate these strange and beau­ti­ful por­traits – wa­ter.

    The 33-year-old German artist com­bined wa­ter droplets with food colour­ing and cre­ative light­ing to make these vi­brant im­ages, which were only able to be cap­tured with high-speed cam­era equip­ment.

  • 50 rea­sons not to date a graphic de­signer « a bour­bon for sil­via – This is by no means a warn­ing to AttentionWhore, or maybe this is – but af­ter 8 months it may be too late, so…
    (in bold my most rep­re­sen­ta­tives)
  • Superpowers Mega Chart: They Are ALL Here | Bit Rebels – Pop Chart Lab put to­gether one of the most in­tri­cate and de­tailed in­fo­graph­ics I have ever seen. The sheer time it must have taken to put this to­gether is just mind bog­gling. The re­sult; how­ever, would make a per­fect wait­ing room poster. Once you start look­ing at it, you can’t re­ally stop. It’s one of those posters where you just get sucked in and in­stantly get ad­dicted to its awe­some­ness and ul­ti­mately use­less in­for­ma­tion.
  • Put Down Your Crayons | idea­sonideas – Sadly, a great many de­sign­ers don’t feel like do­ing this kind of work. Instead, they want to be artists who only ex­plore vi­su­ally. I don’t blame them, but I do be­lieve this bias leaves them miss­ing out. This sort of tun­nel vi­sion can un­nec­es­sar­ily limit one from tak­ing on the re­ally in­ter­est­ing parts of the work.

    While I’m as ex­cited as any­one else about novel vi­sual ap­proaches and de­sign de­tails, the part that re­ally blows my hair back is the “big idea.” I love how ar­riv­ing at one of these es­tab­lishes a plat­form for what we’re do­ing for a client. I also ap­pre­ci­ate how this kind of ap­proach to prob­lem solv­ing po­si­tions our agency as a group of thinkers, in­stead of just a bunch of vi­sual styl­ists.

  • Download – 3.0 Browser – Maxthon International – The only browser de­signed for the whole web. Dual
    dis­play en­gi­nes (pow­ered by Trident and Webkit) and

  • Superhero Type to the Rescue! | CreativePro​.com – It's a bird. It's a plane. No, it's an al­pha­bet!

    Fabian Gonzalez has cre­ated a witty al­pha­bet in which each let­ter rep­re­sents a su­per­hero; for ex­am­ple:

  • – Terrierman’s Daily Dose – – in 2008 PETA killed 95.8 per­cent of the dogs, cats and other pets put into its care last year
