Apple does great design. So does Philips, even though, at least in North America, they don’t get the ovations that Apple gets. As well, Philips has MANY more products and product lines than Apple. It’s not a competition, but people should look at others besides Apple as designers of great products.
See some of it here: PHILIPS – The Simplicity Event
Cumulate Draw is great online tool for doing straightforward design. And you can save the file to your PC to include in other documents. See: Cumulate Draw 0.5.5 Release (Supporting IE 6+,Firefox 1.5+)
A scathing satire of the IT industry and genius-boy himself.
And here’s the blog.
The NOTCOT has alot of great design featured on it’s site (it’s not all Homer Simpson). It’s well worth checking out.
I really liked this WWF billboard that uses shadows to illustrate…well, read the blog.
I don’t read Harper’s Bazaar, but thankfully others do and blog about it. So I get to see the Simpsons in all their haute couture glory. I particularily like this one of Homer and Karl. (I also like the Gautier). See NOTCOT: Simpsons Couture
