Three radios designed by Dieter Rams for Braun between 1959-1963. While you’re at it, why not brush up on Rams ten principles for good design. (via annelinnting)

Design student Ricky Linn illustrated this faux Time Magazine cover for a class assignment. I agree with his self-assessment, it’s pretty genius. Time needs to get to work on the accompanying article stat.

A great promo to attract students into the graduate program at Dare, a large interactive agency in London.

On a related note, this infographic trailer for Waiting for Superman is killer.

Moog releases the Filtatron for iPhone

October 18, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Today Moog releases the Filtatron for the iPhone, probably one of the more advanced sound apps ever made for the iOS platform. I’d be stepping out of my comfort zone to discuss “four-pole resonant Moog Ladders” or that the “sound quality and can be modulated by its own LFO” — I have no idea what this means, but does it sound awesome? Yes. And if I can whip up a follow-up track to Popcorn by Hot Butter using my phone while riding the train, well excuse me if I don’t post for awhile, I’ll be modulating my Moog Ladder.
