Things We Found No.10

Today marks the first TWF of 2016, and what a cracker we’ve got lined up for you. First this week comes Alex the Husky, coded by David Khourshid and based on an original design by Ryan Rumbolt. Alex is particularly interesting because he’s animated purely with CSS and is hosted on CodePen, so if you want to tweak him, you can tinker away. Look at his little tail wag.

Next up, we spotted this new brand identity for San Francisco’s fastest growing craft brewery, Fort Point. Created by Manual, the designs feature elements inspired by the Golden Gate Bridge and other city landmarks. One to remember for post-work beers.

We recently discovered that Google have been up to their usual hijinks again: Try googling “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”. The Guardian put together a list of other useful/useless (delete as appropriate) things you can do with your friendly neighbourhood search engine.

Finally, in a month that’s sadly seen the passing of David Bowie and Alan Rickman, it’s only right that we include a couple of links in homage to these British cultural legends. Book cover designer Daniel Benneworth-Gray has been keeping a list of many of the interesting links and titbits related to David Bowie that have been posted around the web in recent days. And finally, artist David Michalek’s Portraits in Dramatic Time series features a video of Alan Rickman making tea (epically) at 3000 frames per second. Milk, no sugar, thanks.
