Johnny Joo Photographs Forgotten Structures Overtaken by Nature

@David Pelaez

Photographer Johnny Joo explores abandoned structures overtaken by the natural surroundings that had originally been tamed to make space for them. Joo captures ferris wheels, cottages, malls, schools, armories, and thruways as they slip back into obscurity, covered in undergrowth, vines, and trees. Based in Cleveland, Ohio, the 27-year-old photographer has spent the last ten years traversing the country to explore abandoned spaces. In 2012, Joo started a blog, Architectural Afterlife, where he features his work and writes reflections on his explorations and the history of the all-but-forgotten locations. Joo has published three books of his photographs, and is currently working on a fourth book, which is available for pre-order. He also shares updates on InstagramTwitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

Happy Moon Day!

by Leticia Roncero

July 20th is Moon Day, an occasion to remember and celebrate the day man first landed on the moon. On this day in 1969, American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set the first human feet on a surface other than Earth, and Armstrong spoke the famous phrase, “that’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

The primary objective of the Apollo 11 mission was to complete a goal set by American President John F. Kennedy on May 25, 1961: perform a crewed landing on the moon and return safely to Earth. Additional objectives included photographing the lunar surface, deploy scientific equipment, improve designs for spacecraft and rocketry, and document the experience with still and motion picture cameras.


In October 2015, Flickr became home to a collection of more than 8,400 un-processed, high-resolution images from the NASA moon missions uploaded by The Project Apollo Archive. The collection, available for viewing and for download, includes original scans from the Hasselblad cameras the astronauts used to document their missions, including some of the most iconic space photos in History. We invite you to enjoy Moon Day and relive this historic day by visiting the many Public Domain images from the landing available on Flickr! We’ve also created a commemorative Flickr gallery here. Tell us in a comment which photo is your favorite from the Apollo Mission!

Arabic Words Illustrated to Match Their Literal Meaning by Mahmoud Tammam

by Kate Sierzputowski
Sofía Henao

@David Pelaez

“Cat”, “Duck”, “Dog”, “Fox”.

Egypt-based graphic designer Mahmoud Tammam creates simple modifications of Arabic words, transforming the language into visual representations of their meaning. The words Tammam chooses to design are often animals, turning long slopes into a llama’s neck, or a series of curves into an octopus’s tentacles. By creating these pictorial translations he allows the words to be understood by those not familiar or well-versed with the Arabic language, a minimal gesture that leads to a much greater understanding.

You can see more examples of Tammam’s illustrated language on his Instagram and Behance. (via My Modern Met)

"Se requiere experiencia gobernando el país": Spotify ofrece empleo a Obama

Si el presidente Barack Obama aún se pregunta que hará cuando deje la Casa Blanca el 20 de enero, ya tiene una oferta de empleo de Spotify.

El líder mundial del servicio de streaming anunció el lunes que tiene un puesto vacante de "Presidente de las Listas de Reproducción" y dijo que buscaba a un candidato con "al menos ocho años de experiencia gobernando una nación en alta estima".

Y para evitar cualquier duda sobre a quién tiene en mente, Spotify aclaró que busca a alguien con "buen espíritu de equipo, ética de trabajo excelente, una actitud amistosa y cálida y que sea un premio Nobel de la Paz".

La compañía dijo que el Presidente de las Listas de Reproducción estará a cargo de diseñar listas de canciones para ocasiones que van desde "tirar una pelota al aro de básquet con tus amigos" a preparar un discurso "sobre legislación de salud pública que lleva tu nombre".

El presidente de la empresa sueca, Daniel Ek, anunció la oferta de empleo luego de que Obama mencionara la posibilidad de un empleo en Spotify, según contó Natalia Brzezinski, la esposa del exembajador estadounidense en Suecia Mark Brzezinski.

La esposa del exembajador escribió en Instagram que Obama le dijo en una recepción en la Casa Blanca la semana pasada que su visita de 2013 a Estocolmo fue su "viaje favorito·.

"'Todavía estoy esperando mi empleo en Spotify... Porque sé que a todos ustedes les gustó mi lista de reproducción'", dijo Obama, según Natalia Brzezinski.

Durante dos veranos consecutivos Obama difundió listas de Spotify para escuchar en las vacaciones, revelando su gusto por el soul clásico y el jazz.

Space saving Skull-saver

by Sarang Sheth

We’ve all seen the collapsible paper helmet. It’s sturdy, and folds into an unsuspecting flat piece of board that can be carried and unfolded and worn again. However, not many people feel comfortable putting their trust in paper to protect something as precious as their skull. The Fend takes what’s best about the paper helmet, its fold-ability, and breathable design, and puts it into a conventional helmet, creating something that is volumes better in shock absorption, but still manages to be foldable.

The design doesn’t deviate from regular helmets in material choice. Made out of ABS and with an EPS Foam lining, the Fend feels like any other helmet. It’s only when you’re packing it away that you marvel the wonderful folding interaction. The entire design collapses into a mass not more than 110mm wide. That’s enough to not just fit into a laptop bag, but even a regular purse! Gives a different meaning to ‘carrying protection with you’, doesn’t it?!

Designer: FEND
