Something about concept art really inspires me. I think its the use of colors that is just brilliant, especially in concept environments. You really have to have an understanding of color and light in order to perfect this art. Anyway, Ryan DeMita is a graduate of University of Cincinnati DAAP program, and his work just needs to be shown. You can see more at http://ryandemita.blogspot.com/

Design firm Capsule recently released their new take on the packaging for Schwinn. The new look brings a certain vintage cool back to an classic American brand. The old design (seen above) seemed fine at first, but in reality was lacking some originality and flair and was limiting the brands potential. I think the new look is well...classy.
I have always been intrigued by the future of printed goods. With the release of the iPad and the Kindle, people have been fearing the decline of the physical entity that make up our books, magazines, and newspapers. I believe that when done right, their fears are with good reason. This example of the new Popular Science + for the iPad is one of the first digital magazine to emerge for the new portable technologies. Called Mag +, the new digital magazine was produced by Bonnier in collaboration with the London design firm BERG.
