Holes

I think the Adobe creative team must have been eating a lot of donuts lately. Holes seem to be a feature of these two new Adobe logos I've found.

The Five Competencies

Yes, it's about as dry as a dessert of parchment, but over on UXMatters Steve Psomas presents a dissection of User Experience Design and the roles and skills needed for various parts of it. I hate the word "competencies" and I'm sure that this shouldn't be regarded as the final word on the subject, but I do like an attempt to bring clarity to an area which has got so many overlapping terms and meanings.

There's also a handy downloadable pdf which is always nice I feel.

Lightwriting

Light_graffiti_3_2

Graffiti artists in Berlin are replacing spray cans with torches, glow sticks  and digital cameras. The results are stunning as proved by Flickr user, lichtfaktor. The technique loosely involves setting the cameras to over expose and painting with various lights in the shot. Essentially a form of stop  motion animation, light writing employs a phenomenon known as persistence of vision which creates the optical illusion to the viewer.

Some companies are even employing the technique to form the part of their visual identity, Joost for example.
