Best GIF Ever; New Gondry Vid; etc.

Random interesting design bits I’ve encountered while shirking my actual job duties:

  • Best. Animated GIF. Ever. With a perfect soundtrack to boot. (I knew there was a reason we brought animated GIF creation into Photoshop CS2.) [via]
  • Director Michel Gondry and the White Stripes team up again to make your head hurt & make you like it. (This is timely if you were losing sleep wondering what a mash-up of Conan, Terry Gilliam, and those weird WEFAIL puppets would look like.) [via] (Previous Gondry/Stripes brilliance here and here.)
  • Coudal Partners, original proponents of Photoshop Tennis, have produced the clever short film Copy Goes Here. The mellow pace means you can’t jam in a screening while waiting for, say, your online banking to refresh, but it’s good for a laugh when you have 10 minutes or so. [via]
  • Here’s a zoom interface you don’t see every day: Justin Everett-Church has skinned the new Yahoo Maps in a pirate theme, complete with extending spyglass. (He’s also done a radar theme). [via]

Chris Ware in Berkeley on Saturday

If you happen to be in the Bay Area on Saturday and like comics and/or retro design (or if you’re just a giant NPR dork like me), you may want to check out Chris Ware and Ira Glass speaking at Berkeley this Saturday. I’m looking forward to it. [More links to Chris’s work are here and here.]
